I did some updates to my dividend stock tracker. I realise a lot of people are turned off by some REITs listed here that are showing huge negative earnings or huge cash flow. The reason that occurs is because of property purchases throughout the year affecting their earnings and free cash flow.
For REITs, I will be reporting earnings sans property revaluation to reflect whether the earnings yield coincides with their dividend yield.
You can see that all 4 look much respectable now.
First REIT in particular looks good, and remains a favorite of mine. The good thing is that although debt to asset is 14% its cash is high as well. Its net debt to asset is roughly less than 10% now.
Aims Amp Industrial have went up a lot recently but its dividend can get boosted by its redevelopment, but that would also take its debt to asset above the 30% currently, so you can say it’s a leverage play.
