Southern California Home Sales Dip to Four-Year Low
Contributing to the lackluster sales was less supply provided by homebuilders--as such, the sales of newly built homes was 47 percent below the June average. “A portion of last month’s year-over-year sales decline reflects one less business day for deals to be recorded compared with June 2017,” said CoreLogic analyst Andrew LePage. Higher rates equal to higher mortgage payments for a Southern California real estate market that is already pricing out would-be homebuyers.

Current Economic Tailwinds Are Powering Real Assets
As the headwinds are likely to continue to dissipate, the potential benefits of real asset investing are coming into clearer focus. Notably, an allocation to real assets can be used to help investors enhance portfolio diversification, gain exposure to global growth, and hedge against the impact of inflation.

Shifting Economic Winds Could Be Good for Real Assets
Inflation is something that has not been seen in well over a decade, but the ingredients are there: a strong U.S. economy, unemployment at historic lows, and the recent stimuli of tax reform, deregulation, and government spending, which may not even have fully taken hold yet. Plus, recent indications from the Fed continue to indicate a potentially more aggressive approach to tightening.

Real Asset Companies Are on the Cusp of an Earnings Revival

Plus, companies across many of the primary industries associated with real assets are now in improved financial and operational shape after several years of restructuring to reduce capital expenditure and improve overall efficiency. The IMF (International Monetary Fund) expects the global economy to register a growth of 3.9% in 2018 and 3.9% in 2019.

Why the Recent REIT Rebound Could Stretch a Little Further
