Real estate investment trusts (REITs) hold a natural attraction for income investors: REITs are required to pay out most of their taxable income directly to shareholders. Most of them do that on a quarterly basis, but some pay monthly, which many income investors may find even more attractive, perhaps especially those of us who are at the Social Security stage of life.
For most of 2020, the mortgage real estate investment trust (REIT) sector followed the arc of a turnaround story. AGNC Investment (NASDAQ: AGNC) navigated the crisis better than most of its peers, and it has completed its turnaround. Mortgage REITs have a different sort of business model than a typical REIT.
Most investors look to mortgage REITs (mREITs) for their higher rate of return when compared to other real estate investment trusts (REIT) that own and manage physical real estate. Let's take a closer look at the company today and where AGNC Investment Corporation could be in three years. Unlike other mREITs, AGNC Investment Corp doesn't originate mortgages.
