OCBC Investment Research is reiterating its “buy” call on Frasers Commercial Trust (FCOT) with an unchanged fair value estimate of $1.39 after the trust’s 2Q17 results met expectations, with DPU up 2.4% on-year at 2.51 cents.
To recap, FCOT’s net property income (NPI) growth for the quarter was largely driven by higher contribution from 357 Collins Street due to higher occupancy and rental rates achieved an appreciation of AUD relative to SGD, and a one-off payment received in relation to a termination of the lease in Central Park.
The management of FCOT notably achieved positive portfolio rental reversions which were mainly driven by Alexandra Technopark (ATP), while 55 Market Street also saw positive rental uplifts.
Looking ahead, we believe there would be some pressure on FCOT’s rental reversions for its Singapore portfolio, notes lead analyst Andy Wong in a Monday report.
This is due to a lack of concrete updates on the leases for the two Hewlett-Packard (HP) entities which are expiring in Sep/Nov this year, he explains, although the trust’s management continues to engage these tenants actively.
Nonetheless, Wong highlights an improved outlook for Perth for the Australia portfolio with an increase in inquiries seen by FCOT, while Melbourne’s CBD office market is expected to remain robust.As at 10:56 am, units of FCOT are trading 1 cent higher at $1.34.
