It’s a positive, generally, for the REIT sector that these 4 hit higher highs this week even as the big name tech and social media stocks have failed to achieve that kind of out- performance. That these real estate investment trusts are showing this kind of strength in advance of probable rate hikes by the Fed is at the very least, favorable. Whether such action can be sustained is another question, naturally.

Shareholders in these real estate investment trusts are being rewarded for their patience and belief. In an environment of uncertainty about how long the Fed will continue to raise rates and at what pace, these companies keep finding buyers to stay ahead of the crowd.

There are no promises made that this can continue, of course, and past performance is not a guarantee of future success. Nonetheless, take a look at the new high prices on these charts:

S. government and its defense/IT contractors. With a market capitalization of $3.1 billion, the REIT trades with a price-earnings ratio of 30 and a forward p/e of 25.
