Yield-starved investors should consider raising their REIT allocations, said Michael Pellegrino, Principal at Goldstone Financial Group. Pellegrino added that he is focusing on REITs with exposure to technology like data centers and cloud storage, as well as Health Care facilities. He said his firm is also using an index option spread strategy to generate monthly returns as opposed to bond funds. Pellegrino said options and inverse exchange traded funds can potentially produce returns in falling or stagnating markets, as well as protect portfolios from excessive volatility.
