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. From master limited partnerships (MLPs) to utilities, those asset classes that throw off plenty of yield have surged on the wave of good news and a more dovish Federal Reserve.

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. However, the bad news is based on historical data, as much of their gains going forward will be thanks to their yields. For some investors, that may dampen the appeal of the sector.
