Prefers that it is equal weight. That is the way to go. They will outperform cap weighted ETFs. REITs can still refinance at great rates. This whole interest rate thing has been way over done for REITs here.

Sold his holdings recently. This is in the gaming industry, with nearby beaches. Has a long history of doing well. Decreased the debt load, but there are a lot of difficulties. Have been losing money and they stopped paying a dividend. Because the stock price has gone down so much, it could get kicked off of the NYSE. If this happens, there will be a lot of selling as it could go down another 30%-50%.

An excellent sector to be looking at. A lot have been beaten down. This one has recently had a tremendous run. A lot of these companies do well when the economy does well. He doesn’t know the financials on this one that well, but one that he does follow more closely is Nordic American Tankers (NAT-N). The CEO keeps saying how well they are doing and yet it is not reflected in the stock price. But they also have a huge debt load, which scares him.

(A Top Pick August 16/12. Up 77.79%.) Thinks this could go to the mid-$30’s. Have to deal with a lot of different lawsuits. Company is profitable and the capitalization ratio is good. At some time he thinks they will increase the dividend but they have to get regulatory approval first. Getting kicked out of the Dow, which means the stock price could come down a bit more, but longer-term it should go up.

(A Top Pick August 16/12. Up 57.61%.) He sees this as possibly going over $20. His target price is $22+. They had to deal with the solar problems in France and Ontario and these are pretty much cleared up. Just did an acquisition and sometimes there are write-downs and they take time to digest.
