3 Risky REITs With the Highest Gearing
With the US Federal Reserve increasing interest rates three times last year, the cost of debt has increased substantially. Real estate investment trusts (REITs) typically have high gearing ratios, making them more susceptible to rate changes. With this in mind, I did a simple screen to find the three most highly-geared REITs in the market now. These REITs could potentially be most affected when they have to refinance their loans. REIT #1 ESR REIT  (SGX: J91U), formerly known as Cambridge Industrial Trust, has the unwanted distinction of topping this list. The REIT, which recently merged with Viva Industrial Trust, has a debt-to-asset ratio of 42.0%. This is just a whisker away from the 45% regulatory ceiling imposed on REITs in Singapore. Nevertheless, ESR REIT’s distribution per u

The Week in Numbers: Thailand Set to Become Hottest IPO Market in South-East Asia
Thailand is set to raise more than US$5 billion from initial public offerings (IPOs) in the second half of 2019. South-East Asia’s second-largest economy could see its largest IPO haul in six years, despite the economic jitters due to the inconclusive election results earlier this year. Tourism has been a key driver of growth for the Thai economy, with the country expecting a 7.5% increase in visitor arrivals this year. Thailand’s finance minister said that the country will introduce 20 billion baht (S$848.04 million) worth of economic measures to boost the consumption, tourism and help lower income earners.

REIT 4Q18 Report Card: 3 REITs Which You Can Expect More In FY19
In the last part of this 6-part series, we highlight three REITs that investors can expect more to come in FY19, despite an unsurprising performance in 4Q18. Investors Takeaway: 3 REITs Which You Can Expect More In FY19 CDL Hospitality Trust Despite FY18 net property income (NPI) declining by 3.8 percent year-on-year, CDL Hospitality Trust managed to surprise on its DPU. The weaker FY18 NPI was due to the closure of Dhevanafushi Maldives Luxury Resort in Maldives and the divestment of Mercure Brisbane and Ibis Brisbane. The New Zealand segment also suffered due to the absence of sporting events. DPU, however, increased by 0.4 percent, which was above expectations due to higher-than-expected capital distribution from the sale of Mercure and Ibis Brisbane. Going forward, CIMB forecasts Rev

ASEAN – Goldilocks Environment Seeing Increasing Investment Interests
As China’s GDP growth slowed down to a new norm of around 6.5 percent, other ASEAN countries such as Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam, and the Philippines have all achieved stronger growth than China in 2018, according to Asia Development Bank. Combined, ASEAN countries represent a substantial economic development bloc. As of 2018, the total population of the ten member states was over 651 million, close to half of China’s or India’s population. Its combined GDP, rat about US$3 trillion, is larger than India’s. The average Human Development Index of ASEAN was 0.701, meaning that the bloc as a whole was categorised as developed.

SI Research: Far East Hospitality Trust – Priced For Safety
The first quarter of 2019 has been kind to investors. At its highest, the local benchmark Straits Times Index returned a positive 7 percent, from the beginning of the year to late February.  However, as March draws to an end, the broader market started to sell-off once again and we see a higher probability of downward pressure going into 2Q19. Led by declines in the US, the latest sell-off was sparked off when the Federal Reserve paused interest rate hikes for the rest of 2019. Instead of cheering to the news, US investors fear that the Fed’s dovish turn was a result of an impending slowdown in the US economy.  As US investors piled on US treasuries, the yield curve finally inverted for the first time since the last crisis of 2007, on 22 March 2019.

Singapore investors are always looking for high-dividend stocks to invest in. While it may look lucrative to invest in companies with high dividends, we should also think about it from a risk standpoint – any investment that pays a higher return also tends to have higher risk.

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.

S-REIT Report Card: Here’s How Singapore REITs Performed In FY2018
The US Federal Reserve has indicated that 2019 will likely see slower interest rate hikes. This comes on the back of mounting macroeconomic uncertainties, that has seen investors turn to less risky investments. This may benefit REITs in three ways: # 1 Traditionally, REITs take on a lot of debt to fund its capital-intensive property investments. Slower interest rate hikes in 2019 will ease the growing pressure on REITs, in terms of debt repayment. # 2 Markets are efficient – which means that prices of REITs would have taken into consideration that rate hikes would continue as normal. This stance of slowing down the interest rate hikes in 2019 is new information for the market, and may give REITs a boost.

With all the earnings announcement done and dusted for the companies I’m vested in, it’s that time of the quarter where I’m ready to tally the amount of dividends that I will be receiving this quarter.For readers who are new to this blog, this is a sequence of exercise that I've been doing for the past few years usually after the earnings season ended. This tracking not only allows me to keep abreast of any development in the payout dates and the quantum amount but also more importantly reminds me of how far I’ve come since I embarked on this journey of dividend investing which is coming to almost a decade now. Since we are a household of 4, the incoming dividend also comes much handy when dealing with our increased household day to day spending.My Dividend Tree :)For tho

Here Are 5 Important Factors Singapore Investors Need To Consider Before Investing In Hospitality REITs
In many other countries, Airbnb has been the biggest disruption to the hospitality industry in recent years, providing travellers with a home away from home and sometimes a cheaper alternative to typical hotel rooms. However, in countries such as Singapore and Japan, strict government regulations on housing mean that hotels are still the go-to accommodation for inbound travellers. For Singapore, private homes have a minimum rental period of 3 consecutive months. For HDBs, the minimum rental period is even longer at 6 months. Other regulations such as a maximum number of tenants and occupants allowed in each flat also have to be adhered to.
