LONDON, April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

REITs had a mixed year in 2012. While REITs focusing on residential real
estate benefited from a recovery in the housing market, those focusing on
commercial real estate had a mixed year. Mortgage REITs, meanwhile, continue
to face significant challenges as mortgage rates remain at record low levels.
REITs ended mostly lower on Wednesday, tracking losses in the broad market,
which came under pressure following some disappointing earnings reports. Among
the major losers in the REIT sector included Newcastle Investment Corp. (NYSE:
NCT), Lexington Realty Trust (NYSE: LXP), Cousins Properties Inc. (NYSE: CUZ),
RAIT Financial Trust (NYSE: RAS), and Retail Properties of America Inc. (NYSE:
RPAI). StockCall professionals have completed their technical analysis on NCT,
