Edison issues outlook on Picton Property Income (PCTN)

In a successful FY18, Picton Property Income again outperformed the MSCI IPD Quarterly Benchmark property return, as it has now done over one, three, five and 10 years. Moderate gearing enhanced the EPRA NAV total return to 14.9%. The industrial and office property markets, towards which Picton's portfolio has a strong bias, remain robust with widespread rental growth. In addition, Picton's portfolio continues to offer significant reversionary potential despite an already high level of occupancy. Plans to convert to UK REIT status later in the year should enhance future profitability, with no material impact on investment and portfolio strategy.

 

While Picton has a strong income focus, it also chooses to reinvest into the portfolio in ways designed to support occupancy and income growth, with the specific goal of enhancing long-term total return. The growing and well covered DPS represents a relatively attractive dividend yield of c 4%, while there are significant opportunities to grow income further from the current portfolio. Despite a strong historic record of relative outperformance, Picton trades at around its EPRA NAV with a P/NAV that is broadly in line with peers.
