4 Singapore Industrial REITs

MLT reported 4Q FY23/24 net property income increase by 0.6% to S$155.3 million. DPU dropped by 2.5% to 2.211 cents. Portfolio occupancy improved slightly to 96.0% with average positive rental reversion of 2.9%.

Gearing ratio remained manageable at 38.9% with 78% of the debts on fixed rates. MLT is one of the worst performing REIT this year. The share price drop by 22.22% far worse than the FTSE REIT index fall of 10.7%.

Investors maybe scratching their heads that a REIT with such a strong sponsor can drop so much in share price. This is because the management has made silly mistakes by acquiring China properties at such high valuation.

Hence, this further proved what I have said many times in the past but investors and even bloggers never choose to listen which is investors must never invest in a REIT purely on sponsor name alone. MLT was a case in point.

In addition. the REIT has been very active in acquiring and disposing properties at the expense of shareholders. Now that the CEO has resigned, shareholders can look forward to better future for MLT.

With the drastic decline in share price, MLT is now trading at 6.7% dividend yield. You can view the REIT website here.
