Amazon Legally Obligated to Pay You REITs or real estate investment trusts are required by law to pay at least 90% of their taxable income to shareholders, and most pay every 90 days (quarterly), as we were told, is how often these “blue chip payments” can be sent. In this case, Jason Williams is probably teasing a real estate investment trust (REIT). When you see someone talking about a stock that is “legally obligated” to pay you, it usually has to do with a REIT. “They all collect checks for this legally mandatory `tax` on Amazon`s profits. Jason Williams seems to have updated Britain`s Ryle`s presentation from over a year ago, whose premise was (and still is) that you can get free money from a legally justified deal. We are told that these payments are made every 90 days and that this is a kind of legally mandatory tax on Amazon`s profits (very misleading). But we`re going to do more of that in a minute, first check the indices and see what investment they`re referring to. Why is Amazon “forced” to “hand over” money to “ordinary Americans”? I suspect he`s talking about investing in Amazon-connected REITs (probably Amazon rented them space). I chose REITs because these trusts are required by law to pay dividends to investors. So he talks about generating dividend income.

Interestingly, Jason says that this money, courtesy of a law passed in 1952, is required by law: Ryle tells us that there are $1.498 billion in legally required payments to be made, and he has repeatedly mentioned that everything we really need to do has to “sign up.” “Amazon is required by law to give Prime Profits to people like you.

So when you see these comments about a stock that is “legally obligated” to pay you checks, it`s very often an indication of something like a REIT, a company that is indeed required to pay its profits in the form of dividends when it makes a profit. In practice, many REITs actually pay far more dividends than they would have had in “taxable income,” mainly because depreciation can be very high and amortization, while real, is not a cash cost – and many REITs have been very successful in selling new shares and borrowing to acquire new assets or finance capital projects. Instead of setting aside their depreciation costs to maintain the business, which helps to further increase dividend payments. They know that rising dividends lead to higher stock prices, and most management teams are paid in shares and also receive dividends. Incentives are important, and they`re not dummies, they know it`s important to maximize the dividend (within reason, of course, and keep the payout ratio in a safe area to make sure the business can continue to operate). “Other Americans are trying to get a 5% return by investing in Amazon. But you`ll cash checks that the tech giant is legally obligated to hand over.

A small group of Americans will celebrate when an earmarked reduction in these revenues enters a pot of more than $1.7 billion in legally binding payments. Oh, I forgot to mention – this time it`s jason Williams, who works for Energy & Capital, as part of his wealth management consulting service, who links to the same article through our old friend Angel Publishing. Could Amazon be forced to pay you In this report, it reveals how it thinks you can legally double your payments. ProLogis has led investors to expect an average annual return of 10-11% in its presentation papers in recent years, including 3% of the dividend and the remaining 7-8% of FFO growth. It`s a bit hard to rack your brains, because FFO is essentially a measure of cash flow and dividends come from cash flow, so it`s hard to add them up with a straight face unless it`s 7-8% of the FFO held after dividends. But it`s still a pretty reasonable goal for investors to keep in mind: If you`re investing in ProLogis today, an effective annual return of around 10% is certainly not a conservative assumption, but it`s probably reasonable to consider your future expectations. Maybe a little more if you reinvest that dividend and make it pay interest, or if interest rates fall negative (because those reinvested dividends gradually add more shares to your pile, which means you own more shares and will continue to earn dividends on those extra stocks in the future – the composition of dividends can become very dramatic, if you let them run for a long time and the company increases the dividend every year).
