EPR Properties (EPR) is a uniquely positioned real estate investment firm with a differentiated strategy targeting specialty property sectors such as movie theaters, ski areas, golf complexes, attractions and even public charter schools. The goal is to buy “experience”-related properties that can outperform the more traditional office and retail properties with highly enduring cash flow even in an increasingly digitized world.

So far, the results have been phenomenal with significant market outperformance and exceptionally high dividend payments to shareholders. Going forward, we expect this powerful strategy to continue producing outstanding results, unlocking substantial value for shareholders for years to come. Trading at just over $67 per share, EPR is yielding today an attractive 6.3% with a low 72% payout ratio and we expect a new dividend hike to be announced in the coming quarters.
During the year 2018, the share price of EPR has seen a strong recovery. Note that EPR managed to outperform the Vanguard Property REIT Index ETF (NYSEARCA: VNQ) by 11.6%, a pretty wide margin (using a "total return" basis):

In the long run, we remain strongly convinced that patient EPR shareholders are set to be well rewarded, and this is why we continue holding a Core Position in EPR as part of our High Quality Property REIT Portfolio.
