REIT stands for Real Estate Investment Trust. It is good option how to incorporate real estate exposition to your portfolio without taking on leverage in form of mortgage. REITs in general offer much higher dividends than regular stocks.
Below are some REIT stocks that I'm personally thinking about buying in 2020. To evaluate REIT, do not use PE Price/Earnings ratio, use FFO Funds From Operations instead.
Note that mortgage reits are more like financial services sector than real estate. They provide real estate loans. Such REITs will be likely heavily impacted during longer term recession. They provide often more than 9% dividend yield, but are very risky. Limit their weight in the portfolio.
The 'buy' mark means that I will be likely buying the stock in the future, it is not recommendation to anyone else.
This is not investment advice.
