Daily Stock Pick: July 13th, 2022

Stocks slid in early trading after the Consumer Price Index reading for June came in hot at 9.1%, surpassing May’s 8.6% increase and Wall Street’s expectation of an 8.8% increase from the previous year.  The evidence of unrelenting inflation is widely expected to prompt the central bank to hike another 75 basis points during the upcoming meeting and/or raise expectations of an even more significant increase to tame surging prices.  

“There’s no spinning this, other than the Fed has to get more aggressive near term and crush demand.  That cements a recession now,” said Liz Ann Sonders of Charles Schwab. 

With the growing potential for a tighter Fed, many of the pros on Wall Street are predicting that the drastic sell-off will continue in 2022 as the focus could shift further from pricey growth stocks toward tickers that offer value and a reliable payout.  But you don’t have to sacrifice growth for value and stability. 

Today we’re highlighting a real estate investment that should appeal to readers seeking value and growth.  If you’re looking to unlock this powerful combination, look no further.   


 STAG Industrial, Inc. (STAG) is a real estate investment trust focused on acquiring and operating single-tenant, industrial properties throughout the U.S.  The company currently owns 517 properties across 40 states with 103.4 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 comfortable 4.9% 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 robust balance of income plus growth.  That income with upside makes them a great high-yield REIT to consider adding to your portfolio.
