Why You Should Relook At Frasers Group Of Companies
DBS Research is fixing its eyes on Frasers Group given the many catalysts that are anticipated to drive up valuations. We take a look at the various listed companies under the group to see what’s making analysts excited about the prospects of the group based on the briefing held by Frasers Property(FP) on Frasers’ Day. Firstly, the group is looking into the expansion in Europe through acquiring properties in the continent. What makes Europe attractive is the freehold element for estates which means that the group can hold the asset for perpetuity unlike properties in Singapore which are mostly on a 99-year lease. This means that value of its properties will not be tied to a limited life-span, seeing sharp depreciation in the value of their assets. Furthermore, Europe is still maintaini

Comparison of REITs with overseas assets vs REITs that focus on Singapore
REITs with overseas assets has become increasingly popular and have proliferated on the SGX in recent years. These REITs span across all sub-sectors from classes from office, retail, industrial to even data centres. As an investor, what are the things to look out for before investing in REITs with overseas assets vs those that focus on Singapore only? We won’t mention REITs that have a mix of Singapore and overseas assets, such as Suntec REIT, because they are more difficult to analyze compared to those solely with foreign or Singapore assets. This difficulty arises because the local/foreign asset mix has a differing impact on performance, risk and returns. First up, let’s see which REITs have solely foreign assets and which only have Singapore assets. Singapore Foreign Office Ca

Portfolio Update March 2018
Dow dropped 700 points overnight and STI is following a similar fashion. Indicators are mostly red and down by some 2%. Looks like this is a year of wild swings in the market.Overall, market direction is still up.I had some time to tabulate my portfolio against sti. From jan 2016 (sti was around 3150) to now (sti now around 3430, STI has gained nearly 9%. Over a similar time, my portfolio has gained nearly 19%. Most of it is via dividend reinvesting and also rebalancing of portfolio occurs every 6 months or so, or unless a particular counter moves upwards so much that a sooner rebalancing is warranted.I believe my portfolio is rather defensive and resilient in nature. Previous large drops in sti resulted in corresponding drops of smaller magnitude.As I type this, STI closed down 71 points

Having Faith In S-REITs
Spike in the 10-year bond and fears over inflation have led to a sell-off among S-REITs in recent weeks. Some investors have raised concerns that this resembles the painful memories of 2013 where S-REITs plunged 22 percent. However, in DBS’s opinion, the recent sell-off is different and largely overdone. Instead, DBS recommends investors to continue keeping faith in S-REITs and invest in them at a discount. REIT Fundamentals Intact With Sector Growing Looking forward, DBS expects better economic growth and easing supply pressures to bring growth back to the S-REIT sector. The stronger property fundamentals are also supporting higher rentals and revenue per available room (RevPAR) and driving higher distribution growth rate.

S-REIT Report Card: Here’s How Singapore REITs Performed In Full Year 2017
Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) are one of the most popular investment choices for investors in Singapore. This is because REITs give investors exposure to the property market, in Singapore and in diverse overseas markets, as well as offer relatively good returns. In 2017, the SGX S-REIT 20 Index, comprising 20 of the largest and most highly-traded REITs listed in Singapore, delivered a return of close to 27.1%. This strong showing has been followed up by relative weakness in the year-to-date 2018, delivering a return of negative 4.8%. Compared to the broad market, the Straits Times Index (STI) has delivered a slightly lower return of 18.1% in 2017, but continued to deliver a return of 4.3% in the year-to-date 2018. This month, majority of the REITs announced their FY2017 results. H

Top 10 Singapore REITs that made you money if you invested from their IPOs (updated 2018)
In early 2017, Sabana REIT has been getting a lot of attention when a small group of unitholders moved to kick out the manager for delivering poor performance since its IPO in 2010. Early investors who bought Sabana at an IPO price of S$1.05 are now sitting on huge losses – Sabana last traded at just 43 cents per share. If we look at the history, Sabana REIT isn’t alone. There are several other Singapore REITs (S-REITs) like Saizen REIT, MacarthurCook Industrial REIT and Allco REIT that have run into trouble before and caused a dent in Singapore’s REIT sector. Despite some casualties, Singapore’s REIT market remains vibrant – largely thanks to the majority of S-REITs that continue to deliver good results to income investors.

Best performing REITs year to date
For the year to date until 22nd Jan, REITs have returned on average 2.6%. On an annualized basis, returns would be close to 50%. However, that large number is but of course due to the short term positive return. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});  Returns will likely be volatile over the next few months as the Fed signals their intention to return to a normalized interest rate level – impacting interest rate sensitive REITs. Those with higher gearing such as IREIT Global, Mapletree Greater China Commercial Trust, Soilbuild REIT and Viva Industrial Trust may be at risk due to higher interest burdens.

Which REITs Have More Potential Upsides?
REITs had a stellar performance in 2017. The REITs sector returned 21 percent year-on-year. Despite the strong performance in 2017, RHB believes that the sector still offers among the highest absolute yields compared to the global REITs sector. RHB notes that the strong economic pick-up should boost underlying demand and continue to support REITs. Focus On Growth Drivers With a strong pick-up in economic activities in Singapore, the underlying demand for REITs should also pick up. Thus, RHB recommends investors to focus on REITs that are likely to benefit from the economic pick-up and deliver growth. RHB also recommends REITs that have made accretive acquisitions that are expected to deliver inorganic growth from the uptick in demand. Hospitality REITs: On The Cusp Of Multi-Year Growth Sin
