The opening of Jewel this year failed to act as a catalyst for OUE Hospitality Trust. I am expecting it to attract more tourists which can possibly give the hospitality segment a boost but it didn’t.
OUE Hospitality Trust makes up 4% of my stock portfolio. OUE Hospitality Trust has announced their 2Q2019 financial results on 6th August 2019. Net Property Income (NPI) was lower by S$1.2 million mainly due to lower gross revenue from both the hospitality and retail segments. Distribution Per Unit was 1.06 cents, 9.4% lower y-o-y, mainly due to lower income and higher interest expense.
The current gearing ratio stood at 38.5% which I felt that it is not on the high side but neither is it safe haven. The good thing is that there is no refinancing required until December 2020.Read More
How do you find stocks to buy on the stock market? One of the way is to use a stock screener. There are several websites that offer such a tool to screen for stocks using conditions that you can set such as dividend yield, P/E ratio, P/B ratio and Market Capitalization etc. Some website that offers such a tool are Singapore Exchange, FSMOne and StocksCafe.
Every month, I will run the stock screener to check what is the highest dividend yielding stock right now. Last week, the stock market experienced a roller coaster ride whereby the stock prices were in a sea of red. Some panic but for me, it poses an opportunity for me to grab some good dividend yielding stocks.
I have limited the results to the top 10 dividend yielding stocks right now. Here are the results:
Current Yield %
Capita Retail China Trust
Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust
OUE Hospitality Trust
Far East Hospitality Trust
Frasers Commercial Trust
OUE Commercial REIT
Haw Par topped the chart in terms of dividend yield. I really ought to find some time to look into this stock. As of 19th August 2019, Haw Par is trading at S$13.99. Wow, this is really an expensive stock!
Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust also appear in the top 3. As Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust already make up 13% of my stock portfolio, I shall refrain from adding more to my stock portfolio.
From the list, I am interested in Frasers Commercial Trust whereby this REIT only makes up 1% of my stock portfolio. As of 19th August 2019, Frasers Commercial Trust is trading at S$1.61.
