Comparison of REITs with overseas assets vs REITs that focus on Singapore
REITs with overseas assets has become increasingly popular and have proliferated on the SGX in recent years. These REITs span across all sub-sectors from classes from office, retail, industrial to even data centres. As an investor, what are the things to look out for before investing in REITs with overseas assets vs those that focus on Singapore only? We won’t mention REITs that have a mix of Singapore and overseas assets, such as Suntec REIT, because they are more difficult to analyze compared to those solely with foreign or Singapore assets. This difficulty arises because the local/foreign asset mix has a differing impact on performance, risk and returns. First up, let’s see which REITs have solely foreign assets and which only have Singapore assets. Singapore Foreign Office Ca

The Week Ahead Can Keppel Corporation Draw A Line Under Brazil?
The Singapore earnings season goes into full swing next week with first-quarter numbers from Keppel Corporation (SGX: BN4). In the final quarter of 2017, the industrial conglomerate posted its first ever quarterly loss. It was pushed into the red after booking a one-off penalty from a bribery case in Brazil. The company will hope that this will draw a line under its offshore and marine business. Singapore Exchange (SGX: S68) will report third-quarter numbers. In the second quarter, higher marker activity lifted earnings from equities and fixed-income trading. SGX was also able to keep expenses under control, which helped to boost earnings. In the fourth quarter CapitaLand Mall Trust (SGX: C38U) raised its distribution per unit by 0.7%, thanks to an improvement in gross revenues. The com

Can CapitaLand Mall Trust Outperform the Singapore Stock Market?
CapitaLand Mall Trust (SGX: C38U) is Singapore’s first and largest retail real estate investment trust (REIT). Some of the malls in its portfolio include Tampines Mall, Junction 8, and Plaza Singapura. In 2017, the REIT under-performed both the FTSE ST REIT Index (SGX: FSTAS8670), and the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI). The indices gained 20.6% and 18.1%, respectively, for the year, while CapitaLand Mall Trust’s unit price increased by just 13%. Part of the under-performance could be due to the REIT’s muted financial performance and the slowdown in the retail environment. In 2017, CapitaLand Mall Trust’s gross revenue declined by 1.1% to S$682.5 million, while net property income (NPI) dipped by 0.3% to S$478.2 million.

3 Concerning Trends Affecting CapitaLand Mall Trust
CapitaLand Mall Trust (SGX:C38U) is the largest retail real estate investment trust (REIT) in Singapore. It currently has an impressive portfolio of 16 shopping malls located around our Garden City. Some of the malls in its portfolio include prominent destinations such as IMM, Plaza Singapura, and Clark Quay. The REIT released its 2017 full year results a few months ago.

Is Lippo Malls Indonesia Retail Trust a Risky Investment?
Lippo Malls Indonesia Retail Trust (SGX: D5IU), or LMIRT for short, is an Indonesian retail REIT listed in Singapore. It owns a portfolio of 23 retail malls and seven retail spaces located across four cities in Indonesia. Last year, LMIRT increased its debt load to acquire two new properties, which prompted Moody’s to review the trust’s credit rating. If its credit rating is downgraded, LMIRT’s ability to secure additional loans or refinancing might be compromised. It might consequently have to obtain loans at a higher interest rate. A higher cost of debt, will, in turn, affect earnings and distributions. I have done some research on the REIT and have concluded that despite Moody’s review on the REIT’s credit rating, LMIRT has been able to manage its debt strategically over the

Should You Ever Borrow To Invest In Stocks? Here Are Some Things You Need To Consider
The idea seems like a no-brainer: you borrow money at low interest rates and invest it into high dividend yielding stocks. This way, you earn the difference on “free” money. If this is something you’ve thought about or heard your family and friends doing and are thinking of jumping on the bandwagon, here are some things you should know. Contra Trading While technically this isn’t considered borrowing to invest, the concept is very similar. You buy stocks without putting down any money and hope to gain on price appreciation. In Singapore, the settlement date can be up to T+3, which means you have to pay up for your trade on the fourth day after your purchase. Technically, you can “borrow” the trading limit on your account for up to four days interest-free. If you sell your stock

S-REIT Report Card: Here’s How Singapore REITs Performed In Full Year 2017
Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) are one of the most popular investment choices for investors in Singapore. This is because REITs give investors exposure to the property market, in Singapore and in diverse overseas markets, as well as offer relatively good returns. In 2017, the SGX S-REIT 20 Index, comprising 20 of the largest and most highly-traded REITs listed in Singapore, delivered a return of close to 27.1%. This strong showing has been followed up by relative weakness in the year-to-date 2018, delivering a return of negative 4.8%. Compared to the broad market, the Straits Times Index (STI) has delivered a slightly lower return of 18.1% in 2017, but continued to deliver a return of 4.3% in the year-to-date 2018.

Top 10 Singapore REITs that made you money if you invested from their IPOs (updated 2018)
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 43 cents per share. 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.
