Investors will need to wait out the next year to reap the financial rewards of the next decade, according to Bill Smead, chief investment officer at Smead Capital Management.

“We know we have to sit through the next probably 12 months of probably the tide continuing to go out and going against us temporarily to get to the money we’re going to make over the next 10 years,” Smead said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box Europe” Wednesday.

Smead said capital and labor-intensive businesses were winners as the value of their income streams for the next decade “is way more viable than those stocks are representing.”

Smead Capital Management has oil and gas, land and Canadian lumber producers under its belt, which should all be bolstered thanks to the current property market in the U.S., Smead said.

“We know that we’ve got to build a lot of houses in the next 10 years,” he said.

The U.S. housing market boomed at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic as people looked to relocate and interest rates reached a record low, but it has since cooled as recession concerns weigh on the minds of prospective buyers and sellers.
