Why did Vanguard Reit go down

Post by Bob5440 » Fri Apr 22, 2016 10:14 am

In the past few days it's gone down almost 4%. Anyone know a possible cause?

I have held it for many years. It's volatile. It reacts to many different factors. Industry news, interest rate expectations, etc. It's up quite a bit lately, so a four percent drop is not surprising.

Vanguard REIT Index Fund (VNQ) is down 2.31% in the past 5 days according to Google Finance.

YTD, it's up 2.16%.

VNQ dropped because interest-rate sensitive REITs dropped. There were "REIT are getting hammered by rising interest rate" articles popping up all over yesterday.

Vanguard REIT went down because it went up way too much about a month ago.

I didn't see anybody post though when it went up about 4% in a couple of days.

Yesterday, VNQ closed about where it was during the last week of March.

And to continue this thread:

Why did Vanguard REIT go UP today? Even bond funds went down today. ;)
