Portfolio as 1-Mar 2019
This is the question I often been asked as dividend income investor and my answer is yes or no. Rising interest rate means the economy is good and central is expecting some kind of inflation. Some business like finance and banks will be benefited in a rising interest environment and some might be able to pass the cost to the consumer like alcoholic beverages. While some might be affected due to higher interest cost on loan or CAPEX like REIT / Property developer or even Telco....but even among the REITs, if those are in a good location and high demand sectors, it might still enjoy a positive rental reversion to mitigate the cost of the rising interest rate.
The key is to have a more diversified portfolio ...when interest rate may have a different impact on different sectors." You gain some, you lose some "
