Post subject:  TREITs

Something I was thinking about over the weekend... One of my old posts.

Alternative to normal REITs. Timber REITs don't really fall far in price compared to other REITs when crisis hits. Timber prices may fall but it has a unique advantage because unlike normal Real Estate, timber keeps and actually grows in value because the timber itself grows. Now the return is mid to low single digit returns on average but if you are already trading in basic materials this might be a good diversification tactic as they have less volatility and show to outperform basic material ETFs. Just something I was introduced to so thought I'd share.

Some examples that have done well are NYSE:CUT and NYSE:WOOD.
