4 Investment Strategies To Navigate Singapore’s Stock Market
With the negative momentum from 2018, the STI could remain under pressure despite the strong performance in January 2019, according to RHB. While the valuation and dividend yield of STI makes it compelling for long-term investments, RHB thinks that investors should continue to stay selective in navigating the market in 2019. RHB recommends four investment strategies that focus on stocks with stable earnings, strong balance sheets and sustainable dividends.

2019 Investment Strategies: 2 Sectors To Stay Defensive With In 2019
Weighed down by the US-China trade uncertainties, global growth is expected to slow down. Though a 90-day tariff truce was agreed in December, no concrete details of any potential trade deal have surfaced. In this article, we highlight two sectors DBS recommends investors that are looking to stay defensive.

Sheng Siong Group Ltd’s Shares Beat The Singapore Market By 27%: Is It A Good Business?
Sheng Siong Group Ltd (SGX: OV8) is one of the largest supermarket chains in Singapore, and was listed here in 2011. At Sheng Siong’s current share price of S$1.09 (as of the time of writing), the company’s shares are up about 17% in the last 12 months. Comparatively, the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) was down by about 10% during this period. This captured my attention and got me interested in finding out more about the company. In particular, I wanted to understand: Does Sheng Siong have a high-quality business? This question is important. If Sheng Siong has a high quality business, its current low share price could be an investment opportunity. Unfortunately, there’s no easy answer to the question. But, a simple metric can help shed some light on the question: the return on i

Dividends Are The Gift That Keep On Giving
Christmas is over. We didn’t have chestnuts roasting on an open fire and we didn’t have Frosty the Snowman, either – it’s much too warm for that in Singapore. But Santa Claus did come to town. And in the case of, us, dividend investors, it could almost be Christmas every day. When it comes to income investing, it can sometimes feel like Christmas every month of the year. But the reliability of the income stream can depend on whether we have been naughty or nice, which in the case of dividend investors is whether we have been successful with our stock selections. Since starting a column in The Business Times some 12 months ago, I have looked at a myriad of sectors. They range from pedestrian Real Estate Investment Trusts to high-flying airlines… …. But they all have one thin

4 Stocks This Week (Defensive Stocks) [4 January 2019] – M1; Raffles Medical; Sheng Siong; Wilmar
According to Investopedia, a defensive stock is a stock that is able to provide a consistent dividend and retain stable earnings regardless of the market condition. Due to a regular demand for their products and services, these stocks tend to remain relatively stable even during a market downturn. Conversely, they tend to underperform the market during times of economic expansion. For this week’s column, we feature 4 defensive stocks listed on SGX and how they fared for the past year.

Which Singapore-Listed Supermarket Share Should Investors Buy Now? Part 1
There are two major listed supermarket shares in Singapore. Dairy Farm International Holdings Ltd (SGX: D01) runs its retail business under brands such as Guardian, Cold Storage, Giant Hypermarket, and 7-Eleven while Sheng Siong Group Ltd (SGX: OV8) operates its namesake-branded stores. Interestingly, both company shares have outperformed the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) in 2018. Given the interest in the companies, investors might want to know which of the two supermarkets they should consider investing now. As such, I would like to put both companies up for a side-by-side comparison. To start, I will compare the earnings performance of both companies for the first half of the year. The objective is to find out which of the two did a better job. The showdown Let’s begin wi

1 Lesson We Can Learn from Bitcoin’s Crash
One year ago, on 17 December 2017, the price of one bitcoin reached a record high of US$19,783.06, according to Coindesk’s price index. At that price, bitcoin would have been worth many times that of a number of listed companies in Singapore. Fast forward to today, and the cryptocurrency’s price has plunged by 82%. In comparison, the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) has fallen by just slightly less than 9%. What is the one lesson all of us can learn from the precipitous fall of bitcoin? Going to the root “An investment operation is one which, upon thorough analysis, promises safety of principal and a satisfactory return. Operations not meeting these requirements are speculative.” – Benjamin Graham When we invest in shares, we are looking at a company’s current and future

Rampant Sheng Siong share price on magical form
Crisis? What crisis? In a year in which numerous SGX blue chips retreated to multi-year lows, Sheng Siong share price defied gravity and went on a rampant bullish form. The surprise form of Sheng Siong share price confounded many critics, including myself. How did the management achieve such feat against the backdrop of market correction? Since IPO price of $0.33 in 2011, Sheng Siong share price had been surging in recent years and even smashed a record high of $1.18 in August 2018. The selling point for Sheng Siong is that it does not have any debts and the business model generates much cash flow. These drivers caused Sheng Siong share price to be immune to market uncertainties. Given the bullish form, should investors enter this counter or is it a value trap to avoid? In response to my p

