Recovering REITs and Desirable Dividends

A strong economy typically means increasing demand for US real estate. Everything from office space to retail stores to hospitals sees increased values and lease rates during bull markets. REITs don’t pay corporate taxes and they must distribute at least 90% of their income as dividends. Commercial REITs averaged 3.07% dividend yields (12-month yield as of 8/30/2013).[1] It all makes for some pretty interesting talk around the water cooler. This motif includes only REITS that need to refinance less than 30% of their debt over the next three years. See more
