Key points

  • HPI shares continue to rally in 2022 and are now up 3% in that time 
  • The group reported a robust set of results last month that market pundits have reacted well to 
  • In the last 12 months, the HPI share price has climbed more than 30% 

The All Ordinaries Index (ASX: XAO) is tracked lower today and now sits less than 1% in the red at 7,356 points at market close. After clawing back gains over the previous week, the All Ords is still down more than 2% for the month.

But one All Ords share is overtaking the pack in 2022 and is currently well on the way to nudging past its record highs.

Shares in Hotel Property Investments Ltd (ASX: HPI) are surging higher in 2022 and are now sitting almost 3% in the green since trading restarted on January 4.

Why is the HPI share price soaring higher?

The company posted a robust set of interim results last month that saw funds from operations (FFO) printed at $19.5 million for the period ending 31 December 2021.

This meant the group affirmed its FY22 distribution per share (DPS) guidance of 20.5 cents per share, signifying a 6% gain year on year.

Net tangible assets (NTA) also climbed by 16% to $3.82 following an active half for the company after it raised capital to finance transactions for two pubs.

The $36 million raised plus an additional $69 million injected into the portfolio via capital expenditures was surely a sign of this activity.

HPI also offloaded two property assets for approximately $30 million which equated to an ‘exit yield’ of roughly 5%, which was reinvested into other sections of the portfolio.

Not only that, but the S&P/ASX 200 Real Estate Index (ASX: XRE) is one of the best performing sectors this past week, having climbed 3%, after faltering hard in January.

The upside has analysts at JP Morgan noticing the stock, particularly after the group’s most recent earnings results.

The broker is overweight on HPI shares and values the company at $4 per share in a recent note to clients. It reckons the group’s enormous portfolio and income stream are attractive points in the debate.

“HPI owns a ~$1.2bn portfolio of 56 properties located predominantly in QLD. HPI has a~11-year WALE with minimal near-term expiry risk”, the firm said.

“We like HPI for its defensive income stream and long WALE and believe its book cap rate is too high given the security of its income and high fixed growth (lower of 4% pa or 2x CPI)”.

According to Bloomberg, 60% of brokers have HPI as a buy right now, whereas just 1 broker each have it as a hold and sell.

HPI share price snapshot

In the last 12 months this All Ords share has climbed more than 30% and has continued another 3% gain this year to date.

Over the past month, shares have climbed 8% and HPI is now in the green across all major timeframes.
