Income investors love real estate investment trusts (REITs) because of the high dividend yields they offer. And most REITs now have higher than normal yields because of the rising interest rates the Federal Reserve has initiated this year to combat inflation and the subsequent price declines of the entire REIT sector as a result.

But investors need to make sure that the higher yields are well covered by the REIT’s quarterly funds from operations (FFO) so that the same or better dividend can continue to be paid into the future. If the quarterly FFO cannot support the dividend, the company begins to bleed cash and may have to cut the dividend going forward.

Here are three REITs with dividend yields above 8% and a look at each company’s ability to continue paying out those dividend yields going forward.

Omega Healthcare Investors Inc. (NYSE: OHI) is a Hunt Valley, Maryland-based healthcare REIT that owns, leases and operates 63 skilled nursing and assisted living facilities in both the U.S. and U.K. All leases are triple net.

Through 2021, Omega Healthcare Investors had given its investors a 214.2% total return over a 10-year period. The 52-week price range is $24.28 to $33.71.

Omega Healthcare Investors pays an annual dividend of $2.68, for a generous yield of 9.03%. Over the past five years the dividend has been stable but has only grown by 3%. Second-quarter funds from operations (FFO) was only $2.48, so caution is advised because the current dividend is not being covered by FFO at this point. The next earnings report is still a month away.

One Liberty Properties Inc. (NYSE: OLP) is a Great Neck, New York-based diversified REIT that owns and manages retail, office and industrial properties under long-term triple net leases.

The annual dividend of $1.80 currently yields 8.5%, more than 1% above its five-year average. Over the past five years the quarterly dividend of 45 cents has not grown at all but has been stable with no cuts or eliminations.

Second-quarter FFO was 49 cents, which missed Wall Street’s estimate by a penny but was also a penny higher than the year-ago quarter. The dividend was covered but not by much.

Piedmont Office Realty Trust Inc. (NYSE: PDM) is an Atlanta-based office REIT that purchases and leases Class A offices in core markets across the Eastern and Southeastern U.S. Piedmont Office Realty Trust owns over $5 billion worth of assets.

Piedmont Office Realty Trust pays an annual dividend of 84 cents presently yielding 8.4%, well above its five-year average of 4.79%. The dividend has been stable over the past five years but has not grown at all.

Second-quarter FFO came in at 50 cents, so the dividend is well-covered. Although the dividend is long overdue to be raised, Piedmont probably won’t do so with the yield at such high levels. The 52-week range is $9.89 to $19.84, and the low was reached in its last trading session.

While Piedmont Office Realty Trust looks like the proverbial falling knife on the charts, when the price begins to stabilize, the inflated yield and fairly safe dividend could make this stock a good one to own for income-oriented investors.

REITs Versus Bonds As Yield Investments

Investors who are seeking the highest — but safest — yields possible eventually compare real estate investment trusts (REITs) with bonds. This is especially true for retirees who want to make the most of their retirement funds. They want the highest yields possible, but they don’t want to risk their principal. In order to compare REITs with bonds, take a look at the breakdown of these two asset types: REITs Equity investment in a wide-ranging portfolio of properties or mortgages Dividends pay qu


3 REITs With 10%+ Dividends Priced Under $20 Per Share

Income investors sometimes look for higher-dividend yields on low-priced stocks. But buying stocks below $10 can be a high-risk venture as these stocks are usually cheap for good reasons. Therefore, it is usually better to purchase stocks above $10. Funds from operation (FFO) is the best measure of operating performance because it is the cash flow used for dividend payouts. Dividends well covered by the FFO will usually be safer from cuts. Here are three real estate investment trust (REIT) stock


3 Mortgage REITs With The Highest Dividends

Mortgage real estate investment trusts (REITs( are companies that loan money on income-producing properties using mortgage-backed securities (MBS) or borrowing funds to originate their own mortgages. The spread between borrowing costs and lending rates is what brings them profits. But rising interest rates deplete the spreads they make between what they borrow and what they lend. Many income investors have remained on the sidelines as prices of mortgage REITs (mREITs) have been decimated by 40%


REITs Await Consumer Price Index Report Coming On Oct. 13

The release on Oct. 13 of the consumer price index report (CPI) from the U. S. Bureau of Labor Statistics is a big deal for real estate investment trusts (REITs). That’s because of how interest-rate-sensitive most of them are. If the CPI shows greater inflation than expected, the Federal Reserve is likely to hike rates more dramatically. Real estate investment trusts suffer when that happens. There might be a little up and down in REIT prices until Oct. 13, but they’re likely to move once the in


3 Residential REITs With The Highest Upside, According To Analysts

Analysts’ opinions are quite important when it comes to stock prices. An upgrade or downgrade can quickly move a stock’s price and lift or lower an analyst’s target price. The target price can also guide investors as to the potential long-term appreciation or depreciation of a stock. But the best analysts are only right about 50% of the time. And what does an investor do when the same analyst is the most optimistic or pessimistic among fellow analysts about several stocks in a particular sector?

Consumer prices in Brazil down for the third month on lower fuel costs

Brazil’s consumer prices were in deflationary territory for the third month in a row in September, data from government statistics agency IBGE showed on Tuesday, still benefiting from major tax cuts on fuels and electricity ahead of a presidential election runoff. The benchmark IPCA index fell 0.29% last month, IBGE said, a smaller drop than the 0.34% forecast by economists polled by Reuters and slowing down from the 0.36% fall seen in the previous month. The consumer price drops came on the back of an aggressive monetary tightening cycle by the country’s central bank and state tax cuts aimed at lowering high energy prices, which had been hurting President Jair Bolsonaro’s popularity as he runs for re-election.
