Profitable REIT Investment Strategies Made Simple

Profitable REIT Investment Strategies Made Simple

In the last Straits Times Index (STI) quarterly review in December 2018, 5 out of 5 of the stocks on the STI reserve list were identified as REITs. The STI reserve list comprised of the five highest ranking non-constituents of the STI by market capitalisation:
Suntec REIT
Mapletree Commercial Trust
Keppel REIT
Mapletree Logistics Trust
Mapletree Industrial Trust
With only 40 REITs listed in Singapore, this shows that REITs are gaining significance and traction amongst investors. REITs are popular tool for investors seeking stable dividends and building their passive income.

Lured by the high yields, many retail investors mistakenly thought that REIT is simple – relying on a combination of High Yield, Low Price-to-Book Ratio and Low Gearing to pick their REITs.

However, many found themselves faced with a slow and painful declines in REIT prices over the years. Some also felt betrayed by the REITs they supported – rights issues after rights issues on their portfolio were called – forcing them to fork out additional cash or face dilution. Any of these may rob an investor of their dividend income.

During this seminar, Tam Ging Wien will uncover the common mistakes REIT investors make; while unpacking the strategies that will help REIT investors stay profitable.

In this seminar, he will be examining the following topics:
Foundational understanding of REITs
How to perform financial evaluation on a REIT
Dispelling common myths surrounding REIT investment strategies such as:
  High yielding REITs make good investments
  REITs trading below their NAV are undervalued
  REITs that acquiring new assets will increase shareholder value
  Rising interest rates will impact REITs
The right way to select high quality REITs
How to value and buy undervalued REITs
Common REIT investment traps and how to avoid them
During the sharing session, various case studies and list Singapore REIT examples will be used.

There will also be a Q&A and mingling session so that members of the community may engage in open dialog and discussions in order to deepen their understanding of REITs.

Ging Wien will offer sufficient breadth and depth to benefit both novice and seasoned investors alike.
