Earnings Season: 2 Beaten Down Stocks To Watch
Numerous companies are about to release their earnings report card. There are two companies in particular that I will be keeping a close eye on. They are Raffles Medical Group Ltd (SGX:BSL) and AEM Holdings Ltd (SGX: AWX). Both these companies have been hit by massive sell-downs, leading to share prices falling more than 30% from their peaks. Raffles Medical has been hit by negative market sentiment due to a saturated private healthcare market in Singapore and regional competition for medical tourism. AEM Holdings, on the other hand, after surging in 2017, has fallen hard from its peak due to fears that a US-China trade war can impact the company’s earnings. However, both companies, in my view, have a bright future and the sell down might be overdone. Here’s what I’m looking out for

Here Are 3 Stocks That Are Currently Trading Near Their 52-Week Lows
I’m a value investor. So, I like to search for companies that are trading at good value. A list of stocks that are near their respective 52-week lows is a good place to start my search for a good reason. These are the stocks that are either neglected or beaten down by investors. And, some of these stocks can be bargains in relation to their actual economic worth because market participants can at times react too negatively to certain companies that have sound long-term prospects but that have experienced some short-term stumbles. As such, I will screen for stocks that are trading near 52-week lows nearly once every week. There are many stocks that pop up on my screen each time I run it. So, what are the companies that have shown up on this week’s list? Here are three of them: Jardine

Raffles Medical Group Ltd Is Near Its 52-Week Low Price Now: Is It Cheap?
Raffles Medical Group Ltd (SGX: BSL) is a private healthcare services provider with operations in Singapore and a number of other Asian countries. In Singapore, the company has its flagship Raffles Hospital. It is also developing two hospitals in the Chinese cities of Chongqing and Shanghai. At the current price of S$1.02 (at the time of writing), Raffles Medical’s shares are just 1 cent higher than the 52-week low price of S$1.01. This raises a question: Is Raffles Medical cheap now? This question is important because if the firm’s shares are cheap, it might be a good opportunity for investors. Unfortunately, there is no easy answer. However, we can still get some insight by comparing Raffles Medical’s current valuations with the market’s valuation. The three valuation metrics

1 Formidable Singapore-Listed Stock That You Can Pass On To The Next Generation
In a recent article, I discussed the need to think in terms of decades and even generations when it comes to investing in the stock market. In the article, I mentioned: “It requires a considerable amount of time for any business to do well. By focusing on the long-term, we are forced to think about the quality and fundamentals of the company we are investing in. If we have an “investing” time frame of just one month, we would only be looking at stock price fluctuations alone, and this will be to the detriment of our portfolio. The daily fluctuation in stock prices will not do any good for our psychological health as well. However, if our investing time frame is measured in decades or even generations, we will be forced to think about the things that matter: The long-term prospects o

Here are some of the most interesting articles that have appeared on the Motley Fool Singapore’s website this week. How To Identify REITs That Have A Portfolio That Can Appreciate In Value A real estate investment trust (REIT) can grow its portfolio either through acquisitions or appreciation of its property value. The former usually requires the REIT to take on more risk through additional borrowings, while the latter is due to the nature of the properties held by the REIT. In his article here, Motley Fool Singapore contributor, Jeremy Chia, shows us some ways to identify REITs with a portfolio that can grow in value.

These 2 Stocks Have Fallen Hard From Their Peaks, But They Could Still Be Great Investments Today
iFAST Corporation Ltd (SGX: AIY) and Raffles Medical Group Ltd (SGX: BSL) have seen their share prices fall hard from their respective peaks. But, I believe that these two companies could go on to trounce the market in the years to come. Here’s why. Company 1: iFAST iFAST is an Internet-based investment products distribution platform that provides a comprehensive range of investment products and services to both corporate clients and retail investors. At the time of writing, iFAST’s shares are exchanging hands at S$1.06 apiece, which is down 32% from a peak of S$1.565 seen in May 2015. Mrs. Market may have been spooked by the losses the company is currently making in its China business. In 2017, iFAST’s China operations posted a loss, just like in 2016. However, the company’s busin

Raffles Medical Group Ltd’s Stock Price At A Multi-Year Low: Is It Time To Give Up On It?
Raffles Medical Group Ltd (SGX: BSL), a one-time stock market darling, has been facing numerous challenges in recent years. A saturated private healthcare market in Singapore and strong competition from regional players for medical tourists have led to stagnating growth for the company. Consequently, market participants have driven its stock price down by nearly 40% from its all-time high that was reached in July 2015. Analysts from DBS Group Holdings Ltd’s (SGX: D05) research arm have even downgraded Raffles Medical Group and have set a near-term target price of S$1.00, which is just below its current stock price of S$1.01. Investors who are holding on to Raffles Medical’s shares are likely feeling the pressure to sell. However, as a shareholder of Raffles Medical, I believe the compa

These 2 Companies Have Recently Announced Growth In Their Latest Results
We are reaching the tail-end of the earnings season. Given that many companies have already reported their results, it might be useful to categorise them into three buckets of positive, negative and mixed. In this article, I will look at two companies that have recently reported positive results. Venture Corporation Ltd (SGX: V03) is the first company that we will look at in this article. As a quick introduction, Venture Corporation is an electronics manufacturing services provider with expertise in a wide range of activities. Overall, quarterly revenue was up by 1.5% year-on-year to S$856.0 million. Profit attributable to shareholders was up by 72.2% year-on-year to S$83.7 million. As a result, Venture’s diluted earnings per share (EPS) was up by 67.4% year-on-year to 28.8 cents. As at

1 Reason Why Raffles Medical Group Ltd Is Not That Bad After All
Raffles Medical Group Ltd (SGX: BSL) is one of the largest private healthcare groups in Singapore. Established in 1976, it now operates in a total of 12 cities across Singapore, China, Japan, Vietnam and Cambodia. Of late, the company’s stock has not been doing well. From an all-time high of S$1.675 seen in May 2016, Raffles Medical’s shares closed at S$1.08 each on 18 May 2018, down by 36%. One of the main possible reasons for this poor performance is that Raffles Medical’s business growth has slowed to a crawl. From 2014 to 2017, the company’s earnings per share has stayed at around 4.0 Singapore cents throughout. However, instead of looking at just the earnings per share alone, there’s another angle to analyse a company, and that would be to look at its re
