Still making money. Still covering for potential losses. Posssible special dividend in December 08 or March 09. Strong balance sheet, given current market externalities. Adequate cash, with opportunity to raise more through sales. Still $100 million available from CalPERS for addtional investment opporunities. Still paying a 15% dividend with no indication of any cuts to the dividend in the forseeable future
If you're looking at a dividend propoducer and can stomach small gyrations in the stock's price, JRT is for you; if your looking to trade it, find a higher volume, more volatle stock.
I have to agree, given JRT is a basically a duck flying during hunting season. It was a very good call. They are managing through the debt crises very well. The size of the margin calls was staggering but they prepared for and managed it.
Definitely a very strong team in my humble opinion. If more banks were run this well we would not have the credit crises. If we do not get a deep recession that knocks down commercial real estate this could be a real winner.
