REITs vs Stocks daily update – Oct 12, 2021
Stocks ended in the red for this Tuesday as there are rising concerns around inflation, the continued supply chain shortages and the rise in oil prices and lumber. Th market is waiting on the Fed’s discussion tomorrow on how they plan on proceeding with interest rate increase (article). The S&P 500 was lower by 0.2% and Nasdaq index was lower by 0.1%.
How this affects our $1000 investment in Wealthfront – our Wealthfront stocks dropped a bit more today and continues to be below our initial investment of 1000, currently at $984.34.
Today’s outcome is REITs win over Stocks today, with a small 7 cent growth in Fundrise compared to a daily decrease of $1.94 from Wealthfront. Still, the running total balance of REITs is $1,123.09, which is a a substantial gap over stock market, $984.34 which seems to continue to decline.
