2 Singapore Shares That Might Give Investors Big Ang Paos For The Pig Year
Happy Chinese New Year! Chinese New Year is the most important festival in the Chinese tradition. During this period, family members will gather together for a once-in-a-year reunion dinner. For the adults, this is an excellent time to catch up with other family members to share about the latest developments in their respective lives. As for the children, it’s a good time to meet and play with other children, especially with those who live overseas. More importantly, it’s the only time in the year for them to earn some “income”. During this time, we can see children waiting eagerly for the adults to hand over the red packets, or what’s better known as an “ang pao”. When I was a kid, waiting for these ang paos was always the highlight for the year. Nowadays, such moment remain

3 Singapore Blue Chips That Have More Than Doubled Their Profits In The Last Decade
Long term investors seek companies that can sustain, or better still, grow their profitability for the foreseeable future. As a matter of fact, no one can accurately predict the future, thus, the ability of a company to consistently be profitable over the long term. Thus, average investors might want to limit their investments to those companies that have a more predictable business, or in other words, blue chips. Now, the conventional wisdom is that blue chip companies are boring investments since they don’t usually grow much given their size. This is true, to a certain extent. Yet, there are some blue chip companies that continued to grow their profitability over time, despite their size.

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.

Gold Price is Rising: Should You Switch Out of Singapore Shares and Load Up on Gold Instead?
Just last week, gold hit close to a seven-month peak on macroeconomic fears. What a turn of fortune it has been. Since the hitting a one-year low of US$1,176.20/ounce in August 2018, gold has gone on rise some 10% to a high of US$1,291.80/ounce on 3 January 2018. Disappointingly, Singapore’s stock market, as represented by the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI), fell 6.1% during the same time frame. With the poor performance of shares, should you switch out of them and buy gold instead? Safe haven Before we answer the question above, let’s look at why gold is popular during economic uncertainties. Gold is often seen as a safe-haven asset in times of financial uncertainty as it is perceived as not being at risk of becoming worthless, unlike other assets having credit risk. Historically, g

How Did the Singapore-Listed Banks Perform in 2018?
In 2018, the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) posted a 6.5% decline in total return (which consists of capital gains and dividends), as revealed in a recent report by the Singapore Exchange. However, the three banks that belong to the index did better for the year. Let’s look at out how each of the banks performed in 2018. DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05) DBS, the biggest bank in Singapore, posted a total return of 1.2% last year. The bank’s high dividend yield of around 5% allowed the total return to stay in the positive territory despite the fall in share price. For the nine months ended 30 September 2018, DBS’ total income went up by 12% to a record of S$9.94 billion mainly due to higher net interest income, which rose 16% to S$6.63 billion. Net interest margin increased from 1.7

DBS, UOB or OCBC – Which Has The Best Financial Track Record? Round 2
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 2018, these banks have seen their stocks price declining for the next few months, down by more than 20% from their respective peaks. The decline in the banks’ stocks price might draw some interest from investors. One of this group of investors is the Singapore dividend investors. In particular, Singaporean dividend investors might want to know which bank might be a better Singapore dividend stock. Clearly, there is no easy answer to the above question.

Will the Stock Market Volatility Continue in 2019?
2018 will perhaps be remembered as one with big swings in the stock market. It was not uncommon to see stock price swings of more than 10% in a single day — even Singapore’s largest company DBS Group Holdings Ltd  (SGX: D05) faced huge price swings this year. As 2018 comes to a close, certain factors could cause the market volatility to continue. Here are three key risks that investors should take note of. Trade war The China-US trade wars have been one of the key reasons for market volatility this year. It all started when President Trump issued tariffs on US$50 billion of China imports. China was quick to retaliate, issuing its own set of tariffs on US-imported goods. Before long, the trade war spiralled to include a whole range of goods, of around US$200 billion worth of Chines
