  • After finishing higher by 0.4% yesterday, the S&P 500 finished higher by 0.9% while the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained roughly 140 points while the Nasdaq gained 1.1%.

  • Following modest declines yesterday, real estate equities finished mostly higher today as earnings season hits high-gear over the next 72 hours with more than 60 REITs reporting results.

  • The broad-based Equity REIT ETFs climbed 0.3% led by the single-family rental and technology REIT sectors while Mortgage REITs gained 2.3%. Housing stocks delivered another strong day.
