- America’s Economy Could Be In For A Rude Awakening
If you’re worried about why stocks are surging while millions of Americans are out of work and commercial bankruptcies are skyrocketing, I strongly urge you to listen to this message.
Action to take: Investors may like shares here, given the company’s exposure to real estate as well as a steady cash flow from providing cell phone tower lease locations. Shares pay a 3.4 percent dividend yield at today’s prices, a decent return with interest rates at zero percent, and with some price appreciation potential.
In terms of a trade, shares have been rangebound. They’re near the low end of their range. The April 2021 $170 calls, trading for about $3.85, have the potential to move higher if shares head toward the high point of the range at $180 in the coming months. Traders should look for a quick profit here.
