Realty Income's business is doing just fine The most important point is that the stock-price drop has little to do with Realty Income's business itself. Sure, it could get a little more expensive for the company to borrow money, but Realty Income isn't a particularly heavily leveraged REIT. Businesswise, Realty Income is doing quite well. The company's portfolio is more than 98% occupied and releasing activity has been rather impressive. And the company is seeing a steady stream of attractive opportunities in the market: For 2017, the company expected to acquire $1.5 billion worth of properties. (We won't find out for sure until Realty Income reports year-end earnings.) In addition, the balance sheet is as strong as ever. Realty Income's fixed-charge coverage ratio is the highest it's ever been, and recent acquisitions have been largely funded with equity, not debt................ https://finance.yahoo.com/news/realty-income-running-steam-taking-115200411.html GO "O" "PEACE"
