Here’s why Singapore retail REITs will do fine in a post-COVID world
It is no surprise that a pandemic like COVID-19 that’s forced us into our homes and hospitals would bring the retail sector to its knees. Shopper traffic has dried up for countless stores and restaurants, and landlords are faced with several tenants who are unable to make rent. Many businesses have also permanently shuttered as they struggle to survive in a post-COVID world. Because of this, landlords like REITs have taken to reducing their dividend payouts in a bid to shore up cash during these tumultuous times. For example, CapitaLand Mall Trust reduced its Q1 2020 distributable income by 70.3% year-on-year — which would have been unwelcome news for many unitholders who rely on its quarterly dividends for income. However, these are exceptional circumstances and the que

Top 10 Singapore REITs that made you money if you invested from their IPOs (updated 2020)
Last year, Singapore welcomed four new REIT listings: ARA US Hospitality Trust, Eagle Hospitality, LendLease Global Commercial REIT, and Prime US REIT. Among them, Eagle Hospitality probably got the most attention, albeit for the wrong reasons. Eagle Hospitality’s largest asset is The Queen Mary, a luxury cruise ship which was converted into a hotel and permanently parked at Long Beach, California. The Edge Singapore pointed out that the retired cruise ship might sink into disrepair due to poor maintenance. Even if the repairs are carried out, it would cost a bomb and the amount would balloon to as high as twice the amount of its asset value. Upon news of this, the unit price of Eagle Hospitality quickly tanked from 66 cents to as low as 42 cents in less than a couple of weeks. Anyo

Key Takeaways from CapitaLand Commercial Trust & CapitaLand Mall Trust Merger
Two of the oldest REITs listed on SGX have announced a merger on 22 January 2020. CapitaLand Commercial Trust(SGX: C61U), or CCT, and CapitaLand Mall Trust (SGX: C38U), or CMT, announced that they would merge by way of a trust scheme arrangement. Both REITs are managed by real estate giant CapitaLand Limited (SGX: C31). This news is hardly surprising considering that it comes hot off the heels of another recently-announced REIT merger — that of Frasers Logistics & Industrial Trust (SGX: BUOU), or FLT, and Frasers Commercial Trust (SGX: ND8U), or FCOT. This December 2019 announcement continues the trend of REIT mergers within Singapore as the prevailing belief continues to be “bigger is better”.   Transaction Summary CMT will acquire all the issued and paid-up uni

Formation of Singapore Largest REIT by Capitaland
More merging within Singapore REIT sector. This time is joint forces of 2 Capitaland Giant REITs, Capitaland Mall Trust (SGX: C38U / CMT) and Capitaland Commercial Trust (SGX: C61U / CCT), forming Singapore Largest Reit, also the third largest in Asia Pacific. CCT shares will be converted into CMT. Both CMT and CCT are better than parent company, Capitaland, in the perspective of stock investment. CMT (which owns about 70% shopping malls in Singapore) is relatively stronger and more defensive than CCT, less susceptible to economic cycle. A giant is not defined by the size. An investor may not need to buy the biggest REIT (eg. American Tower, NYSE: AMT – largest REIT in the world, or LinkReit, HKEx: 0823 – largest REIT in Asia), but it has to be the strongest REI
