Dividends4Life: Retirement Investing 2016: 3 Stocks to Put on Your Radar

I believe that real estate investment trusts (REITs) belong in the portfolios of everyone who is investing for retirement. Not only do these stocks tend to pay high dividends, but they also have strong potential for market-beating growth. If you invest in solid REITs with smart business models, you can limit your downside risk during recessions and market crashes. With that in mind, here are three excellent REITs that you should put on your retirement radar.

Most Americans know of Public Storage (NYSE: PSA) from its more than 2,200 storage facilities, but many don't realize what an attractive business self-storage is. As people accumulate more "stuff," they need places to put it. Realty Income (O): The best way to invest in retail. You may be thinking something along the lines of "isn't retail risky?" However, Realty Income (NYSE: O ) is different because of the type of retail properties the company invests in. Formerly known as Health Care REIT, Welltower (NYSE: HCN ) is the largest REIT specializing in healthcare properties. The majority of the company's properties are senior housing, long-term care, and outpatient medical facilities.

    All great names. I personally am only invested in the health REITs but have considered other REITs. For now the focus will remain on my current holdings but PSA does look interesting. Thanks for sharing. Long HCP, HCN, VTR, CCP
