These ten major real estate investment trusts (REITs) are in downtrends from their January peak prices to their present, much-lower values. Some of this movement has to do with interest rates, some with other issues – but whatever the case, sellers are outdoing buyers on these all year.
Not all REITs are declining, but these ten are widely followed. It’s clear from the price charts of each one that it’s been a tough year. Anyone looking for growth has to be disappointed with 2022 and the REIT sector.

As indicated, it will be hard to call them growth REITs until these trends reverse.
