If you’re a lazy investor and dont wanna pick your own stocks but still want exposure to the general REITs market, then ETF is the answer. I believe that there are a few reits ETF out there e.g. Lion-phillip.
One of the more popular one these days would be SYFE’s Reits + portfolio. I believe Kevin (Turtleinvestor) has covered why he chose to use SYFE’s platform for his REIT’s investment. Check it out if you’re interested.
So, I am not going to go into the fundamental perspective of which REIT etf to pick. But in terms of expense ratio wise, CFA (0.5%) is the lowest if I’ve not mistaken.
Despite many of these charts being in a uptrend, there is a real possibility that the following chart (below) can happen because the 12/21 EMA has crossed in almost all the chart.
Having said that, REITS are a completely different asset compared to growth stocks (SP500 falls here too despite being an ETF). So, the trajectory of market structure may not follow the a typical growth stock pattern. So, it may still continue to go up.
There’s a reason why it hasn’t dipped like a typical growth stock chart e.g. Meta/BTC/Netflix and etc. During times like this, when people stay risk off from growth stocks, REITS can be a good place to transfer your wealth to. I mean, slower market movement coupled with good dividends sounds like a good place to hide.
