JPMorgan Chase & Co. JPM is slashing price targets on four popular real estate investment trusts (REITs) as recession fears continue to weigh heavily on the market. While REITs are often looked at as a resilient asset class and a hedge against inflation, the Real Estate Select Sector SPDR Fund XLRE is performing right in line with the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust SPY: both down about 21% for the year.
According to data from Benzinga Pro, JPMorgan updated its ratings on the four REITs as follows:
Extra Space Storage, Inc. EXR received an upgrade from neutral to overweight, but its price target was lowered from $224 per share to $193 per share.
Brixmor Property Group Inc BRX received an upgrade from neutral to overweight, with its price target lowered slightly from $27 per share to $25 per share.
Welltower Inc WELL received an upgrade from neutral to overweight, but its price target was lowered from $94 per share to $89 per share.
Medical Properties Trust Inc MPW was downgraded from overweight to neutral and its price target was lowered from $24 per share to $18 per share, which still predicts upside of nearly 23% over the next 12 months.
