REITs Lose Ground In First Half on Interest Rate Concerns

REIT returns lost ground in the first half of 2015, in part over expectations of the potential market impact of rising interest rates.

For the year to July 6, total returns from the FTSE/NAREIT All REIT Index declined 3.2 percent. The S&P 500 was up 1.5 percent during the same period. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note gained 0.1 percent during that time.
