    • Equity REITs are facing some competition as the 10-year Treasury yield has popped all the way to 2.24% (up 11 bps on the session) following the strong jobs report which saw 295K jobs added in February and the unemployment rate dropping to 5.5%.
    • Checking short-term interest rate futures, they're falling (meaning higher rates), but still not pricing in a rate hike until late summer.
    • The iShares U.S. Real Estate ETF (IYR -2.3%).
    • Realty Income (O -3.7%), National Retail Properties (NNN -3.9%), Agree Realty (ADC -3.1%), Omega Heathcare (OHI -4.5%), Health Care REIT (HCN -3.5%), Ventas(VTR -3.7%), HCP (HCP -3.6%), Medical Properties (MPW -4%), Healthcare Trust (HTA -4%), AvalonBay (AVB -2.7%), Essex Property (ESS -2.3%), Simon Property (SPG -2.3%), General Growth (GGP -2.2%), Kimco (KIM -2.9%), Inland Real Estate (IRC -2.9%), DDR (DDR -2.7%), Federal Realty Investment (FRT -2.6%), Public Storage (PSA -2%), Sovran Self Storage (SSS -2.7%), Boston Properties (BXP -2.8%), First Potomac (FPO -3.2%), Digital Realty Trust (DLR -1.9%), Hospitality Properties (HT -2.1%), Ashford (AHT -2.7%), STAG Industrial (STAG -3%), American Campus (ACC -2.9%).

    • Equity REITs have had as a big of a move as any sector over the past year as interest rates confounded the experts and continued to fall. WIth today's jobs report and a summer rate hike looking far more likely, fans of the income favorites are reassessing.

    • Notably lower today with the major averages in the green are retail REITs Realty Income (O -1.5%) and National Retail Properties (NNN -1.7%), and shopping-center REITs like Kimco (KIM -1.1%), Inland Real Estate (IRC -0.6%), Federal Realty (FRT -1%), and Brixmor (BRX -1.2%).
    • Investors may be mulling over a continuing string of disappointing retail earnings reports and plans for mass store closings from the likes of RadioShack and Staples.
    • Brixmor is also the subject of a downgrade from Buy to Neutral from UBS.

    • The broad market is quiet today following yesterday's big session, but the equity REIT sector has its eyes focused on rising Treasury yields, particularly in the belly of the curve where the 5-year yield is higher by 10 basis points on the session and all the way up to 1.64% (it was 1.3% at Thanksgiving).
    • Realty Income (O -3.6%), National Retail (NNN -2.4%), Health Care REIT (HCN -3.1%), LTC Properties (LTC -3.6%), Medical Properties (MPW -2.5%), Federal Realty (FRT -1.9%), Retail Opportunity (ROIC -1.1%), Chambers Street (CSG -1.8%).
