Thomas McGuinness, president and CEO of InvenTrust Properties Corp., joined REIT.com for a CEO Spotlight video interview at REITWorld 2016: NAREIT’s Annual Convention for All Things REIT at the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge. InvenTrust is a public non-listed REIT that focuses on open air retail centers. McGuinness said the company has pursued a divestment strategy for the last two years. It includes the spinning off of its Xenia Hotels & Resorts, Inc. (NYSE: XHR) lodging platform and the spinning off of its Highlands REIT, Inc. subsidiary. The company also sold a student housing portfolio for more than $1 billion. Most of InvenTrust’s markets are in the South, where population growth is occurring more rapidly than elsewhere, McGuinness said. The company is focusing on acquiring multi-tenant properties, including power centers and grocery-anchored community shopping centers, McGuinness said. McGuiness also commented on the state of the retail market. “We think the fundamentals on retail are incredible,” he said. New development is limited, while “retailers are doing a better job on embracing the internet and using their stores as distribution facilities,” McGuinness added. By Sarah Borchersen-Keto
Michael Hudgins, real estate strategist with J.P. Morgan Asset Management, joined REIT.com for a video interview in Chicago at REITWeek 2013: NAREIT's Investor Forum. With commercial real estate property pricing at the 2007 market peaks, Hudgins discussed how trends in pricing are affecting his outlook for REIT investment. "REITs right now are growing cash flow from a depressed base," he said. "They've moved past this peak, but still are generating [net operating income] at the property level of about 4 percent year on year. Additionally, I see no reason why with low supply and incremental demand that REITs can't continue to grow that NOI at a 3 percent year-on-year rate for the next couple of years. What that means is that year on year, as the cash flow increases at the property level, values should increase." Hudgins also offered his opinion on the value of REIT shares in the current market environment. "I like to remind investors that REITs are a combination of three things - real estate, equity and bonds," he said. "When I look at REITs right now, they look expensive versus equities. They still look slightly cheap versus bonds. The tiebreaker is real estate. Rationally, REITs should be trading at a premium to real estate." Hudgins gave a preview of what he thought would be the major stories in the REIT market in the second half of the year. "I'm, personally, curious to see how single-family housing REITs do," he said. "Do they demonstrate that they can actually be cash generators? I think that's going to be critical. If you're going to be a REIT, it's all about generating cash and paying out a dividend."

A business restructuring and a healthy book of loans will cause Prospect Capital's stock to rebound in 2015, said the company's President Grier Eliasek. Eliasek added that tax-loss selling and exclusion from the S&P Index has pressured the shares of business development companies across the board. He said he expects consumer credit focused investments to fare the best in the coming year, yet he is cautious about energy due to the collapse in the price of oil. Eliasek said Prospect is undergoing a restructuring to potentially unlock value via a trio of spinoffs. Finally, he said the company’s dividend offers investors a margin of safety now that it has been right-sized.

Learn more about Plum Creek’s conservation efforts in Maine at http://www.plumcreek.com/maine. Every spring, vernal pools are created in the forest when naturally occurring depressions in the landscape temporarily fill up with water from snow melt and overland runoff. These vernal pools typically dry up by early summer, but before they do they serve as an essential breeding ground and wildlife habitat to many species, including the spotted salamander, blue-spotted salamander, wood frog and fairy shrimp. Because vernal pools are temporary, they do not contain predatory year-round species that could eat or damage the eggs. Plum Creek and Sewall Co. are working together to map vernal pools in the 363,000-acre Moosehead Lake Region Conservation Easement in Maine. The mapping project, one of the largest of its kind in the world, uses 3-D infrared technology to provide Plum Creek wildlife biologists with a tool to help identify potential aquatic breeding areas and thus help guide forest management practices in order to protect wildlife.
