In the following video, Motley Fool financial analyst David Hanson takes a question about mortgage real estate investment trusts, or mREITs, from a Fool Facebook follower, who writes, "What is going to happen to the mREITs? Seems like they have taken a plunge. Is this because of politics or the housing sector (or both)? Will they come back? Will they still pay great dividends?"
