Make the REIT Decision on Dividends in 2014 (YahooFinance.com)
Even though a number of real estate investment trusts (REITs) took a beating in 2013, that doesn???t mean they should be avoided this year for investors looking to supplement their income. In fact, just the opposite is true. And one of the best ways to ensure that your REIT investment consistently pays off throughout the year is by playing the best-performing trusts out there — all at once — through the Market Vectors Mortgage REIT ETF (MORT). It???s currently offering a fat 10.16% yield and looks to do so for as long as the Federal Reserve keeps rates low, which now seems will be well into 2015.
