Pennsylvania REIT (PEI): Retail REITs Share Prices Continue to Fall

Pennsylvania REIT 

Mall REITs decline as more retailers close their doors.

According to reports, the news on the Toys “R” Us bankruptcy this week has sent the share price of mall REITs, such as Pennsylvania REIT (PEI), spiraling downward.

Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust is a publicly traded real estate investment trust that invests in shopping centers in the Mid-Atlantic states.

According to Business Insider, “At $9.48, shares {of PEI} are down 36% from a year ago and 63% from end of July 2016.”

With shares down, the company will likely need to preserve capital. Unfortunately, it appears likely that investors will see dividend cuts in the future.

With the decline of malls and shopping centers and the increase in online shopping, the future for Retail REITs, such as Pennsylvania REIT, is not bright.
