Most investors know about tech stocks that have harnessed the cloud for growth, such as Salesforce.com (CRM), Adobe Systems (ADBE) and Amazon.com (AMZN).But are you familiar with the cloud's landlords?"Cloud czars" don't operate entirely on their own. There's a huge industry in connecting these clouds to each other, and to large and small customers alike. It requires cell towers, data centers and other communications technology.A number of real estate investment trusts (REITs) specialize in properties and other assets that ensure your tablet can stream Netflix (NFLX) content and that your company's data is secured in the cloud. As a reminder: REITs are a special type of business structure - one that requires at least 90% of taxable income be paid out to shareholders as dividends, in exchange for generous tax benefits.Many of these stocks have risen by leaps and bounds in 2019, though they're getting expensive as a result. Still, they sit smack-dab in the middle of a growth industry, and some of them remain valuable as takeover targets. Private equity firms EQT Partners and Digital Colony Partners bought fiber network owner Zayo Group for $8 billion in May. And in October, Digital Realty Trust (DLR) bought European data center giant Interxion (INXN) for $8.4 billion.Here are five REITs that can help you squeeze dividends out of the cloud. If you're looking for a broad-based play on the industry, the Pacer Benchmark Data & Infrastructure Real Estate ETF (SRVR) invests in 20 such companies. However, these five holdings stand out among the rest. SEE ALSO: 20 Dividend Stocks to Fund 20 Years of Retirement

5G is here. If you don't know what that is yet, it's the next generation of wireless protocols. And if it hasn't already, it's going to change your life … dramatically. Think about the difference between the world before the internet and after. Or the difference between America now and before we had electricity. Or even the difference between what life was like before the steam engine and today.Source: Shutterstock Some analysts have referred to the recent arrival of 5G as the "next industrial revolution." In fact, it'll eventually change everything from how we do business to how we drive our cars to how we engage with our families in our own homes. Most importantly, however, 5G will change the way we live in cities and towns. That's because with its arrival comes the arrival of "smart cities."Smart cities are cities that update themselves in real time. Think of traffic lights that predict how many cars are coming and regulate themselves accordingly. Or streetlights that know if people are on the sidewalk and can turn on and off as needed. Smart cities might even be able to do something about finding parking spaces for everybody!InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsRegardless of the sci-fi dreams 5G and smart cities can bring, it's all coming soon.

As cities get smart, AMT is one organization everybody should be looking at to lead the way.Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ): The real key to smart cities, however, are the networks that 5G signals will be traveling over. That's where Verizon Communications comes in.Verizon has one of the largest cellular networks in the United States. And it's currently rolling out 5G to municipalities. Included in Verizon's smart cities already are stoplight and other streetlight sensors from Boston to San Diego. And those cities and devices are only going to grow in the years to come. 5G and Smart Cities: A $53 Trillion OpportunityAll in all, yesterday's science fiction is today's reality.
