Thinking about investing in a property leased to a listed company? One of your major decisions is the balance between risk and reward. How the ratings companies (S&P - Moodys etc.) rate the company helps to set the risk parameter.

These people have created an easy to use chart that shows the company name "Tenant", its stock symbol, both Standard & Poors and Moodys' ratings. They assemble this information quarterly and add some other interpretations such as the probability of default in five years from both Standard & Poors and Moodys.

Let's say you're considering a single tenant property net leased to Radio Shack. You'll quickly find that they carry a CCC+ rating with Standard and Poors and a 5 year probability of default rating of 8.68%. Compare this (all other things equal) with an investment in a Sherwin-Williams store. S&P rates them "A" (Institutional grade) with a 5 year probability of default rating of 0.119%.

This is a quick and easy free tool to help you see why cap rates (and corresponding prices) on individual single tenant investments are so predictable yet differ so considerably tenant by tenant.
