Educational Realty Trust (EDR)
"I've got the wacky one for you. I think you should stuff some money into Educational Realty Trust (EDR)
and I don't care that it was up big on friday.It is still an incredibly
cheap REIT (real estate investment trust). It's got a fabulous yield.
You hold onto this baby for a year and you should get 8.3% dividend!
That's the kind of yield that's so high, it's only acceptable from
something like a reit, that is legally required to kick back most of
its profits to investors.In other co. I'd tell you 8.3% yield was the
stock's tombstone but, with EDR, it's just a lot of moolah in your
pocket."..."They buy up apartments around college campuses. They fix
them up, and then they rent out them out to students - holy cow, that's
got pin action written all over it. A terrific business eclipsed only
by prison real estate business.They've got 59 properties. You know,
Chapel Hill, Penn. State, some of that Cal State Schools and Ohio
State, among others; but their properties are primarily clustered in
the south and in the rust belt.
Again, I’m thinking in the future, about what EDR ought to do while you're being paid to wait with an 8% dividend, while they do.Since this one is a REIT, it's also a great hedge against inflation. you'll be sinking your money in real estate so it should be safe as your cash gets less and less valuable.Bottom line!: I think you need to own EDR, because as they move in on urban schools, they should be one of the best growth stories out there. until then, they're paying you to wait with that huge dividend. EDR - that's for you!
