Managing Director of Real Estate Research Mark Rothchild has reported that Canadian REITS have posted small but positive returns in the first half of 2015. Although the overall return of +2.6% was somewhat below his expectations, he notes it compares positively with the broader market (as measured by the S&P/TSX Composite Index), which returned +0.9% over the same time period.
North American Portfolio Strategist Martin Roberge notes that Chinese authorities imposed trading halts in about half of A-listed Chinese shares, curbed short-selling activities and banned stock sales by major shareholders for six months.
The Greek Government is trying to kick the can once more by submitting a three-year bailout proposal to creditors. Martin believes this is Athens' last shot.
