This REIT is perched at its 52-week high today tallying a 2nd consecutive volume-driven gain, getting more extended from any sound base.

Earnings have been below the year ago period in the Mar and Jun '14 quarterly comparisons. Earnings should be above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria) in the past 3-4 quarterly comparisons versus the year ago periods with solid sales revenues growth and acceleration. Ownership by top-rated funds fell from 463 in Sep '13 to 406 in Jun '14, not a reassuring sign concerning the I criteria.
