Hi HTH, If you bought in an 2000 you would have had a nice ride up until last summer but if you bought in 5 years ago it would not have done real well. That is how I read it. The REIT should apply to appartment complexes, shopping malls etc. right? There are a lot of vacancies around here. Looking at the chart, if you bought 5 years ago it doesn't look like it would have been a good investment yet if you look at the Vanguard snapshot they show an average of about 13% (I think) since inception. If that isn't exact forgive me I have an awful lot of numbers floating around in my head right about now. That was a bar chart I picked up on at their web site. Is your Health and Capital at Vanguard also?
