Manulife US REIT (MUST) in explosive rally
With an acronym like MUST, it seems like investing in Manulife US REIT will not go wrong. Indeed, the unit price had been surging from USD0.80 since the start of the year to the current USD0.94. Listed in May 2016, this REIT has a strong sponsor in Manulife Insurance Company, a leading Canada-based financial services group. Despite having a strong pedigree, it has not always been a bed of rose for this REIT. Like many of its peers, Manulife US REIT unit price had been lacklustre in the initial year of listing. Looking back, the counter had been trading below its offering price of US0.83 per for most of 2016 and 2017. Then the unit price took on a life of its own when Temasek Holdings, through DBS Bank, increased its stake from 3.78% to 5.49% in July 2017. Subsequently, Manulife US REIT uni

Is DBS Group, United Overseas Bank, or Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp the Cheapest Singapore Bank Now?
One of the most popular industries among local investors is the banking industry. There are many good reasons to like our local banks: their stable business performances, solid dividend track records, and more. Another good reason to like these banks is their undemanding valuations compared to the Straits Times Index (SGX: STI). Despite this, investors might still want to know which bank among the three has the lowest valuation now. After all, investors are always searching for good value in the stock market. In this article, we’ll try to answer this question: Which is the cheapest bank among the trio of local banks, DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05), Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited (SGX: O39), or United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11)?

3 Reasons I’m Avoiding DBS Group Holdings Ltd for Now
DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05) is one of Singapore’s three largest local banks. The group offers a comprehensive and wide range of banking services for individuals, SMEs, and multinational corporations. DBS has a strong and recognisable brand name in Asia and has also demonstrated a long track record of great service. The bank has grown from strength to strength over the years and has grown impressively since the days of the Global Financial Crisis in 2009, which dented sentiment and caused many banks to trade at depressed valuations. In its Q2 2019 earnings, DBS reported a record net profit, declared a quarterly dividend of S$0.30, and saw rising net interest margins. However, despite the impressive attributes above, here are three reasons I’m avoiding DBS for now. 1. Digi

The Art of Thinking Clearly: Part 10
Here we are again — back to looking at various fallacies and biases that can trip us up as investors. This is part 10 of the series, but amazingly, there are so many more types of biases that can affect and negatively impact our investment decision-making process. Note that these are all adapted from the book “The Art of Thinking Clearly” by Rolf Dobelli. The idea here is to know and understand these biases better so as to be able to avoid their pernicious effects and become better investors. While it is not possible to eliminate such biases completely, we can mitigate their effects by being aware and conscious of them when we make investment decisions.

How Does OCBC Bank Make Money?
Investors who buy banks as part of their portfolios may not fully comprehend how they make money, as financial institutions are complex businesses with many moving parts. I always find it easier, when analysing a company, to split up a business into its component parts or divisions. In this article, I will be looking into how Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited (SGX: O39), or OCBC Bank, makes its money. The best way to do this will be to break the group up into separate components: its core banking division, the non-interest income division, the wealth management division, and the insurance division. Net interest income (NII) The core business of a bank is to make loans, and the net interest income (NII) represents the difference between the interest rates charged by OCBC on loans

Lendlease Global Commercial REIT: 10 Things You Should Know Before Subscribing
Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) are hugely popular investments in Singapore. The reasons for this lie in two key characteristics – 1) its focus on property investments, which Singaporeans just cannot get enough of, and 2) its ability to pay a good annual distribution yield of typically between 5% and 8%. It should come as no surprise that when a new $1.5 billion REIT initial public offering (IPO) is announced, there will be plenty of interest. To guide you in your assessment of whether to invest in Lendlease Global Commercial REIT’s IPO, here are 10 things you should know. # 1 What Is Lendlease Global Commercial REIT?

3 Stocks in Temasek’s Portfolio That Registered the Highest 3-Year Returns
Temasek Holdings is Singapore’s state-owned sovereign wealth fund that manages its assets using a long-term view and based on rigorous due diligence. Temasek holds a diverse range of assets ranging from private to public equities, and as of the end of the 2019 financial year (31 March 2019), the portfolio had a net value of S$313 billion, up slightly from 2018’s S$308 billion. The fund’s total shareholder return over 10 years stood at 9%, and Temasek’s portfolio includes at least 25 listings on the Singapore Exchange (SGX).

LendLease Global Commercial REIT IPO Should Do Well
LendLease Global Commercial REIT is going ahead with their IPO. However, the number of properties that will be injected into the IPO will only be 2, contrary to what I have speculated in my first article. The Australian based group LendLease will be looking to a placement and public offer of 387 million units. The IPO price is set at S$0.88. In total, there will be 1,167 million units outstanding. This will make the market capitalization of LendLease Global Commercial REIT to be close to S$1.56 billion.

2 Reasons Why Dividend Investors Will Love This Singapore Land Transport Company
Dividend investors like to invest in companies that can sustain dividend payments over the long term. Generally, this can be found in blue chip companies that have established long term track record such as Singapore Exchange Limited (SGX: S68) or DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05). Nevertheless, there are smaller companies that have good potential to become solid dividend stock in the long term. In this article, we will look at this company that’s well-positioned to deliver good returns to dividend investors in the next few years.

Forget CapitaLand Commercial Trust: Dividend Investors Should Look at DBS Group
Real estate investment trusts (REITs) are one of the most popular investment vehicles among dividend investors, mainly due to their stable income profile, as well as high profit pay-out ratio (at least 90% of net profit). Moreover, investing in solid REITs like CapitaLand Commercial Trust (SGX: C61U), or CCT, is likely considered as a no-brainer among dividend investors. Yet, if investors are looking for a dividend stock that will give them the best long-term return (at a reasonable level of risk), then buying CCT is probably not the best idea for now. In fact, I think DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05) offers a much better deal now.

2 Singapore Stocks You Can Buy And Hold Forever
In a changing world, it’s hard to find stocks that will last the test of time. Technology is advancing at a rapid pace. Companies that are unable to embrace change and grow with the times may find themselves becoming obsolete. As such, it is getting increasingly difficult to find stable stocks that we can count on for the long-term. However, I believe I have found two companies that fit the bill. These two companies have: (1) a long track record of stable earnings and cash flow; (2) businesses that are likely going to be required years from now; and (3) been willing to return excess returns to shareholders.  Dibs on DBS Singapore’s largest bank, DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05) is one of my top picks to buy and hold for the long-term.

Chart of the Week: Runaway Performance of DBS Shares
Singapore banks have all given investors plenty to cheer about, especially for shareholders of DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05). Over the last five years, shares in DBS, Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited (SGX: O39), and United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11) have climbed strongly. However, the strongest performer of them all was Singapore’s largest bank; DBS. DBS shares rose 34% in the past five years, versus a negative return for the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI). The strong share price growth is not surprising, given DBS’s net profit and dividend have increased the most among the banking trio. From FY2014 to FY2018 (DBS has a 31 December year-end), earnings from DBS grew 8.4% per annum while its dividend per share climbed 19.9% per year. DBS also ended FY2018 with the hi
