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.

Analysis of Sabana REIT - Recovering from Lows.

Current Price on 6th May 2018 = $0.425
  • Yield = 8.28%  
  • Price-to-book Ratio = 0.783
  • Assets per unit = $0.917
  • Debt per unit = $0.374 (including current liabilities)
  • Gearing = 40.8%
  • Secured NAV = $0.255 (60% of trading price)
Sabana REIT has recently delivered a set of results which I thought was good actually. Moreover, there is big boys interest i.e. e-Shang buying it which fuel speculation that it will also merge with the ESR REIT and Viva Industrial Trust. Let's take a look at the statistics.

Their yield is currently at 8.28% which is very high compared to other REITs. Viva Industrial Trust is yielding at around the same level. One advantage they have is that their price-to-book ratio is at 0.783 which means we are buying at close to 22% discount. This is attractive considering that the bigger REITs are trading at a premium.

In my previous analysis, I thought it is a time to buy. The problem is that I did not as I used up the funds to participate in the rights issue of ESR REIT. If I have bought it earlier, I would have gained about 8% in capital return. With the current price, I believe it can move higher when things are more settled in Sabana REIT and the occupancy goes up.

  1. HiHi, thanks for the nice write-up. Do you think the current new CEO is doing a good job? Will you also be allocating some funds into Sabana eventually?

    I used to own Sabana but sold it off later after seeing how hopeless their marketing team was in retaining tenants. Also they were having trouble getting new tenant. Growth via M&A record also zero from previous management.
