I was looking at REIT's today. I looked at 3. NLY, agnc and CIM. NLY and AGNC are mainly agency mortgage backed REIT's that use leverage. Funny thing is, is that they trade at 81% of book value. So they are historically very cheap historically. That have been cheaper. CIM is mor of a non agency REIT so I THINK it uses less leverage. Not sure about this though. It trades at a higher price to book ratio. Dividend yields of > 12%.
