SPH Restructures Its Media Business: What Does This Mean For Shareholders And Potential Investors?
On May 6th, Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) officially threw in the towel in its efforts to salvage the profitability of its languishing media business. It announced it will carve out the media assets into a not-for-profit company (termed a CLG, or company limited by guarantee), pending shareholders’ approval. The announcement rocked professionals within the media and communications industry because it signalled an uncertain future for cherished journalism brands such as The Straits Times, Business Times and Lianhe Zaobao. The Straits Times, in particular, is known as the nation’s newspaper of record, with a 176-year history and a reputation as a trusted voice for news of the region. Since its listing on the Singapore Stock Exchange (SGX) in 1984 – the same year SPH was formed – the

Virus resurgence and Wall St’s strength make for a week of two halves
The STI lost 18 points or 0.5% at 3,200.26 in a week of two halves; The first half was marked by selling after virus resurgence worries; The second half saw a rebound as Wall St rose to record highs; US market’s record came despite disappointing jobs report; In local news, SPH’s restructuring plan stole the headlines; UOB’s results were better than expected; Tighter curbs – who benefits and who doesn’t? Virus worries vs Wall St’s strength mean first a fall, then a rebound The sudden increase in COVID-19 cases around the world last week brought pressure to bear on the local stock market in the first few days.

Singapore Banks Report Card: Share Price And Dividend Yield Performance – DBS (SGX: D05); UOB (SGX: U11); OCBC (SGX: O39)
Singapore prides itself on being a financial hub with access to high-quality banking and finance companies as well as talent within the space. Our local banks – DBS (SGX: D05); UOB (SGX: U11); and OCBC (SGX: O39) – are often cited as among the best, safest, strongest, or most innovative banks in the world as well. Apart from boosting our banking and finance hub credentials, the three local banks are also the three largest companies listed on the Singapore Exchange (SGX). Together, they currently comprise close to 43% of the Straits Times Index (STI) – our local benchmark index. DBS – 17.5% weigtage on STI OCBC – 14.0% weigtage on STI UOB – 11.2% weigtage on STI This means investing in the STI, close to half of our portfolio would be exposed to just the three loc

Equity Portfolios Updates (30 Apr'21)- The Return of Increasing New COVID Clusters And Will It Lead To Another Singapore Lockdown?
 It is worrying when the Singapore government starts to talk about a second circuit breaker is on the table if current measures to tighten the surge in local COVID does not curb it successfully.  Based on current cases, it may get worse over the next few weeks. I am awaiting the release of more findings by the Ministry of Health with regard to how effective is our COVID vaccines and how the virus managed to "break through" doctor and nurses who already got 2 full shots of the vaccines. Is it due to mutant strains whereby current vaccines are no longer effective? There is a high chance that upon the first trading day in May'21, the SGX might see a huge drop in prices due to concerns over a 2nd lockdown. I also think that various government agencies are tightening anti-COVID contro

4 Dividend-Paying ETFs On SGX To Invest For Dividend Income: iShares Barclays USD Asia High Yield Bond Index ETF (O9P); Lion-Phillip S-REIT ETF (CLR); NikkoAM-StraitsTrading Asia ex Japan REIT ETF (CFA/COI); Phillip SING Income ETF (OVQ)
One of the reasons for investing is so that we can enjoy regular income from our investments. While we can invest in high dividend-paying stocks and bonds to earn regular dividend income or coupon payments, it also makes sense to consider investing in dividend-paying ETFs. When we invest in dividend-paying ETFs, we enjoy diversification as our investment is made into a variety of stocks (or bonds), as opposed to having exposure to just a single company. Of course, this doesn’t mean that our investment portfolio is fully protected. Similar to stocks and bonds, the value of ETFs can also go up or down depending on the components that make up the ETF. Unlike investing in growth or value investing, the idea behind dividend investing is to generate a consistent stream of income from our inve

Passive Income Investing: 10 Popular Ways To Generate Passive Income In Singapore And Whether It Is Worth Investing In Them?
Imagine a day where you can sit back and just watch the money roll in. That’s the allure and promise of passive income investing. Unlike growth or value investing, income investing focuses on generating income from your investments. While you may expect a reasonable payout on a regular basis from your passive income investments, you should not expect explosive growth. This is not Tesla or Bitcoin which can bring you multi-bagger returns (and volatility). Instead, the key to passive income is building it to a sufficient amount by continuously adding to it and reinvesting all the returns until a point that we accumulate enough to be able to survive an entire year on the annual returns of our passive income investment. Here are 10 popular ways you can generate passive income in Singapore. R

