iShares Cohen & Steers Realty Majors Index Fund (ICF) -0.8%
Real estate investment trusts are running into headwinds despite the generally up market. Though relatively stable in terms of real estate-related options, REITs and other aspects of this sector should be approached with caution. Housing remains one of the trickier corners of the market to tame and looking ahead, companies underlying ICF and homebuilder ETFs like the iShares Dow Jones U.S. Home Construction Index Fund (ITB) (ITB) could be in for jittery action.
