I've occasionally seen REITs suggested for inclusion in the fixed income portion of a retirement portfolio. I checked Vanguard's REIT index fund and while the dividend is fairly high, it fluctuates widely. Not a very reliable FIXED income. The Fool board on REITs doesn't seem to be active.

Anybody know of a good source on this topic?
