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.

Has been losing ground, likely because of concern about higher interest rates. This is in real estate and they are leveraged. Real estate should be a small part of a portfolio, but not sure it should be a big part. If you own, he would consider moving over to RioCan (REI.UN-T), one of the best ones in Canada.

Something you want to be careful of when looking at REITs is that interest rates will eventually move up. This is why you are seeing some weakness in the REIT market in Canada. On top of that when you pile on what is happening with oil prices and what is happening in Western Canada, and how it may flow into eastern Canada, it is probably not a good time to be entering into REITs.

Protecting yourself if you are overweight in REITs? If you are concerned about this sector, he would Buy a Put. Option premiums, particularly in this sector, are quite low so it doesn’t cost you much to hedge your downside. Buying a Put Option; if the REIT goes down in value, the option will go up offsetting your loss. An insurance policy and you are buying it at a relatively cheap rate. Not sure he would do this. The cash flow off a REIT is very solid and doesn’t think they are frothy.

One third of this is in Riocan (REI.UN-T) and H&R Real Estate (HR.UN-T), so it is not equal weight. You have to like these 2 companies because you are buying a 3rd of them through this ETF. A 4.75% yield which is nice. REITs are interest rate sensitive and real estate companies and REITs tend to borrow a lot of money, which could affect their operations. With interest rates started to move up, he is a little light on the REIT market. He would prefer a Telus (T-T) or BCE (BCE-T), high dividend players where you will see dividend growth.

This holds about 25% of RioCan (REI.UN-T). He is always a little bit hesitant with REITs and he doesn’t hold many right now. This is because of the interest rate sensitivity. He is not anxious to be buying any right now. There are other income options he prefers.

REITs are a good play in the summer. Usually you get falling rates during the summer. Investors want to be less correlated and reduce their risks to equities, and often trend towards the bond markets. From March to May is the 1st period of seasonal strength for REITs, and then June through August is the next period. This one is heavily weighted into 2 securities, so if you want more of an equal basket, there is BMO Equal Weight REITs Index (ZRE-T).

Any of the REITs are affected by interest rates because they are predicated upon giving a better return, so this would drop if interest rates went up. This one really depends on what you think about RioCan (REI.UN-T) because this is about 25%-30% of that. He thinks an ETF for REITs is certainly the way to go. As we are getting close to rates going up, he is not that thrilled with REITs.

About 25% RioCan (REI.UN-T). RioCan was very clever in the way they dealt with the Target (TGT-N) leases because they got the covenants from Target US. It depends on whether you want this because of RioCan holdings or if you prefer the equal weighted REITs (ZRE-T) from the Bank of Montréal. In either case, he has Sold them both. He was a little concerned about interest rates going up and he had a large enough gain that he just wanted to do something else.

There are 2 headwinds for REITs. The fear of higher rates and how is the economy doing. The chart on this shows a peak in early 2013 followed by a correction in mid-2013. It is now slowly rallying back. He doesn't think the sector is going anywhere. Doesn't think you will get hurt. The thing with REITs that there was a rush for yields and he thinks that has gone a bit too far. He would be careful on this.

He has abandoned the REIT market in Canada. It has been a terrific part of the market from the standpoint of growth and yield. In a rising interest rate environment, it is going to be a bit problematic. Doesn’t like Canadian REITs as opposed to US REITs because Canadian ones tend to be dominated by shopping centres.
