We analyze the risk levels of four Canadian REITs with dividend yields that exceed their peer averages

SmallCapPower | November 17, 2017: Today we have identified four Canadian REITs with dividend yields averaging 9%. In order to assess the risk levels of current payouts, we have provided the Cash Distribution/Funds from Operations Ratio. The Cash Distributions/FFO ratio is used to determine what portion of a Company’s funds from operations are being used to pay distributions. The method is preferable to the traditional dividend payout ratio because it informs investors what portion of cash from operations was used to pay distributions, as opposed to net income, which is not cash reconciled. In addition, using cash distributions factors out the effects of Dividend Re-Investment Programs (DRIP), which pay out distributions in the form of additional units.
