5 things to know before you invest in the Phillip SING Income ETF
A year ago, Phillip Capital Management, along with Lion Global Investors, launched the Lion-Phillip S-REIT ETF. The ETF aimed to give investors a way to invest in a diversified basket of Singapore REITs (S-REITs) which paid a steady stream of distributions. (At the moment, the average distribution yield for S-REITs is 6.8%.) The ETF was met with a largely positive response from the market – Lion Global Investors and Phillip Capital Management initially aimed to raise S$40-50 million but exceeded their target when the fund raised over S$100 million last October. Capitalizing on the Singapore market’s appetite for yield, Phillip Capital Management has now launched the Phillip SING Income ETF. The initial offer period for the ETF will close at 11:00 a.m. on 19 October 2018 before its list

These 3 Blue-Chips’ Share Prices Have Fallen By More Than 20% From Their 52-Week Highs
Warren Buffett once said that as an investor, it is important to be “fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.” The idea is simple. When everyone is buying shares in a company, it’s unlikely that the company’s shares will be a good bargain. On the other hand, when others are shying away from the shares of a company, we might be able to pick some up at a good price. How can we tell if investors are staying away from a company’s shares? By seeing if it has fallen hard in recent times. In this spirit, here are three blue-chip shares with prices that have declined significantly from their respective highs over the past year: Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited (SGX: O39), Singapore Airlines Ltd  (SGX: C6L), and Keppel Corporation Limited  (SGX: BN4).

Keppel's Multi-baggers stock M1
Walau!45. M1 is not a new business for Keppel. Keppel was one of the founding shareholders in 1994, before its telephone service was launched in 1997, and the IPO in 2002. We have worked with and supported M1 for over 20 years, and it has yielded very goodreturns.46. Keppel has invested S$170 million over the years, and in return received S$737 million of dividends and proceeds from the sale of some shares. In addition, Keppel’s present 19.33% stake, held through Keppel T&T, had a market value of S$291 million as at 21 September 2018, before we announced our offer.47. In short, M1 has been a good investment for Keppel. We believe that with the necessary transformation, it can continue to be a valuable asset for the Group. But we have no illusion tha

Alibaba’s Jack Ma to revive SingPost share price?
Nowadays, it is not surprising that many of the blue chips in Singapore Exchange suffer from poor stock performance because of the global headwinds and challenging operating environment. But this is certainly not the case for SingPost share price, which plunged after the announcement of 40% decline in net profit for Q1FY18/19. Upon the release of the financial result in August 2018, investors sent SingPost share price reeling from $1.38 to as low as $1.03. Till now, SingPost share price has not recovered its form and is on course to retreat below the $1.00 mark. Should investors run for their lives? Before writing this counter off, it should be noted that Alibaba’s Jack Ma is a major shareholder of SingPost, with stake amounting to 14.5%. Question now is: will Jack Ma buy over SingTel’

STI has dropped almost 17% since 2 May! Is a bear market coming? (14 Oct 18)
Dear all, U.S. equity markets have logged their worst weekly performance in the past six months. For our local market, STI has dropped 16.7% from an intra-day high of 3,642 on 2 May 2018 to an intra-day low of 3,035 on 11 Oct 2018. It closed at 3,069 on 12 Oct 2018. Is a bear market coming? There are mixed views. Bears are saying that we have not reached the bottom yet. Some perma-bears are even saying this may be the start of the bear market. Bulls are saying that this represents a window of opportunity to accumulate stocks on weakness and that the bull market is not over yet. My personal view is that this is unlikely to be the start of the bear market. Since last month, I have already informed clients to trim their portfolios. In fact, on 26 Sep, I have sent out another email to reiterat

The Week Ahead: Hang Onto Your Hats
Singapore’s fourth-quarter earnings season kicks off with Singapore Press Holdings (SGX: T39) stepping into the spotlight on Monday. In July, the publisher of The Straits Times said third-quarter profits jumped 64% to S$47 million. This was thanks to lower impairment charges that boosted operating profits. Meanwhile, SPH is focussing on acquiring cash-yielding real estate assets overseas. SPH is also teaming up with Keppel Corporation (SGX: BN4), which also reports earnings next week, to buy Singapore’s smallest telecom company M1 (SGX: B2F). Keppel said in July that stronger earnings from its property and infrastructure divisions pushed up second-quarter profits by 44%. The industrial conglomerate added that the recent rise in oil prices has prompted growing optimism in the Offshore

3 Blue Chips That Remind You Of Warren Buffett’s Love For Hamburgers
The bear has bare its fangs on our local stock market. Following the plunge in US equities on Wednesday overnight, local benchmark Straits Times Index (STI) plunged as much as 3 percent to 3,035.2 on Thursday, 11 October 2018. The STI managed to regain some ground to close 2.7 percent in the red at 3,047. The plunge in stocks worldwide was attributed to spiking US bond yields. Investors seem to be pricing in the risks of an imminent recession if interest rates continue to rise and push up borrowing costs. For the time being, the STI is being supported technically by the critical 3,000-point psychological level, giving local investors some reprieve. However, investors are not in the clear yet. At the current level, the STI is 16.5 percent down from its peak of 3,641.65 which was seen in Apr

