1Q18 Banks Scorecard – How Do Our Local Banks Compare?
So, how did the three local banks fare in 1Q18? Investors Takeaway: SG Banks Q1 Report Card 1. DBS Group Holdings – Leading The Race DBS Group Holdings (DBS) kicked off its quarter with a stunning result that beat the market consensus. Net earnings for DBS jumped 21 percent year-on-year and 27 percent sequentially, on the back of margin improvement and growth in its wealth management segment. It was a record quarter for DBS as well. Digitalisation has been and will remain a big focus for DBS in order to extend its customer footprint and enhance its overall efficiencies. DBS’ digital strategy is a step to pre-empt disruption from fintech players while increasing digital-customer stickiness with its products.

3 Companies Paying Dividends on Friday
There are a few firms that will be going ex-dividend on Friday, 18 May 2018. In other words, you need to own the companies before that day in order to receive their dividends.

Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Ltd Starts The Year With a Bang
With banks in Singapore doing tremendously well financially in 2017, plus bank stocks up more than 50% on average over the last one-year period, the spotlight was firmly on them as they released their first quarter results for 2018. DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX:D05) and United Overseas Bank Limited (SGX:U11) had exceptional first quarters as net income and profit for both companies grew at a double-digit pace. Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Ltd (SGX:O39) was the last bank to release its results. Did OCBC match its competitors? In this article, I take a look at 10 important highlights from OCBC’s latest earnings. 1. Total income for the quarter rose 10% to S$2.33 billion from S$2.12 billion.

These 3 Straits Times Index Companies Repurchased Their Shares This Week
Warren Buffett is someone who actively encourages companies to buy back their shares if the conditions are right. He once said that when the shares of outstanding companies with strong financial positions are selling below their intrinsic value, no other action can benefit shareholders as share repurchases can. On that note, let’s look at three Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) components 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, more commonly known as UOB, is one of the largest banks in Southeast Asia. On 7, 8 and 9 May 2018, UOB bought back 123,786 shares ranging from S$28.88 to S$29.940 per share, translating to a total cost of around S$3.6 m

Is It a Good Time to Buy Bank Stocks Now?
Banks have certainly done well over the past two years. Favourable macro-economic conditions have led to growth in almost every business segment of the three main banks in Singapore, which are DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05), Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited (SGX: O39), and United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11). With net interest margins (the difference between a bank’s cost of capital, and the interest it earns from its loans) expected to rise further, banks are expected to continue to do well in 2018 and beyond. However, the stock prices of the three Singapore banks have also increased dramatically over the last two years. In that period, DBS, OCBC, and UOB have seen their stock prices climb by 97%, 57%, and 67%, respectively. This has certainly made investors think twice about w

Why Has Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited’s Stock Price Climbed By 26% In The Last 12 Months?
Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited (SGX: O39) is one of the three major banks based in Singapore. Over the last 12 months, OCBC’s stock price has gained 26% to S$13.18 currently. What may have caused this? Reasons for a gain There can be many reasons behind a stock’s price gain. But, the reasons can generally be classified as business-performance-related, or investor-sentiment-related. The former deals with how a stock’s business has performed or is expected to perform. And in terms of business performance, one of the really important numbers would be the stock’s profits. Meanwhile, the latter is about the overall mood of market participants – are investors more greedy than fearful, more pessimistic than optimistic et cetera?

The Week Ahead: Can OCBC Complete A Banking Hattrick?
With more than two-thirds of the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) having reported, the first-quarter earnings season will enter the home straight next week. Genting Singapore (SGX: G13) will be the first blue chip to report next week. In February, the integrated resorts owner lifted its dividends, even though earnings fell 17%. It said that it had seen a stronger underlying performance from the leisure and hospitality segment, thanks to higher business volume. Singapore’s second-largest bank, Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation (SGX: O39), will also report on Monday. The bank soundly beat analyst estimates in the fourth quarter, when it posted a 31% jump in net profits. It said it had seen sustained growth momentum in banking, wealth management and insurance.

In this article, I’ll bring an overview of OCBC’s performance over the last 10 years, the current risks it faces, and its outlook in the near future.

How Can DBS Group Holdings Ltd Achieve Its Ambitious 13% ROE Target For 2018?
A bank’s return on equity (ROE) is a key metric used to determine how efficient it is in using its shareholders’ equity to generate a profit. The higher the ROE is, the more efficient the bank is. At the same time, the return on equity must also be sustainable, and must not come at the expense of a weak balance sheet. With this in mind, I wanted to assess whether DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05) could achieve its aggressive 13% ROE target for 2018. A sky-high goal This is an exceptionally ambitious goal. For perspective, DBS’s ROE in 2017 was just 9.31%. Furthermore, over the past five years, the highest ROE that DBS achieved was 11.05% in 2015. The other two major banks in Singapore, United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11) and Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited (SGX: O39), achieved R

1 Simple Number For Understanding 3 Important Areas Of Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited’s Business
Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited (SGX: O39) is one of the three major banks based out of Singapore. In this article, I want to dig deep into OCBC’s return on equity, or ROE. The choice of ROE Why the ROE some of you might be asking? That’s because the financial metric gives investors important insight on a company’s ability to generate a profit using the shareholders’ capital it has. A ROE of 20% means that a company generates $0.20 in profit for every dollar of shareholders’ capital invested. In general, the higher the ROE, the more profitable a company is. A high ROE can also be a sign that a company has a high quality business. That being said, it’s worth noting that the use of high leverage – which increases the financial risk faced by a company – can also increase

Portfolio Update 30 April 2018

The positive turn of the relationship between the two Korean governments, and the good corporate earning news push the market upwards.Good economic data boosted investors' sentiment in Singapore. STI performed very well in the month of April. As at today, STI rose 185.96 points, or 5.42% compared to last month. Unfortunately, my portfolio did not perform as well.

The Week Ahead: Can DBS And OUB Deliver Again?
The earnings season continues apace with banks the main focus next week. In February DBS Group (SGX: D05) said it will pay $1.20 per share in dividends from 2018 onwards. It said the higher pay out was because the Basel reforms that have been finalised would not have much impact on the bank. We will also find out if Singapore’s biggest lender can outperform again? United Overseas Bank (SGX: U11) posted a 16% jump in fourth-quarter earnings in a February. This was thanks to an increase in net interest income, fee commission and net trading income.

Expected Performance For Banks In 2Q18!
In the current rising interest rate environment, all eyes are on banks as they are expected to experience a boost in performance. However, not all banks are created equal and their performance would vary. Before they post their 2Q18 results, here is a roundup of their expected performance! Operating Environment Overall, the economic conditions remain favourable for the banking sector with rising interest rates and a benign credit environment. Looking forward, the cutting down of manpower through digitalisation should help to increase efficiency and improve performance. Singapore’s economic growth stood at 4.3 percent year on year for the first quarter of the year due to growth in the manufacturing and service sector.

Institutional Investors Have Been Buying These 3 Stocks Recently
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.
