Business Strategy and Outlook| Kevin Brown, CFA |
Retail real estate investment trust Kimco Realty owns and operates a geographically diversified portfolio of quality shopping centers. Its retail portfolio includes grocery-anchored centers, superregional centers, power centers, and mixed-use urban centers. The company has transformed dramatically, having sold over 400 properties for more than $6 billion since 2010, which has significantly improved the portfolio's quality. Currently, Kimco derives more than 80% of its annual base rent from major metropolitan markets. Management continues to strategically sell lower-quality assets and reinvest the proceeds in high-yielding development and redevelopment projects.
