Similar to a pattern seen a few times over the past few weeks, underneath a solid rally in the averages are big declines in a number of income favorites. The culprit again is falling Treasury prices, the long bond off more than a full point and yielding 3.32%. Some popular equity REITs: Equity Residential (EQR -1.3%), AvalonBay (AVB -1.4%), HCP (HCP -1.6%), Realty Income (O -2.6%), Senior Housing (SNH -2.9%), Omega Healthcare (OHI -1.3%), Government Properties (GOV -2%). Also: Continued rout in mREITs.

    Big deal. REITs and your other "income favorites" are merely bond proxies and ape bonds in their performance. Quality growth dividend payers...wmt, xom, cvx, jnj, etc....rallied in the last two days.

    It is still a new paradigm. These stocks used to rise right along in rallies like this one.
