Retail malls open as Singapore begins its Phase 2 reopening
On 19th June, Singapore started to reopen its economy, with retail malls and shops finally begun to open their doors after approximately two months of closure. What greeted them were crowds returning, as queues were reported outside shops, with consumer confidence still seemingly strong amid the pent-up demand.
With Singapore entering into Phase 2 of economy reopening on 19 Jun 2020, slightly earlier than expected, and community Covid-19 cases seemingly under control, it has given rejuvenated the retail sector, as more activities are to resume and traffic flow to return. Consumer related sectors such as retail related REITS, and shopping mall related property counters could hence see some upside potential, as their earnings may not be as disastrous as previously feared.
Among which, some of the counters will include Capitalmall Trust and Capitaland, which is vested in a large number of shopping centers, as well as F&B related proxies such as SATS.
