Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) come in all shapes and sizes. We have comprised a list of almost 150 REITs each of which yields 2% or more. REITs are not traditional companies and should be evaluated differently than a regular stock that pays dividends. These trusts are required to payout 90% of their income to shareholders. Also, they are treated differently for tax purposes. Consult a tax professional before investing in these types of companies.
Our REIT list is now hosted by Dividend Stocks Online. View their list of over 200 high yield REITS.
