NEW YORK–For the last two months REITs have begun to outperform the larger US equities market, after being  pummelled by investors for two years.

But besides their acquisition potential, is there another lesson to be drawn from their two-year journey? Yes, according to Marc Halle, head of Global Real Estate Securities at PGIM Real Estate, which is this: REITs are good forecasters of the direction of real estate values and they are indicating that valuations will eventually drop in the private market.
