Singapore Banks vs. US Banks: Which Are Cheaper Now?
Local investors will likely be familiar with the three major banks listed in Singapore: DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05), United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11), or UOB, and Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp. Limited (SGX: O39), or OCBC. How cheap are our local bank stocks compared to their peers in the US? Are you overpaying? The price-to-book ratio tells us how much we are paying for every dollar of equity on a company’s books. The ratio is especially useful for stocks that have largely tangible assets, which is the case for most banks. The table below shows the price-to-book ratio of the big three banks in Singapore against a selection of three of the largest US-listed banks.

7 things I learned from the 2019 Brahim’s Holdings AGM
Brahim’s Holdings Berhad (BHB) provides halal inflight catering to 35 international commercial airlines at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), KLIA2, and Penang International Airport. It also operates restaurants and cafes in KLIA and KLIA2 and provides cabin-handling services. On average, it serves 50,000 meals to 200 flights daily. BHB used to solely be in the warehouse and logistics business until it acquired a 51% stake in LSG Sky Chefs — an in-flight caterer and service operator — in 2008, before acquiring the remaining 49% stake in 2012. In March this year, BHB triggered Practice Note 17 (PN17) status after its shareholders’ equity fell below the 25% threshold, which caused its share price to crash 43.9% in one trading day.

7 things I learned from the 2019 OCBC Bank AGM
Banks have always been a favourite among retail investors in Singapore. But with an uncertain global trade outlook and interest rate environment, bank stocks have been trading sideways since the beginning of the year. Hence, I decided to go OCBC Bank’s annual general meeting to gain some insights. Here are seven things I learned from the 2019 OCBC Bank AGM. 1. The purpose of digital transformation is to improve the bank’s customer experience by providing better, faster, and cheaper services. The proportion of retail customers who transact through digital channels has increased over the last five years, from 36% in 2014 to 49% in 2018. Likewise, for business customers, the proportion has increased from 36% to 62% over the same period. Digital retail customers generate two tim

11 things to know about OCBC Bank before you invest (updated 2019)
Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation (OCBC) is the second largest financial services group in Southeast Asia. The bank has built a significant presence in several key markets such as Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and in Greater China. As of 10 June 2019, it is worth S$45.8 billion in market capitalisation. In this article, I’ll bring an update on its latest financial results and its valuation. Here are 11 things to know about OCBC before you invest. 1. Loans and bills receivable has increased by a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.62% over the last 10 years, from S$80.9 billion in 2009 to S$255.2 billion in 2018.

OCBC share price faces lightning and thunder
Apparently, the management of OCBC Bank decided to press the panic button. On 10 May 2019, OCBC announced a set of pretty decent Q1FY2019 results that saw net profits rising 11% to $1.23 billion. Despite the rosy report card, dark clouds loom head for OCBC share price as chilling effect of the property cooling measures is starting to take effect. To rub salt to injury, the issue of the ailing oil and gas sector has returned to haunt OCBC share price yet again. Against this backdrop, management had decided to launch a rescue mission for OCBC share price. To be fair to the management, OCBC had achieved a breakthrough in the latest quarter as net interest margin has increased to 1.76%, up from 1..67% in Q1FY18. Return on equity (ROE) for 1Q19 has also improved to 12.0%, as compared to 11.8% i

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”
