One of the Best High-Yielding Investments You Can Own

REITs are one of the best opportunities on the market today.

Especially with interest rates on the way down.

Since 1960, REITs have beaten stocks by up to a full percentage point, according to a Netherlands’ report titled  Historical Returns of the Market Portfolio.

After examining global stocks between 1960 and 2017, researchers found that the best investments weren’t stocks or gold – but real estate.  In fact, over that time frame, real estate investment companies and trusts beat inflation by an average of 6.4% a year, as compared to 5.45% for global stocks.

In addition, over a 20-year time frame, that gap would be enough to raise your total returns by up to a third, as pointed out by MarketWatch.

The best part – real estate returns have been incredibly consistent.

Since 1960, real estate suffered maybe one bad decade – the 1990s when real estate returns were barely above zero.  But in every decade other than that, real estate has produced returns ranging from 6% to 7%, according to the Netherlands’ study.

Those facts don’t lie.

Along with historical strength, most investment trusts have sky-high yields we just can’t ignore.  After all, if we do, we miss out on building an explosively rewarding nest egg.

The best part – the Federal Reserve has been fueling the fire with interest rate cuts, and another likely cut just days from now.  With a drop in global economic growth expectations, along with trade tensions, investors are naturally gravitating toward the safer havens, like REITs.

The best part of REITs – they’ll pay you fat dividends.

Plus, they have a strong history of outperforming in times of rising and falling interest rates.

We’ll share some ideas with you shortly.  Stay tuned for more.
