Have been doing analysis on Singapore REITs to build up my Dividend Stocks portfolio. Below is a snapshot of the REIT comparison table.
My criteria in selecting REIT:
Last Done Price < NAV –> indicates undervalue
Dividend Yield > 6% –> Beat Singapore Inflation
Gearing < 30% –> Reduce the risk of Right placement (dilution of share price) and net profit margin when interest rate increases (lower DPU, Distribution Per Unit).
Cautious: DO NOT evaluate REITs purely from the financial numbers only. There are two undervalue REITs in my list which may cause us LOSE more than the dividends in future.
The manager sold their units to raise $$ for the dividend! Use critical thinking: if the REIT is performing well and generating positive cash flow, why The Manager need to sell the units to raise cash to payout dividends?
The manager issued Right at a discount to acquire additional properties. BUT, NAV, Dividend Yield, DPU, TERP all drop after ex-Right date….
If you have time to do analysis, post your answers for these 2 REITs ….
Anyway, some REITs are quite attractive at the current valuation. Happy shopping but read those management reports properly.
