LONDON, April 4, 2013
LONDON, April 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Earlier this week, reading on Institute for Supply Management's (ISM) index of
manufacturing activity came below forecasts. Still, the index showed a reading
of 51.3, which indicates expansion in manufacturing activity. Manufacturing
activity has been expanding as the U.S. economy continues to show signs of
recovery. This augurs well for industrial REITs such as Duke Realty Corp.
(NYSE: DRE), Prologis Inc. (NYSE: PLD), DCT Industrial Trust Inc. (NYSE: DCT),
Biomed Realty Trust Inc. (NYSE: BMR), and First Industrial Realty Trust Inc.
(NYSE: FR). On Wednesday, REITs ended mostly lower as the broad market tumbled
amid worries over North Korea and some weak economic data. StockCall has taken
