  • Ending the week off by roughly 1.5%, the Equity REIT ETF (VNQ) finished fractionally lower today with 9 of 18 property sectors finishing in positive territory. Mortgage REITs gained 1.3%.

  • Aided by the WWII-levels of fiscal stimulus over the last several months, retail sales jumped to all-time record highs on an annualized basis in July, climbing 1.2% from last month and 2.7% from the same month last year.
