Why I bought Scentre Group (ASX:SCG) shares

Who is Scentre Group Scentre Group is a Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) who own all of the Westfield supermarkets in Australia and derive income from renting the stores in the Westfield shopping centres, Scentre Group offer an attractive 5.71% dividend yield.

As Scentre Group is a real estate trust the income isn't too impacted by poor performance in the retail sector, after all, shops still need to pay rent, for this reason I feel that Scentre Group is a fairly safe bet with a high yield dividend payout.

Here are a couple more reasons I decided to buy Scentre Group shares.

Scentre Group shares are trading just below value Dividend yield of 5.71%Scentre Group is in the top 25% of dividend payers in Australia (5.6%)Retail stores will always need to pay rent regardless of an underperforming sector.Portfolio diversificationFranking at 30% is a little disappointing but better than 0%

Westpac's whopping dividend
At the time of consideration Westpac pays a 6.59% or $1.88 per share …

Could we be in for another Bitcoin bull run in 2020?

A cryptocurrency YouTuber I follow Louis Thomas posted a video titled "We're about to witness another Bitcoin bubble.." and upon watching it I can certainly see it happening based on the charts.
The original tweet posted by Twitter user "truenomic" shows two charts examining previous bull runs and bear markets, as compared with the volume, looking at these charts it's clear that we could be starting to approach a new bull run.
$BTC: I don't think it makes sense to deny the similarity of these cycles, and that we are at the foot of a new bubble.@woonomic@kenoshaking@ColeGarnerBTC@filbfilbpic.twitter.com/C6orV2If9a — Nik Jaremczuk (@truenomic) October 4, 2019



Pictured above is the chart that was posted in the original tweet, the red rectangles depict bear markets or areas of capitulation, and the yellow rectangles depict the area coming out of a bear market and into a phase of accumulation.
