Oil, gas and China have made the headlines recently for poor performance.  Here is a list of how other US industries have done during the past 3 months, year to date (YTD), and annualized 5 year.  While real estate (and Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs)) are down over the last 3 month and year, they are ahead of the broader market.  It is no surprise that oil and gas have lost the most over all three periods – basic material, technology and industrials have also had a rough 3 months.
