I, for one, certainly did not expect any kind of year end special divvy. I am more than happy to see REITs finally coming off the bottom. We own 5000 shares of NRO, having bought most of them in the 1.00 to 2.25 range. We also own RIF. We had 5000 shares of RDR before their merger with other RMR funds and becoming RIF. It also is moving up at last. Two days ago the WSJ ran an article on REITs, stating that they are on the rise finally. I think our patience with REITs will come to fruition. It has been frustrating to say the least. If one plays the market, I think long term planning is the best way to go. My opinion, anyway. Happy holiday to you.
