    • Real-estate investment trusts were among the hottest stocks of the year, producing a total return of 32.3%, including dividends, according to the FTSE Nareit Equity REITs Index.
    • Boosted by low interest rates and an improving economy, the sector has climbed this year to its biggest gains in nearly a decade.
    • Analysts are predicting REIT shares to continue to perform well in 2015, as a stronger economy and increased M&A activity drown out the risk of possible rate rises.
    • With its shares rising 68.3% this year, the top-performing REIT in 2014 was Winthrop Realty Trust (NYSE:FUR).

    • There was little reaction to the company's Q3 about inline earnings results yesterday, but Medical Properties Trust (MPW +2.7%) is gaining in today's session as JMP Securities - looking like it's a believer in MPW's $1B+ in recent deals - upgrades to Market Outperform.

    • The agreement allows for MPW to purchase and lease back substantially all of the real estate assets of privately-held MEDIAN Kliniken Group, Germany's largest provider of post-acute and acute rehab services. The aggregate purchase price is expected to be about €705M, or $900M at current exchange rates.
    • The deal is a significant one for the company, boosting its asset base to about $4.5B, and it also builds on MPW's recent entry into Western Europe.
    • The 27-year master lease provides an initial lease rate well within the company's targeted 8-11% range, and there are annual escalators or at least 1%.
    • MPW also announces agreements to buy about $155M in other assets (some in the U.S., some in Germany).
    • Together, the deals are expected to be accretive to normalized FFO per share by $0.09-$0.12, taking the rate to $1.19-$1.26 from previous guidance of $1.10-$1.14.
