  • mREITs Are The True Dividend Champions, And Safer Than You May Think
    Mar. 6, 2014 NLY 175 Comments

    Summary

    • Over the last 17 years, investing in mREITs like NLY or AGNC has bought more dividend income than other dividend contenders, like O, JNJ, KO, or PTTRX.
    • Although annual incomes from NLY and AGNC bounce around a lot, they do so at levels always higher than other contenders for the dividend championship.
    • For the long-term buy-and-hold investor, NLY and AGNC provide consistent high, higher, and highest income. Like bonds, price volatility is secondary if you don't sell.
