Vornado Realty Trust: A High Yielding Office Space For You

Fundamentals that support Vornado’s dividend payout:

The Balance sheet consists of cash & marketable securities of $940 million, and $10 billion in consolidated debt.  All the pubic unsecured debt comes due 2015 and after. The company is in compliant with all its debt covenants as of June 30th, 2012.

Vornado has a diversified portfolio of tenants with the U.S. government contributing 6% of annualized revenues. None of the other tenants contribute more than 1.5% to annualized revenues.

Vornado continues on its success of disposition of properties. The company is expected to complete a total of $2 billion in 2012. This is a hefty intake of cash for the company.

New York contributes 55% to the company’s EBITDA. Occupancy in New York office remains at a high of 95.4%, and New York Retail stays at a high of 94.5%. Both still provide potential for growth given the rent increase of 4.5% in NY office space, and 3.1% in NY retail space.

Conclusion: Vornado has one of the best balance sheets in the office space with various forms of capital available to the company.  Also, it is focused on markets that have potential for growth and long-term stability. In this low interest rate environment, and a volatile fundamental environment, it is hard to find extra income to add to our portfolios. Vornado Realty Trust provides an attractive yield in a high quality REIT. It is an attractive yield for income-oriented investors.

Vornado realty is expected to report earning on November 1st, 2012
