    well the good thing about putting ~10% in is the most you can lose is ~10%.

    maybe REIT's do better than that, who knows, that's the hustle part, that's up to you. sometimes you got to pull the cord before you hit the ground and it goes to zero, sometimes you catch a draft and hit it bigtime.

    that's what makes it interesting. me? i'm buying anything to do with trains, moons (or luna in the name), and dirt. i think that strategery is gonna pay off.

    Yes, my head gets in the way alla time, need to just turn it loose and go with the intuition now and then. but i avoided the downdraft of 08, so reading and thinking helped me out there.

    but then i missed the updrafts after that too. got to find the balance, its in there somewhere. when I start reading about insurance companies going bust on commercial loan rollover defaults and bankruptsies, that will be when I think/feel time for reits for me, ymmv.

    Well, evidently I am late for the party again-i kept reading how commercial loans would be coming due for rollover bigtime this year and next, and would tank big time. was even waiting for financial magazine covers on the subject. looks like QE2 threw that timing off, things are recovering-until they dont. Time to buy REITs if you havent.

    REITs also pay great dividends right now. As I deploy my former TSP account into my new IRA it has been hard not to buy too many of them!

    Some of those REITs can make a great addition to a RothIRA since the high dividend payouts aren't subject to tax, if you're looking for someway to boost the cash funds in your account (perhaps for other stock/equity purchases).

    Changing interest environment- Impact on REITS

    http://money.msn.com/business-news/a...18&id=13647560

    "Economists think the Fed will start raising rates later this year or early next year. Higher rates would reduce borrowing. Even though the bond-buying program is scheduled to end in June, the Fed said it's continuing a separate support program. It is reinvesting about $17 billion a month in proceeds from its portfolio of mortgage securities to buy Treasury debt. That should help keep rates low on mortgages and other consumer loans. "

    Bernanke Helps Boost REIT Dividend Expectations
    June 14, 2011 8:16 AM ET.

    Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) have some of the highest yields on Wall Street. As a REIT, these companies are typically not taxed on their income but are required to pay out 90 percent of their taxable income in dividends. While this makes dividend payments more volatile, analysts argue that REITs' profits should remain stable given the current economic conditions. The Bedford Report examines the outlook for diversified REITs and provides equity research on American Capital Agency Corporation (NASDAQ: AGNC) and Annaly Capital Management, Inc. (NYSE: NLY). Access to the full company reports can be found at:

    Just a thought, Feds promise to keep interest rates ultra low for the next two years should keep REITS profits strong. Interest rates are one of the major factors to watch with REITS. JMHO

    I hope so as CIM and O have cost me a pretty penny to date. At least I am getting dividends and with O giving me some more next Tuesday, those shares will definately be at a low price... I bailed on NLY basically breaking even so REITS haven't done much for me in the last 5 months...
