August a slow month for REIT performance
REITs' performance in August was lackluster. The FTSE NAREIT All REITs Index gained 0.46%, and the FTSE NAREIT All Equity REITs Index rose by 0.12%. The S&P 500, by contrast, increased by 2.25%. "August was a moderate up month. I expect to see other months of just moderate progress and some other months with negative progress. But, overall, 20% per year on average returns has been the norm for the last three REIT market upturns," said Brad Case, NAREIT's senior vice president for research and industry information.

There have been $1.25 billion worth of commercial mortgage backed securities sold this week, according to sources. Riskier loans are being included in the securities, but these more lax underwriting practices are not dissuading investors.

Mortgage REITs likely to take a hit from new quantitative easing
The quantitative easing on the way from the Federal Reserve will not be good for mortgage REITs. Lower interest rates will result in a tight interest rate spread, cutting into the REITs' business model.
