The Top 3 REITs Now For Safety and Yield

As inflation has surged to a 40-year high this year, investors are struggling to protect the real value of their portfolios from eroding.

REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts) are great candidates for the portfolios of income investors, particularly in the current investing environment.

First of all, they can offset inflation, at least in part, by raising their rental rates. In addition, while the S&P 500 is offering an average dividend yield of 1.4%, many REITs are offering dividend yields above 5%.

In this story, we will discuss the prospects of three REITs that offer attractive dividends with a wide margin of safety.
