Letter to Batch 10 of the Early Retirement Masterclass
Dear Students of Batch 10,It’s been a great honour and privilege to be able to conduct a 2-Day Early Retirement Workshop for you. The investment decisions made by Batch 10 was very unique compared to the decisions made by previous batches, and this goes to show how much a portfolio can be moulded by the personalities of the cohort in spite of the fact that the underlying stock strategies have not changed too much from last month. For this masterclass, there are two interesting developments that deviated from the norm of previous batches of students:The first development is that the class rejected almost all the banks that have been shortlisted by the quantitative model. Right until Batch 9, banks were a hot favourite of the students of this program so much so that I will ordinarily force

4 Banking Accounts In Singapore With No Monthly Fall-Below Fees You Should Know About
A bank account is essential for helping us manage our monies. We can pay our bills with it, transfer funds to others, keep cash for contingencies that we can conveniently access from an ATM network, and more. However, many bank accounts in Singapore have a minimum average balance (usually between $500 to as high as $3,000) that has to be maintained in the account each month. If the balance is not met, a monthly fall-below fee of between $2 and $5 will be imposed. For those who don’t want to be penalised because they didn’t pay attention to their monthly balances or are tight on cashflow, here are 4 bank accounts that do not come with fall-below fees: Bank Account Main Features At A Glance Standard Chartered SuperSalary – Comes with free cheque book – Enjoy

3 Utility Stocks That Delivered Average Year-to-Date Total Returns of 20%
Utility companies provide electricity, gas, or water. Such companies are usually heavily regulated as they provide an essential good to the general public. Another striking feature of such companies is that they usually have just one plant or power station serving one region, providing them with monopoly power. This is another reason they are regulated — to prevent supernormal profits from accruing due to indiscriminate pricing. Investors often gravitate towards utility stocks for stability and peace of mind. As such businesses provide an essential good and are also regulated, this means their cash flows and dividends are predictable and stable (once the asset has been constructed and is up and running). During times of economic stress, utilities are viewed as safe havens as they ar

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)?

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

A Better Way To Pay Your AXS Bills? Here’s Why The Quiet Addition Of GrabPay Is Great News For AXS Users
Without any doubt, AXS is one of the most widely-used bill payment platforms in Singapore. Starting with introduction of the standalone AXS Station kiosks in 2001, AXS has now expanded its offerings with both online and mobile app (m-Station) payment. With the AXS m-Station app, Singaporeans can now pay their bills or fines, including those from government agencies or public institutions, right at the convenience of their smartphones anytime and anywhere. Unlike the kiosk which accepts only bank ATM cards, AXS m-Station provides multiple payment modes, such as PayLah, eNETS and credit cards. While the credit card option seems to be attractive, it comes with its own limitations. For instance, only credit cards from Citibank, DBS/POSB, UOB, OCBC banks and Diners Club, as well as MasterCard

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

An Investor’s Overview of DBS Group’s Track Record in Growing Its Business
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. One of the things I like to do when analysing a company is to study its track record. The past is no guarantee of the future. But historical information is the most reliable thing we can use as our basis to forecast what lies ahead. In light of that, let’s have a quick overview of DBS Group’s historical business growth. The table below is a snapshot of the company’s important financial metrics from FY2014 (financial year ended 31 December 2014) to FY2018 (financial year ended 31 December 2018).

Singapore’s Digital Bank Licence Applications: Who Are the Contenders?

Five licences are up for grabs from non-bank players — two for digital full-fledged banks and three for restricted digital banks. Interested parties have until 31 December 2019 to submit their applications. MAS will announce the successful applicants in mid-2020, and the digital banks are to commence business by mid-2021.

DBS, OCBC and UOB: Are Banks’ Dividends Sustainable? – Part 1
Over the last two to three years, the Singapore-listed trio of banks – DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05), Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp. Limited (SGX: O39) and United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11) – have all increased their dividends at an astonishing rate with yields currently between 4.2-4.9%. As a rather conservative investor and one who likes to see my income grow at a steady and stable pace, I have been asking myself if the bank’s dividends are sustainable. That means, would the banks have to suddenly cut their dividends if business sentiment suddenly turns or are they well protected? To find out I will be looking at a few different metrics which can help to determine the bank’s health over a couple of articles. In this first installment, I will be focusing on t

Better Buy: Singapore Banks vs. China Banks
Banks in Singapore are regarded as some of the best dividend shares in Singapore. The trio of Singapore-listed banks, DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05), United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11) and Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp. Limited (SGX: O39) have shown remarkable consistency in dividend payments and growing their book value per share. They each generate a decent average return on equity of slightly more than 10% while maintaining solid financial standings. But how do our local banks compare against their overseas peers? With that in mind, I did a quick comparison between Hong Kong-listed China banks and Singapore banks. Here are the results.

2 Stable Dividend Stocks to Consider During a Market Downturn
As investors, we should try to benefit from the opportunities the market offers us. One of which, in my opinion, is to buy stocks cheaply during a market downturn. Investors shouldn’t buy just any cheap stock; the idea is to focus on good companies with solid track records, and hold those stocks over the long term (in the short run, anything can happen). Let’s look at two solid dividend stocks investors can consider buying during such times. Singapore Exchange First up is Singapore Exchange Limited (SGX: S68) or SGX. For those unfamiliar with the company, SGX is the only stock exchange in Singapore. There are a few reasons to keep SGX under your watch. For starters, it’s the only stock exchange in Singapore, so its services will always be needed as long as the equity mar
