Dividends4Life: Four Dividend Stocks to Buy as Inflation Shields

Dividend Growth Stocks News

Instead of relying on one inflation hedge, investors can consider several ways to shield their portfolios from higher-than-usual price hikes. Investments that traditionally help to fend off the fallout of inflation include producers of consumer goods that people always need include real estate investment trusts (REITs) and business development companies (BDCs). Choosing the right ones at the best times is a key challenge. “It’s important to have a diversified basket of inflation hedges,” said Bob Carlson, chairman of the Board of Trustees of Virginia’s Fairfax County Employees’ Retirement System with more than $4 billion in assets.

Carlson said he likes DWS RREEF Real Assets Fund (AAASX), which has a number of share classes and each features a different ticker. Duke Realty Corp. (NYSE: DRE), of Indianapolis, Indiana, an owner, developer and manager of industrial properties that feature bulk top warehouses and regional distribution centers; Extra Space Storage, Inc. (NYSE: EXR), a self-storage unit REIT headquartered in Cottonwood Heights, Utah; New York’s UDR Inc., (NYSE: UDR), an operator of luxury apartment communities in hundreds of desirable locations, such as Manhattan’s Upper West Side and San Francisco’s Mission Bay District; and Welltower Inc. (NYSE: WELL), a Toledo, Ohio, REIT that invests in health care infrastructure.
