Daiwa House Logistics Trust: FX and TA.

Tuesday, October 25, 2022

The unit price of Daiwa House Logistics Trust has declined 32c or almost 40% in the last 6 months.

This is pretty dramatic.

Although I was unimpressed by Daiwa House Logistics Trust at its IPO and had some concerns, I did not expect its unit price to crash so hard.

At the end of June this year, when a reader asked if I was interested in Daiwa House Logistics Trust as its unit price had declined, I raised a new concern which was the persistent weakness in the Japanese Yen.

Unlike the ECB which is raising interest rate, the Japanese central bank seems determined to keep interest rate low which is depressing the value of the Japanese Yen.

In reply to the reader who asked if the lower unit price made Daiwa House Logistics Trust a BUY back in July, I said that if the Yen was stronger, then, the REIT would be undervalued.

Unfortunately, it wasn't.

I said:

"Since the Yen declined so much, then, a similar decline in unit price doesn't make it (i.e. the REIT) undervalued."

More recently, just a few days ago, the Yen hit a historic low against the U.S. Dollar.

With this recent development, Daiwa House Logistics Trust's unit price has sunk even lower.

I said in my last blog that China was getting very hard to read.

Japan isn't much easier either.

Why is the Japanese central bank so stubborn?

All investments are good investment at the right price.

Unfortunately, at the moment, I do not know if it is the right price but as long as the Japanese central bank is bent on their current course, Mr. Market doesn't know either.

I do not see any positive divergence in the chart as MACD and RSI decline in tandem with the unit price.

I don't have an interest in Daiwa House Logistics Trust.

Just a quick blog sharing my response to a query from someone I know.

Daiwa House Logistics Trust was priced too dearly at IPO and we now have a persistently weakening Yen thrown into the mix.

On hindsight, it might have been a blessing in disguise that Saizen REIT, Croesus Retail Trust and Accordia Golf Trust were forcibly removed from my portfolio.
