Food for thought:

Just looked at the historical performance of capitaland limited, been volatile and trading range bound at mid $3s since 2005 and only at a current 3.3% dividend yield

While CMT share price, taking away the plunge in 2008, had been on a pretty decent upward trajectory till date, and now at mid 4% dividend yield.​​​

Theoretically, by buying CapitaLand, you can have investments in both CCT and CMT. However, based on my experience, it's usually better to buy the subsidiary if the subsidiary is doing a better job than the parent. Another case in point is ComfortDelGo vs VICOM and SBS Transit.
