Real Estate Investment Trusts Real in profits

In the post-crises era, REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts) profits are driven by low-cost debt capital and high commercial real-estate values.

Eurozone Industrial Output is shining

Output at the eurozone’s mines, factories, and utilities rose at the fastest annual pace in more than five years in May, a clear indication that the area’s economic recovery is picking up.
