In November 2013, I said that I reduced my investment in Sabana REIT and moved the funds into Croesus Retail Trust, believing that a reduction in my exposure to industrial properties in Singapore was sensible. At the time, Sabana REIT was trading at about $1.09 a unit.
Then, in January 2014, I wrote a piece saying that Sabana REIT’s quarterly results were within my expectations and that trading at $1.07 a unit, we could see its unit price fall to $1.03 once the REIT went XD if Mr. Market were to demand a 2% premium over the market leader, A-REIT.
I also said that although I was not buying at $1.07, neither was I selling. The reason was because Sabana REIT’s relatively low occupancy of 91.2% could improve over time. So, we could see DPU and distribution yield improving, everything else remaining equal.
How much of an improvement would we see? …
