From warehouses to office space, real-estate markets are getting turned upside down. These are the new winners and losers.

Offices, hotels, and malls were emptied by the coronavirus.

Big investors have been slashing valuations on stakes in private companies like Palantir and Airbnb. But bankers say there could be a potential quick fix.

Some of the world's most well-known private companies have lost value since the pandemic's start, according to their mutual-fund backers, securities filings show.  Even before the pandemic hit, a survey of venture capitalists found that a majority believed unicorns were "significantly" overvalued.
