2 REITs With Steady Returns That Are Trading Below Their Book Values
Benjamin Graham, author of the “The Intelligent Investor” and mentor to legendary investor Warren Buffett, was a keen believer of investing in securities with a low price-to-book ratio. The price-to-book ratio or PB ratio is a comparison between how much one is paying for the security and its net asset value. In theory, buying a stock that trade at a discount to its book value is like buying a $1 coin for less than a dollar. Investors would be able to reap a return when the market realises the discrepancy and raises the share price to its fair value. This method of valuation is especially useful for real estate investment trusts (REITs) or companies with largely tangible assets on its books. With that, here are two REITs with steady distributions that are trading below their book value

Governance of trusts: sunny, with a chance of isolated showers
First published in Business Times on 1 August, 2018 By Mak Yuen Teen and Chew Yi Hong Last year, we launched the Governance Index for Trusts (GIFT), the first-ever published governance index in Singapore that is specifically developed for listed real estate investment trusts (Reits) and business trusts (BTs) in Singapore. GIFT assesses both governance and business risk factors. We assessed 43 trusts. This year, we covered 44 trusts, comprising six that are constituted as stapled securities (SS), nine pure business trusts and 33 Reits. We excluded four newly-listed trusts that have not yet published an annual report at the cut-off date. Some changes were made to the index, including the addition of a small number of new demerit criteria, and replacing volatility of returns with a criterion

8 Different Types of REITs and Stapled Trusts Listed in Singapore
There are around 40 real estate investment trusts (REITs) and stapled trusts in Singapore currently. As highlighted here, the REITs and six stapled trusts had an average distribution yield of 6.7%, as of 6 July 2018. The figure is an average, so some REITs will have an above-average yield while others will be below-average.

5 Things To Know About The Singapore REIT Market Now
Real estate investment trusts (REITs) and stapled trusts are investment vehicles that invest in a portfolio of income-producing real estates. Besides its requirement to distribute at least 90% of distributable income, REITs also enjoy tax benefits that other property stocks do not. As such, unitholders enjoy stable and consistent distributions each year. Many of the REITs also offer distribution reinvestment schemes, allowing unitholders to easily reinvest their distributions.

S-REITs Aren’t Bonds, So Stop Pricing Them As One Investors and the market have been taking a cautious stance towards REITs due to rising interest rates and expensive valuations over the last five years.

Institutional Investors Have Been Selling These 3 Stocks
There are many ways to find investment ideas. Some useful methods are to screen for stocks or to look at a list of stocks near their 52-week lows to sieve out potential bargains. Studying what institutional investors have been buying or selling is another avenue. Institutional investors are typically large investment organisations, such as hedge funds, mutual funds, unit trust companies, sovereign wealth funds, insurance companies and so on. These investors tend to possess vastly greater resources than individual investors like you and me when researching stocks. Hence, it may be useful to keep a close eye on what they are doing, as a way to generate ideas.
