As the path of future interest rates has reversed course, some believe that now is the opportunity to buy the undervalued, often-forgotten investment vehicles.

lost money on REITs..

had bought some REITs earlier with the aim of getting regular passive dividend income but when the interest rates went up, REITs prices started falling to match their higher investment risks over the T-bills and fixed deposits interest rates which had risen and my principal losses now exceeded the dividends I received and so I'm in the red sitting on paper loss..
nevertheless we see that they have started to recover slightly in the last couple of months in the possibility o...
The broad mkt is too complacent re plateauing of interest rates. Current volatility is evidence that uncertainty due to geo political tension, de globalisation and de dollarisation persists. REITs like other asset classes will not be spared from mkt turmoil. Best to stay in cash and govt securities.

While funding costs are higher and growth will slow, REITs enter the recession in a relatively strong position, driven by tight supply and subsequent healthy cash flows.
I will add REITs to diversify my portfolio, t...

REITs: Hold for long term and earn dividend 💵

I bought REIT and have been earning dividend. REIT are for stable income which is better than high interest saving deposit. Some may not agree because the value lost in the share price (book loss) may exceed the dividend you received.
I think it depends on your investment goal. If you are looking for less volatility, stable income and have the holding ability, REIT is for you. Another saying that investing in REIT is better than holding a property (ph...

For long term gain

timing the market is not always a good strategy, as more often may miss the boat..i would prefer to dollar cost average - currently it would be a time to consider DCA since it has gone down from earlier highs.
the current interest rate environmen may not favour REITS but so long as the fundamentals is good/does not change i will still hold on the the REITS i have for long term. there will definitely be some volatility in terms of the REITS prices, when it does down, i will exp...
