Shopping For Growing Dividends In Supermarkets
I remember a time when grocery shopping was a burden. Some people might say that it still is. But it’s nothing compared to when I was a child. In those days, we went to a butcher for meats, a greengrocer for fruit and vegetables, and separate trips to different specialists for bread, rice, fish and other provisions. But supermarkets changed the way we shop. Everything has been brought under one roof. These days, we can even do our regular shop online. Supermarkets are everywhere. They are available on our phones too. We don’t even have to get up from our sofas to fill our pantries and refrigerators, if we can’t be bothered to. So, it is not surprising that food retailing is big business. Globally, the grocery sector was worth almost US$8 trillion in 2016. And it’s growing. It is es

3 Small-Cap Consumer Stocks with the Highest Dividend Yields
Recently, the Singapore Exchange released a report highlighting the best-performing small-cap consumer stocks. These companies have a market capitalisation of between S$100 million and slightly above S$2 billion.

2 Top Consumer Stocks To Own In This GSS, World Cup Season
Singapore’s retail sales index has been showing positive signs, particularly robust growth in consumer durables. According to RHB, higher expenditures in consumer durables suggest consumers are more confident in their outlook and are becoming more willing to spend. Retailers Refreshing Store Image To Attract Millennial Consumers Over the past three years, the intensifying competition from e-commerce and muted consumer spending have compelled retailers to revamp its physical brand image and embrace digital platforms.

Investors Takeaway: 4 Big-Name SG Stocks That MUST Be In Your Portfolio Keppel Corporation (Keppel Corp) According to CIMB, Keppel Corp has the potential to declare higher dividends on the back of stronger gains from its asset recycling, along with stronger recovery in offshore and marine (O&M) margins. With the OPEC striking a new deal on production output, higher oil prices should support the demand for rigs. This will eventually lead to more de-risking of its jack-up inventory, resulting in improvement in operating leverage. Apart from its offshore and marine business, CIMB notes that Keppel Corp is also a proxy to ride the property cycle in Singapore and emerging markets with its land bank of 61,000 homes.

Why Does Coca-Cola Light Cost More Than All The Other Coca-Cola Flavours?
Coca-Cola, or Coke, is one of the most popular drinks on the planet, enjoyed by people from all walks of life and nationalities. Warren Buffett, the world’s most famous investor, has been known to down five cans of Classic and Vanilla Coke a day. He even joked that he was “one-quarter Coke”, since Coke such a large part of his daily diet. Incidentally, his company Berkshire Hathaway is Coca-Cola’s largest shareholder, owning 9% of the company. United States President Donald Trump is a big fan of Diet Coke, reportedly downing up to 12 cans per day. Within the first 100 days of his Presidency, he even installed a red button on his Oval Office desk that summons a butler to serve him a glass of Diet Coke.

12 things to know about Sheng Siong Group before you invest (updated 2018)
How often do you walk past a solid investment that puts money into your pocket year after year? If you look around, you’d probably find many businesses that make their shareholders richer by the day. If you are struggling to find any, let me give you a hand. Ask yourself, ‘Where have you spent your money over the last 24 hours?’ I’m pretty sure these businesses are all around you and some of them are listed companies that will continue to deliver solid investment returns to shareholders. Which leads us to our next question, ‘Then why aren’t people capitalizing on them if these great investments are all around us?’ I believe the answer lies in whether we have a set of ‘trained eyes’ to spot them.

With increasing affluence and active campaigning for Singaporeans to adopt a healthier diet by the Health Promotion Board, Singaporeans have become more conscious about their food choices and organic food is no longer the niche market it once was.

Today, major supermarkets now carry a selection of organic products, with some even launching their own line of organic foods in line with increased demand for organic food. With the ubiquity of online grocery shopping, you might wonder if it is possible to enjoy the extensive selection of organic products online at competitive prices.

Consumer Staple Stocks Are Making A Come Back
According to Warren Buffett, we should be buying stocks “within our circle of competence, that is the businesses that we do understand strongly. In that case, retail investors, like most consumers, are more likely to be familiar about the retail perspective. In this article, we take a look at something close to heart – the grocery sector. On the backdrop of stable growth, the outlook for the grocery sector looks positive given improving consumer sentiments. Despite the intense competition between the different supermarkets, competition has resulted in “improvements in product range, store-front displays, and self-checkout counters” according to RHB invest analysts. Overall we expect that the grocery sector will continue to improve and perform better. Sheng Siong Group Accor

Sell In May And Go Away?
The general consensus in the market is to ‘Sell In May And Go Away’. While DBS does not think that the stock market is going down in 2018 (having just raised its year-end estimate of STI to 3,850), DBS thinks that the near-term performance of the Singapore market might take a slight dip. With the World Cup coming up in a month’s time, it could be a time for investors to look for a break in the month of May. Historically, the Straits Times Index fell by an average of 8.6 percent during the past six tournaments as trading activity starts to slow in May. Based on past statistics, the best market re-entry time is in the beginning of July, if history repeats.
