As such, the prevailing view is that the shares of these companies tend to act as a hedge in a downward market. Given the defensive nature of their business, it is not surprising to see that most of these companies trade at high valuations. As investors, we don’t want to pay an excessive price for any share we invest in. Thus it might be useful to get a quick overview of the valuation of prominent food & beverage-related companies in Singapore’s stock market. Here, we will compare the valuations of three major companies in the space, namely Thai Beverage Public Company Limited (SGX: Y92), Wilmar International Limited (SGX: F34), and Yeo H

2 Rebound Plays For Plantation Stocks
Major Singapore plantations, namely Wilmar International, First Resources and Bumitama Agri posted stronger than expected results for 2Q18. The main attributes for the stronger results were the higher downstream margins and higher external fruit intake. This is in contrast with their peers which experienced weaker downstream margins. The strong performance seen in 2Q18 is expected to continue into 3Q18 as the fresh fruit bunches (FFB) yield begins to improve. Companies with downstream exposure are expected to perform better on the back of higher utilisation rate, better pricing power for refiners and higher biodiesel sales volume.

The Week Ahead: Thai Beverage, Wilmar and Golden Agri-Resources
The curtain will come down on the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) earnings season for the second quarter next week. There are just three laggards left to report. It wasn’t the best of quarters when Thai Beverage Public Company (SGX: Y92) reported in May. Earnings for the second three months fell 3.2% because of a decrease in profits at its beer business and a one-off expense for its acquisition of Havi Logistics. The brewer and distiller said that Thailand’s 2% excise tax on liquor was marginal, though. Wilmar International (SGX: F34) was also on the ropes in May.

Understanding conglomerates – A simple walkthrough
According to, a conglomerate is … “A corporation that is made up of a number of different, seemingly unrelated businesses. In a conglomerate, one company owns a controlling stake in a number of smaller companies, which conduct business separately. Each of a conglomerate’s subsidiary businesses runs independently of the other business divisions, but the subsidiaries’ management reports to senior management at the parent company.” Do you currently own shares in a conglomerate, or are you intending to invest in one?
