Let’s take a look at comments made by Rhizome Partners about Griffin Industrial Realty Inc. (NASDAQ:GRIF) stock in the Q2 2019 investor letter.

“Griffin Industrial Realty – The Company owns a portfolio of warehouses and a land portfolio that is being sold off and exchanged into income producing assets in an orderly and tax efficient manner. We believe Griffin will transition into a dividend‐paying REIT over time. Please see our Q3 2017 letter for our original thesis.

Q2 2019 Updates – We attended the shareholder meeting in May and chatted briefly with the management team. This year’s session consisted of the same inquiries from shareholders regarding share buybacks, general and administrative costs, and updates on developments and leasing. It is very clear to us that Griffin’s management team is frustrated with the large persistent gap between the stock and the intrinsic value. We consider this dynamic to be a net positive. Sometimes we find ourselves invested in family controlled companies and the insiders have a “the stock will do what it will do” outlook. We believe that overly focusing on short‐term stock price movement is a waste of effort and attention. It is important for companies to allocate resources toward building the right shareholder base and correctly communicating the long‐term objective of a company. Through conversation and analyzing body language, we believe that Griffin’s management team does intend to narrow the wide price‐to‐value gap over time.”
