LionGlobal Investors Sets A New, Important Benchmark For Singapore Investors
It’s been a debate that has been going on for the last 30 years, but yesterday marked the day which Lion Global Investors (LGI) believes that it has cracked the code. The debate in the media, according to LGI CEO Gerard Lee, is often about active versus passive funds. However, Lee believes that the real discussion should about high-cost funds versus low-cost funds. LGI launched the LionGlobal All Seasons Fund yesterday, in what it calls a very low-cost fund that is simple and accessible for all investors. With a total expense ratio of 0.5% per annum, LGI is setting a new benchmark for unit trusts and funds alike. Cost Matters (A Lot) “The miracle of compounding returns is overwhelmed by the tyranny of compounding costs.” – Vanguard founder John Bogle As a quick background, LG

2 Good Reasons To Like Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited’s Stock Now

These 3 Blue-Chip Companies Repurchased Their Shares This Week
Well-renowned investor, Warren Buffett, is a huge advocate of businesses buying back their shares. He believes that share buybacks can increase shareholder value if done for the right reasons. On that note, let’s check out three blue-chips that have repurchased their shares thus far during the week, as of market open today. Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp 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.

7 Blue-Chip Stocks That Might Be Affected By The New Property Cooling Measures
Last Thursday, the Singapore government made a surprise announcement that it is increasing the buyer stamp duty for private properties and tightening the loan-to-value limits. This comes as private property prices have risen to a four-year high after a frenzy of collective sales. These new regulations will not only affect property prices, but have also impact on some companies listed on the stock market. Here’s a quick list of stocks represented in the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) that might be affected. Property stocks Perhaps the biggest hit will be the property stocks that have residential development projects in Singapore. The new regulations will affect demand for residential property in Singapore and in turn, affect prices. Already, property developers have been courting home bu

Is There Value In Singapore-Listed Banks After Falling More Than 10%?
In Singapore, the three major listed banks are DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05), Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited (SGX: O39) and United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11). Since their respective share price peaks seen in late-April or early-May, each of the firm’s shares have fallen at least 10%, as of the close on Friday (6 July). On Friday itself, DBS lost 2.6%, OCBC dropped 2.3%, while UOB fell 3.1% due to additional property cooling measures implemented by the Singapore government. It is expected that the latest cooling measures will put a dent in the growth of home loans. Even though the trio is not doing well in terms of their share prices in the short-term, there is potential for them to do well in the longer term due to rising interest rates. As such, investors would be

Institutional Investors Have Been Selling These 3 Blue Chip Stocks
There are many ways to find investment ideas. Some useful ways are to screen for stocks or to look at a list of stocks near their 52-week lows to sieve out potential bargains. Studying what institutional investors have been buying or selling is another avenue. Institutional investors are typically large investment organisations, such as hedge funds, mutual funds, unit trust companies, sovereign wealth funds, insurance companies and so on. These investors tend to possess vastly greater resources than individual investors like you and me when researching stocks. Hence, it may be useful to keep a close eye on what they are doing, as a way to generate ideas.

Singapore’s Stock Market Correction is Here: What Investors Should Do Now
Shares of property developers fell sharply after the Singapore government announced new measures to cool down a heated property market. The new set of rules include higher stamp duties and tighter requirements around the loan-to-value limits on residential property purchases. Before the implementation, the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) had warned of “euphoria” and “excessive exuberance” in the property market. As of 10:45 am today, shares of City Developments Limited (SGX: C09) and UOL Group Limited (SGX: U14) had fallen 15.8% and 12.5%, respectively. CapitaLand Limited‘s (SGX: C31) shares also dived 4.1%.

3 Blue-Chip 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 Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) companies picked at random that have repurchased their shares thus far during the week, as of market open today.

3 Constituent Stocks With 20% Upside Potential Or More
From the high of 3,615 on 2 May to 2 July, the Straits Times Index (STI) tumbled 10.4% to 3238.94 on fears of rising interest rate and the ongoing trade war. In view of the above, UOBKH believes that the STI may head towards 3,100 at a worst-case scenario. Despite the recent pullback, UOBKH remains optimistic that the local bourse would trend higher in the 2H18 and estimates STI to end the year at 3,270 level. There are 15 constituent stocks have underperformed the STI. Most stocks have been oversold and this provides tactical trading opportunity for patient investors.

What Investors Should Know About Share Buybacks By Singapore Stocks In June 2018
A company can do a few things with the free cash flow it churns out every year. It can reinvest the money into its business, use it to pare down debt, pay dividends to shareholders, or buy back its shares. There are a few reasons why companies want to buy back their shares. Some companies might do so to support their share price. By reducing the number of shares outstanding, the earnings per share will increase. This, in turn, causes the price-to-earnings ratio to fall due to a larger denominator. The share price should then rise as the market perceives the share price to be cheaper than before the repurchase. In June this year, 74.6 million shares were repurchased by 33 companies for a total amount of S$174 million, according to a recent report by Singapore Exchange Limited (SGX: S68). Th

Which Singapore-Listed Bank Is Cheaper Than The Market Currently?
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 trio makes up close to 42% of the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) and are loved by many investors, due to their relatively stable businesses. However, of late, the bank stocks have not done well. This is most likely due to the short-term pessimism surrounding global markets. Given the recent poor share price performances, I thought it would be interesting to see which bank is still cheap as compared to the SPDR STI ETF (SGX: ES3), which is an exchange-traded fund that can be used as a proxy for the STI.

Rising Bond Yields And Impacts On Local Banks
The increase in interest rates led by the Federal Reserve signals a generally healthy economy which should bode well with the banking sector. The current environment is still encouraging for investments as well as consumption. This would lead to growing needs for more loans to finance spending. Rising Bond Yields Government bonds have seen an increase in yield in many countries due to changes happening in the US. Firstly, as the US passed its historic tax cuts to lower corporate tax rate from 35 percent to the current 21 percent, the US government would experience a shortfall in government revenue which would burgeon its already-existing budget deficit. In turn, the US government would need to issue more debt to finance spendings. In addition, trade woes between US and China, is causing

10 Things You Need To Know About The New Astrea IV Bonds Before Investing
Bonds have traditionally been viewed as less volatile investments, paying out regular income over a fixed period of time. This characteristic also makes them a useful investment for retirees to continue receiving visible cash flows for their daily living requirements. Of course, investors who prefer less uncertainty in price fluctuation will also be drawn to bond investments. In fact, earlier this month, Temasek Holdings CEO Ho Ching described the upcoming Astrea IV PE Bonds as a good “way to grow (our) retirement nest egg”. Unlike most bonds, the Astrea IV PE Bonds will be the first-of-its-kind allowing retail investors to access the private equity investment class that is usually exclusive to high net worth individuals, large financial institutions and funds.
