Annaly Capital Management, Inc. (NLY), Capstead Mortgage Corporation (CMO): Five mREITs With Attractive Yields

Page 1 of 2

Mortgage-backed real estate investment trusts [mREITs] usually yield higher compared to other income stocks. This is due to the fact that these companies get a tax shield if their distribution of profits is at least 90%. However, income from dividends is not tax-free. Thus, investors don’t get to fully enjoy the tax-free benefit. The dividend earnings will be treated as income. Nevertheless, they are still better than having no dividend at all.
