5 REITs for Any Stock Market Conditions

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, September 03, 2019 | | 0 comments »

But it isn’t just that REITs continue to do better in the stock market. They also represent a better value right now. Comparing the S&P 500 and Bloomberg REIT Indexes, the average price-to-book value for the S&P is 3.35 times. REITs are a better value at only 2.74 times. And of course, the dividend yield of REITs at an average of 4.2% is measurably better than the barely there yield of the S&P at 1.9%.

I’ll start with a broad-REIT-market ETF with a ultra-low expense ratio in the Vanguard Real Estate ETF (NYSEARCA:VNQ). Next is another alternative to the Vanguard ETF with broad exposure to the general U.S. REIT market in the iShares Core U.S. REIT ETF (NYSEARCA:USRT). One of my favorite individual companies in this space is WP Carey (NYSE:WPC). One of my favorite individual health REITs is Ventas (VTR) One of the best — if not the best — mortgage REITs which I have followed and recommended for so many years is MFA Financial (NYSE:MFA).
