3 REITs to Buy in Times of Uncertainty

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, July 11, 2018 | | 0 comments »

5G wireless has become another secular growth trend. The advent of 5G forces all of the major wireless carriers to invest billions in infrastructure upgrades. Companies such as T-Mobile US Inc (NASDAQ:TMUS), AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T), and Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ) stand to lose market share if they do not upgrade. The number of cells needed for 5G also represents an exponential increase from the needs of a 4G system. Hence, the demand for telecom real estate will see a massive increase regardless of how the overall economy performs. Prospective buyers should also remember that REITs face a requirement that they pay 90% of net income to their stockholders in the form of dividends. Investors should look at the following REITs to buy in each of these industries...

Among REITs to buy in the storage unit industry, Public Storage (NYSE:PSA) stands out. PSA owns the largest number of buildings by far, owning about 60% more buildings than its nearest peer, Extra Space Storage, Inc. (NYSE:EXR). Chicago-based Ventas, Inc. (NYSE:VTR) owns a portfolio of over 1,200 healthcare-related properties spread across the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. American Tower Corp (NYSE:AMT) has become a dominant player in the telecom space. It owns about 150,000 cell towers, more than its nearest peers.
