Anne said: I think prudence will give the watchful investor some forewarning on bailing if and when this scenario occurs, and, yes, I suspect it will.

Anne, like you, I would hope that all of us are prudent and would know when to bail out out MREITs. For some reason, it does not seem to work that way.

Some poor investors owned Ameriquest, ECC Capital, New Century, Novastar, Thornburg etc as their share price went to zero. 100% of these MREITs shares were always owned by somebody. It must be that the investors they owned these when they went to zero were not the prudent ones.

May we always be prudent investors. . .

Thanks,

Yoda
