January selling agreements were down to 1,132 vs 1,151 in January 2014. Overall demand for non-traded REITS fell 7.6% for the company in 2014 as accounting issues were revealed at American Realty Capital Properties (ARCP had previously had a deal to sell Cole Capital to RCAP). More than 12.2M shares are currently sold short (70M+ shares outstanding).
