Cramer Gets Interactive with EPR CEO
Entertainment Properties is a neat REIT, says Jim Cramer, with a 6.55 percent yield, but there are concerns over company charge-offs. Discussing future growth prospects, with David Brain, Entertainment Properties Trust CEO.

Entertainment Properties Trust is a “neat” company with a 6.5 percent yield, Cramer said Monday. But is this high-yielder a buy?

The real estate investment trust owns 160 properties across 33 states. Most of those properties are movie theatres and retail centers.

“They really understand the idea that you have to give consumers a great experience so they keep coming back again and again,” Cramer said.

But there are also concerns over charge-offs related to EPR’s vineyard portfolio, a slowdown in investment activity and worries about the movie theater business. Those concerns have caused the stock to plummet 14 percent in the last three months.

To find out if there is real cause for concern, or if this is a good time to buy EPR, Cramer sat down with CEO David Brain.
