FTSE ST Real Estate Investment Trusts (FTSE ST REIT Index) decreases from 752.6 to 683.6 (-9.17%) compare to last post on Singapore REIT Fundamental Comparison Table on Aug 2, 2015. The index has broken down from the 200D SMA support and it is a confirmed down trend.  Immediate resistance at 710.

Don’t catch the falling knife in Singapore REITs although the Distribution Yield looks very attractive at the moment.

FTSE ST REIT Index Sept2-2015


  • Price/NAV decreases from 1.00 to 0.91.  (Singapore REIT is under value now)
  • Distribution Yield increases from 6.84% to 7.49% (take note that this is lagging number). Current yield is attractive but dangerous to make investing decision purely base on the yield.
  • Gearing Ratio increase slightly from 34.02% to 34.09%
  • Most overvalue is Ascendas iTrust (Price/NAV = 1.37) followed by Parkway Life (Price/NAV = 1.33).
  • Most undervalue is OUE Commercial Trust (Price/NAV = 0.57), followed by Fortune REIT (Price/NAV = 0.60).
  • Higher Distribution Yield is VIVA Industrial Trust (10.09%) followed by iREIT Global (9.55%). Note: Yes!! It is very attractive but we have to understand the Risks and whether the distribution is sustainable or not. High Distribution Yield does not mean it is safe REIT for investment. Don’t invest purely base on the Yield % because it is wrong thing to do without knowing the reasons.
  • Highest Gearing Ratio is Croesus Retail Trust (47.3%) followed by Keppel REIT (42.6%)
