These 3 Companies Have Bought Back Their Shares This Week
Warren Buffett is a huge advocate of businesses buying back their shares. He believes that share buybacks can reveal a thing or two about the company’s management. He once said: “What you’d like to do as an investor is hook them up to a machine and run a polygraph to see whether it’s true. Short of a polygraph the best sign of a shareholder-oriented management — assuming its stock is undervalued — is repurchases. A polygraph proxy, that’s what it is.” On that note, let’s check out three companies picked at random that have repurchased their shares thus far during the week, as of market open today. Silverlake Axis Ltd (SGX: 5CP) Silverlake is a software solutions provider servicing mainly the financial services sector. On 14 January 2019, Sil

SingPost share price crashed to 10-year low
Can SingPost share be your ticket to financial freedom or is it a value trap in the making? Perennially seen as a dividend counter, SingPost stock should have many supporters. But reality started to sink in for investors as SingPost share price plunged to a 10-year low recently. On 28 December 2018, SingPost share price was trading at the level of $0.90, a complete disaster as the counter saw a massive correction of almost 30% since the start of the year. Indeed, the devastating spell of run for SingPost share price must be giving investors plenty of sleepless nights. Defending SingPost share price A reassuring note to SingPost investors is that the management religiously conduct share buy-backs throughout the year. Since January 2018, a series of share buy-backs saw the treasury shares ri

A very long reflection of 2018
My baby just fell asleep, so I had to myself an hour or so to reflect on the year 2018. I started off by looking at the diary app that I had been conscientiously writing every night before I go to sleep. Here's a few highlights monthly:Jan: Went Bangkok for a trip with my wife, but not with son. Left him with my mum back in Singapore, and happily so! We're so tired and we need to take care of ourselves. Looking back, we're so...noob being parents, haha! Perhaps the new year 2019 will see me bringing him along. Already done up his passport.Feb: Looking back, I realised I was too reliant on my mum to take care of the baby. When she wasn't around, I was complaining how hard it was to manage the whole day. These days, I can take care of everything and more, alone, with nary a complain. I've im

Year 2018 closing soon
This has been a busy year, this has been a fast year. I haven't post anything yet, so yes, here I am, still surviving in the market.In terms of investment, it has been a tough year. There has been ups and downs. I had some success with Comfort, WBA counters, but really hit bad by some counters like Singpost, QAF. so the year would not be performing so well overall, but one consolation is that USD has strengthened, and that will give some currency gains.Any lesson learned? ya I figure is that by all means be prudent and don't over commit, because you would never know that a rosy counter would turn out to be a bomb. It could go low, average down is fine, but bear in mind it will go lower.The real question is, what's the sustainable way to make profits? keep taking or ride the bull for long t

What Investors Should Know About Share Buybacks by Singapore-Listed Companies in October 2018
Companies which buyback their shares could signal to the market that their shares are undervalued. Last month, 29 companies repurchased 30.8 million shares or units for a total amount of S$59.9 million, according to a report released by the Singapore Exchange Limited (SGX: S68) recently. The October buyback was 36% down from September’s buyback of S$94 million.

1 Simple Number To Understand 3 Important Areas Of Singapore Post Limited
Singapore Post Limited (SGX: S08) is a mail and logistics company, organised into four major segments of Post and Parcel, Logistics, and eCommerce and Property. In this article, I want to dig deep into Singapore Post’s return on equity, or ROE. The choice of ROE Why 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 incr
