I've got about 18% scattered across specialty funds in technology, energy and energy services, materials and industrials, which I have no way of knowing what capitalization category they fall into. I need to move some of that into REITs when I rebalance in February.

------------------

I am struggling with the REIT question right now. It will soon be time to rebalance and since REITS and Small Cap have been beaten up this year, both are below my target Allocations. I have no problem shifting some money towards small caps but it seems premature to shift any into REITs. Shades of market timing I know but still it seems that REITs could easily continue to decline for another two or three quarters while all the bad news gets laundered.
