Fundamentally the whole Singapore REITs is at fair value now.  Overall yield for Singapore REIT is still attractive (average yield of 6.76%). Yield spread (reference to 10 year Singapore government bond) is 4.23%. DPU yield for a number of small and mid cap REITs are quite attractive at the moment.  However, technically, the REIT index is currently trading on downtrend and more down side is expected in the near term. It is time to get our watch list ready if the REIT sectors continue to correct to an attractive entry level.
