This week has seen another noticeable decline in REIT stocks and in the main indices S&P500 and Dow Jones Industrial average. It was like what had happened the previous week, but on a smaller scale. For at least two REIT benchmarks — MSCI US REIT (NYSE:^RMZ) and Vanguard ETF (NYSEARCA:VNQ), a large part of that decline occurred on September 1.
