Listed property sector takes a breather

South Africa’s listed property sector declined by 1% during the week ending 15 March 2013. This comes on the back of a 7% plus gain so far this year.

South Africa’s listed property sector gained 1.4% during the week ended 15 February 2013. Since the start of the year, both the listed property sector and the FTSE/JSE All Share Index have returned 3.7%, while the bond market has returned just 0.6%.

South Africa’s listed property sector gained 1.3% during the week ended 8 February, after both Resilient and New Europe Property Investments (NEPI) reported results last week. 

South Africa’s listed property sector has started 2013 by climbing 4% in just the first three weeks of trading. The sector climbed 0.60% during the week ending 25 January 2013, despite significant rand weakness and an increase in bond yields. 

South Africa’s listed property sector finished November on a high, gaining 1.8% in the final week. For the month of November, the sector gained 6.7%, comfortably outperforming both the equity (2.6%) and bond (0.9%) markets in South Africa.

South Africa’s listed property sector advanced a very healthy 2.4% last week as the Rand strengthened marginally and foreign selling subsided, says Ian Anderson, chief investment officer at Grindrod Asset Management.
