What is the best REIT to own?
Please feel free to add you pick in this blog and give some explanation.
Real estate in the long run is much safer than equities. Real estate does not evaporate and is considered a "real asset". There is no risk of competition and much less bankruptcy concerns. The product will always be in demand or at least will be less resistant to shocks.
Even if the REIT isn't going to generate a lot of income, we are still holding an asset like gold and silver, but at least will provide some kind of income . However it is very important to take into consideration debt levels ie leverage.
The most attractive sectors right now are REITS and shippers. The risk/reward seems to be favoring these two sectors.
My pick is BDN due to very low debt levels.
