Manulife REIT: Buy at 14% Dividend Yield?

Manulife REIT: Buy at 14% Dividend Yield?

Manulife REIT (MUST) shares tanked 43% since the start of this year, which makes this “pure-play” US office Singapore REIT really attractive.

What’s more today, MUST’s market cap trades at just half of what its assets are truly worth – MUST shares trade at just 0.55x P/NAV.

Why are investors so bearish about this Singapore REIT? Because of COVID? Because of rising rates? I mean, MUST shares trade like investors don’t want to be in US offices anymore.

Is that really the case? Let’s find out.

My previous article on Manulife REIT can be found here.

Background — What is Manulife REIT?

At US$666 million market cap, Manulife REIT (MUST) was the first US office REIT to be listed in Singapore, during 2016.

MUST owns freehold, class-A office assets across prime areas of US cities, including Washington DC, Los Angeles, Atlanta and so on. Back then, MUST overall occupancy rate was 96.5% — which was above average US offices’ occupancy rate.

A simple Trading Strategy with a winning rate of 88.89%

A simple Trading Strategy with a winning rate of 88.89%

In today’s training, I’ll share a trading strategy with an 88.89% winning rate.

A simple Trading Strategy with a Winning rate of 88.89%

This post was originally posted here. The writer, Rayner Teo is a veteran community member and blogger on InvestingNote, with a username known as @Rayner and has close to 750 followers.

I’ll give you the following:

  • Exact trading rules
  • The performance matrix of this strategy
  • Examples
  • And much more

Are you excited?

Then let’s get started.

So first…

What is the strategy with a winning rate of 88.89%, and how does it work?

The core idea behind this trading strategy is that it’s a pullback stock trading strategy.

Why not a breakout, you may ask?

Because in the long run, the stock market is in a long-term uptrend as it tracks what the economy is doing.

The US Stock Market has been in a long-term uptrend since the 1900s because the US economy back in the 1900s compared to today has improved!

It’s the same thing for other stock markets in other parts of the world.

But here’s the thing…

Just because a market is in a long-term uptrend doesn’t mean it goes up in one straight line.

What do I mean?

In the short run, prices could go below their valuation because of panic selling and profit-taking.

These are often called “corrections.”

As pullback traders, we can take advantage of it.

Makes sense?

Let’s now go to the meat of this training guide…

How to Profit from Bullish and Bearish Markets with UBS’ Daily Leverage Certificates (DLCs)

How to Profit from Bullish and Bearish Markets with UBS’ Daily Leverage Certificates (DLCs)

This post was originally posted here. The writer, Jun Yuan Lim is a veteran community member and blogger on InvestingNote, with a username known as @ljunyuan and has close to 2000 followers.

I still remembered back when I started off trading in the stock markets in 2017, I only knew how to “long” the market – meaning buying stocks at a lower price, and then selling at a higher price, with profits being the difference between the buy and sell price.

However, if the markets trend lower, then I am unable to get into trade – even though I can “short sell” (meaning to sell the stock first, and then buy back at a lower price – provided if the share price trends lower), but the problem with doing so is that, if the share price do not go in the intended direction (i.e. lower) but instead gaps up suddenly, then I will risk suffering from huge losses (because I will have to buy back the shares at much higher prices.)

That was before daily leverage certificates (or DLCs for short) came along – today, retail traders can make use of it to go “long” as well as “short” – in fact, one of the best things I like about DLCs is that, I do not need to worry about suffering from massive losses if I want to “short” a particular counter, as losses are capped (where the maximum amount of money I will lose is the amount of money I put into buying the DLC.)

Speaking of DLCs, UBS, which is currently the #1 in warrants and CBBCs (Callable Bull Bear Contracts) issuer in Hong Kong, have a total of 74 DLCs on 29 Hong Kong counters and a US index (Nasdaq-100 index) for retail traders to trade in, and potentially generating profits in both bullish as well as bearish market conditions.

If you are new to DLCs, not to worry – in this post, you’ll learn about the basics you need to know about them, including more information on what these DLCs are, how to trade them, the 29 Hong Kong counters and 1 US counter you’re able to trade DLCs on, debunking on 2 of the most common misconceptions people have about trading DLCs, pros and cons about trading DLCs, and finally, what you can do if you want to get your feet wet in trading DLCs without using your own money.

Is it Time to ‘Run Road’?

Is it Time to ‘Run Road’?

‘Run Road’ (or in Chinese known as 跑路) is a layman term to describe the act of ‘dropping everything and just run away.’

This post was originally posted here. The writer, Jun Yuan Lim is a veteran community member and blogger on InvestingNote, with a username known as @ljunyuan and has close to 2000 followers.

This is the exact scenario happening in the stock market right now, where many dumped their stocks out of extreme fear (that a recession is coming and their stocks could potentially lose even more) and in so doing, ended up burning a BIG hole in their pockets.

Question: Is this a sensible thing to do, and more importantly, for those who are still holding on (to your stocks), should you also follow the crowd to dump everything and ‘run’?

In this post, you’ll find my analysis about the current situation, outlook ahead, and also what I would do (both as a long-term investor, as well as a short-term swing trader):

Upcoming Webinar: Q3 2021 Global Markets Outlook (is it time to be defensive for equities?)

Upcoming Webinar: Q3 2021 Global Markets Outlook (is it time to be defensive for equities?)

For the first half of 2021, our preferred cyclicals/value theme play that consists of Energy, Financials, Industrials and Materials related stocks have outperformed the broader market by a significant margin as expected; the rolling six-month average returns of the S&P Energy, Financials, Industrials, Materials sectors stands at +25% that has surpassed the S&P 500’s gain of +15.5% over a similar period.

In contrast, the S&P Information Technology underperformed, with a return of +13.70% and last year’s higher growth darlings; Tesla Inc and ARK Innovation ETF have started to record dismal performances in the last rolling three months with a decline of -13.2% and -21.8% respectively.

Heightened inflationary pressures have started to show up in most cost of production data matrices exacerbated by a global supply shortage of semiconductor chips. All in all, the risk of further inflationary pressures have fuelled the “tapering operations talks” of global central banks to reduce bond purchases in their respective quantitative easing programmes that have contributed significantly to the rally seen in global equities for the past decade.

Thus, what are the potential equities theme plays we should be watching in the upcoming Q3 and can technology/growth stocks stage a comeback? Join us in a live webinar where CMC Markets Market Analyst, Kelvin Wong will decipher the current trend of the global stock market with key technical analysis related charts.

Also, we will be covering the following key points as well:
• The potential impending big move on the US Dollar and its impact on Asian stock markets.
• Technical outlook on precious metals; Gold has staged the expected rebound of +12% from its predefined key support zone of 1,670/1,640. What’s next in play?

It’s 5 years already. What a fruitful journey. I did quite well so far fortunately.
Let’s do little recap…Started investing in Singapore stocks and some US stocks. Had a wonderful starting year with triple digits returns every year, whether it’s bull or bear (only 2018 so far) markets. End of 2018 start to focus on HK listed companies. I might’ve jinx them that their index fell from peak 33000 when I enter to 28000 in the mist of bull market. Luckily, I did fine with all the riots, trade war, and virus.

I’ve bought a total of 28 companies so far in this 5 year. 4 of them are unprofitable which range from -7% to -34%, they are TianLi Education, Empire Snack, Fuyao, and Pinduoduo. Funny thing is, all of them would be very profitable if I had held them till today. Some were mistakes, some were sold because of opportunity cost which turned out great.
