Dividend remains well covered here so as a REIT will they be obliged to add a top up payment?

PCTN looking seriously over-valued at 91.5p on a mere 4.7% discount and just a 3.52% yield. Bear in mind that their expensive debt at 4.2%pa (fixed for 9yrs) places severe restrictions on dividend growth. They should have rescheduled that debt long ago - bitten the bullet in the same way SREI did just over a year ago.

NAV update today and another one that has shown an increase this time by 3.0% to 95.5 pence (30/9/20 92.7 pence). Also qtrly div is up from 0.7 to 08p lifting yield to just shy of 4% on todays share price and 122% covered so scope for a bit more. Another one with weasel words over rent collection saying "87% of December 2020 rents have been collected or are expected to be received under monthly payment plans" So how much have they got in the bank and what still to come would be more transparent but each propco seems to have its format over this should be a minimum information requirement. Good asset mgt news and they've unloaded a big retail asset. https://www.londonstockexchange.com/news-article/PCTN/net-asset-value-as-at-31-december-2020/14843292

Latest 'paid for' Edison research note... Resilient performance with positive returns - HTTPS://www.edisongroup.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/Picton-Property-Income-Resilient-performance-with-positive-returns-.pdf In the challenging environment created by COVID-19, H121 results were resilient and we have increased our full-year FY21 forecast. Sector positioning, asset management and robust rent collection all contributed to performance. Portfolio returns were well ahead of the MSCI UK Quarterly Property Index and NAV total return was positive, underpinning the first steps in restoring the level of DPS towards pre-COVID-19 levels.

Pretty impressive results in view of the circumstances. They managed to turn a profit, EPRA NAV unchanged at 93p since Mar 20 and dividend cover of 129% excluding additional income (admittedly after a dividend reduction)... Half Year Results - HTTPS://www.investegate.co.uk/picton-prop-inc-ltd--pctn-/prn/half-year-results/20201112070000PBD62/ Financial Highlights ~ EPRA earnings of £10.1 million ~ Profit of £3.7 million ~ Net assets of £506 million, or 93p per share ~ Total return of 0.7% ~ Dividend cover of 148% ~ Loan to value ratio of 22% ~ £50 million available through new undrawn revolving credit facility Operational Highlights ~ Total property return of 1.5%, outperforming the MSCI UK Quarterly Property Index of -1.6% ~ Occupancy increased to 90% ~ Nine lettings completed, securing £1.2 million per annum, 2.8% ahead of March 2020 ERV ~ 16 lease renewals / regears completed, retaining £2.3 million per annum, 14.3% above March 2020 ERV ~ Five rent reviews completed, securing an uplift of £0.3 million per annum, 16.3% above March 2020 ERV ~ Additional income of £1.3 million received from asset management initiatives ~ Retail and Leisure exposure reduced to 12% from 18% of the total property portfolio Rent Collection ~ Received 90% of the March quarter’s rent, expected to rise to 96% under agreed deferred payment plans ~ Received 90% of the June quarter’s rent, expected to rise to 93% under agreed deferred payment plans ~ To date 93% of the September quarter’s rent has been collected or is expected to be received under monthly payment plans Subsequent Events ~ Dividend increased by 12% to 2.8p per share effective November 2020 ~ Completed a further £0.4 million per annum of lettings, 2.4% above September 2020 ERV, including the first letting at Stanford Building, WC2 ~ Good leasing pipeline with approximately £0.7 million per annum of transactions agreed, subject to contract, across industrial, office and retail sectors Picton Chairman, Nicholas Thompson, commented: “Picton has delivered a profit in what has undoubtedly been a challenging period. Cognisant of this performance and the overall strength of the balance sheet, we felt it was appropriate to take the first step in restoring the dividend to pre-Covid levels by announcing a 12% increase, effective November 2020.” Michael Morris, Chief Executive of Picton, commented: “We have delivered robust progress at a portfolio level and rent collection in excess of 90%. As well as improving occupancy, generating additional income to offset Covid-19 impacts and completing some key asset management projects, we have also increased our weightings to the better performing industrial and office sectors.” -------------------------------- Our EPRA earnings for the period are similar to last year. Despite lower than usual rent collection we have been able to offset this with additional one-off income from active management initiatives, whilst reducing both property and administrative costs relative to this period last year. -------------------------------- Dividend cover for the six months was 148%, or 129% excluding additional income. Recognising our rent collection performance and high dividend cover we have decided to increase the dividend by 12% to 0.7 pence per quarter, effective from the November payment which is a first step in restoring the dividend to its previous level.

Thanks @nickrl, didn't realise the Covent Gdn one vacant. There's a few have nudged divi back up (or reinstated) but I take issue with PCTN trumpeting it as a "12% increase" :)

These were carrying a fair void cost at year end but they've off loaded a Peterborough asset which had one void and an imminent loss of TK Maxx in Mar 21 so that will help but the reclassified W.End office in Covenant Gdn still vacant. They also have c22% of the NRI subject to break/expiry Apr20 to Apr22 ordinarily a positive but who knows in this environment so void costs could worsen. Negative comments out the way these are the first to increase a previously reduced dividend so BoDs must be confident they can maintain rental collection around 85-90% to cover it. As Specto says yield a paltry 4.6% at close but can't see much more upside on divi from here until things improve.

As always, spoilt for choice, but PCTN reminds me a lot of UCKM. Large (half a billion quid of property), low LTV (half what some have), but poxy yield. A 12% increase of squat is still squat :) 4.5% yield now I reckon? Claim very low retail exposure but helped by reclassifying one asset from High St Retail to West End Office. Either canny property management, or canny classification. 49% industrial, ought to be on a better yield IMO. I like PCTN - and UKCM - both seem conservative and "cheap" in any normal scenario. But neither stack up that well against everything else on offer atm.

What troubles me about AEWU is they've disposed of there biggest asset - yes at good price but they've lost the income stream so unless they tap into the cash they received can't see them raising the divi. I let that issue blight me at the time for dipping in so gone up too imo now. However, what im seeing in many of these is an up trend for a few weeks following good news then a slow drift back so will keep an eye on it.

Despite it's 15% rise since I posted here just over a week ago, AEWU still looks great value with 8.6% covered yield (9.6% actual), super low LTV of 13.5% and 2.05% cost of debt including hedging.

nickrl Bizarrely, no shortage of good income plays. RECI for sure. At 127p, with the covered and retained 12p dividend the yield = 9.45% INLZ - a ZDP. At 153.5p the GRY (YTM) = 7.5% AIRE - as you know, another propco, but trading at a well covered, reduced dividend yield of 6.3% and a 41% NAV discount. IMO the Divi likely to be higher than the 3.3p conservatively stated.

Can't fault there transparency on rental collection. They set the standard template others should adopt. As Sky says a tad too pricey still but given there relatively stable share price compared to others maybe that the price I have to accept to get some income without risking capital erosion.

Or compair to AEWU 11% yield, 13.5% net LTV, 2% cost of debt and 20% discount to NAV. This quarters div is not fully covered but still 9.5% annualised on a 100% covered basis.

Agreed, a reasonable set of results, but that's about all. The valuation does rather benefit from PCTN's past reputation of a safe pair of hands. The 25% notional NAV discount & low 3.8% yield certainly doesn't work for me; perhaps more of an institutional HOLD. Compare the stats to EPIC's well covered 7.8% yield and 43% discount.
