Nobody Does It Better Carly Simon

February 7, 2012 by staff 

Nobody Does It Better Carly Simon, “The Spy Who Loved Me” was perhaps one of Roger Moore’s best James Bond films. In this tenth film of the series, directed by Lewis Gilbert, secret agents James Bond and Anya Amasova foil an attempt by the reclusive Stromberg to destroy the world. What began as a rivalry between Bond and Amasova later grew into a love affair, and that affection was best illustrated in the theme song performed by Carly Simon, “Nobody Does It Better.”

Nobody does it better

Makes me feel sad for the rest

Nobody does it half as good as you

Baby, you’re the best

As James Bond and Agent Amasova developed a special attraction to each other, there was “some kind of magic inside” and similarly, in investing there is a unique feeling when you discover a REIT that makes me wonder, “How’d you learn to do the things you do?”

Finding the Magic REIT

There are 123 equity REITs that make up the FTSE NAREIT Index (here) and, due to conservative capitalization fundamentals, focused sector performance and improving economic conditions (with virtually no new supply), most REITs will continue to maintain an upward trajectory in 2012. In the retail sector there are signs that the frozen demand for retail space is thawing across the nation. In the fourth quarter, Reis (here) data showed that over three million square feet of neighborhood and community center space were leased, the largest increase in occupied stock since the sector’s vacancies began rising in late 2007. Furthermore, asking and effective rents both rose by .1%, the first recorded increase in rents since early 2008. As explained by Victor Calanog, PhD, chief economist with Reis:

“There’s a lot of ground that has been lost. Effective rents are now back to levels last observed more than five years ago, back in early 2006. But larger property types like malls are doing better too, with vacancies in the fourth quarter dipping by 20 basis points to 9.2%. Higher quality retail properties are riding the wave of stronger job creation in 2011, and though we can’t rule out choppy waters ahead, 2012 may well be the year when we record the turnaround for retail properties as a whole.”
