  • After a strong start to the week yesterday, the broad-based commercial Real Estate ETF (VNQ) declined by 0.6% with every property sector finishing lower besides single-family rentals and data centers.

  • Prologis (PLD) kicked off REIT earnings season on a relatively high note, boosting 2020 FFO and occupancy guidance and projecting another robust year for industrial real estate demand.
