Don’t Play Any REIT, Play the 26 Best for 13.2 Percent Yield
Don’t Play Any REIT, Play the 26 Best for 13.2 Percent Yield (YahooFinance)
If you’re a regular reader of Eagle Daily Investor, you know we often feature dividend-paying investments. And real estate investment trusts (REITs) have been mentioned frequently for their robust yields this year — a trend which should extend throughout 2014. To take advantage of REITs’ consistent income stream, many investors are looking past single-company trusts toward exchange-traded funds (ETFs). And the Market Vectors Mortgage REIT ETF (MORT) is a solid choice in this area. It currently offers a 13.2 percent yield while reducing risk for investors by playing a basketfull of REITs instead of a single company. MORT has posted a 9.56 percent year-to-date gain in addition to its handsome dividend. If consistent income is a goal for you this year, MORT could be the REIT play.
