Frasers Cpt Tr (FCT) - I think the Management is doing the right thing to bring down the Gearing to 37.1%!

  

I think the Manager/sponsor has done the right thing to pare down the debts. 



I think this is rather encouraging and should be able to weather out this higher interest rate environment!

Not a call to buy or sell!

Pls dyodd. 

Divestment of the Changi Mall at 338M , Citi Analyst upgrade to buy with a price target of 2.51, Awesome!

Quote :

Citi Research analyst Brandon Lee has upgraded his call on FCT to “buy” given its improved gearing to 37.1%, making the REIT the lowest-geared retail Singapore REIT (S-REIT) among the REITs within his coverage.

FCT’s move will also give it sufficient debt headroom to make potential acquisitions that are accretive to its distribution per unit (DPU), Lee adds.

The recovery of retail revenue after Covid-19 is also another plus for FCT in the analyst’s book.

With all that in mind, Lee has increased his target price to $2.51 from $2.30. His new target price has an implied P/B of 1.08x in-line with FCT’s five-year pre-Covid-19 mean of 1.09x.



Chart wise,  bullish mode!

A nice breakout of 2.26 smoothly plus good volume that may likely drive the price higher towards 2.30 than 2.35 and above!

NAV 2.32. Yearly Dividend is about 12.2 cents. Yield is about 5.44% at 2.24. I think gd price level to monitor. 

Please dyodd.
