Weyerhaeuser CEO on REIT Transformation
Despite reporting a strong second quarter, shares of Weyerhaeuser closed down on Friday thanks to a weak outlook for the third quarter, Cramer said. But you don't own a stock like this one for the next quarter. You own it for its transformation into a real estate investment trust.
“This is a terrific long-term story,” Cramer said, “even if the short-term outlook is cautious.”
A company’s conversion into a REIT can seem arcane and impenetrable, maybe making investors wary of buying such a stock. That’s why Cramer invited Weyerhaeuser CEO Daniel Fulton onto Mad Money for a complete breakdown of the process.
