4 Stocks This Week (REITs) [22 November 2019] – Ascendas India Trust; Keppel DC; Ascendas Hospitality; Mapletree Commercial
Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) are naturally popular with many Singapore investors given that property investment is big part of our economy.

Want Growth Plus Dividends? Buy These 3 REITs for Your Portfolio
Those who invest in REITs usually go for consistent and stable income. While REITs are normally viewed as yield-related investments, the well-run ones can boast an element of growth as well, achieved through various methods such as asset enhancement initiatives and mergers and acquisitions. REITs with strong sponsors and a history of growing their distribution per unit (DPU) over time can provide investors with the best of both worlds: capital gains over the long term as well as regular, stable cash inflows. The bonus here is not just a gain in the share price of the REIT as it grows its portfolio, but you’ll also enjoy higher DPU over time due to rental appreciation and a higher appraised value of the underlying properties. Here are three REITs to consider if you’re looking f

4 Types of Businesses Income Investors Will Love
Though there are many different kinds of businesses out there, only a few of them are able to pay out a consistent and predictable dividend. These types of businesses have stable operating characteristics and/or consistent demand for their products and services, which allows them to generate large amounts of free cash flow that can be used to pay out steady dividends. Income investors generally embrace such companies as their predictability and stability offer both peace of mind and a steady stream of dividends. However, investors should also note that such businesses could occasionally be subject to disruption from technology or new competitors, and there is still a constant need to keep an eye on the business to ensure it still enjoys great economic characteristics.

Bumitama Agri Ltd’s Stock Is on Sale Now! Here’s Why
Bumitama Agri Ltd. (SGX: P8Z) is a palm oil producer. The company has over 180,000 hectares of plantation land located in three provinces in Indonesia, namely Central Kalimantan, West Kalimantan, and Riau. Recently, the stock has tanked by 23% from its 52-week high price of S$0.74, mainly driven by challenges in the palm oil industry. On one hand, the current weak crude palm oil price means Bumitama’s performance in the near future will not be very exciting. Yet, the company is currently a trading at an attractive valuation. Here are two ways to look at it. Historical metrics One way to look at valuation is to compare a company’s current valuation to its historical one.

Keen on Growing Your Dividend Income? Buy These 3 REITs
Choosing the right REITs can be a tough task, as the REIT universe has expanded greatly in the last 10 years. REITs of every shape and size have popped up, while a few mergers have also taken place, making it a more plentiful but also confusing landscape for the enterprising investor. For myself, I prefer to look for REITs with great track records of paying consistent or growing distribution per unit (DPU) as well as clear growth catalysts. These catalysts could include recent acquisitions or a boost in footfall within the properties they own, which will eventually result in positive rental reversions. Identifying such REITs can take some time and effort as you work to develop a solid investment thesis. Investors who are keen to grow their dividend income over time might want to look more

Lendlease Global Commercial REIT: 10 Things You Should Know Before Subscribing
Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) are hugely popular investments in Singapore. The reasons for this lie in two key characteristics – 1) its focus on property investments, which Singaporeans just cannot get enough of, and 2) its ability to pay a good annual distribution yield of typically between 5% and 8%. It should come as no surprise that when a new $1.5 billion REIT initial public offering (IPO) is announced, there will be plenty of interest. To guide you in your assessment of whether to invest in Lendlease Global Commercial REIT’s IPO, here are 10 things you should know. # 1 What Is Lendlease Global Commercial REIT?

Looking for Solid Retirement Income? Buy These 3 REITs
For investors who are nearing retirement or looking to retire soon, one key characteristic they should look for in REITs is income stability. This means the REIT should have a track record of paying out a dependable and predictable distribution per unit (DPU) so as to provide investors with peace of mind and a good night’s sleep. The problem is that not every REIT makes a great investment, and investors need to be discerning when it comes to choosing a REIT they can hold on to for the long term. One factor to consider is the presence of a strong sponsor, as this can lower borrowing costs for the REIT and also provide it with a ready pipeline of properties for acquisition. You should also observe the track record of asset under management (AUM) growth and the stability of DPU over th

Mapletree Commercial Trust (MCT) share price on fire!
There you go. The protracted Hong Kong protests claimed its first casualty among the prestigious Straits Times Index (STI) when it was announced on 5 September 2019 that Hutchison Port Holding Trust (HPH) will be booted out of the index. Replacing HPH Trust will be Mapletree Commerical Trust (MCT). The move should be a bid to contain the fallout from the Hong Kong protests. And it is not difficult to see why HPH Trust was chosen for the axe. Currently, Hong Kong stocks make up 20% of the STI constituents. Other than HPH Trust (which was backed by the famous Li Ka Shing), the other five Hong Kong counters are all linked to the conglomerate Jardine Group – Hong Kong Land, Dairy Farm, Jardine C&C, JMH and JSH.

