REITs are a great way for investors and traders to start investing their money in the stock market…
The market-beating returns and dividend payouts they deliver are attractive. But just like stocks, there are a few REITs to avoid that you need to know about.
Since the reports coming out of the REIT sector haven’t been too positive lately, let’s talk about the two REITs to avoid, sell or liquidate right now…
2 REITS to Avoid, Sell or Liquidate Right Now
According to Pew Research Center, a nonpartisan group that informs the public about issues, attitudes and trends shaping the world, four in 10 U.S. drug related arrests in 2018 were mostly for marijuana offenses. And most of those crimes were possession related.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that most criminal reform advocates have blasted how law enforcement and the judicial system processes marijuana related charges.
This trend is likely to continue as Oregon takes ground-breaking steps to decriminalize small possession of drugs charges. (And I’m not just talking about marijunana here.)
But keep in mind, the state of Oregon was one of the first to legalize medical marijuana in 1998 and recreational adult-use in 2014.
The entire country is now taking notice, and I’m expecting several other states to follow suit…
Simply put, it doesn’t appear that potential jail time is causing people to stop abusing drugs. The evidence is actually to the contrary, and means private prison systems might be in for big vacancies over the next few years.
And with the rise in COVID-19 cases resulting in shorter jail sentences, early release and home confinement instead of spending time in jail, it’s a good chance my short list of REITs to avoid will continue trending lower for some time.
In fact, the short list of REITs in today’s video is a real “short list” because these stocks are meant to be sold, shorted or faded.
