3 Companies With Sustainable Dividend Yields Above 5%
Everyone loves a great deal, but in the stock market, it pays to be cautious as seemingly good deals may come with strings attached. When it comes to dividend hunting, many investors fall head-over-heels in love with companies with high dividend yields, even though the chase for high yields may result in investors losing their shirts. The most important aspect of a dividend is whether a company is able to sustain it. If the business is doing well and the company is generating cash in excess of what it needs for its operations, then there is a high chance that dividends can continue to be paid out. Here are three companies with sustainable dividend yields above 5% for investors to consider. VICOM Limited (SGX: V01) VICOM Limited is a company dealing with vehicle testing and inspection, and

My 12 Big Investment Mistakes

The Week in Numbers: Thailand Set to Become Hottest IPO Market in South-East Asia
Thailand is set to raise more than US$5 billion from initial public offerings (IPOs) in the second half of 2019. South-East Asia’s second-largest economy could see its largest IPO haul in six years, despite the economic jitters due to the inconclusive election results earlier this year. Tourism has been a key driver of growth for the Thai economy, with the country expecting a 7.5% increase in visitor arrivals this year. Thailand’s finance minister said that the country will introduce 20 billion baht (S$848.04 million) worth of economic measures to boost the consumption, tourism and help lower income earners.

Goodhart's Law and the folly of using Investment Benchmarks
Charles Goodhart is an Economics Professor from the London School of Economics. He said that "Any observed statistical regularity will tend to collapse once pressure is placed upon it for control purposes" One interpretation is that when a measurement becomes a target, it ceases to be a good measure. I was expecting to lose money when I ploughed my trainer's fees into the portfolio created by my third batch of students. After all, the Capricorn effect is long over and REITs have already completed a fairly good run in the markets.Furthermore, the worse decision we made as a class was to keep First Reit in our portfolio. It subsequently lost me about 7+% over the span of less than a month, likely due to the perceived problems from its sponsors. Interestingly, the class kept it in the po

3 Strategies To Beat The Market Again

If you are looking to repeat the splendid performance, here are some strategies for you to consider. Investors Takeaway: 3 Strategies If You Want To Beat The Market Again By DBS Take Advantage Of Interest In S-REITs With Fed Chairman Powell re-iterating the Fed’s dovish stance to be patient on rate hikes, interest in REITs should sustain going forward. The consensus now appears to be zero rate hikes for this year as the Fed continues to monitor how the economy evolves. Previously, DBS recommended investors to focus on large cap REITs in resilient segments such as retail and industrial (warehouse and business parks). DBS likes these large cap REITs f

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

Recent Action - Frasers Logistic Trust (FLT)
I wanted to take this time to quickly update on my latest position. After the recent run-up to most of the S-Reits which I believe is near valuation peak over the past 10 years (apart from 2015), I have decided to lock in my gains and divested Frasers Logistic Trust (FLT) yesterday at a price of $1.14. This divestment gave me a very decent return in terms of both dividend and capital appreciation for the past couple of years I had them. Other than the dividends I have been getting over these years, I have also participated in their rights last year which brings down my average price further.At $1.14, and assuming 1.78 cents/quarter annualized for the full year, it represents a dividend yield of 6.2% currently, which I think is a bit heavy (expensive) from a valuation perspective.

It is earning me a monthly dividend of $1,100 which helps to pay a lot of my bills. This is because of the merger earlier with Viva Industrial Trust where most of my holdings in Viva Industrial Trust is converted to ESR REIT (and coupled with my original holdings). It looks a lot so may pare down but let's take a look at the statistics first.With a yield of 8.37%, it is quite attractive.
