  • After 59 equity REITs and 30 mortgage REITs announced a dividend cut in March through June, just one additional REIT has announced a reduction since the start of July.

  • While there haven't been any significant "fireworks" thus far, the back-half of REIT earnings season is where we'll see results from most of the troubled property sectors and more highly-levered REITs.
