Infrareit Inc (HIFR): Adage Capital Management Boosts Stake To 8.03%

Is Infrareit Inc. (NYSE:HIFR) a good investment opportunity? Phill Gross and Robert Atchinson seem to think so, as their fund, Adage Capital Management, has made a huge addition to its position. Whereas the fund held 10,100 shares at the end of the first quarter, the position has been increased to a little over 3.5 million, giving it control over 8.03% of the trust’s outstanding shares, according to a recent filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission.

Infrareit Inc. (NYSE:HIFR), a real estate investment trust (REIT), is an owner of electricity delivery infrastructure assets in Texas that it leases to Sharyland Utilities, L.P. With a market cap of $770 million, Infrareit’s stock has seen some wild swings in the beginning of 2016 and then slowed down to a crawl since the end of March.

The stock of the $1.09 billion REIT has declined by around 2.3% year-to-date. On June 3, the company announced that its board of directors had approved an annual dividend of $1.00 per share, which at current prices gives the stocks a yield of around 5.56%.Phill Gross
