Seasonality fags get in here. This one is for you.

    So what you’re saying is that October would be a good month to accumulate PM’s.

    I have been accumulating SKT, KIM, CBL, & KRG heavily for the past month near the lows.. Simon(SPG) is getting a bid today.. There is some growing evidence that we may get a bid in these stocks headed into holiday.. Take a look at the charts.. I have poured over fundamentals for past two months and the valuations are over done on the downside in my opinion.. There will be a transition to life style communities in real estate owned, especially by KIM in the coming years.. If we stay out of recession for next 1-2 years, these all have significant upside with large divs.. Lets see what happens over the coming weeks and months..