SingTel share price sitting on epic time bomb
What a year it has been for the Singapore telecom industry. The crazy competition has seen StarHub retrenching 300 staff while M1 is the subject of buyout offer by Keppel and SPH. Despite the extensive shake-up in the local telecom industry, leading player SingTel stands tall against the relentless waves of changes. SingTel share price also remains resilient in the face of the unprecedented disruptions that had impacted StarHub and M1. With 735 million mobile customers in 21 countries, SingTel’s investment moat is indeed unassailable. Investors would note that SingTel share price has been bearish in recent months. However, the recent M1 general offer had led to a mini recovery for SingTel share price because many observers deemed that the industry consolidation would benefit SingTel. But

Investors’ Corner (United Overseas Bank, M1, Valuetronics Holdings, Soilbuild Business Space REIT)
United Overseas Bank Price – $26.85 Target – $33.30 The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) raised the US federal funds rate (FFR) by 25 basis points (bps) on 26 Sep-2018, and indicated the possibility of another FFR hike in December with three more to follow next year. Historically, there is a positive correlation between FFR and 3-month SIBOR, which has also risen to an average of 1.63% in 3Q18 from 1.51% in the prior quarter representing a 12 bps q-o-q increment. This will help to widen the 3Q18 net interest margin for United Overseas Bank (UOB). Furthermore, healthy sales in recent property launches indicated that the Government’s property cooling measures in early July might have limited impact on mortgage growth. Meanwhile, UOB pressed on with its plans for a digital bank, whi

Institutional Investors Were Buying These 3 Shares In September
There are many ways to find investment ideas. Some useful methods 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.

Acquisition Stirs Excitement On The Local Bourse
In line with markets’ anticipation, the Federal Reserve raised interest rates by 25 basis points in September, bringing the benchmark rate to a range of 2 percent to 2.25 percent. The central bank also indicated its intention to tighten once more in December and three more times next year. Aside from the Federal Open Market Committee, the United States came to an agreement with Canada, along with Mexico, on a revised trade deal called the USMCA to replace the current NAFTA. The new deal gives the US greater access to Canada’s dairy market and allows extra imports of Canadian cars.

M1 Takeover Bid Is Sparking Interest In SG’s Telco Companies
The telco sector isn’t the sexiest recently. But in the past week, the spotlight has shone on the telco sector, thanks to Keppel Corp’s plans to consolidate in the mobile industry. Keppel Corp announced last week that it is launching a buyout offer together with Singapore Press Holdings to take over M1. Currently, Keppel Corp owns 19.3 percent of M1 while SPH owns 13.5 percent of M1. They are looking to acquire Axiata Group’s 28.7 percent stake in M1 to become an individual majority shareholder. According to analysts, this will allow the new major shareholder to dictate the business strategy. Furthermore, the deal will allow M1 to utilise Keppel’s datacentre assets to supplement its weak enterprise segment. M1 can also retail Keppel Electric’s energy to its home customers and bun

What Investors Should Take Note of Singapore Telecommunications Limited Regional Diversification Strategy
Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SGX: Z74) or Singtel, is one of the three main telcos in Singapore. The other two are M1 Ltd (SGX: B2F) and StarHub Ltd (SGX: CC3). The company recently published its annual report for the financial year ending 31 March 2018. Reading an annual report is one of the best ways to keep up with a company’s developments. So, I decided to go through Singtel’s latest annual report to understand the company’s prospects, and how it had performed in the last 12 months. Generally, when reading an annual report, I will pay close attention to the letter to shareholders that the company’s chairman or CEO writes. In this article, we will focus on one area that I found to be interesting: diversification. Associates and joint ventures For those who are new to S

4 Stocks This Week (M1 Acquisition) [28 September 2018] – Keppel; Keppel T&T; SPH; M1
On Thursday (27 September), Keppel Corp and SPH announced that they will be making a pre-conditional voluntary general offer of $2.06 for the remaining shares in M1 that they do not own. Four listed companies are involved in the takeover offer of M1 – they are detailed below. M1 – Singapore’s 3rd Largest Telco Provider M1 is the third largest telecommunications provider in Singapore. The telecommunications industry itself has been heating up in recent years. In the past couple of years, the telecommunications market has become increasingly competitive. One main reason was the awarding of a fourth telco license to TPG Telecom, an Australia-based telco provider. This has also led to the introduction of products with tighter margins, such as the SIM-only plans, by all telco providers. L

A POSSIBLE STOCK TO BE PRIVATISED NEXT!
Dear readers, ever since Keppel Corporation and SPH combined forces in a bid to acquire M1 and with Keppel Corporation announcing its plan to take Keppel T&T private, I could sense that Singapore stocks markets which seem to be languishing suddenly feels a sense of excitement! Some investors would have become stirred to guess that in the current lacklustre Singapore stocks markets which offers no clues as to which way ahead is for the stocks, there is one possible theme to consider: possible privatization of Singapore stocks! For such theme is considered rather attractive in the current stocks markets where valuations are cheap. Read more »
