    • I am using stated equity which I know overstates
      book! Therefore, the REITS bought at or near book are
      also below liquidation. Also, I can't think of a
      better inflation hedge than income producing

    • << I bought 10 total at, near or
      significantly below book growing 5% to 27% and paying an avg
      divie of 9.40%..>

      Good job! .... and don't
      you Love those dividends! (sorry Napart... no
      offense!) ;-) You should be getting a string of dividend
      checks soon... I just got my first one last week...
      $1000 bucks! Howz that for a frik'n dividend? 'Sure
      beats the piddly $40 or so I'm used to

      BTW... when you say you bought 'below book value' are
      you referring to the numbers in the finacial
      statement, or the actual liquidation value? You probably
      already know this, but Book Value for REITS is typically
      significantly understated... because it's listed on the books
      at purchase price, not the current appreciated
      value.... Awesome!

    • Yep, I would have prefered it if Buffett had laid
      low for less than one more week. However, I bought
      the last two today. I only had to pay about 10% more
      on the last three instead of scraping the bottom
      before the nice 5 to 15% per REIT run last week. I
      bought 10 total at, near or significantly below book
      growing 5% to 27% and paying an avg divie of 9.40% so I
      am not complaining.


    • Doesn't it suck that Buffett had to go in and
      'announce' he's buying some REIT stock??? There were so many
      bargains out there it was like picking money up off the
      floor..... now he ruined it for all us value hunters.... I
      like Buffett, but sometimes he over does it.... I know
      you were in there accumulating REITS also... hope you
      finished buying before the recent run up.

      ps. And
      why did he have to 'announce' just before dividend
      season? Oh, well... win some, lose some! :-)
