4 Investment Strategies To Navigate Singapore’s Stock Market
With the negative momentum from 2018, the STI could remain under pressure despite the strong performance in January 2019, according to RHB. While the valuation and dividend yield of STI makes it compelling for long-term investments, RHB thinks that investors should continue to stay selective in navigating the market in 2019. RHB recommends four investment strategies that focus on stocks with stable earnings, strong balance sheets and sustainable dividends. Investors Takeaway: 4 Investment Strategies To Navigate Singapore’s Stock Market By RHB Rotate Into Defensive Sectors While RHB notes that the markets could move sideways for now, RHB believes that now is not the time to abandon risk assets, especially for long-term investors.

Which Type of Return on Your Shares Should You Focus On?
Most investors may not bother much about the definition of the word “returns”, as this implies profits and is something which is always welcome. However, if we break down the word “returns” into separate components, we find that there is a capital gains/losses component to it and also a dividends component, both of which make up the total return for a stock. I had discussed dividends extensively in previous articles (see here and here), so let us focus on the capital gains aspect in this article. Investment Return And Speculative Return The total capital gain or loss can be further sub-divided into two distinct categories known as the “investment return” and the “speculative return”. The investment return refers to the returns investors enjoy

Don’t Let Fear And Uncertainty Cloud Your Judgement
With the news and media outlets constantly blaring out bad news on lingering uncertainties and financial turmoil, investors would probably be filled with a dark sense of foreboding as we enter 2019. It’s important to emphasise here that while it is crucial to keep up with business news to understand what’s going on in the world around us, it’s also equally important to insulate ourselves from negative emotions. Pessimism is a condition which makes valuations attractive, but it may have a harmful effect on an investor’s psychology and cause him to make unwanted errors. In this article, I will look at two common emotions which afflict investors – fear and uncertainty. Fear – Of Losses And Of Losing Out Fear is a very common emotion when it comes to investi

CDL Hospitality Trust’s Distribution Falls 2.1%
CDL Hospitality Trust‘s (SGX: J85) distribution per stapled security (DPS) fell 2.1% in the fourth quarter of 2018. The absence of revenue contribution from three properties — two divested and one being renovated — were to blame for the lower distributions this quarter. However, the new year could potentially lead to a turnaround with the full-year contribution from its acquisition of an Italian hotel and the reopening of its resort in the Maldives. Here are the key takeaways to note from its earnings scorecard. Fourth-quarter 2018: Revenue decreased by 5.4% to S$52.3 million Net property income declined 5.4% to S$38.4 million DPS slid 2.1% to 2.77 Singapore cents Full-year 2018: Revenue dipped 1.2% to S$201.8 million Net property income declined 3.8% to S$146.0 mill

Accounting Demystified: Mark-To-Market Accounting
The third part of this series looks into a somewhat confusing and contentious accounting issue – that of mark-to-market accounting. Readers can access the first two sections here and here, on accounts receivable and revenue recognition respectively. Mark-to-market (“MTM”) accounting refers to the practice of pegging market values to various items within the balance sheet in order to recognise its most recent market value. This article will discuss the basis for such treatment as well as some pros and cons.

Are Mergers & Acquisitions Always Good For Investors?
There’s nothing which graces the headlines and makes business news more exciting than mergers and acquisition (M&A) announcements. With the desire to grow larger and get better, more and more companies are on an acquisition spree to turbo-charge their growth and to create more “shareholder value”. Investors who are on the receiving end of such announcements from the companies within their portfolio should carefully scrutinise the deals as M&A do not always turn out well. The devil, as they say, is in the details and this article attempts to explain the good and the bad when it comes to M&A.

3 REITs I’m Looking Out For In 2019
Going into 2019, there are a couple of real estate investment trusts (REITs) I’m eyeing. The reasons I’m interested in them range from improving business prospects to poor unit price performance of late. In this article, let’s look at three of those REITs. REIT #1: CapitaLand Mall Trust (SGX: C38U) CapitaLand Mall Trust is the largest REIT by market capitalisation in Singapore’s stock market. The REIT owns 15 shopping malls in Singapore, including Tampines Mall, Junction 8, and Plaza Singapura. 2019 would be an interesting year for CapitaLand Mall Trust.

S-REIT Report Card: Here’s How Singapore REITs Performed In Third Quarter 2018
Against the backdrop of a rising interest rate environment, REITs seem to be one of the obvious losers. This is because REITs are asset-heavy investments that require high levels of leverage, borrowing substantial amounts of money to purchase properties that they subsequently rent out.

Getting Defensive With REITs (Part 1)
Tides seemed to have turned and the market appears to be on the verge of a correction. The outlook for December is getting ominous and investors should be prepared. According to RHB, it is now time to start getting defensive with REITs as the macroeconomic environment becomes more volatile amidst the threat of faster rate hikes from the Fed. RHB: REIT Outlook By Sub-Sector Hospitality Hospitality REITs have been underperforming over the last two years due to a steady decline in hotel revenue per available room (RevPAR) post the 2012 peak. RHB notes that this decline was mainly driven by high hotel supply growth. For the last four years, hotel supply in Singapore has been growing at 4-5 percent per annum, which exceeds the 1-3 percent demand growth. However, going forward, RHB believes t
