There will be rent growth and occupancy should remain high for this apartment REIT, but the price has just gotten too high. It trades at a 4.15% FFO yield and has a current dividend yield of 2.22%. Despite being well capitalized, top apartments haven't seen big discounts in value. Investment opportunities at good yields will be limited. The stock will underperform the market.
