In the Q2 2021 Investor Letter, the fund highlighted a few stocks and Equity Commonwealth (NYSE:EQC) is one of them. Equity Commonwealth (NYSE:EQC) is a real estate investment trust company. In the last three months, Equity Commonwealth (NYSE:EQC) stock lost 1%. Here is what the fund said:
"In early May, Equity Commonwealth (EQC) announced a transaction to buy Monmouth REIT (MNR) in an all-stock transaction. We later sold our shares in late June. MNR is an industrial warehouse REIT focused on Grade A tenants, with 55% of their portfolio leased to FedEx. The strategy sold to the street is that EQC can leverage MNR’s portfolio to deploy their $3Bn of unencumbered cash into other industrial properties – building a unique, high-grade industrial REIT from scratch. I liked the idea originally, but after talking to folks in the industrial RE segment and modeling the likely financial outcomes, I could not see this opportunity achieving our return hurdle. Fortunately, we bought EQC at a price conservative to the core office assets they already hold and were able to sell the shares with a very small gain over a six-month hold."