How to open a brokerage account in Singapore and choose the right broker (updated 2021)
We get emails time to time from readers who are new to investing about how to open a brokerage account in Singapore. Most of time, we simply point them to our stockbroker (who basically sets everything up for them). But we realised there are other people who may also be interested in knowing how to open a brokerage account — and the things that go into choosing the right brokerage — but just haven’t gotten around to asking how it’s done. So we decided to do a quick, simple guide on how to open a brokerage account for those who need a little bit of advice. But first things first — before you open a brokerage account, you need to choose a brokerage firm. Singapore brokerage firms are very nearly similar in the fees they charge (S$25) and the facilities they provi

Portfolio Updates (April 2021)
Nasdaq has recovered from its bloodshed months in February and March; however, the rising tide to lift all boats didn’t play out too well. While most of the large cap tech stocks such as Apple and NVIDIA have recovered in my Growth Portfolio, the mid cap stocks, which have no bottom-line, continue to underperform. There haven’t been any new additions in my portfolio other than shares of the ARK Genomic Revolution ETF (ARKG). Cathie Woods, the brain behind Ark Invest, rose to fame last year after predicting Tesla would be a multibagger. The resulting 695% returns in Tesla’s shares made Woods into an investment celebrity overnight, and followers have intently taken her market predictions as gospel. In one of her interviews, she claimed that the next Tesla could come from the genom

OCBC share price to surge with 70% profit jump?
LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP OCBC share price is ready to rock again! In my previous article written on 5 February 2021, I wrote that OCBC share price could remain sluggish if the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS)’s measure on bank share buybacks is firmly set in place. Since that fateful article, the management retaliated by launching a series of shares buybacks. For sure, the slew of share buybacks by OCBC caught me by surprise. Nonetheless, the moves provided good support for the bullish run of OCBC share price. Although the current bullish form of OCBC share price should be attributed mainly to the improving economic conditions, the resumption of the share buybacks will bode well for OCBC share price. In comparison to DBS and UOB, OCBC is considered the most aggressive when it comes to sh

DBS Group share price to test $30 mark?
LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP Will the coming financial result set DBS Group share price on fire? While OCBC share price is on a roll following three consecutive of net profit growth, things had not been so rosy at DBS Group. In third quarter, the bank announced a stunning 22% decline in net profit for 4QFY2020 on a quarter-to-quarter basis. Against this backdrop, DBS Group share price could be at an intriguing cross-road. Unlike OCBC and UOB, DBS Bank should be viewed as a pure-play growth stock. This is because its key businesses are entrenched mainly in banking and wealth management sectors. On the other hand, OCBC and UOB are known to have substantial stakes in non-financial sectors like property development (UOL), stock brokerage (UOB Kay Hian), insurance (Great Eastern), etc. In view of this,

2021 Cost Guide: Singapore Universities’ Tuition Fee Comparison
This article was originally published on 9 July 2018 and updated to reflect the latest fee changes. Additional reporting done by Jorinda Hsu. For some Singaporean parents, having their child is accepted into a local university is a dream come true. As of 2017, about one in three children of each cohort makes it to a local university. Singapore’s public universities are a lot less expensive than private or universities overseas, which could sometimes exceed $500,000. However, unlike during Secondary School or Junior College where many Singaporeans only needed to pay a modest sum for school fees, the costs of local university tuition can run into tens of thousands of dollars yearly even after the MOE Tuition Grant. The cost is not helped by the fact that universities have consiste

Portfolio Updates (March 2021)
 I wrote in my previous post that a stock market correction is imminent, just that I didn’t expect it to happen just right after I published my Portfolio Update. Seems like all eyes are on TLT – iShares 20 Plus Year Treasury Bond ETF now. The bond yield has been steadily rising since Aug 2020 but only started making waves recently. As trust in Covid 19 vaccines are growing, investors in general are betting on an economic recovery and setting expectations on higher inflation rate to come. That means they are expecting higher yield to compensate inflation risk. Higher treasury yield means higher risk-free rate, and that reduces the intrinsic value of growth companies when we apply DCF formula to value stocks. Growth stocks, especially tech stocks which has not shown bottom line grow
