3 Best REIT Stocks with High Dividend Yields to Buy

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, November 09, 2016 | | 0 comments »

Real estate investment trust (REIT) stocks are among the highest yielding dividend stocks because REITs are required to pay out at least 90% of their income as dividends in order to qualify for preferential tax treatment. REITs own various types of real estate, which they lease to others primarily for use in their operations or for storage. REIT stocks have been among the top performing stocks in the market over the last year or so, propelled in part by low interest rates. Such an environment lowers companies' borrowing costs, and results in more money pouring into dividend-paying stocks from income-seeking investors in search of solid yields.

With modest rate hikes likely looming on the horizon, investors need to be more discriminating when selecting REIT stocks, most of which have recently pulled back somewhat. So which REIT stocks are the best buys now? Here are three top ones to consider: Realty Income Corp. (NYSE:O), Welltower (NYSE:HCN) and Iron Mountain (NYSE:IRM).
