10 Outperforming S-REITs in 1H2023

Stock Screening

Singapore Exchange (SGX) Market Updates section shared on the 10 outperforming Singapore Listed REITs (S-REITs) in the first half of 2023 (1H2023). I thought it will be interesting to share and I wonder what indicators they use to identify these 10 outperforming S-REITs.

According to the article, the iEdge S-REIT Index generated 2.1% in total returns in the first half of 2023. The iEdge S-REIT index outperformed the Straits Times Index’s 1.2 per cent and the FTSE EPRA Nareit Asia ex Japan Index’s -1.7 per cent.

If you do not know what iEdge S-REIT Index is, the iEdge S-REIT Index is a narrow, tradable, adjusted free-float market capitalisation weighted index that measures the performance of the most liquid real estate investment trusts in Singapore in SGD.

Here are the 10 outperforming S-REITs in 1H2023 that was shared. The current dividend yield seems outdated. Thus, I have replaced the current dividend yield with the percentage taken from Stocks Café on 21st July 2023.

My Thoughts on The 10 Outperforming S-REITs in 1H2023

Even though these are the top 10 outperformed S-REITs in 1H 2023, we must do our due diligence before buying them.

In the list shared above, I do have some of these REITs such as Frasers Logistics & Commercial Trust (SGX:BUOU), Paragon Reit (SGX:SK6U), Frasers Centrepoint Trust (SGX:J69U) and ParkwayLife Reit (SGX:C2PU) in my stock portfolio.

Do not solely depend on current dividend yield and buy into the REIT. The higher the dividend yield, the higher the risk involved.
