CAPITALAND $11 BILLION ACQUISITION: MY VIEWS

CapitaLand stocks
Dear readers, Capitaland has anounced yesterday that it intends to acquire Ascendas-Singbridge assets for $11 Billion. The local stocks markets seem to welcome the news as Capitaland stock price rose today.

With the acquisition, the size of Capitaland will become Bigger and I believe the bigger size will always be viewed by some as better. But as a balanced perspective, while Capitaland has bought over Ascendas-Singbridge assets, Capitaland also buys over the liabilities of Ascendas-Singbridge. And the larger liabilities associated with a larger portfolio may not always be good especially when the markets turn south.

I am not a shareholder of Capitaland but if I were, I would prefer Capitaland to be lean or stay the current size so that it would better navigate any vagaries of the global economy.
