SUMMARY OF RECOMMENDATION

Our back of the envelope calculation for VREIT’s Net Income is P1.08 billion. From this, we project a dividends per share of P0.14 for 2022. At a final share price of P1.75, VREIT will have a projected dividend yield of 8.40%.

Among current REITs in the market, VREIT offers the highest potential dividend yield. In an industry that is known for its high payout ratio (Note: required to pay 90% of earnings to shareholders), VREIT could be a REIT to keep an eye for. VREIT also has a low price-to-book ratio (P/B). Foot traffic in malls is gradually picking up, with the retail segment slowly recovering occupancy. Expect VREIT to benefit from the rebound in the retail segment as consumers regain confidence and return to malls.
