Far East Hospitality Trust DPU Fall for 4Q 2015


Far East Hospitality Trust (“FEHT”) announces its 4Q2015 results on 24th February. Distribution Per Unit (“DPU”) for 4Q2015 fell 8.6% to 1.17. The annualised DPU fell 10.5% to 4.60 centsNet Property Income fell 4.9% as compared to 4Q2014.

Unless tourism picks up, I am expecting the hospitality sector to be soft and DPU to fall further for FEHT.
