Welcome

Welcome to my investment blog where I share with you my analysis of REITs in Singapore.

I hope that my investment philosophy will bring me a steady stream of income apart from my job. I am aiming for at least $3,000 per month which can sustain the current expenses of myself and my family.

Do enjoy reading my blog and post any comments that you have. I welcome them because it is a time to learn from each other.

When I am looking at investing in REIT, here are some of the guidelines that I am looking at. Feel free to comment on it. I am willing to listen to ideas.

-> at least 8% yield.
-> Price that is lower than its NAV.
-> Low gearing (if possible)
-> High secured NAV.

Current Dividend income is $4,200/month.

Analysis of AIMSAMP Industrial REIT


Current Price on 15th June 2012 = $1.145
  • Current Yield = 9.43%  
  • Price-to-book Ratio = 0.806
  • Assets per unit = $2.127 
  • Debt per unit = $0.707
  • Gearing = 33.2%   
It has been a while since I made an analysis. Have been busy with my daily job. Anyway, here is another analysis of my favourite.

With a current yield of 9.43%, it has the second highest yield in SGX REIT. Sabana REIT is slightly higher. But its price-to-book ratio is 0.806 which is much better than Sabana REIT. With a gearing at 33.2%, AIMSAMP REIT seems a safe investment.

I like this investment because its yield will increase by 15% in two years time which gives a yield of 10.71% and that is very high. With yield appreciation quite visible, it becomes more attractive. Assets and Debts will rise as well but I am not too bothered with that at the moment.

This is one of my anchor investment with 25,000 shares and I am holding on for its dividends which is high and attractive.

  1. hi, i find your analysis of the investments interesting. However, as a layman and amateur in investments, i am not sure where to invest my funds in those REITs shares that you talk about. I would like to find out more. You can email me at spawn890 @ gmaildotcom

  2. Hi Ah Teo,

    These REITs are listed in SGX which you can buy through a broker. I did have a post here on starting small for your reference although I have decided not to use it.
