 At 90 cents,  let's say yearly dividend min is 7.1 cents,  yield is about 7.9% . I think price has overly sold down to such a low price.

Better performance of core assets, VivoCity and Mapletree Business City (“MBC”), cushioned higher utility and finance costs in FY22/23.

CapLand Ascott Trust - The Great Sales is On! Pls dyodd!

 

The price has fallen off from 1.12 before announcement of the PP and PO for the acquisition of the new assets to a low of 0.96 , seems rather overly done!



At 0.97, yield is looking quite gd at about 5.5% . NAV 1.13.

The PO results is out shown only in total 60+% has taken up this PO at 1.025. 



I think market doesn't seem to like the outcome  judging from the price weaken further to close at 0.96.  

At 0.96, estimating yearly dividend of about 5.3 cents, yield is about 5.5% for this hospitality reit seem not to bad!

The price has fallen off from 1.12 to touch 1.01 today.

It has fallen off 9.8% versus 1.8% dpu accretive. 

The acquisition is merely 1.8% dpu accretive. 




The current price of 1.01 is cheaper than the PO price at 1.025.

So, I think it make no sense to take up the PO offering. 



After XD on Thursday,  may be 0.99-1.00 is coming back! 


Please dyodd.

Frasers Cpt Tr (FCT) - TA wise, bullish mode! I think likely to cross over 2.26 and soa higher!

 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.
