Outdoor Dining Is Doomed

These days, strolling through downtown New York City, where I live, is like picking your way through the aftermath of a party. In many ways, it is exactly that: The limp string lights, trash-strewn puddles, and splintering plywood are all relics of the raucous celebration known as outdoor dining.These wooden “streeteries” and the makeshift tables lining sidewalks first popped up during the depths of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020, when restaurants needed to get diners back in their seats.

Omega Healthcare Has Problems: Is It Time To Sell? (nyse:ohi)

Omega Healthcare Investors, Inc. (NYSE:OHI) is a very popular real estate investment trust ("REIT") because it is one of the highest-yielding investment-grade-rated companies. Moreover, OHI has also grown its dividend for 20 years in a row, which would suggest that its dividend is safe: Over the past year, OHI has massively outperformed the rest of the REIT sector (VNQ), and that's despite facing more challenges than your average REIT.
