Dividends4Life: Digital Realty Trust: Why Income Investors May Want To Consider The 5.7%-Yielding Preferred Shares

Dividend Growth Stocks News

Digital Realty Trust, Inc. (NYSE:DLR.PK) is a fast-growing data center real estate investment trust with both common and preferred shares outstanding. Since the common shares are highly valued based on funds from operations, an investment in the REIT's preferred stock layer makes sense for investors that don't want to risk overpaying for Digital Realty Trust's dividend stream. An investment in Digital Realty Trust's preferred stock layer comes with a safe dividend yield of 5.7 percent.

If you like Digital Realty Trust's business, but are also concerned about the data center REIT's high common stock valuation, you have another option to invest in the company: You can buy Digital Realty Trust's relatively new preferred stock. Specifically, I am referring to Digital Realty Trust's 5.850% Series K Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock (DLR.PK) which has begun trading on the New York Stock Exchange in March.
