3 Highest Dividend Paying Mortgage Stocks

The mortgage investment industry is a very complex looking investment field. Many people lost huge amounts of money during the financial crises if they were invested in this area. But the industry is also liquid for traders and has some of the best-yielding stocks on the market. The mortgage industry is small but is still one of the highest dividend paying industries within the financial sector.

The average industry yield amounts to 4.66 percent and the P/E ratio is at 15.10. With a recovering house market, mortgage firms see improvements of their accounted assets. Everything goes slowly but I believe that the turnaround is definitely done.

Twelve listed mortgage firms pay dividends to investors. Five of them have an actual dividend yield of more than 10 percent and 10 are currently recommended to buy. Most stocks from the results are lower capitalized. Its very risky to put money into those stocks. Linked is a list of the 12 highest dividend paying stocks from the mortgage industry.
