I think it's simply too early to tell how this is going to shake out in regards to REITs. We know we're going into a recession, and it's causing significant credit problems, though it's not credit-driven at its heart. I simply think there are too many unknowns to do much. VNQ is down about 24% from recent highs and down only 17% or so from the end of the year. That's a pretty light drop for the start of a recession.

Doling out money to businesses who then cut employment won't stimulate the economy as well as giving that money directly to people who will spend it.
