- Realty Income’s robust business model suggests that its dividend payouts aren’t expected to be at risk. As such, I expect income investors to return and defend the recent hammering.
- I make the case for why O’s battering could be peaking as the market has priced in further weakness, worsened by the challenge facing the commercial real estate market.
- Maintain Buy, but investors shouldn’t expect a rapid recovery as seen in October 2022. Patience is much appreciated.
