Is It a Good Time to Buy Hong Kong Stocks?
To say that Hong Kong stocks have been volatile the last few months would be a massive understatement. The Hang Seng Index, a barometer of the Hong Kong stock market, has had wild swings this year. It made impressive gains in the first half of 2019, from around 25,130 to a peak of close to 30,160. But political unrests and protests in the city have rocked investor sentiment. Since the protests began in the city, the Hang Seng Index has shed around 12%. This week, though, there was some reprieve as Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam announced the withdrawal of the hugely unpopular extradition bill. Buoyed by the news, investors flooded the market, pushing the Hang Seng Index up 4% on Tuesday, the day the news broke, marking the biggest single-day gain since November 2018.  Long-term impact?

Like Singtel? This Singapore Blue Chip Might Be a Better Long-Term Investment
Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SGX: Z74) shares the Singapore telecom spotlight with M1 Ltd and StarHub Ltd. The company’s share price has declined significantly over the last few years. Given its lower share price, investors might be attracted to the company now. Clearly, Singtel is a good candidate for further research given the negative sentiments. Yet, it’s not the only company worth considering. Let’s look at one company that might be an even better investment than Singtel, especially over the long run. The contender The company we’re talking about is Jardine Matheson Holdings Limited (SGX: J36), a conglomerate with interest in the web of Jardine companies that include Jardine Strategic Holdings Limited (SGX: J37), Jardine Cycle & Car

Quick Thought Of The Week: Trust
Did you notice how quickly markets recovered their mojo when Donald Trump told the media at one of the G7 press conferences in Biarritz that China had called to make a deal? He said China desperately wants to make a deal. He embellished it generously with his usual hyperbole that China is hurting, China s stealing billions of dollars from America, China is losing millions of jobs and that China is paying billions in US-imposed tariffs. Every man and his dog who was watching probably knew that no such phone call had either been made or received. Nor was China desperate about doing a deal. If anything, China is quite happy to sit on its hands…. …. but that didn’t stop traders from pushing up stock market index futures. Like Pavlov’s dog, they react with utmost pred

Better Buy: City Developments vs. Hongkong Land
Two of the largest property development and investment companies in Singapore’s stock market are City Developments Limited (SGX: C09) and Hongkong Land Holdings Limited (SGX: H78). Unfortunately, both have produced lacklustre returns for their investors over the past five years. Adjusting for dividends, City Developments’ shares have generated a paltry gain of 3.6%, according to S&P Global Market Intelligence, while Hongkong Land’s shares have produced a slight loss of 2.6%. Singapore’s stock market benchmark, the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI), has climbed by 12.5% in the same period, even after including gains from dividends. So it’s clear that both real estate giants have not given much reasons for their long-time investors to smile. But which of t

This Singapore Blue Chip Rallied 8% Yesterday. Is it Still Worth Buying?
Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam yesterday announced that her government would formally withdraw an extradition bill that started massive protests in the territory. Earlier in the day, the Hang Seng Index (HSI) soared almost 4% on reports that the bill is set to be removed. Well-known Hong Kong companies such as railway operator MTR and flag carrier Cathay Pacific jumped 6.4% and 5.3%, respectively. Over in Singapore, one company with a strong focus on Hong Kong rallied as well. And that company is none other than Hongkong Land Holdings Limited (SGX: H78), a property group with assets mainly in the Special Administrative Region (SAR). Hongkong Land’s shares soared 8.3% to US$5.89 yesterday. Despite the rally, the company’s shares still look cheap. Let’s find out why. Behind t

IREIT Global: A Bull’s View
Listed in August 2014, IREIT Global (SGX: UD1U) is a real estate investment trust (REIT) that owns five freehold properties in Germany. The REIT gave investors something to smile about when it announced that its distribution per unit (DPU) increased by 1.1% for the six months ended 30 June 2019. Can this growth continue? I think so; here’s why. A decent balance sheet with low cost of debt Acquisitions are by far the fastest and easiest way for a REIT to increase its DPU. IREIT is in a great position to make more debt-funded acquisitions that can be yield-accretive. As of 30 June 2019, its aggregate leverage was 36.2%, still some way below the 45% regulatory ceiling. What’s more, the REIT has one of the lowest effective interest rates per annum at just 1.5%, giving it a high i

