The best contrarian style player I've seen so far is Hang Lung Properties from HK. THey only acquire land during crisis or when nobody is buying.

Yes. Hang Lung quite good. But the shares like no that good leh. Probably that why Hang Lung is buying Hang Lung prop shares now.

Hang Lung style can do in HK. Cannot do in SG because of QC extension levy.

The land they bought is so cheap that their profit margins are easily 60-70% for the apartments they hold.

However, they are focusing on developing prime commercial properties in China. The commercial properties in HK and the 2 Shanghai commercial properties are cash cows. They had about 34B HKD cash in RMB deposits and net debt is zero. The recent lending curbs by the banks will only serve to their advantage.

Hang Lung will just get sold down with the overall property sector and I will be very happy to buy the stock at bargain prices. And I'm sure the parent is also very happy to buy too. Btw, their last share placement to institutional investors was priced at more than HK$37.48 HKD for proceeds of HK$10.9B. We can now buy the stock at more than 40% discount to the placement price plus at 0.8x NAV.

I've exited from Hang lung with a 20% profit ( and collected the dividends). I've redeployed my proceeds in Springland which is a competitor to Hang Lung in the city of Wuxi. Hang Lung owns the biggest shopping mall in Wuxi while Springland owns the biggest departmental store. Both assets are within walking distance to each other.

Springland was ipo at $5.9HKD in 2010. Stock crossed $8 amid the retail stocks bubble. It had since corrected to $2.9 HKD level. Stock hit an all time low of $2.55 buy has since rebounded to $2.9 level on company share buy backs and bargain hunting by value investors.

Springland reduced its final dividend from 12 cts to 8.5 cts and this must have shaken out a few longterm investors. It may be a little early to buy.

RE: Hang Lung Properties (0101)
It's not because of the dividend. Actually, interim divd was 4c and final divd 10c in 2012, interim divd was 4c and final divd 12c in 2013, interim divd was 10c and final divd 8.5c in 2014. Divd payout had been maintained at about 50% since ipo in 2010. So dividend had been going up as earnings continue to rise.

The sell down was mainly due to institution selling on the retail sector and partly due to selling by Value Partners (the fund exited with a loss). Even GIC vested Intime is down to 3 year low at 10x PE.

Hang Lung to spend HK$40 million on mall upgrades to woo Mong Kok’s shoppers
The appeal of Hang Lung’s Gala Place and Hollywood Plaza malls has been in decline amid a shifting retail landscape, says Knight Frank

Hang Lung Properties will spend HK$40 million (US$5.1 million) renovating two of its shopping malls in Hong Kong’s bustling Mong Kok area in a bid to enhance rental income in a fast-changing retail landscape.

The appeal of Hang Lung’s Gala Place and Hollywood Plaza has been in decline in the face of stiff competition from nearby Langham Place, owned by Champion Reit, and New World Development’s recently opened The Forest mall, according to Helen Mak, head of retail services at Knight Frank.

“A facelift for the two malls is needed, otherwise they will lose shoppers to other malls,” Mak said. “They may even need to fix the structure of the malls.”

Bella Chhoa, director of leasing and management at Hang Lung Properties, said the improvements will be carried out over the next two years and will include refurbishment of the facades, lift lobbies and car park exit.
