Twitter Rumblings on the Retail Rout

Random musings on the meltdown in REIT prices:

This is a bloodletting in triple-net REITs. $VER $O $NNN.

Glad to see $VER buying back shares. At current prices, that's a better use of funds than buying pricey real estate: https://seekingalpha.com/pr/16832306-vereit-inc-announces-200-million-share-repurchase-program

If $O drops another ~$2.50, its current yield would be over 5%. That would be a nice "buy, drop in a drawer, and never look again" price.

Federal Realty is at a new 52-week low. The REIT has raised its dividend for 49 consecutive years. $FRT http://www.crossingwallstreet.com/archives/2017/05/federal-realty-dividend-champ-at-a-new-52-week-low.html

@howardlindzon That's not the only REIT in the toilet right now. Some really good names down 20-30%.

@howardlindzon $O, $NNN, $STOR. All getting murdered by the "$AMZN destroying retail" narrative but all mostly Amazon proof.

@CharlesSizemore @howardlindzon $O doesn't have an amazon proof portfolio, and they have a large concentration in drug stores.

@CharlesSizemore @howardlindzon $O there are many convenience items serviced by drug stores today that are suited to the Amazon Go model

@CharlesSizemore @howardlindzon $O and many items sold by drug stores like cvs, walgreens, rite aid can be purchased for less on amazon.

@DrKillinger @howardlindzon We'll call it "Amazon resistant" rather than "Amazon proof," lol…
