The concept of “investment grade” tenants has its own special meaning for RTL (and GNL , also ext managed by AR Global. ) It includes “implied investment grade.” IMHO, IIG is a “no obligation” rating and hence is one notch down from the “moral obligation” bond-type rating.
“As used herein, investment grade includes both actual investment grade ratings of the tenant or guarantor, if available, or implied investment grade ratings. Implied investment grade ratings may include actual ratings of tenant parent, guarantor parent (regardless of whether or not the parent has guaranteed the tenant’s obligation under the lease) or a proprietary Moody’s analytical tool, which generates an implied rating by measuring a company’s probability of default.”
— So hypothetically, if say Ray Dalio, the in-the-news multi billionaire, has a hypothetical disowned penniless son living at Rescue Mission, and the son guarantees a ton of subprime mortgages , voila, the loans are now all investment grade. (A guarantor’s parent right?)
— “Moody’s $864m penalty for ratings in run-up to 2008 financial crisis” – 2017 headline.
I don’t usually read REIT footnotes, but I do read a lot of REIT pumper articles. This makes me wonder what’s under the hood on the companies being touted as holding investment grade investments.

Just my opinion.
BJ office REITS are in the news. What is next? I have been looking at industrial and grocery anchored REITS but who is to say?
CTO announces earnings after market close today.
I would guess that CTO’s report will be good. It just bumped its divvy up ~5.6%
BJ I did a quick skim of the report for CTO and I didn’t feel it was all that great but I am no CPA , Starting an ATM common stock program and a public offering stock offering in Dec. added 4 million new shares. Net debt to pro forma ? EBITDA was 7.3x
If someone can explain how great this is I would be interested
