Another blue-chip REIT in my long-term investment portfolio (you can check out a list of all the companies I’ve invested here), Ascendas REIT (SGX:A17U), released its business updates for the third quarter of the financial year 2020 (ended 30 September) after market hours yesterday (26 October 2020.)

As the REIT have switched to half-yearly reporting for the first and third quarter, there are no updates on their financial results. Likewise, there are also no dividends declared for the two quarters as the REIT have switched to paying out unitholders on a semi-annual basis.

Mapletree Industrial Trust is a new addition made on Monday (26 October 2020) at S$3.10, that is if you’ve been keeping tabs on my personal long-term investment portfolio (you can check it out here), you would have noticed that  Based on a distribution payout of 12.24 cents/unit in FY2019/20, even though the yield is just 3.9%, but given its track record in the management increasing its distribution payouts to its unitholders over the years, along with sound business fundamentals, I am confident of the blue-chip industrial REIT’s growth in the years ahead – I have done a writeup about the REIT last month, which you can read up here to learn more about the REIT.

After trading hours yesterday (27 October 2020), the REIT released its financial results for the second quarter of the financial year 2020/21 (it has a financial year-end every 31 March.) As a unitholder, I have studied through its latest set of financial results, debt and portfolio occupancy profile, along with its distribution payout to unitholders (the REIT is one that pays out its unitholders on a quarterly basis), and in this post, I will be sharing with you the most important aspects about its latest updates to take note of, along with my personal thoughts to share.

What are the 6 interesting aspects that caught my attention about UG Healthcare?

Dear all, UG Healthcare (“UG”) recently caught my attention. It has tumbled approximately 20% from an intraday high of around $1.15 on 7 Aug 2020 to close at $0.915 on 26 Oct 2020. The Doji formation on 26 Oct 20 on good volume may be an early indication that selling may abate in the near term.

The recent weakness in UG’s share price is likely attributed to profit-taking in the share prices of its Malaysia listed peers and occasional news on the development of vaccines which may result in demand for gloves and consequently their average selling price (“ASP”) falling off the cliff.

I have outlined six interesting aspects of UG which caught my attention.

Mapletree Commercial Trust, out of the other REITs, released its latest results in the evening (its results are for the second quarter and first half of the financial year 2020/21 – it has a year-end every 31 March.) Hence, yesterday was certainly busy for me, where 3 REITs in my long-term investment portfolio (you can check out a list of all the companies I have invested in here) released their latest financial results for the quarter ended 30 September 2020 – CapitaLand Mall Trust (for the third quarter, which you can check out here), and Suntec REIT (also for the third quarter, which you can read here) before market hours.

In my post today, I will be sharing key aspects you need to know about the REIT’s latest update – particularly its financial performance, debt, and portfolio occupancy profile, along with its distribution per unit. On top of that, you will also find my personal thoughts about the blue-chip REIT’s latest set of results peppered throughout the post.

This is also the last time the REIT will be reporting its results under CapitaLand Mall Trust – it will be renamed as CapitaLand Integrated Commercial Trust with effect from 03 November 2020 (you can read the news report about this in full here.)

Apart from its financial results, debt and occupancy profile, and distribution payout to unitholders, I’m also interested to find out whether or not there are any improvements compared to the second quarter (ended 30 June 2020) where its results were badly affected due to the two-month circuit breaker period.

We have researched hard and have found 3 dividend stocks that pay dividends every quarter that you should know. If anything, the pandemic has taught us lots of things not only in terms of health but also in terms of finances. A conventional 6 months of expenses in emergency savings are not working out anymore.

Many unfortunate people are facing retrenchment or pay cut since March, and that has been more than 6 months ago.

Monitoring our cash flow is extremely important for retail investors like us. Receiving consistent and high-frequency dividends are one way to tide us through this tough time.

Liquidity and Network Flywheel Causes Multiplier Effect On Business and Shares Valuation (Guest Post)

One of the most important elements of a tech platform business model is the ability to create multiple expansion network effects, using the Network Flywheel concept.

A network effect is often described in economics and businesses as one of the key pillars of success as it depicts a contagion behavior of one additional usage of products or services that will have on the next users. This creates a long-lasting effect and an increasing value of a customer’s lifetime value, which is one of the key unit economic metrics for a business.

The Internet is clearly the easiest example of the network effect, where everything in our daily activities flows through the web channel.

Let’s take a look in more detail by using a private ride-hailing network, Grab as an example.

Grab started out as a ride-hailing platform where it aims to create a large pool network of supply and demand in each market so they can have what is called the network liquidity flywheel as depicted in the graph I created above.

A Look into NYSE-listed Restaurant Brands International Inc. (Guest Post)

A Look into NYSE-listed Restaurant Brands International Inc. (Guest Post)

Restaurant Brands International might seem unfamiliar, but did you know Burger King and Popeyes are under RBI?

Restaurant Brands: A Growth Story Missing A Solid Base (NYSE:QSR) | Seeking Alpha

This post was originally posted here. The writer, Lim Jun Yuan is a veteran community member and blogger on InvestingNote, with a username known as @ljunyuan and has 1409 followers.

You may not hear of the NYSE-listed Restaurant Brands International Inc. (NYSE:QSR), but I am perfectly sure you have heard of the fast-food brands ‘Burger King’ and ‘Popeyes.’ Together with ‘Tim Hortons’, these three brands come under the company.

Here is some quick information about each of the three brands under the company:

1. Burger King – Founded in 1954, it is currently the world’s second-largest fast-food hamburger restaurant; as at the end of FY2019 (ended 31 December 2019), the company owns or franchises a total of 18,838 Burger King outlets in more than 100 countries and US territories. You can browse through its website here – www.bk.com.

2. Popeyes – Founded in 1972, they are the world’s second-largest quick-service chicken concept, with a total of 3,316 outlets (either owned or franchised) as at the end of FY2019 – you can find out more here – www.popeyes.com.

3. Tim Hortons – This is probably the only brand under the company that we Singaporeans are not familiar with. Established in 1964, with a menu consisting of premium blend coffee, tea, espresso-based hot and cold specialty drinks, along with fresh baked goods, grilled Panini and classic sandwiches, wraps, soups, prepared food, and other food products, there are currently 4,932 outlets (either owned or franchised) in North America and Canada – you can find out more in its website here – www.timhortons.com.

In the latest financial year ended 31 December 2019, Tim Hortons contributed a lion’s share towards the company’s total revenue (at US$3,344m or 59.7%), followed by Burger King (at US$1,777m or 31.7%), and then Popeyes (at US$482m or 8.6%.)

Now that you have a better understanding of Restaurant Brands International Inc.’s businesses, in the remainder of this post, let us take a look at its historical financial performance, debt profile, as well as its dividend payouts over the last 5 years (the period we will be looking at is between FY2015 and FY2019), its current-year results so far (i.e. 1H FY2020 ended 30 June 2020) compared against the previous year (i.e. 1H FY2019 ended 30 June 2019), and finally, whether or not the company’s current traded price is considered ‘cheap’ or ‘expensive’ based on its current vs. its historical valuations.
