I've shared my personal views on the DrWealth blog. It is not without small flaws, but it is ok to subscribe if you think it is valued appropriately in current market conditions. https://www.drwealth.com/the-good-the-bad-the-risky-of-lendlease-reits-ipo/

My sum of the Parts valuation for your consideration: https://risknreturns.com/2019/07/23/valuing-singapore-press-holdings-sph-ltd/ Intrinsic value is approximately $2.20-2.30 by my calculation. 20% Margin of Safety would be close to $1.80. Please do your own due diligence prior to taking action.

Here's a deep dive I did on the REIT by reading 17 years of annual reports. I run through the history of the REIT, financials, operational indicators and historical trends. https://risknreturns.com/2019/06/02/reit-spotlight-ascendas-reit-2019/ Enjoy!

Yes it can be bought through DBS VIckers. Remember to set the settlement currency before buying so that the broker will know whether to settle in USD or SGD.

The main issue I have with CPF is the CPFIS scheme. Some reforms have been implemented but more can be done. - Cost prohibitive to have a diversified portfolio of stocks (especially if your positions are small) due to quarterly $2.14 charge per counter. Having 10 stocks = $85.60 per annum. I understand these are bank fees and CPF may not be able to influence them, but one can try. - Limit amount you can use to buy Unit Trusts, ILPs, Annuities and Endowments. Having no limits on those products make no sense when most of these products underperform Index funds. It also encourages predatory financial advisors to recklessly sell these products to customers as “you can’t touch this money anyway”

The first stock I bought was Facebook. Over the years I have been flipping in and out of the stock. What this experience taught me was to own good stocks, don't trade them as if I had held the stock through thick and thin, my returns would be much more than my trading gains.

You can find my detailed analysis here: https://risknreturns.com/2019/03/15/wont-invest-in-starhub/ TLDR: Disrupted business, difficult turnaround, dividend barely sustainable. Best to avoid until signs of a turnaround emerges.

When they say no money down, they mean debt funded rather than you cough up the cash. When they say own multiple properties, they mean a group of investors pool money together to co-own multiple properties. The method they teach is not illegal, just complicated to manage and the success of your investment, in my opinion, is highly dependent on your co-investors.

Pros: - Higher yields at current market conditions - Ease of Research due to publicly available financials - Generally lower leverage than buying a single property - More diversification as you are buying a portfolio of properties over a single property - Lower capital requirements as you can get started on REITs for below $300 - More liquid as you can buy and sell as and when the market is open - No property management headaches like maintenance and repairs, looking for tenants, etc. - Income tax advantage as REIT distributions are not taxed on individuals, while rental income does. - These pros are summarised in my article here. Cons: - Hard to find bargains due to ease of research - Potential bad REIT managers. There are good REIT managers and there are bad REIT managers. It takes time to analyse management behaviour to see who falls within which category - Potential capital raises through rights issues may come at a time when you have no extra cash on hand
