Why Now Is The Best Time To Invest
Many would think that religiously socking money away in the bank is the safest way to grow their wealth. That is far from the truth. With banks giving low-interest rates of around 0.05% on our savings, it is hardly enough to beat inflation. Over the long-term, Singapore’s inflation has averaged 2.6%. Therefore, our money in the bank is getting skimped away by the inflation-monster at a rate of 2.55% each year. Our hard-earned money is far from being “safe” in the bank. Therefore, all of us need to learn to invest for a more comfortable retirement. The longer you can invest for, the more time your money has on its side for compound interest to work its magic. The eighth wonder of the world The world-renowned physicist, Albert Einstein, was believed to have once quipped that compound i

These 3 Companies Are Trading Close To Their 52-Week Low Share Prices
I’m a value investor. So, I like to search for companies that are trading at good value. 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 neglected or beaten down by investors. And, some of these stocks can be bargains in relation to their actual economic worth 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. As such, I will screen for stocks that are trading near their 52-week low prices nearly once every week. There are many stocks that pop up on my screen each time I run it.  So what are the companies that have shown up on this week’s list? Here are three of them:

Quick Thought Of The Week: Activism
An activist investor has set its sights on one of Singapore’s banks. It hasn’t said which one, yet. But there are only three banks listed in Singapore. That is unless we count deposit-taking outfit, Hong Leong Finance (SGX: S41), as a bank too, which it isn’t. So, we have a one-in-three chance of correctly guessing which one it might be. But Singapore banks have not performed that badly. So, why would Judah Value Activist Fund want to take on one of the Singapore banks. It said it wants to make it more efficient. Over the last decade, the total return of DBS Group (SGX: D05), Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation (SGX: O39) and United Overseas Bank (SGX: U11) have outperformed many of its peers…. …. The median annual total return for both Asian and European banks has been around 7%

Singapore’s Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks That Have Outstripped The Market By 3X
Singapore’s Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI), home to the 30 largest companies in Singapore, has fallen by over 8% since the start of the year. But it’s not all doom and gloom. If we lengthen our horizon from months to years, we will see that a good number of STI companies have done quite well. As a baseline, the index provided a total return of 9.9% over the past three years. However, according to a recent SGX report, there were at least 10 companies that produced returns that are three times better than the index. Let’s have a look at the top 10 performers (data as of 30 August 2018). For the first five companies, click here. 6.

4 Stocks This Week (Buybacks) [7 September 2018] – DBS; CapitaLand; UOB; OCBC
Share Buybacks The management team of a company has much more insights into the value and future performance of the company than ordinary investors, or even institutional investors. This is why share buybacks are usually seen a positive signal in the market that the company’s management think that investors are underpricing their shares. Read Also: Share Buybacks: What It Means And How It Impacts Investors Most companies have a share buyback mandate – this is the number of shares it can repurchase within the year, as approved by shareholders at its Annual General Meeting (AGM) or an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM). The share buyback mandate of a company is just a guideline for the maximum number of shares they can repurchase (usually capped at 10% of the total number of shares of a

The Week in Numbers: Amazon Briefly Reaches US$1 Trillion in Market Capitalisation
Amazon.com briefly joined Apple in the trillion dollar club on Tuesday when its shares hit a high of US$2,050.50 apiece. Although the share price has since dipped back to US$1,994 (as of 6 September), it still marked a historic accomplishment for chief executive, Jeff Bezos, who founded the company as a small online book seller a mere 24 years ago. Bezos is now the world’s wealthiest person, with Amazon.com a diversified enterprise that has more than US$200 billion in annual sales and more than 575,000 employees. Amazon shares have more than tripled since 2015 and are up more than 500 times the IPO price, after accounting for share splits.

Singapore’s Top 5 Performing Blue-Chip Stocks
Singapore’s Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI), which hosts 30 of the largest companies in Singapore, has fallen by over 8% since the start of the year. But it’s not all doom and gloom. If we lengthen our horizon from months to years, we will see that a good number of STI companies have actually done quite well. In fact, a recent SGX report revealed that the top five performing companies in the index had returned over 77% on average over the past three years. Let’s have a look at the select quintet (data as of 30 August 2018): 1.

