In particular, precious metals have plunged and interest rates have been rising sharply.

    By Ryan Guenette - January 2, 2013 | Tickers: FRT, NNN, SPG, SKT, TCO

    A SWOT analysis is a look at a company’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats, and is a great way to gain a detailed and thorough perspective on a company and its future.

  • The Next Dividend Blowup?

    By Chad Henage - August 9, 2012 | Tickers: DDR, GRT, NNN, SPG

    Usually when investors hear that a company is a dividend aristocrat they assume that the stock would be a good long-term hold. In theory, a company doesn't increase its dividend for 25 straight years in a row without some type of stability in their operations.

The latest example is a company named, National Retail Properties (NYSE: NNN)

    The search for investment returns from non-traditional asset classes has driven the investor appetite to include Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs).  Publicly traded REITs have delivered long-term returns that have low correlation to equity markets in general.
