Re: A Personal Note

Ralph:

Sorry to be later than most others to respond to your post, but I've been away from the boards for a while. It would be a real loss for most everyone on this board if you ceased to post your thoughts on REITS. You are the most [more]

Re: Campus Crest just blew up

tjberko:

The only thing I can say is good luck with my CCG Preferreds. I'm happy to be rid of this one at only a small loss. They are the only company to wipe out both the common and preferred dividend since the 2008 credit crisis. [more]

Re: Campus Crest just blew up

Thanks for the heads up. I had already sold my CCG common at a profit when I sold some REITS recently as I indicated earlier. I still had a few hundred shares of the Preferred which I held onto, but sold immediately after I read your post. [more]

It kind of tickles me to look at the recommendation to buy CBL-D, which I'm sure is an excellent one and one that is priced properly in the current market environment. I don't think someone would go too far wrong with [more]

Re: Zombie REITS

Lets face it. Those who purchase non-traded REITS

1.) Had faith in the advisor who sold them and trusted him/her and were misled.

2.) Knew little or nothing about financial markets and were like lambs led to the [more]

Hi!
Frankly, right now I have no plans for the money other than to sit on it for perhaps 6 months or so, or however long it takes for REIT commons and Preferreds to correct. This will happen prior to the actual rate increase [more]

Re: What market sickness hit the REIT's today?

I think what sparked the big downdraft in REITS this past Friday was what was considered a great jobs report. This is what led to fears that there could possibly be an earlier than anticipated rate increase by the Fed. Whether that will [more]
