He is talking about US REITS generally and using the Vanguard REIT ETF to show the pattern across the industry. The EFT was trading in a consolidation range ($80-85’s) all of last year, then there was a sharp drop. The ETF has been retracing but the price (now $75.88) is not close to where it fell from. He thinks he is seeing smart money coming in to take advantage of panicked selling. The average yield is high (6% to 10%). For this ETF, he would set a stop at $72. These stocks are not bond alternatives, but bond mutual funds have given zero return over the past three years (interest minus drop in the share value minus fees = zero). REITS have more risk than bonds but they are lower risk at this time because they have dropped significantly.

People buy this stock for safety. Normally this stock has very low volatility but it has dropped sharply. There is a price/volume divergence: volume is shooting up while the price is dropping. He thinks he is seeing panic sellers and value buyers. There is nice support at $39. With a 5.5% yield, there will be good income, but he doesn’t expect a quick recovery. This is significantly risky at this time.

He has been looking at this stock for 26 years. It is one of the “gold bug” stocks. Gold has caused a lot of heartache for him. There is support for Yamana at $3.39. Volume is very spotty here. He thinks that the best hope with this stock is only a 20-cent or 30-cent increase. He thinks there are larger, less risky gold stocks with better potential.

He would not take a position in this stock because it’s price is lower than $2.50. Looking at the chart, you can see a transformation in the company from mid-2015 to mid-2016, that the company has come through well. More recently, there has been some movement, the stock price average is moving higher. The stock looks like it has the potential to move to $1.70 or 1.80 over the next 6 months. He would buy no more than 1% of his portfolio. Volume looks fairly consistent. If the stock drops, manage your sell price for a 20-cent loss at $1.28.

Technically, the stock is going nowhere. It has outperformed the market this year, it is now close to its all-time high and is in a consolidation phase. It is going sideways.

It had a weird chart pattern, with a big jump up followed by a big jump down. That’s not a good sign. He sees support at $128 but the stock is contributing to drop with a lot of volume to the downside and declining volume on the upside. This is negative. There might be support at the $110 level, which is a significant drop from here.

This is a diversified health-care REIT, trading at multi-year lows, looks like it’s bouncing off them. Good yield. Value and income look right here. He is planning a buying program for this. He would use a stop at $21.50 because of the support there. (Analysts’ price target is 26.29$)
