Also, electronics sector expanded for the first time in 14 months (50.2 from 49.7 in July). Manufacturing PMI in Singapore averaged 50.13 from 2012 until 2015, reaching an all time high of 51.90 in October of 2014 and a record low of 48.30 in October of 2012.

Singapore REITs in general is slightly over value now. Distribution yield for some Singapore REITs with bigger market capitalization is not very attractive. However, there are still opportunities in Singapore REITs with smaller market capitalization. The high distribution yield of these REITs are caused by huge drop in share price due to weak fundamental instead of strong DPU growth.  Technically Singapore REITs sector is in bullish territory and on uptrend but facing immediate declining trend line resistance. US Fed is now starting to talk about the interest rate hike which may put pressure on Singapore REITs moving forward.  Nevertheless, not all the REIT are affected by the rate hike due to the different debt profile. This may present an opportunity to pick up some fundamentally strong Singapore REITs if there is a knee jerk sell off in the Singapore REITs sector. Come and learn how to spot these gems and identify how to time an good entry in the coming Singapore REIT Investing course.
