Sell Block: 4 REIT Stocks That Must Be Sold

Both press and analyst reports have made commercial real estate ground zero for the next sector collapse. Residential suffered its decline, the common wisdom says, and now office, retail and other properties are next.

Cramer disagrees, though. If the commercial side were in such dire straits, then why would the secondary offerings of Brandywine and Boston Properties do so well? Investors who got in on those are up 68% and 24%, respectively.


Regardless, a single stock isn’t the way to go if investors want to play this industry, Cramer said. They’re better off buying the iShares Dow Jones US Real Estate , which he called, “the most liquid play, and the best way to track the real estate investment trust group.” The IYR collectively mimics the most important names in the group, and that makes it the ideal proxy for commercial real estate.

But there are four REITS that investors should avoid at all costs. These are stocks that will do worse than the IYR regardless of how the sector performs. Watch the video to find out which they are.
