Top 10 Singapore REITs that made you money if you invested from their IPOs (updated 2021)
The year 2020 was full of surprises. COVID-19 was one of them. It is depressing to describe the ordeal that many of us went through over the past year but the pandemic has fundamentally changed the way we live. Most of us are still working from home by default which makes office assets look redundant. Tourists are a rare sight nowadays as most international flights are still grounded and hotels are struggling to fill their rooms. City malls are also scrambling to bring shopper traffic back as they used to depend on office workers and tourists for footfall in the past. On the other hand, industrial properties like logistics and data centre assets have performed really well in the post-pandemic world. More people are shopping online and it has naturally led to increased demand for war

S-REIT Report Card: Here’s How Singapore REITs Performed In 2020
2020 was a precarious year for property owners. Globally, travel has grinded to a halt, impacting hospitality properties. Even Retail, office and industrial properties have been affected to varying degrees, given the strict COVID-19 management measures. 2020 also feels like the harbinger of the new normal – accelerating trends to an extreme level. We already knew work-from-home was on the rise, online shopping growth was outpacing sales in brick-and-mortar stores, food delivery services were taking over F&B outlets and more. For REIT owners, distribution income was affected due to various countries implementing some form of cost sharing initiatives as shutdowns and “circuit breakers” we enforced. More than that, REIT investors also have to consider the longer term impacts of COVI

TTI’s 2021 Market Outlook And Review Of Tiger Brokers
Let me start 2021 off on SG TTI with something fun. On the 1st trading day of 2021, I fired off a mini proton cannon shot at 1 listed company in SGX. Long-time readers would know that prior to that, I don’t own anything on SGX. Not directly in the personal portfolio at least. (Own some shares of FCT indirectly via a holding company, that’s about it) I intend to add a little more to this position before I’m done. See if you can guess what company this is. Here’s the solitary clue: Ah. Now that I look at it, this sure is a dead giveaway. But maybe cos I know the answer… so everything looks damn obvious. LOL. Let’s see how many folks get it right.

Things Don't Look Good for Retail Landlords
The massive sell-down in Mar brought many REITs to rare, multi-year lows. This re-ignited my interest in REITs, as I have been out of them for many years due to their increasing debt levels and decreasing yields. However, I passed up the opportunity while I analysed what could be the impact of COVID-19 on REITs. Despite the massive government interventions, things do not look good for retail and F&B companies. And when tenants struggle, their landlords will also suffer. In this blog post, I will examine the potential impact of COVID-19 on 2 retail companies and 2 F&B companies.Before we begin, it is good to recap what are the measures the government has taken to cushion the impact on retail and F&B companies. Wage SupportThrough 4 extraordinary budgets, the government will

Portfolio Updates (December 2020)
It’s finally Christmas and it's the season I look forward to every year and the time for cold weather travel to ski on powder snow. Unfortunately, this time is different. I booked a few flights for travel this year and all got cancelled (including the travel bubble one). If there’s anything good in not being able to travel is that I managed to save more money. I continued investing in stocks and I am blessed that my portfolio has done well this year, particularly my Growth portfolio. Thanks to the circuit breaker, the times spent at home has allowed me to do more personal reflection, come out with an investment strategy and act on it. Despite the US stock market hitting record highs, I believe next year will still be a good year for equities market. The past few months rally is fuelled

Portfolio Updates (November 2020)
November turns out to be a busy month with so many events happening around the world. The biggest news was that Biden won the US Presidential election, and stock market breathed a sigh of relief as Republicans likely gain the senate majority, making the prospect of Biden’s tax hike unlikely.   Also global markets gotten another boost when the news of the major development of Covid 19 broke during premarket hours, expect for tech stocks went on a steep selloff . While investors cheer for a vaccine breakthrough, my stock portfolio performance had been lukewarm at best, as many of my SG portfolio gains were offset by drop in tech stocks. Nevertheless, my portfolio is still in the green with 15.78% (XIRR) returns YTD. Whereas on the east side, Jack Ma’s blunt China’s bank talk

CICT (SGX:C38U): Should there be Concerns over Gearing and Asset Valuations?
In March this year, I wrote about the possibility of REITs having to raise capital through rights issues if Covid-19 were to cause severe declines in asset valuations (What Happened to REITs during the GFC?). Eight months on, this has not occurred, and although I believe that the likelihood of this has diminished, we cannot completely ignore it. In October, I initiated a position in Capitaland Mall Trust (CMT) at a price of $1.91, which has now merged with Capitaland Commercial Trust (CCT) to form Capitaland Integrated Commercial Trust (CICT). As a shareholder, I was curious to assess the likelihood of CICT having to raise capital through a rights issue, by analysing its gearing ratio and asset valuations. I have not ran the numbers to determine the gearing ratio of the merged entity, alt

Hong Kong Property Companies
 Quick notes on 3 HK property cos:Link REIT  - Yield 4.55% (at HKD 63, year ending March 2020 results), 100% payout ratio, mostly 50 year property leases  - Neighbourhood shopping centers, a bit like FCT in Sg.  Largely unaffected by economy/covid.  - Good LT track record growing assets without raising cash from shareholders, but yield too low for me, esp with 100% payout ratio.Wharf REIC:  - Yield 6.3% (at HKD 32.10, end Dec 2019 results), only 50% of CFO paid out, mostly freehold property.   - 75% operating profit from one mall: Harbour City.  Overall high exposure to luxury/tourism: 81% rental from leather, fashion or jewellery.   - Luxury brands are reducing their footprint in HK: eg: LV closing their Times Square store after Wharf

US Covid-19 condition is still critical, affecting the confidence of V-shape recovery of stock market, as well as the coming US presidential election in Nov 2020. Some investors worry of possible double dip, dare not take any action now. Crisis is always opportunity but an investor has to apply the right stock investing strategy.At the same time, Singapore stock market is lagging, major bank stocks, DBS Bank (SGX: D05), OCBC Bank (SGX: O39), UOB Bank (SGX: U11) are under correction after MAS guidelines to cap the dividend payment of banks to 60% of last year (implying if dividend yield is 6%, would become 6×0.6 = 3.6%), disappointing many passive income investors.
