Disclosure: Author has been long CIM since July 2010. The author is not an expert in the Real Estate field and has no experience whatsoever with REITs. Readers should do their own due diligence by examining the companies quarterly and annual reports. ============================================ In other words.... any high school kid able to type can write articles for SeekingAlpha. Stop wasting your time reading SeekingAlpha, instead... "Seek" for yourself and make up Your own mind without being influenced by people who write for a living rather than invest. jmo - :o) Discl: No position at this point.
as the author is a "student" of the investment world/finance... I take it all with a grain of salt. I had the series 6,7,and 66. It doesn't make anyone a genius or add credibility. Just means you are as dangerous as any clown out there. Now, after almost 40 years in investments/finance- I like CIM, yet it also makes me watch it like a hawk. But then, what do I know. The government has things so screwed up, all I see is a house of cards. Soon we will be asking the Chinese for permission to go to the bathroom... but for me it will be to puke.
