Hutchison Port Holdings no doubt is a large IPO, but take a close look at almost all business trust listed.

These includes

  1. Cityspring Trust

Wouldn't anyone be questioning the stock price of HPH Trust recent dipped as in less than 6 months from IPO, it has dipped more than 20%, R this again another those Wall street bubbling of stock performance and cashing out from greedy speculator ? PLs advise if this counter share be kept for long term or should sell ?

hi KT, my IPO nightmare does not mean that this stock is entirely bad. What we need to know that HPH is somewhat like K-Green trust which is a concession business that the government allow it to run for a period of time. and as such the assets needs to be valued based on

- the income and income growth - years to end of concession - the discount rate or opportunity cost of investing in another product.

trying to vary the discounted cash flow and we would be able to find out if at current price there is still value.

"肥 水 不 流 外 人 田。"

When I first hear about this "HPH" going to list in Singapore, I have my "suspicion on the spot" Because the Chinese always say: "Fei shui bu liu wai ren tian" The suspicion is even more to the truth for Hongkongers seem to be happy about it; no protest on the street. HA! HA! Which unlike timid Singaporeans, Hongkers are famous for. Must think Thrice - “要 三 思”. Maybe I am too "temperamental" in this case? Let us wait and see lol.

Ah! Yet another chance for the rich, wealthy and wise to unload assets at inflated, premium prices to a huge unsuspecting retail public. No doubt this will be hotly subscribed and punted, and may even become an index stock after a while because of its "huge" market cap. But will it make consistent and decent returns for its investors?

Only time will tell. :)

hi Musicwhiz, i guess not any of us dare to make predictions at this stage. me neither.

i truly think that if Li Ka Shing would offload some shitty assets to us, he wouldn't have any "de". That would be the start of his ultimate downfall.

There a few trust missing in your list:

MacCookPSF - the least say about this the better.

Global Investment (previously Babcock & Brown) - a business trust with 'cock' in his name should have been warnings to stay away.

IndiaBulls - see above.

Aitrust - IPO investors would be down 20%.

Nick at Valuebuddies has an excellent post on Business Trust. His conclusion: 1.5% Fixed Deposit out-performed all but 2 business trust !

Rickmers dividends are given in USD cents. The percentage gain is higher. Thanks.
