Stocks ticked lower this morning as investors process Fed policy changes, the impact of rising inflation, and news about the spreading variant. Investors continued to move out of high-growth tech names and into cyclical names.
“As the Federal Reserve turns more hawkish and expectations for higher interest rates rise, investors are lowering exposure to growth stocks,” said Jim Paulsen, chief investment strategist at the Leuthold Group.
Today we’re highlighting a real estate investment that should appeal to readers seeking value and growth. If you’re looking to unlock this powerful combination, look no further.
STAG Industrial, Inc. (STAG) is a real estate investment trust focused on the acquisition and operation of single-tenant, industrial properties throughout the U.S. Currently, the company owns 517 properties across 40 states with 103.4 million square feet of space.
STAG is active across all aspects of the industrial real estate market, including owning light manufacturing properties and flex/office space. Flex/office space is a market estimated at $1 trillion of properties in the U.S. alone. With just a 0.5% share of that market, STAG has plenty of room to grow.
STAG’s portfolio is continually expanding through acquisition. It will often purchase value-add properties and leverage its substantial leasing and redevelopment experience to increase shareholder value. Over the next five years, it plans to spend $800 million to $1.2 billion on property purchases.
Thanks to this acquisition strategy, the company’s payout has been slowly but steadily increasing. Given the REIT’s aim to invest billions in expanding its portfolio over the next five years, that trend should continue. The stock sports a comfortable, 3.4% yield paid out monthly, making it even more attractive to income-seeking investors. STAG has developed an investment strategy that helps investors find a robust balance of income plus growth. That income with upside makes them a great high-yield REIT to consider adding to your portfolio.
