September 14, 2023 – Rexford Industrial Realty, a real estate investment trust (REIT) listed on NYSE as REXR, has recently seen an increase in ownership by institutional investors and hedge funds. This development has perplexed industry experts due to the current market conditions.
CI Investments Inc., for instance, raised its stake in Rexford Industrial Realty by a whopping 117.4% during the fourth quarter. The asset management company now holds 500 shares of the REIT’s stock worth $27,000 after purchasing an additional 270 shares.

Another notable player is Assetmark Inc., which raised its stake in Rexford Industrial Realty by 18.9% during the fourth quarter. The company’s increased investment now amounts to 1,749 shares valued at $96,000.
These institutional investors and hedge funds together hold a staggering 99.52% of the stock owned by Rexford Industrial Realty – a figure that indicates heightened interest and confidence in this specific real estate investment trust within the financial industry.
Despite this growing attention from institutional investors and hedge funds, REXR’s performance on NYSE has not mirrored this development exactly. On Thursday morning, REXR opened at $52.05 per share—a price that reflects its recent fluctuations rather than displaying aggressive momentum.
Furthermore, with a market capitalization of $10.75 billion, Rexford Industrial Realty finds itself with a trailing price-to-earnings ratio of 52.58 and a price-to-earnings-growth ratio of 2.15—a mix that leaves some market observers puzzled about the firm’s true value.
Additionally, the company has a debt-to-equity ratio of 0.30, indicating potential financial stability concerns among industry skeptics. Nevertheless, Rexford Industrial Realty maintains a current ratio and quick ratio both at 1.37 – figures that suggest considerable liquidity to meet its financial obligations.
Rexford Industrial Realty saw its shares hit a 1-year low at $48.74, while its peak reached $66.71 during the same period. Currently trading around the fifty-day moving average price of $53.36 and below the 200-day moving average price of $54.79, REXR continues to face challenges in finding a stable position in the market.
On another note, Rexford Industrial Realty recently announced a quarterly dividend which will be paid on October 16th to stockholders registered as of September 29th. The dividend is set at $0.38 per share, resulting in an annualized dividend payout ratio currently standing at an astonishingly high rate of 153.54%.
