My Thoughts

This is the 5th REIT that I currently have in my portfolio. I do plan to add more to this one as I find it to be a high quality undervalued REIT. The company has been increasing its dividend for 9 straight years. SPG has a 5-year dividend growth rate of 12.56%. The most recent increase was 2.4% in July. The company has a history of increasing its dividend every 2 quarters.

Also, the Simon Property Group currently has a dividend payout ratio of 70%. This has been about the average for the past 5-years.

Another metric to look at is the company 5-year dividend yield average of 3.7%. Currently, the company has a dividend yield of 5.47%. This is over 150 basis points vs its 5-year average.

With all that said, I find SPG to be undervalued, and I recommend it as a BUY at this time. I have a fair value price of $181.32. This means that SPG is 18.7% undervalued based on today’s price of $152.79 (10/21/2019).
