    Anyone have a read on why this is cratering so much?

    My guess is that the cratering is primarily due to QE Infinity kicking in. Ben is buying mortgages thus reducing the spread between short & long term rates and therefore the REITs are expected to do less well. That's the best that I can figure out anyway.
