REITs Deliver Best Week Since 2016.

The REIT ETFs (VNQ and IYR) climbed nearly 3% this week, delivering their best week since December 2016 despite downward pressure from rising interest rates and retail concerns. Homebuilders (XHB and ITB) climbed more than 2% despite the implementation of tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

Cell towers, hotels, and apartments were the best-performing REITs this week. Essex (ESS), UDR (UDR), SBA Communications (SBAC), and Sabra Healthcare (SBAC) each rose more than 6% this week. Malls and shopping centers were the lone sectors in negative territory. Pennsylvania REIT (PEI), Washington Prime (WPG), CBL (CBL), and Tanger (SKT) each dipped more than 7% on the week.

REITs are now lower by 9% YTD, underperforming the 4% rise in the S&P 500. Homebuilders are off by nearly 9%. The 10-Year yield has nearly 50 basis points since the start of the year.

REITs ended 2017 with a total return of roughly 5%, lower than its 20-year average annual return of 12%. Going forward, absent continued cap-rate compression, it is reasonable to expect REITs to return an average of 6-8% per year with an annual standard deviation averaging 5-15%. This risk/return profile is roughly on par with large-cap US equities.

The Housing Trap
You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should. The conspirators are all around you, smiling to lure you in, carefully choosing their words and watching your reactions as they push your buttons, anxiously waiting for the moment when you sign the papers that will trap you and guarantee their payoff. Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
