Make money from Croesus Retail Trust and no worries?

Thursday, April 27, 2017

I said before that if an investment is still doing what we want it to do for us, there is no reason to sell unless we have found a another investment that can do a better job, bearing in mind to compare apples with apples.

Hi AK, noticed you mentioned you would prefer not to accept any privatisation of Croesus. Just curious about the reason?

Supposing they pay a 20 percent premium, you'd be getting back effectively 3 years of dividends. Together with the large capital return (which would be more than 120 percent since your average price is much lower than current price), you could easily put that money on some other REIT, which itself would generate income moving forward.

So it seems that it's definitely good to take any deal that comes by. Or am I missing something?

It is like killing the goose that lays the golden eggs. 😉

Haha true
Except with what you get back, you can buy another golden goose 😛
and have some more leftover because of the premium.

If you can find another golden goose. Not so easy. 😞

Well, sometimes, we don't have a choice and are forced to sell. Will just have to be philosophical about losing the goose then.
