The recent go it on dividends alone thread got me looking at Dividend paying ETF's. I have no REITS and this puppy has a yield over 8% and seems to be in a good position from what I have found with Google. I am looking to put this 100% in a small ROTH that is about 4% of our total portfolio. Anyone recommendations or better ideas would be appreciated.

Great management team, rock solid monthly dividend. Lots of growth prospects. Unlike most REITs that selling their assets, since 2008, Whitestone actually buys assets in basement bargain prices. They just bought a commercial center for $3M, at this price it's like getting the center for free, with enough cash in hands to keep on purchasing. The stock is simply hidden from Wall Street. I expect this to be a 10-bagger once it is discovered and volumes will ramp up.
