http://sreit.reitdata.com/2012/05/02/a-itrust-dbsv/ (Ya I know technically it’s not a Reit, but it looks like one.)
So am I. )))). BTW, the Indian rupee has strengthened after the government said on Monday that it would delay proposed laws targeting tax avoidance by one year.
But five things wrong with the Indian economy.

Indon mkt is down 8% this yr after doing 46% last yr, one of world’s best.
Reason: investors are worried that authorities are too complacent abt inflation. The Reuters article also tells us that the mkt collapsed in previous bouts of inflation, though the analysts say this time is different (“They would say that, wouldn’t they?)
So might want to curb yr bullishness on all things Indon* on SGX here.
The Indian stock market has fallen more than 7% from a record high set in November, as investors have grown increasingly concerned about inflation and corruption scandals that have paralyzed the country’s Parliament. The Nifty 50 stock index did close up 1.9 percent on Wednesday, but that came after a six-day losing streak.
I’m still a bull on these countries owning Lippo-Mapletree and Ascendas I (despite it trading above last reported RNAV).
*I missed buying First Reit. I tot it would trade at 0.71 (theoretical price taking into account massive rights issue) for a while. No hurry to buy. In New Yr it moved to juz above its last reported RNAV of 0.76. Sigh. Penny wise, pound foolish.

BT published a long piece that could serve as a primer on how to invest in Reits. Reit Primer.
Two complaints abt piece.
One is that it doesn’t talk abt buying Reits that trade at big discounts to latest reported RNAV. True there may be gd reasons why some Reits trade way below RNAV. But savvy investors can make $ buying Reits that they think shld not trade way below RNAV and holding them until they trade above or juz below RNAV, while getting good payouts while waiting. Useful Reit table for yields and RNAVs.
Those who bot Ascendas India Trust (trumpets pls) when it was trading way below its RNAV have made gd capital gains. I should have sold out but the yield is pretty decent. And India is now hot and RNAV could rise.
The other complaint abt the piece is that Reits can use the low interest environment to refinance their debts at lower rates and for longer tenures. Analysts from DBS and OCBC are saying this is happening.
BTW, high-yielding Reits courtesy of ST scan0004. Declaration of interest: I own units in three of them. (Update on ^ January 2010: Now own four of them.)
Update on 4 January 2010
Must read — a summary of Soro’s piece (many yrs ago) on the danger of buying a Reit trading above RNAV (and attraction).
Another gd Reit table.
