3 Ways To Gain Exposure To Real Estate Through The Stock Exchange
It is no secret that Singaporeans love to invest in properties. And who can blame them? Over the past decade, Singapore’s property market has skyrocketed. A growing economy, scarce land supply and low-interest rates have resulted in increasing demand for property. These in turn have propelled prices of property in Singapore to among the most expensive in the world. Investors who had purchased property a few decades ago would likely have made a killing. However, despite its marvellous track record, there are limitations to investing in property in Singapore. For one, investors require a large capital outlay. There are also additional stamp duties for permanent residents and Singaporeans buying their second property. Additionally, property is an illiquid asset that can take months or even

3 Potential Pitfalls of Buying APAC Realty Ltd Shares
APAC Realty Ltd (SGX: CLN) is a real estate brokerage company that operates under the ERA brand name. It has the second highest number of real estate agents in Singapore. In 2016, it commanded a 37.5% market share of transaction value in the Singapore residential market. In the first half of 2018, the group delivered a strong performance as net profit attributable to owners spiked 8.7% on the back of an optimistic real estate market. Recently, I also wrote an article on three reasons why I believe APAC Realty would make a good long-term investment. But every company and investment comes with its own set of risks and potential pitfalls.

3 Reasons Why You Should Buy APAC Realty Ltd
APAC Realty Ltd (SGX: CLN), a real estate brokerage company that operates through the ERA brand, has seen its share price tumble 26% since its listing late last year. The drastic drop in the share price was mostly due to the surprise announcement of additional property cooling measures and its competitor, PropNex Ltd (SGX: OYY), going public in July this year. However I feel that the large sell-off may have been overdone. Even with the near-term uncertainty in the local property market, I believe investors who are willing to play the long game will be rewarded in the future. Here are three reasons why. Long-term growth in the local property market As we all know, Singapore’s property market tends to do well over the long-term. Limited land supply, a bustling economy and low interest ra

Wow. In My 4 Years Of Experience In Options… This Is A First.
I wasn’t intending on a post so quickly after the previous one. But this is quite crazy. Some recent positions have done really well, really quickly. I’ve written, in real time, about each of these positions in InvestingNote. First, I bought some shares in Singtel at $3.12, trading it a mere 2 days later at $3.25, which is pretty good. I don’t really wanna write too much about this cos lotsa guys own Singtel, and it hasn’t been very rewarding. Many tortured souls out there, don’t want them coming up to me with pitch forks. Next, I built a small position in Falcon Energy, betting that they’d manage to restructure their debt successfully. They’re still not out of the woods yet, but at least they managed to increase their liquidity with a $23mil inje

But after completing the draft, I decided that this investment is a Big Idea.I will not be hiding the identity for this company because, at this point in time, I will have already revealed the company name on my Facebook Post.Big Idea 9 became the talk of the town once the cooling measures were announced by the authorities, and within the same period, a bigger rival got listed.This was evidenced from my research as well.

The properties– Spanish Village, Katong Plaza, Gilstead Court and Elizabeth Towers – are collectively asking for a total of $1.8 billion.
