Highlighting International Real Estate ETFs

china-real-estateWe Americans live in interesting times. On the one hand, our new Camelot-like president has raised the hopes of millions. On the other hand, we’re in the most challenging economic environment of our generation. Two victims of the meltdown have been real estate and the dollar: real estate because of all the overvalued properties, the dollar because of government spending. This may lead you to disregard any investment containing the words “real” and “estate.”  It may also lead you to think all investments are bad right now. Yet while the real estate market is suffering here, there can still be opportunity abroad. Broad-based international real estate ETFs could continue to do well despite the stateside economic situation.  iShares FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Developed Real Estate ex-US (IFGL) & SPDR Dow Jones Wilshire International Real Estate (RWX) are the most actively traded and both have done very well over the last several weeks.

The area getting the most attention: emerging markets. The report notes that 46% of the money managers are now overweight the emerging markets, compared to 26% back in April. The bullishness for China specifically is at its highest since the survey began tracking Chinese sentiment in 2003.....
