  • Love to see so many getting out of REITs...what a great opportunity for those who do not or who want to jump in.

  • The 1st quarter decline in book value may be a small harbinger of what happens if/when the Fed changes its low interest rate policy. BV collapses, rate spreads go negative and investors screwed. Profits have been great with MREIT'S the last 2 -3 years, but its time to move on.

  • Go ahead and sell off. That just drives the price down for me. The better managed mREITs are paying me well and I am staying long.
