My sister questioned why would someone who is not retired, and don't need income, investing in REIT. You don't need the income!!

I gave an example of me buying CTRE in 2015 for $12.08, which now has a cost basis of $11.58, has effective dividend yield of 9.16%, and I will be doing 10% on that investment just from dividend alone and any price appreciation even $1 or $2 per year can easily push my annual return over 10%.

Imagine you can 10%+ with relative stability. Yet she is not convinced. But she being my sister, so she is like "I am not convinced, but going to trust you, tell me some REIT's to buy...." LOL
