REIT Returns Outpace Broader Market in Solid First Half Showing

REIT returns doubled up the broader market during the first half of 2014, helped by low interest rates and muted supply, according to industry observers.

As of July 7, the FTSE NAREIT All REITs Index has had a total return of 16 percent, compared with 8.1 percent for the S&P 500 Index.

“The first half of the year has surprised us a little bit with how strong the REIT performance has been,” said Todd Lukasik, Morningstar senior analyst.
