Quick Thought 8-24

As a follow-up to my post yesterday about investing in Real Estate. If you are looking for an alternative to investing into new home builders I think the next best option are high-yeilding REITS.

My favorite in Annaly Capital Management (NLY). Over the past two years this company has stayed in a fairly constant price window (~$17-18), but it also has held pretty consistent dividends. The company currently yields 14.5% annually.

With the feds promising low rates for the next two years I see no reason why NLY would have problems continuing their current dividend levels. This is a great power play for anyone who loves dividends.
