StarHub share price trashed to 14-year low
StarHub CEO, Peter Kaliaropoulos must be feeling the heat again. On 18 February 2019, StarHub share price plunged to a 14-year low of $1.61. The last time that StarHub share price was trading at such disgraceful level was in 2005. The trigger for the massive sell-offs was obviously the dismal Q4FY2018. Following the announcement, investors wasted no time in punishing this counter, sending StarHub share price to rock bottom. It seems that honeymoon period is over for the StarHub CEO. Following his appointment on 9 July 2018, StarHub share price enjoyed a brief respite and even managed to halt its horrendous slump. Then the announcement of Keppel and SPH buy-over of M1 shares had led to a resurgent StarHub share price in September 2018. Investors had speculated that a potential privatizatio

4 Stocks This Week [15 Feb 2019] (Large Movements) ThaiBev; StarHub, Silverlake Axis; RHT Health Trust
This week saw the conclusion of earnings reporting for many Singapore listed firms, and the result was a sea of red among SGX counters, with 212 losers versus 124 gainers. Most firms failed to meet financial projections and there weren’t enough clear future prospects to buffer the loss in confidence among investors. For this week’s 4 Stocks This Week column, we look at 4 counters with some of the largest price movements. Thai Beverage Public Company Limited (SGX: Y92) One of the companies that outperformed expectations was ThaiBev, one of the largest food and beverage companies in Southeast Asia.

Execution, Position Sizing and Financially Irresponsible Stock Positions
You give some people whose job is to invest money, and by a lot of standards they are good at it.  Shockingly only 49% of their picks made money. Some of them was successful only 30% of the time.  At the end of these, almost non of them lost money. They still made a lot of money out of it.  I think this was the part of the article that caught my attention.  The main reason is that it is something that is not often explain in a book, or by course trainers, or in video how to navigate this problem.  A lot of the stocks that you come across will look like they are the best picks.  Some of these, you didn’t do the prospecting yourself.

A Good Start After Lunar New Year Break
US stocks moved higher on persisting optimism around the trade talk, after President Trump said that he would allow for flexibility to delay the trade-deal deadline if both sides are making sufficient progress. Furthermore, Trump indicated that he would still like to meet with Chinese leader Xi Jinping soon in an effort to put an end to the trade war. Meanwhile, Trump reassured market participants that a second government shutdown was unlikely even though he was unhappy with the tentative agreement. Over the last three weeks, Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 3.5 percent closing at 25,439.39. Correspondingly, China equities surged on hopes that the trade talk can achieve breakthrough, after the market re-opened from a one-week long Lunar New Year holiday. Overall Shanghai Composite Index

The Malaysia Dispatch: From One Island To Another
I have arrived in my hometown, Penang island. I can tell. As I exit the plane, I can feel the gust of hot air on my face. Yes, I may have flown from one island to another, but the weather in my hometown feels a little warmer compared to Singapore. The Penang airport is a lot smaller compared to Changi Airport, handling less than a tenth of what the Singapore airport does. But location matters more than size today. And that’s because I have arrived home.   My Undivided Attention I have spent half of my life in Penang and the other half in Singapore. The first difference you’ll notice in Penang is the language. My hometown’s main dialect is a local variant of Hokkien which is different from Singapore’s own Hokkien. But you can quickly catch on to the local lingo. There are e

Singapore Telecommunications Limited’s Underlying Net Profit Plunged 28.4%
Yesterday, Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SGX: Z74), or Singtel, released its 2019 third-quarter earnings update. The earnings update highlights ten things we think are important for investors to note: Sales revenue was up 0.9% year on year to S$4.6 billion. However, EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortisation) for the quarter fell 10.6% year on year to S$1.2 billion. EBITDA margin was down from 29.0% from the corresponding period last year to 25.7%. Pre-tax profits from Singtel’s associates was down 32.9% year on year to S$371 million.

StarHub Ltd’s 2018 Earnings: Another Disappointing Year
Yesterday, StarHub Ltd (SGX: CC3) announced its earnings results for the full year ended 31 December 2018. StarHub is Singapore’s second largest telecommunications company with five business segments – Mobile, Pay TV, Broadband, Enterprise Fixed and Sales of Equipment. Here are the quick takeaways from StarHub’s 2018 financial results: 1. Total revenue for 2018 fell 2% year-on-year to S$2.36 billion. All businesses fared poorly, except for Enterprise Fixed, whose revenue grew 16% to S$510.8 million. 2. Mobile revenue came in at S$824.5 million, down 8.1%. This was due to lower IDD (international direct dialling), voice and excess data usage revenues, and a higher mix of SIM-only plans. 3. Pay TV revenue tumbled 11.9% to S$311.3 million on the back of lower subscriber numbers. On aver

Searching For A Fellow Value Investor? Be Patient
The title of this article may seem weird, but it is something which has been bugging me for a few years now. So, I thought I would articulate the issue here for others to understand it better. In investing, no man is an island and everyone would seek social proof and validation to some extent. Very few investors are able to completely shut the world out and stay solitary – humans generally require a certain level of social interaction and networking to function normally. Moreover, one way to obtain good investment ideas and suggestions is to talk to other knowledgeable and skilled investors. However, I realized over time that the search for other investors can be arduous and time-consuming, and that the key is to be patient. A kindred spirit It took me some time to be able to find a

2 Companies to Watch This Week (StarHub Ltd and ComfortDelGro Corporation Ltd)
This week, a host of companies will be giving updates on their results for the final quarter of 2018. Two companies in particular are in the spotlight:StarHub Ltd (SGX: CC3) and ComfortDelGro Corporation Ltd (SGX: C52). Here’s what investors should be looking out for when they release their results later this week. Pay TV on the decline StarHub Ltd is Singapore’s second largest telecommunications company. Its business can be divided into five main business segments: mobile, pay TV, broadband, enterprise fixed, and equipment sales. In the past year, Starhub’s share price has fallen nearly 40% from its high of S$2.99 in 2018 due to disruptive competition from online streaming and a fourth telco company making its way into Singapore.

Investors Should Not Water Their Weeds And Pull Out Their Flowers
Much of what I have observed with regards to investor behaviour over time tells me that there are some bad practices and habits which seem to persist, despite investors knowing better. It is similar to smoking or binge drinking – everyone knows that they are bad activities and should be avoided, but people can’t help succumbing to them. One particularly rampant practice I have witnessed of investors is that they take care of their weeds (their investments that have done poorly) while pulling out their flowers (selling their investments in companies that are performing well). Let’s delve a bit deeper into this practice to understand the rationale behind it, and what can be done to alter such damaging behaviour. Watering the weeds Taking care of an investment portfolio is a

The Week in Numbers: Factory Activity in Asia Slows
Factory activity shrank across Asia in January. China’s official Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) was 49.5 in January and 49.4 in December. A reading below 50 indicates contraction on a monthly basis. Japan’s factory activity was the slowest in 29 months, with weakening exports and output. Much of the decline across Asia has been due to weakening China economy and the ongoing trade war. A Reuters poll of economists showed that growth forecasts for 33 of 46 economies have been cut. Singapore has also not been spared. Factory growth cooled for the fifth consecutive month. The republic’s PMI dipped 0.4 points to 50.7, its lowest reading since December 2016. Singapore’s key electronics sector shrank for a third straight month, with PMI standing at 49.6. Meanwhile, former Fed chairman

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%.
