Singapore REITs Comparison Table for Dividend Investing as Passive Income – June 2013

Finally Singapore REIT started selling off and SREIT P/B drops from 1.22 to 1.12. Is it good time to get in now as what The Straits Times (June 1, 2013) suggested? Personally I have cleared all my REIT portfolio and wait for a good opportunity for Great Singapore Sales. However I don’t think this is the right time to get in yet base on 3 reasons:

  • Fundamentally the current REIT is NOT cheap and still over value base on NAV.
  • Technically most REIT has broken the uptrend support and starting a bearish trend.
  • Distribution yield will drop if there is increase in interest rate.

Singapore REIT Sell Off! Should you Take Profit Now?

Singapore REIT sold off on May 23, 2013 after Ben Bernanke’s speech on QE exit plan and shock contraction of China PMI. This caused Japan Nikkei plunged 7.3% in one day. Interestingly Singapore REITs also faced a wide sell off between 3-5% and this is very unusual because REITs are defensive in nature. It is time to really take a look at chart pattern and use technical analysis to exit the current portfolio. No if, No but, No need to hope and SAFETY first. Also bear in mind that the month of May is still not finished yet…. “Sell in May and Go Away?”

Note: Singapore REIT is over value at the moment.
