DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., Dec. 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CTO Realty Growth, Inc. (NYSE: CTO) (the “Company” or “CTO”) today announced it has acquired Phase I of The Exchange at Gwinnett, a grocery-anchored retail property in the Buford submarket of Atlanta, Georgia (the “Property”) for $34.0 million. The purchase price represents a going-in cap rate within the range of the Company’s guidance for initial cash yields. The Company also announced the sale of a vacant six-acre development land parcel in downtown Daytona Beach, Florida for $6.3 million.
“Phase I of The Exchange at Gwinnett is an excellent opportunity for us to acquire a high-quality, newly built grocery-anchored property in one of the region’s fastest growing retail corridors and now makes Atlanta the largest market in our portfolio based on annualized base rent,” said John P. Albright, President and Chief Executive Officer of CTO Realty Growth. “This the first Sprouts in our portfolio and the Property is part of the first walkable, mixed-use development near the super-regional Mall of Georgia owned by Simon Property Group. When combined with our previously announced acquisitions, we’ve now acquired $245 million of assets in 2021, positioning us for very attractive FFO and AFFO growth in 2022.”
The Property is part of the larger 106-acre master-planned development project called The Exchange at Gwinnett being developed by Fuqua Development and equity partner Batson Cook Development Company, which is located at the intersection of I-85 and SR 20 in close proximity to the Mall of Georgia and just twenty miles northeast of the Company’s Ashford Lane property. The Exchange at Gwinnett is planned to include more than 1,000 apartment, townhome and senior living units and approximately 465,000 square feet of retail, hotel and office, including newly opened entertainment anchors Top Golf and Andretti Racing, and a new 52,000-square-foot Rooms to Go.
The Property is approximately 69,000 square feet, 98% occupied, anchored by Sprouts Farmers Market and includes a diversified mix of national and local retailers and restaurants, including Starbucks, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Thrive Affordable Pet Care and Five Guys. As part of the Property acquisition, the Company has a negotiated right of first offer on the retail portion of Phase II of The Exchange at Gwinnett, which is anticipated to be 37,000 square feet of retail at completion.
The Company purchased the Property using available cash and availability under the Company’s unsecured revolving credit facility.

One day after the American depositary shares of Chinese EV maker Nio (NYSE: NIO) hit their lowest level in over a year, the shares are jumping today. The thing is, these stocks have very little in common, other than the glaring fact that they all are in the electric vehicle sector.
Recovering from a three-day sell-off, shares of Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE: BABA) stock bounced back on Thursday and are up 7.2% as of 11:11 a.m. ET. Alibaba's bounce back appears tied to a Bloomberg report yesterday that the company is "weighing options" to dispose of its 30% stake in Weibo (NASDAQ: WB), the "Chinese Twitter," and may sell its Weibo shares to "a state-owned firm." There are at least a couple of reasons why such a move could be good for Alibaba.
Privately held Chinese electric vehicle (EV) maker Cenntro had apparently good news for investors on Dec. 27 when it reported the manufacture of more than 600 commercial EVs and their delivery to European clients. Despite this upbeat news, its ally, intimate apparel company Naked Brand Group (NASDAQ: NAKD), saw its shares drop 6.74% by the close of trading on the same day. Naked's stock price slipped below the bare minimum of $1 per share needed to avoid Nasdaq delisting early in 2021, leading it to look around for a merger partner to bring its share price above the critical threshold.

If you haven't been paying close attention to Vector Group (NYSE: VGR) stock lately, you might have woken up to a shock today. At a share price of $11.27 as of 10:45 a.m. EDT Thursday, Vector's stock seems to have lost a third of its value overnight, after closing at $17.16 Wednesday evening. Instead, what happened is that after close of trading yesterday, Vector completed the spinoff of Douglas Elliman Realty (NYSE: DOUG), its New York-based commercial real estate brokerage, effectively dividing itself into two stand-alone companies.
Let’s talk about losses. Specifically, let’s talk about individual stock losses during a time of generally rising markets. While these situations can define stocks that are fundamentally unsound, they can also highlight stocks that are primed for rapid gains. To start with, we’re still in a long-term bullish trend. It got started back in March of 2020, when the economy hit bottom during the initial stage of the pandemic crisis. Since then, that first bounce back up has turned into a strong and s
