StockCall Early Morning Insight into Annaly Capital, Chimera Investment, MFA Financial, American Tower, and Brandywine

LONDON, April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

REITs faced significant challenges after the housing market collapsed in 2008. However, the housing market has rebounded sharply since last year, benefiting residential REITs. The outlook for mortgage REITs remains uncertain. Mortgage REITs such as Annaly Capital Management Inc. (NYSE: NLY), Chimera Investment Corporation (NYSE: CIM), and MFA Financial Inc. (NYSE: MFA) face significant challenges as mortgage rates remain at record low levels. The commercial real estate market, meanwhile, has been showing signs of improvement, which augurs well for REITs such as American Tower Corp. (NYSE: AMT), and Brandywine Realty Trust (NYSE: BDN). REITs ended mostly higher in Tuesday's trading session, tracking gains in the broad market. StockCall has issued technical analysis and charting reports on NLY, CIM, MFA, AMT, and BDN.
