SINGAPORE (Jan 10): OCBC Investment Research is upgrading its call on Ascott Residence Trust (Ascott REIT) to “buy” from “hold” upon raising its fair value estimate for the REIT to $1.18.

The move comes after adjusting for its divestment of Ascott Raffles Place Singapore at 2 Finlayson Green for $353.3 million – representing a 64.3% premium to the property’s valuation of $215 million as at end-2018.

In a Thursday report, OCBC analyst Deborah Ong says she continues to like Ascott REIT’s portfolio of assets due to its strong brand recognition as well as high geographical diversification.
