3 Undervalued Mid-Cap Developers To See Strong Growth In 2018
For most of 2H17, Rowsley Holdings (Rowsley) has dominated daily trading volumes owing to the news of Singaporean business magnate Peter Lim’s plan to inject Thomson Medical into the group. Other developers attracted little investors’ interest, until enbloc activities started to heat up recently. As always, investors tend to think of the usual suspects like City Developments and UOL Group when they want to pick up stocks to ride the recovery in Singapore’s property market. But that leaves some small and mid-cap developers undiscovered at discounted valuations. Here are 3 mid-cap developers that could see strong growth in 2018.

SI Research: Can Product Placement Benefit Local Stocks?
Remember the 2016 South Korean television series, Descendants of the Sun (DOTS), which transformed the declining Korean Wave (K-Wave) into a Korean Tsunami? The series took flak for its use of product placement involving Korea’s largest automaker Hyundai, a fast food restaurant franchise and a well-known cosmetics brand. Criticism aside, the marketing strategy proved successful, boosting the sales of these brands in South Korea and abroad, particularly in neighbouring China. While product placement is not uncommon in the film and television industry, instead of taking a page out of the book, mm2 Asia took the entire book in its recent film Ah Boys To Men 4. Although keeping a balance between product placement and the quality of a production leads to positive results, could excessive prod

Bitcoin Blows Past the US$14,000-Mark And is Now Larger Than the Combined Size of Singapore’s Banks
It seems like nothing can stop the meteoric rise in the price of Bitcoin. The cryptocurrency started 2017 at below US$1,000, but it has shot through the roof in recent months, surpassing the US$5,000-mark in October and going above US$11,000 for the first time less than two months later. It did not stop there. Bitcoin zoomed past US$14,000 today, less than 24 hours after crossing US$12,000. It is now worth US$14,038.97, up more than 1,300% year-to-date. Source: Coindesk With that, the digital currency’s market capitalisation stands at around US$235 billion now, trouncing some of the combined market capitalisations of the Straits Times Index‘s (SGX: ^STI) components. For one, the Singapore banks – DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05), Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited (SGX: O

Credit Risk: How DBS Group Holding Ltd Manages This Vital Risk
DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05) or DBS in short, is one of the three major banks based out of Singapore, along with United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11) and Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited (SGX: O39). As a bank, DBS Group faces a number of important risks that it has to manage on a daily basis. Failure to do so effectively and efficiently could cause significant damage to its business, and subsequently shareholders’ returns. Investors will need to understand the risks that a typical bank faces, and how it intends to manage those risks. Today, we will explore one of the most important risks – credit risks – and how DBS Group manages its risk. But first, what is credit risk? In simple terms, credit risk is the risk of default on a debt that may arise from a borrower failing

Updated as at 24/11/2017After much consideration, I've decided to reveal the current holdings in my portfolio. My portfolio is a low five-figure sum, which I have accumulated from my savings, National Service allowance and working part-time jobs.I started investing in mid-2015, while I was in National Service. Looking back, mid-2015 was probably the worst time to start, as the markets began to decline due to the sharp fall in oil prices and fears of a hard landing for the Chinese economy. I'd concede that when I first started buying shares, I had close to zero knowledge about doing due diligence. I definitely wasn't ready, and consequently got badly burnt by the oil and gas sector. It was a humbling experience to be taught a lesson be Mr Market, and one thing I learnt was that we should ne

1 Simple Number For Understanding 3 Important Areas Of Hong Leong Financial Group Berhad’s Business
Hong Leong Financial Group Berhad (KLSE: 1082.KL) is one of the leading financial institutions in Malaysia.  Although it shares a very similar name with the Singapore-based and Singapore-listed Hong Leong Finance Ltd (SGX: S41), the two companies have little to do with each other. For investors interested in Singapore’s big banks such as DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05), Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited (SGX: O39), and United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11), it may also be worthwhile to look at the business of Hong Leong Financial Group, just to see how the Singapore banks stack up against the Malaysian company. In this article, I want to dig deep into Hong Leong Financial Group’s return on equity, or ROE. The choice of ROE Why the ROE some of you might be asking? That’s becau

Positive Macro Conditions To Drive SG Banks’ Performance
According to PM Lee, Singapore’s economy is expected to grow at close to 3.0%. This result, if achieved, would be one of the best Singapore’s economy will register following the global financial crisis. With macro conditions continuing to improve, positive sentiments in domestic markets have built up. Capital markets and property markets appear to be revitalised. The rejuvenated economy is a positive sign for the banking sector, which is usually the first to experience any turnaround in sentiments.

