Get Defensive With REITs But Be Selective
Following the Fed committee’s view that inflation has no signs of overshooting above two percent, the market is now of the view that the gradual process of normalisation remains appropriate. This led to the easing of bond yields. In Singapore, the Singapore government 10-year bond yield has eased since peaking in May. OCBC Strategy: Get Defensive With REITs, But Be Selective As bond yield eases, OCBC is seeing some respite in demand for S-REITs in the near term. On top of that, the ongoing macroeconomic uncertainties emanating from the US-China trade friction. This will further drive investors’ flight to safety to REITs. Going forward, OCBC believes that S-REITs can warrant a strategic position in investors’ portfolio, albeit in a selective manner. From a tactical positioning, OCBC

Five REITs To Outperform The Benchmark In The Next 12 Months
Real estate investment trusts (REITs) fell behind property developers in the first half of the year. However, UBS expects a reversal in this trend in the second half of the year, following the implementation of a fresh round of property cooling measures effective 6 July 2018. Singapore REITs are likely to be more resilient amid heightened risk aversion, given their defensive traits. UBS’ most preferred REITs are CDL Hospitality Trusts (CDLHT), CapitaLand Commercial Trust (CCT), Ascendas REIT (A-REIT), Mapletree Logistics Trust (MLT) and Frasers Centerpoint Trust (FCT). On the other hand, property developers are likely to trade rangebound as heightened policy risk casts an overhang on the outlook for Singapore’s residential property market.  The outlook for residential property pri

What Investors Should Know About a Typical REIT Structure Using Frasers Centrepoint Trust as an Example
Real estate investment trusts (REITs) offer an alternative to owning properties. Under a REIT structure, investors’ (called unitholders) money is pooled together to invest in a portfolio of income-generating real estate such as offices, hotels, hospitals, and shopping malls. Just like stocks, they can be bought and sold on a stock exchange. In return for their capital, unitholders receive regular distributions from the REITs. The first Singapore REIT, CapitaLand Mall Trust (SGX: C38U), was listed in July 2002. It is also the largest retail REIT by market capitalisation of S$7.4 billion, as at 31 March 2018.

8 Different Types of REITs and Stapled Trusts Listed in Singapore
There are around 40 real estate investment trusts (REITs) and stapled trusts in Singapore currently. As highlighted here, the REITs and six stapled trusts had an average distribution yield of 6.7%, as of 6 July 2018. The figure is an average, so some REITs will have an above-average yield while others will be below-average. A REIT’s distribution yield can be affected by a number of factors; one such factor is the sub-segment in which the REIT operates in. With that in mind, let’s look at the various sub-segments a REIT or stapled trust operate in, as categorised by the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS).

4 Reasons To Invest In S-REITs Now
REITs have traditionally been a mainstay in Singaporeans’ investment portfolio. However, with interest rates now rising, interest in REITs seem to have waned. However, DBS thinks that there are four good reasons why you should be investing in REITs at this point in time. S-REITs Aren’t Bonds, So Stop Pricing Them As One Investors and the market have been taking a cautious stance towards REITs due to rising interest rates and expensive valuations over the last five years. However, DBS opines that both investors and the market have been misreading drivers of REIT prices. After all, REITs are not straight out bonds and the impact of rising interest rates is mitigated by an expected upturn in rent rates.

How To Choose The Best REITs To Invest In?
When it comes to investing in real estate investment trusts (REITs), most investors look at the distribution yield as part of their decision-making process. However, the distribution yield of a REIT tells us nothing about the sustainability of its distributions, nor the strengths or weaknesses of the REIT’s business. Instead of focusing solely on a REIT’s distribution yield, REITs investors should also look at other factors. Only then can they make a more informed investing decision with a REIT. Here are the important factors I look at.
