For those with a bit more tolerance for risk here is where you look for current yields of preferred stocks in the 7-10% range.
Preferred stocks of mortgage REITs. This listing is under the “Preferreds” heading above.
mREITS are probably not for everyone–I do not own any residential mREIT preferred right now (but do own a couple of the more commercial REIT preferreds right now–Ready Capital (RC) and Arbor Realty (ABR).
I plan to try to ‘bone up’ on the residential REITs in the next couple weeks to see if I can gain enough understanding of them to feel comfortable taking some positions in these high yielders.
