    Anyone have a read on why this is cratering so much?

    re dividend taxation, currently, dividends paid by REM and by mREITS are taxed as ordinary income. Tax changes such as a reduction in the prefential treatment of qualified dividends from operating companies will not impact the relative attractiveness of holding REM or m REITS in general. Question now is has the effect of continual QE been reflected in the share prices of mREITS held by REM? REM and mREITS are way oversold here from a technical standpoint. The question is more of a fundamental one. I would assert that REM is attractive at this level.
