The common consensus is that real estate investment trusts (Reits) do good for the world. Recent COVID-19 outbreaks have adversely affected the real estate market. Fortunately, the market is now recovering. Investors who incorporate the best REITs into their portfolios would be doing themselves a great favor.
Since REITs have many focus areas, they present a difficult portfolio choice. It is virtually impossible to find the right portfolio. The best way to accomplish this goal is to diversify your portfolio or to pick more than one stock.
Real estate investment trusts provide income and inflation protection. As a result, they are a source of passive income in addition to dividends. For this reason, REITs are very popular investments.
The following factors should be considered when choosing stocks and real estate investment trusts. In general, REIT ETFs are better investments than individual stocks in real estate. Low costs and easy diversification are characteristics of real estate investment trusts (REITs). Usually, they also payout dividends.
Investing in REITs might have been on your radar in the past. Which are the best ways to invest? Consider these options.
With the properties listed above, the three best REITs stocks listed below are the best buys at the moment.
Americold Realty Trust (COLD) saw an uptrend of 1.35% in the recent trading with $31.58 being it’s most recent. The current price level is 22.69% lower than the highest price of $40.85 marked by the stock while trading over the past 52 weeks, whereas it is -13.27% higher than the lowest price of $27.88 the company dropped to over the past 52 weeks.
It has a 12-month low price of $27.88 and touched a high of $40.85 over the same period. Currently, 3.65 million shares have been traded, compared to an average intraday trading volume of 2.44M shares. The stock is trading above its simple moving averages at the SMA20, SMA50, and SMA200, as the current price level is off by 5.68%, 2.30%, and -12.55% respectively.
Duke Realty Corporation (NYSE: DRE) does about 1.58M shares in volume on a normal day but saw 1.54 million shares change hands in Tuesday trading. The company now has a market cap of $22.01 billion. Its current market price is $57.75, marking a decrease of -0.21% compared to the previous close of $57.87.

Prologis Inc’s (PLD) stock price was $150.20 at the previous market close, with its latest volume reaching 1.32 million. Compare that to its average daily volume of 2.24M. Given the fact that this stock has 739.44M shares outstanding, its current market value is sitting at $149.47.
Another indicator we believe is worth keeping tabs on is the Moving Average Convergence Divergence or MACD. Similar to the concept of the Force Index — on the basis of price momentum — the MACD gives traders a tool to measure the turning point of a stock even during rapid fluctuations in price. Buy and sell signals are determined by a stock’s relation to the zero line, so if a stock is above a zero line for many weeks it might be a “buy.” On the other hand, if a stock is below the zero line consistently, it might be one to stay away from. Also, if the MACD line reaches a peak and dips, its momentum may be waning. PLD’s 9-day MACD is 0.91 and the company’s 100-day MACD stands at 16.33.
