These 2 REITS Delivered Strong Performances In 2018
The current earnings season is winding down, and I’ve been watching as companies and real estate investment trusts (REITs) report their full-year 2018 results. Today, I’m looking at two REITs that produced good results. First up is CapitaLand Mall Trust (SGX: C38U). The REIT currently has 15 shopping malls that are mostly located in the suburban areas and downtown core of Singapore. The malls include Tampines Mall, Junction 8, Funan, IMM Building, Plaza Singapura, and Bugis Junction. For 2018, CapitaLand Mall Trust reported that gross revenue was up 2.2% to S$697.5 million and net property income (NPI) grew 3.2% to S$125.7 million.

REIThinking Your Investment Strategy
After steadily raising interest rates for the past 2 years, the Fed is indicating that it could take a pause from more interest rate hikes. The officials are signalling that they will wait and monitor the market before deciding whether the economy is strong enough for another rate hike. With interest rate risk deflating and the flight to safety trend, most S-REITs are showing significant positive return over end-2018 share price. KGI notes that this will continue to be the dominant trend moving forward. As such, despite recent capital gains, KGI believes that the current valuation of S-REITs is still moderately attractive for investors to enter into S-REIT investments.

Top 10 Singapore REITs that made you money if you invested from their IPOs (updated 2019)
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 41.5 cents per share at time of writing. 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.

S-REIT Report Card: Here’s How Singapore REITs Performed In FY2018
The US Federal Reserve has indicated that 2019 will likely see slower interest rate hikes. This comes on the back of mounting macroeconomic uncertainties, that has seen investors turn to less risky investments. This may benefit REITs in three ways: # 1 Traditionally, REITs take on a lot of debt to fund its capital-intensive property investments. Slower interest rate hikes in 2019 will ease the growing pressure on REITs, in terms of debt repayment. # 2 Markets are efficient – which means that prices of REITs would have taken into consideration that rate hikes would continue as normal. This stance of slowing down the interest rate hikes in 2019 is new information for the market, and may give REITs a boost.

Quick Thought Of The Week: Disruption
Hedge-fund managers are complaining that quantitative and algorithmic traders are stealing their lunches. Better known as quants and algos, these traders employ sophisticated techniques to exploit, what they believe, are opportunities in the market. They might sell in huge quantities, when they believe market conditions are suggesting weakness. They might buy when they think conditions are favourable. They might use high-frequency trading mechanisms to execute their orders. That could cause markets to behave erratically, at best. Flash crashes, at worst. It’s making life unbearable for hedge funds, who by comparison are like pussy cats playing in a lion’s den. They would prefer more predictable markets, where their long and short strategies are less likely to be disrupted. So, they wan

The Biggest REIT in Singapore and Its Counterpart in Malaysia

1 Key Financial Ratio to Help in Your Investment Decision-Making
Of the many tools and financial metrics investors use for their corporate analysis, one of the most useful has to be the return on equity (ROE). This ratio measures the profitability of the business per dollar of equity and is usually expressed as a percentage. The basic formula for ROE is relatively simple to understand: Take the net profit after tax of the business and divide it by the total equity of the company. American conglomerate DuPont has come up with a formula to further break down the ROE formula into three separate components in order to deepen the analysis and provide more insights. The ROE equation can be further split into the following: ROE = Net Profit Margin x Asset Turnover x Financial Leverage Let’s look at each component in turn. Net profit margin The net profit

Why Investors Should Look at the Cash Conversion Cycle of a Company
Every company juggles its receivables, inventory, and payables in different ways, and this is also determined, in part, by the nature and characteristics of the industry in which it operates. One method investors can use to determine how all of these attributes come together is to analyse the cash conversion cycle of a business. The formula is as follows: Cash Conversion Cycle (CCC) = receivables turnover (days) + inventory turnover (days) – payables turnover (days) Let’s now look at each component and how to make use of the CCC.

10 things I learned from the 2019 Frasers Centrepoint Trust AGM
Frasers Centrepoint Trust (FCT) is a SGX-listed retail REIT that owns six suburban retail malls located around Singapore. They include Anchorpoint, YewTee Point, Causeway Point, Northpoint City North Wing, Bedok Point, and Changi City Point. As at 30 September 2018, FCT’s portfolio of properties was valued at S$2.75 billion. FCT has been on our watchlist for some time now and with good reason too – since its IPO in 2006, the REIT has achieved 12 consecutive years of distribution growth. At the same time, the market is well aware of FCT’s remarkable track record which makes buying opportunities for FCT hard to come by.

Is Investing Just All About Numbers?
Whenever a topic on investment is brought up, many people automatically assume that it involves a lot of numbers. This is a natural instinct as accounting is the language of business, and financial statements basically tell investors everything they need to know about the state of the company and its financial health. Investors who may not be numerically-inclined may be put off by this assumption as they may feel that investing is tough to grasp. However, I would argue that investing is more than just numbers; in fact, it involves a study of facts, people and also one’s own psychology. The Quantitative Aspect Of Investing Investing involves several key aspects, and the quantitative aspect is the most prominent of all.

3 Things to Consider Before You Invest Your CPF Money
For many Singaporeans, their Central Provident Fund (CPF) may contain the bulk of their savings. Besides the 20% of one’s paycheck that each individual has to contribute each month, employers are also required to contribute an additional 17%, which adds up to 37% of your stated monthly salary. As such, your CPF account can grow reasonably quickly. As it stands, most Singaporeans either do not touch their CPF money and let it accrue interest, or they take the money out to pay for their Housing Development Board (HDB) home or other properties. This is a reasonable use of CPF funds. However, there are many other ways you can make use of your CPF.
