SingPost share price set to roil big time again?
Since collapsing to a 10-year low in December 2018, SingPost share price managed to crawl its way back to the $1.00 mark. But it seems that the recovery of SingPost share price could be a false dawn in the making as the management dropped a big hint in its recent financial report that a massive impairment to the carrying value of the US businesses is on the way. Horror show of SingPost shares For SingPost, impairments are assessed based on the full financial year results. The last time that SingPost recorded significant impairments was in FY2017 which saw SingPost suffered impairment charges of a massive $208.6million for TradeGlobal. The huge impairment charges walloped SingPost share price upside down back then. Thus, SingPost share price could be poised for another challenging time. Th

These 2 Singapore Stocks Announced Mixed Results Recently
We are in earnings season again! Many companies have been reporting their quarterly results over the last few weeks, and some of the news has been good, and some bad. Some companies have reported a bit of both. Today we’re looking at two companies that have recently reported mixed quarterly results. First, we have Singapore Post Limited (SGX: S08), or SingPost, a mail and logistics company organised into four major segments of Post and Parcel, Logistics, eCommerce, and Property. For the quarter ended 31 December 2018, SingPost reported that revenue improved 7.6% year on year to S$441.4 million as a result of higher volume across the group. Yet, quarterly operating profit declined 8.5% year on year to S$42.2 million, largely due to challenges in the U.S. business. Net profit for the

The Week in Numbers: Fed Holds Interest Rate Steady
In a formal policy shift, the United States Federal Reserve kept interest rates unchanged and vowed to be patient in further raising borrowing costs. The overnight benchmark lending rate was kept at a band of 2.25% to 2.5%. Fed chairman Jerome Powell said that the case for raising rates had “weakened”. In a statement, the Fed also dropped its earlier expectation for “some further” tightening. Powell said that the central bank will likely stop trimming its US$4.1 trillion balance sheet sooner. Investors reacted to the news, sending the S&P 500 index up 1.5% after the news. The Fed had raised rates four times last year and in December signaled that it would do so twice more this year. But the cloudier economic outlook, including fears that the 35-day government shutdown may have

Administrative oversight, inadvertent omissions, administrative inadvertences: what next?
By Mak Yuen Teen In 2015, SingPost failed to disclose the interest of a director when it announced an acquisition and blamed it on an “administrative oversight”. Other companies soon used the same term, and “administrative oversight” entered the lexicon of listed companies here when explaining away incorrect disclosures. When incorrect disclosures about past regulatory actions and a petition for winding up were made at the time of the appointment of Low Beng Tin as chairman of Datapulse Technology, the company issued a clarification and cited “inadvertent omissions”. Other companies in which Mr Low was also a director had also made similar incorrect disclosures and they too issued clarifications citing the same reason. It did not take long for other comp

Commentary: Are SingPost’s lapses indicative of a deeper malaise in the company?
First published by Channel NewsAsia on January 31, 2019 By Mak Yuen Teen In a digital age where transactions, notifications and records have been digitalised, you would think the postman gets it easier. But news of SingPost’s investigations this week after fresh images of mail found in a rubbish bin in Ang Mo Kio went viral and its subsequent update that it has referred the case to the Police have touched a raw nerve. Last year, SingPost fired a postman after he was found to have thrown away returned letters and direct mail at a condominium, and a video of someone confronting the man and claiming he had just thrown a stack of letters into a rubbish bin had gone viral. SingPost too had issued an apology just two weeks ago after receiving a string of complaints regarding undelivered mai

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.

3 Companies That Have Bought Back Their Shares This Week
Share repurchases can be a good thing if done for the correct reasons. And that is, if the company’s shares are undervalued, and the reinvestment opportunities into the firm are not as attractive.

A very long reflection of 2018
