Bad fundamentals as the top pitch has commented. Also, college is super-expensive and the internet is making online degrees easy and cheap driving away their customer base. I wouldn't bet on growth.

Growth in student population will always keep driving growth in this sector. GOOD-SECTOR.

P/E is crazy right now, but I went to college in a community with a few of ACC's complexes, and they are crazy nice. It's like resort living for college students. No matter how bad the economy gets, all of my friends can still find COLLEGE level jobs and afford the ridiculously cheap rent that includes everything. The one's I'm living in now are actually at capacity. I think this stock will continue to struggle short term, but this is a long term pick for me. This is the way college living is heading, I'm jumping on board now!

I don't understand why this company isn't performing better. It specifies in student housing. Students are always going to need housing. Now with more people going back to school, ideally, this stock should be a safe real estate bet.

Real estate is down and this will just keep on being down. It's an over leveraged company. Maybe after a year or so?

a winner for a long time to come. The debacle in housing credit, will force more people to rent, driving rent increases and prices for years to come. It's cyclical, like any previous housing booms/busts

Look out below.

- PEG of 14.6x, P/E of 122x among highest in industry
- Gross & Op margins in line; net margin is 1/3rd industry
- Revenue growth actually trails industry
- ROE <2%, ROA & ROI <1%
- below average interest coverage (non-problematic right now, though)

Student housing is not going to decrease, it not prone to subprime, dividend yield is good (almost 5%), and technically it is about to break out above that 15 month long $31 bar and going to go much higher.

These student housing projects are gorgeous. I don't see how students could NOT live in them.

When all the numbers look right, you don't argue, just get on board.

Student housing is a VERY HIGH GROWTH industry and this REIT is the best way to get in on the action.

Besides he growth, you get great dividends.

whether housing dips or peaks, college kids will rent near campus and enrollment is increasing.
