Dramatic Buying Opportunity for REIT Stocks?

RSS

SNL Financial just posted a piece illustrating how dramatic the stock price fall was for REITs relative to the underlying property values of those firm's assets.

It seems, in part, REITs get treated like financial stocks in moments such as this, which is why REIT shares have fallen even by an even greater magnitude than broader indices.

However, if SNL's NAV estimates are accurate, there are now some huge opportunities here to buy REIT shares at a discount.

According to SNL, "All U.S. REITs fell to a discount to NAV of 22.62% as of Aug. 8 from a premium of 1.4% as of July 29."
