3 Best-Performing Singapore REITs in the Last Three Years
There are 34 Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), five stapled trusts and three property trusts listed on Singapore’s stock exchange. The sector has a combined market capitalisation of nearly S$100 billion, with Retail, Industrial and Office REITs making up the largest segments. In general, the REIT structure is one of Singapore investors’ favourite investment vehicles, mainly due to the predictability of their earnings over the long term. Yet, not all REITs are created equally, and some perform stronger than the rest over the longer term. In this article, I’ll look at three best-performing Singapore REITs in the last three years (data as of 26 April 2019). REIT 1 The first REIT on our list is Mapletree Logistics Trust (SGX: M44U).

This Small Cap’s Share Price Surged 24% Last Year. Is It a Good Business?
JB Foods Ltd (SGX: BEW) is a food company focusing on the production and sale of cocoa ingredient products, namely, cocoa butter, cocoa powder, cocoa mass and cocoa cake. At its current price of S$0.68, the company’s stock has risen 24% in the last twelve months. This captured my attention and got me interested in finding out more about the company. In particular, I want to understand: Does it have a high-quality business? This question is important. If JB Foods has a high-quality business, its current low share price could be an investment opportunity. Unfortunately, there’s no easy answer to the question. But, a simple metric can help shed some light on the question: the return on invested capital (ROIC). A brief introduction to the ROIC In a previous article of mine, I explained how

Quick Thought Of The Week: Transitory
It only took one ten-letter word from the US Federal Reserve to unsettle an entire market. That word was “transitory”. The word seems innocuous enough. It means temporary, brief, short-lived, passing and momentary. In other words, it means that something isn’t going to be around for a long time…. …. but when the term is applied to the low inflation rates we are experiencing, it has far-reaching implications. The market was expecting – or should that be betting – that the Fed would cut interest rates at its latest meeting. They were lulled into believing that the Fed would bend to the wishes of the White House. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise to anyone that the Trump administration has been pushing for a 1% cut in interest rates and a resumption of Quant

Institutional Investors Have Been Buying These 2 Billion-Dollar Singapore REITs
There are many ways to find investment ideas. Some useful ways are to screen for stocks or to look at a list of stocks near their 52-week lows to sieve out potential bargains. Studying what institutional investors have been buying or selling is another avenue. Institutional investors are typically large investment organisations such as hedge funds, mutual funds, unit trust companies, sovereign wealth funds, insurance companies and so on. These investors tend to possess vastly greater resources than individual investors like you and me when researching stocks. Hence, it may be useful to keep a close eye on what they are doing, as a way to generate ideas. In this article, I will look at two Singapore REITs that have seen the highest net purchase in dollar value by institutional investors for

2 REITs to Watch This Week
This week, another few real estate investment trusts (REITs) will be releasing results for the first quarter of 2019. REIT prices have shot up this year, in part due to the United States Federal Reserve’s more dovish stance on interest rates. With that in mind, I will be keeping an eye on two REITs, in particular, that will be releasing results soon – CDL Hospitality Trust (SGX: J85) and Ascott Residence Trust (SGX: A68U). Turnaround on the cards? CDL Hospitality Trust owns 19 properties across eight countries. The hospitality-focused trust reported slightly disappointing numbers in the fourth quarter of 2018 with net property income and distribution per security falling 5.4% and 2.1% respectively. The drop was partly due to divestments of two hotels in Australia and the closure of Dhe

3 Investment Strategies To Jumpstart Your Portfolio In 2Q19
In the first quarter of 2019, local benchmark Straits Times Index ended flat as investors juggled between worries about higher US recession risks and the impending outcome of the US-China trade talks. The only bright spot was the S-REIT sector as it outperformed on the Fed’s dovish interest rate hike forecast. The slowdown in hike came from lower GDP growth expectations and rising unemployment, leading to the inversion of US yield curve to heighten recession fears.

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.
