2 Main Risks That DBS Faces and How It Plans to Manage Them
DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05) is one of the three major banks based out of Singapore, along with United Overseas Bank Ltd and Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited. In this article, I will look at the business risks of DBS to help us better understand its business. This is important because risks exist in all businesses and one of the aims of a company would be to reduce risks. With that, let’s look at two main risks outlined by DBS and how it plans to manage those risks. Credit risk As a financial institution, one of the main risks that it faces is credit risk arising from its lending activities. So, what is the company doing to manage such a risk?

Institutional Investors Have Been Buying These 2 Singapore Blue-Chip Shares
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. Hence, it may be useful to keep a close eye on what they are doing, as a way to generate ideas. In this article, I’ll look at two Singapore stocks (among the top ten stocks) that have seen the highest net purchases in dollar v

Stocks Are Down, but Don’t Bet Against History
I woke up this morning to a red mist. As most of you reading this have probably already heard, Wall Street stocks were crippled last night as the news broke that China had devalued its currency. The S&P 500 was down nearly 3% in a brutal trading day. Meanwhile, the Dow shed 760 points, or 2.9%. With overnight trading continuing lower, stocks in the US could open even lower tomorrow. It’s hard to say if this decline will continue, especially given that neither the US nor China is backing down from the trade war.  However, before you hit that sell button, realise that stock market sell-offs such as this have happened before. Many times, in fact, and each time, the stock market as a whole has rebounded even stronger than before, climbing above its previous high to reach fresh

Deutsche Bank Recently Axed 18,000 Jobs Globally. Here Are 5 Hard Truths I Learned About The Corporate World
At Deutsche Bank’s offices around the world on 8 July 2019, workers can be spotted leaving with their belongings. As part of its restructuring plan, the German-headquartered bank announced that it will be dramatically reducing its fixed income operations and eliminate its global equities business. This will result in 18,000 jobs being lost. If you were to understand how banks operate, then you might not be surprised. After all, we’ve all heard our fair share of stories about how banks treat employees as ‘disposable’, which this TODAY article explains. When companies are doing well, bonuses and higher salaries roll out rapidly to reward workers. But when things go downhill, employees are removed with great haste and not much qualms. With such a cavalier attitude,

The Week in Numbers: US Stocks Reach Record Highs
US Stocks reached an all-time high this week. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite reached 3,019 and 8,321 respectively, lifted by strong corporate quarterly results and optimism that the United States will resolve its trade conflict with China. The US corporate earnings season was off to a strong start with nearly 80% of 104 of the 500 companies topping earnings expectations so far in the second quarter. Expectations that the Federal Reserve will cut interest rates at its policy-setting meeting this week have further fuelled the enthusiasm. Overall profits of S&P 500 companies are expected to rise by about 1% in the second quarter, according to Refinitiv, a provider of financial markets data.

Investors’ Corner (DBS Group Holdings, SPH REIT, ComfortDelgro Corporation, Singtel)
DBS Group Holdings Price – $25.61 Target – $30.30 At end-Apr, DBS Group Holdings’ (DBS) management guided for 2019 loan growth in the mid-single digits. Hence, we believe business loans expansion could more than offset the weak housing mortgage trend and expect DBS to record a 1% q-o-q loan expansion for 2Q19. In 2Q19, the 3-month SIBOR averaged 1.98% which is higher than 1.92% in the previous quarter. This is positive for DBS’s net interest margin (NIM) and we believe the group’s 2Q19 NIM could climb marginally from 1Q19’s 1.88%. Following US Fed chair Jerome Powell’s comments pointing towards a rate cut at the next meeting at end-Jul, we lowered both 2020F and 2021F earnings marginally by 1%. Likewise, our long-term ROE assumption is also lowered to 13.6%. Nevertheless, DBS

DBS bank share price fighting dragons and tigers
It has been a gut wrenching ride for investors as DBS bank share price went into a tailspin following the release of Q1FY2019 financial results on 29 April 2019. During the media briefing, CEO Piyush Gupta revealed that mortgage growth for FY2018 was under $2 billion, vis-à-vis growth of $4 billion in the year before FY2018. The chilling revelation knocked the wind out of DBS bank share price. On 27 April 2019, DBS bank share price had hit a high of $28.40 but investors were spooked by the bank’s dismay housing loan performance. The data confirmed investors’ worst fear – that DBS’ loan portfolio will be hit by the 2018 property cooling measures. Since that fateful day, DBS bank share price plummeted from $28.40 to a low of $24 on 3 June 2019. The mayhem prompted management to tak

DBS share price mauled by violent forces
What a brutal decline! DBS share price suffered a devastating 15% decline in the month of May. For sure, investors would love to see the back of May as DBS share price had one of the most terrible forms. Nonetheless, it should be highlighted that DBS share price is not alone in the carnage. Fellow competitors, OCBC and UOB suffered the same fate as well. Apparently, the big boys decided to show hand after the release of a stellar Q1FY2019. On the surface, this is considered puzzling because DBS had actually produced a good financial performance. In view of this, it is only logically that DBS share price continued to climb. It is not unreasonable to assume that the solid results would fuel the bullish form of the DBS share price, which surged from $24 in January 2019 to $28.40 in end of Apr
