High Yield Dividend Stocks are Not Cheap, Maybe More Pain Ahead, Maybe Not
(Click to see my Dividend Stock Tracker) Most readers would know that I maintain a list of very popular high yield dividend stocks in Singapore. You can see the dividend yield, and how the dividend yield fluctuates as price changes. You can see its EV/EBITDA and its net debt to asset, to assess how leveraged they are. For some time, I kept getting the high yield are not cheap argument. Perhaps it depends on the context of what other stocks they are comparing to. Or the time period they are compared to. Interest rate is rising, so what is an average yield in the past, say a 5-5.5% dividend yield for Singapore based office properties, 6.5-7.5% dividend yield for industrial properties are not considered fair value. However, high yield dividend stocks, if they do not have a business behind it,

[2018 Edition] Complete Guide To Start Your REITs Investing Journey In Singapore
Singaporeans’ fascination for property investments stem from its meteoric rise since our island nation gained independence. Even in a more developed property market we live in today, en-bloc sales continue to fuel renewed frenzies in properties. Even on the back numerous property cooling measures enforced to reduce speculation in residential properties, sky-high prices mean that property investments remain out of reach for ordinary Singaporeans. This is where real estate investment trusts (REITs) play their part – allowing ordinary investors to access property investments in Singapore and other major property markets by pooling our monies to invest in a diversified portfolio of properties.   Find Out More What Are REITs? 7 Types Of REITs Listed In Singapore How To Start Investing

2 REITS to Buy and Hold Forever
With more than 40 REITs and stapled trusts in Singapore, finding one that I want to buy and hold forever is no easy task. To qualify for my portfolio, the REIT must demonstrate: (1) an established track record; (2) a resilient and diverse portfolio of properties; (3) prudent debt management; (4) properties with the propensity to appreciate in value; and (5) sound capital recycling strategies. The strict criteria will inevitably exclude most REITs in Singapore. However, despite my strict requirements, I believe I have found two REITs that fit the bill. Fortune Real Estate Investment Trust (SGX:F25U) is the first one. This REIT invests primarily in sub-urban shopping malls in Hong Kong. It has its main listing in Hong Kong, with a secondary listing in the Singapore stock market. The REIT cu

3 REITs That Have Grown Their Distributions Per Unit For Five Straight Years
Since its introduction in Singapore in 2002, real estate investment trusts (REITs) have become one of the most popular investment vehicles. Not only do REITs provide investors exposure to real estate, they are also more liquid and have lower entry capital requirements than buying properties outright. With more than 40 REITs and stapled trusts listed in Singapore, investors are certainly spoilt for choice. However, not all REITs can deliver the same returns. In this article, I want to highlight three REITs that have managed to deliver increasing distributions to unitholders over the last five years. Fortune Real Estate Investment Trust (SGX: F25U) is a Hong Kong- listed REIT that has a secondary listing in Singapore. It invests primarily in sub-urban retail malls located in Hong Kong. The R

Portfolio Update 31 May 2018
So it was the magical month of May again. Those traders who believe in "Sell in May and stay away" and have sold their shares at the beginning of the month would have told their peers "see, I told you so....", but as a die-hard dividend investor I have not done it.Equity market did not do well in May. Lead by US, indices dropped in May. the Malaysian election result, the Trumpf-Kim summit, US-Sino trade war etc all did not affect the market positively. As at end of May, STI dropped 185.75, or 5.14% from a month ago. My portfolio dropped less than the index. Its value decreased 2.84% for the month.

S-REIT Report Card: Here’s How Singapore REITs Performed In First Quarter 2018
Real estate investment trusts (REITs) are an asset class that investors in Singapore are highly interested in. The opportunity to own properties, not only in Singapore, but the rest of the world is enticing. This is coupled with relatively high yields – returning close to 6.5% per annum in distributions currently. Since the launch of CapitaLand Mall Trust, the first Singapore-listed REIT, in 2002, Singapore has gone on to see its REITs and business trusts market grow in breath and depth, to a combined market capitalisation of close to $100 billion today.

