No reason volatility
REIT prices have been moving around aimlessly on a paucity of fundamentally impactful news. Of particular note is the volatility in UMH Properties (UMH).

As it surged up to nearly $15.00, we sold UMH in an attempt to capture the gains from the violent upswing. We suspect volatility of this kind will continue and we will have an opportunity to redeploy those proceeds in the near future. A similar crash and subsequent partial recovery happened in CBL, but we did not feel comfortable buying more as our concentration is already high in that name.
I would like to once again emphasize the importance of remaining calm in this environment and focusing on the relative stability of underlying fundamentals.
