Big Wall Street bad guys such as GS try to scare investors to invest in reits so they can buy their cheap shares. In contrary, in 2008 GS coaxed investors to buy derivatives and GS short them at the same time. I'm sure after they buy enough reits shares or no one is willing to sell any more then their analysts will issue upgrade for reits with the reason reits provides solid dividend instead of saying the increase of interest would hurt reits like they said now.
"...in 2008 GS coaxed investors to buy derivatives and GS short them at the same time." And they near went out of business because the only thing that made money for them was that. Maybe the bulls in gs should've listened to the bears.
