3 Things You Need To Know About the Property Industry This Week

Welcome to Sunday! Here are three things about the property industry that might interest you this week.

1. Singapore is home to a large group of property trusts and real estate investment trusts. This week, follow my colleague Chin Hui Leong as he dives deep into hotel owner CDL Hospitality Trusts (SGX: J85).

Over the past six years, the stapled trust has not only beaten the market – it has also been giving out steady distributions. Chin’s deep-dive is meant to have a look at whether CDL Hospitality Trusts can continue growing and whether its current level of distributions can be sustained (or even improved upon) in the future. It’s a two-part article, so click here and here to find out more.

2. Should investors chase high-yielding shares blindly? My colleague Chong Ser Jing thinks the answer is a resounding “No.” Join him as he runs through some of the companies in Singapore which carry high yields that may not be sustainable. How is this related to the property industry though? Well, some of the companies Ser Jing pointed out in his article include the real estate outfits Aspial Corporation (SGX: A30) and Oxley Holdings Ltd (SGX: 5UX).

3. The property sector in Singapore has been weak for a while now. As the government’s cooling measures continue to put pressure on real estate prices, many property developers are starting to show cracks in their operations. Ser Jing takes us through why developers like Fragrance Group Limited  (SGX: F31) and Roxy-Pacific Holdings Ltd (SGX: E8Z) might be heading for trouble.
