$15.70 is the resistance level and then the next one is at $15.74. We have a down trend break. He would not jump in here, but would wait for a new high.

They are separating REITS out of financials in Canada in September. He does not see any net buyer because of this. He has cut his exposure to REITs in half in the last week. He prefers ZRE-T because of broader exposure.

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.

A good way to go. A great way to stay diversified within the REIT sector. It is equal weight.

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.

(A Top Pick July 4/13. Up 8.6%.) Interest rate sensitive ETF’s really got hit last May. Most of his clients don’t have this any more as they have been pulling out of real estate. Feels real estate, of all manners, is starting to get frothy now.
