Better Buy: AGNC Investment or W. P. Carey?

Better Buy: AGNC Investment or W. P. Carey?

Over the past three years, AGNC's yield has been materially higher than what you would have received from investing in W. P. Carey. For most of the time, the comparison isn't even close, with W. P. Carey's dividend yield hovering around 6% the entire time and AGNC's yield peaking at more than triple that level. Investors comparing these two REITs on yield alone would have picked AGNC every day of the trading week.
