Summary of May 2018 Transactions

There has been major changes to my stock portfolio this month. I have added Frasers Logistics & Industrial Trust to my stock portfolio. You can read more of my personal analysis here ( My Personal Analysis of Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust ). Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust now makes up 7% of my stock portfolio.

To partially fund my purchase of Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust, I have sold off Boustead at a loss of 11%. However, with the dividends I have collected over the years, I made a profit of 31.5%. Gone are the glory days of Boustead since it spinned off Boustead Projects into a separate listed stock on SGX. In recent years, it has also been impacted by the economy downturn in the marine oil and gas sector. Based on my purchase price of Boustead in all the way back in 2012, the current dividend yield is around 2.7%. Being a dividend investor, I choose to sell off Boustead and enter into a position with Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust instead as it offers me a higher yield. Read More

My Personal Analysis of Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust

Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust has been the hot topic recently. Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust is an industrial REIT focused on prime properties concentrated in major industrial markets in Australia.  IPO in 2016, the REIT has been generating an accretive yield for dividend investors. I considered the manager of the REIT to be aggressive as less than 2 years from its listing date (“20 June 2016”), the manager announced the acquisition of another 21 prime properties in Germany and the Netherlands on 20th April 2018. The acquisition was funded through a private placement which raised S$329 million. Read More

Starhill Global REIT Sells Nakameguro Place Property

Following my updates on Starhill Global REIT’s recent financial results ( Starhill Global REIT 3Q2017/18 Results Is Disappointing ) , the manager of the REIT has announced the divestment of one of its Japan properties. The divested property is located in the Nakameguro district and is a 4-storey building mainly for retail use. The property by asset value accounts for 8.6% of the Japan portfolio and 0.2% of Starhill Global REIT’s portfolio.

The property is valued at JPY 420 million (estimate S$5.1 million) but was sold for JPY 525 million. I consider it as a decent transaction. If you didn’t know, the property was acquired in 2007 together with 6 other properties in Tokyo for approximate S$182.5 million. The Nakameguro place property was one of the property within the Fund Creation Portfolio which was then owned by Fund Creation Co Pte Ltd. Read More