Hongkong Land Holdings Limited’s Shares Are on Sale Now
Hongkong Land Holdings Limited  (SGX: H78), or HK Land, operates in the property sector. It is mainly involved in the property development, investment and management business. Its property businesses are spread across China, Southeast Asia and in its home base of Hong Kong. Recently, the stock tanked by 27% from its 52 weeks high price of US$7.53, mainly driven by the turmoil in Hong Kong. I think the challenges in Hong Kong will have an impact on HK Land’s business. But to what extent the impact will be is something that nobody can really answer. What I do know is that the company is currently trading at an extremely attractive valuation. Historical metrics One way to look at valuation is to compare its current valuation metric to its historical metric. Let’s consider a

6 Investment Themes To Ride On The M&A Wave (Part 1)
With 14 companies in the midst of privatisation, it is safe to say that the M&A and privatisation wave is gaining momentum. Based on data from DBS, the number of M&A deals have exceeded the whole of 2018 and 2017 respectively. In privatisation deals over the last three years, shareholders could gain around 15 percent premium over the last transacted share price. DBS thinks that such opportunity continues to exist for investors to capitalize on. Screening Criteria For M&A Plays By DBS To screen for privatisation candidates, DBS uses three criteria: (1) Cash rich; (2) Low liquidity; and (3) Majority shareholder has more than 50 percent ownership. In this 3-part M&A series, we summarise six M&A investment themes from DBS for investors to consider as an alpha generating inv

Why I Would Not Consider Ireit Global At Their Current Valuation
Ireit Global is a Reit I used to own in the past due to the strong profiling of their freehold assets in Germany, high dividend yield, low borrowing costs and long WALE with concentrated blue chip tenant profile.You would think that Germany is a strong powerhouse in Europe and they are too big to fail, so everything else equal, it's something which is probably too good to be true, especially since they debuted and listed back in 2014.I bought them in the past in the range of 63 to 66 cents when most people were skeptical about the relatively new manager at that time and managed to sell them when they were at around 73 cents. The main reason I sold was because Tikehau Capital came in and they kept harping about a possible inorganic growth through acquisitions in their investors present

ST Engineering, Dairy Farm, and CDL Are Paying Dividends This Week
I like to monitor companies that dish out dividends for investment ideas. In the next few days, there are some companies going ex-dividend. In other words, you need to own shares in the company before a particular day of the week to receive their dividends. Let’s look at three of those companies. Wednesday, 21 August 2019 On Wednesday, Singapore Technologies Engineering Ltd (SGX: S63) will be going ex-dividend. The conglomerate is dishing out S$0.05 per share for its second quarter of 2019. For the latest quarter, ST Engineering’s revenue grew 8% year-on-year to S$1.78 billion while its net profit rose 18% to S$138.2 million. In April, the acquisition of MRA Systems (MRAS) was completed, and that contributed well to both sales and earnings. The group’s future looks brigh

IREIT Global Evolving with CDL’s Involvement – My Take on this 7.4% Yielder
At the end of April, City REIT Management, a subsidiary of City Development Ltd (CDL) purchase 50% of IREIT’s manager. City Strategic, also a subsidiary of CDL, purchase a substantial stake in IREIT itself. In November 2016, Tikehau Capital purchased a 80% stake in IReit’s manager. The rest of the stake is held by Chinese Tycoon Tong Jinquan and Soilbuild founder Lim Chap Huat. Tong Jinquan owns 297 mil units (47%), Chap Huat owns 33 mil units (5.2%), Tikehau Capital owns 52.6 mil (8.3%). In this deal, Tikehau Investment Asia Pacific bought back Tong’s stake in the manager. They then sold half the stake in the manager to City Reit Management, which is CDL’s arm in doing reit management. Now, Tikehau and City Reit owns roughly 50% each in the manager. Then, Tika
