So far, many of the most read posts on this website have been my lists of real estate investment trusts (REITs), especially my post this time least year about the top 200 US real estate investment trusts by market cap. As mentioned, US REITs and REIT funds tend to be especially well suited to IRA, 401k, 529, and HSA accounts because REIT dividends are generally not qualified dividends, and so best collected in a tax-deferred account.
Here I decided to post a more refined list high dividend yield REITs, where I have also screened for those that have historically seen positive growth in their dividends, cash flows, and book value per share. As always, these lists are for informational purposes only, and GFM and GFM’s clients may hold positions in securities listed or mentioned in these posts.
