Will The Rent Get Paid? [Daily Recap]

  • U.S. equity markets rose on Thursday, buoyed by a sharp rise in oil prices, despite clear signs that the coronavirus-related economic shutdowns are inflicting significant damage on the U.S. economy.

  • Initial Jobless Claims data this morning showed that nearly 10 million Americans have filed for unemployment claims over the last two weeks, a historically unprecedented two-week surge.

  • After declining by 4.4% yesterday, the S&P 500 finished higher by 2.3% while the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 470 points after yesterday's dip of nearly 1000 points.

  • Real estate-related equities weren't beneficiaries of today's rally, however, as the broad-based commercial Real Estate ETFs gained just 0.5% with 14 of the 18 sectors in negative territory for the day.

  • The slide continued for Mortgage REITs amid continued concerns over short-term liquidity, margin calls, and the potential impact of mortgage forbearance.
