Mapletree Logistics Trust’s AGM: 5 Country Insights
Mapletree Logistics Trust (SGX: M44U) is an Asia-focused logistics REIT that has a sizeable portfolio of 141 properties across Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, China, Australia, South Korea, Malaysia, and Vietnam. Its portfolio of properties is worth just shy of S$8 billion and it has rewarded unitholders over the longer term with a consistently increasing distribution per unit (DPU). I was able to attend the REIT’s AGM on Monday – it was the REIT’s 10th overall and FY18/19 (fiscal year ended 31 March 2019) was broadly solid. The CEO of the REIT manager, Ng Kiat, was in attendance to present and answer questions. One particular area I thought would be of interest to unitholders (as well as prospective investors) was its exposure to five different countries within Asia. Let’s

3 Things to Love About CapitaLand Commercial Trust’s Q2 2019 Earnings
CapitaLand Commercial Trust (SGX: C61U) is Singapore’s largest commercial real estate investment trust (REIT) with a portfolio of properties in Singapore and Germany. The REIT just announced its financial results for the second quarter ended 30 June 2019 (Q2 2019). Here are three things from its earnings which really stood out for me. Growth in distribution per unit CapitaLand Commercial Trust’s gross revenue for the reporting period rose 3% year on year to S$101.0 million. The better performance was mainly due to the acquisition of Gallileo in Germany and higher revenue from 21 Collyer Quay, Asia Square Tower 2, and Capital Tower. However, these were offset by Twenty Anson’s sale, and lower revenue from Bugis Village and Six Battery Road. Due to a larger increase in property opera

It’s Time To Switch Back To Liquid Large Caps (Part 1)
Following a dismal 1Q19 where there were more misses than beats against consensus estimates, CIMB thinks that the tide has now shifted towards earnings predictability, value and yield in 2Q19 results.

Based on these three investment themes, CIMB has highlighted its top eight picks. In the first part of this two-part series, we will focus on the S-REIT and property plays: CapitaLand Commercial Trust, Mapletree Commercial Trust, Suntec REIT and UOL Group.

REIT 1Q19 Report Card: 2 Growth REITs To Look At
In this second part of the series, we dive into two REITs that have been singled out as REITs with a strong DPU growth profile. Investors Takeaway: 2 REITs To Add The Growth Element To Your Portfolio Keppel REIT While Keppel REIT showed good momentum in 1Q19, it still fell short of consensus forecast. The impact of occupancy changes, weaker Australian dollar and lower contributions from Ocean Financial Centre led to a 2.1 percent year-on-year decline in distribution per unit (DPU). As a result, DPU fell short of market expectations, despite firm conditions in the Singapore office segment. That said, rising office rent and positive firm leasing momentum amid tight supply should underpin future earnings for the REIT. Keppel REIT has also announced its proposed acquisition of T Tower in Sou

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. City Strategic, also a subsidiary of CDL, purchase a substantial stake in IREIT itself. In November 2016, Tikehau Capital purchased a 80% stake in IReit’s manager. The rest of the stake is held by Chinese Tycoon Tong Jinquan and Soilbuild founder Lim Chap Huat. Tong Jinquan owns 297 mil units (47%), Chap Huat owns 33 mil units (5.2%), Tikehau Capital owns 52.6 mil (8.3%). In this deal, Tikehau Investment Asia Pacific bought back Tong’s stake in the manager.

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.

10% and beyond – how to earn a double-digit dividend yield from your investments
Whenever you mention income investing (or dividend investing) to certain investors, they may reply with one of many possible responses: “Dividends? I’m only earning 2-3% a year. That’s too low.” “If I’m earning a 3% dividend yield, I’ll need a large investment for my dividends to be worthwhile.” “I can make higher returns investing in growth stocks.” Do these sound familiar to you? Income investing is often viewed as a ‘slow and steady’ way to invest. If you look at the Straits Times Index, a basket of the 30 largest companies in Singapore, its dividend yield is only 3.60% (as at 28 February 2019). It’s a similar story in Malaysia and the U.S. – the FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI currently yields 3.18% and the S&P 500 yields 1.
