The Hong Kong Book Fair, which takes place in July every year, is the major publishing event of Hong Kong. Last year, my first book on REITs was fortunate to have won a publishing award at the Book Fair’s Hong Kong Biennial Award.
Following our first article “4 Reasons To Invest In S-REITs Now”, we dive deeper into three REITs that DBS thinks could potentially reward investors with double digit returns.
Despite an uninspiring quarter, analysts are still positive about these 3 S-REITs.
Most S-REITs have reported their earnings result for 1Q18. In this roundup series, we kick off with a scorecard of the best-performing S-REITs. Among the universe of S-REITs, here are four touted to have bested expectations.
REIT is a popular category for Singaporean investors. With the Fed in the early cycle of its rate hike cycle, investors are getting worried about the prospects of the REIT they own. How should investors be investing in REITs in a rate hike environment?
As we have discussed in this column several months ago, Singapore’s real estate market seemed to have turned the corner in 2017. The enbloc transactions of residential projects suggest that developers are interested in accumulating their land bank again, and the early signs of office rental increases suggest that the general real estate market has reached an equilibrium point. As such, we have suggested that REITs and other forms of real estate may begin to see positive performance in 2018.
Investors who are looking to invest in Real Estate Investment Trusts to increase their passive income, especially so when one is looking forward to retirement and wants to ensure a steady inflow of income to sustain themselves. Investors should take a look at these three REITs in different sectors with improving prospects.
Following our first of the three-part coverage on DBS’ S-REIT roundup for Industrial REITs, we continue to look at the Retail and Hospitality REIT sectors that were covered in the DBS S-REIT investor conference.
During DBS’ recent investor conference for S-REITs, DBS notes that there is increasing interest to re-enter S-REITs at lower prices. While the market expects yields to be inching higher, the upside surprise stems from an expected rebound in rental growth rates, making it a strong case for S-REIT investments.
Spike in the 10-year bond and fears over inflation have led to a sell-off among S-REITs in recent weeks. Some investors have raised concerns that this resembles the painful memories of 2013 where S-REITs plunged 22 percent. However, in DBS’s opinion, the recent sell-off is different and largely overdone. Instead, DBS recommends investors to continue keeping faith in S-REITs and invest in them at a discount.
