Starhill Reit: Worth a look at?

In Property, Reits on 26/01/2011 at 5:25 am

Yield of 6.2%  is decent, even though one can find reits with higher yields, even within its sub-sector,.

But it trades at 64.5cents, a large discount to its lasyed reported RNAV of 89 cents. There is room to gear up further given its gearing is 31%. In other words it doesn’t need to calls a rights issue to fund run-of-the mill acquisitions.

Better still rents along Orchard Rd are likely to go up further by another 3-5% yearly (no new supply) likely, analysts say. Remember Starhill generates two-thirds of its revenue from Ngee Ann City and Wisma Atria.

Kim Eng is bullish on Starhill noting that about 20% of its retail leases in Singapore are expiring this year and that so far, the rates of those leases are about 30 per cent below rentals in the fourth quarter of last year. Kim Eng sees a positive rental revision in the next two years.

Might buy some for myself. Better than keeping money with CPF.
