CommonWealth REIT Research Report

Shares for CommonWealth REIT surged more than 50 percent after two of its
shareholders, Keith Meister, the founder of Corvex Management LP, and Related
Cos said they were willing to offer $25 per share to buy the company. The two
shareholders, which have a combined stake of 9.8 percent, called for a change
in management structure and insisted that the company cancels plans to issue
27 million shares and further increase its diluted outstanding share count by
nearly 30 percent. They also assert that CommonWealth's real estate assets are
worth about $40 per share, but poor management has driven down the stock,
causing it to be hugely undervalued. Many investors have sided with Related
and Corvex and agreed that CommonWealth should create better shareholder
returns and improve corporate governance. The Full Research Report on
