CT Real Estate Investment Trust (CRT-UN-T) CEO Ken Silver said the purchase and leaseback of a Sears Canada distribution centre in Calgary in 2016 allowed it to acquire a piece of “fabulous real estate”. Now, it is putting that investment to good use. Sears Canada, which is shutting down its Canadian operations due to bankruptcy, has notified CT REIT it is disclaiming its lease on the 625,000-square-foot warehouse.
RioCan Real Estate Investment Trust (REI.UN-T) will accelerate its plan to focus its portfolio in Canada’s six major markets, announcing Monday it will sell off approximately 100 properties valued at over $2 billion. Canada’s largest REIT, RioCan said most of the sales will be of properties located in secondary markets. On completion, RioCan expects to generate in excess of 90 per cent of its rental revenue from Canada’s six major markets (currently 75 per cent).
Daily headlines of doom and gloom in Canadian retail might be overblown, according to panelists discussing the sector at the 14th annual RealREIT conference in Toronto on Thursday. “Retail has always had turmoil,” said OneREIT CEO Richard Michaeloff (ONR.UN-T). “It has always changed. You look back over time, retailers have come and gone. You had downtown stores and then suburban stores. You had Walmart come in . . . there has always been lots of change.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
