IndexIQ, a leading developer of liquid alternative investment solutions, today announced June 2013 income distributions for the IQ US Real Estate Small Cap ETF (NYSE Arca: ROOF). Shareholders of record on June 26, 2013 will receive cash distributions paid on June 28, 2013 of $0.34284 per share.
The yield on the index underlying ROOF (IQ US Real Estate Small Cap Index) is 6.44% as of June 24, 2013.
“Performance among both small-cap and large-cap REITs took a big hit at the start of the financial crisis in 2007, but since 2009, REITs have seen an overall performance resurgence, said Adam Patti, CEO of IndexIQ. “In today’s environment, investors are hungry for income producing assets. With ROOF, ETF investors now have the potential to capture a robust income stream and significant capital appreciation by isolating small cap US real estate exposure; and they can do this in a transparent, liquid way.”
* Patti added, “Investors can use ROOF as a complement to one of the large-cap REIT ETFs in the market given the lack of portfolio overlap, or as a standalone allocation in lieu of large-cap exposure given the potential diversification benefits of small-caps, the higher yield, and the potential for greater capital appreciation in the future, which is typical when comparing small caps to large caps in most sectors. Additionally, as REITs often look to acquisitions for growth, these small cap REITs are well positioned to become acquisition targets for the large REITs.”
