1 Simple Number To Understand 3 Important Areas Of City Developments Limited
City Developments Limited (SGX: C09), or CDL for short, is a real estate company. Its segments include property development, hotel operations, rental properties and others. In this article, I want to dig deep into City Developments’ return on equity, or ROE. The choice of ROE Why ROE, some of you might be asking? That’s because the financial metric gives investors important insights on a company’s ability to generate a profit using the shareholders’ capital it has. A 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 leve

What To Look Out For In The Stock Market In 2019
In today’s connected markets, macro events in one market can have rippling impact on the world. For example, the trade war spat between the two largest economies in the world has created uncertainty over global economic growth in 2019. The stock market was starting to find its footing until the unthinkable trade war took place. According to CIMB, here are some things investors should be looking out for in the market that would determine the market outlook in 2019. Trade War Is Here To Stay For investors who are looking for a cease fire to the trade war to re-lift market spirits, you might have to wait further. CIMB notes that the trade war spatter is likely to continue in 2019 and is not going to cease fire anytime soon (despite recent optimism of a deal). While it is clear that business

City Development - Is There Value In This Company At $8.08?
The revised cooling measures implemented in the middle of 2018 has finally pushed Q418 sales to a dip since Q217. It was only slightly down by 0.1% quarter on quarter and most of the decline was mainly due to landed sales so in all essence the demand for private property is still pretty buoyant.With the introduction of the new cooling measures, which coincides along with the increase in tandem in interest rates, it brings the share price of City Development down from the 52 week high of $13.6 to the last closing price of $8.08.That is a very sharp decline and if you are an investor who buys at the peak and it can get very painful to see your portfolio colored in a patriotic sea of red. But is there value now in the company after such a steep decline?

City Developments repurchased $21.4 million in shares in two months… is it worth a look now?
In my last article, I shared that share buybacks are a great way for companies to (indirectly) return money to shareholders, and boost shareholder value. Share buybacks could also be a signal that the management thinks the company’s shares are undervalued. Knowing this, investors usually take heed when a company repurchases a large number of shares over a short period of time.

Can City Developments Limited CDL share price shake the blues?
Investors of City Developments Limited (CDL) can be forgiven for punching the wall. From a high of $13.50 in March 2018, CDL share price collapsed to the current dismal level of $8.23. Out of nowhere, CDL share price suffered a devastating train wreck, causing many investors to lose their pants. What has gone wrong with this leading light of SGX? As one of the biggest real estate developers in Singapore, CDL share price has withstood the test of time and has weathered numerous property cycles through the decades. This time, I am absolutely convinced it will be no different. With market capitalization of $7.6 billion, CDL is certainly one of the largest components among the prestigious Straits Times Index (STI). This means that CDL share price is extremely prone to fluctuations because sho

How To Outrun A Bear
It was not long after Diwali was over when Singapore started getting ready for the next major festive event – Christmas. I sometimes wonder why we can’t celebrate Diwali just that little bit longer. Diwali, or the Festival of Light, for me is a reminder of the victory of light over darkness. It’s about the triumph of knowledge over ignorance. It is also about appreciating and understanding what is going on around us. What’s volatility? It was around the time of Diwali when I was asked by the morning crew on MoneyFM why Genting Singapore (SGX: G13), City Developments (SGX: C09) and Venture Corp (SGX: V03) were the three worst performers in the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) in October.

The Art of the Good Life #50 : Sturgeon's Law
Ted Sturgeon was a sci-fi author who claims that "90% of everything is crap" and this chapter proposes that the same applies for the stock market. This is useful when you decide what kind of media to indulge in. 90% of all fiction is crap. 90% of all Netflix shows are crap. In a moment of self-reflection, perhaps 90% of investment training is crap so I need to constantly improve my training slides.While preparing stock screens for this weekend's class to demonstrate this concept, I wanted to see how many stocks fall into this category in SGX :a) Cannot be a ADR, GDR, China Stock or a REIT.b) Cannot have a market capitalisation below $50M. c) Must have revenue above 150% of the average of the remaining counters after step (b).d) Must have an operating cash flow above the average o

Which Blue-Chip Property Developer Is The Cheapest Now?
Property stocks took a beating in July when the Singapore government implemented additional property cooling measures. Since then, private condominium prices have declined for two straight months, and analysts expect further corrections in the months ahead. That said, I still believe the long-term prospects of property in Singapore remains sound. The Monetary Authority of Singapore has said that it wants property prices to rise reasonably and in tandem with wage increases. As such, over the much longer time frame, property prices should increase as wages rise in Singapore. With property stocks trading some way off their peak, now may be a good time to look for bargains. Here’s a quick look at how the three blue-chip property stocks are valued now.

