Annual report 2012 indicate 2012 traffic for Subang Parade & Mahkota Parade increase by 44% and 34% respectively. Therefore, healhty rental revision rates expected for both mall in 2013.
On the other hand, the reposition & reburnishment of 2 new kedah malls acquired in Oct 2012 (Landmark & Central Square), are expected to completed by end 2013. Healthy rental revision rate are expected after the exercise.
With (1) stronger outlook of rental revision rates, (2)current high gross yield at 7.1% (10.5/148) and (3)potential yield compression since retail peer trade at yield range 4.5% to 5.0%, these 3 fundamental factors point to the high possibility of strong run up of hektar share price in later part of 2013.

Come, good; Don't come, also good.

15 Million Tourists Expected to Visit Historic Melaka in this VISIT MALAYSIA YEAR 2014. Many will visit Mahkota Parade. Reit is a defensive counter.
Another defensive counter is SILK Toll Road. More Tourists also mean many more cars & coaches passing by toll roads.

Johnny MahAfter the missing plane incident, China tourists will choose other place, Thailand, Indonesia. I don't think Visit Malaysia Year 2014 will have a good result.
ks55The best buy of all retail reits compare to any other retail reits. All its shopping complexes are in commanding position in their own rights without serious competitors. Good yield and average total yearly return for 5 years (2009 - 2013) is 19.8%, total return for the same period is 60.1 %. High positive rental reversion esp after the completion of AEI in 4th Quarter this year.
