Dividends4Life: 3 REITs to Buy for Substantial Dividend Yields

3 REITs to Buy for Substantial Dividend Yields

Posted by D4L | Saturday, October 07, 2017 | 1 comments »

Put simply, REITs come in many different shapes and sizes. This allows investors to gain exposure to specific sectors and industries. In order to qualify as a REIT, the company has to pay out 90% or more of its taxable income as a dividend. One more key attribute to REITs? They’re different. Often times, they can buck stock market trends. As with everything, this can be both good and bad. Perhaps some REITs don’t participate as much during bull market runs. However, on bad days, these stocks can stay afloat. That’s the kind of stability I like to see from my REIT holdings — a rare piece of green in my portfolio amidst a sea of red. Let’s take a look at our list of three REITs to buy...

Omega Healthcare Investors Inc (NYSE:OHI) is a name many investors may glance over. With its near-8% yield, OHI stock is bound to catch the eye of a few income-hungry investors. Ventas, Inc. (NYSE:VTR) is another healthcare REIT. While OHI is considered a solid pick, many consider Ventas the blue-chip of healthcare REITs. CyrusOne Inc (NASDAQ:CONE) has been on fire this year. Those waiting for the pullback have not been satisfied as CONE stock continues to soar, up 45% on the year. As a result, it yields just 2.6%.
