    Mid-America Apartments reported this evening

    Cautious - You're right on target........... one can not lump all types of REITs together.........
    Office & Apartment look better than Malls right now, on a relative basis.

    SPG & WRI not going to do as well this year as, for example HRP.

    I am at a loss to come up with a specific example of an Apartment REIT that I have/or did have recent experience with.

    I bailed from a lot of Apartment Building investments when Greenspan lowered the interest rates and caused the current housing bubble. Vacancy was a major issue.

    As it(vacancy) will be with Malls - mild or severe, this recession will last 12 months, at a minimum. IMHO
