As A Contrarian, You Will Always Walk Alone
A lot of investors have posted good results for last year. However, if you were like me and had been worrying that the stock market could crash in 2017, a year that ends with 7, you would have missed out on a stock market rally in which the STI rose by 18% in 2017. When everybody else is posting good results online, it does feel depressing occasionally.I was not totally out of the market last year. Having participated in the stock market for 32 years, I will never be totally out of the market, even though I respect the folklore that the market would experience a crash whenever the year ends with 7. I took a defensive stance, ensuring that I had around 45% to 50% cash to deploy in the event that a crash were to materialise. As I sold stocks that were rising, I continued to invest in stocks

The Singapore Market This Week: Venture Corporation Ltd Leads the Pack Higher
The Singapore stock market, as represented by the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI), ended the week at 3,550 points, inching up 0.8% from last Friday. Of the 30 index components, 19 made gains. Venture Corporation Ltd (SGX: V03) was the largest winner, with its shares up 7.3% to S$24.30. On Thursday, the contract manufacturer announced that it has entered into an agreement with S&S (Barber) to purchase a freehold property in California, United States, for US$29.4 million. Venture believes that the property will strengthen its presence and image in the country. The proposed acquisition will be fully paid for through internal resources. As of 30 September 2017, Venture had S$599.6 million in cash and equivalents, and zero debt. So, the property purchase should not be an issue for the com

The Week Ahead: Keppel Corporation On Tap
Singapore earnings season moves into second gear with Keppel Corporation (SGX: BN4) stepping into the spotlight. The industrial conglomerate appears to have weathered the downturn in the oil and gas sector. In October Keppel Corp said third-quarter profits jumped 30%, thanks to strong contributions from property, power and asset management. The offshore and marine sector was still smarting, though. CapitaLand Mall Trust (SGX: C38U) will be the first of two CapitaLand (SGX: C31) real estate investment trusts to post quarterly earnings. The owner of 16 shopping malls delivered a distribution of 2.78 cents for the third quarter, which was unchanged from a year ago. On the upside, footfall was up, as was occupancy rate. But on the downside, gross revenues slipped 0.2%. Results were better at

Singapore MAS puts more scrutiny on bank loans for property development A spate of aggressive land deals by developers last year has prompted the Singapore central bank to take a closer look at the way banks are financing development projects. The Business Times understands that the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) is collecting more data from banks through a new survey sent out to them last month. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Some of the information sought by the MAS includes the size of banks’ exposures and details of the loan facilities granted for each project such as the key covenants and loan-to-value (LTV) ratios, sources say.

Here’s How Much You Would Have Today If You Invested $1,000 Into These 10 Popular Singapore Stocks 10 Years Ago
Many say the Singapore stock market is slow, lacklustre and even “dead”. However, for those who continue to put faith in stock listed here, can still find good value. 10 years ago, the Singapore stock market was flourishing, and it was right before the global financial crisis, that wiped out nearly 55% of the value of Singapore’s 30 largest stocks listed on the Straits Times Index, hit. Today, the STI has clawed back nearly 45% of those losses. This means that we’ve not yet recovered to the highs of 2007’s stock market. Nevertheless, we look at how a $1,000 investment in 10 popular stocks on the Singapore Exchange (SGX) 10 years ago would look like today. We also assume reinvestment of any dividends at the start of the following year to achieve compounded returns. #1 CapitaLand M

Tenants’ tough fight against their Landlords
The landscape for retail has changed dramatically these few years as online e-commerce have become more accessible, due to the improvement in the retail supply chain and processes of online retailers. Thus, more and more consumers are purchasing what they need online. This means that retailers need less space. For retailers that are primarily brick and mortar, they face a daunting prospect of having too short a time to ramp up their e-commerce strategy to compete. Many retailers face the prospect of closing down, and for the anchor tenants, they are factoring E-Commerce into their overall strategy and thus need a smaller retail space. All these spells trouble for the retail REITs. In Singapore, the retail REITs Suntec, SPH, Starhill Global REIT, Capitaland Mall, Frasers Centerpoint Trust a

Look Beyond Singapore If You Want To Make Money
I remember once sitting down to a plate of Char Kway Teow at a restaurant operated by Millennium & Copthorne Hotels. There’s nothing too remarkable about that, you might think…. …But the hotel was the Millennium Tara, which was located just a few steps away from Kensington High Street in the heart of central London. The rice noodles were as authentic as you would find at any Singapore hawker stall – lots of “wok hei”. That was not my only encounter with a Singapore-run business abroad. Chinese restaurant Min Jiang, which is owned by Singapore’s Goodwood Group of Hotels, offers fine dining in London with an unparalleled bird’s-eye view of Hyde Park. I also recall enjoying a sumptuous breakfast of kaya toast and two silky half-boiled eggs with a splash of dark soy sauce

The 3 Best Performing REITs In 2017
The Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) started 2017 at 2,881 points and ended the year 18.1% higher at 3,403. Yet, this healthy return does not imply that all types of stocks in the local market did well. Fortunately for investors who like real estate investment trusts, 2017 was a year in which REITs had a respectable performance; in the 12 months ended 8 January 2018, REITs in Singapore’s market had produced a return of around 18%. But this being said, not every REIT had generated double-digit returns in the past year. This article is the first in a short series which will look at the best and worst performing REITs in 2017. It will focus on three REITs that produced a good return in the year. The first one on the list is Mapletree Greater China Commercial Trust (SGX: RW0U), a REIT tha

Manulife US REIT review
As part of potentially investing in Manulife US REIT, I am writing a set of posts to determine whether this could be an addition to my stock portfolio. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); In the spirit of trying to be objective (though I already have some bias toward buying the stock), I am going to try to approach this investment decision to buy Manulife US REIT with a blank slate. I will try to let the REIT speak for itself, and at the end of the day determine if it’s worth the addition.

