I Pity The Fool That Chases Fool's Gold, Invest In REIT Preferreds

  • I showcase new REIT preferred stocks and portfolio trade ideas on a monthly basis.
  • I have decided to revisit the thesis for REIT preferreds, how they fit in an investor’s portfolio and the analytical methods used to determine value.
  • The amount of REIT preferred stock that is in an investor’s portfolio should be based on their risk profile, income needs and asset allocation targets.

Yesterday fellow Seeking Alpha writer, Rubicon, wrote an excellent article and he specifically put the hammer down on the RMR family of REITs known as Select Income REIT (NYSE:SIR), Government Properties Income Trust (NYSE:GOV), Senior Housing Properties Trust (NYSE:SNH), and Hospitality Properties Trust (NYSE:HPT).
