That high and rising profitability, combined with growing off a small base, means that Innovative Industrial is growing at rates that would put most tech stocks to shame. For example in Q3 2018 revenue rose 150% and here are the REIT’s YTD 2018 results:

  • Revenue growth: 142%
  • AFFO: 297% (rising profitability from growing economies of scale)
  • Share count growth: 94% (funding 100% of growth with equity)
  • AFFO/share growth (REIT bottom line): 111%
  • Dividend Growth: 183%
  • AFFO Payout Ratio: 91% (dividend sustainable and covered by cash flow)

Such growth is fueling amazing total returns for investors.
