Is it a good company at a reasonable price? I think that the stock price is reasonable at this time. The Liquidity Ratio is a problem. However, this has always been low and they have managed in the past. They have done well as a REIT for their shareholders in the past.

I do not own this stock of Allied Properties Real Estate Investment Trust (TSX-AP.UN, OTC-APYRF). Since several stocks that I followed in 2015 were deleted from the stock exchange, I was looking for other stocks to follow. I am sure that I got this from a Canadian Dividend site called Think Dividends, but I cannot find it at present.

When I was updating my spreadsheet, I noticed that although Revenue is growing nicely, Revenue per Share is not. Revenue has increase by 8% and 11% per year over the past 5 and 10 years. Revenue per Share has decreased by 0.6% and increase by 1.65% per year over the past 5 and 10 years. This is because the growing number of outstanding shares. Shareholders should be interested in growth of both these items.

If you had invested in this company in December 2011, $1002.38 you would have bought 40 shares at $25.28 per share. In December 2021, after 10 years you would have received $607.86 in dividends. The stock would be worth $1,758. Your total return would have been $2,365.86.

Cost | Tot. Cost | Shares | Years | Dividends | Stock Val | Tot Ret |
---|---|---|---|---|---|---|

$25.28 | $1,011.20 | 40 | 10 | $607.86 | $1,758.00 | $2,365.86 |

The dividend yields are moderate with dividend growth low. The current dividend yield is moderate (2% to 4% ranges) at 4.05%. The 5, 10 and historical median dividend yields are also moderate at 3.68%, 4.05% and 4.71%. The dividend increases are low (below 8%) with increases for the past 5 years at 2.08% per year. The last dividend increase was in 2022 and it was for 2.89%.

In the chart below, you can see what the potential dividend yield would be in 5 to 15 years at the current rate of 2.08. For example, in 15 years you could expect to receive a yield of 5.66% on your original investment if you bought today. The last column shows the what has happened in the past. For example, people who bought this stock 15 years ago are receiving a current yield of 7.98% on their original investment.

Div Yd | Years | At IRR | Div Inc | Act Past Inc |
---|---|---|---|---|

4.60% | 5 | 2.08% | 10.86% | 4.62% |

5.10% | 10 | 2.08% | 22.91% | 6.04% |

5.66% | 15 | 2.08% | 36.26% | 7.98% |

The Dividend Payout Ratios (DPR) are fine. The DPR for EPS for 2021 is 49% with 5 year coverage at 35%. The DPR for Cash Flow per Share for 2021 is 61% with 5 year coverage at 56%. The DPR for Free Cash Flow for 2021 is 90% with 5 year coverage at 69%.

Debt Ratios are fine, but very low liquidity ratio can be a problem. The Long Term Debt/Market Cap Ratio for 2021 is 0.61. The Liquidity Ratio is 0.94. If you add in cash flow after dividends it is still 0.99. The company does have a lot of assets as the Asset/Current Liability Ratio is 30.58. The problem with a very low Liquidity Ratio is that a company could get into difficulties quickly in an economic downturn and have to sell assets at fire sale prices. The Debt Ratio is good at 2.62. Leverage and Debt/Equity Ratios are good at 1.62 and 0.62.

The Total Return per year is shown below for years of 5 to 18 to the end of 2021. Under the Capital Gain column is the portion of the Total Return attributable to capital gains. Under the Dividend column is the portion of the Total Return attributable to dividends. See chart below.

From | Years | Div. Gth | Tot Ret | Cap Gain | Div. |
---|---|---|---|---|---|

2016 | 5 | 2.08% | 8.22% | 4.10% | 4.12% |

2011 | 10 | 2.54% | 10.44% | 5.69% | 4.75% |

2006 | 15 | 2.28% | 9.05% | 4.34% | 4.71% |

2003 | 18 | 4.09% | 13.71% | 7.07% | 6.64% |

The corresponding 10 year ratios are 17.66, 20.06 and 22.68. The current P/AFFO Ratio is 20.10 based on AFFO estimate for 2022 of $2.15 and a stock price of $43.22.

When I look at analysts’ recommendations, I find Strong Buy (3), Buy (8) and Hold (2). The consensus would be a Buy. The 12 month stock price consensus is $50.69. This implies a total return of 20.64% with 16.59% from capital gains and 4.05% from dividends based on a stock price of $43.22.

When I looked at analysts’ recommendations last year, I found Strong Buy (3), Buy (7) and Hold (2). The consensus was a Buy. The 12 month stock price consensus was $45.23. This implies a total return of 26.87%, with 22.28% from capital gains and 4.60% from dividends based on a stock price of $39.66. What happened was an ending stock price of $43.22 and so a total return of 12.14% with 8.08% from capital gains and 4.06% from dividends based on a stock price of $39.99. Last year I thought the stock price was reasonable.

The most recent recommendation on Stock Chase is a hold. Adam Othman on Motley Fool thinks this is a great REIT at an attractive price. Tony Dong on Motley Fool thinks REITs are a great way of owning Real Estate without the hassle. The company reports on Newswire their fourth quarterly results. A report from Simply Wall Street on Yahoo Finance looks at insider buying.
