  • 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.

  • Petroleum & Resources: A Cheap Way To Invest In Energy [View article]
    I have owned this fund for many years and, as far as I remember, it
    ALWAYS has sold at this level of discount. Therefore, the discount should not be a major consideration in buying this fund.

  • Commonwealth REIT (CWH) fell 4.3% last night after a motion to block the company's secondary offering were denied. The offering of 34.5M shares is expected to close today. (PR[View news story]
    Makes a lot sense. Anyway, I sold our IRA holdings yesterday before the market closed which, so far, looks like a good move. I'm keeping my holdings in our taxable account and if CWH prevails I will sell it for a loss (let the government cover part of my losses for letting the markets run like the old wild west).

    This unfortunate and just to show you that there are no laws to protect the small investor from a management which set its mind up to enrich themselves at the expense of the shareholders, who have seen their principal and dividends shrinking, while RMR's fees keep increasing. And where is the SEC who is supposed to protect the small investor? Let us hope time will prove me wrong.

    Billy-Unless the 'dog' outmaneuvers the guards-this is a very vicious and canning dog.
    Still, I hope you are right.

    I read yesterday that a hedge fund took a 5% position in the company. Maybe, there is some hope here, after all.

    What stroke me is all those buildings that are under occupied, which they now have to rent out at below market prices or sell at a loss. This is what happens when one keeps buying buildings for the sake of generating management fees for RMR, regardless of their earning power. What a shame.

    If pressure on RMR continues and no activist investor will step in, they might decide to take the company private at a fraction of the book value. This will be their biggest coup yet or, maybe, this might have been their goal all along.

    Hype Zero-The economy has nothing to do with what's going on with CWH. There are plenty of REITS which have performed very well in the same environment. The difference is that, in this case,
    It seems that management is putting themselves ahead of the shareholders, while the others, practice the opposite approach. Two examples for successful companies which are sharehoder friendly are W.P. Carey (WPC) and Realty Income (O).

    Somehow, activist shareholders do not seem to be attracted to the stock, despite it being sold at a fraction to book value. Maybe, they feel that the mess the company had been driven into is too much for them to handle. If the SEC would not bother,as stated above, and no outside activist force will step in, the downward spiral will continue, unless RMR will reverse course, which is very doubtful under the circumstances. What a shame. And then the pundits wonder why the investor public, is shying away of the stock market.

    It sounds as if The Board of Directors, which is supposed to represent shareholders interests, has given RMR a license to enrich themselves at the expense of the shareholders. Something is very 'fishy' here and, unless an outside force gets involved, one can expect diminished stock value and dividends.
