On CAPS, all 11 members who have rated STAG believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.
This one is not quite as "special" as my normal special situation picks, but I think that it will continue to significantly outperform the market. Besides, what [can I say] ... I'm a sucker for yield.
Stag is the fastest growing company in the solid Industrial REIT sector, yet is also pays the highest dividend. That doesn't make much sense and will not continue if Stag continues to perform the way it has.
According to REIT expert Brad Thomas, Stag has moderate leverage and sector-best metrics. This trade is a bet that Mr. [M]arket will eventually recognize this quality and award STAG with a higher multiple. We are paid a yield of nearly 6% to wait for this to happen.
If you want to retire rich, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite its five-star rating, STAG may not be your top choice.