3 Things To Like About Ascendas Real Estate Investment Trust’s FY17/18 Results
With a market capitalisation of close to S$8 billion, Ascendas Real Estate Investment Trust (SGX: A17U) is the largest REIT listed in Singapore. This is no mean feat, considering that Singapore is home to more than 40 REITs and property trusts. Last month, the REIT released its earnings update for the fiscal year ended 31 March 2018 (FY17/18). There were some impressive numbers to note. Firstly, gross revenue climbed 3.8% to S$862.1 million. Net property income grew 3.0%, and most importantly for unitholders, distribution per unit (DPU) rose 1.6% to 15.99 Singapore cents. However, beyond these headline numbers, there are, in fact, many other positives to like about the REIT’s results.

We need a proxy as comparison as the merger helps to grow the new REIT to a much larger size (although not as big as Ascendas REIT). Let's take a look at the statistics.With a yield of 5.90%, it is the lowest yielding industrial REIT in SGX. Moreover it is trading at 26% premium to its NAV, probably due to its size and stability of returns over the years. Gearing is at a good 40.2% although it is not easy to grow any further.With the impending me

Portfolio Update 30 April 2018
Global equity market seemed to shrug off the bad news in previous month (Sino-US looming trade war, Middle East crisis, interest rate hike etc.). The positive turn of the relationship between the two Korean governments, and the good corporate earning news push the market upwards.Good economic data boosted investors' sentiment in Singapore. STI performed very well in the month of April. As at today, STI rose 185.96 points, or 5.42% compared to last month. Unfortunately, my portfolio did not perform as well. Its value only rose 2.48% for the month.I sold off the Xinhua Port shares obtained from Pan U spin-off. I also received some shares from Global Investment Limited through scrip dividend scheme. No other trade was done.Total dividend received this month was S$9,918, about 60% from shares

6 SG Stocks To Hedge Against US-China Trade War
The impact of a US-China trade war will be prominent, especially for a small and open economy like Singapore. Singapore’s electronics industry would be the greatest loser if the trade tariffs discussed by China and the USA get implemented. However, RHB believes that various other sectors have been negatively impacted by the uncertainties in the global economic environment. In particular, the consumer and real estate sectors in Singapore should still be buoyant even if a full-blown US-China trade war sparks off. If you are looking for a portfolio that hedges against any US-China trade tantrums, RHB recommends investing in Singapore companies with clear visibility of earnings growth and potential to deliver steady cashflow.

How Much Has Asendas Real Estate Investment Trust Grown Since Its IPO?
Since its listing back in November 2002, Ascendas Real Estate Investment Trust (SGX: A17U) has managed to actively grow its portfolio to become the largest REIT in Singapore’s stock market today. This is by no means a small feat, considering that Singapore is home to around 40 REITs and property trusts. However, size is by no means the be all and end all. The ability of the trust to grow its distributions to unit holders and its book value on a per unit basis is perhaps of even more importance. As I did with a few other REITs in previous articles, I want to take a look at three key performance indicators of Ascendas REIT that will give us more colour on whether the trust has grown its value for unitholders since its listing.

There are more than 10 REITs that are set to report quarterly earnings next week. These include Suntec REIT (SGX: T82U), Mapletree Greater China Commercial Trust (SGX: RW0U) and Far East Hospitality Trust (SGX: Q5T). Amongst the blue-chip REITs, Ascendas REIT (SGX: A17U) will post first-quarter results on Monday. In January, the owner of Aperia and One-North posted a slight dip in third-quarter distribution per unit. It said it was due to a one-off property tax refund the previous year. CapitaLand Commercial Trust (SGX: C61U) announced a 13% fall in distributions per unit in January. The commercial landlord said net property income fell 4% after it sold its stake on One George Street, Golden Horseshoe Car Park and Wilkie Edge. CCT will report first-quarter numbers on 24 April.
