The Top 3 Yielding REITs in Singapore Now
Last month, investors in Singapore saw one of the steepest sell-offs of a real estate investment trust (REIT) in recent memory. First Real Estate Investment Trust (SGX: AW9U) slid more than 10% in just two days as reports about the financial health of its main tenant, Lippo Karawaci Tbk PT spooked investors. REITs are often considered more stable investments than stocks because their rental income is usually more consistent and they tend to have fewer business risks than traditional companies. Because of these reasons, a large decline in a REIT’s unit price, such as First REIT’s, is a rare occurrence. That being said, the decline in price now means that investors who are willing to take some risks with First REIT can buy in at a much lower price. As the yield of a REIT is a function

These 2 REITs Have Distribution Yields Of More Than 8% Now
Real estate investment trusts, or REITs, are popular investment choices in the Singapore stock market. That’s because REITs tend to have high distribution yields due to their need to distribute at least 90% of their taxable income to unitholders in order to enjoy tax transparency. In this article, I would like to share with you two REITs that are trading at high yields of more than 8%. Source: SGX StockFacts We will start with Dasin Retail Trust (SGX: CEDU) or DRT. As a quick introduction, DRT is the only China retail property trust providing direct exposure to the Pearl River Delta region.

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.

Why Did First Real Estate Investment Trust’s Unit Price Plunge Yesterday?
First Real Estate Investment Trust (SGX: AW9U), which specialises primarily in healthcare-related properties such as nursing homes and hospitals, plunged more than 7% yesterday. The sudden decline in price may seem strange, considering that First REIT recently reported higher distribution per unit for its most recent quarter. One reason that could be impacting First REIT’s unit price is the downgrading of the credit rating of Lippo Karawaci, First REIT’s sponsor, key tenant, and main revenue contributor. Troubles at its main revenue contributor and sponsor Lippo Karawaci’s credit rating was downgraded by Fitch (one of the three major credit rating agencies) by two notches. Its long term foreign and local currency issuer default ratings was reduced from B to CCC+, as Fitch

This Keppel KBS US REIT Rights Issue and Withholding Tax Debacle
One of the most traumatizing experience for shareholders of Keppel KBS REIT was the announcement of the acquisition of Westpark Portfolio in Redmond. Keppel KBS is a Singapore listed real estate investment trust (REIT) which owns 11 office assets in 7 key regional markets in the USA. Westpark is a portfolio of 21 buildings located in the Redmond area, most famous for being where the original Microsoft resides. Keppel KBS proposed to acquire this portfolio for US$170 mil. By all accounts for their first acquisition, things should not be so traumatizing. I am not sure if its due to the rather negative overall market sentiments or what but the share price of Keppel KBS have fell 23% since the announcement of the acquisition.

Is First REIT a 7.3% High Dividend Yield Opportunity or Should you be Careful?
I used to write in the past that First REIT is one of those good REIT that investors should investigate why it is so good. It was one of the examples that I used to explain what experienced real estate investors look for when selecting the properties to put their money into. The price was pretty fair at 6% dividend yield not too long ago but in recent times the share price have fallen. Per my Dividend Stock Tracker, we can see the dividend yield is 7.3%. Now that to me is attractive territory, not because of the yield alone. When you evaluate a stock, you got to take in the whole package, whether the business has quality or there are some aspect that is negative such that it trades at this valuation. And for First REIT there is definitely some overhang. Not too long ago, it was announced t

Top 5 dividend stocks with excellent ROE
In Singapore, dividend investing has been gaining popularity among wealth builders seeking yield for their investment capital. However, dividend investing may not be so straightforward because there are many factors to consider when investing in stocks. This means that there is a need to delve deeper into a company business fundamentals instead of just using a screener to come out with a list of top dividend stocks to invest in. In my previous articles, I have shared my insights on the top three dividend stocks in Singapore: Asian Pay TV Trust (dividend yield: 19.4% – 26%), Lippo Malls Indonesia Retail Trust (dividend yield: 9.9% – 12.9%) and HPH Trust (9.8% – 12.8%).

SI Research: We Still Like First REIT Despite Its Struggling Sponsor
Indonesian REITs have not been performing well of late, weighed down by the depreciating Indonesian Rupiah which in turn affected the amount of distribution paid out to unitholders. In contrast to Lippo Malls Indonesia Retail Trust which has plunged 31.3 percent year-to-date, First REIT’s 12.2 percent decline would have been considered mild. This is largely due to the latter’s Indonesia properties’ rentals being pegged to Singapore dollars to mitigate foreign exchange volatility. In spite of this, there are growing concerns in the market recently with regard to the weakening financial health of First REIT’s sponsor, namely Indonesia’s largest property conglomerate Lippo Karawaci.

3 Shares at Risk from the Indonesian Rupiah Collapse
Last week, the Indonesian rupiah collapsed to its weakest level against the green back in 20 years. One US dollar was equivalent to 14,825 rupiah, representing a 9% drop since the start of the year, making the rupiah one of the worst performing currencies in the region. Worse still, analysts believe that if credit spreads rise, the rupiah could plunge even further, and possibly surpass the 15,000 mark. Market participants in Singapore reacted quickly to the news, selling down stocks that would be affected by the sudden collapse of the Indonesian rupiah. Here are the three counters that could be affected should the currency crisis continue.

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
