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

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

3 Strategies To Beat The Market Again
After ending 2018 on a bad note, the performance of the stock market in the first two months of 2019 has gave investors a reason to cheer. 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.

2 REITS That Have Delivered Strong Performances Recently
We are at the tail-end of the earnings season. Real estate investment trusts (REITs) have always been a favourite investment for risk-adverse investors because of their stable earnings qualities. Today, we’re looking at two REITs that have lived up to their investors’ expectations by delivering positive performances in their latest earnings updates. First up is Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust (SGX: BUOU), or FLIT, the first Singapore-listed real estate investment trust with a portfolio comprising 83 logistics and industrial properties concentrated within major logistics and industrial markets in Australia, Germany, and the Netherlands.

Accounting Demystified: Inventory and Costing
In the continuation of the accounting demystified series, it’s now time to look at the different methods of recording cost of goods sold when a company purchases inventory. Readers may be surprised to know that the method used can have significant consequences on the cost of goods sold recorded, which in turn affects the gross margin recorded by the business. I will also provide some background on the matching principle, which is a dominant feature in accounting. Matching principle The matching principle in accounting states that when any revenue is recognized as a result of a sale of goods and services, the business also has to recognize the associated expenses and costs that led to that sale. A simple example would be the sale of a bottle of shampoo for S$10. The business would hav

3 Reasons Investors Refuse to Sell Lousy Stocks
In my years of investing, one problem I’ve noticed among investors (myself included) is the tendency to hold onto stocks that have performed terribly over the years and whose businesses have deteriorated significantly over the same time period. Of course, none of us plans to go out and purchase a lemon, but even with the best and most water-tight investment thesis, things do go wrong now and then, and companies may fall on hard times and not recover. I previously wrote on why we should not retain deadwood in our portfolios, and here are three reasons investors persistently refuse to sell their losing stocks and do some much-needed housekeeping. 1. Regret aversion Regret aversion is a condition whereby someone avoids or delays making a decision so that they do not experience regret. F

The Comprehensive Investment Checklist: Part 5
Among the many investment books I have read, only a few have inspired me enough for me to write about them in some detail. One of them would be The Investment Checklist by Michael Shearn. This is part 5 of Shearn’s checklist, which continues with the remaining questions related to the measurement of operating and financial health of a business. (You can see the previous part here.) 1. What are the fundamentals of the business? “Fundamentals” is a general term used to indicate the overall financial health and general conditions surrounding the business. Investors can take this to mean the revenue, margin, and net profit trends; financial ratios; and also prospects for the business. It’s a catch-all term that allows investors to take a sweeping look at the characteristics

3 Things To Do If US-China Trade Talks Go Wrong
With the 90-day truce in the US-China trade war coming to a halfway mark, attention is now on the outcome of those talks.
