Chris McIntyre of McIntyre Partnerships presented his in-depth investment thesis on Spirit MTA REIT (NYSE: SMTA) at Wide-Moat Investing Summit 2018.

Thesis summary:

Spirit MTA REIT is a classic “bad bank” recently spun from Spirit Realty. While the market views SMTA as an overlevered, “too difficult” stock, properly analyzed, Chris views SMTA as a simple story: a portfolio of high-quality (aka “wide-moat”) real estate assets, with minimal recourse leverage, that is likely to be liquidated and the cash returned to shareholders in the next three years at nearly $30 per share, a 200% return. Chris believes the recent spin dynamics and a lack of investor familiarity with the ABS structure of SMTA’s largest asset provide a favorable entry point. Compensation incentives strongly align the board and management with shareholders.
