Had a good run in 2019, but now is breaking trend. He expects higher interest rates in 2021, which will pressure REITs. XRE will head lower in early-2020. He predicts a general market pullback in January.

A diversified REIT index. It charges the REIT index and charges a low MER. Real estate has performed very well this year as interest rates have dropped. The AFFO for REITs is high, true, but urbanization and concentration is happening. The only sector in REITs that's lagging is retail. Otherwise, you should be in REITs.

Outlook of REITs in Canada for 6-12 months. REIT markets in Canada boil down to Vancouver, Toronto and the rest of Canada. As an asset class, REITs are a good diversifier as an asset class and are weakly (but not negatively) correlated to the Canadian market. REITs pay a decent risk-adjusted return. He likes XRE.

The run up from $24 was impressive for D.UN-T. He does not own individual real estate -- he holds XRE-T instead. He would like to see it consolidate at these levels for a while before buying.

You have to be careful when you're buying a market weighted ETF. You get exposure to 4 or 5 of the big ones, and not the rest. So she prefers to do individual stock picking.

Canadian REITs. REITs in general are good in the portfolio but he would not go 'gaga' on them. Canada has had inappropriately low monetary policy. In general Canadian real estate is very expensive. It is an okay building block because of the income potential. XRE-T groups the Canadian REITs. But there are better opportunities around the world.

We’ve all fallen in love with income investing because interest rates are so low, so everybody is looking afield for income. He would caution people to not just stick to Canada, but also look further afield. This ETF has done incredibly well. As interest rates have declined, there are some issues in terms of Cap Rates etc. If an income investor and looking for higher income, he would look to something else such as the emerging-market bond complex such as iShares Emerging Markets Local Currency Bond (LEMB-N). It has a little higher yield.

REITs. We are basically coming up to resistance. He does not think we will break through there. He is selling REITs and is almost out. The dividend is not as attractive as in some other sectors. He would buy REITs if they got back to their lows. If there is a cyclical recession in the next few years, then REITs will underperform in that kind of environment.

Hasn’t owned this for a while, because it is dominated by 2 companies, RioCan (REI.UN-T) and H&R Real Estate (HR.UN-T). He tends to be careful on any kind of ETF that has 20% or more of one company, you might as well just buy the stock. The emphasis of RioCan is really on Canadian shopping centres, and he doesn’t expect much to happen on the shopping centre side. Prefers the iShares Dow Jones Real Estate (IYR-N) which has a really nice array of properties, and it is spread out all over the US.

REITs are one of those things that are hard assets (tangibles) that are really good portfolio diversifiers. He is sort of indifferent regarding REITs. He can see a case being made both ways.

This tracks the REIT Index. A fairly well diversified index which includes the larger capitalization REITs in Canada. It is heavily weighted towards the 10 largest Canadian REITs. If you just want a broad basket of REITs, this is not a bad alternative. The yield is very sustainable. 5.6% dividend yield.

ETF’s do have a great use. He especially likes them when you are not sure if you want to be in a sector or not. It allows you to get in and get out. This is a great way to play the REITs. However, if you are investing over the long-term, he would go more with an active strategy.

There is a difference between commercial and private homes. He does not think interest rates will go up in a big way for years. It will not pose a risk to REITs. There will be a slowdown in housing in Canada because of the new rules. $18 is resistance. If it fell another 5-7% to the bottom of the range of the last couple of years, then it would be a buy.

The REITs market is very subject to interest rates. If you are buying into REITs, you have to be aware that there has been a big explosion in real estate, however you have managers that know what they are doing. If you want to be in the sector, it has a good rate of return. Just be a little cautious and don’t go nuts.
