    I am invested in high yield REITs, REIT ETNs, and some BDCs and CEFs. I use VNQ as the benchmark for my entire portfolio, dynamically comparing my total return statistically against that of VNQ. Its’s like VNQ hit an air pocket yesterday (April 16), and down a little more this morning. Profit taking perhaps due to recent run up, but it might be the start of a major shift out of REITs - which would be difficult to understand. I think some sections of the REIT universe are the safest place to be invested right now, with so much uncertainty facing individual investors.

    Why have shares been declining more than the market the last several days? Is there any news? The dividend date is around the end of the month, have them made an announcement regarding the dividend?

    This is quietly THE best segment to invest in right now. VERY happy with recent total returns. My IRA is all high dividend funds and individual equities like this for the foreseeable future.

    Everyone complaining about bonds giving no yield, yet REITs remain very cheap. This seems like a no brainier to me (of course I'll probably be wrong!)
    Bullish

    With all these diversified REITs showing collections 85-95%, investors are starting to realize the resilience of the sector. Recovery time. $bpy $vnq

    History shows that often REITS lag during the initial stage of interest rate hikes however they often keep pace with interest rate increases during intervals of increasing inflation. Of course you have to consider we have the Federal Reserve attempting to induce higher rates while disinflationary forces remain in place. This clouds the possible extent of the rate cycle to some degree and therebyleaaves projections for interest rate sensitive investments with more uncertainty. I firmly believe that REITs in general, such as to be considered with VNQ or the open-end mutual fund version represent a solid buying opportunity now. To buy at or below the current price, ~72.90 as I write this post, will offer competitive market returns moving deeper in year 2018.

    Does Corona put VNQ at risk?

    Is it a good idea to invest in VNQ AND some of the individual reits that it contains such as O, PEAK, LTC, OHI, etc? I know these are good companies with great dividends but don’t know if it would be considered redundant?

    I sold VNQ over a year ago and bought SCHH to harvest tax losses. The two tracked very well, that is until last year when they both tanked hard, but SCHH tanked much harder. VNQ has outperformed SCHH ever since. Can anyone enlighten me as to why that would be? They make identical moves all day long.

    REITS and utilities getting slammed... gold is on the move. Are the markets getting a whiff of inflation? I have to keep my REITS for the dividend income, but I am adding gold stocks to the mix.

    Fed did a good job in his 2-day testimony. Time to load up some shares.
