This came about because of my comment on Facebook that "There are sponsors who are mainly interested to use their REITs to sell their assets to. REITs are their ATMs."
Soilbuild owner also use the REIT to sell property right?
Must see how it is done. 😉
If sponsor sells property with rental support, usually, it is a sign that the property is overpriced.
Because I haven't heard many favourable talk about soilbuild owner
Oh, neither have I 😜
But if we are on the same side, it is OK.
If he hurts me, he hurts himself. 😉
Haha I thinking just buy in those with solid management
at good prices
So, I settle for good management at OK prices.
Or OK management at good prices. 😜
OK management at OK prices, I also take a bit.
Because what I read so far is similar to OUE, soilbuild owner treat the reit as dumping ground to unlock cash
Eh... I dun see it leh... They do sell but they dun dump. No financial engineering as compared to OUE or Keppel.
Selling does not equal dumping.
Sponsor is weak also
OK. If you say that, OUE and Keppel are strong sponsors. 😉
I like to see what they do and decide.
Saizen REIT didn't have strong sponsor.
(Some concerns with valuations of assets.)
Book value and market value har?
The best way of looking at whether valuations are realistic is to look at market prices.
When a property like XXXXXX was delisted (together with Soilbuild) many years ago, it was undervalued. Of course, when relisted, they want to list at market value.
haha I more conservative just worried owner play punk
if own also carry small position only
I think Soilbuild towkay has business savvy but not crooked.
me KIV until better, I also don't like the heavy exposure to O&G
I remember the towkay has a 25% stake in the REIT. That is not a small stake.
Although Soilbuild REIT's business parks are attractive assets to own, it is true that their exposure to the O&G sector is a cause for concern.
If the entire O&G sector goes kaput, I guess that is when we might see Soilbuild REIT being punished by Mr. Market and its unit price could decline another 20%, maybe. This is improbable but possible.
AA REIT, Soilbuild REIT and VIT.
