When the 50-day moving average crosses above the 200-day moving average, it’s considered bullish by technical analysts. The price has finally stopped going down over the short term and is headed back up enough to take it back above the long-term trend.
Some analysts refer to this as a golden cross, but whatever it’s called, it’s a generally positive signal for real estate investment trusts (REITs). Heading into the release of the consumer price index on Tuesday, things could change. If inflation numbers are high enough for the Federal Reserve to raise rates further and faster, that might negatively affect this sector.
In the meantime, here are the three REITs showing golden cross chart patterns:
CubeSmart (NYSE:CUBE) is a self-storage real estate investment trust with more than 1,000 properties across the U.S. Its market capitalization is $10.4 billion. With a price-earnings ratio of 40, the REIT trades at 3.63 times its book value. Funds from operations (FFO) were up 28% in 2022 and up 19% over the past five years. CubeSmart pays a dividend of 4.27%.
Here’s the daily chart showing the 50/200 daily moving average crossover:
NetSTREIT Corp. (NYSE:NTST) is a smaller REIT with a market capitalization of $1.07 billion. The Dallas-based company owns single-tenant net-lease properties. NetSTREIT trades at 2% discount from its book value with funds from operations from 2022 coming in at 222%. The company is paying a dividend of 4.13%.
The daily price chart looks like this:
Prologis Inc. (NYSE:PLD) is one of the major publicly traded real estate investment trusts with a market capitalization of $120.77 billion. The price-earnings ratio is 29, and it trades at 2.69 times its book value. Funds from operations in 2022 were 96% and over the past five years were up by 11.7%. This industrial REIT pays a 2.47% dividend.
