10 Companies That Beat Singapore’s Benchmark Straits Times Index (STI) In 2019
The Straits Times Index (STI) comprises the 30 largest and most actively traded stocks in Singapore. They include well-known Singapore companies such DBS, SingTel, CapitaLand, Keppel Corp and Wilmar. This is why it is often used as the benchmark return for Singapore investors. Investors who are experienced or prefer to embark on active investment strategies will try to beat the benchmark returns, while new investors or those who prefer to embark on a passive investment strategy will try to match the benchmark return. The simplest way to match the benchmark return will typically invest in the STI exchange traded fund (ETF) – either the SPDR STI ETF or the Nikko AM Singapore STI ETF.

Keppel Corporation (SGX:BN4) – Understanding Its Business
Analysing large corporations is never an easy task, but the method we like to use is to break down the organisation into component parts in order to look at each carefully. The same method can be used effectively for conglomerate companies as well. A “conglomerate” is defined as a large company with many disparate divisions that may or may not be totally unrelated to one another. Let’s have a look at one of the more well-known blue-chip conglomerates in Singapore – Keppel Corporation Limited(SGX: BN4). Investors can trace the roots of the company back to 1968 when Temasek Holdings, Singapore’s very own sovereign wealth fund, founded Keppel Shipyard back then. Since then, the group has moved on to expand its business into various divisions, and this conglomerat

4 Companies That Cut Their Dividends Recently
No investor likes to experience the pain of a dividend cut. However, this phenomenon is almost impossible to avoid as businesses go through ups and downs according to the ebb and flow of the economy. Companies cut dividends for a variety of reasons, ranging from the need to conserve more cash for a rainy day, poorer profitability due to decreased demand for their products and services, and also preparation for a large merger and acquisition. Investors need to analyse the underlying reasons for the reduction in dividends as not all such events are negative by nature. A reduction in dividends can help prepare the company for rough weather ahead and conserve precious cash, but there are also cases where a decrease in dividends marks the start of a long, painful decline in business performanc

United Engineers Must Improve Corporate Governance; Retail Shareholder Proposes Oxley As Board Representative
Last week, the Securities Investors Association of Singapore celebrated its 20th anniversary and the occasion was a reminder to investors about the importance of putting emphasis on companies to uphold high standards of corporate governance.  Good corporate governance is one of the key fundamentals to a company’s success and long-term sustainability. At heart, it helps to reflect on a company’s values, supports its vision and shapes the culture. The goal is to help managers of a company mitigate risks, safeguard stakeholders’ interest and ultimately enhance value.   On the other hand, ineffective mechanisms or poor corporate governance could erode the very foundations that a company was built upon and lead to disastrous consequences.  For instance, when it came to light in 2017 t

4 Signs to Assess If an Economic Downturn Is Imminent
Many companies’ fortunes are inextricably tied to the economy, as they rely on supply chains and consumer demand to power their business activities. Investors who are vigilant should be able to pick out signs of corporate weakness just by observing the financials and metrics and reading up on the management discussion and analyses (MD&A). Here are four clear indicators that can serve investors well as they watch out for red flags impacting the economy. Note that some of these aspects may be company or industry-specific, but if a majority of companies report such attributes, investors can probably conclude that a weakened economy is to blame. 1. Lower profits or profits turning to losses When companies start to report lower year-on-year profits, this is a sign that economic indic

These 3 Companies Trading at Year-Lows Might Be Worth a Second Look
Investors who are looking for cheap stocks to invest in may wish to sift through a list of companies that have recently hit a 52-week low, as this usually offers a fertile ground for such investments. However, it is not as simple as just buying cheap companies without digging a little deeper into the underlying reasons. The same situation can be applied to well-known companies as well. Despite being famous, such companies are also subject to the same economic forces and competitive threats as all other businesses. They have to grapple with economic headwinds and disruptive challenges to ensure that they stay relevant, and may even be forced to evolve and adapt to rapidly-changing conditions.

11 Singapore-Listed Shares Likely to Be Affected by the Chinese Yuan Devaluation
The Chinese yuan slumped to an 11-year low on Monday, 26 September to around 7.1425 to the US dollar. This was touted to be China’s retaliation to the US imposing more tariffs on Chinese products. Because of that, the Chinese yuan has also weakened considerably against the Singapore dollar over the last year. As of the time of writing, one Singapore dollar can be exchanged for 5.16 Chinese yuan, as compared to 4.98 just a year ago. The sudden devaluation of the Chinese currency will definitely have a knock-on effect on numerous Singapore-listed China companies that report their earnings and pay dividends in Singapore dollars. With that said, here are some companies that will be negatively affected by China’s currency devaluation. China-focused REITs There are a number of REITs
