MFA Financial (NYSE:MFA) is one of those companies which came through the storm and has continued to create value for shareholders via its high-yield dividends on both its common and preferred shares. MFA operates as an internally managed real estate investment trust (REIT) in the US. Unlike other real estate trusts, which own physical assets, such as shopping centers, healthcare facilities or office buildings, mREITs such as MFA don't usually invest in physical assets. Instead, MFA invests in residential mortgage assets, including agency and non-agency mortgage-backed securities (MBS), residential whole loans and credit risk transfer securities.
