4 REITs Building Investors Hopes This Earnings Season

We are at the onset of the Q1 earnings season and investors are glued to quarterly releases. One can be lured to stocks that have already impressed with profits. But instead of betting on them, picking stocks that are set to beat can be far more rewarding.
