EPR Properties (EPR) is a real estate investment trust (REIT) that currently pays a 6.29 percent dividend yield and is enjoying its fifth straight year of rising dividends. EPR develops, owns, leases and finances properties in the United States and Canada that are involved in entertainment, education and recreation. The company’s real estate portfolio recently consisted of 113 megaplex theatres, various restaurants, retail and 38 public charter schools, along with properties under construction. Best of all, you still can take advantage of EPR’s 6.29% yield as the company’s next ex-dividend date is March 31, 2014, for dividends paid April 15, 2014. Now that’s entertainment.
