    What's the Problem?

    Good luck if you are buying now. There may be nothing wrong with the company but I have seen so many similar instances where bad news eventually leaks out(too late for the investors of course) that I personally would rather wait it out and pay more but have the assurance that all is well.

    • There may be problems, but as of Oct. 13 there was a problem with only one tenant and that was the hospital that the tenant elected to stop operation in Houston and the unit is on the market. The same tenant had a hospital in CA that was doing fine. It is only my opinion but I think it is the general market conditions. A lot has been sold because it appears that we will have a democrat president and democrat congress that know how to tax better than anything else. It is hard to believe we can get in that condition, but I think the majority will be that dumb.

      • Please this is not a political thing. Although I am republican they have not been good for the economy to date either.

        MPW is going down as all the REITS and to a lesser but still significant percent the market as a whole.

        This has been the worst October in 70 years.

        I hope the end is coming soon. This redemption and deleveraging will eventually exhaust and we will have a week where the dow will be up 2000 points. The big question is when?

      • I suspect that when stock went under 5.00 it could no longer be margin ed as well not allowed in mutual funds. I also don't know if ETF's can have in portfolio
