  • Real estate-related equities ended a brutal week with the broad-based commercial Real Estate ETFs dipping another 1.5% to push their weekly losses to roughly 9%.

  • Mortgage REITs extended their punishing declines to a sixth straight day as mounting uncertainty over the impact of delays in mortgage payment collection compounded with existing short-term liquidity concerns.
