Is SIA Engineering Company Ltd a Great Business to Own?
SIA Engineering Company Ltd (SGX: S59), or SIAEC, has probably seen better days. Its share price has tumbled from a high of around S$4.60 five years ago to just S$2.58 as the group faces structural changes and headwinds in the airline industry. As a recap, SIAEC provides extensive aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) to more than 80 international airline carriers and aerospace equipment manufacturers worldwide. The group owns six hangars and 17 in-house workshops in Singapore and provides line maintenance services to more than 50 airlines passing through Singapore. The airline industry has witnessed its fair share of structural changes over the last few years, as the proliferation of low-cost carriers (LCC) threatens to upend the business model for full-service airlines.

The Week Ahead: Sino-US Trade Talk, Brexit and American Inflation
The Sino-US trade talks are set to resume next week. Both sides already know what the other side wants. China wants America to drop the import tariffs, while America wants China to stop subsidising its state-owned enterprises. Why are they even talking? Unsurprisingly, nobody is holding their breath for a breakthrough. A bunch of Fed officials will take the rostrum. They include Esther George, who is happy to keep interest rates at current levels, Neel Kashkari, who would like the Fed to lower rates, and Fed chair Jerome Powell, who thinks that the US economy is in a good place. There are some US inflation numbers to digest. They should show a slight uplift in the headline rate from 1.7% to 1.9%. But core inflation should be unchanged at 2.4%. China returns from its Golden Week holiday to

3 Secrets to Constructing a Strong Investment Portfolio
Constructing a strong and effective portfolio is never an easy task, and the investor is responsible for continually reviewing his positions and tweaking them to optimise his capital allocation. Aside from trying to maximise gains from the growth of the companies within the portfolio, the investor also has to be aware of risks and be able to position the portfolio to mitigate them. It can feel like an attempt to juggle ten balls with just two hands! In my years of investing, I have learnt a lot about how to manage my portfolio such that I capitalise on the gains, earn a steady income, and yet, ensure the risks are adequately mitigated. This knowledge was gleaned through an iterative process of learning from mistakes, due diligence on companies, and tweaking individual positions. Here are

Why are Singapore Fund Expenses so High
In my capacity on my day job in Providend, I was asked to make a comment on a recent MorningStar study that came out. You can see my comments here: click to read article. Unfortunately, my Chinese is so lousy that I cannot translate this. Basically, Zaobao seeks a comment why local funds are comparatively so expensive and my answer is as above.
