These 3 Companies Are Trading Close To Their 52-Week Low
I’m a value investor. As such, I like to search for companies that are trading at low valuations. A list of stocks that are near their respective 52-week lows is a good place to start my search for a good reason. These are the stocks that are either unloved or beaten down by the market. However, some of these stocks could turn out to be bargains compared to their actual economic worth. That’s because market participants can at times react too negatively to certain companies that have sound long-term prospects but have experienced some short-term stumbles. I often screen for stocks that are trading near their 52-week lows around once every week. There are many different stocks that pop up on my screen each time I run it. With that in mind, here are three companies that have turned u

Value Emerging For European Stocks
In the midst of an anticipated European economy slowdown, along with the tussle over the terms of UK’s exit from the European Union (EU) in March 2019, the ongoing uncertainties over Italy’s budget deficit woes, and the US-China trade tensions, many investors are questioning where are the value or so-called ‘safe-haven’ equities one can turn to. Performance of European Stoxx 600 Index Source: Stockcharts.com (26 October 2018) The above chart shows the one-year daily chart of the STOXX 600 Index. At the last close on 26 October 2018, the index is firmly in correction territory after falling below the three exponential moving averages (50-, 100-, and 200-day).

STI Regains Foothold Above 3,000
The Wall Street extended its rebound on the back of oversold conditions and solid corporate earnings, after sharp selloff of stocks last week. Adding on to investors’ woes, Trump had earlier threatened to impose tariffs on all remaining Chinese imports if talks next month with Beijing during the G20 summit failed to yield any meaningful results to ease the trade frictions. In a U-turn, the mercurial President then changed tack when he said that he held “very good conversations with Xi”. Over the last two weeks, Dow Jones Industrial Average remained relatively unchanged closing at 25,380.74. Likewise, the China market moved higher despite October PMI coming in below expectation at 50.2. Nonetheless, rising yields and persisting RMB weakness continued to pressure the stock market. Mean

The Straits Times Index Slumped 3% for the Week, Hitting a Low Last Seen in January 2017
The local stock market bellwether, the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI), slipped 3% or 90 points for the week to close at 2,972 on Friday. Almost all of 2017’s and 2018’s index gains have been wiped off thus far. The index last ended at around this level in early 2017. Of the 30 index components, 21 were in the red, while the remaining nine were in the green. The biggest loser of the STI was Keppel Corporation Limited (SGX: BN4); the conglomerate’s shares tumbled 8.1% to S$6.10. Keppel Corp announced its earnings for the third quarter of 2018 last week. The conglomerate saw huge declines of over 14% each in its top-line and bottom-line. To know more about the latest financial results, you can check out the earnings coverage here.

The Week Ahead: UOB, Venture and Sembcorp Industries
Some solid numbers from United Overseas Bank (SGX: U11) has set the bar for Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation (SGX: O39), which is pencilled in for third-quarter numbers next week. In August, OCBC said second-quarter profits jumped 16% to S$1.21 billion. But it warned that the operating environment is becoming increasingly challenging. It also said that it was watchful of the severe implications to the global economy and financial markets from the escalating trade and political tensions. Venture Corporation (SGX: V03) surprised the market last time with a 40% jump in second-quarter profits. The electronics manufacturer also caught the market off guard with the announcement of an interim dividend. It typically only pays one dividend at the end of the year. But in its August announcement

The Weekly Nibble: Valuation of the Singapore Stock Market
Here are three of the most popular articles that have appeared on The Motley Fool Singapore’s website this week. How Cheap Is the Singapore Stock Market After the Market Sell-Off Last Week? Last week, Singapore’s stock market benchmark, the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI), fell by 141 points, or 4.4%. On Thursday (11 October) alone, the index declined by 2.7%. In this article, I looked at how cheap the local stock market was, as of 12 October 2018, using two different methods. The first one involved a comparison of the current price-to-earnings (PE) ratio of the Straits Times Index with its historical high, low, and average PE ratios. The second method involved looking at the number of net-net stocks available on the Singapore stock market. Here Are 3 REITs With High Distribution

