3 REITs That Conducted Secondary Share Placements Recently
Real estate investment trusts (REITs) are known to employ a variety of methods to fund mergers and acquisitions (M&A), and these include options involving debt and equity. The most straightforward method used by REITs would be to take on more debt, but this will increase its leverage ratio (i.e. total debt divided by total asset) and may offer it less room to take on debt in future. The maximum leverage that a REIT can take up is 45%, so many REITs tap on capital markets as an alternative source of funding. Secondary share placements are a common source of fundraising and involve the issuance of new shares to a new group of investors who take up a stake in the REIT. Such placements will increase the issued share capital base of the REIT and be dilutive to distribution per unit (DPU),

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. Yet, it’s MCT that has outpaced them, not only in 2019 but also over the longer term. Looking at MCT’s five-year returns below ver

3 Singapore REITs That Have the Firepower to Make Yield-Accretive Buys
The fastest way for real estate investment trusts (REITs) to reward unitholders with increasing distributions is through acquisitions. A prudent acquisition can help increase distribution per unit (DPU) much faster than organic growth in rents. With that in mind, I did a little digging to find REITs within Singapore that were best-positioned to make yield-accretive acquisitions in the future. In my research, I screened for REITs that had access to cheap debt (preferably below 3%) and had low gearing ratios (preferably below 33%). Here are three of the top REITs I found that fit that criteria. 1. Ascott Residence Trust (SGX: A68U) Sponsored by property giant, CapitaLand Limited (SGX: C31), Ascott Residence Trust is in a great position to continue making yield-accretive acquisitions. As of

Should You Buy Singapore Airlines Shares?
Singapore Airlines Ltd (SGX: C6L), or SIA, is the national carrier for the city-state of Singapore and is famous for its “Singapore Girl” branding. Other than the namesake carrier which the airline runs, it also has other subsidiaries such as SilkAir, Scoot, and Vistara which serve different groups of customers in the area of passenger transportation. Last week, I looked at whether CapitaLand Ltd (SGX: C31) should be in your portfolio. This time, I’ll take a look at three metrics to see if you should buy shares of SIA and whether it deserves a spot in your portfolio. Earnings per share Earnings per share (EPS) at SIA has compounded at an impressive 16.5% over the past five years. This is on the back of EPS growing from 31.4 Singapore cents in the financial year (FY) 2015

3 Reasons Why I Like Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust
Since I bought Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust (SGX: BUOU) last year at an average price of S$1.05, its units have climbed around 15%. Despite the run-up in price, I still believe it remains an attractive investment. With that in mind, here are three reasons why I intend to hold on to this industrial-focused real estate investment trust (REIT) for now. Favourable leases Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust, which is backed by property giant Frasers Property Ltd (SGX: TQ5), boasts a solid portfolio of properties with favourable leases.

Forget CapitaLand Commercial Trust: Dividend Investors Should Look at DBS Group
Real estate investment trusts (REITs) are one of the most popular investment vehicles among dividend investors, mainly due to their stable income profile, as well as high profit pay-out ratio (at least 90% of net profit). Moreover, investing in solid REITs like CapitaLand Commercial Trust (SGX: C61U), or CCT, is likely considered as a no-brainer among dividend investors. Yet, if investors are looking for a dividend stock that will give them the best long-term return (at a reasonable level of risk), then buying CCT is probably not the best idea for now. In fact, I think DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05) offers a much better deal now. Show me the money To start with, dividend investors are looking for investments that offer an attractive dividend yield. Generally, REITs offer better divide

Quick Thought Of The Week: Passion
Passion is such a great thing to experience. There is nothing more uplifting than watching actors perform passionately, even if you have no idea what they are saying…. …. Listening to a speaker talk passionately about a subject can be quite a motivating experience, too. But there is a fine line between being passionate and being unreasonable. Leaders of countries that can’t distinguish between the two can quickly lose popular support for what they passionately believe in. Donald Trump was passionate about making America great again. But his passion, which now borders on obsession, seems to have damaged his ability to tell the difference between right and wrong. He has dismissed numerous people from his team who offer a different point of view. That is beyond the pale.

11 Singapore-Listed Shares Likely to Be Affected by the Chinese Yuan Devaluation
The Chinese yuan slumped to an 11-year low on Monday, 26 September to around 7.1425 to the US dollar. This was touted to be China’s retaliation to the US imposing more tariffs on Chinese products. Because of that, the Chinese yuan has also weakened considerably against the Singapore dollar over the last year. As of the time of writing, one Singapore dollar can be exchanged for 5.16 Chinese yuan, as compared to 4.98 just a year ago. The sudden devaluation of the Chinese currency will definitely have a knock-on effect on numerous Singapore-listed China companies that report their earnings and pay dividends in Singapore dollars. With that said, here are some companies that will be negatively affected by China’s currency devaluation. China-focused REITs There are a number of REITs

2 Singapore REITs That Recently Reported Growth in Dividends
Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) have grown in popularity in Singapore. Besides providing relatively high yields, REITs also offer exposure to a wide range of assets. With that in mind and with earnings season having just ended, here are two REITs that have delighted shareholders with a bump up in DPU. Riding on the growth of the Chinese consumer Sasseur Real Estate Investment Trust (SGX: CRPU) saw its entrusted manager agreement (EMA) rental income increase by 2.7% on a comparable basis in the second quarter of the year. More importantly, the REIT which owns four outlet malls in China rewarded unitholders with a 5.9% increase in distribution per unit (DPU).  The REIT’s EMA rental income has a fixed portion that is stable and a portion that is tied directly to tenant sale

In the middle of last month, Yangzijiang said that Ren Yuanlin, Yangzijiang’s executive chairman and controlling shareholder, is assisting in a confidential investigation carried out by certain government authorities in the country.

These 4 Billion-Dollar REITs Recently Announced DPU-Accretive Acquisitions
While most investors invest in REITs to obtain a steady stream of dividend income, the fact is that REITs also grow over time, either through organic means (through asset enhancement initiatives or renovations) or through mergers and acquisitions. Acquisitions are a favoured method because it will instantly provide a boost to both asset size (and value) and usually also comes with an increase in distribution per unit (DPU). Investors need to be discerning though – not all acquisitions are beneficial for the REIT. Some assets may be sub-par, and even for quality assets, REITs may also end up over-paying for them, resulting in value destruction for existing unitholders. Investors should carefully size up the facts and figures relating to each acquisition to assess if it boosts the ove

Hongkong Land Holdings Limited’s Shares Are on Sale Now

Its property businesses are spread across China, Southeast Asia and in its home base of Hong Kong.

3 Blue Chips To Long Amidst The Current Correction
As the US and China returned to trade barbs over bilateral trade, global markets enter a new phase of correction. Not being spared, the local Straits Times Index (STI) also reversed quickly from above 3,350 by end-July to 3,170 level in a matter of one week.  Despite the headlines, it was a perfect storm in the making for a pull-back or stock market correction. Investors needed to readjust their hopes for a quick deal between the US and China after both agreed to restart trade talks during the G20 meeting last month.  That said, the STI has returned to a much more attractive level and hence opportunistic value investors should pick up some blue chips along the way.

Over the last five years, CapitaLand Mall Trust has seen its share price rise 31.5%, while Frasers Centrepoint Trust’s shares have clocked a gain of 37.2%. Both companies have given long-term investors plenty to smile about when we consider that each of them have paid out consistent dividends throughout the years. Coupled with the fact that the SPDR Straits Times Index ETF, a low-cost exchange-traded fund that tracks Singapore’s stock market barometer, the Straits Times Index, delivered a cumulative gain of just 15.4% over the same period.
