Three of Mapletree Investment Pte Ltd’s Singapore-listed REITs delivered earnings this week and the numbers did not disappoint investors looking for steadily rising distributions per unit (DPU). Mapletree Logistics Trust (SGX: M44U), Mapletree Industrial Trust (SGX: ME8U) and Mapletree Commercial Trust (SGX: N2IU) posted Q1 FY19/20 DPUs that were up, on a year-on-year basis, by 3.5%, 3.3%, and 3.6%, respectively.
Mapletree Investments is 100%-owned by Temasek Holdings, a commercial investment company that’s wholly-owned by the Singapore government. All three REITs year-to-date have left the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) in the dust and also outperformed the FTSE Straits Times Real Estate Investment Index (see below) with Mapletree Logistics setting the pace with an impressive unit price return of +27.8% so far in 2019. But can they keep it up?
