Dividends4Life: 2 Best High-Yield REITs for Income and Growth

2 Best High-Yield REITs for Income and Growth

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, November 04, 2014 | | 0 comments »

Before I get to this week’s picks, I’ll address the elephant in the room: Most high-yield sectors were caught up in the recent market selloff, thanks to an overwhelming “risk off” change in sentiment. Many of these stocks are less liquid. So, if large sellers show up when the bid side of the market is soft, they will endure sharp short-term declines.

As a group, real estate investment trusts are up more than 4% since Oct. 1, while the broader S&P 500 is down 4%. My top names in this area certainly have a lot going for them: strong analyst outlooks, nice fundamentals with room for growth, ownership by “the smartest guys in the room” — and hefty dividends. First up is Starwood Property Trust (STWD), the nation’s largest commercial-property mortgage REIT. Northstar Realty Finance (NRF) is another of my favorite REITs, as I’ve mentioned before. NRF is a commercial REIT, like STWD, focusing mainly on hotels.
