Investment Q&A

Not investment advice or solicitation to buy/sell securities. Do your own due diligence and/or consult an advisor.

Q: I'm a roughly 50/50 income/growth investor with the income being an important part of our retirement income.

Given that REITs are generally high debt equities I'm questioning how they'll fare given the current environment of rising interest rates and and increasing costs. Will they be able to offset those increased costs by raising rents?

I'd first like you to comment on my assumptions as to what is going on. Agree or disagree.

Secondly I'd like you to comment on the specific REITs that I've mentioned. I'm sure they're all different based debt maturities and rental contracts. The average length of their rental contracts may work against them if it's longer while the average maturity of their debt may work for them if it's longer. Cost increases are now.

Q: Good Morning,

Thanks for your excellent service. I owe INO.UN and CHP.UN in REIT. Looking to replace them with 1 Industrial/Commercial/ REIT and 1 residential REIT. Looking for long term growth and not much concerned about Income. Can you recommend 2 REITS in each space with brief comments on the rationale that there long term prospects will be better then the one I am replacing.

Thanks and have a great day

Q: Would appreciate it very much ranking the above based on your expectation of total return over 3 to 5 years period. I wish to consolidate these number into less positions. In particular I am thinking of selling FCR at a loss and perhaps add to GRT.un or one of the others,

Q: I am looking to "trim the fat" from my TFSA, which currently holds 20 stocks: ATD, BCE, BMO, BNS, CCO, CM, ENB, FFH, PDYPF, INO.UN, LAS, NXE, NWC, NA, NTR, PEY, PZA, MJJ, TRP, WELL. Are there any positions that raise red flags with you? In addition, could you suggest 3 or 4 value picks suitable for a long-term hold (20 years plus)?
Thank you!

Q: in light of rei.un decision to cut distribution by 33 percent are there any reits in the same space that might now be considering a cut or are there any reits in general that could cut the distribution? thanks Richard

Q: Hi,
I'm looking for income and hopefully a little growth as well. I currently own GRT/UN.TO, CAR/UN.TO and have some of DRG/UN.TO from before the buyout. Would you be able to rate these choices in order of preference? What % weight would you recommend for this sector at the moment, and do you foresee that weighting being changed as we head into Q1 next year? These will be held in a cash account, so should I be considering the potential tax implications? Deduct as many credits as you need. Thanks for all your hard work,

Q: In a question from Gord yesterday you suggested INO.UN as REIT that would provide investment in Germany and France. It is a small cap with a very high yield which leads me to request your assessment on the risk assessment of this company. Is the company higher risk, given it's small size and investment in Europe. Also, how safe is the dividend at it's current lofty level?
