Although trade talks are ongoing and there may still be possibilities for a deal, economists and analysts are anticipating that ramifications are beginning to bite.

8 things I learned from the 2019 CDL Hospitality Trust AGM
CDL Hospitality Trust (CDLHT) is a REIT that invests in hospitality-related assets such as hotels and resorts. It currently owns 19 properties with a total of 5,088 hotel rooms across eight countries, namely Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and Maldives. Singapore remains CDLHT’s largest revenue contributor, accounting for 60% of net property income. As of 31December 2018, these properties were valued at S$2.8 billion. Despite growth in incoming tourist numbers over the past few years, the Singapore hospitality sector has been weak due to an uptick in supply. This caused local hotel room rates to decline over the past four years. With supply growth expected to ease going forward, the hospitality sector is finally seeing signs of recovery. With

4 Sectors To Watch Out For In 2H19 (Part 2)
Following part one of this 2-part series where we highlight two of the key sectors (Financials, Industrials) to watch out for in the Singapore market, we zoom into Singaporeans’ favourite REIT sub-sectors.

REIT 1Q19 Report Card: 3 Underperforming REITs With Better Mid-term Outlook
In the last part of this 4-part series, we focus on three REITs that underperformed in the latest quarter. But while these three REITs failed to bring any cheers to investors in 1Q19, analysts believe that the medium term outlook for these REITs remain bright. Investors Takeaway: 3 Underperforming REITs With Better Mid-term Outlook Suntec REIT Despite lower gross revenue and net property income, Suntec REIT managed to come in line with consensus expectations as higher associate and JV contributions, greater finance income and capital top-up helped Suntec REIT to put in a decent 1Q19 performance. The fall in gross revenue was due to lower convention income as Suntec REIT took a hit from fewer convention events being hosted in the last quarter. Higher sinking fund contribution also drove n

IREIT Global Evolving with CDL’s Involvement – My Take on this 7.4% Yielder
At the end of April, City REIT Management, a subsidiary of City Development Ltd (CDL) purchase 50% of IREIT’s manager.

The Fed and ECB Are Making Yield Plays In Fashion, Again
Earlier this month, the US Federal Reserve came to a decision to maintain a larger balance sheet relative to the pre-2008 crisis period. This decision to end quantitative tightening came earlier after much internal deliberation. Revising Balance Sheet Normalisation Principles The Fed also announced the revision and replacement of its balance sheet normalisation principles. It will cease downsizing its balance sheet starting from October 2019. It will focus on holding treasury securities while its holdings of mortgage-backed securities gradually run-off to zero. Starting from October 2019, principal repayments received from mortgage-backed securities would be reinvested in treasury securities, subject to a maximum of US$20 billion per month.

REIT 4Q18 Report Card: 3 REITs Which You Can Expect More In FY19
In the last part of this 6-part series, we highlight three REITs that investors can expect more to come in FY19, despite an unsurprising performance in 4Q18. Investors Takeaway: 3 REITs Which You Can Expect More In FY19 CDL Hospitality Trust Despite FY18 net property income (NPI) declining by 3.8 percent year-on-year, CDL Hospitality Trust managed to surprise on its DPU. The weaker FY18 NPI was due to the closure of Dhevanafushi Maldives Luxury Resort in Maldives and the divestment of Mercure Brisbane and Ibis Brisbane. The New Zealand segment also suffered due to the absence of sporting events. DPU, however, increased by 0.4 percent, which was above expectations due to higher-than-expected capital distribution from the sale of Mercure and Ibis Brisbane. Going forward, CIMB forecasts Rev

4Q18 Earnings Roundup: 9 Gems To Invest In If You Are Looking For Quality (Part 1)
For the past seven quarters, STI failed to beat earnings expectations as there were more misses than beats. However, in 4Q18, STI finished the quarter where the beats exceeded misses. That being said, the quality was less than ideal with most of the beats coming from one-off gains. Besides that, conservative estimates also helped some STI stocks to emerge as beats.

Go For Laggard REIT Plays If You Seek Alpha
S-REITs have been putting up an outstanding performance against the rest of the Singapore market. The outperformance of the SREITs so far has been due to the contribution of large and selective mid-cap REITs. DPU Growth Outlook Starting To Look Stronger Moving forward, the distribution per unit (DPU) outlook for the REIT sector continues to remain strong. CIMB projects that DPU will grow 1-2 percent in 2019 and 2020, which was stronger than the 0.5 percent growth registered in 2018. The growth will be achieved through a combination of positive rental growth as well as contributions from new acquisitions made in 2018.

Will Datapulse Shareholders Be Haunted By The Seoul Hotel?
By Mak Yuen Teen On 14 March 2019, Datapulse Technology Limited’s (“Datapulse”) shareholders will vote on the company’s proposed acquisition of Hotel Aropa in Seoul, together with six other resolutions. Before going into the resolutions, we should reflect on what has taken place up to now. In November 2017, Ms Ng Siew Hong (NSH) bought 29 percent of the shares at 55 cents per share, at a more than 50 percent premium. Soon after, Datapulse bought Wayco, which it is now selling back after incurring considerable fees and expenses.  This was a deal recommended by NSH. Did NSH pay 55 cents per share to get Datapulse to buy Wayco (and possibly the other Way Group companies) because she truly believed that Wayco and the hair case business was the future for Datapulse? In my opinion, the
