Who Paid The Rent? Earnings Halftime Report

Updated: Sep 10, 2020

  • Did the rent get paid? We just passed the halfway point of another newsworthy REIT earnings season. Results thus far have generally been better than expected with nearly a dozen REITs boosting guidance.

  • After 59 equity REITs and 30 mortgage REITs announced a dividend cut in March through June, just one additional REIT has announced a reduction since the start of July.

  • Rent collection has remained largely a non-factor for the "essential" property sectors with collection rates averaging over 95% while retail REITs have noted a steady and sequential improvement since April.

  • While there haven't been any significant "fireworks" thus far, the back-half of REIT earnings season is where we'll see results from most of the troubled property sectors and more highly-levered REITs.
