Weekly insights on current research in the commercial real estate industry from HFF Managing Director of Research Jimmy Hinton. View Daily Rates on the HFF website. Eighty years ago, Time publisher Henry Luce purchased Life magazine. Intending to switch the periodical from an illustrated news weekly to a pure-play photo essay, Luce took an extraordinary risk with an already successful model. Amidst the Great Depression and only a few years prior to WWII, Life evolved quickly to an overwhelming success. Whether President-Elect Trump, his administration and a Republican-controlled Congress will be able to convert an existing model of success into an even more impressive outcome remains to be determined; but, the investing public has clearly wagered a change in tactics will not befall the domestic or global economy with a reversal in fortune. Late last week, the yield on... [Read More]

Forty years ago, a movie about an underdog boxer in Philadelphia became the ultimate underdog. Rocky, written and starring Sylvester Stallone as main character Rocky Balboa, premiered this week in 1976 and went on to win three, Oscars, Best Film, Best Director and Best Editing, out of its 10 nominations. The little film that could had a rumored budget of under $1 million dollars and, to date, has grossed more than $225 million. The pop culture phenomena that is Rocky has crossed multiple generations and driven the original film and its six sequels to box-office success with a total franchise gross of more than $1 billion dollars (and counting). Philadelphia in the 1970s, like Balboa, was an underdog due to decades of turbulence from crime, corruption and civil unrest. Though, like Balboa, the city endured... [Read More]

In the first full business day following Donald Trump's election to the Presidency, the mood in Qatar reflects a calm temperance. In fact, to a handful of them, there is little surprise, as they invoke the strength of the Leave campaign in June to the surprise of the urban realms within the U.K. The sense of calm is palpable, with little scurry or scramble to cover currency and interest rate positions in the wake of the election – at least within the investor community we met with. It would appear the perception of the United States as a "store of value" remains unscathed. Neither cautious nor excited, the investors we met with today represented a wide range... [Read More]
