Our trade alert for today focuses on a value-style investment that offers a powerful combination of growth and income. Read on to learn more.

STAG Industrial, Inc. (STAG) is a real estate investment trust focused on acquisition and operation of single-tenant, industrial properties throughout the U.S.. The company currently owns 494 properties with 99.1 million square feet of space.
STAG is active across all aspects of the industrial real estate market, including owning light manufacturing properties and flex/office space. Because these properties are essential to their tenants, STAG was able to collect nearly all the rent billed last year. Flex/office space is a market estimated at $1 trillion of properties in the U.S. alone. With just 0.5% share of that market, STAG has plenty of room to grow.
STAG’s portfolio is continually expanding through acquisition. It will often purchase value-add properties and leverage its substantial leasing and redevelopment experience to increase shareholder value Over the next five years, it plans to spend $800 million to $1.2 billion on property purchases.
Thanks to this acquisition strategy, the company’s payout has been slowly but steadily increasing. Given the REIT’s aim to invest billions in expanding its portfolio over the next five years, that trend should continue. The stock sports a hefty, 4% yield, which is paid out monthly, making it even more attractive to income-seeking investors.
STAG has developed an investment strategy that helps investors find a powerful balance of income plus growth. That income with upside makes them a great high-yield REIT to consider adding to your portfolio.
