2 Top-Performing REITs That Have Been Added To Key Indices
Globally, real estate investment trusts (REITs) have performed well this year. The low-interest-rate environment and uncertainty surrounding geopolitical events have seen investors flock to the safe havens of REITs. It is, therefore, no surprise to see that two of the three best-performing constituents of the FTSE ST Mid Cap Index over the first eight months of 2019 were REITs. The two REITs were also rewarded with inclusion into key indices that will increase their profile to investors. Mapletree Commercial Trust (SGX: N2IU) will replace Hutchison Port Hldg Trust (SGX: NS8U) in the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI), while Frasers Centrepoint Trust (SGX: J69U) will become part of the FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Global Real Estate Index Series.  Here are some things to note about the Mapletree Com

3 S-REITs To Go Long On Amidst Uncertainties
Amidst the widespread sell-offs in global equities including the Singapore blue chips, S-REITs showed resilience. High yields, along with a retreating interest rate outlook, gave investors a compelling reason to remain invested. As the trade war between the US and China escalates up a notch, central banks around the world (from the US to EU and China) have been shifting to more accommodative policies to sustain the shaky economic environment.  Relative to other major bourses, S-REITs are amongst the highest yield, making them even more attractive. Given this backdrop, here are three S-REITs to go long on in spite of the weak outlook.  Ascendas REIT Within the industrial space, the market seemed to have consolidated and both demand and supply are now more supportive.

These 4 Billion-Dollar REITs Recently Announced DPU-Accretive Acquisitions
While most investors invest in REITs to obtain a steady stream of dividend income, the fact is that REITs also grow over time, either through organic means (through asset enhancement initiatives or renovations) or through mergers and acquisitions. Acquisitions are a favoured method because it will instantly provide a boost to both asset size (and value) and usually also comes with an increase in distribution per unit (DPU). Investors need to be discerning though – not all acquisitions are beneficial for the REIT. Some assets may be sub-par, and even for quality assets, REITs may also end up over-paying for them, resulting in value destruction for existing unitholders. Investors should carefully size up the facts and figures relating to each acquisition to assess if it boosts the ove

A Relook Back Into The 2016 Bear Case And What I Did To Get The Most Out Of It
The Trade War is escalating.You can feel that coming as investors as you read the news that both Trump and Xi had continuously been playing a game of cat and mouse and it appears there's no way both could get a mutual agreement that might compromise one another.Last night was a bloodbath as Dow was down more than 600+ points while Nasdaq had fallen by 3%.It's pretty drastic in my opinion, but we are getting the hang of it with Trump.Up 2% on one night, down 3% the next day, and then up another 2%, and then down another 3%.Monday is going to be interesting especially for our STI index which is still at 3,110, and are still up by about 4-5% (inclusive of dividend) year to date.Not cool at all given we want a bigger drop like the ones we've seen most recently in 2016, at the very least.The ye

Frasers Centrepoint Trust (SGX: J69U) and CapitaLand Mall Trust (SGX: C38U) are both real estate investment trusts (REITs) that own a portfolio of shopping malls in Singapore. Over the last five years, CapitaLand Mall Trust has seen its share price rise 31.5%, while Frasers Centrepoint Trust’s shares have clocked a gain of 37.2%. Both companies have given long-term investors plenty to smile about when we consider that each of them have paid out consistent dividends throughout the years. Coupled with the fact that the SPDR Straits Times Index ETF, a low-cost exchange-traded fund that tracks Singapore’s stock market barometer, the Straits Times Index, delivered a cumulative gain of just 15.4% over the same period.

4 REITs That Have Seen Impressive 10-Year Increases in Their DPU
Investors choose to invest in real estate investment trusts (REITs) mainly for income, as REITs are investment vehicles that own income-generating properties. These properties provide steady, consistent and recurring rental income for the REIT, and regulations stipulate that 90% of a REIT’s earnings have to be paid out as distributions to unitholders. While the stability of a REIT’s distribution is a key attraction for investors, an added bonus will be REITs that are able to deliver consistent increases in their distribution per unit (DPU) over the long-term. Such REITs engage in a variety of methods to grow both their asset bases and their DPU. Such methods include organic growth initiatives such as asset enhancement initiatives and positive rental reversions, as well as acqu

4 Stocks This Week (REIT Acquisitions) 31 May 2019 – Frasers Centrepoint; Sasseur REIT; Manulife US REIT; EC World REIT
With more than 40 real estate investment trusts (REITs) and property trusts, the Singapore Exchange (SGX) is a haven for those who are looking to invest in real estates. This makes sense as many Singapore investors have a penchant for investing in properties, both locally and overseas. REITs are a great way to get started on investing in properties. Unlike the purchase of physical properties, a REIT investor only needs to make an outlay of a few thousand dollars, as opposed to hundreds of thousands of dollars. In addition, investors will enjoy greater diversification as each REIT they invest in already own multiple properties. Also, investors do not have to worry about the hassle of managing the properties since the REITs manager will already be managing the assets for them. Read Also: In
