Quarter-End Insights

Real Estate: Slow but Steady Climb Continues

Though fairly valued overall, we see attractive investment opportunities scattered across various asset classes.

Mentioned:
  • Morningstar's real estate coverage is trading at a 4% premium to our fair value estimates. 
  • We view themes in commercial real estate as generally defensive in nature, with lingering concerns about increasing bond yields associated with future rate hikes. However, we continue to focus on underlying performance, which has remained healthy overall, as REITs have been focused on repositioning and strengthening their portfolios, deleveraging, and capital recycling. Construction of new property continues as firms look for higher returns, putting into question levels of new supply as economic uncertainty remains. 
  • At current pricing, we see attractive investment opportunities scattered across various asset classes within our REIT coverage.  Vornado (VNO) and CapitaLand Mall Trust (SGX: C38U) are each trading at noteworthy discounts to our respective fair value estimates.
