YTD Detractors Summary
In the June 2022 REIT Outlook titled, “Equity REITs: Vulnerable to the Private Equity Put,” we review the recent flood of privatization deals among REITs. While the rise in the 10 year Treasury yield has certainly hurt the current prices of public equity REITs, private equity giants such as Blackstone have a mandate to invest in commercial real estate as holding cash is dilutive to their cost of capital. As such, we believe the potential for mergers and acquisitions (or M&A) activity will help REIT prices to find a floor, giving some hope to near term REIT prospects.
