1 Crucial Aspect of Investing You Should Not Ignore
Investors are encouraged to analyse and review financial statements on a regular basis (quarterly or semi-annually), issued by the companies within their portfolios. Admittedly, there is a lot of information to digest, and this tends to put off many investors, especially if they are not naturally attuned to numbers. Most investors tend to focus their attention on the income statement and look for revenue, margin, or profit growth. While this is not a bad idea, focusing too much on the income statement neglects a very crucial aspect of investing — that of cash generation. Investors should actually be turning their attention to the cash-flow statement first, balance sheet second, and the income statement last of all. Let’s look at why this is so. Cash is king Cash undoubtedly rem

3 Reasons Most Shares Are Either Too Cheap or Too Expensive
When an investor approaches the stock market with the intention of buying shares, he or she would expect to find an equal proportion of companies that are cheap, expensive, or fairly valued. In reality, though, my observation is that most companies end up being either too cheap or too expensive, and this is mainly due to the effects of human psychology or emotions being applied to the stock market. If everyone was a rational robot, we would hardly see sharp, unexplained, and frequent share-price fluctuations. Here are three major causes of this phenomenon. 1. Hype If a company is “hyped,” that means it has seen strong promotion and marketing — from company leadership, the media, or both — involving touting and amplifying the company’s positive traits while eit

If You Wait for a Recovery, It Will Be Too Late to Buy Cheap Shares
Downturns, recessions, and bear markets can feel very scary as doomsday headlines start appearing in the media and pessimism abounds. During such turbulent times, it is natural for most investors to hunker down and wait, hoping for the storm to pass quickly. Our brain’s defence mechanism programs us to avoid danger and seek safety and shelter. This causes many investors to freeze like deer in the headlights, unable to take appropriate action to steer their portfolios to calmer waters. The right thing to do is to consistently buy shares when valuations are attractive, but this is easier said than done. Waiting for a recovery Common practice amongst investors is to wait for evidence of a recovery before committing any capital to the stock market. A friend of mine sold off all of his st

The Week Ahead: Singtel, SIA and ComfortDelGro
It’s a big week for Singapore’s transportation sector with numbers from a port operator, an airport services outfit and a cab firm. Hutchison Port Holdings (SGX: NS8U) posted a slump in third-quarter profits in October. Revenue fell nearly 7% because of weaker within Asia. The Hong Kong-based port operator said it will continue to focus on improving costs given the soft global trade outlook. Airport services company, SATS (SGX: S58), reported a 9% drop in second-quarter earnings because of the absence of a one-time gain a year ago. But SATS said revenues was 4.2% higher, with gateway services up 6.3% and food solutions up 2.5%. ComfortDelGro (SGX:C52) said third-quarter profits were down 2%.

What Does the Year of the Pig Bring for the Stock Market?
It’s time of the year again when we come together for a family reunion, indulge in good food and have the weight loss resolution on the back burner. It is also the time when some of us look at Feng Shui predictions to see what the new year brings for our health, career and finances. Out of curiosity, I took a look at what the Feng Shui masters are telling us regarding the stock market in the Year of the Pig. Gloomy times ahead? For the Pig year, wood and earth industries should do well. These include the fashion, media, education and environmental sectors. Sectors such as property, mining, insurance, and computer software may also see an uplift. On the contrary, water and metal industries may underperform. Sectors that may not do well in the Pig year include shipping, transport, communi

Haw Par Corporation Ltd Is Trading Close to Its 52-Week Low. Is It Cheap Now?
Haw Par Corporation Ltd (SGX: H02) is the maker of the Tiger Balm brand of ointment. Other than its healthcare arm, it also has strategic stakes in UOL Group Limited and United Overseas Bank Ltd. At a current price of S$12.22, Haw Par’s stock price is 4.8% higher than its 52-week low of S$11.65. Is Haw Par cheap now? If so, it might be a good opportunity for investors to start or add to a position in the stock. There is no easy answer to the question “Is this stock cheap?”, but we can get some insight by comparing Haw Par’s current valuation with the market’s valuation using three common metrics: the price-to-book (P/B) ratio, price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio, and dividend yield.

These 5 Blue Chip Stocks Have Grown Dividends By More Than 50% In Last 10 Years
Income investors would ideally like to invest in companies that have sustainable dividends. Unfortunately, no one can accurately predict the future, which makes estimating the future dividends of a company potentially tricky. One way to help clear up some of the fog would be to look at a company’s history of paying dividends. Over the past 10 years, the global economy has been through some really rough times, with the great financial crisis being the most jarring episode. It would thus mean that a company that can grow its dividends in the past decade has a business that has some stability and sustainability in the past – and that could be a great starting point for further research.
