DBS Group Research expects Singapore industrial land investment trusts (Reits) to convey 5 percent growth distributions for every unit in fiscal 2021, supported by acquisitions with potential for additional, it said in a sector note on Friday.

The research group’s top picks are Mapletree Logistics Trust (MLT), Frasers Logistics and Commercial Trust (FLCT), and Ascendas Real Estate Investment Trust (Ascendas Reit) for their “superior growth profile”.

Clavon Site Plan, is in Clementi Avenue 1 and integrates work and living trends, and features flexible spaces, smart home amenities, and technology solutions for a safe living environment.

DBS analysts Dale Lai and Derek Tan expect industrial S-Reits to be the most dynamic segment moving into fiscal 2021. Until this point in time, industrial S-Reits have finished and reported more than S$5 billion worth of acquisitions.

Despite the normal rise in action, Mr. Lai and Mr. Tan noticed that the excess supply of industrial space in Singapore in 2021 may prompt natural rental growth potential in the sector becoming more tempered.

Expanded stoppage in construction works because of the Covid-19 pandemic is required to postpone the culmination of around 700,000 square meters (sq m) of new industrial supply in 2020. This new supply will be turned over to 2021, bringing the sum finished in the year to 2.2 million sq m, DBS said.

“With the time expected to absorb the new incoming supply, we accept that most landlords will probably remain accommodative and focus on occupant maintenance in the close to term, implying that natural rental growth potential will probably be more tempered,” they said.

The analysts added that most of the excess supply will be in the multi-user and single-user factories, while the supply of warehouse and business parks will remain constrained.

Among the various industrial asset classes, the research group prefers exposure within the business parks/high-specifications and logistics, as they will probably see interest, on the rear of Singapore’s advanced information innovation infrastructure and favorable business landscape.

The inflow of startups in the profound tech space and continued expansionary request from high-esteem manufacturing, such as precision engineering, biomedical, clinical innovation, and telecommunications, will continue to drive interest for these land sectors, showed the research note.

Rental growth by restricted quality

In these sectors, the restricted quality stock will mean rental growth, and take-ups are probably going to be more robust in the medium term, the analysts said.

“We accept that upside sought after in the logistics space in support of the vaccine distribution in ASEAN is not estimated into share prices as yet,” the analysts said.

On the off chance that this happens, DBS believes logistics-focused players like MLT and ARA Logos Logistics Trust will be the most utilized.

On Friday, MLT units closed 1.6 percent or S$0.03 higher at S$1.94; ARA Logos Logistics Trust closed level at S$0.60; Ascendas Reit rose 0.7 percent or S$0.02 to S$2.97; while FLCT closed at S$1.37, up 3 percent or S$0.04.
