Analysts at odds! over mREITs
Financial analysts have been busy noting the underperformance of mREITs lately, especially since the Fed dropped the QE3 taper bombshell almost two weeks ago -- immediately igniting fears of rising interest rates, which would decrease the value of the trusts' legacy assets, thus dinging book values. The pain hasn't been limited to the stocks mentioned above, as CYS Investments (NYSE: CYS ) , and even hybrids like Invesco (NYSE: IVR ) , have been on a roller-coaster ride ever since.

This constant battering of mREITs is understandable, of course, as investors used to seeing big dividends from this sector worry about more cuts to those juicy payouts. Last week, fellow ARM-buyer CYS (NYSE: CYS ) started another upset for mREITs when it also reported a decrease in book value from last quarter of nearly 19%.

For these mREITS, the market has ignored the rebounding real estate market, the explicit backing ofFannie Mae (NASDAQOTCBB: FNMA ) andFreddie Mac (NASDAQOTCBB: FMCC ) by the U.S. government, strong performances from mortgage originators this year, and the impressive dividends offered by leading companies likeAmerican Capital Agency (NASDAQ: AGNC ) , CYS Investments (NYSE: CYS ) , and Hatteras Financial (NYSE: HTSI ) .

The preferred market won't get you yields on what the mREIT preferreds offer, but I can guarantee you that investors will be able to relax knowing that they don't have to worry about volatility. This bring me CYS Investments (CYS).
