Dividends4Life: 2 Stocks to Buy With Dividends Yielding More Than 5%

Stocks with high dividend yields can be great, but if a stock has a high dividend yield and also has lots of long-term growth potential and relatively low risk, that's the trifecta. One area of the market where you can find stocks that meet these criteria is in the real estate sector. With that in mind, here are three real estate investment trusts, or REITs, that could be worth a closer look right now.

Hotel REITs tend to be some of the highest-yielding REITs in the sector, and a big reason is that they are more vulnerable to recessions than most types of commercial properties. However, Hospitality Properties Trust (NASDAQ:HPT) isn't just a hotel REIT -- the company also has a large portfolio of interstate travel centers. My personal favorite healthcare REIT is HCP (NYSE:HCP). HCP is one of the largest healthcare REITs in the industry, but unlike the other big players, the company isn't highly levered to a single type of property. Instead, HCP's portfolio is divided rather evenly between senior housing, medical offices, and life science properties.
