Here's our mistakes. Don't do the same.
We asked 14 Singapore finance bloggers to share what they would do if they could go back in time and invest their first $20,000. They can no longer rewind time, but you can learn from their experience and hopefully start with a better footing.
Ascendas India Trust 3.8% 08/27/19 100.25 3.74%
AACI REIT 3.8% 05/21/19 100.00 3.80%
Cambridge Reit 4.1% 04/29/20 100.00 4.10%
This is the first time I am looking at this business trust (not REIT) with a market cap of SGD 487.8 Mil listed just in Nov 2013 and majority owned (64.38%) by Tong Jinquan, another Chinese real estate mogul billionaire. http://www.nextinsight.net/index.php/story-archive-mainmenu-60/921-2013-chinahk/7637-tong-jinquan-prc-property-baron-behind-viva-industrial
I found that Viva Trust has debt/assets of 38.1% and supposedly pays a dividend of 8.5%.
As for its ratings, Viva Industrial Real Estate Investment Trust is rated BB+ by S&P. I am not sure why it is called a “real estate investement trust” because it is a business trust structure.
And I am also unsure why the bond issued by Viva iTrust MTN Pte. Ltd, a subsidiary, is rated higher at BBB-.
Let’s take it at face value.
Their assets are all in Singapore. I am surprised at their returns and dividends which is amongst the highest in S-Reit and trusts space.
It looks like a good deal to me.
If we pull out all the Reit-type bond issues this year, we have the list below.
1. Suntec Reit Baa2 3.35% 02/2020 6 years
2. Capitamall Trust A2 3.08% 02/2021 7 years
3. Ascendas Reit A3 2.5% 05/2019 5 years
4. Central China Reit Ba3/BB- 6.5% 05/2017 3 years5. CMT A2 3.48% 08/2024 10 years
6. CCT Baa1 2.98% 02/2021 6.5 years
7. MAGIC Baa1 3.2% 09/2021 7 years
8. Starhill Global Reit BBB+ 3.5% 02/2021 7 years
9. AACI Reit unrated 3.8% 05/2019 5 years
10. Rickmers Trust unrated 8.45% 05/2017 3 years
11. Cambridge Reit unrated 4.1% 04/2020 6 years
12. Croesus Retail Trust unrated 4.6% 01/2017 3 years
I say they come close to Croesus in terms of size. Croesus just declared dividends of 11.1% !!!
At 4.5% for 4 years for a newcomer name, I think it is a fair price given that interest rates have spiked higher and 4 year interest rate is at 1.58% today. 1.58% was where the 5 year interest rates were earlier this year.