The Australian based group LendLease will be looking to a placement and public offer of 387 million units. The IPO price is set at S$0.88. In total, there will be 1,167 million units outstanding. This will make the market capitalization of LendLease Global Commercial REIT to be close to S$1.56 billion.

3 Companies That Have Given Shareholders Reasons to Smile
Last week, investors were finally given reason to cheer as China and the United States made peace-making gestures. Besides this, there was also some good news for investors of some Singapore-listed companies. Here are three companies that gave investors reason to smile. AEM Holdings Ltd (SGX: AWX) The semiconductor test handler provider announced that it has received S$280 million orders for delivery in 2019 and upped its guidance for full-year revenue to between S$285 million and S$305 million. This is an increase from its earlier announcement of S$255 million sales orders for delivery in 2019 and its previous guidance of between S$265 million and S$280 million. On the low end of its guidance and taking into account its first-half-year results, that translates to revenue of S$129.4 milli

Is Singapore’s Stock Market Cheap Currently?
Knowing the valuation of the Singapore stock market can help us to simplify our investing decision. There are two methods to determine if Singapore shares are cheap or expensive currently. The first way is to compare the market’s current price-to-earnings (PE) ratio to the market’s long-term average PE ratio. The second approach involves looking at the number of net-net stocks in the stock market. With that, let’s check out if the Singapore stock market is cheap or expensive. PE valuation method Since it is difficult to get the past daily PE ratios of the Straits Times Index, the PE ratios of SPDR STI ETF (SGX: ES3) can be used as a proxy. The SPDR STI ETF is an exchange-traded fund (ETF) that tracks the fundamentals of the Straits Times Index. As of 16 September 2019, t

3 Singapore Dividend Shares I Wouldn’t Touch in 2020 and Beyond
A high dividend-yielding company is always sure to attract many investors. However, not all companies with high dividend yields are great. Some have high yields due to poor business fundamentals, and that could result in falling dividend payouts in the future. The following three companies have got high yields, but I wouldn’t touch them with a ten-foot pole. I explain why below. Company No. 1 The first company on my list is Asian Pay Television Trust (SGX: S7OU). The trust’s business currently centres around its investment in Taiwan Broadband Communications Group, a leading cable operator in Taiwan.

The Week in Numbers: US-China Trade Deal on The Cards?
There was good news for investors as both the US and China made peace-making gestures to ease an already bruising trade war. China will exempt some agricultural products from the additional tariffs on US goods and will renew the purchase of US farm goods. China has bought US pork despite a 62% tariff imposed on pork since last year. Meanwhile, the US will delay a tariff increase on certain Chinese imports. President Trump tweeted on Wednesday that he will hold off on the 5% increase in tariffs on certain Chinese goods until October 15 from the original date of October 1. This was out of respect for the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. The US is calling for China to end what they believe to be unfair practices such as intellectual property theft, in

Chart of the Week: Mapletree Commercial Trust the King of STI REITs
The addition of Mapletree Commercial Trust (SGX: N2IU), or MCT, to Singapore’s Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) – set to take place in late September – was officially announced earlier this week. Surprisingly, given the dominance of REITs in the Singapore stock market, it will only be the fourth REIT to form part of the benchmark index and will replace the champion of shareholder value destruction; Hutchison Port Holdings Trust (SGX: NS8U). The other three REITs; Ascendas Real Estate Investment Trust (SGX: A17U), CapitaLand Commercial Trust (SGX: C61U) and CapitaLand Mall Trust (SGX: C38U) are all giants in their own right.

2 Top-Performing REITs That Have Been Added To Key Indices
Globally, real estate investment trusts (REITs) have performed well this year. The low-interest-rate environment and uncertainty surrounding geopolitical events have seen investors flock to the safe havens of REITs. It is, therefore, no surprise to see that two of the three best-performing constituents of the FTSE ST Mid Cap Index over the first eight months of 2019 were REITs. The two REITs were also rewarded with inclusion into key indices that will increase their profile to investors. Mapletree Commercial Trust (SGX: N2IU) will replace Hutchison Port Hldg Trust (SGX: NS8U) in the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI), while Frasers Centrepoint Trust (SGX: J69U) will become part of the FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Global Real Estate Index Series.  Here are some things to note about the Mapletree Com

5 Singapore REITs That Clocked Up Impressive Double-Digit Returns Year-to-Date
Investors who are looking for exposure to real estate investment trusts (REITs) often look for a myriad of factors when selecting one, such as the sustainability of the distribution per unit (DPU), asset type, occupancy level, and potential growth prospects, to name a few. Such aspects offer assurance that a REIT is well-managed and has strong long-term growth prospects. Singapore Exchange, or SGX, has written on the five best-performing Singapore REITs (S-REITs) in the first seven months of this year (year-to-date). Though unit price performance does not always imply a well-run business, it offers investors a good platform for doing their initial research and due diligence.
