Over the last 12 months CCT’s stock price is down 20%, valuations wise the book value is around 1.70 and its current yield is 6% which is pretty decent.

In the previous STI 30 review, SATS/YZJ/UOL were added into the index and they when on a strong uptrend following the announcement, so I expect CCT to rally strongly in the short term with 1.50-1.60 being a good possibility.

In the longer term I expect CCT to trade at at least book value of 1.70 or higher as both CMT and AREIT are trading above book value…
