Coming off a 0.1% decline last week, the Hoya Capital US REIT Index finished the day slightly lower, retreating 0.1%. The cell tower, single family rental, and storage REIT sectors outperformed on the day while the shopping center, hotel, and healthcare REIT sectors lagged. The S&P 500 finished higher by less than 0.1%, climbing to new record high while the Nasdaq also finished at new record highs, climbing 0.3%. The 10-Year yield finished the day lower by 1 basis point following mixed economic data from China last night.
The Hoya Capital US Housing Index finished the day lower by 0.3% with two of the eight housing sectors finishing in positive territory. Home Improvement Retail and Residential REITs were the relative outperformers on the day while the Homebuilders were the relative laggards. Williams-Sonoma, Realogy, Restoration Hardware, Eagle Materials, and Louisiana-Pacific were the five best-performing stocks in the housing sector on the day.
Housing Starts and Permits data on Wednesday highlights this week’s economic calendar. Housing starts data beat estimates last month, led by a jump in multifamily starts to the highest monthly rate since 2016. Interestingly, while home sales data and mortgage demand data have accelerated over the past quarter, single-family starts and permitting data has been comparatively soft to this point. Other notable economic data points next week include Homebuilder Sentiment and Retail Sales data on Tuesday.
