Yield is at 6.08% which is hardly exciting. Price-to-book ratio is at 1.125 which means we are buying at a premium and that is not attractive. Gearing is at 41.3% (including other liabilities) which is just ok. Occupancy is at 87.9% which probably reflects how weak the leasing market is considering that they are the market leader.
Analyzing this counter gave me more confidence in other counters like Sabana REIT, Viva Industrial REIT, Cambridge REIT, AIMSAMP Industrial Trust, Cache Logistics Trust etc. Because they are so large, they become the standard which others hope to achieve. This set of data shows me that other REITs should at least be trading at valuation price which I have always believed. With such statistics, I can see a lot more upside for the rest of the Industrial REITs. In fact, I won't be surprised if they launch a takeover for one of the smaller REITs listed on SGX.
I won't be entering Ascendas REIT. It is too expensive for me and I expect the price to drop actually. It is just a reference for analysis of other REITs.
