  • Spodek was the last insider buyer with a 20,000 share buy last September, paying $267,460. And he made a further five buys earlier in 2023. The company’s CFO and Treasurer were also slight sellers of shares last month.

    Overall, Postal Realty Trust insiders own 5.6% of shares.

    The office REIT, which mostly rents out spaces to U.S. Post Office locations, is down about 7% over the past year.

    Operationally, PSTL has had a mixed year. Revenues rose 14%, but earnings slid an equal amount. The Post Office raised stamp prices last year amid an operational loss, and is looking to raise stamp prices again in July.

  • Action to take: Investing in companies that have a major customer that dominates total revenues carries a unique risk compared to other investments.

    PSTL looks attractive as a current income play, given its 7% dividend. However, if the company’s earnings don’t improve, that dividend could be at risk of a cut.

    Overall, that makes shares a speculative income play.

    For traders, shares have been trending down in recent week, and look to be heading to re-test their old lows at $12.98. The July $12.50 puts, last trading for $0.15, could see triple-digit returns if shares break below that low in the coming weeks.
