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 $3,800/month.

Lone Star affiliate buys Saizen REIT's Japan portfolio for $370 mln | TODAYonline

Lone Star affiliate buys Saizen REIT's Japan portfolio for $370 mln | TODAYonline

Well, the deal is confirmed. Lone Star affiliate is buying Saizen REIT's Japan portfolio which is at $1.172 per unit. This is great for me as I took a position in hope that the deal will go through and it has.

I have 11,000 shares so the proceeds should be about $12,893. Minus off the capital I put in which is $10,230, I earn $2,663 less commissions. Wow! Not bad for such a short investment period.

One of my readers ask me what will happen to Saizen REIT. I think it will close and wind down instead of rebuilding a portfolio so we have one less REIT in the SGX market. But it raises the profile of REITs which has been trading at a discount to NAV. If Saizen REIT, one of the weaker REITs in the market if you compare their credit rating, can sell their assets at NAV value, how about the rest? Thus, I believe if you manage to buy below NAV, you are just enjoying the discount.
