Here is what Carillon Tower Advisers has to say about SBA Communications Corporation in their Q4 2020 investor letter:

"SBA Communications operates as a real estate investment trust (REIT) with a focus on wireless communications infrastructure. The firm reported favorable quarterly results with revenues ahead of expectations, and subsequently raised its guidance for the next year as well. Unfortunately, the company’s steady growth has been slightly overshadowed by other REITs that have shown faster growth prospects as the rollout and distribution of vaccines leads to a recovery in the economy."
