S-REIT Report Card: Here’s How Singapore REITs Performed In Third Quarter 2018
Against the backdrop of a rising interest rate environment, REITs seem to be one of the obvious losers. This is because REITs are asset-heavy investments that require high levels of leverage, borrowing substantial amounts of money to purchase properties that they subsequently rent out. Read Also: Increasing Interest Rates In 2018: Here Are 4 Ways Singaporeans Will Be Affected In Singapore, there are currently 39 listed REITs and a further nine business trusts (of which six are property related). On average, they have a debt to asset ratio of just under 35%. With rising interest rates, REITs will have to fork out more in interest payment, potentially reducing the distributions they can pay to investors.

3 Singapore-Listed Dividend Companies That Are Perfect For Retirement
Companies which are ideal to buy during retirement generally have strong businesses and excess cash to dole out to shareholders as dividends. With this in mind, let’s look at three Singapore-listed stocks that could give you a steady stream of dividend income in your golden years. Company #1 VICOM Limited (SGX: V01) is a leading provider of technical testing and inspection services in Singapore. In 2017, the company had a 74.5% share of the vehicular testing market in our Garden City. From 2013 to 2017, VICOM managed to grow its total dividend (including special dividends) at a remarkable annual rate of 12.5% from S$0.225 per share to S$0.36 per share. In the second quarter of 2017, VICOM adjusted its dividend policy to payout at least 90% of its net profit as a dividend; the previous ra

12 things I learned from the 2018 Starhill Global REIT AGM
Starhill Global REIT (SGREIT) is a Singapore-listed REIT that owns a portfolio of 10 malls and office buildings located in Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, China and Japan. As at 30 June 2018, its portfolio was valued at S$3.1 billion. SGREIT has been in my portfolio for a number of years now and given me a positive overall return despite its share price falling 15% year-to-date. This is largely due to the steady dividends I’ve received thus far. However, SGREIT’s distributions per unit (DPU) have been falling the past two years from 5.18 cents to 4.55 cents. This is worrying as steady, growing dividends are key for any REIT investor. Will SGREIT be able to boost its DPU in the near-term? I attended the recent annual general meeting to find out more.

4 Stocks This Week (Low Beta) [26 October 2018] – Delfi; CMT; UOA; IHH
As Halloween approaches, even the stock market has got in on the act. The Straits Times Index (STI), a benchmark index in Singapore, spooked investors by dipping below 3000 for the first time since January 2017. Eventually closing at 2972.02 on 26 October 2018 (Friday), the STI has lost nearly 13.4% since the start of 2018. In fact, since the beginning of October, it has fallen close to 8.7%. This drop, and heightened volatility, has caused many investors to take a tepid approach to investing in the stock markets. This brings us to our topic for this week – Low Beta. Beta Beta is a measure of the volatility of the stock compared to the rest of the market. A stock with a beta of 1 indicates that its price moves in tandem with the benchmark.

Bear Market Alert: The Straits Times Index Falls Below The 3,000 Level
At the time of writing, Singapore’s stock market benchmark, the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI), has fallen below 3,000 points. The last time the index fell below this mark was in late 2015. But declines are better expressed in terms of percentages, rather than points. At its current level, the STI is down almost 18% from its highest point over the past year. If the index continues falling and breaches the 20% mark, we will have a bear market in our hands. Putting It Into Context A bear market sounds scary, but it shouldn’t be – that is, if we focus on the right things. First of all, bear markets are quite common and are expected to happen from time to time. Between 1993 and 2016, a period of 24 years, the STI had fallen 20% or more (from peak-to-trough) in two years ou

5 things to know before you invest in the Phillip SING Income ETF
A year ago, Phillip Capital Management, along with Lion Global Investors, launched the Lion-Phillip S-REIT ETF. The ETF aimed to give investors a way to invest in a diversified basket of Singapore REITs (S-REITs) which paid a steady stream of distributions. (At the moment, the average distribution yield for S-REITs is 6.8%.) The ETF was met with a largely positive response from the market – Lion Global Investors and Phillip Capital Management initially aimed to raise S$40-50 million but exceeded their target when the fund raised over S$100 million last October. Capitalizing on the Singapore market’s appetite for yield, Phillip Capital Management has now launched the Phillip SING Income ETF. The initial offer period for the ETF will close at 11:00 a.m. on 19 October 2018 before its list

Institutional Investors Have Been Buying These 3 Blue-Chip Stocks In August
There are many ways to find investment ideas. Some useful ways are to screen for stocks or to look at a list of stocks near their 52-week lows to sieve out potential bargains. Studying what institutional investors have been buying or selling is another avenue. Institutional investors are typically large investment organisations, such as hedge funds, mutual funds, unit trust companies, sovereign wealth funds, insurance companies and so on. These investors tend to possess vastly greater resources than individual investors like you and me when researching stocks.

4 Stocks This Week (STI Biggest Gainers) [31 August 2018] CapitaLand; SPH; CCT; Jardine C&C
With uncertainty about how escalating trade tensions between the US and China will play out, investors have been more risk-adverse, concerned about broader ripple effects on global economic growth. The same has been observed in the Singapore market. As you know, the Straits Times Index (STI) is made up of 30 of the largest and most liquid stocks listed on the Singapore Exchange (SGX). Last year saw one of the most amazing bull runs in recent years, with STI generating total returns of 22% in 2017.
