    There are times when I find better insights under the comments section than in the actual video/content!

    What a gem! Go to 3:30 where we hear that "SRVR provides the backbone for 21, 22 and 23 century". Yes, Kevin we ( I mean homo sapiens) nailed it as we are so good at predicting the next quarter of two why not leap 200-300 years ahead into the future. I am sorry, I could not continue watching after that as it so obviously above my comprehension and imagination.

    It would be interesting to invite Brad Thomas on for some counterpoints to the rates going up = REITs going down narrative. Just a suggestion because I would like to hear both sides of the argument.

    In terms of SRVR, I hear him about the growth of data centers. But some part of me sees things shrinking dramatically in terms of size, and increasing in terms of performance. I like the idea of Data Center REIT's, and I see the value of them not being owned by the large technology users, but instead being leased. But, somewhere in here I think the size of the computers might drop and then the demand for space might shrink. It's unlikely, but I'm not sure that I prefer these dramatically to say an apartment complex where i'm only betting on the population gently increasing to keep my complex full.

    Any time someone makes a prediction more than a few years out I giggle....especially an aggressive one. "50 to 100 years" is a ridiculous one know what things that far out will look like investment wise.

    For me, I don’t care for pairs. However I sometimes consider a long in AMT, one of the heavy weights in his etf, but in the end I am never willing to pay that much. I don’t like pricey yield stuff. All I want is a growth rate, a multiple, and a chart I can swing trade. I keep passing.

    Liquidity, SRVR has traded only 200 shares today? Stop is meaningless.

    Clearly appears to be a spread trade and not two separate trades. As such shouldn't both entry levels and stops be on a spread basis and not separate? Given that it is a spread would have been nice to see some discussion as to whether he recommends the spread being dollar neutral, beta neutral, or maybe even yield/carry neutral.

    The returns over a 3 year period (about 10%) isn't very appealing.

    as a summary
    you short VNQ and long SRVR, they are positively correlated ... but unless he did the sum of the parts to have a bit of history you cannot possibly say that if one goes down 10% the other one goes down 4% with any degree of confidence since it is a very new product.
    plus it probably has a high correlation with the tech industry which in my view we should be expecting some sector rotation soon.
    plus you have a negative carry ( -4%+ 3.3% ) without adding any other fees and you are planning on holding it for 3 years.
    sorry but it did not convince me, great way of promoting a new etf though. :)
