(A Top Pick April 22/15. Up 3.77%.) Hotels in the US. High yield of over 8%. To make the yield safer at the peak, they locked their distribution, putting it into US$’s, so now the payout is about 70%. About 40% of income comes from railroad contracts, so people are a little concerned that lower rail volumes will affect it. However, they do have guaranteed contracts.
