REITs vs Stocks daily update – Oct 21, 2021

The stock market fluctuated through the day, but ended up just a bit higher – still it’s at it’s all time high (article). Snapchat stock sank 20% after missing Q3 earnings, but most corporate earnings have returned positive.

How this affects our $1000 investment in Wealthfront  – our Wealthfront stocks had a small gain. This puts our investment above the initial investment of $1000, currently at $1023.50.  

Today’s outcome is Stocks win over REITs, although minimal as there was a small 4 cent growth for Fundrise, Wealthfront had a daily gain of 96 cents. Still, the running total balance of REITs is $1,124.29, which is a a substantial gap over stock market, $1023.50.

TLDR; What’s this all about? I invested $1000 in both REITs (Real Estate Investment Trust) and the Stock Market, and now it’s a challenge to seeing which one will perform better in the next 5 years. You can read the start here.
