So you assume the RMR companies are the only ones with conflict of interest? How many others have experienced downward movements in share price? And how many of the prinicpals of the firm done well? This is a time worn argument that isn't particularly relevant. The larger shareholders, principals almost always do well under any scenario. Thats capitalism.
CWH might be stinking up the place,but making a blanket statement about other reits performing much better is a stretch.
There are many office reits of similar size that are down 66% from their highs and the same goes with their dividends.
PKY was a $58 stock with a 2.60 div,it is now $16 with a .45 div,BDN is in the same boat and CLI is still down 50% from its last high
PKY is in the same level of CWH at 70% down.
BDN is just over 50% down, that is a good bit better.
CLI is about 47% down. that is also better then CWH.
Also 3 is a few.
So as I said before FEW Office REITS have performed as terrible as CWH.
RMR has failed us, I hope they can be removed some day.
