When we add in what we see as a strong backdrop for enrollmentgrowth across the U.S., we believe the private student housing industry, EducationRealty included, should see meaningful growth in units and asset values over thelong term. Overall, we believe that EDR represents a compelling total return storyfor investors over the next 12 months, given the company's developmental expertiseand favorable capital position. That said, we believe the shares are undervaluedat current levels."
