The Week Ahead: India Election Result and Japan GDP
With the quarterly earnings season over for another three months, traders will have to look elsewhere in a holiday-shortened week to get their excitement. In the first three months of 2019, around half the companies that make up the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) reported higher quarterly earnings. Some of the best performers included the three Singapore banks, namely, DBS Group (SGX: D05), OCBC (SGX: O39) and UOB (SGX: U11). Other notable performers included CapitaLand Commercial Trust (SGX: C61U), Thai Beverage (SGX: Y92) and Genting Singapore (SGX: G13).

IREIT Global Evolving with CDL’s Involvement – My Take on this 7.4% Yielder
At the end of April, City REIT Management, a subsidiary of City Development Ltd (CDL) purchase 50% of IREIT’s manager. City Strategic, also a subsidiary of CDL, purchase a substantial stake in IREIT itself. In November 2016, Tikehau Capital purchased a 80% stake in IReit’s manager. The rest of the stake is held by Chinese Tycoon Tong Jinquan and Soilbuild founder Lim Chap Huat. Tong Jinquan owns 297 mil units (47%), Chap Huat owns 33 mil units (5.2%), Tikehau Capital owns 52.6 mil (8.3%). In this deal, Tikehau Investment Asia Pacific bought back Tong’s stake in the manager. They then sold half the stake in the manager to City Reit Management, which is CDL’s arm in doing reit management. Now, Tikehau and City Reit owns roughly 50% each in the manager. Then, Tika

3 Lessons Learnt From Berkshire Hathaway’s 2019 Annual Meeting
The Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholder meeting has become a pilgrimage for die-hard investors and fans of Warren Buffett. And each year, Buffett and his right-hand man, Charlie Munger, never fail to deliver, imparting words of wisdom and insightful anecdotes to inspire the everyday investor. This year, the legendary duo shared their unscripted thoughts on a variety of topics, including investing, markets, the world economy, and lots more. Here are three things I learnt from the meeting. Lesson No. 1: Be careful when investing in hyped-up IPOs with no profits While Berkshire has finally invested in e-commerce giant Amazon, Buffett is still careful about investing in high-growth companies with no profits.

2 Exciting REITs That Increased Their DPUs Recently
Since debuting in the Singapore market in 2002, Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) have grown to become one of the more popular investment vehicles. Besides consistent and relatively high yields, REITs are also highly liquid and provide exposure to a wide variety of real estate. On top of the consistent distribution per unit (DPU), REITs that are able to grow their DPU over time can help investors grow their income and are also more likely to appreciate in value. With that, here are two promising REITs that have increased their DPU in the first three months of 2019.

11 things I learned from the 2019 CapitaLand Mall Trust AGM
CapitaLand Mall Trust (CMT) is the largest retail REIT in Singapore, and the first REIT to be listed on the SGX back in 2002. It currently owns 15 malls across Singapore, which is worth a total of S$10.1 billion as of 31 December 2018. CMT is known for its remarkable financial standing and income stability. Rated ‘A2’ by Moody’s, CMT is the highest-rated REIT in Singapore. Despite this, there are a number of concerns over the REIT’s future growth, especially because its operations are limited to the Singapore market. I attended CMT’s AGM to find out about the company’s future growth avenues and also the management team’s outlook for the local retail sector.

Institutional Investors Bought CapitaLand Mall Trust’s Units Recently. Is the REIT Cheap Now?
CapitaLand Mall Trust (SGX: C38U) owns 15 shopping malls which are located in the suburban areas and downtown core of Singapore. Example of properties includes Tampines Mall, Junction 8, IMM Building, Plaza Singapura, and Bugis Junction. I pointed out in my previous article here that institutional investors bought CapitaLand Mall Trust’s units lately. This raises a question: Is CapitaLand Mall Trust cheap now? This question is important because if the REIT’s units are cheap, it might be a good buying opportunity for investors to consider the REIT. Unfortunately, there is no easy answer. However, we can still get some insights by comparing CapitaLand Mall Trust’s current valuations with the market’s valuation. The two valuation metrics that I will focus on are the price-to-book (PB

6 things I learned from the 2019 CapitaLand Retail China Trust AGM

Are Singapore-Focused Retail REITs Cheap Now?
Real estate investment trusts (REITs) own income-producing real estate assets such as shopping centres, offices, and, business parks. They are a popular investment vehicle for income investors since they give out regular distributions, usually every quarter. Before buying a REIT, though, we have to ensure we are getting enough value for the money we pay. To value a REIT, we can look at its price-to-book (PB) ratio and its distribution yield. The PB ratio is calculated by dividing the unit price of the REIT by its book value per unit (also known as net asset value per unit). In theory, a PB ratio that is below 1 means that the REIT is selling at less than what it is worth, and that makes the REIT undervalued. The distribution yield is similar to the dividend yield of a company. With that, l

CapitaLand share price and the golden job
Like many of its peers, CapitaLand share price is volatile because of the cyclical nature of the real estate business. Arising from this, the 5-year beta for this counter is 1.11. In spite of this, I like this counter very much because of its unique business strategies and diversified asset portfolio. Under the founding CEO, Liew Mun Leong, CapitaLand had embarked on a “asset recycling” approach, resulting in the real estate giant deriving majority of its revenue from recurring sources like commercial, retail and serviced residence. Indeed, CapitaLand investors may think that volatility is undesirable but I view it otherwise. You can make money out of the volatility  of CapitaLand share price, provided if you used the right strategies. Looking at the past four year data, there is a cl

Institutional Investors Have Been Buying These 2 Billion-Dollar Singapore REITs
There are many ways to find investment ideas. Some useful ways 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. In this article, I will look at two Singapore REITs that have seen the highest net purchase in dollar value by institutional investors for
