The industry is getting worse. If the economy opens, are you dare to stay in the hotel? Fewer people travel for meeting as people used to have meetings through google meet and zoom. After covid, the hotel management team also need to spend a portion of the reserve to make up the rooms and also others. It definitely increases the costs.
All decision depends on your common sense and business nature itself, especially during this period. Are you going to have interstate travel as the delta variant hits our country? Definitely no for me. Even though diversifies into other countries, what is the real occupancy rate? Some countries are worse than us.
To know how long ytlreit company cant sustains paying off dividends without business? Well they did show profit in their recent report right ? They got YTL backing them ... Whats there to be scared unless you believe YTL is another Serba??? Do you also know now alot of hotels are closing down!!! YTLreit will be one of those standing strong later on and get them customers back once Covid normalises. Time will tell my friend ~
Pretty sure you never invested during Influenze/Bird flu times
YTLREIT rent out the hotel to hotel management, so the income is respectively more resilient compare to others hospitality peer. Meanwhile, YTLREIT only provide tenant to "deferment" rather than "discount" of their rental. To my eyes, the profit is not reduced by deferred therefore if you playing the long game
From the analyst briefing sounds like further acquisitions is around the corner ... potential share dilution due to private placement coming up which is going to impact the short term yield ... maybe the reason why a large fund has been queuing in the afternoon sessions to dispose over 5+mil stock ... beware of buying high guys
REIT is boring and it's for passive investors like me who long for dividend income. You can diversify your REIT portfolio into different REIT segments. (or countries) YTLREIT is my favourite REIT in Malaysia due to owner's integrity, travel segment (i believe in the long run travel segment will flourish. As per Jack Ma. Not so sure about shopping malls) and relative high dividend yield in 2023 onwards. YTLREIT holders are gonna benefit from the extra income for delayed rental for the period of 2020 - 2023. We are gonna get a gross yield of 4% this year? How much are you getting for FD? i don't know since i don't have money in FD. Potential share dilution indeed is possible. However, as per the management advise, it's gonna be income generating assets. Yield will only be affected when incoming acquisitions are getting less favourable yield than current assets. From YTLREIT track records, i doubt this will happen. Hence, worst case scenario, same yield. As for the large fund queuing 5+mil stock, let's not read too much into it. Buy q and sell q could be a guideline but not definitive. Only top 26 shareholders can q so much and they are either YTL affiliates or unit trust. I would say you won't q 5mil on board for such illiquid counter to scare off buyers. I managed to buy average less than 200k shares per day by queuing huge sell q. It was to scare sellers
Below 80c was a steal now the price might still pull back as they are goin to be raising capital soon ... need to hold this stock for another 2-3 years to see the full return to pre covid levels ... International travel will not normalize until 2024
