CMBS Delinquency Rate Surges for the Third Month; Nears All-Time High
At one point in June, it appeared that a new all-time high for CMBS delinquencies would be reached. However, when the final numbers were posted, the July 2012 high remains the peak for the time being (10.34%). According to Trepp, the leading provider of information, analytics, and technology to the CMBS, commercial real estate, and banking markets, the CMBS Delinquency Rate in June is 10.32%, a jump of 317 basis points over the May number.

About 5% of that number represents loans that are 30 days delinquent, while another 3.2% are now 60 days delinquent. See full report here.

Baird/STR Hotel Stock Index Falls 5.3% in June; Rising COVID-19 Cases Likely the Cause
The Baird/STR Hotel Stock Index fell 5.3% in June to a level of 3,060. Year to date through the first six months of 2020, the stock index was down 41.9%. "Hotel stocks were volatile in June as the broader reopening trade continued into the early part of the month; the Hotel Brand and Hotel REIT Sub-Indices were up more than 19% and nearly 37%, respectively, through six trading days,” Michael Bellisario, senior hotel research analyst and director at Baird, said.

“However, the momentum reversed course, and hotel stocks finished the month approximately 5% lower as rising coronavirus case counts in several states dampened investor sentiment and negatively impacted travel-related stocks.” See full report here.
