Morning Research: Two Harbors Investment, Hersha Hospitality Trust, CubeSmart, and Redwood Trust

LONDON, June 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The U.S. residential REIT sector has benefited from the ongoing recovery in the housing market which has been driven mainly by low mortgage rates and pent up demand. On the other, low mortgage rates created significant challenges for REITs focusing on mortgage backed securities (MBS) market. In recent weeks, though, mortgage rates have climbed amid concerns that the Federal Reserve will start easing its $85 billion a month bond buying program. The outlook for mortgage REITs is expected to improve if mortgage rates continue to rise. Finally, the outlook for commercial REITs is also projected to improve as the U.S. economy maintains its recovery course. On Monday, June 17, 2013, the REIT sector ended on a mixed note even as the broader market posted gains. The major movers in the sector included Two Harbors Investment Corp. (NYSE: TWO), Hersha Hospitality Trust (NYSE: HT), CubeSmart (NYSE: CUBE), and Redwood Trust Inc. (NYSE: RWT).  AAAResearchReports.com has released full comprehensive research on TWO, HT, CUBE, and RWT. These free technical analyses can be downloaded by signing up at
