Why it matters: Millionacres' Maurie Backman explains why this crowdfunded attack on short-selling hedge funds really doesn't mean much long-term good news for these two struggling companies -- or for the commercial real estate owners who are their landlords.
Boston Properties Bets on the Return to Big Cities

Why it matters: There aren't a lot of REITs or stocks of any kind, really, focused exclusively on the legal cannabis trade.

Skilled Nursing Investors Hang On Despite the Pandemic
Wealth Management reports a handful of investors are buying senior properties… and the prices they're paying, on average, are even higher than before the pandemic, despite the empty beds at many facilities.
Why it matters: The report says the average price per unit has stayed stable, despite a drop in total facilities sale volume, indicating a core belief in the value of these properties going forward. That's reassuring for REITs that specialize in senior living.
