3 Quality REIT Gems For Income Seekers
For a period of time, investors have been avoiding REITs for the fear of the impact of the Fed’s interest rate hike. Now, it seems that the time has come for REITs to feature more prominently in investors’ portfolio. In this article, we will focus on three quality REIT gems that DBS thinks every investor in the Singapore market need to have in your portfolio. Investors Takeaway: 3 Quality REIT Gems For Income Seekers Ascendas REIT According to DBS, A-REIT is one of the must-have REITs in Singapore. Despite its premium pricing, DBS thinks that Ascendas REIT (A-REIT) is worth accumulating as it offers a steady growth of around one percent in distribution per unit (DPU). The steady growth in DPU is supported by A-REIT’s solid portfolio and the manager’s ability to acquire creat

4 Stocks This Week (S-REITs) [14 September 2018] Ascendas India Trust; CapitaLand Commercial Trust; Mapletree Commercial Trust; Starhill Global REIT
On Wednesday, Apple unveiled the iPhone XS, XR and the Apple Watch Series 4. In the same week, Apple Singapore listed new job postings for retail staff for a location in the East, fuelling speculation that Apple is opening its second official store, after Apple Orchard Road, its first in Southeast Asia, opened to much fanfare in May 2017. If this is true, the move will increase Apple’s demand for physical retail space. This runs counter to many brick-and-mortar retailers in Singapore, who are increasingly looking to expanding their online presence for growth. For example, DIY chain Home-Fix has reduced its number of physical stores in Singapore from 26 to 16 since 2016, but actively bolstered the company’s online presence. Retail landlords are also feeling the sting from a cooling comm

The Most Important Blue-Chips In Singapore’s Stock Market: CapitaLand Group

The STI is made up from 30 of the largest listed companies on the Singapore stock market. These blue-chip companies come from a variety of industries and sectors. However, there is one family of companies which hold a greater clout on STI compared to most other companies. Let’s a closer look at CapitaLand Limited (SGX C31) in this article (data as of end of August 2018): 1.

Singapore’s Top 5 Performing Blue-Chip Stocks
Singapore’s Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI), which hosts 30 of the largest companies in Singapore, has fallen by over 8% since the start of the year. But it’s not all doom and gloom. If we lengthen our horizon from months to years, we will see that a good number of STI companies have actually done quite well. In fact, a recent SGX report revealed that the top five performing companies in the index had returned over 77% on average over the past three years. Let’s have a look at the select quintet (data as of 30 August 2018): 1.

2Q18 Report Card – How Did The SG Market Fare?
Out of the universe of Singapore-listed companies that reported 2Q18 earnings, 29 percent bested UOBKH’s expectations. This is almost double of last quarter’s 15 percent, which makes 2Q18 one of the highest level of beats since 4Q16. In this article, we dive into the sector analysis of some of the top performing and underperforming sectors in 2Q18. UOBKH SG Report Card: How Did Each Sector Fare?

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. The good times came to an end in 2018 as the market corrected pretty dramatically, with the STI generating a total return of -2.3% in 1H18. This was followed by a modest recovery, with a total return of 0.1% in 2H2018 to date. The 6 best-performing STI stocks that led the STI recovery for 2H2

Institutional Investors Have Been Selling These 3 Stocks
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. Hence, it may be useful to keep a close eye on what they are doing, as a way to generate ideas.

Here Are 2 REITS That Have Delivered Mixed Results In Their Latest Earnings Updates
We’re near the end of the current earnings season. As is common with every earnings season, there will be some real estate investment trusts (REITs) posting growth, some REITs posting mixed numbers, and some REITs experiencing declines. So, which are the REITs that have recently reported mixed numbers? Let’s look at two of them: 1. In late July, CapitaLand Commercial Trust (SGX: C61U) released its 2018 second quarter earnings update. As a quick introduction, CapitaLand Commercial Trust is one of the largest commercial REITs in Singapore by market capitalization. It currently owns 10 commercial properties in Singapore and one office asset in Germany.

Completion of Twenty Anson divestment by Capitaland Commercial Trust
Capitaland Commercial Trust (CCT) has announced the completion of the divestment of Twenty Anson. The sale was originally announced on 29 June 2018, with CCT mentioning the sale consideration of S$516 million or S$2,503 per sqft based on the building’s net lettable area. On the divestment, Mr Kevn Chee, CEO of the Manager, said “The divestment of Twenty Anson is in line with CCT’s proactive strategy to reconstitute the Trust’s portfolio and optimize returns for unitholders”. Assuming net divestment proceeds are used to repay existing debt, CCT’s pro-forma aggregate leverage would drop from 37.9% as at 31 March 2018 to 34.5%.

