Gas station and convenience store real estate investment trust Getty Realty has sped past the woes of earlier this decade, and is now beating consensus estimates on funds from operations and revenues.
REIT investors are typically attracted by dividends, and GTY has delivered a 12.3% compound annual dividend growth rate over the past four years.
Smaller stocks had outperformed large-caps for much of 2018, but now find themselves down for the year to date after a tough couple months.
These picks boast current dividend yields of up to 8%, and are also extremely likely to soon announce a payout hike to their shareholders.
Top picks offer a piece of warehouses, gas stations, premium hotels and Gotham and West Coast real estate.
One of the few REIT sectors that is actually in positive territory for the year is timber land.
We'll see how they behave the rest of the year as the Fed likely raises interest rates two or three more times in 2018.
The REIT that owns hundreds of gasoline stations has been on an acquisition spree of late.
Farmland Partners, Getty Realty, CoreCivic and Corning are a diverse bunch offering nice payouts and appreciation potential.
These real estate investment trusts present opportunistic situations that go beyond their dividends.
With the market seeming to be in an everlasting move up, examine what is selling into strength.
I've been following the Getty saga for months now, but finally took a small initial position.
