Gives the exposure to a large basket of REITs. Highly exposed to the large cap end of the REIT market. Feels there are better opportunities in the small cap end.

Probably a good time to get into real estate, as REITs tend to go with interest rates. Feels the near-term trend in interest rates is probably to go lower.

Believes it is a good time to have REITS. It still looks attractive. There is a thirst for Canadian real estate. It may have 8% returns.

REITs have been soft and this is the reason for the drop in price. This is a buying opportunity but wait for two or three weeks to see what happens..

As bonds rally, yields go down which will put pressure on REITs. Foreign investors are becoming attracted to Canadian real estate which seem to keep the prices high. To buy, look for days when they moved down sharply.

A great way to "one stop shop" to have all the REITs instead of having to try to pick out the individual ones. 6.5% yield is a little lower than he would like. Prefers juniors Huntingdon (HNT.UN-X) and Lanesborough (LRT.UN-X) which pay a little bit more, like 9/10%, but you have to do your due diligence.

Q: Riocan (REI.UN-T) versus TSX Capped (XRE.UN-T). A: With Riocan you are taking company specific risks while the TSX Capped (XRE.UN-T) would be more diversified. NOTE: Can't find the symbol XRE.UN-T. Sorry.

(A Top Pick Feb 16/05. No change, but did have an 8% payout.) Doesn't think that interest rates on the long end of the curve are going up. Real estate still has a little ways to go. Very good cash flow.

If you don't think that longer term interest rates are going to go up, real estate is a pretty good place to be. There's a 6%+ yield on this product.

If you don't have a lot of time to invest, or an unsophisticated investor, this may be a good way to own REIT's. Would consider getting into a fund instead.

Caller:Shorts 10-yr bonds using ETFs and buys income trusts to earn the spread. A: Go long the REIT index for a basket, rather than 1 or 2 trusts is a safer way.
