Redwood Trust (RWT) - Yield Tree to the Sky!
You know Money Vikings like passive income machines. I am adding to my existing Redwood Trust (RWT) holdings for this very reason. This is a REIT that provides an amazing approx. 5-6% yield. Where else will you get regular 5-6% income distributions just for holding shares? This is a mortgage REIT that has climbed steadily from its pandemic lows that shocked the system.
There is also the potential for capital appreciation as the stock price is still off it's pre-pandemic high. They most recently announced a 13% increase to their quarterly dividend. I like my investments to grow nice, tall and strong, just like those majestic redwoods. Enter Redwood Trust.
100 shares = about $1,200, each 100 share lot will produce $72 in annual dividend income.
