Belly Up To The Bar - The Top 20 Highest-Yielding eREIT Preferred

Folks often ask me to do one of my "no fluff" notes where I compile data on sectors and give them the results without a lot of opinion or ancillary word count. It has been a while since I have done a "no fluff, all stuff" note, but I was always taught to give the people what they want (within reason), so here we are.
Given the change in expectations regarding rates (well, change for a lot of folks - I never expected much in the way of higher rates and have said as much), folks are once again on the hunt for yield. After nearly a decade of dismally low rates and the cash flow that is derived from rates, we find ourselves still mired in rates that do not necessarily accommodate investors looking for income (you know, to afford those pesky little wants like food, shelter and clothing - and the occasional trip to Europe to gaze at the wonders socialism has brought to that continent). In order to help foster ideas and "I'll have to look at that" lists, I give you the no fluff top 20 highest-yielding equity REITs (heretofore called the NFTT).
Belly up to the income bar and take a look at the menu. Note that the calorie count (risk) of the menu is high, which means that it might taste good but that doesn't mean it's good for you.
