    Occupancy trends

    You talk about manipulation. For the past 5 days this stock was unjustly decimated, taken out to the woodshed and pulverized. This is not just a stock being caught up in the market reversal since the short-lived January effect went on vacation. This has a floor with the fat 8% dividend. What has occurred here is scaring holders out just b4 the ex dividend date which occurs tomorrow. A full %age point has been added from 7.25 to 8.25 over the last 5 sessions. Someone or some entity wanted that stock, to have and to hold, during the x date. Those who flew the coup early, will pay the price. Once the market resumes the upside this dividend protected equity will rebound.

    • Agreed ...the price swings are irrational... and dividends are not rewarded since so many others are being cut and no longer provide a floor.
      The growing layoffs and unemployment cuts across all worker segments and MAA will be seeing rent defaults and increased vacancies. Usually results in increased concessions and decreased rents. Sad to say we'll be in the teens some time this year. IMHO
