Hyflux’s board ticked boxes but let down stakeholders
At various points during the Hyflux saga so far, I have given comments to the media and made periodic postings about the company’s corporate governance and its restructuring. I have not to this point written extensive commentaries on it like I have done for many other companies, like SingPost, Datapulse, YuuZoo, Noble and others. There were a number of reasons. First, I thought there were enough people commenting on every single development (in fact, I had turned down requests for comments from the media on several occasions). Second, I did not think there was the kind of egregious behaviour that we have seen in many other companies, even though I thought the Hyflux board was flawed and let down stakeholders. More recently, there was a third reason – I had set a major examinati

Do Not Under-Estimate the Power of a Dividend Investment Strategy
People generally pick an investing style or philosophy they’re comfortable with, ranging from growth styles to value styles across a wide spectrum. Most investors readily admit that they invest in order to grow their wealth through capital gains. Fewer investors think of relying on a dividend strategy to grow their asset base, as dividend investing is often viewed more like a retirement strategy to obtain income during one’s golden years. However, perhaps it may be time to look more closely at this assumption. A dividend investment strategy should not only be viewed as one of income, it should be recognised as one that could offer a good margin of safety and also help to grow your overall portfolio through compounding. Companies chosen for their dividends often display resilien

3 Key Risks for Dasin Retail Trust
Dasin Retail Trust (SGX: CEDU), or Dasin, is a China retail-focused real estate investment trust (REIT) that was listed on the SGX in January 2017. Its portfolio consists of four retail malls located in Zhongshan city in the People’s Republic of China (PRC). As the REIT owns properties in a foreign country (i.e., China) but is listed in Singapore, I wanted to find out more about the risks it’s susceptible to. Here are three key risks I managed to uncover for Dasin. 1. Distribution waiver There is a distribution waiver in place for two of the REIT’s largest shareholders — Aqua Wealth Holdings and Bounty Way Investments — that lasts until 2022. The waiver states that these two shareholders will waive their rights to distributions from Dasin, and these distributi

Singapore Post Plans to Divest Its E-Commerce Acquisitions: A Good Move?
Singapore Post Limited (SGX: S08), or SingPost, is a mail and logistics company, with four main segments: postal, logistics, e-commerce, and property. In April 2019, SingPost announced a strategic review for its US e-commerce businesses and will commence a sale process of both Jagged Peak and TradeGlobal. SingPost first took majority stakes in Jagged Peak and TradeGlobal for US$184.4 million in 2015, under former Chief Executive Officer Wolfgang Baier. Baier then quit months after these deals were made and was replaced by Paul Coutts. Investors may be wondering if the intention to divest these two significant acquisitions is a good one. Let’s take a closer look at the numbers. Segment profitability I took the liberty of downloading information on each of SingPost’s key segments

Personal Income Tax Filing Guide 2019: Understanding What Is Taxable (And What’s Not)
We’re 17 days (and counting) away from the deadline for filing our personal income taxes. Filing your taxes is the act of declaring all your taxable income for 2018, along with all deductions you’re eligible for. While you may not be able to change how much you earned last year, knowing what is taxable and not taxable is extremely important. The last thing you want is to be fined or charged in court for (unwittingly) under-declaring your taxable earnings or pay more in taxes because you were unfamiliar with the tax code. Read Also: 6 Ways To (Legally) Reduce Your Income Tax For YA 2019 When Do You Need To File Taxes?

Journey To Retirement Part 5.1 -- CapitaMall Trust
2019 marks the year I've vested in CapitaMall Trust for 1 decade and interestingly, this is the only 2nd time during that 10-year period that I am writing something about it.CapitaMall Trust was the first REIT that was listed in Singapore stock exchange in 2002 and it was also the first REIT that I've vested post 2008 GFC.  The reason for my investment, my take on its potential upside, downside and expectation were all listed in Journey To Retirement Part 5 -- CapitaMall Trust.So what has changed for the past 10 years ?  Well it still remain the same that CapitaMall Trust is an "income stock" in my portfolio.  Vested at $1.155 then and at the closing price of $2.38 (as of 29th Mar 2019), that is having an unrealized capital gain of 103.58% and not to forget the dividend coll

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

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
