- Yield = 5.12%
- Price-to-book Ratio = 1.35
- Assets per unit = $2.23
- Debt per unit = $1.06 (including current liabilities and perpetual securities)
- Gearing = 47.5%
- Secured NAV = $1.17 (74% of trading price)
Their yield is now at 5.12% which is quite low, probably the lowest among the industrial REITs. Their price-to-book ratio also seems to be very high at 1.35 which means we are buying at a premium of 35%. Their gearing is also quite high considering perpetual securities and non-controlling interest at 47.5%. The only saving grace is that they do have secured NAV of $1.17 which is 74% of its current trading price.
I wonder what prompt my friend to buy into this counter at this price where there are other suitable ones. Even if you are looking for a very strong sponsor, there is still Ascendas REIT and Fraser Logistics and Industrial Trust or even Mapletree Industrial Trust which all have better statistics. The only thing that would keep this counter at this price is the Fed Rate cut which benefit all REIT counters. I am not optimistic and think that this price is not sustainable.
