The Weekly Nibble: Asian Pay Television Trust Hammered Down
Here are some of the most popular articles that have appeared on The Motley Fool Singapore’s website for the week.
On 13 November 2018, Asian Pay Television Trust (SGX: S7OU) closed at S$0.315. Fast forward a few days later, the trust saw its units crash 46% to trade at S$0.171 apiece at the time of writing.
The trust’s plummet can be mostly attributed to its lacklustre 2018 third-quarter results and a sharp cut in distributions.
Chin Hui Leong and Royston Yang jointly study the trust’s latest earnings, and the amount of distributions unitholders can expect to receive going forward.
In this article, Lawrence Nga explores three real estate investment trusts (REITs) with a market capitalisation of more than S$1 billion and that offer distribution yields of 7% or more. All the REITs look attractive since they are trading below their book values too.
Royston provides investors with four essential tips to improve their investment performance. Those tips are: 1) avoid buying more stocks than you can handle; 2) own dividend-paying shares; 3) monitor your companies periodically; and 4) review the position weights of your stocks.
