  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, "APTS 3Q17 Earnings Recap: Conventional logic states that monoline REITs should trade at a premium to multiline REITs, yet but for APTS’s example, it seems as if it is blowing the standard conventions out of the water! How can an investor possibly justify discounting a firm that has grown its dividend at a 12.6% CAGR over a 5-year period? How is a discount warranted when an investment in APTS’ April 2011 IPO has yielded an average annual return of 28.7%? It isn’t warranted at all. Continuing to differentiate APTS from peers is its budding student housing portfolio, now at a 3 properties with 2,232 beds (each bed generates revenue vs. each unit in MF) and an additional 2,122 units under contract which should translate to roughly another 7,400 beds at $745 per month. Yes, APTS owns MF investments. Yes, APTS owns grocery anchored retail investments. Yes, APTS class A office. Yes, APTS owns student housing properties. Yes, it has experienced management teams running each business unit which is the reason its breaking all the rules as its shares appreciate at a near exponential clip. We are reiterating our BUY rating on APTS and increasing our $20.00 price target to $26.00 to account for the significant embedded value of the owned real estate and purchase options APTS has yet to exercise and are entitled to."
