RE: Mapletree Commercial Trust
Is there any significance of 'an advanced distribution
for the period from 1 January 2013 to the day immediately prior to the date on which the New Units are issued'? Is an advance distribution beneficial to shareholders?

The above post is from SPHREIT thread.

Yes, it looks great on a y-o-y comparison. But, on a q-o-q basis, only slightly better. The quarterly DPUs,

Q1 (Jun13) = 1.753ct
Q4 (Mar13) = 1.737ct
Q3 (Dec12) = 1.667ct
Q2 (Sep12) = 1.546ct
Q1 (Jun12) = 1.537ct

Yes, rental reversion was awesome for not just VivoCity but also PSA Building (altho' smaller in absolute terms). But, some of the increase in DPU is also coming from their new acquisition (Anson Mapletree) which also increased their gearing from Q4 (Mar13) and which now stands at 40.8%.

RE: Mapletree Commercial Trust
Looks like a strong REIT: interest rate is climbing up yet its share price is moving up too.

Vm: if my guess is correct, similar to the other mapletree reits, the loans are largely fixed for the next 3-5 yrs. Hence the reit is not impacted, and is further chased by those seeking safety from seemingly riskier counters.

On a longer term, it remains to be seen how much reits can withstand possible interest hikes.

Question  RE: Mapletree Commercial Trust
Mapletree Commercial Trust will be included in the STI from Sep 23, replacing Hutichon Port Holdings Trust.

It may be the reason for its recent run-up. Or maybe the govt recent announcement of the Greater Southern Waterfront has an impact too. I think a lot of people were anticipating this move. Of cos, its recent price surge means its yield has dropped to the low 4%, among the lowest in the SGX REIT universe.

RE: Mapletree Commercial Trust
MCT is awashed in numerous good news. At $2.3, its yield is only 4%. While it holds excellent assets, I am seriously contemplating to sell my holdings in this hot run-up.

- Inclusion to STI.
- Greater Southern Waterfront.
- Pulau Brani development. Positive for Vivo.
- Govt big push in Deep Tech. Positive for MBC and surrounding tech cluster.
- Being the one of the few Reits holding 100% SG top tier assets.
- Cutting of interest rate.
- Yield hungry investors.
