Should Dividend Investors Chase High Yields or Fast-Growing Payouts?
As a long-term investor, the logic of investing for dividends seems obvious to me. You invest in dividend stocks to receive growth and an income stream (which in Singapore is tax-free) in return. However, what may be less obvious is that investors have two options when it comes to dividends; companies that have higher dividend yields but stable payouts or ones that have lower dividend yields but fast-growing payouts. The key question, then, is which one should dividend investors pursue? Age influences style My answer would be, it depends on your age. Retirees, or those who are nearing retirement, will naturally gravitate towards stable, higher-yielding stocks including REITs. Given their regular income streams, it’s understandable that a higher return – in terms of the absolute dividen

Has Berkshire Hathaway Moved Away From Value Investing by Investing in
That was precisely the question asked during the 2019 annual general meeting (AGM) for Berkshire Hathaway, a conglomerate controlled by well-known investors Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger. The Amaz(ing) debate Earlier this month, Berkshire Hathaway revealed that it bought a stake in online retailing giant Amazon is far from the traditional “value” stock, with a heady price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 78. The debatable purchase prompted a question from a shareholder during Berkshire Hathaway’s AGM. The shareholder asked: “With the full understanding that Warren had no input on the Amazon purchase, and that, relative to Berkshire, it’s likely a small stake, the investment still caught me off guard. I’m wondering if I should begin to think differently about Berkshire

How to Build a Passive Income With Blue-Chip Dividend Stocks
Building a passive income from blue-chip dividend stocks is a realistic goal for many investors. Doing so could lead to a worthwhile second income, or increased financial freedom in older age. Of course, there is a temptation to lock-in profits made from successful investments. Similarly, spending dividends received, rather than reinvesting them, may also seem like a good idea in the short run. However, sticking with stocks that are delivering high growth and rising dividends could be the best means of producing a sustainable income in the long run. Reinvesting dividends Although it can be tempting to spend dividends received each year in order to supplement a primary income, the impact of reinvesting them could be far more appealing in the long run. In fact, various studies have shown tha

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.

How Cheap Are Singapore Shares Right Now?
Earlier this month, the local stock market was hit by news that US President Donald Trump has increased tariffs on Chinese goods, causing China to retaliate. With that, the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) has tumbled 5.3% thus far in May. Brave investors who are looking to scoop up some bargains in the stock market could be wondering if Singapore stocks, in general, are cheaper than before. There are two methods to determine if Singapore shares are cheap currently. The first way is to compare the market’s current price-to-earnings (PE) ratio to the market’s long-term average PE ratio. The second approach involves looking at the number of net-net stocks in the stock market. PE valuation method Since it is difficult to get the past daily PE ratios of the Straits Times Index, the PE rati

The Week Ahead: Singtel, SATS And Singapore Airlines
So, now we know. US importers that bring Chinese-made goods into America must pay a tariff of 25% on some US$200 billion worth of items,  rather than just 10%. China is unlikely to take this lying down. It has threatened to retaliate. We wait with bated breath. Staying in America, retail sales for April could provide some clues to the impact of higher import prices on consumer spending. They are expected to show a sharp drop in growth from the previous month. But retail sales growth in China in April could be almost unchanged from the previous month at 8.7%. Malaysia will report retail sales for March. It is expected to have grown 7.7% from a year ago, which would be slower than the 8.5% in February. Malaysia is also expected to say that the economy grew at an annualised rate of 4.5% in

Is Genting Singapore Ltd’s Stock a Bargain Now After Falling 29% Last Year?
Genting Singapore Ltd (SGX: G13) is the operator of the integrated resort, Resorts World Sentosa.

Should You Sell in May and Go Away?
“Sell in May and go away” is a famous adage in the stock market. It states that we should sell stocks at the start of the warm weather in May and reinvest only when the cold weather starts in November. Investors have a belief that when the warm weather begins, the lack of market participants (probably due to vacation breaks) can make for a lacklustre market period. It’s summer all year round in Singapore and it seems that investors here are indeed selling out in May due to the recent weak performance of the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI). The Singapore stock market benchmark has fallen 2.6% from 1-7 May. So, should investors sell all their stocks in May and take a break from the stock market? Not at all, in my opinion.

1 Simple Number to Understand 3 Important Areas of Thai Beverage
Thai Beverage Public Company Limited (SGX: Y92) is a food and beverage company operating in four different segments, namely, Spirits, Beer, Food, and Non-Alcoholic Beverages. In this article, I want to dig deeper into Thai Beverage’s return on equity, or ROE. The choice of ROE Why ROE? That’s because the financial metric gives investors important insight into a company’s ability to generate a profit using shareholders’ capital. An ROE of 20% means that a company generates $0.20 in profit for every dollar of shareholders’ capital invested. In general, the higher the ROE, the more profitable a company is. A high ROE can also be a sign that a company has a high-quality business. That being said, it’s worth noting that the use of high leverage – which increases the financial ris
