Today, we take a look at another Canadian industrial-type REIT: Granite Real Estate Investment Trust (TSX:GRT.UN). Granite owns more than 90 logistics, warehouse and industrial properties in North America and Europe.
Industrial Alliance Securities analyst Frederic Blondeau recently raised his target price on Granite REIT to $79 from $75, while maintaining a “Buy” rating on the units, after the Company announced an agreement to acquire eight U.S. income-producing properties for $332 million.
Mr. Blondeau noted that Granite, as at May 26, was able to collect 98% of rents due for the month of May. And, 99% of April’s rents had also been collected.
Granite REIT’s current liquidity position is $1.1 billion, and while the Industrial Alliance Securities analyst doesn’t expect the REIT to announce new acquisitions during the remainder of 2020, he does expect Granite to acquire $800 million in property in 2021.
GRT.UN has a current yield of 3.8%.
