2019 is definitely a good year for investors investing in REITS. Some REITS such as Mapletree Commercial Trust has already risen about 35% YTD and has been included as one of the components of STI Index. A look at REITS Data provided by The FifthPerson, you could see that there are a handful of big name REITS such as Ascendas Reit, CapitaMall Trust, Frasers Centrepoint Trust yielding less than 5% and some even yielding less than 4% like CapitaCommercial Trust, Mapletree Commercial Trust and Keppel DC Reit.
However, majority of the REITS listed in Singapore are still yielding more than 5%. I have picked a handful of REITS to analyse and will be posting the analysis in the next few weeks.
The REITS are:
