re: does anybody invest in real estate stocks? (Posted on 11/19/12 at 11:16 am to trillhog)
I'm invested in some funds that utilize REITS. REITS, as with real estate, need to be looked at from a bottom up view as real estate is still very fragmented in terms of performance. On aggregate things are improving and I think you're biggest surprise on the upside to GDP the next couple quarters will be real estate (Still don't expect anything over a 1.5-2.0% real GDP figure though).