5 things to know before you invest in the Phillip SING Income ETF
A year ago, Phillip Capital Management, along with Lion Global Investors, launched the Lion-Phillip S-REIT ETF. The ETF aimed to give investors a way to invest in a diversified basket of Singapore REITs (S-REITs) which paid a steady stream of distributions. (At the moment, the average distribution yield for S-REITs is 6.8%.) The ETF was met with a largely positive response from the market – Lion Global Investors and Phillip Capital Management initially aimed to raise S$40-50 million but exceeded their target when the fund raised over S$100 million last October. Capitalizing on the Singapore market’s appetite for yield, Phillip Capital Management has now launched the Phillip SING Income ETF. The initial offer period for the ETF will close at 11:00 a.m. on 19 October 2018 before its list

These 3 Blue-Chips’ Share Prices Have Fallen By More Than 20% From Their 52-Week Highs
Warren Buffett once said that as an investor, it is important to be “fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.” The idea is simple. When everyone is buying shares in a company, it’s unlikely that the company’s shares will be a good bargain. On the other hand, when others are shying away from the shares of a company, we might be able to pick some up at a good price. How can we tell if investors are staying away from a company’s shares? By seeing if it has fallen hard in recent times. In this spirit, here are three blue-chip shares with prices that have declined significantly from their respective highs over the past year: Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited (SGX: O39), Singapore Airlines Ltd  (SGX: C6L), and Keppel Corporation Limited  (SGX: BN4).

Institutional Investors Have Been Selling Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited’s Shares: Here’re 4 Reasons Why You Should Not Panic
Institutional investors – essentially big money managers – have been selling Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited‘s (SGX: O39) shares recently. In September 2018, OCBC, one of Singapore’s banking giants, was among the top 10 shares that saw the highest net sales in dollar value by institutional investors during the month. The institutional selling statistic may induce some fear toward OCBC among retail investors. After all, institutional investors tend to possess vastly greater resources than individual investors like you and me when researching stocks. But, there are good reasons why we should not be concerned with OCBC despite the recent sales of the bank’s shares by institutional investors.

Which Singapore Bank Share Is A Better Dividend Investment?
Right now, Singapore’s three major bank shares – DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05), Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited (SGX: O39), and United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11) – have pretty attractive dividend yields. According to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence, DBS, OCBC, and UOB currently have dividend yields of 4.9%, 3.8%, and 4.0%, respectively. I thought it’ll be interesting to find out which of the three banks is the better dividend investment. There is no easy answer, since we can’t be certain about the future. But, we can still get some useful insights by studying the dividend track record of the banks, since their past actions can help us form some expectations for what lies ahead.

The Markets Are Falling, But Stay Calm
The markets are ugly. Overnight, the S&P 500 (^GSPC) – a major market index in the US – fell by 3.3%. According to some market commentators, this has caused Asian markets to fall hard too. Singapore’s Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) is currently down by 2.6% from yesterday’s close at the time of writing, Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index (^HSI) has slipped by 3.4%, while Japan’s Nikkei 225 (^N225) has fallen by 4.0%. It’s easy to panic in a time like this. But it is in times like these that we have to keep a level keel – otherwise we’ll fall prey to our emotions and commit unnecessary investing mistakes. One of the best ways we can stave off panic is to look back at history. Look at how the market has done in the past to get to where we are today. Turns out, lar

Which Singapore-Listed Bank Is the Best Dividend Share?
Banks in Singapore have a marvellous track record of paying out dividends each year. Even during the Great Financial Crisis in 2008/2009, when many financial institutions had to be bailed out, the three major banks in Singapore still managed to pay out dividends to shareholders. Their consistency and reliability make them great dividend stocks to own. With that, here’s a quick comparison on which bank could make the best income investment. Dividend yield The dividend yield is a function of the amount of dividends a shareholder can collect against the price of the stock. The table below outlines the current dividend yield of DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05), Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited (SGX: O39) and United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11), as of 8 October 2018.

What Investors Should Know About Share Buybacks by Singapore-Listed Companies in September 2018
Legendary investor Warren Buffett is a huge advocate of companies buying back shares – if done for the right reasons. And that is, if the company’s shares are undervalued, and the reinvestment opportunities for the business are not as appealing. On that note, last month, 35 companies in Singapore’s stock market repurchased 32.4 million shares for a total amount of S$93.6 million, according to a report released by Singapore Exchange Limited (SGX: S68) recently. The September buyback level was 62% lower from August’s buyback amount of S$245 million, which was a 35-month record. In August, the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) fell by 3.2% while in September, the index rose 1.4%. Share buybacks tend to increase when the stock market falls, and vice versa.
