How to Use the P/E Ratio to Value a Company
The price-to-earnings multiple, or P/E ratio, is a common valuation metric used by investors. In short, this is the ratio between the price per share and the earnings per share of a company. For instance, a company with earnings per share of S$1 and a share price of $10 has a P/E of 10. Investors use the P/E ratio to gauge whether a company is cheap or expensive, but companies often trade at a wide range of P/Es. There is no one-size-fits-all rule that applies to the whole universe of stocks. This is because there are a multitude of other factors besides a company’s earnings that affect its valuation. For instance, a company in a defensive industry or a fast-growing company should command a higher P/E. So, how can investors tell if a company’s current P/E multiple is cheap or expensive

We Should “Buy and Monitor” Our Investments
It’s become almost a cliche when investors discuss a “buy and hold” strategy. The term is probably overused, and although it makes sense intuitively, I think that it does not fully encapsulate how complex investing is. Also, it under-estimates how much investors need to be involved in the active management of their portfolios, as a buy-and-hold strategy itself implies passivity to the point of being slothful. I want to introduce a new phrase called “buy and monitor,” which I use often with my investing peers. This describes a more active, hands-on approach that I feel is better suited to the current business environment, and it also helps us watch out for risks that might arise in our holdings. “Buy and hold” is dead? Some investors may think the c

3 Reasons Why I Bought Sasseur Real Estate Investment Trust – And Why You Should Too
Since its listing in March 2018, Sasseur Real Estate Investment Trust (SGX:CRPU) has managed to consistently surprise investors with higher-than-forecasted rental income and distribution per unit. In its last reporting quarter ended 31 December 2018, the REIT, which owns four outlet malls in China, declared a DPU that was an eye-catching 28.1% higher than it had initially forecasted in its IPO prospectus. Overall, its full-year DPU (from March 2018 to December 2018) was also 12.6% higher than forecasted. I am an investor in Sasseur REIT, and here are three key reasons I believe it will become a market-beating investment over the next few years.

Singapore Airlines (SIA) Retail Bond 2019: 10 Things You Need To Know Before Investing
The bond market is warming up in Singapore. Over the past few months, we have seen bonds like the Temasek 2.70% T2023-S$ Bond as well as the 4.35% Astrea IV Bond by Azalea Asset Management. Bonds are generally considered to be less volatile compared to stocks, but this does not mean that they necessarily come with low or no risk.

Why I am going to avoid the upcoming SIA 5 Year 3.03% Retail Bond
Singapore Airlines is proposing to offer S$500 million of five-year fixed-rate bonds to both institutional and retail investors with a chance of it being upsized to $750 million if the response is overwhelming. SIA’s S$500m 5-year bonds will pay 3.03% interest and mature in 2024. Below are my own personal opinions on the issue but the short summary is that I am not enthusiastic about the offering. There are several main points that underpin it:   Airline industry is fiercely competitive, and it is not going to get any easier anytime soon The airline industry is notoriously competitive. It is notoriously capital intensive and low margin. As Richard Branson put it best – “If you want to be a millionaire, start with a billion dollars and launch a new airline.”. Just several

Singapore Airlines SIA issues a Safe 5 Year 3.03% Retail Bond – My Take
Seems the prediction is shaping up really well.  After Astrea IV 10 year 4.35% and Temasek 5 year 2.70% bonds, SIA followed their cue to release a retail tranche for their just announced bond issue.  SIA will be releasing $500 mil worth of bonds, with the public being allocated $300 mil out of this and the rest going to institutional investors. Should the bond be oversubscribed, they will expand it up to $750 mil. The minimum denomination is $1,000 which makes it affordable for most people. And you can apply it at your ATM or through internet banking like an initial public offering (IPO) A low denomination will also allow you the retail investor to diversify their bond allocation.  The bond pays a coupon of 3.03% semi annually.  At the end of 5 years, you get back your

The Week in Numbers: MPs Vote To Delay Brexit
Its been a busy week for members of parliament in Britain, with Brexit votes every night for three consecutive days. While these votes are not politically binding, they are hard for Theresa May to ignore. On Tuesday, MPs rejected her Brexit plan, and voted to rule out a no-deal Brexit in all circumstances the next day. And on Thursday they voted for May to delay Brexit. Meanwhile, the vote to leave the EU in June 2016 has already cost the UK about €800 million per week. According to Lloyds Banking Group, optimism among companies is at a seven-year low and businesses have recorded the longest continuous decline in investments in a decade. The pound is also down more than 10% since Britain voted to leave the EU, increasing the cost of imported goods and eroding purchasing power for consume

