    This article just showed up on Yahoo

    This article is a bit misleading.

    Reit dividends is payed from TAXABLE INCOME.

    Their 2.5 Billion in cash on hand is irreverent to their dividend.
    I don't know anyone who uses cash flow either to rate a REIT.

    "American Capital is my favorite of this high-yielding group. Although expectations for earnings growth are modest at only 2% a year, the company has more than $2.5 billion of cash on hand and strong cash flow exceeding $500 million a quarter -- more than enough for the $384 million quarterly dividend."
