Barron’s mentions:

The publication sees an opportunity in apartment REIT stocks with home prices and mortgage rates on the rise. Apartment REITs are noted to be trading at a 21% discount to the value of their underlying assets, compared to 3% a year ago. The recommendation is to look at large-cap REITs with strong balance sheets, good management teams, and safe dividends with a focus in geographic areas of the country seeing strong apartment occupancy rates.

AvalonBay Communities (NYSE:AVB), Equity Residential (NYSE:EQR), Camden Property Trust (NYSE:CPT), Mid-America Apartment Communities (MAA), Apartment Income REIT (NYSE:AIRC), and UDR (UDR) all make the list.
