7 High-Dividend Stocks in REITs

Posted by D4L | Saturday, May 02, 2015 | | 0 comments »

Real estate investment trusts, or REITs, can be a great source of both income and growth in your portfolio; they can also provide financial protection when times get rough. There are two main types of REITs: those that own property and those that invest in mortgages. Both have their own pros and cons. Mortgage REITs tend to pay high dividend yields but are vulnerable to certain market conditions, such as changing interest rates. Property REITs pay lower dividends but offer greater upside potential as the values of their real estate holdings increase. The latter also tend to be less volatile, since the income they produce is more consistent.

To give you an overview of the various REITs in the market, here is a mix of seven of the better-known REITs that pay strong dividends, as well as some reasons you might want to consider each of them for your own portfolio: Realty Income Corp (O), American Campus Communities, Inc. (ACC), CSG Holding Co., Ltd. (CSG), Annaly Capital Management, Inc. (NLY), PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust (PMT) and Digital Realty Trust, Inc. (DLR).
