    Monty, BTB Reit should be considered in the Office/Retail sector as it holds only 3 industrial properties according to the current data.
    Thanks for all the work you have put into this series

    Author’s reply » Hi,


    Thanks for your positive feedback and suggestions.


    Although I recognize the validity of recategorizing BTB REIT, it would create "referential integrity" issues between this table and the cross-referenced articles. Therefore, I ask that you accept a few inconsistencies... There are others - another reader had suggested that Medical Facilities Corp not be considered a real estate investment. Clearly, some of the categorization is open for negotiation :)


    I cannot believe the price levels that Canadian real estate, and Canadian real estate securities have attained. Although my approach is to treat this part of my portfolio as a "HOLD", I have sold much of my Canadian Bank position, as I believe that both sectors have the same return drivers (and the banks pay a lower yield). Again, please be as careful when you buy, as what you buy. Just my $0.02...
