I am always looking for new investment ideas and the current one I have stumbled upon are data center REITs. If you are addicted to your smartphone, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram then you should know that you consuming a large amount of data that must be stored somewhere. This is where data centers come in. Everything today is about data from you banking records, bills, student records and your vacation pictures to name a few. Data Centers provide storage as a commodity at a price to host of companies. They pay out a portion of their profits as dividends to shareholders via REITs. You can see how this would be a great investment as time goes on. It is not like we are going to stop consuming data. In fact as time passes we will be consumimg even more data as more of the world goes digital.
