Cache Logistics Trust to be gobbled up by Mapletree Logistics Trust?
Analysing Cache Logistics Trust is not easy. And it is not because of its business scale. In fact, with only 27 properties, Cache Logistics Trust is the smallest player among Ascendas REIT and Mapletree Logistics Trust. The difficulty in understanding Cache Logistics Trust is because the past two years had been such a whirlwind for this S-REIT that one wonders how on earth this S-REIT managed to stay the course till now. When debt-laden HNA Group acquired the previous Sponsor of Cache Logistics Trust (CWT Limited) in 2017, it was a sign of things to come. In 2018, CWT sold off all its stake in Cache Logistics Trust to the manager, ARA. Currently, ARA is the largest shareholder of this S-REIT, with stake amounting to 9.6%. With a market capitalization of merely $783 million, Cache Logistic

Mapletree Logistics Trust (MLT) a dream or nightmare in the making?
Crisis? What crisis? Mapletree Logistics Trust (MLT) rubbished all talks of market downturn as its unit price went on a rampant to smash a record high in July 2019. What a magnificent run! Christmas certainly come early for MLT as it went on a billion dollar shopping spree. Not that investors are complaining of course as the unit price rocketed to a stunning high of $1.65 on 5 July 2019. Subsequently, the unit price was brought down to earth to the current level of $1.60. Those who had bought MLT during its IPO in 2005 would have no regrets. Its public offer of 357.4 million units at $0.68 per unit was 43.88 times over-subscribed, reflecting the strong demand for the REIT. Over the years, the management had delivered the goods as the unit price of Mapletree Logistics Trust climbed steadily

These 4 Billion-Dollar REITs Recently Announced DPU-Accretive Acquisitions
While most investors invest in REITs to obtain a steady stream of dividend income, the fact is that REITs also grow over time, either through organic means (through asset enhancement initiatives or renovations) or through mergers and acquisitions. Acquisitions are a favoured method because it will instantly provide a boost to both asset size (and value) and usually also comes with an increase in distribution per unit (DPU). Investors need to be discerning though – not all acquisitions are beneficial for the REIT. Some assets may be sub-par, and even for quality assets, REITs may also end up over-paying for them, resulting in value destruction for existing unitholders. Investors should carefully size up the facts and figures relating to each acquisition to assess if it boosts the ove

Which Industrial REIT Offers the Best Investment Prospects?
With the REITs’ reporting season just over, investors who are searching for a strong REIT to invest in may be drawn to the stable of industrial REITs listed on the local stock exchange. Industrial REITs may make great investments if their portfolios consist of quality, well-located assets with long land tenure. Consistently strong demand for industrial space should prop up rental rates and ensure positive rental reversion over time, leading to higher distribution per unit (DPU) for investors. I decided to look at which industrial REIT offers the best investment prospects, choosing from five REITs that are well-known in the industrial space and have good historical track records. They are ESR-REIT (SGX: J91U), Mapletree Logistics Trust (SGX: M44U), Mapletree Industrial Trust (SGX: ME

3 Solid Reasons Investors Should Like Mapletree Logistics Trust
Mapletree Logistics Trust (SGX: M44U) is a real estate investment trust (REIT) that owns 137 logistics properties around Asia and Australia. There are three good reasons for investors to like the REIT now. A solid track record One of the very first things to like about MLT is its solid historical financial performance. Over the last five years, MLT has grown its gross revenue from S$330.1 million in FY14/15 to S$454.3 million in FY18/19. Similarly, its distributable income grew from S$184.9 million to S$270.0 million during the period. Consequently, distribution per unit (DPU) grew from 7.500 Singapore cents in FY14/15 to 7.941 Singapore cents in FY18/19. Such numbers should be appealing to investors looking for investments with sustainable income, but can MLT sustain its historical

Better Buy: Mapletree Logistics Trust vs Cache Logistics Trust
Mapletree Logistics Trust (SGX: M44U) and Cache Logistics Trust (SGX: K2LU) are both real estate investment trusts (REITs) in Singapore’s stock market that focus on logistics properties. But over the past five years, the two REITs have given their investors very different experiences. In that time, Mapletree Logistics Trust’s shares have produced a dividend-adjusted return of 80% and significantly outperformed Singapore’s stock market benchmark, the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI), which climbed by 12% after including gains from dividends. Meanwhile, Cache Logistics Trust’s shares have delivered a 5% loss. Will Mapletree Logistics Trust continue to be the better investment compared to Cache Logistics Trust for the next five years?

3 Reasons Why Cache Logistics Trust’s Dividend Will Likely Fall
Right now, Cache Logistics Trust’s (SGX: K2LU) share price of S$0.73 gives it a high dividend yield of 8.0%, based on its trailing dividend of 5.811 Singapore cents per share. In fact, Cache Logistics Trust has one of the highest yields among the real estate investment trusts (REITs) in Singapore’s stock market. (Technically, a REIT has a unit price, not a share price, and it doles out a distribution, not a dividend – but let’s not split hairs here!) But any investor who’s attracted to Cache Logistics Trust for its high dividend yield should be aware of the risks involved. Here are three reasons why I think the REIT’s dividend will likely fall in the future. Business background Cache Logistics Trust is managed by ARA Asset Management, a company that was

4 REITs That Have Seen Impressive 10-Year Increases in Their DPU
Investors choose to invest in real estate investment trusts (REITs) mainly for income, as REITs are investment vehicles that own income-generating properties. These properties provide steady, consistent and recurring rental income for the REIT, and regulations stipulate that 90% of a REIT’s earnings have to be paid out as distributions to unitholders. While the stability of a REIT’s distribution is a key attraction for investors, an added bonus will be REITs that are able to deliver consistent increases in their distribution per unit (DPU) over the long-term. Such REITs engage in a variety of methods to grow both their asset bases and their DPU. Such methods include organic growth initiatives such as asset enhancement initiatives and positive rental reversions, as well as acqu

10 things I learned from the 2019 Mapletree Logistics Trust AGM
Mapletree Logistics Trust (MLT) is Singapore’s first Asia Pacific-focused logistics real estate investment trust with a portfolio of 141 properties in Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, China, Australia, South Korea, Malaysia and Vietnam. As of 31 March 2019, MLT’s portfolio was valued at S$8.0 billion. To me, warehouses used to be a regular commodity. However, the rise of e-commerce has given certain logistic properties a competitive advantage over others – especially those in prime locations near logistic hubs that can expedite same-day delivery to customers. Over the past two decades, Hong Kong has seen a migration of warehouses towards the northwest New Territories, from Hong Kong Island and Kwun Tong to the Kwai Tsing/Tsuen Wan district which are close to cargo terminals and

The re-escalating US-China trade war spate has emphasized the importance for manufacturing operations to diversify out of China. One of the prime destinations to achieve such economic sense is Vietnam.

Furthermore, with Vietnam’s trade surplus against the US, US is also keen to entertain more trade with Vietnam. Here are six Singapore stocks that offers investors exposure to the Vietnamese market.

Unfortunately, banks have to comply with secrecy laws and even with my mum's marriage certificate, the bank cannot even let us know whether the account would exist.
