5 REITs Sending Buy Signals in March

Stocks in this article: GGPHSTOFCPEIRPAI

BALTIMORE ( Stockpickr) -- How's your real estate portfolio been faring?

The last few years have been a stellar time to own real estate investment trusts, better known as REITs. But this may just be the beginning of good times for REIT investors.

While the S&P 500 has staged impressive performance in the last year, rallying more than 13.5% in the trailing 12 months, REITs have managed to even overshadow those gains; as a group, REITs have climbed a full 21.9% in that last year. From a relative strength standpoint, that's a very auspicious sign for the rest of 2013.

Better yet, with traditionally high dividend payouts, REITs offer an extra shot in the arm for investment returns. That helps this class of stocks avoid more downside than the real estate market in general.

As you might expect, most REITs have been climbing higher of late. But some are looking more bullish than others -- we're taking a closer technical look at five of them today.
