3 REITs to Buy for Substantial Dividend Yields

While the stock doesn’t really get much attention from financial media, the company’s dividend track record is nothing short of impressive.

3 'Strong Buy' Dividend Stocks with Very High Yield
We set out to find stocks that have the double whammy of a high dividend yield and the full support of the Street. We used Nasdaq Smart Portfolio’s powerful stock screener which gives us access to its database of over 5,000 stocks. The screener is a neat source of fresh ideas because you can filter according to a unique range of options that measure market sentiment. Here we set three of the nine filter options- above medium size market cap, very high dividend yield and a Strong Buy analyst consensus rating. This pulled up a list of about 10 stocks from which we selected the following three tickers. Let’s now take a closer look at these intriguing investment opportunities...
