Dividends4Life: 7 REITs to Buy Today for Growing Dividends

The specter of rising interest rates has finally coming to a head for a variety of high-yielding asset classes. Among the victims? Master limited partnerships (MLPs), plain ol’ utility stocks … and especially hit hard have been real estate investment trusts (REITs). Last month, as the Federal Reserve toyed with raising rates, the FTSE NAREIT all-REITs Index sharply fell 4.71%, more than knocking down the prior quarter’s 4.05% gains. But here’s the thing: REITs can do OK in rising-rate environments. Really.

Translation? The current selloff (as well as the one we’ll see when the Fed actually does raise rates) should be used as buying opportunities by anyone looking for suddenly cheaper sources of income. With that in mind, here are seven REITs to buy soon: Health Care REIT, Inc. (HCN), Realty Income Corp (O), Iron Mountain Inc (IRM), UDR, Inc. (UDR), CBL & Associates Properties, Inc. (CBL), Boston Properties, Inc. (BXP) and Vanguard REIT Index Fund (VNQ).