4 Stocks This Week (Billionaire Stocks) [16 November 2018] – Sri Trang; Best World; Top Glove; Japfa
The Singapore Exchange is home to nearly 100 stocks with market capitalisations of more than S$1 billion. These “billionaire stocks” are from a range of sectors and geographical concentrations, giving investors a wide range of investment opportunities. Contrary to common perception that larger capitalised stocks can only deliver modest growth, as compared to smaller caps, the top performing billionaire stocks on SGX have delivered enviable returns in 2018 year-to-date, despite market corrections and overall uncertainty and volatility. In fact, the top 10 best-performing billionaire stocks averaged a total return of 29% for 2018 year-to-date. These stocks are Sri Trang (48.2%), Best World (44.0%), Top Glove (42.9%), Japfa (41.7%), M1 (26.7%), Keppel T&T (21.2%), Sheng Siong (18.4%),

3 Top Dividend-Yielding Billionaire Shares That Had Outstanding Total Returns
In a recent report by the Singapore Exchange, the 10 best-performing billionaire shares, which have market capitalisations of more than S$1 billion, were revealed. The 10 companies have a focus on providing goods and services to consumers. They have averaged a total return (which includes capital gains and dividends) of 29% for 2018 year-to-date. Of those 10 stocks, I picked the top three companies with the highest dividend yields, which have more than the average yield of 2.5% (data as of 9 November 2018). Company #1 The first company on the list with a dividend yield of 5.4% is M1 Ltd (SGX: B2F), one of the three major telcos in Singapore. Year-to-date, the company’s total return was 26.7%. Part of the share price growth was driven by news that Keppel Corporation Limited (SGX: BN4) and

2 Short-Term Strategies To Tactfully Adjust Your Investment Portfolio
The STI fell 7.3 percent in the month of October as trade war worries, rising interest rates and correction in the US stock market weighed on the local market. The underperformance was underlined by weaker performance from property and O&G stocks after new property measures were announced and amidst the oil price correction. DBS: STI To End Year On A Weaker Note Given the uncertainty over impact of the US-China trade war and rising interest rates environment, DBS foresees STI to end on a weaker note at the end of the year. DBS lowered its target for STI from 3,550 to 3,200. In particular, DBS is concerned that bank stocks could be a potential drag for the STI. However, the recent fall in market has created more attractive valuation levels. Going forward, DBS recommends investors to ado

Hype Or Threat To Traditional Grocers?
For the past few weeks, the two largest supermarket operators, Sheng Siong Group (Sheng Siong) and Dairy Farm International (Dairy Farm) have reported less than stellar sets of financial results. Sheng Siong reported core 3Q18 net profit that increased by 1.5 percent to $17.7 million compared to a year ago, while revenue rose 8 percent to $227.9 million.  Despite a healthy growth in the top line, the bottom line was impacted by higher-than-expected administrative expenses which were 16.6 percent higher on due to higher store counts. For Dairy Farm, earnings results are released semi-annually. However, market talks have surfaced regarding the management’s contemplation over a bulk sale of its Giant stores. The market rumours arose when news of several Giant outlets were or due to shutter

Sheng Siong Group Ltd’s 2018 Third-Quarter Earnings: Revenue Rises But Net Profit Tumbles
Sheng Siong Group Ltd (SGX: OV8) is a homegrown supermarket chain with 54 outlets located all over Singapore. Its outlets are primarily located in the heartlands of our country, providing customers with both “wet and dry” shopping options. Sheng Siong recently expanded into China as well. Yesterday, Sheng Siong announced its financial results for the third quarter ended 30 September 2018. Financial highlights Here are some of the key financials from the supermarket chain for the latest quarter: 1) Revenue increased by 8% year-on-year to S$227.9 million, mainly due to new store openings. Of the 8% increase, 10.6% was contributed by new stores, 0.2% was due to comparable same-store sales growth, 1.2% was attributed to the store in China and a negative 4.0% was due to the permanent closu

5 things to know before you invest in the Phillip SING Income ETF
A year ago, Phillip Capital Management, along with Lion Global Investors, launched the Lion-Phillip S-REIT ETF. The ETF aimed to give investors a way to invest in a diversified basket of Singapore REITs (S-REITs) which paid a steady stream of distributions. (At the moment, the average distribution yield for S-REITs is 6.8%.) The ETF was met with a largely positive response from the market – Lion Global Investors and Phillip Capital Management initially aimed to raise S$40-50 million but exceeded their target when the fund raised over S$100 million last October. Capitalizing on the Singapore market’s appetite for yield, Phillip Capital Management has now launched the Phillip SING Income ETF. The initial offer period for the ETF will close at 11:00 a.m. on 19 October 2018 before its list
