Mortgage Investment Stocks Offer High Yields

Investors looking for high yields may want to consider specialty finance companies that invest in residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS), residential mortgage loans and real estate-related securities. The primary objective of these companies is to pay dividends with high yields and, secondarily, provide capital appreciation.

Many of these companies operate as real estate investment trusts (REIT), so they are required to pay out 90 percent of their earnings to avoid paying corporate taxes.

These stocks are volatile and some companies have a history of cutting dividends.

Here is a table of 9 high-yield mortgage investment stocks.
