I actually live in an EQR managed complex, and its very nice…no complaints. In fact, upon moving in the leasing agent informed me they were at 98% occupancy rate. Very good for such a larger complex.
However…the stock EQR is far from attractive at this point. PE>100? Dividend yielding below 3? I don’t see enough growth opportunity here to justify an “Outperform” rating. While focusing on strong real estate markets with stable job growth sounds like the right thing, is there enough upside to choose this over the broad market? I just don’t see it.

My EQR pick has been underwater relative to the market’s performance since the first week I made the pick. I am currently straddling break-even, but I’m losing patience with EQR. I’ve been treading water on this pick below the surface for a while now.

My confidence is wavering on this one. My long-term projection of their portfolio value is not reflected in the current EQR market valuation. This is a HOLD for now. I expect their P/E multiple to stabilize in a competitive range with EQR’s peers over the next two years as the company’s bottom line profit stabilizes, and the company builds a new track record of strong property income growth. This takes patience. As the track record improves, quarter after quarter, as income grows, their PE will likely expand gradually, even as dividends grow. Fixed income investors, the babyboom generation will have an increased preference for shares yielding reliable dividends and growth.

Properties in EQR’s largest markets will experience strong rent growth over the next few years. I continue to believe that their dominance in all of the right markets, those primed for strong population, employment and per capita income growth (Education Hubs, Transportation Hubs, and Financial, wait for it...hubs, and of course technology "corridors!") will drive strong returns as the economy recharges and surges forward over the next year or two. Interest rates will ultimately guide my decision on this pick, as rate volatility has increased drastically in recent weeks. Significant interest-rate deviations are to be expected in the short term, which may have a chilling on the demand for prime real estate assets for the time being. There may be opportunities to capture large deals under contract right now that no longer “pencil out” with the recent surge in interest rates. To be re-evaluated in the event of any significant bond market shock...otherwise, to be reevaluated at year end.

With the housing market the way it is I see potential in the rental market into the future until the housing market stabilizes and people regain their faith in purchasing a home.

Until recently it was easier to qualify for a home loan than getting approved for a good apartment. I don't see much pricing power outside of very desirable areas, so the profit margins may not be that good even if some demand is present.

There is less momentum, less volume, and less buying going on. We are in the last part of this rally.

The 1929-1930 equity rally (coming out of The Great Depression) lasted 147 days and the market was up 46%. It has been the same amount of time since the March, 2009 low and we are up about the same percentage. It’s déjà vu (paramnesia), so prepare for a drop of about the same percentage (85%).

Chosen to be a part of the High Yield Portfolio strategy. Originally created by Fool UK's Stephen Bland (TMFPyad) in November 2000, the High-Yield Portfolio (HYP) strategy invests in a diversified group of 15 blue chip dividend-paying stocks with strong dividend cover, relatively low debt, and a history of increasing dividend payouts. The holding period is theoretically forever -- unless a stock is bought out or cuts its dividend.

Sound crazy? Well, the point of the portfolio is not necessarily for capital gains (although that's certainly a bonus), but to produce increasing amounts of annual dividend income. Daily price fluctuations matter not -- it's the income that matters -- so it removes emotional trading from the picture entirely. Doubters should note that the original UK HYP from November 2000 returned 68% through December 2007 (while the FTSE 100 lost 8%). What's more, the portfolio income payout increased 29% over that seven year period, from 3,451 pounds to 4,462 pounds per year.

Strong balance sheet with additional $550 million loan obtained recently from Wells Fargo at 6%. Reduced financing concerns for the long-term, unlike peers. Low 45% leverage (ratio of debt to total assets). Housing issues have more benign impact on this owner of apartments, where tenants are likely to stay put, if anything.
