Expressing views on Mindspace Business Park REIT listing, Sharad Mittal, CEO, Motilal Oswal Real Estate Fund said,"The listing of the Mindspace REIT at ~11% premium shows that a balanced product like REIT is preferred by both institutional and retail investors. Despite the recent weakened sentiment around commercial real estate, a diversified portfolio of grade A assets with strong rental collections as demonstrated by the Mindspace REIT finds flavor with the retail investor. This listing will augur well for future investments in asset backed financial products and commercial real estate in India."
Yash Gupta, Equity Research Associate, Angel Broking said, "We had recommended a SUBSCRIBE to Mindspace REIT. Post listing as the stock is trading 10% above the issue price, traders and short term investors can look to book profits at current levels and lock in the listing gains."
From a long-term perspective, he added, "It is one of the good assets class to be invested for similar or better post-tax yield as compared to fixed Income with a good opportunity for capital appreciation. However, given the increasing trend of work from home, there are some concerns about the company and the commercial real estate segment in the short to medium term as absorption may remain low in the near future."
