Powerman1971Losses due to foreign exchange. I thought by right they should be making profit as they have properties in Australia and Japan where their currencies are appreciating against RM!
AlphabetaForex gain or loss has three parts, translation gain or loss in consolidating foreign subsidiary, valuation gain or loss due to foreign currency loan and transaction gain or loss. The first two are unrealized gain or loss unless there is a disposal or repayment of loan, whereas transaction gain or loss is realized gain or loss.
In the case of YTLREIT, in term of consolidating the Aussie and Japanese subsi, there is a translation gain but this go direct to reserve in Balance Sheet. Whereas the valuation loss of the AUD 262 million loan is charged as unrealized loss in P/L.
Overall the is a net gain and resulted an increase in Net Asset Value compared to last year audited account ended 30/6/15.
Take note that the management plan to raise RM 800 mil to repay debt has again not successful and application to Bursa on 20/11/15 to seek extension of time of six months from 30/12/15 to 29/6/16 to complete the placement to increase fund size still pending approval.
ivan9511And one questions guys , Normally the selling price is higher than buying prices , that is because people want to sell at a higher price instead of lower price. this is reasonable , I know . But why during break session 12:30pm until 2:30PM , the selling and buying prices Turned around。 Selling prices cheaper than buying , why got people want to sell their share at a lower price ?
coldmanivan9511, yes this counter give well dividend among REIT company (correct me if I'm wrong). invest at your own risk.....
MirageHotelPDIvan9511, the yields of YTL REIT has been around 6.5-8% for past 6 years. Last net after tax given out was around 7.25 cents. If the price is 1.06, it translate into 6.83% yields. This year, the first quarter distribution stood the same, which means high change it will at least the same yields like last year.
MirageHotelPDivan9511, During the first 30 minutes before 9am. 2.30pm and 5 minutes before 4.50pm. Is called matching time. Buyer will call an offer price and sellers will put a price. The lowest and the highest will start matching and decide the optimum price. So, the lowest seller price has a priority to sell compare to other who call a higher price. The same to buyer who call highest price has the priority to buy first. Normally the transaction will match in within.
MirageHotelPDthis is beauty of investment in REIT, which you will enjoy reasonably stable income. When REIT have positive cash flow, they have to distribute at least 90% eventhough they have deficit in P&L. Last quarter, YTL REIT has gain in foreign valuation in Subsidiaries (hotel valuation increase mainly due to Australia Assets) from 1.3509 in June to 1.4089 in September. But at the same time also loss in foreign currency due to AD262 million loan which cause them owing higher on book. 50+ million losses in Foreign exchange translate to about RM0.039 per share. Which means YTL REIT still have net gain of RM0.018 during last quarter due to Currency fluctuation. However, these changes will not affect their cash flow since both are unrealise gain and loss. Threfore, their distribution is carry out as usual.
