Singapore’s Strait Times Index (SGX: ^STI) has had a rough 2018, falling 9.1% from the start of the year until the end of November.

With that in mind, let’s look at the top five performing companies and the returns they have provided to investors this year (data as of 30 November 2018): Dairy Farm International Holdings Ltd (SGX: D01) is a member of the Jardine group of companies.

Singapore Stock Market Valuation [10 Year Price-to-Book Ratio]
Someone requested the data for stock market valuations stretching back to 2008 low so I thought I share it with everyone. Just a reference point for everyone. Changes in composition I was having a discussion with a friend who was commenting that the composition of the STI had changed significantly over the last decade – with the banks making up a larger percentage of the index today (upwards of 40%). He remarked that Singtel used to make up a bigger proportion of the Straits Times Index but that the banks had really powered ahead post GFC – continually making up an ever increasing proportion of the Straits Times Index. This might affect historical comparisons Readers should keep in mind that weighting of the largest  constituents have changed over the years – making

The Art of the Good Life #50 : Sturgeon's Law
Ted Sturgeon was a sci-fi author who claims that "90% of everything is crap" and this chapter proposes that the same applies for the stock market. This is useful when you decide what kind of media to indulge in. 90% of all fiction is crap. 90% of all Netflix shows are crap. In a moment of self-reflection, perhaps 90% of investment training is crap so I need to constantly improve my training slides.While preparing stock screens for this weekend's class to demonstrate this concept, I wanted to see how many stocks fall into this category in SGX :a) Cannot be a ADR, GDR, China Stock or a REIT.b) Cannot have a market capitalisation below $50M. c) Must have revenue above 150% of the average of the remaining counters after step (b).d) Must have an operating cash flow above the average o

4 Stocks This Week (STI Best Performers) [23 November 2018] – Dairy Farm; Comfort Delgro; ST Engineering; Jardine Matheson
The Straits Times Index is made of the 30 largest and most liquid stocks listed in Singapore. It provides a measure for the benchmark return in Singapore, and investors use it to compare how their investment portfolios have performed. The global stock markets have mostly turned red in 2018, and the STI was not spared either. In the YTD 2018, the STI has generated a return of -6.8%. Even though the collective returns of the 30 constituent stocks was negative 6.8%, the four best performing STI stocks managed to deliver a return of nearly 13.9%.

4 Stocks This Week (Billionaire Stocks) [16 November 2018] – Sri Trang; Best World; Top Glove; Japfa
The Singapore Exchange is home to nearly 100 stocks with market capitalisations of more than S$1 billion. These “billionaire stocks” are from a range of sectors and geographical concentrations, giving investors a wide range of investment opportunities. Contrary to common perception that larger capitalised stocks can only deliver modest growth, as compared to smaller caps, the top performing billionaire stocks on SGX have delivered enviable returns in 2018 year-to-date, despite market corrections and overall uncertainty and volatility. In fact, the top 10 best-performing billionaire stocks averaged a total return of 29% for 2018 year-to-date. These stocks are Sri Trang (48.2%), Best World (44.0%), Top Glove (42.9%), Japfa (41.7%), M1 (26.7%), Keppel T&T (21.2%), Sheng Siong (18.4%),

These 3 Companies Are Trading Close To Their 52-Week Low
I’m a value investor. As such, I like to search for companies that are trading at low valuations. A list of stocks that are near their respective 52-week lows is a good place to start my search for a good reason. These are the stocks that are either unloved or beaten down by the market. However, some of these stocks could turn out to be bargains compared to their actual economic worth. That’s because market participants can at times react too negatively to certain companies that have sound long-term prospects but have experienced some short-term stumbles. I often screen for stocks that are trading near their 52-week lows around once every week. There are many different stocks that pop up on my screen each time I run it. With that in mind, here are three companies that have turned u

Hype Or Threat To Traditional Grocers?
For the past few weeks, the two largest supermarket operators, Sheng Siong Group (Sheng Siong) and Dairy Farm International (Dairy Farm) have reported less than stellar sets of financial results. Sheng Siong reported core 3Q18 net profit that increased by 1.5 percent to $17.7 million compared to a year ago, while revenue rose 8 percent to $227.9 million.  Despite a healthy growth in the top line, the bottom line was impacted by higher-than-expected administrative expenses which were 16.6 percent higher on due to higher store counts. For Dairy Farm, earnings results are released semi-annually. However, market talks have surfaced regarding the management’s contemplation over a bulk sale of its Giant stores. The market rumours arose when news of several Giant outlets were or due to shutter

5 things to know before you invest in the Phillip SING Income ETF
A year ago, Phillip Capital Management, along with Lion Global Investors, launched the Lion-Phillip S-REIT ETF. The ETF aimed to give investors a way to invest in a diversified basket of Singapore REITs (S-REITs) which paid a steady stream of distributions. (At the moment, the average distribution yield for S-REITs is 6.8%.) The ETF was met with a largely positive response from the market – Lion Global Investors and Phillip Capital Management initially aimed to raise S$40-50 million but exceeded their target when the fund raised over S$100 million last October. Capitalizing on the Singapore market’s appetite for yield, Phillip Capital Management has now launched the Phillip SING Income ETF. The initial offer period for the ETF will close at 11:00 a.m. on 19 October 2018 before its list

How we made 59.4% returns (and growing) investing in Dairy Farm International
I know the title of this article sounds a like a boast but if you bear with me and read the article to the end, I’ll reveal the investment thought process that led to why we decided to buy and, subsequently, sell our stake in Dairy Farm International. History Back in October 2015, I publicly presented my analysis on Dairy Farm International at InvestX Congress. Those who attended the live event would have learnt that Dairy Farm has a deep history stretching back as far as 1886. The company began selling cow’s milk as founder Sir Patrick Manson realised there was lack of dairy in the Asian diet. Within the span of ten years, Dairy Farm soon ventured into the business of rearing pigs and fowl to sell pork, poultry, and eggs in Hong Kong. As more business ventures were added to the Group,

Do You Own These 5 Shares? They May Have Red Flags To Watch Out For
My colleague Royston Yang recently shared five simple but effective tell-tale signs we can use to see if a company is falling into trouble. I thought it’ll be useful for investors if I shared some Singapore-listed shares that exhibited these signs. Sign 1: Falling revenues Tourism attractions owner and operator Straco Corporation Ltd (SGX: S85) is one example of a company which has recently reported falling revenues. For the first quarter of 2018, it reported a 31.7% year-on-year decline in revenue to S$18.8 million; for the second quarter of 2018, there was a 6.4% year-on-year decline in revenue to S$28.3 million. The company cited the temporary breakdown of one of its assets, the Singapore Flyer, as the main reason for its lower revenue in the first quarter. As for the second quar

1 Reason Why I’m Staying Away From Dairy Farm International Holdings Ltd For Now
Dairy Farm International Holdings Ltd (SGX: D01) is a pan-Asian retail group with more than 7,400 outlets (including associates and joint ventures) across many Asian countries and territories. It operates supermarkets, hypermarkets, convenience stores, health and beauty stores, and home furnishings stores under famous brands such as Cold Storage, 7-Eleven, Guardian and IKEA. I like Dairy Farm due to the following reasons: 1) It offers daily essentials through its vast network of stores; 2) It generates copious amounts of free cash flow; and 3) With a rising Asian middle class, the company should do well for the long-term. However, I’m staying away from Dairy Farm for now for one main reason. High valuation Even though there are some great things going on for the company, I’m sta