7 Things Investors Should Know About How Different Sectors Performed In The Stock Market Over The Past Year
The Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) started 2017 at 2,881 points and ended the year 18.1% higher at 3,403. Yet, this healthy return does not imply that all types of stocks in the local market did well. In this article, I want to share some information about how different sectors (as defined by the Global Industry Classification Standard, or GICS) had performed over the past year, based on data published by stock exchange operator Singapore Exchange. Here they are: 1. In the 12 months ended 8 January 2018,  the two best performing sectors in our local stock market were Materials and Information Technology. The former was up by 110%, whilst the latter was up by 103%. 2. For the same period in the first point, the two worst performing sectors were Energy and Telecommunication Services.

These 6 Blue Chips Beat The Straits Times Index In 2017
The Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) started 2017 at 2,881 points and ended the year 18.1% higher at 3,403. Yet, this healthy return does not imply that all 30 companies within the Straits Times Index had similar returns. In fact, there were some big losers, some flat stocks, and some huge winners within the group of the 30 blue chip stocks. This article is the third in a series that will look at the outperformers and laggards among the Straits Times Index’s constituents. The first article discussed three blue chips that outperformed the index in 2017, while the second article looked at two blue chips with returns that lagged the market significantly. In here, I will focus on three other blue chips that did well in 2017 when compared to the Straits Times Index. [Editor’s note: The fo

Time To Take Profit On Which Retail REITs?
Singapore’s retail real estate investment trusts (REITs) are in an unenviable position. Retail REITs might be enjoying a cyclical recovery from a rebound in tourism and a more constructive economic landscape, but analysts from Maybank Kim Eng believes that these are not enough to overcome the headwinds. Rising rates, peak new supply in 2018 and fair valuations will be the first challenge for retail REITs in 2018. Following that, structural challenges from ecommerce continue to erode sales of retailers. Sales leakages from Singaporeans increasingly spending overseas also remain a structural concern. Be Highly Selective For Retail REITs For those who are looking to invest in the retail REIT sector, investors should be highly selective given the structural challenges. According to Maybank K

The Best Singapore Short Term Savings Account for 2018

So my setup for last year was a mixture of: OCBC 360 Hurdle Account UOB One Hurdle Account Singapore Savings Bonds Lion Global Money Market One year has passed and there are some changes. However, most of the plans available to you are still out there. But some of the plans on floating interest rates might start to look attractive. My criteria for short term savings account is still the same: Not to lose money Have liquidity not longer than 1 month Better than fixed deposit returns Easy to understand Not overly complex The current fixed deposit rates for 12 month duration varies from 0.25% to 0.35%.

Singapore Big property deals surge to 10-year high Sales of big-ticket property transactions of S$10 million and above in 2017 surged to their highest level in a decade. This, however, was short of the record achieved in 2007, show latest figures from Savills Singapore and CBRE released separately to The Business Times. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); According to Savills Singapore’s preliminary tally as at Dec 27, investment sales of property reached S$35.64 billion, up 57.3 per cent from the S$22.66 billion in 2016. This was the best since the record S$41.1 billion during the 2007 property boom. Based on JLL’s figures, the surge in 2017 was supported by a strong revival in collective sales to S$8.6 billion from just over S$1 billion in 2016. Better

Portfolio update Dec 2017 [DD]
Just got started recently helping some loved ones to invest and keep track of their portfolio. With more of my experience in REITs, I decided that I should help one of them buy some. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Here’s the maiden post and holdings. Lippo Mall REIT Capitaland Retail China Trust SPH REIT Present portfolio IRR of 6.2%. Return multiples between 0.97 and 1.03 for the different counters. Portfolio return multiple averages out to 1.0. Portfolio dividend yield is 6.4% which is within my comfortable range of 6 to 7%. I might consider stretching to buy REITs which are 5-ish or 7-ish% yield, but need to be comfortable with the story behind it. Rationale for choosing Lippo Mall REIT is its presently high dividend yield of 8.2% as of 30 Sept 2017.

Riskiest REITs based on their beta
The Singapore stock exchange has many REITs to choose from and investors usually base their buying decision on dividend yields. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); But how many have stopped to think of the risk of a REIT? What is risk? By risk, I mean how much the price of a REIT fluctuates. I.e. its volatility In the finance world, the term beta is used to measure how volatile a stock is. In this regard, volatility is synonymous with risk. Higher volatility = higher risk. The market used in this context is the STI index. In other contexts, it can be used to mean the general market such as the S&P500 or Dow Jones. A beta of 1 indicates that a stock, or REIT’s price moves lockstep with the market. A beat of less than 1 means that the REIT is less volatile th
