The 3 Best Performing REITs In 2017
The Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) started 2017 at 2,881 points and ended the year 18.1% higher at 3,403. Yet, this healthy return does not imply that all types of stocks in the local market did well. Fortunately for investors who like real estate investment trusts, 2017 was a year in which REITs had a respectable performance; in the 12 months ended 8 January 2018, REITs in Singapore’s market had produced a return of around 18%. But this being said, not every REIT had generated double-digit returns in the past year. This article is the first in a short series which will look at the best and worst performing REITs in 2017. It will focus on three REITs that produced a good return in the year. The first one on the list is Mapletree Greater China Commercial Trust (SGX: RW0U), a REIT tha

7 Things Investors Should Know About How Different Sectors Performed In The Stock Market Over The Past Year
The Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) started 2017 at 2,881 points and ended the year 18.1% higher at 3,403. Yet, this healthy return does not imply that all types of stocks in the local market did well. In this article, I want to share some information about how different sectors (as defined by the Global Industry Classification Standard, or GICS) had performed over the past year, based on data published by stock exchange operator Singapore Exchange. Here they are: 1. In the 12 months ended 8 January 2018,  the two best performing sectors in our local stock market were Materials and Information Technology. The former was up by 110%, whilst the latter was up by 103%. 2. For the same period in the first point, the two worst performing sectors were Energy and Telecommunication Services.

Riskiest REITs based on their beta
The Singapore stock exchange has many REITs to choose from and investors usually base their buying decision on dividend yields. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); But how many have stopped to think of the risk of a REIT? What is risk? By risk, I mean how much the price of a REIT fluctuates. I.e. its volatility In the finance world, the term beta is used to measure how volatile a stock is. In this regard, volatility is synonymous with risk. Higher volatility = higher risk. The market used in this context is the STI index. In other contexts, it can be used to mean the general market such as the S&P500 or Dow Jones. A beta of 1 indicates that a stock, or REIT’s price moves lockstep with the market. A beat of less than 1 means that the REIT is less volatile th

6 REITs Analysts Are Watching Following 3Q17 Earnings (Part 2)
Earlier in the first part of this two-part series, we highlighted Frasers Centrepoint Trust, Mapletree Industrial Trust and Keppel REIT following recommendations from analysts. In the second part of this series, we continue to highlight another three REITs that have been recommended by analysts following their quarterly earnings announcement. Click here to read part one. 1. Mapletree Greater China Commercial Trust (MAGIC) Since DBS Research’s recommendation in April, MAGIC has been rallying. However, DBS Research notes that MAGIC’s share price rally can continue, citing the improving macro conditions in Hong Kong. The discount of MAGIC against its Hong Kong peers is another driver for the rally. Attractively valued, but underappreciated by the market One of the key reasons for DBS

4 REITs With Overseas Exposure You Might Want To Watch
1. First REIT The REIT’s 3Q17 results fell within fair estimates, thanks to its portfolio of hospitals and rental income from South-east Asia. A distribution per unit (DPU) accretive acquisition finished on 10 Oct 2017 on top of a possible joint acquisition of another DPU-accretive development in Indonesia bodes well for the REIT. Moreover, on the back of Bloomberg’s consensus estimate for the Consumer Price Index (CPI) to expand by 0.8% year-on-year, First REIT’s acquisitions should propel it even further ahead. As First REIT’s current price-book ratio is significantly lower than its peer Parkway Life REIT, OCBC Research upgraded its previous HOLD call on First REIT (SGX: AW9U) to BUY with a target price of $1.44 (up from $1.38 previously). 2.

Investing in REIT ETFs Listed In Singapore: 5 Things You Need To Know
In the past, we’ve talked a lot about investing in real estate investment trusts (REITs) as well as investing in exchange traded funds (ETFs). Here, we look at an increasingly popular investment combining these two types of investments – REIT ETFs. In just about a one-year period, three REIT ETFs have listed in Singapore. This comes on the back of the Lion-Phillip S-REIT ETF which will list on 30 October 2017 after the NikkoAM-Straits Trading Asia Ex Japan REIT ETF and the Phillip SGX APAC Dividend Leaders REIT ETF which listed on 29 March 2017 and 20 October 2016 respectively. We should not be surprised by more companies trying to introduce such investment products here mainly because they combine several characteristics investors in Singapore love. Namely, investing in properties; re

5 things to know about the Lion-Phillip S-REIT ETF before you invest
Lion Global Investors and Phillip Capital are due to launch the Lion-Phillip S-REIT ETF on the SGX on 30 October 2017. (The Initial Offer Period is open now until 17 Oct for investors who are interested in subscribing early.) The ETF is the very first exchange-traded fund in the world that invests purely in Singapore REITs. S-REITs have been (and still are) a popular investment vehicle for investors seeking relatively high and stable dividend yield. The expected yield for S-REITs in 2017 is around 6%, and that’s just for dividends alone; the average year-to-date price performance for S-REITs is 14%. There are currently 38 REITs in Singapore and, suffice to say, it’s easy to see why they are so well-liked by investors. Someone who doesn’t like to bother with stock picking can simply i
