Tug-of-Fools: CapitaLand

Capitaland_logoSingapore property companies are currently about as popular as the passenger who tries to sneak a durian on board an international flight.

The mere whiff of tapering has put the frighteners on investors who worry that any hikes in the cost of money could strangle the generous cash that flows from property companies to the pockets of investors.

Is the market right to be concerned? In this week’s Tug-of-Fools, Sudhan P will argue the case for one of Asia’s largest real estate companies, CapitaLand (SGX: C31). At the other end of the rope will be Chong Ser Jing.

CapitaLand is arguably one of Singapore’s most prolific developers. It has spawned a host of Real Estate Investment Trusts that include CapitaMalls Asia (SGX: JS8), Ascott Residence Trust (SGX: A68U) and CapitaCommercial Trust (SGX: C38U). But are the good times over for CapitaLand following the measures to cool an overheated property market in Singapore?
