Real Estate Investment Trusts: Safe Bet in a Recession?

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago  Print This Post Housing is needed no matter the economic conditions, making residential real estate a relatively safe real estate investment trusts (REIT) a safe investment, NuWire Investor notes. Real estate overall is largely safe in a recession compared to other investments.“Real estate is protected from volatility by factors like location, scarcity, and plot size,” NuWire states. “But unlike tangible property, which is expensive to buy and tough to sell, REITs can be traded on many investing apps. Because they come in single shares, even low-budget investors can diversify their REIT holdings.”The risk, NuWire notes, is that residential REITs are “notoriously local,” leading many investors to add investments outside the U.S., keeping their portfolio safe in the event of a large-scale national downturn.REITs can be reliable and well-managed stocks, according to Forbes Real Estate Investor editor Brad Thomas, and interest in these stocks are growing rapidly. In a piece on Forbes, Thomas discussed the benefits of the REIT, noting the larger dividends, despite how slow REIT investments tend to be.“That last quality gives investors their choice between keeping that additional income or reinvesting the money back into their positions,” Thomas said.“Those are the good sides to real estate investment trusts. The downside, you could say, is that they’re not exactly going to make you rich overnight.”Shopping for the right REIT takes time, and buying them takes faith, according to Thomas, but the returns can be high. Real-estate investment trusts that buy residential home loans increased their mortgage-bond portfolios by almost 28% to $308 billion over the 12 months through March, according to The Wall Street Journal’s Ben Eisen.Though these firms are small compared to the mortgage market as a whole, Eisen notes that some analysts express concern that they are putting more of the mortgage market into the hands of leveraged firms with minimal oversight, noting that some risky REITs went bust during the last financial crisis. However, some suggest that REITs make up an optimal backbone for the mortgage market, leveraging less risk than before the financial crisis and able to quickly raise and deploy money when they see an opportunity.“If you want to have more private capital in the market, you need to manage the risks,” Calvin Schnure, SVP for Research and Economic Analysis at Nareit, told the Journal. “Mortgage REITs hedge all of those risks.” The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Related Articles Investment real estate Recession REIT 2019-12-02 Seth Welborn Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Real Estate Investment Trusts: Safe Bet in a Recession?

Wedgwood axes staff and moves production to Asia

first_img Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. Wedgwood axes staff and moves production to AsiaOn 10 Jun 2003 in Personnel Today Waterford Wedgwood is following in the footsteps of vacuum cleaner firmDyson by moving part of its ceramics production to the Far East, shedding morethan 1,000 jobs. The company has announced the phased closure of two earthenware factoriesbased in Stoke-on-Trent, resulting in the loss of 761 production-related jobsand a further 297 infrastructure-related positions. In February last year, Dyson announced 800 UK redundancies as a result ofmoving production to Malaysia. A spokesman for Waterford Wedgwood said its management was consulting withthe pottery union CATU and hoped some of the job losses could be deliveredthrough voluntary redundancy. He said the firm has been hit by a combination of the growth of foreignimports in key UK and US markets and challenging trading conditions, meaning itis unable to compete against significantly lower overseas manufacturing costs. Richard Hawes, partner within consultancy Grant Thornton’s recovery andre-organisation practice, said the drain of jobs to the Far East wouldcontinue. “Attracted by cheap labouring costs, free trade zones and improvedglobal reach, many UK companies are following the example of the likes of Dysonand moving production lines to Asia to increase profit margins.” However John Philpott, chief economist for the Chartered Institute ofPersonnel and Development, does not believe there will be a huge exodus ofmanufacturing jobs abroad. “I think it is the lower cost, lower value operations that are most atrisk,” he said.

‘Allo ‘allo. French overtake Brits in productivity stakes

first_imgAccording to popular prejudice, UK workers are work obsessed and spend toomany hours in the office, with not enough leisure time, while the French arelazy, clock-watchers, ready to go on strike at a moment’s notice. But all this could be pure myth, according to new research by EU statisticalagency Eurostat. It has released figures on the average time working people spend on dailyactivities that challenge the image of the overworked UK employee. On average, UK men logged an average five hours and 42 minutes a day ingainful work or study. Frenchmen – supposedly living in the union utopia of a35-hour week – logged slightly more at five hours, 44 minutes. For women, the contrast was starker still. Women in the UK shun long workinghours in comparison with their Gallic sisters – registering only four hours andsix minutes per day, compared with four hours and 32 minutes by French women.

Press release: Companies House staff thanked for supporting Merthyr man’s mammoth cycle challenge

first_imgLouise Smyth, Chief Executive of Companies House, said: Well done to Chris who has taken on this mammoth challenge for a really worthy cause that affects so many of us. It’s great to see so many people at Companies House give up their time, money and sweat in support of that and with big smiles. We’ve had amazing support at places like Companies House from amazing people who have shown incredible generosity. Every bit of that keeps me going. To donate, visit his Just Giving page. Chris’ attempt, which began in December 2017, will be broken into four stages, which will see him cover vast distances across Europe, North America, Asia and Australia. Chris Daniels, 55, is hoping to cover the equivalent 18,000 miles – all while seated on a static bike – to set a world record and raise money for cancer charities.Former civil servant Chris spent a week peddling furiously in the foyer at Companies House in Cardiff, where staff donated generously and even joined him during the virtual ride.Chris, from Merthyr Tydfil, is undertaking the feat in memory of his late wife, Rita, who sadly died in 2016 after a battle with bowel cancer.Chris said: He has staged rides at venues across Wales, where people have donated money and joined in to raise funds for cancer charities of their choosing.So far, the efforts of Chris and his supporters have raised nearly £60,000 for 25 cancer charities.He added: Rita wanted to raise awareness and funds to fight all forms of cancer so in her honour I will be riding for Bowel Cancer UK, Velindre Cancer Centre and Cancer Research Wales. Rita was an incredibly inspirational person but sadly we lost her to bowel cancer. I’m doing this for her and everybody else who has been affected by cancer. You can follow Chris’ progress on his Facebook page.last_img read more
