Reopening Reversal? Another Rough Week For REITs

Updated: Sep 10, 2020

  • Beneath the negative headlines, however, the same data also shows an encouraging decline in coronavirus mortality in the United States with deaths declining to the lowest daily level since March.

  • Adding to last week's declines of 2.1%, Equity REITs finished lower by another 4.8% with all 18 property sectors in negative territory while Mortgage REITs retreated by 2.8%.

  • Rising case counts and delayed reopenings threaten to derail the emerging economic recovery, but for now, the trend of stronger-than-expected economic data continued this week.