Regional Stocks Snap Losing Streak
Despite persistent unfavorable news from around the world, major equities benchmarks ended their downward slides and moved slightly higher. Nonfarm payrolls report from the US revealed that only 20,000 jobs were added in February 2019, signaling the slowest pace for job growth in the last 18 months. Dow Jones Industrial Average slipped 0.8 percent ending at 25,709.94 over the last two weeks. In China, the nation concluded its annual “Two Sessions” last week with the Chinese government setting its economic growth target this year lower to between 6 percent and 6.5 percent. Nevertheless, the government planned to launch new tax cuts and spending totaling 2 trillion yuan to support businesses and stimulate the economy.

Shopback Is My Main Source For Savings Rebates Mechanism
Many people distinguish their spending power and savings ability and treat them as two totally different functions. This is especially evident for the middle income group who thinks they must be separated because they serve for different purpose. However, the key to a rich mentality is always about having the two important equation balanced out well. While it is important that that we strive to improve our savings rate, there are also ways that we can be smart about our day to day spending as well. Gone are the days where you scroll newspapers to look for coupon clips in order to get item rebates.  These days, there are many merchants coming up with new ideas and better offers to entice shoppers to sign up with them to get rebates. One of them is Shopback, a mer

SIA Engineering Company Ltd (SGX: S59), or SIAEC, specialises in aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) services for over 80 international airlines around the world. It’s also a subsidiaries of Singapore Airlines Ltd. (SGX: C6L). At their current price of S$2.36 (at the time of writing), SIA Engineering’s shares are down by 30% from their 52-week high of S$3.35. Is SIA Engineering cheap now? If shares are cheap, it might be a good opportunity for investors. There is no easy answer, but we can get some insight by comparing SIA Engineering’s current valuation with the market’s valuation.

SIAEC share price in bloodbath with Temasek Holdings
The sky is falling for SIA Engineering Company as SIAEC share price crashed to $2.21, a 10-year low on 26 December 2018. The correction of SIAEC share price could be due to market anticipation of a set of poor third quarter FY2018/19 results. Following the release of the results, SIAEC share price recovered to the $2.50 bandwidth but started falling again in early 2019. On the basis of the recent volatility, I smell blood for SIAEC share price and investors should brace themselves for a roller-coaster ride. Investing in SIAEC is not fun. If investors look back, SIAEC share price has suffered a horrendous bloodbath, falling from $5.00 in 2013 to the current $2.40. The drop of 50% in SIAEC share price within 6 years make this counter an awful falling star. Should investors hang on for their

The Week Ahead: Singtel, SIA and ComfortDelGro
It’s a big week for Singapore’s transportation sector with numbers from a port operator, an airport services outfit and a cab firm. Hutchison Port Holdings (SGX: NS8U) posted a slump in third-quarter profits in October. Revenue fell nearly 7% because of weaker within Asia. The Hong Kong-based port operator said it will continue to focus on improving costs given the soft global trade outlook. Airport services company, SATS (SGX: S58), reported a 9% drop in second-quarter earnings because of the absence of a one-time gain a year ago. But SATS said revenues was 4.2% higher, with gateway services up 6.3% and food solutions up 2.5%. ComfortDelGro (SGX:C52) said third-quarter profits were down 2%.

13 things to know about ComfortDelGro before you invest
It has been a rough few years for ComfortDelGro Corporation Limited (CDG). Its stock price fell to S$2.00 in December 2017, down from its peak of S$3.20 in June 2015. This coincided with rising competition from ride-hailing providers, Uber and Grab, which caused a 20% reduction in taxi fleet size for both Comfort and CityCab from 2015 to 2017. Source: Google Finance In March 2018, Grab took over the entire Southeast Asian operations of Uber. There were mixed views on CDG with regards to Uber’s exit from the Singapore market. But it’s been evident that CDG has been a benefactor as it curbed the reduction of its taxi fleet and saw its stock price rebound from its low in 2017. So is the worst over for CDG?

SingSaver is an affiliate partner of We receive a share of revenue from your sign-ups. When it comes to earning more miles and cashbacks on credit cards, one of the most common “hacks” is volunteering to pay for shared expenses, such as restaurant meals, movie tickets or grab rides first, and then collecting the cash from friends afterwards. The logic is sound – I pay first, on a large bill that will earn more even more miles or cashback than my actual expenditure, then get my friends to repay what they owe me in cash.
