Real Estate Stock Investment Picks from Forbes

From the Forbes Guru Roundtable
Best Investment Ideas for 2008-2009

According to Forbes Guru Peter Slatin, these are 7 real estate stock investments he recommends for the next 12 months. Peter is the editor of the Forbes/Slatin Real Estate Report.

He opens his report to say that even as real estate investment trusts have declined since last fall, some RES's still show strength and offer investors a very good rate of return. The lowered prices offer investment opportunity even while they increase concerns about interest rates, inflation, and other economic problems happening now.

The report is quoted as stating:
"Picking winners and losers in an arena where companies rise and fall with cyclical regularity means knowing who the players are - and, especially in real estate - which ones play by the rules."

His seven real estate stock recommendations are:
  • Brookfield Asset Management (nyse:BAM)
  • Capitaland Ltd. (Singapore:C31.SI)
  • Gafisa SA (nyse:GFA)
  • Homex Development (nyse:HXM)
  • Kimco Realty (nyse:KIM)
And for short term:
  • RAIT Financial Trust (nyse:RAS)
  • Gramercy Capital (nyse: GKK)
