Below are the three companies in the Industrial REITs industry with the highest forward earnings yields. Using projected earnings for the current fiscal year, the forward earnings yield is useful to compare a stock's return vs. owning a similar stock or other yield assets (e.g. bonds). Generally, the higher the earnings yield, the more undervalued the stock.

DuPont Fabros Technology (NYSE:DFT) is highest with forward earnings yield of 3.0%. DuPont Fabros Technology Inc. is a real estate investment trust and owner, developer, operator and manager of wholesale data centers. The Company's data centers are used primarily by national and international technology companies to house, power and cool the computer servers that support many of their most critical business processes.

DuPont Fabros Technology share prices have moved between a 52-week high of $29.00 and a 52-week low of $19.33 and are now trading 21% above that low price at $23.38 per share. Over the last five market days, the 200-day moving average (MA) has remained constant while the 50-day MA has declined 0.4%.

EastGroup Properties (NYSE:EGP) is next with forward earnings yield of 2.6%.

Finishing up the top three is AMB Property (NYSE:AMB), with forward earnings yield of 0.5%.
