On his Wednesday episode of Mad Money TV, Jim Cramer said that he likes commercial real estate investment trusts [REITs] as opposed to residential REITs.

There are several types of commercial REITs, including those that invest in office buildings, those that are retail oriented including shopping centers, and the industrial REITs, which can include warehouse, manufacturing, and mini-storage properties. There are also diversified REITs which invest in any or all of the above in addition to apartment buildings. Of course, one of the prime features of investing in commercial REITs is the high yield. The following is a list of commercial REITs with yields above five percent:
