Next week, the Federal Open Market Committee will gather to discuss monetary policy for the year ahead.
After three straight interest rate cuts, investors anticipate that the Fed will pause on the benchmark rate. However, Fed Chair Jerome Powell has already signaled that the central bank will keep interest rates lower for longer to support the markets, U.S. employment, and inflation.
Lower for longer means that investors must seek alternative investment vehicles to offset falling bond yields and weak income payment.
If you're living on a fixed income, a 10-year bond rate under 2% isn't going to do much for your money, given the rate of inflation sits at 1.8% in the United States.
Instead, you should look at Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs).
These alternative vehicles produce gobs of cash thanks to their rental activities, higher appreciation upside due to increasing real estate demand, and favorable tax benefits to their unitholders.
And the one I'm showing you today is expanding at an impressive rate.
