I just shared what I knew. I posted this info on the cwh message board last week.
The second consideration is the fact that wre, which focuses on the washington dc market exclusively reduced its dividend due to lack of leasing in their dc office portfolio. wre is one of the long term stalwarts of the reit industry and owns some 2500 apts in addition to office and retail.
But if you knew this for months why didnt you put 2 and 2 together.
Yes, I recall this from last conf call but this has been known for months. And, yes they are struggling to renew leases and fill newly acquired space; and maybe anticipation of bad news Thursday is dropping price. Also, I find mention of weird trading in other names big swings in stocks normally without such; so maybe something market wide so going on.
Your remark about people not reading financial statements may make you feel like a big shot but why don't you skip the condescension and just share what you know.
