Real estate investment trust (REIT) Simon Property Group (NYSE: SPG) owns malls, and that's been a rough business lately, with retail store closures and bankruptcies filling the headlines. That trend even has a catchy, and frightening, nickname: the "retail apocalypse." Investor concern over the retail apocalypse is one of the key reasons why Simon's stock has fallen by a third from its 2016 highs.

It also happens to own well located assets, and as the old saying goes: location, location, location.
