SI Research: 3 Yield-Stocks See Surge In Buying Interests

The minutes of the Federal Reserve’s December 2018 meeting released on 9 January revealed that the US central bank is adopting a more dovish stance towards the pace of further rate hikes, in light of the easing inflation readings and growing uncertainty over the global economic outlook. Against this backdrop, we noticed a rekindled interest among investors to accumulate high-yielding stocks, in the hope of receiving periodic payouts which could at least buffer their returns should there be a large drop in asset prices. This was evidenced by FTSE ST Real Estate Investment Trusts Index already rising 4.5 percent within a short span of merely three weeks since the beginning of this year.
