REITs Make Gains in August

REITs picked up steam in August as the total return from the FTSE NAREIT All REITs Index gained 3.4 percent, slightly below the 4 percent increase in the S&P 500 Index during the same period.

As of the end of August, however, the FTSE NAREIT All REITs Index was up 19.8 percent for the year, compared to a 9.9 percent gain for the broader market.

Matt Werner, portfolio manager at Chilton Capital Management, noted that in August, “the REIT ascent continued thanks to another strong earnings season and further declining interest rates.”
