    Cogen-I do not think that they can cut the dividend on the preferred. However, if I may give you my advice, I would stay as far away from these guys as possible.

    Dear Mr. Ori. I beg to differ. The poor performance of the common stock has more do with the self serving management than the economy. There are many REITS which have prospered in this same economic environment.

    Not if the fundamentals keep deteriorating.

    The fundamentals do not mean a thing here. What might make an investment worthwhile here is if the current self serving management can be removed before they cause further damage. This is a speculation rather than an investment, since the outcome is not clear-cut and certainly not a quick one.

  • Equity CEFs: 4 Funds To Buy And 4 Funds To Sell [View article]
    Doug-UTF-I doubt that they will increase the distribution, since part of it has been already ROC. Time will tell.

    Thanks Doug. PEO also sells call options against their holdings and pays the extra income at the end of the year. Therefore, the actual income distributed exceeds the declared 1.6%. That, however, does not make it a screaming buy since their performance over the years has been lackluster. Comes June, a new manager is going to take over and time will tell if he can make much if a difference.

  • CommonWealth REIT (CWH) unloads the rest of its stake in Government Properties Income Trust (GOV) - 9.95M shares - for $25.20/share, reaping net proceeds of $240.1M. GOV -5.3% to $25.12 premarket. (PR[View news story]
    I just looked-up CWH on Google Finance which states that institutions own 74% of the outstanding shares. If all these guys get together and a few individual shareholders join forces, the chance of throwing out the current self serving board seem pretty good.

  • Swiss Helvetia Offers Swiss Blue Chips At A 13% Discount [View article]
    I have owned this fund for many years and I do not remember it ever trading at less than 13% discount to net assets. Therefore, this by itself should not be a reason to buy this fund, which otherwise has done reasonably well.

  • CommonWealth REIT Urges Shareholders to Take No Action at This Time Regarding the Proposed Consent Solicitation [View article]
    Ate they serious? They want us giving them a free hand to continue fleecing the shareholders through their management company (RMR)? I can only hope that the majority of the shareholders are aware of the situation and will take the necessary action to kick them out.

    Knowing RMR history I think that you will be well serves selling your holding of GOV, which still sells above book value. I suffered a loss of over 50% on CWH and would hate to see others suffer the same fate at the hands of RMR.

    These guys just hit their existing shareholders as they usually do.
    They seem to have a lot of tricks up their sleeves to enrich themselves (through RMR) at the expense of their shareholders. Is seems that there are a lot of gullible investors out there who are not aware of their antics and keep falling for anything they offer.
