Better Buy: CapitaLand Commercial Trust or Suntec Real Estate Investment Trust?
Office market rents in Singapore have been on the rise. That’s a growth opportunity for real estate investment trusts (REITs) such as Suntec Real Estate Investment Trust (SGX: T82U) and CapitaLand Commercial Trust (SGX: C61U). The two are among the largest commercial REITs listed in Singapore and have a line-up of some of the most recognised office buildings in Singapore. While I can’t tell for certain which REIT will provide investors with higher returns, we can examine crucial aspects of their business to see which one you would be more comfortable adding to your portfolio. Financial health The first aspect we will compare is the financial health of the REITs. In particular, I will take a look at the debt-to-asset ratio which tells me how much debt headroom the two REITs have.  Sun

Can CapitaLand Commercial Trust Increase Its Distribution Per Unit In The Coming Years?
Singapore office rental rates are on the rise. As a large landlord of prime office space in Singapore, CapitaLand Commercial Trust (SGX: C61U), could stand to benefit. While Capitaland Commercial Trust’s year-to-date results may have disappointed some investors due to its lower distribution per unit (DPU), its most recent quarter showed a markedly improved performance and could be a signal that a turnaround is on the cards. Here are three reasons I am optimistic that CapitaLand Commercial Trust can increase its DPU going forward. Contribution from acquisitions CapitaLand Commercial Trust may have acquired Asia Square Tower Two back in November last year, but it has only just received its maiden dividends from the wholly-owned subsidiary that owns the building. In addition, the trust ac

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%.

Getting Defensive With REITs (Part 1)
Tides seemed to have turned and the market appears to be on the verge of a correction. The outlook for December is getting ominous and investors should be prepared. According to RHB, it is now time to start getting defensive with REITs as the macroeconomic environment becomes more volatile amidst the threat of faster rate hikes from the Fed. RHB: REIT Outlook By Sub-Sector Hospitality Hospitality REITs have been underperforming over the last two years due to a steady decline in hotel revenue per available room (RevPAR) post the 2012 peak. RHB notes that this decline was mainly driven by high hotel supply growth. For the last four years, hotel supply in Singapore has been growing at 4-5 percent per annum, which exceeds the 1-3 percent demand growth. However, going forward, RHB believes t

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

How CapitaLand Limited Is Gearing Towards the Future Office Trend
Commercial tenants are no longer only looking for conventional office spaces for their businesses. Co-working spaces are increasingly becoming the norm in the commercial real estate market. To tap on to the growth of the co-working space, property giant, CapitaLand Limited (SGX: C31), recently announced that it is embarking on a new strategy. CapitaLand’s “office of the future” strategy, as it is called, involves combining a building’s conventional office space (core) and flexible space (flex) to create innovative workplace solutions. For the flexible space, co-working space is one of the types. With this new core-flex offering, tenants can have the flexibility to change their requirements as they wish.

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.

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.

Out of the universe of Singapore-listed companies that reported 2Q18 earnings, 29 percent bested UOBKH’s expectations.

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.

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.

So, which are the REITs that have recently reported mixed numbers?

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%.
