2 Singapore-Listed Shares You Can Buy and Hold Forever
Warren Buffett once mentioned: “When we own portions of outstanding businesses with outstanding management, our favourite holding period is forever.” That said, finding stocks that you can potentially buy and hold forever is not easy. The company needs to have a long track record, have a competent management team, operate in resilient industries and have an established economic moat to shield it from competitors. In a small market like Singapore, it becomes even more challenging to find companies that exhibit all of these characteristics. However, despite my strict criteria, I believe I have found two stocks that potentially fit the bill. First on the list is DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05), the largest bank in Singapore. When hunting for investments that can last a lifetime, it i

Singapore Banks Series (UOB, OCBC, DBS) – Understanding what loan books are and why they matter
This is the third part of our Singapore Banking series. As discussed in the last post, the main driver of earnings for banks are interest income (or specifically net interest income). Net interest income = Interest income – interest expense And profitability of these loans are dictated by net interest margins. If you were to add up all their loans, you get their “loan book” which is simply the collective value of all their loans added up together.   Thinking more about loan books Going back to our example of a money lender – you could choose to lend your money to different groups of people. Each group of person would have a different characteristic which would impact their ability to repay the interest and principal back. Ideally you want a reasonably diversified l

2 Reasons Why Investors Should Be Excited About DBS Group Holdings Ltd Now
DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05) is one of Singapore’s three major banks. Right now, DBS Group’s share price is S$24.30, down by around 20% from its peak earlier this year that was reached in April. The fall in DBS Group’s share price is a sign that the bank is currently out of favour among investors. But, here are two reasons why investors should be excited about the bank now. Strong recent financial performance After posting strong results in the second quarter of 2018 (where total income and profit grew by 10% and 18% year-on-year, respectively), DBS Group did the same in the third quarter. Here are some numbers: 1) Total income was up by 10% from a year ago to S$3.38 billion for 2018’s third quarter. 2) Net interest income (the bank’s income from making l

These Companies Could Benefit From The China-US Trade Truce
Is the worst of the trade conflict finally behind us? On Monday, stock markets in Asia reacted positively to the announcement that the United States and China have agreed not to impose further tariffs on each other for 90 days. China is hoping that the US will remove tariffs imposed in July, while the White House said that talks will take place to resolve specific US complaints such as “forced technology transfer” within the next 90 days. If the trade conflict does resolve, it will certainly be good news for investors around the world. Lower trade barriers mean more efficient use of resources and larger markets for companies around the world in a time where trade has become a major part of the world economy. While the lifting of trade tariffs do not directly impact Singapore,

3 Shares Institutional Investors Bought Last Week
There are many ways to find investment ideas. Some useful ways are to screen for stocks or to look at a list of stocks near their 52-week lows to sieve out potential bargains. Studying what institutional investors have been buying or selling is another avenue. Institutional investors are typically large investment organisations, such as hedge funds, mutual funds, unit trust companies, sovereign wealth funds, insurance companies and so on. These investors tend to possess vastly greater resources than individual investors like you and me when researching stocks.

Which Singapore Bank Stock Should Investors Buy Now? (Part 1)
In Singapore, the three major listed banks are DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05), Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited (SGX: O39) and United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11). After peaking in April, all three banks have seen their share price fall by more than 20% from their respective peaks. The recent decline in the banks’ shares might draw some interest from investors. In particular, investors might want to know which bank among the three is the one they should consider investing in now. Unfortunately, there is no easy answer. As such, I would like put all three banks side-to-side for a direct comparison. In this article, I will compare the recent quarterly earnings performance of the trio of banks.

3 Singapore Blue-Chip Shares That Warren Buffett Might Like
World-renowned investor, Warren Buffett, likes to invest in companies with a wide economic moat. The presence of an economic moat in a company’s business acts as a powerful deterrent to would-be competitors who are considering encroaching the territory of the business. Examples are abound of Buffett investing in companies with sticky consumers, ensuring even more profits are produced by the firms when consumers come back for more. In Singapore’s stock market, there are also companies with wide economic moats. Let’s look at three such companies that are part of the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI), and hence, are also known colloquially as blue-chip shares. Company #1 The first company on the list is Singapore Exchange Limited (SGX: S68), or SGX in short. SGX is the only stock

Why Are Singapore-Listed Bank Stocks Down This Year?
The three major banks in Singapore, DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05), United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11) and Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited (SGX: O39), have each reported higher interest income and net profits for the first nine of months of the year. And yet, each of their shares have declined substantially year-to-date. DBS, UOB and OCBC share prices are down by 9.3% 11.5%, and 13.2% respectively. So why are their stocks down despite reporting higher earnings so far this year? Here are some possible fundamental reasons why market participants may have been selling down bank shares this year. Mortgage book growth slower than expected due to additional cooling measures Earlier this year, the Singapore government imposed additional property cooling measures to ease the nearly 10% s

Which Singapore-Listed Bank Is Cheaper Than The Stock Market Now?
Since their respective peaks in May 2018, shares in DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05), Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited (SGX: O39) and United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11) have lost more than 19% each. For instance, DBS shares have plummeted some 25% to close at S$23.20 apiece yesterday. Given the poor share performance by the banking trio, it begs the question: Which bank has the most enticing valuation to hold for the long-term? To help answer that, I would be comparing the valuation of the banks against that of the SPDR STI ETF (SGX: ES3), an exchange-traded fund which can be taken as a proxy for the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI). The table below shows the valuation comparison of the banks against the SPDR STI ETF (the best values among the banks are in bold):Source: S&P

SI Research: An Interview With Sasseur REIT
Fueling China’s transition from an export-led economy to one driven by domestic consumption is none other than the free-spending younger generation of Chinese consumers that are growing in size. With rising income, China’s middle-class is growing at an unprecedented pace even beyond the largest cities. The contemporary Chinese consumers are no longer just buying to meet their daily needs. In a big part, higher education has also shaped the way how today’s Chinese consumers spend. With a literacy rate of 96 percent, Chinese consumers have grown highly sophisticated and rising demand for luxurious products have become a way of life. Riding on this tailwind is Sasseur Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT), the first premium outlet mall REIT listed in Asia on the mainboard of the Singapore

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.

Last Week in Numbers: Stocks Rally After Midterm Elections
US stocks surged on Wednesday, 7 November, a day after the midterm election results.

What Investors Should Know About Share Buybacks by Singapore-Listed Companies in October 2018
Companies which buyback their shares could signal to the market that their shares are undervalued. Last month, 29 companies repurchased 30.8 million shares or units for a total amount of S$59.9 million, according to a report released by the Singapore Exchange Limited (SGX: S68) recently. The October buyback was 36% down from September’s buyback of S$94 million. In October, some companies were on blackout periods, which means that they cannot conduct share repurchases ahead of their earnings release. The top six companies with the largest share buyback amount in October 2018 were DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05), Keppel REIT (SGX: K71U), City Developments Limited (SGX: C09), SATS Ltd (SGX: S58), Singapore Press Holdings Limited (SGX: T39), and Singapore Exchange.
