I suppose my past gains and pure stubbornness has kept me in lots of retail reits longer than the party lasted. Kingran and others are proving to be right in their views. The other mistake I often make is letting tax consequences control the process. As I still have quite a large gain in roic in a taxable account, for example, I keep thinking the downward slope will stop eventually, the dividends are decent and I really don't have a better idea for the proceeds of a sale at the moment. So, here I sit, thinking of at least selling a portion of two or three of my holdings.
