    Your book DIY Financial Advisor talks about improving REIT returns using momentum. As far as I know, there aren’t any REIT momentum ETFs on the market. There are good active ETFs for US stocks, foreign stocks, and commodities, but nothing for REITs. I could buy high-momentum REITs manually, but that takes more work and has tax implications for a non-tax-sheltered account. Have you guys considered coming out with a REIT momentum ETF, similar to what you have with QMOM and IMOM?

  • Hi Michael, can’t talk ETFs on our advisor site, but happy to discuss if you reach out via email or phone. Thanks, Wes
