Aside from being the largest real estate investment trust (REIT) by market capitalization, American Tower (NYSE: AMT) has been a tremendous wealth builder over the years, providing a nearly 15% annualized return for the past 20 years. The REIT, which owns, develops, and leases communications towers and data centers, is down just over 6% this year.
