Fundamentally the whole Singapore REITs is getting near to fair value.  Overall yield for Singapore REIT is still attractive (average yield of 6.64%). However, technically, the REIT index is currently trading on downtrend after breaking down from the bear flag. 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.
