 QUARTER ENDED
 MARCH 31,
(Amounts in thousands, except share and per share amounts)  2020   2019 
      
Net income$4,572 $17,865 
Depreciation and amortization of real property 7,777  7,704 
Change in fair value of marketable securities 11,395  (38)
FFO (non-GAAP)$23,744 $25,531 
      
FFO per diluted share (non-GAAP)$4.64 $4.99 
      
Weighted average shares used in computing FFO per diluted share 5,118,698  5,117,347 

FFO is computed in accordance with the definition adopted by the Board of Governors of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”). NAREIT defines FFO as GAAP net income or loss adjusted to exclude net gains from sales of depreciable real estate assets, real estate impairment losses, depreciation and amortization expense from real estate assets and other specified items, including the pro rata share of such adjustments of unconsolidated subsidiaries. FFO and FFO per diluted share are used by management, investors and analysts to facilitate meaningful comparisons of operating performance between periods and among our peers because it excludes the effect of real estate depreciation and amortization and net gains on sales, which are based on historical costs and implicitly assume that the value of real estate diminishes predictably over time, rather than fluctuating based on existing market conditions. FFO does not represent cash generated from operating activities and is not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund cash requirements and should not be considered as an alternative to net income as a performance measure or cash flow as a liquidity measure. FFO may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies. A reconciliation of net income to FFO is provided above.
