Summary of Mapletree Logistics Trust 3Q FY21/22 Financial Results
It seems that this REIT does not gain the support from investors. Despite good financial results, the share price has been on the decline for the past 6 months.
I feel that the reason could be that investors are not supportive of its frenzy acquisitions whereby it has just too many properties in its portfolio.
Nevertheless, the share price and current dividend yield are reaching attractive levels.
