PowerShares Active U.S. Real Estate Fund

PowerShares18530-Day SEC Yield: 3.1%
Expense Ratio: 0.8%

Helping to round out our diversification is an investment in the PowerShares Active U.S. Real Estate Fund (PSR), which invests in equity real estate investment trusts — tax-advantaged companies that must distribute at least 90% of their income to shareholders.

The $33 billion fund holds REITs across a nice spectrum of businesses. For instance, American Tower (AMT) holds cell phone tower assets, Public Storage (PSA) specializes in self-storage facilities, and Weyerhaeuser (WY) holds timber acreage.

PSR’s performance has been good, though not spectacular, averaging a 12% total return in the past three years, though a decent chunk recently has been torn away amid a bad month for most real estate and housing-related investments.

PowerShares Active U.S. Real Estate distributes quarterly.
