Two Harbors Investment, New York Mortgage Trust, Hersha Hospitality Trust, RLJ Lodging Trust, and Capstead Mortgage Early Briefing and Review PR Newswire LONDON, April 10, 2013 LONDON, April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The housing market is continuing to see a strong recovery in 2013.

This augurs well for REITs such as Hersha Hospitality Trust (NYSE: HT), and RLJ Lodging Trust (NYSE: RLJ), which focus on hotels and motels. For Capstead Mortgage Corp.
