Some stocks were able to post impressive performances despite the volatility

When the first quarter of 2020 ended on March 31, the S&P 500 was down 20% year to date on the back of the fear caused by the novel coronavirus outbreak as well as the oil price war between OPEC leader Saudi Arabia and Russia. Over the same period, the Nasdaq Composite declined 14.2% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average posted a return of 23.2%.

Some of the companies within the S&P 500 Index, however, had better luck. According to the GuruFocus All-in-One Screener, a feature for Premium users, stocks that beat the benchmark

After outperforming both the S&P 500 and sector ETF, Digital Realty still has plenty of reasons to move higher

Finding stocks that have traded higher this year in the current environment is difficult. Even after the best week for markets since the 1930s, the S&P 500 is still down nearly 19% year-to-date.

One company that has actually traded higher this year is Digital Realty Trust (DLR). Digital Realty has seen its share price climb 12% so far in 2020, beating both the market index and the iShares U.S. Real Estate ETF (IYR), which has lost almost 25% so far this year.

In fact, Digital Realty has outperformed both indexes over the past five years, returning 101% over this period

While Switch is registering growth in data center colocation and connectivity, it is lagging behind the industry and is trading at a rich valuation

Switch Inc. (SWCH), a data center infrastructure company, reported rather disappointing quarterly results last week.

While the company's revenue grew 9.6% from the prior-year quarter to $97.7 million, it missed expectations of $100.6 million. Earnings per share were 2 cents, just shy of the estimates of 4 cents.

During the quarter, Switch secured a colocation deal with an international streaming player. The streaming corporation is planning to use Switch’s North American data centers to host its services. The value of this contract, along with another government contract, exceeds $100 million in incremental revenue. By the end of the first quarter,

Digital Realty will likely announce a new dividend increase this week

(Published Feb. 15 by Bob Ciura)

There is an abundance of data that comes from our devices. Real estate investment trusts, or REITs, that own properties used to store this data—like Digital Realty Trust Inc. (DLR)—have benefited tremendously from our love of the internet.

The stock rose 33% in the past year alone, not including dividends.

Even better, Digital Realty has raised its dividend for 11 years in a row, every year since its 2004 initial public offering.

This makes it a Dividend Achiever, a group of 272 stocks with at least 10 years of consecutive dividend increases.

Real estate sector returning 6.65%

After Wednesday, S&P will include a new real estate sector for its S&P 500 Index. S&P 500 stocks were previously reported in 10 sectors and real estate investments had been included within the financials sector.

The majority of companies in the new real estate sector will be real estate investment trusts. However, mortgage REITs will continue to remain within the financials sector.

The new sector will provide an increased focus on real estate investments and will provide an added opportunity for investors to capitalize on the recent gains in the housing market. In the financials sector, investors will also have

Digital Realty has boosted its dividend for more than 10 consecutive years

Digital Realty Trust (DLR) is a fast-growing real estate investment trust (REIT) that has raised its dividend every year since going public in 2004.

While the company is far from having a long enough dividend growth history to quality as a member of the dividend aristocrats list, it has numerous attractive qualities.

Digital Realty is a direct beneficiary of the rapidly growing usage of data by businesses and consumers alike. It powered through the financial crisis and also scores well for dividend safety and growth.

Instead, these are 10 individual selections with various degrees of safety, yield and valuation levels that prospective investors can choose from.

Investing in the same company at different valuation levels produces very different results

Although getting valuation right before you buy a stock is critically important to the long-term oriented retired dividend growth investor, it is not a short-term market timing concept. My point is that short-term market movements are typically volatile and unpredictable. The reason is simple. Over short periods of time, which I define as less than a business cycle (three to five years), emotion has a major effect on stock prices.

When dealing with common stock investments, the primary emotions that interfere with reason are fear and greed. However, there are also subtle nuances associated with these primary emotional responses. For

U.S. REITs were created in 1960 by Congress as a way for all investors to have access to large-scale, income-producing real estate. To qualify as a REIT, the trust must comply with IRS rules. These rules include: 1) distributing annually as dividends at least 90% of its taxable income, 2) investing at least 75% of its total assets in real estate and 3) deriving at least 75% of gross income from real estate.

The 90% distribution requirement along with no corporate income taxes are two reasons REITs yields are often above average. However, it is important to note that

In the U.S. and certain parts of the world, real estate is driving up property sales. On the stock exchange, real estate stocks that are paying dividends are becoming a gold mine for some investors. However, knowing which property stocks to buy can be the difference between making a big loss or a hefty profit.

While economies such as the U.S. and other countries continue to show growth, the real estate market also is making strides and owning a piece of prime property can increase one's financial portfolio. In addition, properties in certain neighborhoods and carry certain assets on
