Hate to say I told you so Banx, but I did warn you about what to expect when you started posting here.  You can join the long list of investors/speculators who bought into VTR based on some positive news and the amazing value it seemed to be, only to find themselves sitting on a 10 - 20+% loss a month later, for no apparent reason, wondering what happened.  If you stick around you'll see the pattern, unfortunately it will continue to cost you in terms of the price of whatever shares you hold.
