The go-to guide for smart REIT investing The Intelligent REIT Investor is the definitive guide to real estate investment trusts, providing a clear, concise resource for individual investors, financial planners, and analysts—anyone who prioritizes dividend income and risk management as major components to wealth-building. Later this year, the REIT industry will experience a watershed event when Standard & Poors creates a new Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS) sector called Real Estate. On September 1st, publicly traded equity REITs will be removed from Financials, where they have been classified since their creation in 1960, and begin trading as their own S&P Sector. This separation from banks and financial institutions already is attracting new investors, but REITs require an industry-specific knowledge that is neither intuitive or readily accessible to newcomers—until now. Using straightforward language and simple example to illustrate important concepts, this book will enable any reader to quickly learn and understand the lexicon and valuation techniques used in REIT investing, providing a wealth of practical resources that streamline the learning process. The discussion explains terminology, metrics, and other key points, while examples illustrate the calculations used to evaluate opportunities. A comprehensive list of publicly-traded REITs provides key reference, giving you access to an important resource most investors and stockbrokers lack. REITs are companies that own or finance commercial rental properties, such as malls and apartment buildings. Despite historically high total returns relative to other investments, such as the Nasdaq or S&P 500 index, most investors are unfamiliar with the REIT industry, and wary of investing without adequate background. This book gets you up to speed on the essentials of REIT investing so you can make more informed—and profitable—decisions. Understand REITs processes, mechanisms, and industry Calculate key metrics to identify suitable companies Access historical performance tables and industry-specific terminology Identify publicly-traded REITs quickly and easily REITs have consistently outperformed many more widely known investments. Over the past 15-year period, for example, REITs returned an average of 11% per year, better than all other asset classes. Since 2009, REITs have enjoyed positive returns; large cap stocks and cash are the only other classes that paralleled that record. Even in 2015, a 'year of fear' related to rising rates, REITs returned 2.4%, beating most all other asset classes. REITs have a long history (over fifty years) of performance, and are about to enter the big leagues. If you feel like you've been missing out, don't keep missing out. Prepare yourself, and your portfolio, to benefit from the demand for REITs that will follow the creation of a Real Estate GICS sector. The Intelligent REIT Investor gives you the information you need to invest wisely and manage your real estate risk effectively. By maintaining a tactical exposure in the brick and mortar asset class, investors should benefit from the information contained in The Intelligent REIT Investor. Join the REIT world and look forward to owning stocks that will help you to sleep well at night.

From the author of How We Die, the extraordinary story of the development of modern medicine, told through the lives of the physician-scientists who paved the way. How does medical science advance? Popular historians would have us believe that a few heroic individuals, possessing superhuman talents, lead an unselfish quest to better the human condition. But as renowned Yale surgeon and medical historian Sherwin B. Nuland shows in this brilliant collection of linked life portraits, the theory bears little resemblance to the truth. Through the centuries, the men and women who have shaped the world of medicine have been not only very human, but also very much the products of their own times and places. Presenting compelling studies of great medical innovators and pioneers, Doctors gives us a fascinating history of modern medicine. Ranging from the legendary Father of Medicine, Hippocrates, to Andreas Vesalius, whose Renaissance masterwork on anatomy offered invaluable new insight into the human body, to Helen Taussig, founder of pediatric cardiology and co-inventor of the original "blue baby" operation, here is a volume filled with the spirit of ideas and the thrill of discovery.

Currently, there are nearly 200 publicly traded real estate investment trusts (more commonly referred to as REITs) in operation in the United Sates with a combined $500 billion in assets. An estimated two-thirds of REITS are traded on national stock exchanges. A REIT is a real estate company that offers its shares to the public. By doing so, a REIT stock becomes like any other stock that represents the holder s ownership in a business. However, REITs have two distinct features: REITs manage groups of income-producing properties and must distribute 90 percent of profits as dividends. The Complete Guide to Investing in REITs will teach you everything you need to know about REITs and how you can earn high rates of return. In this book, you will learn about publicly and privately held REITs, Net Asset Value (NAV), Adjusted Funds From Operations (AFFO), Cash Available for Distribution (CAD), the benefits associated with REITS, dividend reinvestment programs (DRiPs), capitalization rate, equitization, leverage, positive spread investing, securitization, and straight-lining. You will also learn about equity, mortgage, and hybrid REITs and the more specific types, including residential, office, industrial, and retail. The Complete Guide to Investing in REITs will walk you through finding the appropriate REIT for you. This book will also teach you how to manage your REIT, how to limit your personal risk, how to understand REIT performance, and how to analyze REITs. By reading this book, you will know and understand the pitfalls of investing in REITs, you will know how REITs behave as an investment class and how to best integrate them into your portfolio, and you will know what economic issues affect real estate and the effects these have on REITs.

