Dividends4Life: Look to Asia for Yield

Look to Asia for Yield

Posted by D4L | Monday, September 09, 2013 | 0 comments »

Every portfolio needs an allocation to real estate. It is an income-producing asset class with a strong built-in inflation hedge and favorable tax treatment. And at a time when paper profits can be fleeting, real property can offer a stable store of value. What more can you ask for? But investors who focus exclusively on U.S. REITs are missing out on a world of potential opportunities.

Outside of the U.S. and Britain, the largest and most liquid REITs are in Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia: If you are a believer in Abenomics — or believe that Japanese inflation is right around the corner — then the Nippon Building Fund (TYO:8951) is an attractive option. The Link REIT (HKG:0823, OTC:LKREF) is the first Hong Kong-listed REIT and one of the largest in the world by market cap. CapitaCommercial Trust (SGX:C61U, OTC:CMIAF), Singapore’s first — and largest — publicly traded office REIT sports a dividend yield almost 6% and trades at a 20% discount to book value. Stockland (ASX:SGP, OTC:STKAF), Australia’s largest and most diversified REIT.
