Are mortgage backed securities safe now

Hi everyone,

Reits investing in mortgage backed securities. Like armour and agnc. They pay a hefty dividend. But I wonder whether they are safe. Obviously they caused the 2008 financial crisis. But I like to think they are a lot more safe now. Do you think they are a good investment?

According to this graph and research, you should avoid them for now. They tend to underperform pretty bad in times of inflation.

I like VICI properties a lot because they have inflation proof contracts. Dividend of 5% and undervaluation compared to peers.
