Why We're Buying Real Assets Instead Of Stocks And Bonds

Apr. 07, 2021 8:25 AM ETAMLP, VNQ, WPC10 Comments


  • The S&P 500 and 10-year Treasury note are yielding a paltry 1.5%, making them poor choices right now for income investors.
  • Even worse: Valuations remain near all-time highs in the stock market, with the S&P 500 at a P/E of 40, meaning there is little margin of safety.
  • We believe real assets offer higher yields, higher return potential, and can serve as a much-needed inflation hedge.

An asset is any economic resource that has the potential to provide future value. Assets are a tool for building and converting wealth and purchasing power. In the financial world, the most popular assets are stocks, or equities, and bonds. These are known as “financial assets.”
