DBS Group Research is downgrading its call on Dasin Retail Trust to “hold” from “buy” previously, with a lower target price of 74 cents from 86 cents.

In a March 3 report, according to lead analyst Woon Bing Yong, Dasin is currently trading richly at an FY2021 yield of about 6% which he believes may limit any upside in the near term. This compares to a peer average FY2021 yield of 7.4%.
