Sorry for the delay getting back to you guys, I've been traveling. I have Inland Western and Inland American. Currently, I'm in the reinvestment plan on both. My situation is a little different than most REIT holders, in that I have no need for income now. So, the question is whether, as RW points o...

Re: What Are Inland Western Shares Really Worth?

Interesting analysis. Unlike the previous poster, I'm relatively young, so the dividend reduction (and the switch from quarterly to montly payments) isn't a big deal for me day to day, and I've sort of decided to ride this out. But, I will say that when I agreed to this investment (and the less toxi...
