Mortgage REITs are one of the highest-yielding sectors of the market, and understandably draw a lot of dividend investor interest. BUT it’s also the hardest sector to do well in over the long-term, due to both the complexity of these companies balance sheets, and the extremely challenging interest rate environment. Find out what you need to know about this sector, both in terms of risk, potential rewards, as well as three solid mREITs that are worth owning today.
I'm an Army veteran and former energy dividend writer for The Motley Fool. I currently write for both Seeking Alpha, Simply Safe Dividends, Investorplace.com, and TheStreet.com. My goal is to help all people learn how to harness the awesome power of dividend growth investing to achieve their financial dreams, and enrich their lives. With 20 years of investing experience, I've learned what works and more importantly, what doesn't, when it comes to building long-term wealth and income streams. I'm currently on an epic quest to build a broadly diversified, high-quality, high-yield dividend growth portfolio that: 1. Pays a 4% to 5% yield 2. Offers 9% to 10% annual dividend growth 3. Pays dividends AT LEAST on a weekly, but preferably, daily basis
