Another strong INVERSE relationship.
Here is another example of CAUSE & EFFECT you can use. A classic predictive tool.....
The INVERSE relationship when interest rates fall and real estate assets rise.
Easterly Government Properties, Inc. is a real estate investment trust (REIT). The Company is focused primarily on the acquisition, development and management of Class A commercial properties that are leased to the United States Government agencies, such as the Drug Enforcement Administration, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Internal Revenue Service, Patent and Trademark Office, Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Forest Service, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and Department of Transportation. The Company owns approximately 40 properties in the United States, encompassing over 2.6 million square-feet in the aggregate.
They also currently pay a 4.49% dividend.
I ask you to compare both channels on the above chart. There is a direct correlation between the falling yield and the rising stock price.
This is the INVERSE RELATIONSHIP you should be looking for.
DEA-had a secondary public offering (of 6.1M shares at $18) on 06-02-2016. The last close was $20.49. I have to conclude the offering was well received.
As always, good luck to you. Don.
