    Which REITs Can Protect You from Rising Inflation and Interest?

    Rising interest rates have been the primary reason for the volatility in the real estate sector since the beginning of 2018. Despite their strong first-quarter turnaround and improving fundamentals—with marked increases in their funds from operations and net operating incomes—REITs have remained under selling pressure in 2018. The Vanguard Real Estate ETF (VNQ), which invests in a range of real estate assets including REITs, rebounded 4% in May as most REITs reported better-than-expected earnings.

    In a continued effort to deregulate the economy, President Donald Trump signed the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act on March 24.

    Why the Recent REIT Rebound Could Stretch a Little Further

    The real estate sector (VNQ) has been lagging in performance in 2018. The reason for this decline has been the increase in interest rates and expectations of a higher interest rate in the future, which could dent demand in the real estate sector. The performance of the real estate sector has been a roller-coaster ride as interest rate expectations have continued to change with every incoming piece of data over the last few months.

    3 Popular High Yield ETFs To Sell Now

    When Vanguard, iShares and the like throw out terms like “high dividend” and “high yield,” what they really mean is simply “more than the market.” In this case, the VYM’s 3.1% certainly is greater than the 1.9% you can fetch from the SPDR S&P 500 ETF, but it’s far shy of the 5%-10% yields I typically cover in this space. It simply tracks an index of “common stocks of companies characterized by high dividend yields.” You’ll be unsurprised, then, to find that top holdings include the likes of Microsoft, Johnson & Johnson and AT&T. The iShares U.S. Preferred Stock ETF, at more than $16 billion in assets under management, is the largest preferred-stock ETF by a country mile.
