In a low interest rate environment investors have flocked to the high yielding dividend of REITs, as many companies offer yields in excess of 10 percent. REITs are not taxed at the corporate level but in return are required to distribute at least 90% of their taxable income as dividends to investors. A steadily improving U.S. housing market helped boost investors' appetite for REITs. The Dow Jones Equity All REIT Index, which tracks the performance of all the publicly traded U.S. REITs, gained nearly 20 percent in 2012, making it the fourth consecutive year REITs have bested the broader Standard & Poor's 500 Index.
"Despite vacillation in stock markets, investors haven't lost their appetite for a steady diet of real estate," says Jeff Tjornehoj, a Lipper analyst.
