Another day, and yet another, attractive, meaningful, solid, good-value recommendation to "Buy, buy, buy!" Thanks...not.
I bot CPT and suffered an immediate 15% retraction; although it’s back up to only -5%… and I don’t know why that happened??? But, I digress. I like MAA but have never found the right trigger point. Maybe soon, might write some puts if the premium is sufficient.
@Spanishmoss please buy it’s so I can get in 15% cheaper. Lol.
@Reit Investor I’m on it! Lol…

Do you have a preference of MAA or CPT?
@gastro4 - Own both
@gastro4 I could not decide between the two. So, I bought both about six months ago. Since then MAA has done slightly better in price with about the same dividend. I also am interested in the “expert’s” opinion.

@gastro4 both have strong balance sheets, but I prefer MAA more at present due to higher growth.
