3 Interesting Things That You Might Have Missed Out
Good afternoon folks. One of the few things that I like to do is to catch up or recap on some important news from recent times. So, what are some of the interesting articles from end July to early August? 1. First of all, my colleague Jeremy China shared with us some important things he looks at when analyzing a bank. This includes how to assess a bank’s balance sheet here, how to value a stock here and how to analyze a bank’s profitability here. If you are an investor or potential investor looking at banks like DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05), United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11) and Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited (SGX: O39), it will be useful to read his articles above. 2. As investors, we try to learn from great investors like Warren Buffet to improve our investing skills.

Quick Review Of Singapore Banks & Research Houses’ Views
With the expectations of rising interesting rates and an improving economy on the backdrop, Phillip Securities Research (PS) expects Singapore banks’ performance to pick up again. Previously, PS gave our local banking sector an Underweight call. As better loans volume and rate dynamics are expected to improve, PS decided to upgrade the sector as a whole to Neutral. We look at some considerations PS currently has and which bank deserves some attention. Wealth management DBS and OCBC banks saw their wealth management arms grew while UOB is trailing behind its two peers. DBS’s niche in the upper affluent market segment, in PS’s view, puts the bank in a leading position compared to OCBC and UOB. Liquidity coverage ratio Not all is rosy for our local banks, though, of course. Liquidity re

Singapore’s ePayments Space: 13 Key Numbers Investors Should Know
Electronic payment or ePayment has become a hot topic of discussion. The space received a boost from Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong during his National Day Rally. During his speech, he pointed out that Singapore is trailing China in implementing a widely used electronic means of payment. To learn more, I looked up several articles from sgsme.sg (here and here) and The Edge Singapore (here) for context. With that in mind, here are 13 figures that investors might want to sit up and take notice: Nets reported that its transactions totalled $24 billion in 2016, up from $23 billion in 2015 and $21 billion in 2014. The payment system operator said that it has 100,000 Nets acceptance points in total with 30,000 points which are ready for digital payments. Nets also claimed that it had the larg

DBS Group Holdings Ltd Is Up by More Than 30% In The Last 12 Months. Is It Expensive Now?
DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05) or DBS for short, is one of the three major banks based in Singapore, along with United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11) and Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited (SGX: O39). In the last 12 months, the bank’s market value has gained more than 30%. Given the recent price appreciation, is the bank’s valuation expensive now? Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to this since there are many ways to look at valuation. Still, we will try to answer the above question by comparing DBS Group’s current valuation to the market through three perspectives, namely price-to-book, price-to-earnings and dividend yield. Here, the proxy that we will use as the market’s average valuation is the SPDR Straits Times Index ETF. Price to book ratio (P/B) *Source: Go

Company Share Buybacks for the 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 thus far this week. 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 financ

3 Companies That Have Bought Back Their Shares This Week
Warren Buffett is someone who strongly encourages companies to buy back their shares if the conditions are right. In his 1984 Letter to Shareholders, he opined, “When companies with outstanding businesses and comfortable financial positions find their shares selling far below intrinsic value in the marketplace, no alternative action can benefit shareholders as surely as repurchases.” On that note, let’s take a look at three companies picked at random that have repurchased their shares 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 group in Southeast Asia by assets.

Which SG Banks Should Be In Your Portfolio?
Banks did not have the best performance in August as the three local banks fell by an average of 5.5% in the month of August. Among the three local banks, DBS saw its share price fall the most as it ended the month down 8.2%. Should SG banks still feature in your portfolio given their poor performance in August? If the answer is yes, which of the SG banks should you be putting your money to? Optimistic loan growth In the last quarter, SG banks managed to grow loans portfolio by 6.0% to 11% year-on-year across countries and industries. As Singapore heads towards an improved economic outlook, MBKE Research foresees more optimism on banks’ lending opportunities.

The Five Most Important Blue Chips In The Straits Times Index
The Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) is widely regarded as the market barometer of the Singapore stock market. So, it might be worth taking time to understand the inner workings of the Straits Times Index. To facilitate this study, we can take a look at this SGX report.

With that in mind, we will be looking at the companies with the highest projected weighting in the index after Jardine Strategic Holdings makes its entry. Here, then, are the five most influential companies: 1. The top three spots are occupied by DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05), Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Ltd (SGX: O39) and United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11).

Portfolio Update August 2017
August has been a very busy month for me. I went overseas twice, one for holiday and the other trip was sort of volunteer work, something to do with my hobby. Before I realize it, the month has come to the end.There were some global and regional events in the month - North Korea fired a missile over Japan, China and India standoff at the border, etc, but the global stock market did not seem to be affected by them badly.The STI did not do well this month. Some analyst said that Singapore stock market look bearish at this moment. I feel that as the index has gone up more than 13% year to date, a certain pull back is quite natural and should not be a big issue. As at today, STI stood at 3,277.26, down 53.49 points, or 1.61% from last month. My portfolio did better than the index. Its value dr

China’s Massive One Belt One Road Project: 4 Key Insights from Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited
You can’t say that China is short on ambition. China’s One Belt One Road (OBOR) project is a massive infrastructure program that will stretch into 60 countries in Africa, Asia and Europe. It will cover 60% of the world’s population and represent one-third of the world’s gross domestic product. Banks in Singapore, like Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited (SGX: O39), could stand to benefit from the programme. Here’re four key things to know: 1.

Which Singapore-Listed Bank Is Cheaper Than the Market Now?
The three listed banks in Singapore are DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05), Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited (SGX: O39) and United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11). The banks make up close to 37% of the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) and are loved by many Singaporean investors due to their resilience. Therefore, it is not surprising that each of the bank’s shares have gained more than 15% year-to-date while the STI has only gone up around 13% during the same time frame. Given the strong lead up this year, I thought it would be interesting to see which bank is still valued lower than the STI ETF (SGX: ES3), an exchange traded fund which can be taken as a proxy for the STI. The table below shows the comparison of the banks against the STI ETF (the best values are in bold): In terms

How Did SG Blue Chips Perform In Q2? (Part 1)
So how did STI’s blue chips performed in Q2? We gather various analyst reviews on the Q2 results of blue chips to give investors a summary of how blue chips performed in Q2. In part one of this two-part series, we single out the performance of SIA, OCBC, SGX, Starhub and Genting. 1. Singapore Airlines (SIA) Following Singapore Airlines Limited’s (SGX: C6L) surprising net loss last year, SIA managed to swing around its core net loss to register core net profit of $43 million in Q2 (SIA’s 1QFY18). SIA’s cargo business recovered from a loss of $34 million to a profit of $6 million. SIA’s associate losses also dropped from $48 million to just $1 million.
