LONDON, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Diversified REITs such as Newcastle Investment Corp. (NYSE: NCT), Lexington
Realty Trust (NYSE: LXP), RAIT Financial Trust (NYSE: RAS), and Cousins
Properties Inc. (NYSE: CUZ) are expected to benefit from an ongoing recovery
in the residential real estate market in the U.S. While the recovery in the
commercial real estate market has not been as strong as that in residential
market, fundamentals have improved significantly in recent months, which
should benefit diversified REITs. However, for REITs such as Newcastle
Investment Corp., which invest in mortgages, record low rates remain a
concern. REITs ended on a mixed note on Monday even as the broad market fell
sharply amid concerns over Cyprus. StockCall has taken an interest in these
companies and you can now sign up to download the free technical research on
