The headline of SPH REIT's press release last Friday read "SPH Reit 2Q 2019 Distribution Income 2.5% Higher Year-on-Year". However, looking into the numbers, the cash distribution available was only up 1.0% and the DPU increase was even smaller at +0.4%. This is despite SPH Reit increasing the "cash payout ratio" from 96.8% last year … Continue reading SPH Reit DPU Steady as a Rock but Risk has also increased
The headlines from their latest Media Release last week screamed “SPH REIT delivered steady distribution. 1Q 2019 DPU held steady at 1.34 cents. Figtree Grove Shopping Centre – yield-accretive acquisition in New South Wales, Australia”. As an income investor, I am naturally happy. But is everything so rosy for SPH Reit? I somehow didn’t feel … Continue reading SPH Reit: Is Declining Occupancy starting to Bite?
When I mentioned that Capitaland Retail China's 7.7% yield was attractive in my previous post, one reader rightly pointed out that it is "dangerous to buy based on yield". I cannot agree more. I hope NONE of you will go away with this idea after reading my blog that we should only look at dividend yield … Continue reading Dangerous to buy based on yield
It is great to see STI rebounding today after a few days of gloomy mood. I am also happy to know of CRCT and Starhill Global quarter results yesterday.

We have to go back … Continue reading Capitaland Retail China 7.7% Yield is Attractive
Capitaland Retail China (CRC) at the current price is now my latest target. This conclusion is based on my evaluation of the current yield of selected Reits relative to the last 3-5 years historical yield performance. See chart below. In my "similar" post last month, I mentioned I was attracted to Starhill Global Reit (SGR) at 66.5 … Continue reading CapitaLand Retail China, my latest target!
First, I like to wish all my Chinese readers a very Happy New Year, 祝你 恭喜发财, 万事如意, 身体健康! A week has passed since the shocking week and guess what, the US stock markets have turned around and now marched steadily and confidently forward despite the 10 years Treasury yield rising to recent record levels which was the … Continue reading Alternate REITs Buy Trigger = Reversion to Mean Dividend Yield
I did some research on MapleTree Commercial Trust (MCT) and found it a solid company to consider investing in. Although the current share price provides good value, I will accumulate more when its share price is $1.47 and below to satisfy the “safety margin” that I set for myself. Below are my key … Continue reading Accumulating MapleTree Commercial Trust
“We maintained our buy call on Far East Hospitality Trust with a revised target price of $0.70 … We believe 1H17 marks the cyclical low in FEHT’s earnings and FEHT should report sequential improvements in DPU going forward as we approach 2018 … FEHT valuations are attractive, trading at c.0.75x P/BV and offering a high … Continue reading Far East Hospitality Trust – Sell Now First Buy Later Maybe
In my last blog post: "Surprise in Reits ETFs Review!", I mentioned that I would just buy Phillip Singapore Real Estate Income Fund (PUT) instead of buying individual REITs on local market when the share price of SG Reits (i.e also implied for PUT) decline to an attractive level.Following that, I have received questions of "what … Continue reading Phillip Singapore Real Estate Income Fund – What price to enter?
