You have to be right in wondering when some major institution will sell some of their shares in a large lot to take the profit because we have had a big run up.... The major question is how much will we come down before leveling off and start to either climb or fly straight until the quarterly report comes out, which is bound to be good.
Institutions are not known to be traders. It would seem that any selling would've been at year end for "window dressing" or tax loss reasons. Any investing by any major inst. at this time should be buy and hold. IMO.
Agree 100%. fixed income funds are desperately looking for yield and MLP's and REIT's offer excellent yields currently. XTEX, APL, etc offer potential for 2011 onwards and fund managers are thinking well past 2010. Both of these have huge yield potential (more than $2/unit a year) and that is the reason for the buying. Once we get to $10 then I think it becomes much more speculative...as $1/unit seems very doable but some things need to go right for us to see $2/unit by 2011.
