LONDON, January 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

REIT companies, including those operating in the office segment such as  Duke
Realty Corp.  (NYSE:DRE) and American Realty Capital Trust Inc.
(NASDAQ:ARCT), have been enjoying a relatively positive environment through
the fourth quarter of 2012, and many expect the trend to persist in the New
Year. StockCall have published technical and charting review on Duke Realty
and American Realty Capital Trust, and these are available for free by

The uncertainty surrounding the wider economy has kept interest rates low,
providing REITs with good opportunity for growth. Furthermore, low levels of
supply have been benefiting the industry and constrained lending for
development will likely continue this trend.

During the final quarter of last year, REIT mergers and acquisitions gained
some momentum, fuelled by easy access to capital and low interest rates. For
some this seems to be carrying over into 2013. American Realty Capital Trust
Inc. recently announced that its merger with Realty Income Corporation has
gained stockholders' approval. Read our full analysis on American Realty
Capital Trust at http://www.StockCall.com/ARCT012413.pdf

Elsewhere in the industry, Duke Realty seems focused on improving its balance
sheet and lowering its interest expenses. The company recently priced a public
offering of 36 million common shares at $14.25 per share, the proceeds of
which are intended to pay down debt and for general corporate expenses. Sign
