Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) have always been one of my favorite types of investment. Very few stocks offer the same share appreciation and dividend payments as REITs.
Take the Vanguard Real Estate ETF (NYSE: VNQ), for example. In 2019, VNQ popped more than 32%. It also paid shareholders a 3.58% yield. Don't forget, that's for an ETF. Picking out the individual REITs poised to break out will yield even higher returns.
And in 2020, outperforming REITs have become even more important. Especially for income investors.
