gtw I thought you would have been put out to pasture by now. Your opinion rants are getting old.
Sir raised the div multiple times since the IPO,its also quite possible that the smaller payout ratio was designed to get the company their investment grade rating. Everything is a conspiracy with you,there are 100's of reits out there to invest in surely a man with your knowledge can find one replace SIR.
I suggest EQC
Looks like the smart money can read SEC filings not like many on this board,my guess is a 2.10 div by the end of 2015 and that is still way below what they could pay
Its getting killed along with the rest of the REITS,but LXP has their own problems,flat earnings and flat div. If things were going well they would have raised the div that is below average for triple nets,they didn't so suffer. Besides that its a dog
Maybe it does matter,sorry charlie,but the company sucks. New management made a killing on the SIR sale and they have reduced debt,other than that Zell and crew are getting a bunch of money for doing nothing. The company has a lot of great assets to go along with some dogs that they don't know what to do with. Guess what they are no better than RMR and you don't even get a few pennies in a div.
Unless they make some positive moves the stock will be go down some more,maybe a bunch
I don't follow the pure play energy mutual funds or related energy ETF's but I am sure that a lot of stocks included in them are down because they sell the whole basket. If an investor has extra funds and knows that an issue will meet earnings and divs there is a lot of money to be made from this selloff
It looks like an analyst has factored in the Cole numbers. Gross is up to 442m and net income of 1.59 per share. Income is way down due to a huge increase in depreciation,FFO should be over 2.80.
I am not crazy about the deal but SIR should have no problem raising the div to at least 2.00 for 2015
Get real,EQC is smoke and mirrors,the return is purely on speculation. The share price has risen the actual results are no better or worse.
Corvex will rape the current flock,get back all their expenses and then some back from the takeover leaving nothing left. Meanwhile the garbage divIdend is now ZERO.
Investors don't want them to buy anything,if they do the naysayers(rmr haters) will only say that they are doing it to get more management fees. Best thing for HPT at this time is to continue and finish the remodels of the hotels/motels they own which will increase FFO,
It was downgraded from buy to hold by Benchmark,looks like they have more pull than I thought,
I know that Stifel hates RMR,so an upgrade of a company that RMR manages is very strange. Its possible that HPT is about done remodeling properties,that alone will add a bunch of FFO. I don't own any at this time,if I did I wouldn't sell
RUNAMOK,You know damm well why RMR didn't want to lose CWH,it was called assets under management. Didn't matter how well they did all that mattered was having them to collect their fees.
When the Corvex groupies get tired of losing money with the stock they will start bailing
turbo,Let me first say that I am not condoning the actions by management during the past 6 months. The new issue a while back was way more than it had to be and it resulted in a drop of FFO because they didn't have a need for all the funds raised.
I am against the Cole deal because of lack of info,yes we know how the deal is supposed to be financed and we know what they are buying and supposedly why. That doesn't tell an investor anything.
In regards to the current drop,it has to do with the Cole deal and analyst dislike for RMR. There is nothing short term that I can see that is hurting the stock,and I believe they will beat the estimates for this quarter.
I guess it is just dumb investing in an issue associated with RMR
On paper they should get a really great rating from S&P. They might even get lucky with the 10 year sitting below 2.3 at this time with no real reason for it to get much higher
Not true anymore,a bunch of their fee is in stock and some of their fee is based on the stock price. At this time they are also taking a beating. Don't shed a tear for them but things have changed a little bit
runamok,first of all I don't own and never will any shares of GOV,what they paid for SIR is their problem. Secondly,your new proud and joy sold 200m of properties#$%$) last quarter,they DID NOT sell any of the Australian properties as of the last presentation in Sept.
They own the same properties that CWH had and you called them garbage,did they just get better,I don't think so.
So yuk yuk to you
I don't own any reits at this time
