Reitster Brad Thomas thinks so and articulates his reasons here:

Summary

Great business model and management = the safest dividend in REITdom.

Strong long-term growth runway likely means stable dividend growth for decades to come.

Attractive valuation means generous yield + long-term market-beating return potential.

Bottom Line: Federal Realty Is One Of The World's Best REITs And Today's Attractive Valuation Makes It A Good Buy

Are we saying that FRT is going to soar over the next quarter or the next year?

No, we're not a market timer, speculator or fortune teller, just fundamentals and valuation-focused analyst. We're purveyors of reasonable and prudent long-term recommendations for anyone concerned with maximizing safe dividends over time, and earnings strong total returns that can help you achieve your financial goals.

Federal Realty is a Super SWAN dividend king REIT whose strong long-term growth is likely sufficient to deliver generous, very safe and steadily rising income in all economic and market conditions.

It's currently about 7% undervalued for 2019 and 11% undervalued for 2020. While we can't tell you what the stock price will do over the next year, we can tell you that the best management team in the industry has a proven track record of growing shareholder value (and dividends) across all economic conditions.

With the dividend safely ensconced behind a low payout ratio, and one of the best balance sheets in the sector, FRT at today's modest margin of safety is a good buy, and if the current share price persists, will be a "strong buy" in 2020.
