1. Trends of REIT stock prices(July 2014)
◆stock market
Early in the month, the Japanese stock market rose, mainly reflecting the favorable turn in the forecast of Business Conditions DI in the Bank of Japanís Tankan survey and improvement in employment statistics in the United States, but fell back down later due to rising credit uncertainty at some banks in Europe, among other factors. In the middle of the month, there were occasions when the market declined sharply, for instance because of the downing of the Malaysian Airlines flight or the rising geopolitical risk in the Middle East. Towards the end of the month, however, stock prices remained solid, following strong economic indicators in the United States and changes in the exchange rate toward a weaker yen, etc.
The Nikkei Stock Average at the end of July was 15,620.77, up 3.03% from the end of June.
◆REIT Index
The J-REIT market followed a downward trend early in the month, reflecting rising long-term interest rates in the United States as concerns about the tapering of quantitative easing by the FRB (Federal Reserve Board) increased. In the middle of the month, there was an occasion when the investor sentiment was adversely affected temporarily by the downing of the Malaysian Airlines flight and the rising geopolitical risk in the Middle East. From late-July to the end of the month, however, the market stayed on an upward trend, as long-term interest rates remained stable at a low level in Japan and the United States, in addition to the solid performance of the Japanese stock market.
The Tokyo Stock Exchange REIT Index was 2,749.06 (including dividends) at the end of July, up 1.41% from the end of June.
