    Since this board is so dead... my results with WRI

    Glad you made a nice profit. Last January after I had just retired and started investing funds in my Rollover IRA, WRI was one of the first stocks that I had bought (1000 shares). Shortly after purchasing, the Company decided to change course in their business model. Looking at only the 4%+ dividends, and the possibliity that the stock would go down or be dead in the water, I sold. Now, I regret that decision and have changed my investing model. I had earlier set a plan for only investing in REIT's or Preferred's (part of my portfolio) that paid 7.5% dividends or better. Many do and I have done well. But, growth in capital gains: that is hard to predict. This REIT seems to have that capability and with any significant pullback in price from $45, I will be a buyer again for the long haul.
