    Crappy yield for REIT

    I can't think of one reasonably safe MLP that has a yield over 10%, and that MLP is way more risky than HCN. The really safe MLPs have yields ranging from 5% to 7%, right in line with HCN. The big difference is the after tax yield, which is much better with MLPs than REITs. Check out the Investor Village MLP board for an overview and suggestions for an MLP portfolio.
    For high risk MLPs, I own exploration and production MLPS; LGCY, LINE and EVEP. Less risky are midstream MLPS;
    MWE, NGLS and GEL. Even less risky are pipeline MLPs; ETP, EPD. The safest are long haul interstate pipeline MLPs; BWP and SEP.