Is Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited A Value Buy At S$11.10?
Yesterday, Singapore’s stock market benchmark, the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI), fell by 1.7%. One of the key culprits was Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited (SGX: O39), which makes up around 13% of the index — OCBC’s share price tumbled by 1.6% on the day, closing at S$11.10. The share price of S$11.10 is a whisker away from the 52-week intraday low of S$10.83 that was reached in mid-September 2017. This begs the question: Is OCBC a value buy at S$11.10? There isn’t a straightforward answer, but we can make some intelligent guesses from a few metrics. Net asset value growth The net asset value (NAV) is the difference between a company’s assets and its liabilities. It also shows the company’s net worth.

These 2 Singapore Banks Recently Announced Growth In Their Latest Results
Earnings season has come and gone. Given that many companies reported their results in the past few weeks, I thought it may be useful to summarise the results of some of these companies in three distinct buckets – positive, negative, mixed. This categorization will give our readers a quick overview of the performances of these companies. With that in mind, we will focus on two of those companies that delivered growth in their latest results. 1. DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05), or DBS for short, reported growth in its 2018 second-quarter earnings results. For the quarter ended 30 June 2018, total income grew by 10% from a year ago to S$3.20 billion. Net interest income (income from loans) grew 18% year-on-year to S$2.22 billion, driven by improvement in net interest margin and loan volu

The Most Influential Singapore Companies That Move The Singapore Stock Market
Some companies in Singapore hold more sway than others. But a handful of companies may be influential enough to move Singapore’s stock market. The Straits Times Index, or STI for short, is often seen as a barometer for Singapore’s stock market. The index is made up from 30 of the largest listed companies on the Singapore stock market. These companies come from a variety of industries and sectors. The banking industry, in particular, carries more weight compared to other industries. Banking On A Trio Singapore local banking trio, namely DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05), Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited (SGX: O39) and United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11), make up approximately 41% of the index, as of the end of August 2018.

5 Positive Things Investors Should Know About Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited’s Latest Earnings Update
Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited (SGX: O39) is one of the three main local banks in Singapore. Since the release of its 2018 second quarter earnings update on 6 August 2018, OCBC’s stock price has been flat. But, I actually see five positive things in the bank’s latest set of results: 1. Net interest income grew 8% year-on-year to S$1.45 billion, driven by loan growth and an improvement in the bank’s net interest margin. Moreover, OCBC’s loan growth was broad-based across industries as well as geographical segments. 2. Non-interest income stepped up by 2% year-on-year to S$1.02 billion because of a 19% rise in wealth management fee income, and higher brokerage, fund management, loan related activities, and investment banking income. 3. OCBC’s cost-to-income ratio fell from

The earnings season is coming to the tail-end with the bulk of the companies having reported their financial results. Among the blue-chips of the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI), a handful of them have raised their dividends in the latest quarter. Let’s take a look at these companies.

The Week in Numbers: Wall Street Stocks Reach Fresh Highs
US stocks reached new highs on Friday after Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell said that there were “no signs of an overheated economy” and policymakers expect to increase interest rates gradually. The S&P 500 index, a broad-based stock barometer, increased 0.6% to 2,874.69, a record-high in seven months. The Nasdaq rose 0.9% to 7,945, also a new record, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 0.5% to close at 25,790, 825 points shy of its all-time high. Analysts expect the central bank to raise rates two more times this year.

On that note, let’s look at the three banks, which are part of the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI), that have repurchased their shares thus far during the week, as of market open today. United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11) With more than 500 branches in 19 countries, United Overseas Bank (UOB) is one of the largest banks in Southeast Asia.

Which Singapore-Listed Bank Is Cheaper Than The Stock Market Right Now?
So far in August, shares in DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05) have fallen by 6.6%, Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited (SGX: O39) shares have declined by 3.4% while United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11) have inched down by 0.4%. Given the poor share performance by the trio of banks, it begs the question: Which bank has the best valuation to invest in for the long-term? To help answer that, I would be comparing the valuation of the banks against that of the SPDR STI ETF (SGX: ES3), an exchange-traded fund which can be taken as a proxy for the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI). The table below shows the valuation comparison of the banks against the SPDR STI ETF (the best values among the banks are in bold):Source: S&P Global Market Intelligence; SPDR STI ETF website (data as of 21 Au
