Here’s Why I Stopped Volunteering My Credit Card To Settle The Bill First (Especially When Dining Out With Friends)
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. What happens in reality is a completely different thing. Read Also: Online Shopping: What Happens When You Pay In Foreign Currencies Using Your Singapore Credit Card While I initially agreed with this “hack”, I try to avoid paying first at all cost these days. Here are four reasons why I think you may also want to stop making use of this “hack”.

What is IFRS 16 and why is it so important? [Case study – Singapore Airlines]
This is a slightly technical post but highly relevant if you for certain types of businesses where leasing is prevalent. Come 2019, new accounting standards (specifically IFRS 16) will come into effect which will drive up the leverage ratios of businesses which have significant leases liabilities. The new leases standard – IFRS 16 – will require companies to bring most leases on-balance sheet from 2019. Explaining it in layman terms Let us think about this in terms of you buying a car. The normal route to buying a car would be for you to take a car loan. You would take ownership of the asset in your name, and the corresponding debt to pay for it too. The alternative way to do it is to lease it. A lease is simply a contractual arrangement that allows the lessee (user) to pay the lessor

Why All Singaporeans (Even Cashback Lovers) Should Apply For At Least One Air Miles Card
SingSaver is an affiliate partner of By now, most of you should already know that it makes financial sense to be using a credit card over cash. As long as you have financial discipline (i.e. pay your bills on time, don’t overspend), not using your credit card when you can is just plain silly. Using your credit card allows you can enjoy discounts, promotions, cashback and of course, earn you air miles. In Singapore, the two main camps that people find themselves on when it comes to card benefits are miles and cashback. We wrote about this previously and explained why a miles card would usually deliver better “cash spent to benefit received” value. We are not saying that there is no place in your wallet for a cashback card, or even multiple cashback cards.

SI Research: SIA Engineering Company – A Once-In-Ten-Year Opportunity
SIA Engineering Company’s (SIAEC) share price hit its 10-year low closing at $2.28 on 21 December 2018, last seen only during the sub-prime crisis period in May 2009.

Disaster for SIA share price
As the year-end festive season approaches, investors of Singapore Airlines (SIA) have little to cheer about as SIA share price plunged to epic low of $9.17 on 30 October 2018. The last times that SIA share price was traded at such abysmal level were during the 2001’s terrorist attacks in United States and 2003’s SARS outbreak. Both events were black swan events that affected the industry immensely and changed the aviation landscape forever. But hey we are not having any crisis now, aren’t we? As one of the major components among the prestigious Straits Times Index (STI), SIA is one of the biggest blue chips in the stock market. But investing in this leading light of SGX is not so straightforward as challenging operating environment and industry shifts make this stock highly unpredict

These 3 Companies Are Paying Dividends This Week

Singapore Airlines Ltd’s Latest Quarterly Earnings: Fuel Costs A Major Drain On Profits
Singapore Airlines Ltd (SGX: C6L) reported a downbeat set of earnings yesterday for its second quarter and its first half of the fiscal year ending 31 March 2019 (2018/2019). Here are eight key highlights from its earnings release:- 1. Revenue for its first half of 2018/2019 increased by 2.5% from S$7.7 billion to S$7.9 billion, contributed by both growth in passenger flown revenue (up 5.8% year on year) as well as cargo flown revenue (up 7.4% year on year).

Phillip Fisher’s Stock Investing Checklist: Part 3
Many investors have heard of Warren Buffett, but perhaps less know is Phillip Fisher, and his rules on investing in the stock market. Fisher is one of the investment greats with a stellar track record of investing in well-managed, high-quality growth stocks for the long-term. In fact, Fisher is one of Buffett’s investing mentors. Fisher’s most famous investment was that of Motorola – he bought the stock in 1955 and did not sell it for the remainder of his life (he passed away in 2004). In his book Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits, Fisher shared a checklist of 15 characteristics he looked out for when it comes to buying growth stocks.

3 Blue Chips To Accumulate Amidst Market Sell Down

For long term investors, DBS recommends accumulating on strong blue-chip names with significant upside, based on their current share price.

DBS notes that SIA’s 1Q is seasonally weak.

These 3 Blue-Chips’ Share Prices Have Fallen By More Than 20% From Their 52-Week Highs
Warren Buffett once said that as an investor, it is important to be “fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.” The idea is simple. When everyone is buying shares in a company, it’s unlikely that the company’s shares will be a good bargain. On the other hand, when others are shying away from the shares of a company, we might be able to pick some up at a good price. How can we tell if investors are staying away from a company’s shares? By seeing if it has fallen hard in recent times. In this spirit, here are three blue-chip shares with prices that have declined significantly from their respective highs over the past year: Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited (SGX: O39), Singapore Airlines Ltd  (SGX: C6L), and Keppel Corporation Limited  (SGX: BN4).

Is It Ever Worth Buying Stuff On The In-Flight Catalogue?
If you’ve ever flown on a commercial airplane before, chances are you’ve seen an in-flight catalogue under your seat pocket. You may have noticed flight attendants pushing carts filled with merchandise down the plane’s narrow aisles, who are only interrupted by customers who want to make a purchase. According to a 2016 report by m1nd-set Generation, a Swiss-based airline research agency, while duty free sales are projected to double by 2025, inflight sales are expected to fall 1.5% per annum. In recent years, three major American airlines including United Airlines, Delta Airlines and American Airlines have abandoned inflight shopping on the back of weak inflight sales.
