What Happens When A Publicly Listed Company Gets Privatised?

Besides their high and consistent yields, REITs also give investors exposure to real estate at a fraction of the cost it takes to buy an actual property in Singapore. That said, not all REITs perform equally. Some have the potential for long-term sustained high returns, while others will lag the market. So how do we separate the wheat from the chaff?

The Week Ahead: CMT, CCT, Keppel Corp and SGX
The Singapore earnings season moves into a higher gear with four blue chips pencilled in for results. In October, CapitaLand Mall Trust (SGX: C38U) defied sceptics by announcing a 5% increase in third-quarter distributions. The mall operator reported an improvement in gross revenues, net property income and tenant sales per square foot. However, shopper traffic was down. CapitaLand Commercial Trust (SGX: C61U) also had good news for unit holders in October. The office landlord announced a near 9% rise in third-quarter distributions per unit on the back of better gross revenues and net property income.

Is Keppel Corporation Limited A Bargain Now?
Keppel Corporation Limited (SGX: BN4) is a Singapore-listed industrial conglomerate. Its interests lie in four main areas, namely, property, offshore and marine, infrastructure and investments. Between 1 Jan and 31 Dec 2018, Keppel’s share price dropped by 16.4% compared to a fall of 6.5% for the STI Index (SGX: ^STI). So, is it a bargain? Four separate metrics, namely, the price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio, the price-to-book (P/B) ratio, the dividend yield and the net debt-to-equity ratio could provide some clues. Keppel has a trailing twelve months (TTM) earnings per share of S$0.18. But if one-off costs are excluded, then the TTM earnings would be S$0.52. With the conglomerate’s current share price standing at S$6.25, this implies a P/E ratio of 34.7. If the one-time losses are exclude

Singapore Press Holdings Limited’s First Quarter Earnings: What Investors Should Know
