    Less politics; more SNH; I 2 Guilty

    What are prospects for SNH in the short to intermediate term. What about others like HPT?

    Have mortgage REITs like TMA become too risky?

    Its seems like demographics say that SNH is a good investment but at what price? Same true of HPT. Are there others where demographics are in our favor. Are there some where demographics may be against us?

    Assuming that fear and greed will continue to drive the markets and there is lots of corporate tap-dancing out there, where should we put our money (REITs, Oil Trusts, Pipelines, Tankers, etc.) to get good dividends without risking principle too much.

    If you think that executives are pure as the driven snow, the economy is booming, and altruism is bursting out all over, you probably won't respond well to my investment concerns and interests.

    Thanks

      Reply - those are EXACTLY where I have my money. REITS, Oil Trusts, and Tankers. . .just picket up VLCCF (tankers) last week. . .I doubt if we could EVER go wrong with oil. . .oh and also coal = ALRP was my best investment of 2004.

      • Interesting. I've gravitated towards oil
        and REITs, too. We can get burned
        that way, as well -- higher interest
        rates and lower oil prices may hurt. I bought
        some tanker stock. It's the same
        price to ship whether oil prices are high or
        low. But, I'm wary of my oil company
        stocks. Oil prices could sink.

        Suggest THO for your baby
        boomer strategy. RV's will continue
        to sell, and as with the last RV boom,
        oil prices don't seem to affect RV
        sales. Retirements do, and we'll be
        seeing a whole lot of those going forward.

        I still like SNH. This dip is a good
        place for the new buyer to get in. I
        may add some shares today. But, it's not
        foolproof. If interest rates go up,
        SNH could be affected.