Understanding 1 Crucial Aspect Of Singapore’s Bank Stocks: Management Remuneration
A widely discussed topic in the world of investing today is corporate governance. As the words suggest, it is the concept of how a company is governed. Corporate governance is an important topic due to the agency model that many companies have, whereby the owners (shareholders) and managers are separate groups of people. The separation of the role of owner and manager could result in problems due to the potential conflict of interests between the two parties. For example, shareholders suffer when a company’s business performance is poor, but the managers may still want to be paid a fat salary. Having good corporate governance could help to minimise problems. There are many facets to the issue of corporate governance and I’m not going to cover them all in this article. What I want to do

How 1.95% More Interest on Savings Can Greatly Impact Your Wealth | The DBS Multiplier Account
Why do some of my Millennial friends don’t want to go on 2 free trips to Europe? That is a good question. Being the oldest millennial around, I get to work with a bunch of co-workers that are at least 7-10 years younger than myself. I get to see their spending habits but knowing whether they do save money, or how they build their wealth is another matter altogether. 3 weeks ago we went to the nearby Ghim Moh market to have some cheap yet great food. I took the opportunity to ask one of my co-worker which savings account does he use to maximize his savings. He told me he does not used any special savings account. I was horrified. At first, I thought he is like me. He must invest and these savings are his dry powder to take advantage of market correction. He doesn’t invest. He told me th

I Remember – DBS Fixed Deposit in 1993
Back in 1993, my mother and I had a fixed deposit placed with DBS Bank. Back then DBS Bank was known as The Development Bank of Singapore Ltd. This fixed deposit was kept for 24 years. From a sum of $5,000, it became $7,246 in 24 years. Every year the annual interest earned was added to the initial principal sum on a compounding basis. This works out to be 1.56% per year. This interest rate for fixed deposit (1.56% p.a.) is better than the current interest rate of 0.35% p.a. Bear in mind that the Global Financial Crisis hit us in 2007/08 some 10 years ago. During the last 10 years, the interest rates for savings account were rock bottom.

Earnings Brief: Challenger Technologies Limited, DBS Group Holdings Ltd and BreadTalk Group Limited
Last Friday, Challenger Technologies Limited (SGX: 573) released its third quarter earnings while this morning, DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05) and BreadTalk Group Limited (SGX: 5DA) announced their third quarter results. Here are some quick highlights from the earnings announcements: 1. Challenger Technologies a) Revenue for the quarter ended 30 September 2017 rose 5% year-on-year to S$78 million. This was mainly due to improved performance from IT products, and stronger growth from the corporate sales division and retail operations. b) Profit attributable to shareholders surged 90% to S$3.3 million, largely on the back of an absence of an impairment provision for investments in a last-mile delivery provider during the same period last year, higher gross profit, and lower operating

The Week Ahead: Can DBS Trump OCBC and UOB?
We are about to enter the final stretch of the Singapore earning season. More than a dozen Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) are pencilled in for results next week. DBS Group (SGX: D05) will be the final Singapore banks to post numbers. It has a tough act to follow after blowout results from OCBC (SGX: O39) and UOB (SGX: U11). In August, Singapore’s biggest bank posted an 8% jump in second-quarter profits. However, the bank pointed to pressures in credit in the oil and gas sector. Airport-services outfit SATS (SGX: S58) recently announced a tie-up with Malaysian-based airline AirAsia. Next week it will tell us how it has fared in the second quarter. In July, it said operating profit dipped 1.8% due to the end of rebates extended by Changi airport to help deal with challenging times. C

Upward Momentum Going Strong
US benchmark Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) pushed through 23,000 driven by strong earnings from tech giants including Amazon, Alphabet, Microsoft and Intel. Early this week President Trump mentioned that he was very close to naming the next Fed chair while the Senate has also approved Republican’s budget bill signifying a major step forward in their tax cut plans. These series of positive news proved very helpful in sustaining the uplift sentiments, as DJIA ended the fortnight gaining 2.5 percent at 23,400.86. Volatility heightened in the Euro zone, with ECB President Mario Draghi unveiling plans to cut the central bank’s bond purchases from 60 billion euros to 30 billion a month starting in January, but also extending the purchases until September next year.
