Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust Acquires NSW Property and QLD Property

Following the recent divestment of two Australian properties (80 Hartley Street and Lot 102 Coghlan Road), the manager of Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust had completed the acquisition of two prime properties in Australia for A$62.6 Million. This is no surprise and as per their previous announcement that they will use the proceeds from the divestment to fund potential acquisition opportunities.

The manager has mentioned that the acquisition is expected to improve the distribution per unit. Stock analysts have estimated a debt headroom of A$190m before reaching the 40% gearing ratio. Thus, I do not foresee any further acquisition in the near term.

Given the above news which I deemed positive, I have slightly increased my holdings in Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust which I shall update at the end of this month.

Below are the details of the two new Australian properties that have been acquired. Read More

Tai Sin Electric Limited FY18 Financial Results

Recently, Tai Sin Electric Limited had announced their full year financial statement for the year ended 30 June 2018. A dividend of 1.50 cents was also declared.

This have caused their gross profit margins to be compressed.

Now, let us look at their FY18 full year results ended 30 June 2018. Read More

The Hour Glass Benefits From Revived Demand From Chinese Shoppers

The Hour Glass has been suffering from the downtrend in the luxury goods market in both Hong Kong and China due to the clamp down of corruption from the Chinese government since 2015. This can be seen from the share price where it fell from its highest peak of S$0.88 to around S$0.71. And yes, I was vested prior to the plunge in share price.

The Hour Glass currently makes up 3% of my entire stock portfolio. Re-capping my reasons to stay invested:

  • Simple luxury watch business
  • Good management
  • Consistent dividend
  • Consistent profitability and performance (Revenue, Profits and NAV)
  • Low debt servicing ratio
