    Dividend cut price reaction

    The lower dividend announcement combined with a reasonable conservative forecast is resulting in a higher share price for FCH. This has been my experience in equity reit holdings that I have had in past years. I am long and never short. I have held many reits over the period 2001 forward and sometimes they cut dividends. My experience (maybe you have a different one) is that dividend cuts quickly improve the share price after the initial shock period. (I'm talking equity reits not mortgage reits) Sure FCH dropped like a stone the day after reporting a dividend cut. But over time, this strategy will reward long term holders. I do not think this is a dead cat bounce. We'll see.
