(STWD), Includes: BXMTby: Brad ThomasBrad Thomas iREIT on AlphaThe #1 REIT service for investors who strive to SLEEP WELL AT NIGHT SummaryStarwood recently declared its standard $0.48 quarterly dividend while many other equity and mortgage REITs slash their distributions.
This mortgage REIT or mREIT trades at 50% of its 52-week high despite its $4.0 billion market capitalization ranking #1 in the segment.
While we have historically preferred similarly sized Blackstone Mortgage Trust over Starwood, we wake up every day with an open mind.
We take a deep dive on this 13.8% yielding mortgage REIT and its $17 billion portfolio.
This article was coproduced with Williams Equity Research.
At iREIT, we cover a growing universe of equity and mortgage REITs, and our emphasis has always been quality research. We have become fixated recently on commercial mREITs, a sector that offers compelling risk-adjusted opportunities given the disruption in certain property sectors due to Covid-19.
To be clear, this unique REIT sector requires specialization and a skillset beyond that of Average Joe or Jane. That being said, our team of analysts have decades of experience in finance and commercial real estate, and this is why we produce such in-depth research for our customers.
One of our paying members have asked us to explore Starwood Property Trust (STWD) and this article is in direct response to that inquiry. As a result of our research, we are adding STWD to our Cash Is King Portfolio and upgrading (in our iREIT Tracker) to a Strong Spec Buy.
