    now i like my REiTs , and just like the horrible pre-GFC peaks , they appeal as an alternative to term deposits and fixed interest securities , BUT some sort of easy credit reduction must be due soon ,

    some REIT's have kept the gearing ( and/or leverage ) to 40% and below

    should investors start calculating top-up targets , or stop-loss prices . ??

    some interesting opportunities ( in a low-yield world ) emerging now

    keep in mind the risk

    i will be watching to see what the cancelled/ soon to be re-floated WALE looks like in raw figures

    i will be looking for it to substitute for a fixed interest rate note/hybrid.
