Public Storage Is Simply A Monster REIT Idea!
Image Shown: We examine the traditional operating metrics of the REITs with a focus on traditional free cash flow, dividends paid, and traditional balance sheet analysis where we assess net debt positions. Most REITs fail to cover their dividends with traditional free cash flow and boast huge net debt positions. Public Storage remains one of our very favorite REITs, however. Its free cash flow coverage of the payout and manageable financial leverage are exactly what we’re looking for. There are a number of industry-specific metrics that REITs use including funds from operations (FFO) and adjusted funds from operations (AFFO), but we think more traditional analysis helps to offer incremental insights while adding considerable informational value when used in conjunction with industry-specific REIT analysis. The REIT with the best combination of dividend yield, free cash flow generation in excess of cash dividends paid, and leverage (as measured by net debt divided by annualized traditional free cash flow) is Public Storage. The company’s self-storage peers are runners up with respect to our favorites, followed by the tower stocks American Tower and SBA Communications, and then timber REIT Weyerhaeuser.

High-Yielding Crown Castle Is One of Our Favorite REITs
Image Shown: We include Crown Castle International Corp as an idea in our High Yield Dividend Newsletter portfolio. Image Source: Crown Castle International Corp – October 2021 IR Presentation. Crown Castle International Corp is a real estate investment trust (‘REIT’) that owns and operates cell towers, fiber networks, and small cell nodes in the US. These assets form the backbone of wireless infrastructure and are key to enabling the domestic rollout of 5G networks and supporting existing 4G networks. We include shares of CCI in our High Yield Dividend Newsletter portfolio as we are big fans of its strong dividend coverage (when taking its ability to tap capital markets into account), impressive growth outlook, and high-quality cash flow profile. Shares of CCI yield ~2.9% as of this writing after the REIT boosted its quarterly dividend by 11% sequentially in October 2021, bringing its annualized payout up to $5.88 per share. Over the long haul, Crown Castle targets 7%-8% annual dividend growth. The REIT’s expansive asset base stretches across the US with operations in virtually every major metropolitan market. Crown Castle’s long-term contracts with its tenants (namely telecommunications giants) provide substantial visibility as it concerns its future cash flow performance. Additionally, Crown Castle generates substantial free cash flows, something we like a lot.

Digital Realty Boosts Guidance and Further Extends Growth Runway
Image Source: Digital Realty Trust Inc – Third Quarter of 2021 IR Earnings Presentation. On October 26, Digital Realty Trust posted third quarter 2021 earnings that beat both consensus top- and bottom-line estimates. The data center real estate investment trust (‘REIT’) saw its GAAP operating revenues come in at $1.1 billion (up 11% year-over-year) and its non-GAAP core funds from operations (‘FFO’) per share come in at $1.65 per share (up 7% year-over-year) last quarter. Digital Realty also increased its guidance in conjunction with its latest earnings report, which we appreciate, as that signals the REIT is growing confident that it will exit 2021 on a high note. When taking into consideration Digital Realty’s ability to tap capital markets at attractive rates (something we cover in this article), we give the REIT a “GOOD” Dividend Safety rating as its adjusted Dividend Cushion ratio is near parity at 0.7, which factors in expected dividend growth over the coming years. Additionally, we give Digital Realty a “GOOD” Dividend Safety rating, underpinned by its bright cash flow growth outlook. The top end of our fair value estimate range sits at $186 per share of DLR, well above where Digital Realty is trading at as of this writing.

High-Yield Idea CyrusOne Considers Selling Itself
Image Shown: Shares of CyrusOne, an idea included in our High Yield Dividend Newsletter portfolio, are on a modest upward climb of late. The data center real estate investment trust (‘REIT’) is reportedly considering putting itself up for sale, though we like the REIT’s income generation upside regardless of whether a sale does materialize as its outlook continues to improve after posting stellar performance during the first half of 2021. Reportedly, CyrusOne is actively exploring a potential sale according to Reuters. We include shares of CONE as an idea in the High Yield Dividend Newsletter portfolio. The data center real estate investment trust (‘REIT’) has experienced significant turnover in its top ranks over the past couple of years which we will cover briefly, as that likely set the stage for the potential sale. Should CyrusOne decide not to sell itself, we would still be fans of its business model, growth runway, improving outlook, and income generation potential. Let's dig into latest developments in this article.

We include shares of DLR as an idea in both the Dividend Growth Newsletter and High Yield Dividend Newsletter portfolios. Investors have been steadily warming up to Digital Realty this year, with shares of DLR up ~23% year-to-date, and we see room for additional upside as the top end of our fair value estimate range sits at $186 per share of Digital Realty.
