Data center real estate investment trusts (‘REITs’) are a great source of income with ample growth opportunities given the secular tailwinds underpinning data demand growth. The proliferation of cloud computing, the Internet of Things (‘IoT’) trend, the rise of autonomous automobiles, households that previously did not have access to the Internet gaining access (particularly in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asian), the rollout of 5G wireless services, and other factors are all driving up data demand around the world. In turn, that makes it easier for data center REITs to renew existing leases, sign new leases, and expand their asset bases. Digital Realty Trust is one of our favorite data center REITs given its global footprint, scale, and commitment to income seeking investors as it has pushed through 15+ years on consecutive annual dividend increases. Shares of DLR yield ~4.1% as of this writing.
