Keppel REIT (KREIT SP)
1Q19: Good Momentum Despite New Challenges
1Q19 results were in line, with DPU of 1.39 S cents/share at 24.1% of our full-year estimate. KREIT continues to achieve high overall occupancy (98.7%) and positive rental reversion (14.4%). Rising office rents on the back of firm leasing momentum (amid tight forward supply) should underpin earnings. A near-term challenge is UBS vacating its ORQ premises in Dec 20, which will create a void period (fit-out periods). Maintain BUY and target price of S$1.35.
