  • Ehh, What's Up DOC? [View article]
    Thanks for your insightful article, as always !!

    I held MPW at the time that I also purchased DOC. MPW has fared quite well for me.

    ****Brad .. I realize that you know so much more than me, but,when you write your article on MPW, please consider that the S&P rates MPW a 4 STAR with a quality ranking of "B".****

    Sorry .. I did not think that both of my comments would be back to back since I wrote them at different times.

    Your loyal follower and Newsletter subscriber, Socksycat

  • The Day I Was Surrounded By Market Timers [View article]
    Off topic, Brad, but I cannot resist ... ARCP (modestly) beat earnings .. They did it !!

    Thank you, Brad, for staying with ARCP, giving me the confidence to do the same .. Truly thrilled this a.m. since ARCP is my second highest percentage REIT holding following "O".

  • Can Red Lobster Claw Back Its Once Loyal Customers? [View article]
    Brad .. Thank you for another interesting article !

    RL ... location, location, location.
    I ate at a nearby RL often. It had a large waiting area which was usually crowded. There was a bar on one side of the waiting area .. order an ice tea, etc. or drink while waiting. On the other side of the bar was a very nice dining area in the bar. The main dining area was laid out very nicely. My only "gripe" with them is that their shrimp was not up to par with other restaurants. My husband loved their salmon.

    This RL was located on a strip of office buildings (lunch business) and some pretty upscale restaurants. A great location ! I had not been their for several months and was surprised as I drove by that there was a new seafood restaurant .. so quickly.

    ARCP hand picked its 500 restaurants/locations ... Could be great locations with valuable land and easy turnover to a new restaurant to move in quickly if the RL brand fails at a given location such as mine.

    Nicholas may have more up his sleeve than just reviving RL ...

  • Be Prepared For Mid-Year REIT Results, Part 2 [View article]
    Thank you once again, Brad :)!

    I also got into STAG at a pretty low price .. one of the first REITS that I purchased. I wish that I would have purchased another tranche when STAG hit a low in the mid $21 range in the spring.
    Here's hoping that STAG (and CSG) have good earnings.

    Brad .. you are the reason behind my success (plus a couple of great Tech Blue Chips :) .. always remember that you have so many loyal followers, and I would imagine Newsletter subscribers !!!

    Brad ... This article is just wonderful .. what a great idea to give us a better feel for upcoming earnings.

    Since earnings are spread out through mid August,
    Would you be able to cover all of your SALSA stocks plus MNR?

    BTW, loved your July Newsletter !!!

    Chris ...
    On June 20th of this year, S&P Capitol IQ upgraded MPW to a 4 STAR BUY.
    Also, their earnings have had 7 (Quarters) positive surprises in a row.

    I hope that this helps.

  • Retirement Strategy: How Owning Higher Yielding Stocks Can Offer Greater Income [View article]
    How about including a REIT such as Realty Income"O". It has a history of many years of always paying and increasing its dividend. "O" also pays monthly.
    However, I would wait for a pullback. See Brad Thomas' SA articles on "O".

    RS, Thank you for a very interesting article.

  • General Growth Properties Has Plenty Of SALSA [View article]
    Brad, Thank you for the very comprehensive article on GGP.

    However, even with its share price, its dividend yield does not make the mark IMHO.
    I'll keep an eye on GGP, however, with its low dividend yield, I will look elsewhere first.

    Also .. where does the retail mall sector compare to other REIT sectors ?
