  1. Develop a set of financial ratios that will provide Blue Street Advisors with useful information in the evaluation and comparison of National Property Trust with other REITs.

What does this price range imply about the amount of dividend that National would have to pay to be in line with comparable REITs?
  3. What is the NAV for National Property Trust assuming that a blended capitalization rate of 10 percent would be applicable for the properties owned by Blue Street Advisors?