Claim Your Share of Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) Profits From Around the World Ever since so many private real estate companies converted themselves into Real Estate Investment Trusts and held IPOs in the mid-1990s, and with the publication of the first edition of Investing in REITs: Real Estate Investment Trusts by Ralph L. Block, U.S. investors have been discovering the high dividend yields possible through investing in commercial real estate through publicly owned companies. REITs do not have to pay taxes on the income they distribute to unit holders -- and the government requires them to distribute at least 90%! This means they pay out a lot more money than ordinary corporations (who have to pay corporate taxes). REITs are cash cows. What's not so well known is that countries all over the world have been following the lead of the United States and creating their own versions of Real Estate Investment Trusts. Nearly 40 countries from Australia to Turkey have laws enabling some form of REITs, using the US as a model but ringing their own changes. By investing in foreign REITs you can: 1. Have a stream of income that's not dependent on the US dollar (or euro, or yen, or whatever your currency of residence is). By investing in foreign REITs, you get income in a large variety of other currencies, which may be going up in value as the US dollar falls. The two largest, oldest and most mature REIT countries in the world behind the US are Canada and Australia. Which two countries in the world have recently seen the value of their currencies go up dramatically? Canada and Australia. But Canadians and Australians needs apartments, office buildings and shopping malls just like everyone else. By buying shares of their REITs, you can get yourself some Canadian and Australian dollars. Two other kinds of dollars are going up in value -- both from busy and booming Asian port cities -- Hong Kong and Singapore. And both Hong Kong and Singapore have some great Real Estate Investment Trusts. 2. Have a stream of income from economic activity that may be up while your local area is down. Most people's jobs are dependent upon their local economy. However, when business is slow in your area, it may be great in Paris, Dubai or Kuala Lumpur. We also know that while the entire U.S. real estate market can be slow, real estate in other countries may still be booming. 3. Worldwide inflation protection Well run REITs will do all they can to increase their net incomes, including raise rents to keep up with inflation -- wherever they are located. Ever wanted to benefit from Japanese people paying rent for their apartments? Or from businesses paying for offices in prestigious districts of Paris? Or from tourists buying clothes in the trendy shops of Soho London? Or from jet setters tanning themselves at Mediterranean luxury resorts? Or from Australian wine vinyards? Or even from Bulgarian farmers renting land to grow wheat on? Or from drinkers having a pint in AB InBev's chain of European pubs? From the warehouses and shipping docks of China? Now you can! In the last chapter you learn the investments that you can tell your broker to buy for you to profit from REITs around the world. It's simple, easy and -- in this globalized world of international financial crises, a smart move to protect you and your family's wealth. 38,000 words. Therefore, send away for REITs Around the World now!

Leaving his Pennsylvania steel town home as a young man, author Kenneth D. Campbell scrambled to land a magazine writer’s job in Manhattan. He followed his new boss’s instruction to “Watch that rat hole,” newspaper slang for a “beat” or coverage topic. Campbell’s “rat hole” was the real estate investment trusts or REITs, untested entities just approved by Congress. In Watch that Rat Hole, Campbell intertwines his personal journey with his unique observations as an investment newsletter editor witnessing the REIT Revolution—his rat hole. He tells how that casual assignment became a distinguished lifework in three areas: Writing—Campbell wrote an influential REIT stock market newsletter and co-authored the first hardcover REIT book; Investment banking—He and his partner advised on more than two dozen mergers and acquisitions; Managing money—Campbell co-founded a major realty stock money manager. In addition, he provides an insider’s take on investment styles of 1980s activists including Carl Icahn, Michael Milken, Leland Speed, Sam Zell, and Warren Buffett and their nearly two dozen company purchases and takeovers. And, he presents valuable insights into a number of business and stock market issues. Offering personal recollections of the world of real-estate investment, Watch that Rat Hole gives insight into REITs, this little-understood—but pivotal—area of business and finance.

"This is simply the best book on the topic.” —Randall Bell, Author, Home Owner's Manual "Tyson and Griswold have truly opened the world of real estate investing to all by tackling often complex issues in this easy to understand and use book. I can't think of a better way to get smart about building wealth through rental properties than to read their excellent Real Estate Investing For Dummies!" —Vern Hoven, CPA Non-prime time TV is cluttered with infomercials about how you can buy non-prime real estate for next to nothing and get rich quick. Common sense should tell you that’s an exaggeration. (If common sense doesn’t tell you, bankers will.) Nevertheless, it is possible to get rich gradually by investing in real estate. Long term, you can expect to realize an annual return of 8 to 10% a year. Real Estate Investing for Dummies gives you the keys to successful real estate investment, whether it’s in single family homes and condos, apartments, vacation homes, commercial properties (office, industrial, and retail), raw land, or REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts). With guidance from authors Eric Tyson, MBA, a financial counselor, and Robert S. Griswold, a veteran real estate investor, you’ll discover how to: Find and buy the best properties at a fair price Capitalize on opportunities such as foreclosures, no money down deals, auctions, tax sales, and more Secure financing and good mortgage terms Value, evaluate, and negotiate everything to do with real estate Work with agents and other professionals Project income potential and cash flow Handle contracts, inspections, and closings Whether you’re interested in a fixer supper for rental, premier office space you can lease, or a vacation home you can enjoy and rent, when you become a buyer, you also become a landlord. That means you can hear from tenants any time, night or day. It means you may not hear from them when the rent is due. Real Estate Investing for Dummies also helps you: Find and keep good tenants Negotiate lease agreements Insure and maintain your property Keep good records for tax and accounting purposes Remember, with any deal, you have to know when to hold them and know when to fold them. So Real Estate Investing for Dummies gives you guidelines on when and how to sell and how to reinvest to build wealth. It also lists 10 real estate investments you shouldn’t touch with a 10-foot pole. Especially if you’re tempted by those late-night infomercials, that warning could save you a fortune!
