    O was on my radar as well but bought BPY insted as their 7% div yield was just too good. Also I like prime office rentals in BPY portfolio, while O is into retail rentals only and their dividend yield is 2x smaller – 3,5%. Ofcourse O has much better balance with Debt/EBITDA at only ~6 while BPY has huge leverage of ×13, but they are on righr path of delevereging. And in general BPY is a bigger RE player then O and in this sector (RE) size matters very much. Also getting 2,5% post-tax return on RE investment is just too low, this is why im passing O right now 🙂
