Not all my REIT investments are successful! A good example is my investment in Medical Properties Trust (MPW), which has performed very poorly in recent years due to tenant difficulties. This REIT has cost me over 70%. In short, I underestimated the leverage of the REIT because I underappreciated the risk of its cash flow. However investors commonly also make other mistakes when investing in REITs. Just to name a few: they fail to identify conflicts of interest, they pay too much attention to the dividend yield, and they ignore foreign REITs.
