The Secret Play to Make Before the Pinterest IPO

Article was originally posted here

The Pinterest IPO is one of the most highly anticipated public offerings of 2019, as the social media site is on pace to double its revenue from $500 million in 2017 to $1 billion in 2018.

With shares of Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) and Snap Inc. (NYSE: SNAP) in a free fall, investors are wondering if this is now the best play in the social media space.

That’s a fair question, especially considering certain IPOs have delivered significant short-term gains this year…

Take AGM Group Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: AGMH).

AGM Group provides financial technology services to brokers and institutional clients in China. After going public on April 18 at $5.75 per share, the AGM stock price skyrocketed 525% to today’s (Nov. 19) price of $35.98.

And don’t forget about Goosehead Insurance Inc. (NASDAQ: GSHD). After going public for $12 per share on April 27, GSHD now trades for $22.37, a gain of 86% in just seven months.

However, investing in IPOs is still a speculator’s game. You have to risk your hard-earned money in the hopes of IPO prices skyrocketing, and then get out at the right time to cash in and actually profit.

That isn’t for everyone.

Don’t Miss Out: The Treasury is sitting on an $11.1 billion cash pile, and a loophole entitles Americans to a sizable portion. Some are collecting $1,795, $3,000, or $5,000 every month thanks to this powerful investment…

Here at Money Morning, we recognize that you’re working hard for financial freedom.

Speculating can be profitable, but it isn’t a strategy for building real wealth over time.

That’s why we’ve emphasized an approach that taps into market fundamentals and rewards you with the upside of both share price appreciation and rock-solid dividends.

There are many ways to make money – cold hard cash – from the wave of technology firms poised to go public in 2019 and beyond.

And we’ve found the top way to do it with the impending Pinterest IPO.

With the company we’re about to discuss, you can make money, no matter what happens at the Pinterest IPO.

In fact, you would essentially become the “landlord” of Pinterest…

The Secret Play to Make Money from the Pinterest IPO

The company to buy on the back of Pinterest’s IPO is called Alexandria Real Estate Equities Inc. (NYSE: ARE).

Alexandria Equities has ballooned into an $18 billion real estate giant since its inception in a garage back in 1994. The company has an extensive history of taking small real estate assets and transforming them into advanced laboratories or commercial office spaces.

It has specialized in creating life science campuses, biopharma centers, and technology hubs.

And right now, ARE has a perfect Money Morning Stock VQScore™ score of 4.

That signals the stock could break out for potential triple-digit gains over the next 12 months.

Alexandria has become a juggernaut in the real estate sector to create urban hotspots known as “clusters” that bring many companies together to increase productivity, innovation, and financial and operational efficiencies.

The concept of clustering is a 20-year-old competitive strategy advocated by Harvard economist Michael Porter.

Naturally, that clustering strategy has brought the firm a wealth of innovative tenants in locations around the country including Boston, San Diego, Seattle, New York, and other hotbeds of technology and biopharma innovation.

Alexandria created Google’s first campus, and it also acts as a landlord to Pinterest and other tech giants like Uber, Facebook, and Stripe.

Roughly 11% of Alexandria’s revenue comes from technology companies.

And demand for its space is exceptionally high…

The firm’s occupancy rate sits at 97%, a sign that further expansion and growth is inevitable.

Recently, the firm closed on a 550,000-square-foot facility on the east side of Manhattan.

The firm is developing the Alexandria Center for Life Science campus starting in 2020, and construction will be completed by 2022.

But that’s not all: Alexandra is one of several real estate operators that will see a boost of activity thanks to the Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) decision to split its new headquarters between Long Island City, N.Y., and Crystal City, Va.

Alexandra already leases an extensive amount of property to Amazon, including an 85,000-square-foot technology hub in San Diego, Calif.

The real estate firm also just recently purchased the Bindery building in Long Island City for $75 million. That 175,000-square-foot property closed last month for a price of $430 per square foot.

With Amazon moving into the area, real estate analysts are estimating that new tenants could soon expect to pay upward of 40% more for both housing and commercial real estate.

Looking ahead, investors can avoid the dangers of IPOs if they’re concerned about short-term price fluctuations.

Instead, they can turn their attention to generating cash directly from the companies’ operations and securing the upside of the broader industry as companies attempt to innovate and grow.

To reward its shareholders, ARE pays a dividend of $3.72, which is a yield of 3.03%.

Millions of Americans Now Entitled to Collect “Federal Rent Checks”

Forty-six years ago, Congress passed an obscure piece of legislation known as Public Law 92-313. And today, it’s why the Treasury is sitting on top of an $11.1 billion pile of money.

Fortunately, Americans from coast to coast have discovered a loophole that entitles them to a sizable portion of this cash.

And they’re racing to add their names to a special distribution list.

Some are now receiving monthly checks worth $1,795 each. Others are collecting $3,000, $5,000, or more every month. If you want to join them in this powerful investment income stream, you better hurry up.

Because this cash is getting scooped up left and right!
