S-REIT sector not attractive?

Thursday, January 13, 2011

I read that JPMorgan says "valuations are no longer compelling as S-REITs are trading at a forward dividend yield of 6.0%, P/B of 1.1X and 7.5% premium to house NPV estimates."

JPMorgan singled out 2 REITs for comment:

Cuts CapitaCommercial Trust to Underweight vs Neutral on lack of growth, deteriorating portfolio quality and rich valuation. 
Cuts CapitaMall Trust to Neutral vs Overweight "as we believe that constant cash calls from the sector would put pressure on the stock."

I am vested in neither one. As with stocks, there will be better counters to be vested in and the ones to avoid. Broader strategy towards S-REITs stays the same for me. Stay vested in S-REITs with higher yields, trading at a discount to NAV and with relatively low gearing.
