3 Negative Things Investors Should Know About DBS Group Holdings Ltd’s 2017 Second Quarter Performance
DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05) is Singapore’s largest bank by total assets. Recently, I went through the bank’s 2017 second quarter results and found both positive and negative things. In a previous article, I shared the good developments. In this article, I would like to share the negatives: 1. Higher non-performing loan (NPL) ratio In the second quarter of 2017, DBS’s total non-performing loans was S$4.47 billion, up from S$4.36 billion in the first quarter of 2017, and S$3.26 billion in the second quarter of 2016. This caused its NPL ratio to end at 1.5 in the reporting quarter, up from 1.4 and 1.1 in the first quarter of 2017 and second quarter of 2016, respectively. The bank saw its NPL ratio increase (on a year-on-year and sequential basis) in a number of its geographi

How To Get Income For Life
Warren Buffett recently said that his Berkshire Hathaway conglomerate was sitting on $100 billion in cash. The word “awesome” is much overused. People like to say that about the most mundane things we encounter. But Buffett’s cash pile is truly awesome. Without putting too fine a point on things, the pile of readies is equivalent to around a third of Singapore’s annual economic output. It is more than the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia combined, for an entire year. And unless Buffett can find a way to spend the money, the pile could grow even larger. A nice problem But Buffett doesn’t exactly want to sit on the cash. He would much rather put it to good use. However, he can’t find anything suitable to buy, just yet. In his case, there is probably noth

With US interest rates likely to rise going forward (given the fact that the Federal Reserve has signalled six rate hikes from now till end-2019), investors in Singapore are paying attention to the local banks as higher interest rates may be a net positive for them.

Investment Watchlist For China’s OBOR Initiative
In the first part of this two-part series, we took a deep dive into China’s One Belt One Road (OBOR) initiative to explore what it means to be part of China’s OBOR. In the second part of this series, we highlight six sectors that are on CIMB Research’s investment watchlist to ride on China’s OBOR initiative. 1. China & ASEAN Banks   The banking sector will be a key beneficiary of OBOR, be it in China or in the ASEAN region. The OBOR strategy will be massive and will require heavy financing, both working capital or credit. Chinese and ASEAN banks have the opportunity to extend and provide credit to finance infrastructure projects throughout the region. Provision of cross-border and local financing for OBOR related investments will be key to the OBOR initiative’s success.

An important part of becoming a better investor is to read. And in that spirit, here are a few great articles from my colleagues I have come across recently that I think will help make investors of all stripes better.

The Week Ahead: DBS Group, UOB and OCBC Eyed
So now we know. The US Federal Reserve will start to shrink the size of its swollen balance sheet from October. It will begin by retiring $10 billion worth of bonds next month. As the winding down of the Fed’s bond holdings continues, it will most likely be keeping an eye on key US economic indications. The weekly jobless claims could be one of them. Last week, 259,000 Americans filed for unemployment benefit. It is expected to drop to 236,000 this time. China is seething after rating agency, S&P’s, downgraded the country’s bonds. The argument against a downgrade is that China is a developing economy. As such, the models used in developed economies do not apply…. ….The extent of China’s development will be on show at the end of next week. The second-largest economy in the w

Quick Review Of Singapore Banks & Research Houses’ Views
With the expectations of rising interesting rates and an improving economy on the backdrop, Phillip Securities Research (PS) expects Singapore banks’ performance to pick up again. Previously, PS gave our local banking sector an Underweight call. As better loans volume and rate dynamics are expected to improve, PS decided to upgrade the sector as a whole to Neutral. We look at some considerations PS currently has and which bank deserves some attention. Wealth management DBS and OCBC banks saw their wealth management arms grew while UOB is trailing behind its two peers. DBS’s niche in the upper affluent market segment, in PS’s view, puts the bank in a leading position compared to OCBC and UOB.

Singapore’s ePayments Space: 13 Key Numbers Investors Should Know
Electronic payment or ePayment has become a hot topic of discussion. The space received a boost from Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong during his National Day Rally. During his speech, he pointed out that Singapore is trailing China in implementing a widely used electronic means of payment. To learn more, I looked up several articles from sgsme.sg (here and here) and The Edge Singapore (here) for context. With that in mind, here are 13 figures that investors might want to sit up and take notice: Nets reported that its transactions totalled $24 billion in 2016, up from $23 billion in 2015 and $21 billion in 2014.

DBS Group Holdings Ltd Is Up by More Than 30% In The Last 12 Months. Is It Expensive Now?
DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05) or DBS for short, is one of the three major banks based in Singapore, along with United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11) and Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited (SGX: O39). In the last 12 months, the bank’s market value has gained more than 30%. Given the recent price appreciation, is the bank’s valuation expensive now? Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to this since there are many ways to look at valuation. Still, we will try to answer the above question by comparing DBS Group’s current valuation to the market through three perspectives, namely price-to-book, price-to-earnings and dividend yield. Here, the proxy that we will use as the market’s average valuation is the SPDR Straits Times Index ETF. Price to book ratio (P/B) *Source: Go

IS KINGSMEN CREATIVES A VALUE TRAP?
Kingsmen Creatives is a company that recently caught my eye. The company has four business segments - exhibitions and thematic, retail and corporate interiors, research and design and alternative marketing. It organises events including the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix and the Singapore Airshow, and designs interiors for Uniqlo, DBS Bank and Coach. As a value investor, I constantly look for shares that are trading close to their 52-week lows. Kingsmen Creatives is currently trading at 60 cents, just off its 52-week low of 58.5 cents. When share prices of companies decline, it could either be an opportunity to purchase undervalued shares, or it could be a value trap. Understanding the fundamentals of the company would allow us to make an informed investment decision. Profitabili
