The Safest 8% Yield in the Stock Market?

Posted by D4L | Friday, December 22, 2017 | | 0 comments »

In the investing world, higher returns always come with higher risk. That’s why even though there are plenty of double-digit yielders trading in the stock market, very few of them deserves the attention of risk-averse income investors. Today, though, we are going to take a look at something special: a company offering an eight-percent yield with its payout almost carved in stone.

I’m talking about Select Income REIT (NASDAQ:SIR), a real estate investment trust (REIT) headquartered in Newton, Massachusetts. Like most REITs, Select Income operates like a giant landlord. It owns 366 buildings, leasable land parcels, and easements totaling 45.5-million square feet. These properties are diversified across 36 states. (Source: “Investor Presentation,” Select Income REIT, last accessed November 29, 2017.) As of September 30, 2017, 96.2% of Select Income’s total rentable square feet is leased. Thanks to this high occupancy rate, the company is able to generate a sizable stream of rental income.
