Got out yesterday and just sold off my XLF this morning while it was up. REIT's can be like a hot girlfriend that turns around and sticks a knife in your back. Lots of allure with divis but the share price sinks wiping them out.
If you guys are sick of this, check out NCZ, it's a CEF. Been holding about 3 years now, got 23K in that and she throws out a nice 200 to 230 dollar divi every month like clockwork. The share price is fairly stable every day. I have no vested interest if you buy or not, just sayin'.