Five REITs To Outperform The Benchmark In The Next 12 Months
Real estate investment trusts (REITs) fell behind property developers in the first half of the year. However, UBS expects a reversal in this trend in the second half of the year, following the implementation of a fresh round of property cooling measures effective 6 July 2018. Singapore REITs are likely to be more resilient amid heightened risk aversion, given their defensive traits. UBS’ most preferred REITs are CDL Hospitality Trusts (CDLHT), CapitaLand Commercial Trust (CCT), Ascendas REIT (A-REIT), Mapletree Logistics Trust (MLT) and Frasers Centerpoint Trust (FCT). On the other hand, property developers are likely to trade rangebound as heightened policy risk casts an overhang on the outlook for Singapore’s residential property market.  The outlook for residential property pri

Governance of trusts: sunny, with a chance of isolated showers
First published in Business Times on 1 August, 2018 By Mak Yuen Teen and Chew Yi Hong Last year, we launched the Governance Index for Trusts (GIFT), the first-ever published governance index in Singapore that is specifically developed for listed real estate investment trusts (Reits) and business trusts (BTs) in Singapore. GIFT assesses both governance and business risk factors. We assessed 43 trusts. This year, we covered 44 trusts, comprising six that are constituted as stapled securities (SS), nine pure business trusts and 33 Reits. We excluded four newly-listed trusts that have not yet published an annual report at the cut-off date. Some changes were made to the index, including the addition of a small number of new demerit criteria, and replacing volatility of returns with a criterion

4 Types of REITs to Avoid
Real estate investment trusts (REITs) allow investors to gain exposure to the property market with very little capital outlay. On top of that, these investment vehicles usually have dividend yields that are way higher than the general market, making them even more attractive. Having said that, not all REITs make good investments. Here are some types of REITs that investors should be wary of. Highly-leveraged REITs REITs in Singapore have a gearing ratio limit of 45%, as mandated by the Monetary Authority of Singapore. The gearing ratio is calculated by taking a REIT’s total borrowings and dividing it by its total assets. Generally, I prefer REITs to have a leverage ratio of below 35%. This ensures that if the economy were to take a sudden downturn, there would still be a margin of safety

CapitaLand Commercial Trust’s 2018 Second Quarter Earnings: What Investors Should Know
CapitaLand Commercial Trust (SGX: C61U) is Singapore’s first and largest commercial real estate investment trust (REIT). Currently, its portfolio comprises 10 prime office properties in Singapore, and one in Frankfurt, Germany. Before the stock market opened today, the REIT announced its financial results for the second quarter of 2018. Gross revenue for the quarter grew 12% year-on-year to S$98.0 million. The increase was primarily due to the contribution from Asia Square Tower 2 (acquired on November 2017), which more than offset the loss in income from the divestments of One George Street, Golden Shoe Car Park, and Wilkie Edge last year. The Frankfurt property, Gallileo, which was acquired by the REIT on 18 June 2018, and CapitaGreen’s better performance, also contributed to the r

The Week Ahead: Keppel Corp, SATS, CCT and CMT
Four more Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) companies are pencilled in for quarterly results next week. Keppel Corporation (SGX: BN4) is starting to look more like the conglomerate that it is, rather than just a builder of oil rigs. In April, it posted a 33% jump in first-quarter earnings. This was thanks to a stronger performance from its property division. Keppel Corp will report on Thursday. It wasn’t the best of quarters for SATS (SGX: S58) when it reported earnings for the final three months of its financial year in May. Fourth-quarter earnings were down 1.8% following a slowdown in food solutions. Thankfully, that was offset by better results at gateway services. SATS will announce first-quarter results on Thursday.

8 Different Types of REITs and Stapled Trusts Listed in Singapore
There are around 40 real estate investment trusts (REITs) and stapled trusts in Singapore currently. As highlighted here, the REITs and six stapled trusts had an average distribution yield of 6.7%, as of 6 July 2018. The figure is an average, so some REITs will have an above-average yield while others will be below-average. A REIT’s distribution yield can be affected by a number of factors; one such factor is the sub-segment in which the REIT operates in. With that in mind, let’s look at the various sub-segments a REIT or stapled trust operate in, as categorised by the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS).

Investors Takeaway: Getting Double Digit Returns With These 3 REITs 1. Ascendas Hospitality Trust Ascendas Hospitality Trust (ASCHT) has been ignored by many investors due to its small market cap and its large exposure outside of Singapore. But it is precisely because of its presence in Australia (50 percent of FY18 net property income) and Japan (25 percent) that DBS thinks it is an opportunity to invest. Thanks to their low penetration of international visitors, DBS opines that both countries are experiencing a secular uptrend in the medium term.

However, DBS thinks that there are four good reasons why you should be investing in REITs at this point in time. S-REITs Aren’t Bonds, So Stop Pricing Them As One Investors and the market have been taking a cautious stance towards REITs due to rising interest rates and expensive valuations over the last five years. However, DBS opines that both investors and the market have been misreading drivers of REIT prices. After all, REITs are not straight out bonds and the impact of rising interest rates is mitigated by an expected upturn in rent rates. DBS notes that investors are incorrectly perceiving S-REITs as a straight forward bond
