Current Market Affairs


While the U.S. markets are in fear of a recession, investors seem to know one place they want to park their money: REAL ESTATE stocks (i.e. REITs, Real Estate Index funds, Real Estate ETFs).

Note Revere Community:

REITs - Real Estate Investment Trusts

ETF - Exchange-Traded Funds

While a yield curve inversion may NOT ALWAYS signal a recession, investors will be watching what the Federal Reserve does. Real estate stocks ticked up last month when Fed chief Jerome Powell said there may be a possible cut in interest rates. The Dow plunged 800 points Wednesday after the yield on the two-year Treasury note pushed higher than the yield on 10-year Treasuries a few weeks ago — a sign investors think it’s riskier to make shorter-term investments than longer-term ones. Markets have been on edge since last week, after President Donald Trump escalated the trade war. Last week, signs of an escalating trade war between the U.S. and China caused real estate stocks to dip but then largely performed WELL compared to the overall market.
