    • Equity REITs had a nice run after bond yields peaked last year and began declining, but, says a now-cautious John Authers from the FT, that rally has turned into a stampede. And while the U.S. has led the way, U.K., European, and global REIT indexes have also had big gains.
    • Since October, the S&P 500 REITs index is up 19% vs. 1.4% for the S&P 500, and a 22.5% loss for the Alerian index of MLPs.
    • Valuation has now become a concern, with every REIT sector covered by SNL Securities trading at a premium to NAV (not the mortgage REITs though). Healthcare REITs - HCP, MPW, HTA, UHT, LTC, SBRA, OHI, HCN come to mind - are at a 25% premium.
    • SNL's Jason Lail dismissed some concerns, noting REITs trade at a 12.% premium to NAV, well within the 20% above and below NAV they typically range between. Also, fundamentals remain sound, with supply still constricted in many areas.
    • JPMorgan's Jason Ko notes pockets of value, particularly office REITs which trade a minimal premium. Boston Properties (BXP -0.1%) is a particular favorite. Others in the sector include: EQC, WRE, CSG, FPO, HIW.
    • Simon Property (SPG +0.2%) is Ko's biggest holding as mall bankruptcies and chain closings should leave the survivors stronger. His 2nd-largest holding is industrial player ProLogis (PLD +0.2%).

    • Noting the U.S.-listed REIT index remains 15% below its 2007 peak, Blackstone's (NYSE:BX) property arm chief Jon Gray says the private-equity firm is on the lookout for REITs to take private.
    • It wouldn't be the first time for Blackstone, which busily bought up real estate - Sam Zell's Equity Office Properties in 2007 being notable - prior to the financial crisis, and made a fortune despite the crash.

    • Apartment REITs (EQR, AVB, ESS, PPS, UDR, to name a few) have been the biggest winner so far this year, with total return of 20.29% In second place at 16.76% are self-storage REITs (PSA, SSS, CUBE, EXR).

    • A check of 900 corporate and public defined benefit plans between 1998 and 2011 found listed equity REITs - with an average annual net return of 11.31% - edged out private equity (11.1%) as offering the highest net returns of any asset class, according to a soon-to-be-released report from CEM Benchmarking.
    • Coming in third were real assets other than real estate - infrastructure, commodities, natural resources - at 9.85%.
    • Why start in 1998? That's when CEM first began separating REITs from stocks in its surveys.
    • Costs are of key import. The average fee for REITs over the period was 51.6 basis points vs. 238.3 bps for P-E, and 102.6 bps for "other" real assets. U.S. broad fixed income had the lowest costs - just 17.3 bps - but produced an average net return of just 6.56%.

    • The Guggenheim Emerging Markets Real Estate ETF (NYSEARCA:EMRE) will offer investors exposure to companies and REITs that develop, manage or own properties in emerging markets.
    • With an expense ratio of 0.65%, EMRE is on the more expensive end of real estate ETFs, but it is also the first fund to focus specifically on the opportunities in emerging markets.

    • Comparing "round-trip total returns" on 34 non-traded REITs with those of their publicly-listed peers, Green Street Advisors found the non-traded vehicles lagged the public ones by an average of 360 basis points per year.
    • It turns out the key selling point of non-traded REITs - since they're not priced on a regular basis (sometimes for years at a time), they lack volatility, and therefore allow investors to sleep better at night - is actually their weakness.
    • "The institutional investment community has convinced itself that the short-term volatility that necessarily accompanies liquidity equates to higher long-term risk," says Green Street. "In other words, liquidity is a bad thing ... Logic like that would conclude that the best way to avoid unpleasant medical news is to never visit the doctor.”
