Investing in REITs provides a higher dividend yield compared to the broader market and with the recent underperformance, REITs also provide a better value. Buying the REIT index, however, would involve buying the bad REITs along with the good ones. Instead, I prefer to amplify and maximize the benefits of REIT investing through a hand-selected, diversified portfolio of REITs that are individually and collectively positioned to outperform. We call this portfolio 2CHYP.
Although 2CHYP consists entirely of REITs, the differences between 2CHYP and the REIT index are massive.
A 9.22% dividend yield more than doubles the index 2CHYP's 7.9X 2018 estimated P/FFO is less than half that of the index A 72.9% payout ratio is lower than that of the index at 80.7% In brief, this collection of stocks provides a much bigger dividend yield fully covered by the oversized cash flows that come from buying stocks at deep values. Since its inception on 7/1/16, 2CHYP has been a high yield portfolio but, today, that term applies more than ever before as the carrying yield has risen to 9.22% as of 3/31/18. It has always been a value portfolio, and that also applies to a greater extent today with a P/FFO of 7.9X.
This article will detail the entirety of 2CHYP's holdings, why we own each name, and how they fit together into a diversified portfolio.
