    • The major averages are having a solid day, with nearly all S&P sectors lit up green, but the REITs - eyeing a ten basis point pop higher in the 10-year Treasury yield - are lower across the board. Boosting rates is good news on Greek debt negotiations and a 4% rally in European stocks.
    • The IYR is down 0.6%, bringing its  loss YTD to 3%, about 600 basis points worse than the S&P 500.

    • A weak 30-year bond auction has long-term Treasury yields on the move higher, with the 10-year up five basis points to 1.96%. One also can't help but notice a recent uptick in capital raising among the equity REITs.

    • "This is taking the number two and number three net-lease REITs and creating kind of a game-over, category-killer in the sector," says Cole Real Estate (COLE +8.7%) CEO Marc Nemer of the deal to sell itself to American Realty Capital Properties (ARCP -1.5%) for $11.2B in cash and stock. The combined company will push into first place in size in the popular triple-net-lease sector, surpassing Realty Income (O +0.7%).
    • ARCP's acquisition-happy chief Nicholas Schorsch in the past has typically raised private money for non-traded REITs and then sold the portfolios to ARCP in order to cash out his investors, but this is a massive public deal. "How many REITs have the ability to raise both public and private capital," he says. "The ability for us to acquire non-traded REITs, either whole or in part, is only increased" by this Cole deal.
    • S&P 500 inclusion next? The investor presentation (slide 8) notes the combined company's market cap will be larger than index constituents Kimco Realty and Macerich.
    • Under the impression the CEOs of the two companies hated each other, SNL Financial's Jake Mooney wants the backstory. Earlier this year: Still a non-traded REIT, Cole rebuffs ARCP's buyout attempt for $9.7B.
    • Earlier today: The deal announcement.
    • Other triple-net players: National Retail (NNN +1.2%), W.P. Carey (WPC +1%), Spirit Realty (SRC +3.2%), EPR Properties (EPR +0.8%).

    Gramercy Property Trust (GPT +1%) moves about 3% off the session low as the earnings call/business plan update reveals a management focused and executing on its plan to turn the company into a pure play equity REIT. The implied cap rate (pg. 27-31) of net lease companies (O, WPC, NNN, LXP, EPR, SRC, ARCP,GTY) of 5%-6.5% is far below the 7.5%-8.5% Gramercy is closing deals at - "(the) widest arbitrage in our experience."
