3 Companies That Have Bought Back Their Shares This Week
Warren Buffett is a huge advocate of businesses buying back their shares. He believes that share buybacks can reveal a thing or two about the company’s management. He once said: “What you’d like to do as an investor is hook them up to a machine and run a polygraph to see whether it’s true. Short of a polygraph the best sign of a shareholder-oriented management — assuming its stock is undervalued — is repurchases. A polygraph proxy, that’s what it is.” On that note, let’s check out three companies picked at random that have repurchased their shares so far during the week. 1. Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited (SGX: O39) Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation, or OCBC for short, is the longest established local bank and is the second largest financial services gr

Understanding 1 Crucial Aspect Of Singapore’s Bank Stocks: Management Remuneration
A widely discussed topic in the world of investing today is corporate governance. As the words suggest, it is the concept of how a company is governed. Corporate governance is an important topic due to the agency model that many companies have, whereby the owners (shareholders) and managers are separate groups of people. The separation of the role of owner and manager could result in problems due to the potential conflict of interests between the two parties. For example, shareholders suffer when a company’s business performance is poor, but the managers may still want to be paid a fat salary. Having good corporate governance could help to minimise problems. There are many facets to the issue of corporate governance and I’m not going to cover them all in this article. What I want to do

How 1.95% More Interest on Savings Can Greatly Impact Your Wealth | The DBS Multiplier Account
Why do some of my Millennial friends don’t want to go on 2 free trips to Europe? That is a good question. Being the oldest millennial around, I get to work with a bunch of co-workers that are at least 7-10 years younger than myself. I get to see their spending habits but knowing whether they do save money, or how they build their wealth is another matter altogether. 3 weeks ago we went to the nearby Ghim Moh market to have some cheap yet great food. I took the opportunity to ask one of my co-worker which savings account does he use to maximize his savings. He told me he does not used any special savings account. I was horrified. At first, I thought he is like me. He must invest and these savings are his dry powder to take advantage of market correction. He doesn’t invest. He told me th

StarHub Ltd’s Latest Earnings: What Investors Need to Know
Yesterday, StarHub Ltd (SGX: CC3) announced its third-quarter earnings results. The financial period was from 1 July 2017 to 30 September 2017. The firm is Singapore’s second largest telecommunications company. It has five business segments – Mobile, Pay TV, Broadband, Enterprise Fixed and Sales of Equipment. The first four segments are collectively known as service revenues. With that, here’s a quick rundown of the financial figures from the latest quarter: 1. Total revenue declined 0.8% year-on-year to S$580.4 million, mainly due to lower revenues from Mobile, Pay TV and Broadband services, along with a decrease in sales of equipment. 2. Services revenue was down 0.1% as compared to a year ago, coming in at $545.4 million. 3. Net profit slipped 11.5% to S$76.2 million. 4. Consequ

Portfolio Update 31 October 2017
The month October passed so far, that before I realize it, it is almost gone. I was pretty busy with my work (yes, part time job can be busy too) and other activities. I paid less attention to stock market, partly because it was in a steady uptrend due to good GDP data and corporate earnings results.When market closed today, STI was 154.17 points, or 4.79% higher than a month ago. Some analyst said that there might be some pull back but no sign of crashing. Of course it is up to you to believe that. My portfolio somehow performed less spectacular this month compared to the index. Its value rose only 3.43% for the month. Year-to-date, my stock portfolio value has risen 12%, compared to 17% rise of the STI.I bought some Netlink Trust shares this month. I also received shares from Cache, Mapl

The Week Ahead: Can UOB Outshine OCBC?
Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation (SGX: O39) has delighted with market-beating results. But can United Overseas Bank (SGX: U11) do the same? There are high hopes that it could. In July, UOB posted a 5.5% rise in second-quarter net profits. It also said profits for the first six months by 5.5% to S$1.7 billion. That was driven in part by a 12% improvement in net interest income, while fees and commission income rose 9%. The improvement in the bank’s net interest margin should not be underestimated. At the same time, exposure to the still-troubling oil and gas sector should not be overlooked either. StarHub (SGX: CC3) will also be in the spotlight next week. In August, Singapore’s second-biggest telecom operator posted a 1% drop in second-quarter revenues. But net profits slumped by

Upward Momentum Going Strong
US benchmark Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) pushed through 23,000 driven by strong earnings from tech giants including Amazon, Alphabet, Microsoft and Intel. Early this week President Trump mentioned that he was very close to naming the next Fed chair while the Senate has also approved Republican’s budget bill signifying a major step forward in their tax cut plans. These series of positive news proved very helpful in sustaining the uplift sentiments, as DJIA ended the fortnight gaining 2.5 percent at 23,400.86. Volatility heightened in the Euro zone, with ECB President Mario Draghi unveiling plans to cut the central bank’s bond purchases from 60 billion euros to 30 billion a month starting in January, but also extending the purchases until September next year.

A Breakdown Of Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited’s Loan Portfolio
Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited (SGX: O39) is one of the three main local banks listed in Singapore. As a lender, OCBC is exposed to credit risk, amongst other forms of risk. In simple terms, credit risk is the risk of borrowers defaulting on their loans. Therefore, investors in the bank must have a good understanding of its credit risk. To do so, one must first have a rough idea about the composition of OCBC’s loan portfolio. In this article, I want to breakdown OCBC’s loan portfolio according to both geography and industry. Here’s a table showing the bank’s gross loans and bills receivable (as of 31 December 2016) depending on where the credit risk resides: Source: OCBC 2016 annual report We can see that Singapore was the biggest contributor to OCBC’s loan book in 201

SG Banking Sector Update – Quick Preview Of 3Q17 Earnings
Recently, a local investment expert Buck Tan advised retail investors to pay close watch to local banks’ earnings results for 3Q17.

The Week Ahead: High Expectations For OCBC Results
It’s been “steady as she goes” as far the Singapore earnings season is concerned. Let’s hope we can get more of the same when three more Singapore blue chips step into the spotlight.   Hutchison Port Holdings  (SGX: NS8U) will report third-quarter numbers on Monday. In July the port operator posted a 21% drop in earnings. It also cut the distribution per share from 14 HK cents to 9.5 HK cents. Revenue only fell 1.5%, though. But it was losses at associated companies that did the damage. With global trade picking up, HPH might have better news for income investors.   Ahead of results on Wednesday, Singapore Exchange  (SGX: S68) said it has expand its footprint to the US with the opening of SGX Chicago.
