Good info! I have to be honest....I thought you were joking as well. Kind of like saying Payday Loans upgraded their price target on a stock. Interesting that they are getting into the securities business.
I think it will turn out for the best. I have sold their non-traded REITS and unless management flat out lied to their employees this company will rebound. My only regret in buying ARCP in the mid 8's is not having any cash to catch the energy stocks rebounding.
