Members-Only Investment Ideas
As contrarian income-investors, we are seeing a variety of interesting investment opportunities among real estate investment trusts (“REITs”). The group has been beat up over the last year as investors fear the possible negative impacts of rising interest rate expectations, and they’ve shunned most REITs in favor of higher growth sectors of the market (such as aggressive growth technology stocks).
Many investors make the mistake of believing a higher yield is always a better yield. At Blue Harbinger, we believe in owning high quality yields, and we especially like it when a high quality yield has the health to keep growing. This article highlights an attractive, healthy company that offers a high quality yield that is expected to grow.
As the “Death of Retail” narrative grows, and investors fear that online retailers (like Amazon) will put all “brick and mortar” stores (like Sears, Macy’s and shopping malls) out of business, we are starting to see some interesting opportunities. This article reviews our current exposure to “brick and mortar” retail, and then shares an interesting investment idea for brave contrarian investors to consider.
One of our colleagues had a great line during his CNBC interview this week. He said: “As an investor, the pain of buying at 100 and watching something go to 10, is only trumped by the pain of actually selling something at 10 and watching it go to 100.” The post-earnings selloff this article discusses wasn’t anywhere near that extreme, but we do believe the worst is behind the company.
At Blue Harbinger, we tend to write frequently about investments that pay big dividends. However, not all attractive investments pay a dividend. This article focuses on an attractive “disciplined growth” company, that currently pays zero dividend, but has very attractive price appreciation potential, and it is currently “on sale,” in our view.
If you are an income-focused investor, big-distribution closed-end funds ("CEFs") can be very attractive, but there are a few things investors need to be aware of. This article reviews important pros and cons of CEFs, and then highlights three of our favorite high-income CEFs that income-focused investors may want to consider.
The Blue Harbinger Weekly:
A members-only weekly report on Blue Harbinger's investments and the market.
We like to share a variety of investment ideas with our readers, and today we share a differentiated high-yield opportunity that we have discussed in the past. It may not be interesting to everyone, but we believe the yield is attractive and the rewards outweigh the risks. Plus the price is attractive!
All three Blue Harbinger portfolios (Income Equity, Disciplined Growth, and Smart Beta) continue their long-term track records of outperforming the S&P 500. This report provides a brief update on August performance, and shares three attractive investment opportunities currently trading lower and thereby providing attractive entry points for investors.
We have owned this REIT since the start of 2016, and it has posted an impressive total return. However, its valuation remains reasonable considering it growth prospects, and we expect another dividend increase soon.
This week’s Blue Harbinger Weekly shares a compelling +5% yield opportunity, and the shares have sold off so far this month thereby making for a more attractive entry point, in our view. This company will benefit from the growing retail sector and doesn’t run the risk of getting “Amazoned” because it is indifferent between serving online versus brick and mortar retail customers.
If you are an income-focused investor, with capital appreciation as a secondary objective, then you may want to consider the double-digit yield offered by the stock we review in this article. Specifically, we detail the bull-side arguments, followed by a few bear-case caveats, and conclude with our views on how investors should consider this opportunity.
We finished July with positive returns for all three of our Blue Harbinger strategies (Income Equity, Disciplined Growth, and Smart Beta), and all three strategies continue to outperform the S&P 500 since their inception. This report provides a brief update on each of our current positions. We believe there is significantly more upside ahead.
