As S&P Capital IQ notes, IYR offers broader exposure to the REIT space with four REIT sub-segments – specialty, retail, industrial and residential – each receiving double-digit allocations in the fund. IYR’s trailing 12-month yield is inline with that of REZ.

IYR’s top-10 holdings, several of which garner high STAR rankings from S&P Capital IQ, include Simon Property Group (NYSE: SPG), American Tower (NYSE: AMT) and Public Storage (NYSE: PSA).
