Battling stagflation

Furthermore, according to Jefferies analyst Jonathon Peterson, REITs within a data center, industrial and senior housing sub-sectors could be best suited for a stagflation environment. 

Moreover, an inflation-driven recession may hurt occupancy rates; however, focusing on high-quality REITs with strong cash positions and high occupancy rates could yield the best results.
