I am very comfortable with paying 95 cents ( current share price ). Cache is probably the REIT that is at fair value.
- A lot of REITs do not have much capital expenditure done on their properties. Seems like it is more asset acquisition rather than asset enhancements.
- Valuation is fair. For this price I pay for an annualized 8.2% yield or 48 mil in cash flow.
- Distribution is less than net property income
- Interest paid is very low. I was looking at Fortune REIT and they have a huge chunk of their net property income shaved by interest expense. Perhaps this 1.5 mil is just a small part of a bigger interest expense. It will be good if they can keep interest expense less than 10% of operating cash flow
