Real Estate Daily Recap: REITs and Housing Lead Late-Day Rally
Appearing to be another day of steep declines on the major US equity indexes, stocks climbed back all of their early losses throughout the day with the S&P 500 closing up by 0.1% and the Nasdaq gaining 0.5%. The domestic-focused REIT and housing sector outperformed today, leading the late-day rally. The more rate-sensitive segments of the REIT sector led todays gains including the net lease, healthcare, and data center REIT sectors. The Hoya Capital US REIT Index finished the day higher by 1.1% as the 10-Year yield dipped another 5 basis points, hitting the lowest level since mid-2016.
The Hoya Capital US Housing Index finished the day higher by 0.4% led by a strong late-day surge by the homebuilders. This morning, we published a new report on the Homebuilding sector, nothing that amid the volatile backdrop of trade wars and geopolitical uncertainty, the US housing market may be an unlikely stabilizing force. As goes the housing sector, so goes the economy. Lennar, DR Horton, PulteGroup, and NVR were among today's leaders.
