Armageddon Puts Versus Truly Busted CRE REITS: Looking for that 5x-10x ROI Featured

Yesterday, I received a couple of emails along the lines of the one displayed below...

In recent times the company has used revolving credit facilities to fund debt repayments.It looks unlikely it will be able to do so this time around. Below is the depiction of projected cash shortfall in 2012...
