5 Reasons You Need To Diversify Your Bond Investments
Diversification is one of the simplest things investors can do to reduce our risk without affecting our potential returns. The concept is fairly straightforward, instead of being exposed to one company, we can choose to gain exposure to multiple companies. If we only invested in one company, and that company falls into financial difficulties, our entire portfolio will be at risk. If we invest in 20 companies, and that same company falls into financial difficulties, only 5% of our portfolio will be at risk. That’s the simple premise anyway. We tend to see this more clearly when investing in company stocks, but less so when investing into bonds. Here are five reasons why it’s equally important to diversify our bond portfolio.

The Week Ahead: Keppel Corp, SATS, CCT and CMT
Four more Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) companies are pencilled in for quarterly results next week. Keppel Corporation (SGX: BN4) is starting to look more like the conglomerate that it is, rather than just a builder of oil rigs. In April, it posted a 33% jump in first-quarter earnings. This was thanks to a stronger performance from its property division. Keppel Corp will report on Thursday. It wasn’t the best of quarters for SATS (SGX: S58) when it reported earnings for the final three months of its financial year in May. Fourth-quarter earnings were down 1.8% following a slowdown in food solutions. Thankfully, that was offset by better results at gateway services. SATS will announce first-quarter results on Thursday.

What Investors Should Know About a Typical REIT Structure Using Frasers Centrepoint Trust as an Example
Real estate investment trusts (REITs) offer an alternative to owning properties. Under a REIT structure, investors’ (called unitholders) money is pooled together to invest in a portfolio of income-generating real estate such as offices, hotels, hospitals, and shopping malls. Just like stocks, they can be bought and sold on a stock exchange. In return for their capital, unitholders receive regular distributions from the REITs. The first Singapore REIT, CapitaLand Mall Trust (SGX: C38U), was listed in July 2002. It is also the largest retail REIT by market capitalisation of S$7.4 billion, as at 31 March 2018. It retail peer would be Frasers Centrepoint Trust (SGX: J69U), which is also a retail REIT that owns shopping malls such as Causeway Point and Changi City Point. Since REITs hav

8 Different Types of REITs and Stapled Trusts Listed in Singapore
There are around 40 real estate investment trusts (REITs) and stapled trusts in Singapore currently. As highlighted here, the REITs and six stapled trusts had an average distribution yield of 6.7%, as of 6 July 2018. The figure is an average, so some REITs will have an above-average yield while others will be below-average. A REIT’s distribution yield can be affected by a number of factors; one such factor is the sub-segment in which the REIT operates in. With that in mind, let’s look at the various sub-segments a REIT or stapled trust operate in, as categorised by the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS).

5 Things To Know About The Singapore REIT Market Now
Real estate investment trusts (REITs) and stapled trusts are investment vehicles that invest in a portfolio of income-producing real estates. Besides its requirement to distribute at least 90% of distributable income, REITs also enjoy tax benefits that other property stocks do not. As such, unitholders enjoy stable and consistent distributions each year. Many of the REITs also offer distribution reinvestment schemes, allowing unitholders to easily reinvest their distributions. This has made REITs and stapled trusts one of the most popular investment vehicles in Singapore. The popularity of REITs and stapled trusts in Singapore has led more of them to choose to list here. There are now 34 REITs and six stapled trusts in Singapore, giving investors here a multitude of options. Here are five

Institutional Investors Have Been Buying These 3 Stocks Lately
There are many ways to find investment ideas. Some useful ways are to screen for stocks or to look at a list of stocks near their 52-week lows to sieve out potential bargains. Studying what institutional investors have been buying or selling is another avenue. Institutional investors are typically large investment organisations, such as hedge funds, mutual funds, unit trust companies, sovereign wealth funds, insurance companies and so on. These investors tend to possess vastly greater resources than individual investors like you and me when researching stocks. Hence, it may be useful to keep a close eye on what they are doing, as a way to generate ideas. In this article, I will look at three Singapore stocks (among the top ten stocks) that have seen the highest net purchases in dollar valu

3 Blue-Chip Stocks to Buy During a Stock Market Crash
Since the most-recent peak of the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) seen on 2 May, the index has fallen some 9% to close at 3,281 on Tuesday. Short-term fears surrounding the global economy could bring the index much lower, but there is nothing to be worried about. The reason is because stock market declines allow one to purchase shares in fundamentally strong companies on the cheap. To know which stocks to buy during a market crash, you can arm yourself with a shopping list of the stocks that you like. In my list, I have three blue-chip companies. They are (in no particular ranking): 1) CapitaLand Mall Trust (SGX: C38U); 2) Singapore Technologies Engineering Ltd (SGX: S63); and 3) Thai Beverage Public Company Limited (SGX: Y92).

How To Choose The Best REITs To Invest In?
When it comes to investing in real estate investment trusts (REITs), most investors look at the distribution yield as part of their decision-making process. However, the distribution yield of a REIT tells us nothing about the sustainability of its distributions, nor the strengths or weaknesses of the REIT’s business. Instead of focusing solely on a REIT’s distribution yield, REITs investors should also look at other factors. Only then can they make a more informed investing decision with a REIT. Here are the important factors I look at. Growth in the basic numbers Firstly, I like to investigate whether a REIT’s gross revenue, net property income (NPI), and distribution to unitholders are growing consistently on an annual basis.

Singaporeans’ fascination for property investments stem from its meteoric rise since our island nation gained independence.

My Take on the 4.35% Astrea IV Class A-1 Secured Bonds Issue
For the first time, Temasek Holding is making available its least risky, private equity bond to retail investors like yourself. As of 6th Jun, the interest yield for Class A-1 is a yield of 4.35% for 10 years, callable in 5 years. According to Ho Ching, Temasek CEO, this is to help supplement your retirement income. This is not the first time corporate Singapore decide to come out with a low denominated bond so that common folks like myself can easily invest, without breaking the bank. For those who are unaware, bonds or debt instruments from organizations, corporate are typically denominated in $250,000. This makes it unavailable to a lot of wealth builders like yourself.
