Is Dairy Farm International A Bargain?
Dairy Farm International Holdings Ltd (SGX: D01) owns the following businesses – Cold Storage, Giant, Guardian and 7-Eleven in Singapore. In short, the company operates supermarkets, hypermarkets, health and beauty, convenience, home furnishings stores, and restaurants. Since 1 Jan to 31 Dec 2018, Dairy Farms’ total return, with dividends reinvested, has come in at 18.1%, easily beating the performance by the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) that saw a decline of 6.5%. With the outperformance in Dairy Farm’s share price, is the company still a bargain? To find out we will be using three metrics, namely, its price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio, its dividend yield and its net-debt-to-equity ratio. The consumer conglomerate is currently trading at US$9.48 and has a trailing twelve months (

Dividends Are The Gift That Keep On Giving
Christmas is over. We didn’t have chestnuts roasting on an open fire and we didn’t have Frosty the Snowman, either – it’s much too warm for that in Singapore. But Santa Claus did come to town. And in the case of, us, dividend investors, it could almost be Christmas every day. When it comes to income investing, it can sometimes feel like Christmas every month of the year. But the reliability of the income stream can depend on whether we have been naughty or nice, which in the case of dividend investors is whether we have been successful with our stock selections. Since starting a column in The Business Times some 12 months ago, I have looked at a myriad of sectors. They range from pedestrian Real Estate Investment Trusts to high-flying airlines… …. But they all have one thin

These 3 Blue Chip Stocks Have Grown Dividends By More Than 50% In Last 10 Years
Income investors would ideally like to invest in companies that have sustainable dividends. Unfortunately, no one can accurately predict the future, which makes estimating the future dividends of a company potentially tricky. One way to help clear up some of the fog would be to look at a company’s history of paying dividends. Over the past 10 years, the global economy has been through some really rough times, with the great financial crisis being the most jarring episode. It would thus mean that a company that can grow its dividends in the past decade has a business that has some stability and sustainability in the past – and that could be a great starting point for further research.

Comprising close to 80% of the entire market value in Singapore, the returns that the stocks on the STI provides is essentially the market returns or benchmark returns.

Which Singapore-Listed Supermarket Share Should Investors Buy Now? Part 1
There are two major listed supermarket shares in Singapore. Dairy Farm International Holdings Ltd (SGX: D01) runs its retail business under brands such as Guardian, Cold Storage, Giant Hypermarket, and 7-Eleven while Sheng Siong Group Ltd (SGX: OV8) operates its namesake-branded stores. Interestingly, both company shares have outperformed the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) in 2018. Given the interest in the companies, investors might want to know which of the two supermarkets they should consider investing now. As such, I would like to put both companies up for a side-by-side comparison. To start, I will compare the earnings performance of both companies for the first half of the year.

4 Stocks This Week (Turnover) [21 December 2018] – Venture Corp; Dairy Farm; Genting Singapore; UOB
In 2018, stocks that are listed on Singapore’s Straits Times Index (STI) has seen an increase in volatility compared to 2017. This heightened volatility has also translated into a higher trading turnover for more than half of the STI stocks. Read Also: Complete Guide To Investing In The STI ETF Trading turnover is simply calculated as the price of a stock multiplied by its trading volume. When a stock’s trading turnover surges, it usually means there is more interest in the company. This can be either a good or bad thing as investors find reasons to buy up the stock or sell down the stock. A surge in trading volume can also represent institutional investors actively investing in or selling the stock. As the STI has declined by close to 11.2% in 2018, it shouldn’t come as a surprise t

Why Dollar Cost Averaging with single stocks is almost always a bad idea
Dollar cost averaging (or DCA) is a simple technique that allows you to invest large sums of money over a period of time. For example, if you have $12,000, you don’t invest the lump sum right away but split if over let’s say 12 months. This way, when prices are low, investors will automatically purchase more with $1,000 and when prices are high, he will purchase less. The goal is not to time the market to get the cheapest price, but to obtain the average price. Dollar cost averaging is primarily used by long term investors who do not wish to time the market. Regular Savings Plan DCA is normally used in conjunction with regular savings plan offered by several banks and brokerages in Singapore. These services automate the entire process for you.

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

In fact, the top 10 best-performing billionaire stocks averaged a total return of 29% for 2018 year-to-date.

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.

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.

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
