Sorry. Thought you knew that whole post was a joke.

squash-who do you feel comfortable with on the reit side? my b/d has a ton, but i only feel comfortable at this point with wells and inland. have done next to nothing with either, but need to start and am just gun shy a bit.

We've been using Cole Capital in my group. 7% Yield monthly to client.

noggin-are they meeting that 7% from revenue or spending their own cash to keep it going? i only ask because i have seen a few reits drop their higher dividend back down lately.

I used to have a partner who used some other companies that paid a higher dividend, but I weigh that against the chance of them keeping it up over time, and I would rather take the lower dividend but safer overall investment because they are not wasting the money on an expensive dividend…

  Inland has this disclaimer on it's for broker use only that says "we have done 369 investment programs and during this time none of our investors have gotten back less than the principal amount they invested"... not  a guarantee but show some nice past history..

I’m confused. Inland is a public REIT. How can they claim that no investor has received less than their principle back? They are off 50% from their high. Are they referring to when they were a private REIT? Maybe I’m missing something.

Got it.  Thanks TIH.

  Are they affiliated?  I assume so based on the name.

yes, all owned by the same “group.”

There are a couple more too. IRC is the only one recently that has gone public, one(Inland Retail was merged into DDR(shareholders got $14.00 buyout), another one Inland Western is closed to new investors, and a third Inland American is still adding new investors.
