Industrial REITs may be the safe play in the short-term and provide more stability. Weyerhaeuser Co. has performed very well over the last 6 months but does offer a lower dividend yield than some of its peers. Companies like Louisiana-Pacific Corp. may offer more upside in the long-term if the housing market picks up. www.SignalWatcher.com gives traders a unique insight about Weyerhaeuser Co. and Louisiana-Pacific Corp. by registering now at http://signalwatcher.com/WY/April112012.php or http://signalwatcher.com/LPX/April112012.php.
Rising commodity costs stemming from inflation will affect nearly all types of companies though. Rising timber prices could be a major concern if demand continues to stagnate and producers are unable to pass along higher costs to consumers.
Overall, there are a variety of interesting ways to play the timber industry at this time. REITs may be the safe play but traditional lumber producers offer a lot of upside but with potentially more risk.
