Investment Insights
Factoid of the Day Wednesday, July 23, 2014
Year-to-date through 7/22, the FTSE NAREIT Equity REITs Index outperformed the S&P 500 by 10 percentage points (18.6% vs. 8.5%), on a total return basis. The S&P 500 outperformed the FTSE NAREIT Equity REITs Index by 29.5 percentage points in 2013. Barclays still likes REITs moving forward due to its expectation for strong earnings growth, limited new supply, rental rate growth and a belief that the Federal Reserve will continue to maintain a low interest rate climate, according to GlobeSt.com. Barclays sees reported funds from operations (per share) increasing by 13.9% (y-o-y) in 2014. Barclays’ favorite REIT sectors are apartments, industrials and technology.
