REITs: Dividends Will Matter More Going Forward

Aaron Levitt May 09, 2019


When it comes to the markets, last year’s losers are often this year’s biggest winners. That’s been the case for a variety of high-yielding asset classes over the course of 2019.

This includes income stalwarts like real estate investment trusts (REITs).

As a whole, REITs have been on a tear this year and have been one of the best performers out of any sector. That’s good news.
