Description for case is given below :
Longview Investments, an investor in alternative asset classes, had recently developed a new investment thesis to take advantage of several emerging macroeconomic themes. The strategy was premised on the belief that inflation and interest rates were likely to accelerate in the future and that digital real estate was likely to offer a superior return due to developing trends in technology and IT management. Specifically, the firm noticed greater utilization of cloud-based applications and mobile devices; the increased need for ubiquitous access to digitized data, as well as the explosion in the amount of electronic data generally; and the shifting of firms away from the use of small server closets and toward larger datacenter environments. The net result was a heightened interest in REITs specializing in digital real estate. The case is meant to demonstrate the sum of the parts valuation methodology as a capstone exercise for an introductory finance class in a first-year MBA setting. It follows an investment professional as he develops a hypothesis related to Digital Realty Trust (DLR), a publicly traded REIT specializing in digital real estate.
