New Stock Coverage: Kite Realty Group Trust Can Fly High


On what was, from Berlin to the Caribbean Basin , a banner day for Communists, capitalism finally struck back. Stocks snapped a two-session slide, with ironic thanks to encouraging developments out of Red China, where Mao's Great Leap Forward continued with Shanghai shares hitting their highest level since the last day of spring.
