    • Even as public market valuations have pulled back, says Citi's Michael Bilerman, private market pricing has remained strong, widening the gap between price and value.
    • While fund flows are a negative, Bilerman notes an uptick in interest from market generalists, suggesting they're beginning to spot value in the sector.
    • Healthcare: The REITs here are particularly sensitive to rising rates given high external growth expectations and accretive "spread" investing. Bilerman has Overweights in large-cap Ventas (NYSE:VTR) and small-cap Sabra Health Care (NASDAQ:SBRA).
    • Lodging: Supply is largely intact and demand continues to improve, hopefully setting up a strong H2. He continues to favor C-corps like Hilton Worldwide (NYSE:HLT), but also has Overweight positions on Host Hotels (NYSE:HST) and LaSalle Hotel (NYSE:LHO).
    • Office/Industrial: This sector offers particular opportunity for outperformance, and he prefers urban names, Boston Property (NYSE:BXP), SL Green (NYSE:SLG), and Vornado (NYSE:VNO), and only select suburban names Parkway (NYSE:PKY) and Mack Cali (NYSE:CLI). In industrial, he's Overweight EastGroup (NYSE:EGP), Prologis (NYSE:PLD), and DCT Industrial (NYSE:DCT).
    • Apartments: Growth remains strong and valuations attractive. He's Overweight large caps AvalonBay (NYSE:AVB), Equity Residential (NYSE:EQR), and UDR, as well as value name Camden Property Trust (NYSE:CPT).
    • Retail: He's still Overweight Class A mall REITs, but is getting more bullish on strip mall names, with Kimco (NYSE:KIM), Acadia (NYSE:AKR), and Weingarten (NYSE:WRI) upgraded to Buy. Other top picks are General Growth (NYSE:GGP), Simon Property (NYSE:SPG), Kite Realty (NYSE:KRG), and Forest City (NYSE:FCE.A).

    • Manulife (NYSE:MFC) has the greatest sensitivity to rising rates of all the picks on the list, says Barclays, which also sees upside potential even before rate liftoff, particularly as the insurer deploys excess capital.
    • The Street is underestimating MGIC Investment's (NYSE:MTG) earnings growth trajectory in a subnormalized loss environment.
    • Nasdaq OMX (NASDAQ:NDAQ) remains a top pick thanks to: 1) attractive valuation; 2) recurring and diversified revenue base; 3) strong free cash flow supporting capital returns.
    • Prologis (NYSE:PLD) has strong earnings growth and compelling valuation compared to net asset value.
    • Citigroup (NYSE:C) should outperform its big-cap peers thanks to: 1) Finally meaningful capital deployment after this year's CCAR; 2) increased focus on execution in core markets; 3) big footprint in faster-growing emerging markets; 4) utilization of the $48B DTA; 5) continued reduction in Citi Holdings.
    • Also making the list: Prudential Financial (NYSE:PRU) and SVB Financial (NASDAQ:SIVB).

    • Recapturing what was lost during the West Coast port strike, U.S. container traffic jumped 19.2% Y/Y in March and 6.6% Y/Y in April, notes SunTrust's Ki Bin Kim, still bullish on industrial fundaments, though seeing a potential slowdown in China as a risk.
    • He sees Prologis (NYSE:PLD) as one of the cheapest blue-chip REITs and rates it a Buy with $50 price target. Also rated Buy is First Industrial Realty Trust (NYSE:FR). Rated at Neutral is DCT Industrial Trust (NYSE:DCT).
