The retail property sector has been under pressure since the economy started to struggle on the heals of the housing market collapse which began in mid-2006. This cyclical downturn was triggered by a combination of factors leading the the recession which quickly spilled over to a decline in consumer confidence. Since the retail industry accounts for some 70% of GDP, the decline in sales helped drag the overall economy down with it. To provide some insights into the market's outlook for the retail sector, it is useful to track REIT stock price trends over time. This page presents a graphical summary of retail REIT performance, plotting closing stock prices from 1994 though November 2009. To complement the public side of the retail industry, this page also plots the private analog; the NCREIF Index. Where appropriate, the retail data are plotted at the sub-category level ranging from super-regional malls to neighborhood strip cetners.
