CapLand Ascott Trust - I think the weakness in price is presenting a good opportunity to take a second look on this counter!

She is Trading  at 0.97, yield is about 5.5%, NAV is 1.138. 

Looks like the selling has more or less completed and likely see the price stabilizing at current price range of 0.96 to 0.99. 

Please 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!

I have taken this opportunity to nibble a bit at 0.965 today.  It is currently,  trading at the major support level,  looks rather interesting!

Please dyodd.

Wah, she has retreated from 1.02 to touch the low of 0.99 Looks rather interesting!

I think immediate support is at 0.985.

Please dyodd.

The recent Private Placement (PP) at 1.043 and 

PO 1.025, looks like current price is trading at a discounted price!

Not a call to buy or sell!

Please dyodd. 

It seems that the market doesn't in favor of this Private placement and Preferential Offering for the acquisition of new assets plus AEI.

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!

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.

Lendlease Reit - Is it a value trap or opportunity?

 Is this a value trap or golden opportunity? 

I think I am gearing more towards extra cautious mode! 

The market is weak and all waiting for Fed meeting in September whether will there be another hike or postpone till November. 

NAV 0.787. Yearly dividend is about 4.7 cents.  Yield is about 8.4%.

The current high interest rates environment is likely increase their operation costs and thereby eating into their distribution income and lower the dpu payout.

Chart wise, looks like the same scenario may play out like Ireit chart patterns. 

short term wise, it may go down to revisit 50 cents.

Please dyodd.

Quote: citi analyst - LREIT’s gearing for the 4QFY2023 ended June 30 stood at 40.6%, which is its highest level since it listed on October 2019.
“We estimate a higher look-through (including $0.4 billion [in] perpetual securities (perps) and debt at Parkway Parade Partnership’s level) gearing of 50.5%, which ranks highest among S-REITs under our coverage (average 40.1%),” Lee writes. Is good to be extra cautious!

The manager of Lendlease Global Commercial REIT (“Lendlease Global REIT”), announced today that it has successfully completed its Initial Public Offering (“IPO”) of 387,474,987 units in Lendlease Global REIT (“Units”) at S$0.88 each (“Offering Price”), in connection with the proposed listing.

Those got it at IPO is still loosing money even with dividend collected.
