- Yield = 4.67%
- Price-to-book Ratio = 0.896
- Assets per unit = $1.417
- Debt per unit = $0.546 (including current liabilities, perpetual securities and non-controlling interest)
- Gearing = 38.5%
- Secured NAV = $0.871 (111% of trading price)
With current yield of 4.67%, it is much lower than most REITs in the market. However, one attractive factor is that their secured NAV is at 111% of their trading price. It means that if they are selling off their properties today, we will be getting $0.871 per share which is fantastic. Moreover, this secured NAV is not tied to any loans which makes it even safer.
I forgot why I sell off much earlier last year already. Probably I was looking at other counters when I did it. But I failed to see the value of secured NAV then which would be much higher. Well, it is too late.
Their yield is very low as of now, trading closer to a bond offering which shows how secure their income is, considering that there is a lack of supply and demand is increasing in the hospitality sector.
Nevertheless, I am now vested with OUE Commercial Trust which has a hospitality component so will be looking at that first before any decision is to be taken. Having said that, Far East Hospitality Trust has moved too far and I am not going to chase it.
