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 Dasin Retail Trust - Almost unchanged, Just collect dividends

Current Price on 7th Apr 2019 = $0.865
  • Yield = 8.46%  
  • Price-to-book Ratio = 0.554
  • Assets per unit = $3.005
  • Debt per unit = $1.443 (including current liabilities)
  • Gearing = 48.0%
Three months have passed since I look at Dasin Retail Trust and here we see it again.

The price has not changed much but I have collected a dividend of $4,600 which is very good for me. With the current yield of 8.46%, I am expecting to collect another $4,200 in August/September period which is fantastic for me. It's price-to-book ratio also suggest that we are buying at a big discount. Gearing is at a high of 48% so need to watch out.

With the current Hyflux problems, I have come to realize that the valuation can be misleading and unreal since Hyflux gives such a big writedown in their assets. I am wondering how valuation companies do their valuation and whether it is reliable. So far, I have relied on them to make my investment decisions but I am starting to question.

Nevertheless, I am still holding on to 120,000 shares which I am thankful for as I got it at a relatively cheap price. Will continue to hold on.
