The Week Ahead: India Growth Set To Slow
A second estimate of America’s GDP for the first quarter is expected to confirm that the country grew at an annualised rate of 3.2%. In the first three months of the year, growth was supported by personal consumption expenditure and private investment. Whilst personal spending was strong in the first quarter, it could have started coming off the boil since then. April personal spending could show that growth slowed to 0.1% from 0.9% in March. A couple pf purchasing managers indices is expected to indicate that China’s manufacturing and non-manufacturing sectors continue to grow. In April, the NBS Manufacturing PMI unexpectedly fell to 50.1, whilst the NBS non-manufacturing PMI dropped to 54.3. But both indices are still above 50, which could indicate expansion.

3 Risks to Know About Eagle Hospitality Trust
Eagle Hospitality Trust closed its initial public offering (IPO) on 22 May 2019. The trust, which owns 18 hotels across seven states in the United States, has set its IPO price at US$0.78 per stapled security. At this price, it has a distribution yield of around 8.2%, an attractive proposition, compared to the other hospitality trusts in the market, which average around 6%. But the yield is just one aspect of looking at a real estate investment trust (REIT). There are other factors to consider such as risk factors, gearing, and management incentives. In this article, I will take a look at some of the key risks that investors of Eagle Hospitality Trust should be aware of.

China’s Healthcare Sector Growth Is Just What the Doctor Ordered
China is home to one of the world’s largest healthcare industries. With total healthcare expenditures reaching US$594 billion in 2015, the Asian country was the world’s second-biggest healthcare market. By 2020, China’s total healthcare expenditure is expected to hit US$1.1 trillion. What are some of the driving factors in the growth of the healthcare sector in China, and how can investors benefit from the healthcare boom? Aging population It might be surprising to know that China has an aging population. According to the China Statistics Yearbook, people over 65, numbering at 130 million, accounted for nearly 10% of the country’s population in 2013, up from 7.6% in 2004. By 2053, it is expected that seniors will make up 35% of the total population. Source: Bloomberg data (as of 3

An Overview of Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited’s Track Record in Growing Its Business
Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited (SGX: O39), or OCBC, is one of the three main local banks listed in Singapore. 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. It may therefore be useful to consider this quick overview of OCBC’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): Source: OCBC 2018 Annual Report Total income increased from S$8.34 billion to S$9.70 billion, up by 16.3% during the period.

Should Dividend Investors Chase High Yields or Fast-Growing Payouts?
As a long-term investor, the logic of investing for dividends seems obvious to me. You invest in dividend stocks to receive growth and an income stream (which in Singapore is tax-free) in return. However, what may be less obvious is that investors have two options when it comes to dividends; companies that have higher dividend yields but stable payouts or ones that have lower dividend yields but fast-growing payouts. The key question, then, is which one should dividend investors pursue? Age influences style My answer would be, it depends on your age. Retirees, or those who are nearing retirement, will naturally gravitate towards stable, higher-yielding stocks including REITs. Given their regular income streams, it’s understandable that a higher return – in terms of the absolute dividen

How is OCBC’s Business Being Improved by Artificial Intelligence?
We are living in an ever-changing business environment. On a daily basis, we read about how technological advancements have enabled start-ups to challenge incumbents, usually by providing better products/services or at materially lower prices. One of those major technological trends disrupting our existing economy now is Artificial Intelligence (AI), or better known as AI. We have all heard about how AI is going to replace our jobs, or how it will eliminate big and slow-moving incumbents. Yet, existing players are not standing still and are incorporating AI into their businesses to improve their competitiveness. A perfect example of this is Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited (SGX: O39), one of the three main local banks listed in Singapore, which has utilised AI to improve its business.

SI Research: Following The Big Boys
Institutional investors are organizations that manage large pools of money – including mutual funds, pension funds, banks, insurance companies or hedge funds – and unlike retail investors, they are the ones which have the financial muscles and positions often large enough to dictate the direction of the markets. As William O’Neil, founder of Investor’s Business Daily and author of best-seller “How to Make Money in Stocks” wrote in his book, “It takes big demand to push up prices, and by far the biggest source of demand for stocks is institutional investors. These large investors account for the lion’s share of each day’s market activity.” Hence, savvy investors regularly look at the funds flow of institutional investors, or often referred to as the “smart money”
