3 Solid Engineering Companies You Should Consider for Your Portfolio
What would the world be without engineers? Modern societies have been built with architects and engineers working hand in hand to design gleaming, towering skyscrapers and efficient subways. Engineering companies are responsible for advancing society by constructing buildings, highways, roads, and other essential infrastructure. Investors may assume engineering companies are engaged in businesses that are technical and difficult to understand. To some extent, they’re right. However, I assess such companies by looking at both their track records and meaningful contributions to the sectors in which they are strong, as well as looking at their historical financials and margins in order to make my investment decision. Here are three engineering companies investors should consider for th

4 Ways to Find Winning Long-Term Investments
Investors are constantly searching for great investments that can help compound their money over years in order to build up a comfortable retirement nest egg for themselves. The problem lies in identifying companies that consistently have an edge and are able to grow their revenue, profit, and cash flow over the long term. Many companies may outwardly display such characteristics, but the investor has to be mindful of value traps — investments that seem good on the surface but may turn out to be stinkers in the future. It’s important to monitor investments to ensure the original investment thesis continues to be on track and the risks are contained or mitigated. I rely on four methods to find great long-term winners. I believe these four aspects should stand investors in good

4 Things to Like About Companies That Generate Strong Free Cash Flow
There are many financial metrics that matter when investors assess companies for potential investment. Some of these include revenue and profit growth, margins, free cash flow, and dividend yield. I can safely say one of the more important metrics is free cash flow (FCF), as cold, hard cash is the lifeblood of a business. Having more cash is almost always a good thing as it allows companies to have more flexibility in how they operate, and it can also serve as a buffer when tough times arrive. The emphasis on consistent FCF allows investors to sleep well at night and offers companies many options for how to deploy that cash to generate better returns for their investors. Here are four things to like about companies that generate strong FCF. 1. Increasing dividends Companies with a strong

3 Secrets to Constructing a Strong Investment Portfolio
Constructing a strong and effective portfolio is never an easy task, and the investor is responsible for continually reviewing his positions and tweaking them to optimise his capital allocation. Aside from trying to maximise gains from the growth of the companies within the portfolio, the investor also has to be aware of risks and be able to position the portfolio to mitigate them. It can feel like an attempt to juggle ten balls with just two hands! In my years of investing, I have learnt a lot about how to manage my portfolio such that I capitalise on the gains, earn a steady income, and yet, ensure the risks are adequately mitigated. This knowledge was gleaned through an iterative process of learning from mistakes, due diligence on companies, and tweaking individual positions. Here are

4 Signs to Assess If an Economic Downturn Is Imminent
Many companies’ fortunes are inextricably tied to the economy, as they rely on supply chains and consumer demand to power their business activities. Investors who are vigilant should be able to pick out signs of corporate weakness just by observing the financials and metrics and reading up on the management discussion and analyses (MD&A). Here are four clear indicators that can serve investors well as they watch out for red flags impacting the economy. Note that some of these aspects may be company or industry-specific, but if a majority of companies report such attributes, investors can probably conclude that a weakened economy is to blame. 1. Lower profits or profits turning to losses When companies start to report lower year-on-year profits, this is a sign that economic indic

3 Simple Steps to Better Understand a Company’s Business and History
When performing due diligence on a potential investment, it’s important for investors to know what to look for and how to dig up important aspects of a company to study. While the most obvious part of due diligence would be the financials, there also needs to be effort expended in finding out other qualitative aspects of the business, such as acquisition history and how a business reacts to hardship and challenges. It’s easier to illustrate these points using examples, and I will focus on two companies – Singapore Exchange Limited (SGX: S85) and Boustead Singapore Limited (SGX: F5D), also known as SGX and BSL, respectively. These two companies have had their fair share of ups and downs over the years, and represent good examples of how investors should look at their hist

3 Companies With Strong Cash-Generating Abilities
Investors should remember that investing is not always smooth-sailing and that businesses will face constant ups and downs even as they enjoy multi-year growth. As companies report their results on a quarterly basis, there is even more “lumpiness” in revenue and profits due to the timing of recognition of various parcels of work or contracts. The important thing is not to fixate solely on the profit figure, but to also cast a critical eye on the cash flow generation capability of the company. As profits may fluctuate depending on revenue recognition principles, cash flow is generally a better method to assess if a business is doing well. After all, cash represents the lifeblood of the business, and consistent free cash flow (FCF) generation is the hallmark of a great business

What Can Investors Expect from Boustead Singapore Limited for the Rest of 2019?
Boustead Singapore Limited (SGX: F9D), or BSL, is an engineering conglomerate that has four main divisions: Energy-Related Engineering, Real Estate Solutions, Geo-Spatial Technology, and Healthcare Technology. The group was founded in 1828 and is one of the oldest companies listed here. BSL reported a surprisingly good set of earnings recently for its Q1 2020 (the group has a 31 March year-end). The oil and gas business under Energy-Related Engineering finally turned around after suffering from tough challenges over the last few years with the collapse of oil prices. With so many levers within the business, investors may be hard-pressed to understand what the group is planning and what growth drivers can be expected. Here, I’ve broken down BSL’s prospects into several easily-d
