A A A

Compiled by Luis Gonzalez: The following is a list of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or REITs, that have seen improving analyst sentiment over the last three months.

Analyst ratings are presented on a linear scale, where ratings close to 1 indicate "Strong Buy" while ratings close to 5 indicate "Strong Sell". All of the stocks in this list have seen their ratings move closer towards 1 over the last 3 months, i.e. improving analyst sentiment.

Although analysts still remain cautious on most of these names, the improvement in ratings suggest that they think at least some of the bad news is being priced in. Do you agree?

Analyst ratings sourced from Reuters, short float and performance data sourced from Finviz.
