DBS Group Research analysts Geraldine Wong and Derek Tan have identified Frasers Centrepoint Trust (FCT) and Lendlease Global Commercial REIT (LREIT) as their top picks among the retail-focused Singapore REITs.

The report, dated May 19, comes as share prices of retail-focused S-REITs have recovered from the initial share price weakness of up to -5% when the government announced the tightening of measures to contain the spread of community Covid-19 cases.

“This [surprising] strength implies that investors are willing to ‘look beyond the operational hump’ and towards a recovery, which is likely to be immediate if Singapore can swiftly contain the community spread by the middle of June 2021,” write Wong and Tan.
