WRE - Washington Real Estate Investment Trust

Deciding on my first pick, was I going to go flashy or conservative with my pick so I will do both.  The stock I have loved forever and has over the history of Wall Street paid the most consecutive dividend every quarter.  So I pick Washington Real Estate Investment Trust:


WRE - Washington Real Estate Investment Trust
September 22, 2017 close=  $32.60
Year Range = $27.65-$33.96
Dividend= $1.20

WRE mainly invests in commercial properties around the Alexandria, Virginia and Washington D.C. metropolitan areas.  With government agencies alone they maintain a high occupancy in their buildings.  The company is also loved by hedge funds and institutional investors being 86% institutionally owned.  Love when the big boys agree with me!  The real reason to own WRE is for the dividend, especially if you can put this into a share builder or drip type brokerage account that will purchase additional shares for you with the dividend.  Buy WRE at any price, you are not buying it for the share price you are buying it for the dividend.  Over time the dividend will pay 4%-6% return on investment.  Not the most exciting stock in the world but its about making money over time.

I understand trying to purchase a stock that has a $32 price tag to get 100 shares is a big deal.  you want to purchase enough so that over time you make money and do not lose your profit on brokerage commissions, so if your broke but want more shares try this stock:

IRET - Investors Real Estate Trust
September 22, 2017 close = $5.81
Year Range = $5.60-$7.30
Dividend = $0.28

Same as above with WRE, buying for the dividend.  IRET is 55% institutional owned and invests in commercial properties and healthcare centers int he upper Midwest mainly North Dakota and Minnesota.

 Well I apologize, it has been awhile since I have written an article and checked in with the portfolio but I have been watching our stocks and must say we have been doing quite well!  The overall portfolio has increased by 25%.  Lets do a run down of where we were at last time on May 10, 2020 and the two stocks we added to the portfolio since then AYRO on 6/17/2020 and ORBN on 8/8/2020.

Liars and Buyer's and Bear's oh My!!!!!!!!! The Dow drops another 1000 points!

  VS.    If you have read my previous articles over the last couple of days I said I would be more worried if the DJIA corrected 2600 points in one day (10%)  well as of today that leaves us around 2,100 points off last week Wednesdays open.  I am still not in a panic and here is why: Bulls vs. Bears I'm looking at you right now stop talking to your dog and trying to make his head tilt to the side so you can do the Scooby Doo voice and say "Huh?" What are they? Why do people on Wall Street keep referring too all these Bull markets, all these Bear Markets?  Why do people on Wall Street go South most of the time, North every so often but never East and West? These are terms that Wall Street users identify certain periods of time.  A "Bull" market is one that is charging upward (like a Bull lifting its horns upwards no end in site) while a "Bear" market means things are on the way down (like a bear striking with its claws downward)
