  • Real estate and other yield-sensitive sectors were again relative outperformers. The commercial Real Estate ETF (VNQ) finished lower by 2.2%, led by 1.0% gains from the self-storage sector.

  • For the week, REITs are still higher by 5.4% while the S&P 500 remains higher by 2.1%. Today's declines, however, pushed the S&P 500 back into correction territory.
