Digital Realty Starts 2020 Off Right
Image Source: Digital Realty Trust Inc – Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2019 IR Earnings Presentation. On February 13, the data center real estate investment trust (‘REIT’) Digital Realty Trust reported fourth quarter and full-year earnings for 2019 after the market close. The firm’s top-line marginally missed consensus estimates as its funds from operations (‘FFO’) per share modestly beat consensus estimates. Shares of DLR marched up 4% on February 14 as investors priced in the FFO per share beat and recent events. We continue to like shares of DLR as a holding in our Dividend Growth Newsletter portfolio. As of this writing, Digital Realty yields ~3.3%.

Dividend Growth Newsletter Portfolio Delivers Again in 2019
 The story of the Dividend Growth Newsletter portfolio this year was one dominated by big tech. Apple trounced the return of what could be considered our benchmark by about 80 percentage points. It basically beat the S&P Dividend ETF SDPR by a factor of about 5 times! 2019 was simply the year to own Apple, and my goodness we had it right near the top of both the Best Ideas Newsletter portfolio and Dividend Growth Newsletter portfolio.

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.
