3 Singapore REITs That Have the Firepower to Make Yield-Accretive Buys
The fastest way for real estate investment trusts (REITs) to reward unitholders with increasing distributions is through acquisitions. A prudent acquisition can help increase distribution per unit (DPU) much faster than organic growth in rents. With that in mind, I did a little digging to find REITs within Singapore that were best-positioned to make yield-accretive acquisitions in the future. In my research, I screened for REITs that had access to cheap debt (preferably below 3%) and had low gearing ratios (preferably below 33%). Here are three of the top REITs I found that fit that criteria. 1. Ascott Residence Trust (SGX: A68U) Sponsored by property giant, CapitaLand Limited (SGX: C31), Ascott Residence Trust is in a great position to continue making yield-accretive acquisitions. As of

5 Singapore REITs That Clocked Up Impressive Double-Digit Returns Year-to-Date
Investors who are looking for exposure to real estate investment trusts (REITs) often look for a myriad of factors when selecting one, such as the sustainability of the distribution per unit (DPU), asset type, occupancy level, and potential growth prospects, to name a few.

3 Blue Chips To Long Amidst The Current Correction
As the US and China returned to trade barbs over bilateral trade, global markets enter a new phase of correction. Not being spared, the local Straits Times Index (STI) also reversed quickly from above 3,350 by end-July to 3,170 level in a matter of one week.  Despite the headlines, it was a perfect storm in the making for a pull-back or stock market correction. Investors needed to readjust their hopes for a quick deal between the US and China after both agreed to restart trade talks during the G20 meeting last month.  That said, the STI has returned to a much more attractive level and hence opportunistic value investors should pick up some blue chips along the way. Here are three blue chips to long amidst the current correction.  CapitaLand Following its $11 billion mega merger with Asc

US-China Trade Talks Renewal Fueled Rally
After the last trade talks fell apart in May 2019, US President Donald Trump and China’s President Xi Jinping finally agreed to revive talks after speaking to each other at the G20 summit in Japan. Trump agreed to hold off from imposing the additional 25 percent tariff on $300 billion worth of Chinese goods and ease certain restrictions on tech company Huawei. As a gesture of goodwill, China agreed to make unspecified new purchases of US agricultural products. The US-China trade ceasefire provided some much-needed relief and sent all three major US indices to close at record-high levels in a holiday-shortertened session ahead of US Independence Day.
