Top 5 Growth Stocks For 2014

[ November 2, 2013 | Author: admin | Weather: | Mood: normal]

I have found a new emerging markets play for income investing; this stock idea is a FIBRA, which is a Mexican Real Estate Investment Trust, explains international stock specialist Vivian Lewis, editor of Global Investing.

Our new stock idea is a FIBRA, a Mexican Real Estate Investment Trust or REIT. Mexico created the REIT instrument at the end of 2010 after five years of struggle.

As in the US, rules allow FIBRAs to pass through income tax-free to shareholders, on condition that 70% of the assets are invested in real estate, 95% of income is distributed annually, and shares are widely held.

The FIBRA shares that we are recommending provide a way to play the Mexican economic reform program being undertaken by the center and right parties, which includes allowing private exploration for the country’s oil, improving education by cutting the power of the teachers’ union, and opening up to foreign investment.

While recent numbers on Mexican growth rates show a contraction (Q2 is down 0.74% from prior year Q2), the country’s respected and honest statistical office still expects a real growth rate of 1.8% for this calendar year. Q2 is a reflection of world conditions rather than a Mexican problem.
