High Yielding REITs Performing Well in 2012 Despite Current Economic Climate

The Paragon Report Provides Stock Research on Invesco Mortgage Capital and Hatteras Financial

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Aug 14, 2012) - High yielding Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) have performed well in the current economic climate. REITs are a popular play in the current economy due to their steady dividends. REITs can avoid corporate income tax, provided they invest in real estate-related assets and pay out at least 90 percent of their income in dividends to investors, rather than reinvesting in their business. The Paragon Report examines investing opportunities in diversified REITs and provides equity research on Invesco Mortgage Capital Inc. (NYSE: IVR) and Hatteras Financial Corp. (NYSE: HTS).

The Mortgage REIT market has been boosted by record low interest rates, and there have been talks from the Federal Reserve to continue to keep interest rates at these low levels beyond 2014. With the current problems with Europe's economy the most likely response would be for governments to cut interest rates further or purchase assets.

"Even if the United States falls into a double-dip recession or has a contagion, that would basically insure our benefit as those rates extend even further," said Dynex Capital Inc. Chairman and CEO Thomas Akin.
