Image shown: Mortgage REITs have held up better than master limited partnerships (MLPs) since mid-2015, but they haven't exactly done well. For income investors, they may be the lesser of the two pain areas, but we're still not really excited about them.

The mortgage REIT space remains inherently risky as it is sensitive to difficult to predict mortgage markets, and many in the group employ significant leverage to augment net interest margins. We prefer more diversified plays on income, and while we dig deep into mREITs in this piece, we think caution is still very much in order.
