Earlier this year, rhoff367 succinctly summed up the Resource Capital bull case: "Great dividends, moderate growth."
In fact, Resource Capital currently boasts a particularly juicy dividend yield of 15.5%. That's even higher than that of double-digit-yielding rivals Annaly (13.8%), Capstead (12.3%), and Walter Investment (11.4%).
CAPS member ParisHgtsBruce expands on the income opportunity:
The wildly forecast downturn in commercial real estate did not materialize. The housing market seems to be leveling off and will most likely continue along a rocky bottom. Although the fed has talked and push rates down, the market seems to have calmed and may be stabilizing at normal levels. Solid companies not overly involved in the housing sector should continue to perform well and provide good dividends.
