Stock Pick: BioMed Realty Trust, Inc. (BMR)

This REIT is paying 14% in dividends.  The problem with REIT’s in this economy is the decline of real estate prices.  However, BMR specializes in acquiring, developing, owning, leasing and managing laboratory and office space for the life science industry.   I checked that many of its tenents are very mildly impacted by the recession.  In general, the life science industry is still in the growth stage as the baby boomers are entering retirement.  Therefore, I think the stock is over-sold and would have a nice rebound as the economy recovers in addition to the fat dividend.
