How to invest in Singapore REITs for passive income – a beginner’s guide
Retail investors are drawn to real estate investment trusts (also commonly known as REITs) because of the passive income they offer. Sinagpore REITs can fetch a decent yield, ranging between 5-8% per annum. While REITs are great vehicles to build a dividend portfolio, you will still need to pick the right ones at the right price in order to grow your portfolio and maximise your dividends. So what are REITs? REITs are investment trusts that pool investors’ money to buy and own income-producing real estate. These properties are leased out to tenants who, in turn, pay rental income to the REIT. Like all property investors, REITs can also acquire new properties, enhance and improve existing ones, or increase rental rates to grow their income. As an investor, you are entitled to

Case Studies for SREITs with Capital Distribution from Disposal
In previous post, I did calculations for DPU downfall for SREITs with more than 5% income support in their distribution. For this post, we will look at another aspect in which SREITs use its capital distribution to boost their DPU. I will only focus on SREITs with more than 5% capital distribution from disposal in their distribution.Before we start, we will need to set the definition right. There are quite a numbers of SREITs that used the phrase "capital distribution" in their Distribution Statement and this misled a lot of people to think that such dividend is from their cash holding. In fact, most "capital distribution" are refer to distributable income from oversea properties. In tax perspective, income from oversea properties is considered as "capital distribution".

4 Stocks This Week (STI Reserve List) [5 June 2020] Keppel DC; Suntec; Frasers Logistics & Commercial; Keppel REIT
It’s not every day that developments on the Singapore Exchange makes it to the public discourse. But this week it did, thanks to news of Singapore Press Holdings (SGX: T39) being kicked out of Singapore’s benchmark Straits Times Index (STI). This comes a week after SPH was removed from the MSCI Singapore Index.

These 30 companies account for more than 70% of the market capitalisation of the entire SGX. STI constituents are reviewed every quarter, and the index is reconstituted if stocks no longer qualify to remain on the index or are delisted.

Thoughts on Cuts to Your REIT’s Dividend Income – Part 1
There are probably 7 REITs that up to this point have announced their results or put out notes on their latest quarter of business development. 3 of the REITs have cut their latest quarter of dividend per unit that is distributed to shareholders. If you look at the dividend per unit cut, they are very drastic. What it shows is that based on the net cash flow that the REIT earned in the last quarter, they decide to pay out 50% to 80% less. The REITs that have announced but did not cut their dividends to this drastic extend are Keppel REIT, Keppel Pacific OAK, Parkway Life, Sabana, Keppel DC. The reason this is done is to conserve cash flow. The Singapore Government and Australian Government have announced that landlords cannot evict their tenants. They have provided land

COVID 19 - My Thoughts on SREITs Selection
Now, all of us should aware that government had announced for a lot workplaces to be closed on Tuesday and school to closed on Wednesday until 4th May. There are quite some numbers of companies are exempted though. From what I see, this closure is more on retail and office instead of industry and logistics.Extracted from Ministry of Trade & Industry Facebook PageDue to this COVID-19, hospitality REITs get the first impact, people couldn't travel due to travel restrictions imposed by different countries. This followed by retail REITs which affected due to tourism, social distancing and now closure of non-essential services. Office REIT would be affected too, though some can be mitigate with "work from home" practice. If this situation continue, eventually industrial and logistics w

Temasek Acquires Crisis Stock Keppel Corp (趁虚而入)
Temasek has offered partial acquisition to Keppel Corp (SGX: BN4) shareholders at the price of $7.35/share up to 51% ownership over 1 year period (with some conditions applied). Since this is not a full acquisition, some investors may be confused of what is fair price for Keppel Corp. Let’s study this acquisition offer in details. Temasek owns 20.45% of Keppel Corp, intending to purchase shares owned by remaining shareholders (100 – 20.45% = 79.55%) to top up to 51% (still need 51% – 20.45% = 30.55%). So, it is partial acquisition of 30.55/79.55 = 38.4%. It means for every 1000 shares, 384 unit will be acquired. The offer price of Temasek at $7.35 is about 20% premium over the average price before acquisition, aligned with several other acquisitions in S

The Margin REIT Strategy - A Strategy In Writing (Please Complete Reading The Article!)
I am never interested in margin before meeting J.To me, I always feel human emotions are unable to control the use of margin. Leverage is such a powerful seductive tool that I do not believe any person can escape from it once he/she touches it. Similarly, to believing justice will prevail, I believe in not giving margin a second look.Nevertheless, I met J recently and he showed me how he used margin to invest and achieved 10% gain p.a. since 2016. To be honest, 10% is not huge. But a consistent 10% is a relatively good return. He basically compares “margin investing” to buying a property. I specifically think it should be compared to buying a 2nd property. This is because his method requires us to consider rental income. I believe we seldom will rent out the 1st property out. The 2nd p
