Real Estate Sector ETFs Could Struggle in November
Real estate investment trusts (REITs) and the related exchange traded funds, including the iShares US Real Estate ETF (IYR) , are viewed as vulnerable to rising interest rates. The Federal Reserve has boosted rates three times this year and a fourth rate hike is widely expected in December, but some real estate ETFs have been surprisingly solid in recent weeks. IYR is up more than 1% over the past week, but historical data suggest investors may not want to be holding that fund when November arrives.

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. As the current environment progresses, it is a good time to consider the impact of inflation and an allocation to real assets.

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. In developed countries, inflation had languished below the central bank’s target level for many years.

Real Asset Companies Are on the Cusp of an Earnings Revival
Meanwhile, although it may be slowing, global growth has improved over the short-term, and despite some uncertainty around tariffs and global trade, supply/demand dynamics across many commodities are back in balance and look to become even more favorable in the near future. 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.

Look to REITs ETFs to Enhance Yield Generation
Real estate investment trusts and sector-related REIT ETFs have rebounded since the February correction, but investors may have overlooked this segment of the market.

Around 80% of investment advisors now recommend REITs to their clients, compared to 73% of surveyed advisors who recommended REIT exposure to clients in 2016.
