In a research note, OCBC notes that new measures, said to be the most comprehensive set of property cooling measures since Sep 2009 would also impact on industrial property as well.

OCBC said, developer stocks showing knee jerk reactions of 3%-7% price dips on these curbs but caution against buying on weakness for two reasons: 1) the latest set of cooling measures would likely have a deep and sustained impact on demand fundamentals, and 2) these curbs point to a strong political will to soften property prices and possibly more aggressive measures ahead.
