The Week Ahead: Keppel Corporation On Tap
Singapore earnings season moves into second gear with Keppel Corporation (SGX: BN4) stepping into the spotlight. The industrial conglomerate appears to have weathered the downturn in the oil and gas sector. In October Keppel Corp said third-quarter profits jumped 30%, thanks to strong contributions from property, power and asset management. The offshore and marine sector was still smarting, though. CapitaLand Mall Trust (SGX: C38U) will be the first of two CapitaLand (SGX: C31) real estate investment trusts to post quarterly earnings. The owner of 16 shopping malls delivered a distribution of 2.78 cents for the third quarter, which was unchanged from a year ago. On the upside, footfall was up, as was occupancy rate. But on the downside, gross revenues slipped 0.2%. Results were better at

Here’s How Much You Would Have Today If You Invested $1,000 Into These 10 Popular Singapore Stocks 10 Years Ago
Many say the Singapore stock market is slow, lacklustre and even “dead”. However, for those who continue to put faith in stock listed here, can still find good value. 10 years ago, the Singapore stock market was flourishing, and it was right before the global financial crisis, that wiped out nearly 55% of the value of Singapore’s 30 largest stocks listed on the Straits Times Index, hit. Today, the STI has clawed back nearly 45% of those losses. This means that we’ve not yet recovered to the highs of 2007’s stock market. Nevertheless, we look at how a $1,000 investment in 10 popular stocks on the Singapore Exchange (SGX) 10 years ago would look like today. We also assume reinvestment of any dividends at the start of the following year to achieve compounded returns. #1 CapitaLand M

Tenants’ tough fight against their Landlords
The landscape for retail has changed dramatically these few years as online e-commerce have become more accessible, due to the improvement in the retail supply chain and processes of online retailers. Thus, more and more consumers are purchasing what they need online. This means that retailers need less space. For retailers that are primarily brick and mortar, they face a daunting prospect of having too short a time to ramp up their e-commerce strategy to compete. Many retailers face the prospect of closing down, and for the anchor tenants, they are factoring E-Commerce into their overall strategy and thus need a smaller retail space. All these spells trouble for the retail REITs. In Singapore, the retail REITs Suntec, SPH, Starhill Global REIT, Capitaland Mall, Frasers Centerpoint Trust a

Time To Take Profit On Which Retail REITs?
Singapore’s retail real estate investment trusts (REITs) are in an unenviable position. Retail REITs might be enjoying a cyclical recovery from a rebound in tourism and a more constructive economic landscape, but analysts from Maybank Kim Eng believes that these are not enough to overcome the headwinds. Rising rates, peak new supply in 2018 and fair valuations will be the first challenge for retail REITs in 2018. Following that, structural challenges from ecommerce continue to erode sales of retailers. Sales leakages from Singaporeans increasingly spending overseas also remain a structural concern. Be Highly Selective For Retail REITs For those who are looking to invest in the retail REIT sector, investors should be highly selective given the structural challenges. According to Maybank K

The Best Singapore Short Term Savings Account for 2018
Last year, after not bothering with efficiently managing my liquid money for a long while, I decided to take a look at what are some of the short term saving deposits available to us. So my setup for last year was a mixture of: OCBC 360 Hurdle Account UOB One Hurdle Account Singapore Savings Bonds Lion Global Money Market One year has passed and there are some changes. However, most of the plans available to you are still out there. But some of the plans on floating interest rates might start to look attractive. My criteria for short term savings account is still the same: Not to lose money Have liquidity not longer than 1 month Better than fixed deposit returns Easy to understand Not overly complex The current fixed deposit rates for 12 month duration varies from 0.25% to 0.35%.

Riskiest REITs based on their beta
The Singapore stock exchange has many REITs to choose from and investors usually base their buying decision on dividend yields. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); But how many have stopped to think of the risk of a REIT? What is risk? By risk, I mean how much the price of a REIT fluctuates. I.e. its volatility In the finance world, the term beta is used to measure how volatile a stock is. In this regard, volatility is synonymous with risk. Higher volatility = higher risk. The market used in this context is the STI index. In other contexts, it can be used to mean the general market such as the S&P500 or Dow Jones. A beta of 1 indicates that a stock, or REIT’s price moves lockstep with the market. A beat of less than 1 means that the REIT is less volatile th

Singapore’s Top 5 Blue-Chip Stocks with the Highest Dividend Yields
Since opening this week at 3243 points, the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) has gained 18.8% as compared to 2016’s closing level of 2881 points. According to a recent report by Singapore Exchange Limited (SGX: S68), this is the strongest annual price performance for the Singapore stock market since 2012, when the STI rose 19.7%.

The report added that the Singapore benchmark has “one of the region’s highest dividend yields”; the average dividend yield of the 30 STI components is 3.3%. With that, here are the top five blue-chip stocks with the highest yields: 1. Stealing the top spot is Hutchison Port Holdings Trust (SGX: NS8U) with a distribution yield of 8.3%.

Buying A New iPhone Every Year? Here’s How Much More You Will Have If You Invested The Money Instead
This article was written in collaboration with SGX. All views are the independent opinion of Investing isn’t something most people think about on a daily basis. Some even disregard it, thinking they don’t have enough money or knowledge to start. Others overlook it entirely because they’re too busy with their daily lives. As the latest iPhone X launch on 3 November 2017, we found out that the lack of disposable income isn’t necessarily the reason why people don’t invest, as media outlets reported hundreds had queued overnight outside the Apple store at Orchard Road just to get their hands on the phone. Selling at a retail price of between $1,648 (64GB) to $1,888 (256GB), many people in Singapore have shown their willingness to part with such an amount on discret
