REITs Lower As Jobless Claims Mount [Daily Recap]

  • U.S. equity markets finished mixed on Thursday as investors look ahead to a possible re-opening of the U.S. economy following another rough slate of economic data.

  • 26.4 million. Initial Jobless Claims data showed that a decade's worth of employment gains have been erased - at least temporarily - in the last five weeks alone.

  • After gaining 2.3% yesterday, the S&P 500 finished marginally lower while the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 40 points after yesterday's 450-point gain.

  • Real estate equities finished mostly lower as the broad-based Equity REIT ETFs finished off by 0.9% with the beaten-down retail, office, and hotel sectors rebounding while Mortgage REITs finished lower by 0.6%.

  • We saw a flurry of REIT earnings this week - roughly 5% of the total REIT universe - and results so far have been generally pretty decent. Rent collection metrics from residential and industrial REITs has been strong, but not-so-much from retail REITs.
