15.25 Percent Yield Is Courtesy of the Fed

15.25 Percent Yield Is Courtesy of the Fed (TheGlobalGuru.com)

Earlier this month, Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago President Charles Evans said the Fed would keep rates near zero well into 2015 due to the country’s uneven recovery. And he immediately became the best buddy of investors in the iShares Mortgage Real Estate Capped ETF (REM). Unlike REITs that generate income by managing properties and collecting rent, REM profits on the spread between the short-term interest rate and income from mortgage-backed securities. So thanks to Evans, REM’s impressive 15.25 percent yield looks to be a solid play into the next year.
