LONDON, April 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

2012 was a mixed year for REITs. While a strong recovery in the housing market
benefited REITs focusing on the residential real estate market, record low
mortgage rates created significant challenges for REITs focusing on mortgages.
The recovery in the commercial real estate market, meanwhile, has been
inconsistent. However, there has been an increase in rents and occupancy rates
since the start of this year, which is a good sign for REITs focusing on
commercial real estate. REITs ended mostly lower on Thursday, tracking losses
in the broad market. Among the major movers were Starwood Property Trust Inc.
(NYSE: STWD), Senior Housing Properties Trust (NYSE: SNH), Hospitality
Properties Trust (NYSE: HPT), and Government Properties Income Trust (NYSE:
GOV). StockCall analysts initiated preliminary technical research on STWD,