2 Short-Term Strategies To Tactfully Adjust Your Investment Portfolio
The STI fell 7.3 percent in the month of October as trade war worries, rising interest rates and correction in the US stock market weighed on the local market. The underperformance was underlined by weaker performance from property and O&G stocks after new property measures were announced and amidst the oil price correction. DBS: STI To End Year On A Weaker Note Given the uncertainty over impact of the US-China trade war and rising interest rates environment, DBS foresees STI to end on a weaker note at the end of the year. DBS lowered its target for STI from 3,550 to 3,200. In particular, DBS is concerned that bank stocks could be a potential drag for the STI. However, the recent fall in market has created more attractive valuation levels. Going forward, DBS recommends investors to ado

How Did City Developments Limited Fare In Its Latest Quarter Amid New Property Cooling Measures?
Property stocks have certainly taken a hit in recent months. The Singapore government’s sudden announcement of additional property cooling measures caused related stocks to tumble in July. City Developments Limited (SGX: C09), one of the three property developers in the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) has been one of the hardest hit with prices down more than 26% year-to-date. Last week, CDL released its earnings results for the third quarter of 2018. Here are the important points to take note of. The key numbers 1. Revenue for the quarter was up 17.7% to S$1.0 billion. Gross profit grew 13% to S$485.7 million. 2. Profit before tax was up 4.6% to S$242.5 million, with profit attributable to owners 10.4% higher at S$161.8 million. 3.

Why Property Counters Are Declining?
After the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) released the final 3Q18 private property index data on 26 October 2018, all eyes are on the stock price performance of several property counters, including the bulge bracket names like CapitaLand, City Developments (CityDev), and UOL Group (UOL). For the 3Q18, the PPI showed a 0.5 percent rise quarter-on-quarter (QoQ), one of the slowest paces of rise this year. The index had a 3.9 per cent rise in 1Q18, and a 3.4 percent rise in 2Q18. Final new home sales figures showed 3,012 private residential units sold in the third quarter, compared to 2,366 in 2Q18. The increase in new sales could be attributed to last minute panic buying before the implementation of the new cooling measures. Source: URA However, despite that, the overall picture for rea

What Investors Should Know About Share Buybacks by Singapore-Listed Companies in October 2018
Companies which buyback their shares could signal to the market that their shares are undervalued. Last month, 29 companies repurchased 30.8 million shares or units for a total amount of S$59.9 million, according to a report released by the Singapore Exchange Limited (SGX: S68) recently. The October buyback was 36% down from September’s buyback of S$94 million. In October, some companies were on blackout periods, which means that they cannot conduct share repurchases ahead of their earnings release. The top six companies with the largest share buyback amount in October 2018 were DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05), Keppel REIT (SGX: K71U), City Developments Limited (SGX: C09), SATS Ltd (SGX: S58), Singapore Press Holdings Limited (SGX: T39), and Singapore Exchange.

4 Stocks This Week (Share Buybacks)[2 November 2018] DBS; Keppel REIT; CDL; SATS
October has been a really topsy-turvy month for US equities, which had spill over effects around the world, including the Singapore market. The STI declined from 3257.1 to 3018.8 in October, which represents a 7.3% dip. During market downturns, it is common for companies to take advantage of the dip in prices to execute share buyback mandates. Thus, it is not surprising to see that in October, 29 SGX-listed companies made share buybacks for a total consideration of $59.9 million. October’s buyback activity brought the total share buyback consideration in 2018 to S$1.34 billion. This is more than 3 times the volume compared to whole of 2017. For this week’s episode of 4 Stocks This Week, we’ll look at the 4 companies with the largest share buyback considerations for October – namely
