<That the PR dept at AHR still exists? You would think they would say something on occassion!? I assume they aren't paid very much, because they apparently have very little to do! Good luck longs!>
Go to any message board in this sector and you will see the same thing: Some shareholder whining about IR, as if IR could tell them anything even if they got through. Go the the message board of the following REITs in this or a related sector: NCT, GKK, NCT, JRT, MPG, SFI (until they announced PFD divvys today), BEE, CYRV, ALD, DDR, ACAS, FCH, GGP, NRF, RSO, AHT, etc etc etc. You will see the same type of message. Some poster complaining about an IR dept that cannot give out any info until and unless the board authorizes it.
All these stocks have been beaten into the ground as the investor community loses faith with all the various "bailout" plans coming out of the DC and the weak credit market conditions. Until and unless the sector wide cycle breaks, stocks like AHR will continue to drift. Complaining about an IR dept that is powerless anyway isn't going to change that.
Last year, AHR set their 4Q2007 ER date on 3/5/2008 and announced the results on 3/8/2008. Wow, I can see it is going to be painful reading the messages on this board between now and when they finally announce the 4Q numbers.
The guy that runs the I.R department is a clown, no matter how many times you call, he is never there to take you call. He would be the frist person i would get rid of if i was the C.E.O..But you have to understand the company has no repect for there shareholders as sad as that is.
