Portfolio Newsletter Holding Digital Realty Targets Secular Growth Trends to Support Dividend Growth Trajectory
Image Shown: Digital Realty Trust is one of our favorite ways to indirectly play several secular growth trends at once. The data center real estate investment trust (‘REIT’) pays out a nice dividend that’s supported by its investment grade credit ratings, a solid cash flow profile, and a promising growth trajectory.Digital Realty Trust has been a resilient performer in both the Dividend Growth Newsletter and High Yield Newsletter portfolios, and we continue to like the name. Due to the data center REIT’s impressive dividend growth profile, a product of the double-digit annual growth rate in its funds from operations (‘FFO’) since 2005, shares of DLR yield a nice ~3.6% as of this writing.

Dividend Growth Newsletter Portfolio Holding Realty Income Keeps Chugging Along
Image Shown: Shares of Realty Income Corporation have performed quite well over the past year, keeping recent headwinds in mind. Dividend Growth Newsletter portfolio holding Realty Income Corp posted a modest increase in its adjusted funds from operations (‘AFFO’) on a per share during its third quarter 2019 earnings report published November 4. Billing itself as “The Monthly Dividend Company” with a ~3.5% yield as of this writing, this REIT has paid out over 590 consecutive monthly dividends during its 50-year long operating history and has increased its per share payout over 100 times since going public in 1994. We caution that shares of O will continue to experience volatility as expectations of future interest rates are currently in flux.

DGN Holding Realty Income Continues Moving Higher
We like Realty Income and think there’s room for additional upside. As growth in global economic activity continues slowing down, weakening demand for US exports and hurting business confidence, the Federal Reserve is increasingly leaning towards additional rate cuts. REITs are major beneficiaries of a lower interest rate environment, especially those with top quality investment grade credit ratings and nice long growth runways like Realty Income.

Shares of DGN Holding Digital Realty Climbing Upwards
Image Source: Digital Realty Trust -- IR Presentation. Digital Realty is trading right above the top end of our fair value estimate range as of this writing, but we are keeping this holding in our Dividend Growth Newsletter portfolio given its strong technical performance. We think excitement over the prospect of the Federal Reserve cutting interest rates will continue to drive shares of higher yielding names higher, which includes high-quality data center REITs like Digital Realty.

Realty Income Posts Solid Earnings, Acquires Overseas Real Estate for First Time
Image Source: Realty Income Corporation – IR Presentation. We liked what we saw in Realty Income’s second quarter 2019 earnings report, and we appreciate management reiterating guidance for the full year. While Realty Income’s payout ratio could be a tad lower, its consistent financial performance and solid investment grade credit ratings indicate its dividend is secure for the time being.

A New Measure of Leverage for Dividend-Growth and Income-Oriented Shareholders, One That Is Dividend-Adjusted
As more and more investors rely on company dividends for income, dividends, in our view, have become more debt-like commitments in nature, especially from the perspective of dividend-growth or income-oriented shareholders. We plan to roll out a new measure of financial leverage that considers both the company’s debt and the present value of its future expected cash dividend obligations, which, in the eyes of die-hard dividend-growth or income-oriented shareholders, may be implicitly assumed to be debt-like commitments in substance. We think this leverage ratio can be used in conjunction with the Dividend Cushion ratio to gain additional insight into the dividend-paying financial health of an entity.
