As a subscriber to the "Forbes Real Estate Investor", I want to thank Brad Thomas for his countless superb articles over the years that have educated me to be a thoughtful and better informed investor. I look forward to reading your new book on REIT investing due to be released in late August."

  • "I am now a very satisfied customer of your Forbes newsletter. I subscribed right in the sweet spot: I am thoroughly enjoying the 2016 REIT boom. Particularly with the assistance of your dividend safety ratings (which have themselves paid for my subscription) & your buy-sell ratings."

  • "I am watching friends and family who pay 1.5% for "wealth management" and are getting very low returns in what should be a fairly good year. Point being, with you advice at zero cost to me, I am far ahead of my friends. I commented a few times on Lexington after my own evaluation of their financials and all you data. I went long in late January 6K shares and now wish it was 60K. Thanks again and always thanks for helping, big-time, all small individual investors."

  • "For all you savvy investors out there here is your laugh of the day...about a year ago I decided to "reach for yield" in my portfolio. As I am retired and can spend time researching REITs and BDCs, I decided to concentrate on some of these stocks. But I found that my research was not as accurate or as extensive as this Dude on Seeking Alpha...Brad Thomas. Wellbeing the naturally lazy person that my father always claimed me to be, I just found that Brad was doing the work for me. OK...here's the punch line...I just BUY 100 shares of any stock that Brad touts. I'm happy to report that I'm UP in all my purchases and enjoying the dividends. Crazy huh?"

  • Brad - I love your research, one of my most trusted sources for ideas and verifying my own stock DD. People can say what they want but Trump has been very successful in the real estate business which is a cut throat business. No one bats 1000... Look at it this way when he becomes president your worthless stock certificate that you had the foresight to hold unto will be a value historic document.

  • I don't care to risk my $ in any way....and don't gamble unless I know the risks are weighted in my favor......or paid a risk premium in my stocks. That is why I follow Brad Thomas.....he let's us know when it's a gamble. Thanks Brad for your expertise in so many ways.  Enjoy your week. :)) Rose.

  • Brad, thanks for sharing your great insights. I've followed your picks for awhile now but never took the time to thank you. I've done exceptionally well with most of your picks over the last year. I haven't gone with everyone but those I have, have topped 15% in unrealized gains and 6.75 % in cash dividends + nearly all have had dividend growth as well.

  • Brad, I understand this is an incredible bull market, but you seem to have the knack of fishing out the underappreciated. I was very wrong in criticizing you at some point in the past. I am up 10% on SNR since I bought it last month, and up way more on LXP, STAG, etc. I am so grateful for what you have provided here, and I recommend you to every new investor I meet. Your honesty is just amazing, and you don't always say every stock is a buy which is refreshing. Please accept my apology for being rude, and keep these wonderful ideas coming.
