Diamond Hill Large Cap Strategy stated the following regarding Extra Space Storage Inc. (NYSE:EXR) in its first quarter 2024 investor letter:

"Among our bottom Q1 contributors were real estate investment trusts (REITs) Extra Space Storage and SBA Communications, as well as Humana. Self-storage REIT Extra Space Storage performed well alongside most REITs at the end of 2023 as investors anticipated interest rate cuts and easier financial conditions in 2024. As this sentiment largely reversed in early 2024 against a resilient economic backdrop and still-high interest rates, real estate (and REITs broadly) were pressured in Q1. However, we believe the company has a high-quality, long-term franchise with an industry-leading operating platform that should position it well in the future."
