Income investors looking for a sweet spot to collect the biggest and safest dividends have only to look toward real estate investment trusts (REITs). REITs are still on a tear, and you’ve read about quite a few of them among our Eagle Eye Openers. But with any single play, there always is a greater chance that performance of the company could fall off, taking share price and yield with it. That’s why the Market Vectors Mortgage REIT ETF (MORT) makes more sense. Its basketful of trusts offsets individual-company volatility yet still offers all of the upside in the real estate market while paying out a fat 13.27 percent dividend yield. As long as real estate continues to perform well, MORT will offer you a safer way to play that trend.
