You both make sense, I am not so worried about the stock price as much as the dividend. I bought this stock for income when I retire soon. The cost of borrowing money will certainly hurt the dividend, but im not sure the dividend wont be increasing soon. If it does higher rates may not change things much. Any thoughts?
I have owned RQI for 3 years now. Can anyone tell me what will happen to the dividend or share price, if we start seeing interest rate hikes in the fall? I heard someone say it will really hurt the reit community. I was thinking if we started seeing inflation, the real estate market would benefit.
When we start to see inflation raise its ugly head, will that not be very good for reits and people who invest in them as they raise their rents and increase their dividend. This is what I am banking on, I would love to here other investors thoughts.
Can anybody here tell me if I heard correctly. I thought I heard on a news show that the health care bill had in it a clause that said they were going to put a tax on commercial real estate investments. If I did hear this correctly, will this hurt reits. I hope im wrong,I just caught the last of the report.
I don't know why this stock is tanking like it is, but I was wondering if some of the major holders are selling for cash because they are in trouble? Barclay's Morgan Stanley ect.
Thanks for the help, Im 58 and am looking for something I can hold for a long time. I was a little confused with the way RQI performed on days when there stocks they hold were going up. I have been very interested in RQI. I thought it would be a great way to get some exposer to real estate without betting on one stock.
Im new to the RQI board,I bought a little last week because it looked like reits had bottomed. I don't understand reits very well,but thought they would be safer in a downturn. I would like to buy a lot more if it goes down a little more. Could someone who knows reits better than myself ,tell me if rqi responds only to the share price of the stocks in its portfolio, or would it also respond to the value of the properties in these companies that RQI owns? In other words, if a office building in New York is worth less next year than this year, would that reflect in RQIs share price or not. Thanks in advance!
I think it ran up because people were trying to buy into the last dividend. I dont think it will pay off if that is what they are trying to do.
