Commercial S-REITs Rate-Hike Sensitivity Data Comparison (4Q2016)

During bullish times, it is still important to keep a 'shopping list' for our portfolios. Even though valuations might be too high for us to deploy capital at the moment, we should continue to grow our investable funds (warchest) while waiting for opportunities during market dips. It is common knowledge that REITs is an asset class that is more sensitive to Fed rate hikes. With a widely-expected rate hike coming in June, we should get our 'shopping list' ready because those dips after rate hikes are usually short-lived.

Below is a short-list of blue-chip commercial S-REITs based on their latest quarterly results for your easy comparison. When the market dips come (and they will eventually), all of us can strike fast. Happy reading! :)

Healthcare S-REITs Rate-Hike Sensitivity Data Comparison (4Q2016)

Collecting rental income from hospitals and nursing homes is one of the more stable yield investment IMO. Healthcare REITs combine the best of two worlds - real estate & healthcare. With a rapidly aging population in Asia, hospitals and nursing homes will be in greater demand than ever. Parkway Life REIT is best positioned to take advantage of this demographic trend. It has the premium brand private hospitals Mount Elizabeth & Gleneagles in affluent Singapore in addition to a largely freehold portfolio of nursing homes in Japan, where adult diapers sales just overtook baby diapers in 2016.

ParkwayLife REIT:
1. Gearing: 36.3%
2. Average Debt Maturity: 3.6 years
3. Debt Maturity Profile: No long-term debt refinancing needs till FY2019
4. WALE: 8.44 years
5. Interest Coverage: 8.7 times
6. All-in debt costs: 1.4%
7. % of interest rate exposure hedged: 99%
8. NAV: $1.68


First REIT:
1. Gearing: 31.1%
2. Debt Maturity Profile: 2017 (34.2%), 2018 (35.8%), 2019 (19.8%)
3. WALE: Earliest rental renewals in 2021
4. % of debt on fixed rates: 92.3%
