REITS on The Street

June 12, 2015

In today’s WSJ, (6/10/2015) many large Real Estate Investment Trusts are reducing the pay that top executives are receiving due to shareholder concerns.  Although REITS in general gave a very high return last year, outperforming the S&P 500, investors still are pressuring senior executives to reduce their compensation of salary and bonuses.  This continues to look like good news for the REIT industry.  Not only are REITs required to pay at least 90% of taxable income as dividends, but with higher performances than the S&P 500, and lower compensations, I expect another good year for this lesser known investment vehicle.
