In this episode of The Intelligent Investing Podcast, I sit down with Jeremy Raper to chat about a potential opportunity in Japanese Mall REIT’s which have been hit pretty hard during this coronavirus pandemic.




If you are willing to look through whatever happens in 2020 and assume we go back to a normalized environment in 2021, then you should be looking at some of the most beaten-down sectors.

You have to ask yourself a few questions when valuing names in the most beaten-down sectors of the economy:


  1. Is the equity going to survive?
  2. What losses are they taking along the way?
  3. What does that post-corona-world look like?


Japanese REITs


Japanese Mall REITs fall within the broader subsector of Japanese REITs. REITs are real estate investment trusts. Furthermore, REITs must pay 90% of their income as dividends.


Japanese Hotels


Why Japan hotels in particular? Japan has been under-hoteled for a long time. There has been a shortage of hotels and that had been rectified somewhat on the runup to the Olympics.

However, the hotel fleet is still pretty tight.
