Why You Should be Wary of Private Placements For REITs
Private placements are a method that real estate investment trusts (REITs) use to raise funds for growth. In essence, private placements involve the sale of new units to privileged investors, usually at a discount to the recent market price of the REIT’s units. Although private placements are a quicker way for REITs to raise funds, it can also have a negative impact on a REIT’s existing unitholders. Depending on the discount rate, and the eventual use of the capital raised, private placements may end up having a negative outcome on a REIT’s distributions in the future. Diluting interest When a REIT’s units are sold at a discount to recent market prices in a private placement, it will naturally dilute the interests of the REIT’s existing unitholders. As retail

Do Sponsors of REITs Really Have Minority Shareholder Interests at Heart?
Real estate investment trusts (REITs) in Singapore often have a larger company as a sponsor. The sponsor is often also the major shareholder of the REIT, and is sometimes related to the REIT’s manager. A major role of the sponsor is to provide a REIT with the rights of first refusal on properties that are owned by the sponsor. Although having a sponsor is beneficial to a REIT for the pipeline of acquisition opportunities, there remain potential conflicts of interest between a sponsor and the REIT’s minority shareholders that could result in minority shareholders getting the shorter end of the stick. Here are some possible conflicts that investors should be aware of. Sponsors prioritise REIT Manager’s interests over minority shareholders Conflicts of interest arise when sp

Top 10 Singapore REITs that made you money if you invested from their IPOs (updated 2019)
In early 2017, Sabana REIT has been getting a lot of attention when a small group of unitholders moved to kick out the manager for delivering poor performance since its IPO in 2010. Early investors who bought Sabana at an IPO price of S$1.05 are now sitting on huge losses – Sabana last traded at just 41.5 cents per share at time of writing. If we look at the history, Sabana REIT isn’t alone. There are several other Singapore REITs (S-REITs) like Saizen REIT, MacarthurCook Industrial REIT and Allco REIT that have run into trouble before and caused a dent in Singapore’s REIT sector. Despite some casualties, Singapore’s REIT market remains vibrant – largely thanks to the majority of S-REITs that continue to deliver good results to income investors.

S-REIT Report Card: Here’s How Singapore REITs Performed In FY2018
The US Federal Reserve has indicated that 2019 will likely see slower interest rate hikes. This comes on the back of mounting macroeconomic uncertainties, that has seen investors turn to less risky investments. This may benefit REITs in three ways: # 1 Traditionally, REITs take on a lot of debt to fund its capital-intensive property investments. Slower interest rate hikes in 2019 will ease the growing pressure on REITs, in terms of debt repayment. # 2 Markets are efficient – which means that prices of REITs would have taken into consideration that rate hikes would continue as normal. This stance of slowing down the interest rate hikes in 2019 is new information for the market, and may give REITs a boost. (Do note that most of this new information should already be priced into the markets

2019 Investment Strategy: 2 Trade Diversion Plays To Shield From Impact Of Trade War
In this article, we highlight two trade diversion plays that DBS recommends investors in 2019. Looming Danger Of US-China Trade War The ongoing trade disputes between the US and China will affect export dependent economies such as Singapore. Singapore’s manufacturing base is largely focused on high value-added intermediate products, and a large proportion is shipped to China for subsequent processing. However, as the trade war is largely bilateral in nature, there could be some degree of trade diversion, which could benefit Southeast Asia’s economies. Singapore is in a unique position given its regional hub status, a comprehensive Free Trade Agreement network and higher level of innovation and business sophistication. Being a regional shipping and financial hub, Singapore could also se

Delay paying off your Mortgage Early, Build Liquid Assets till Your Debt is Less than All your Liquid Assets.
There is this deep, personal finance topic that a lot of every day people are trying to figure out that perhaps some financial bloggers do not know. And once they know it they will spam the financial blogosphere with article. The topic: should I pay off my HDB loan early? It didn’t occur to me that this was a big topic until I was asked quite a fair bit by people I first met. Not the ridiculous what Miles versus Cash back competition. It is like asking which fragrance you prefer for the mothballs you put into your toilet bowl. Then you realize they all earn from any of the mothballs that you buy.

Investing in Parent Stock vs Subsidiary Stock
When 2 large businesses are combined, it does not mean it would become a giant stock. Capitaland + Ascendas-Singbridge of Temasek are merged into the 9th largest global property investment company (Asian largest), 51% shares is under control of Temasek.   Before merging, Capitaland has been a slower growth giant stock due to its large size. An investor may not need to consider large parent company. Instead, its subsidiary company with much smaller size could be more profitable, eg. Capitamall Trust (SGX: C38U) of Capitaland and Ascendas Reit (SGX: A17U) are stronger REIT / property giant stocks than its parent company stock.   A giant is not defined by its size of business, but by its internal strength of strong fundamental.

3 Singapore REITs Institutional Investors Have Been Selling
There are many ways to find investment insights. Some useful ways are to screen for stocks or to look at a list of stocks near their 52-week lows to sieve out potential bargains. Studying what institutional investors have been buying or selling is another avenue. Institutional investors are typically large investment organisations, such as hedge funds, mutual funds, unit trust companies, sovereign wealth funds, insurance companies and so on. These investors tend to possess vastly greater resources than individual investors like you and me when researching stocks. Hence, it may be useful to keep a close eye on what they are doing, as a way to generate ideas.
