Price matters. Real estate funds have trumped all other categories of stock fund over the last 3 years, not because the underlying assets have great fundamentals, but because the class "was priced for bankruptcy" in 2009. Now the fundamentals are turning. Some favorites: VNQ, SPG, AVB, FNIO, ICF, IFGL.

    Don't bother. PPSs' all nearly at 12 mo. highs. Except for IFGL, dividends nothing to get excited about, either.

    I have held long SPG over many years. It was pathetic how dangerous this holding was in the 2008-9 period. They stopped all dividends for while. Amazing they survived----the stock went down to about $30-40 as I recall. I guess the Oracle is correct with his:" be brave when others are fearful "( paraphrased poorly)........

    I've made 13% return on top of almost 5% div payments from VNQ in 6 months so I think it's time to cut and run and see what happens.
