How Will the New Private Hire Car Licensing Scheme Impact ComfortDelGro?
ComfortDelGro Corporation Ltd (SGX: C52), or CDG, is a land transport conglomerate with a total fleet size of around 42,300 buses, taxis and rental vehicles. CDG operates in seven countries – Singapore, Australia, the United Kingdom, China, Ireland, Vietnam and Malaysia. Singapore’s Parliament announced on August 6 that commuters can look forward to a new formal licensing regime which will allow the authorities to mandate safety standards for ride-hailing companies and to act against any breaches. This is the first time that the ride-hailing industry is being regulated since companies such as Grab and Uber Technologies Inc (NYSE: UBER) burst onto the scene six years ago. Though Uber has since pulled out from Singapore, Indonesian start-up Go-Jek has taken its place in a big wa

The Week Ahead: Brexit Rumbles On
With earnings season out of the way, attention is likely to turn to economic and political matters. And there is certainly a lot of those to keep everyone busy. The US will report some trade numbers that The White House seems to be overly fixated about. They could show that July exports were barely changed and that imports hardly budged. That means the trade balance with the rest of the world was largely unmoved at US$53.4 billion. So much for trade wars being easy to win. Another closely-watched number by The White House is non-Farm payroll. That could show another slowdown in the number of jobs created. It doesn’t look like those jobs that China “stole” from the US have come back. Meanwhile, China’s balance of trade is also expected to show a reduction from US$44

Chart of the Week: Haidilao Owner Tops Singapore Rich List
Much has been made of the fact that Zhang Yong, owner of Hong Kong-listed hotpot chain operator Haidilao International Holding Ltd (SEHK: 6862), is now Singapore’s richest person – with an estimated wealth of US$13.8 billion according to the 2019 Forbes Singapore Rich List. He’s now a naturalised Singapore citizen and resident. If investors had carried out their own research on Haidilao (not found in its earnings reports) in what is commonly referred to as “scuttlebutt”, they may have caught on early how popular the hotpot chain has become, both within China – where it has over 300 restaurants – and internationally. For Singapore residents, taking a trip down to Plaza Singapura or Novena would have shown astute observers just how jam-packed these

These 2 Singapore Blue Chips Have Higher Dividend Yields Than the Straits Times Index
Income investors generally seek to invest in stable companies that can sustain dividend payments for a long period of time. Moreover, these investors seek to acquire such companies at relatively attractive valuations. Here, one of the main criteria of an attractive valuation is a high dividend yield. In other words, we’re looking for stable blue-chip companies that have above-average market yields. Here, an above-average yield is one higher than the SPDR STI ETF‘s (SGX: ES3) yield of 3.8%. Let’s look at two blue chips that meet the above description. No. 1: United Overseas Bank Ltd Local bank United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11) has been a solid performer over the last decade, growing total income from S$5.3 billion in 2008 to S$9.1 billion in 2018.

2 Shares That Are Perfect for Retirees
Retirement is called the golden years for a reason; it is time to relax and enjoy the fruits of your labour. The last thing you want to worry about during your retirement is finances. As such, retirees need to build a stream of passive income that will allow them to enjoy their golden years stress-free. With that, here are two stocks that could help you enjoy your retirement years.  A recession-proof stock VICOM Limited (SGX: V01) is one of my top retirement picks. The company operates seven of the nine vehicle inspection centres in Singapore and has the largest market share in the vehicle inspection space here.  The beauty of VICOM’s business is that vehicle inspections are required by law. All cars older than three years have to go through a vehicle inspection once

6 Investment Themes To Ride On The M&A Wave (Part 3)
In this article, we focus on the final two M&A investment themes: ‘Merger For F&B Brand Value’ and ‘Optimising Shareholding Structure To Maximise Returns’. Investors Takeaway: ‘Merger For F&B Brand Value’ & ‘Optimising Shareholding Structure To Maximise Returns’ ⦁ F&B – Premium In Brand Value As seen from past takeovers and privatisations of OSIM, Eu Yan Sang, Super Group, Auric Pacific and Courts Asia, companies with strong brand equity are highly sought after as acquisition targets. Among the F&B plays, SunMoon, QAF and Delfi stand out in building their brand premiums. As such, DBS thinks that these companies could be on the radar screen of acquirers.

The Better Dividend Share: SBS Transit Ltd vs. VICOM Limited
Both SBS Transit Ltd (SGX: S61) and VICOM Limited (SGX: V01) are largely owned by land transport giant, ComfortDelGro Corporation Ltd (SGX: C52). Even though both SBS Transit and VICOM are involved in somewhat different business, both of them offer decent dividend yields. However, which could give dividend investors better value? Let’s explore this further. Dividend yield SBS Transit’s share price right now is at S$4.10, and that gives the company a trailing dividend yield of 3.5%. In comparison, at VICOM’s share price of S$7.13 currently, it has a trailing dividend yield of 5.2%, excluding any special dividend. Therefore, in terms of dividend yield alone, VICOM triumphs over SBS Transit. Dividend growth rate The dividend yield tells us what a company has paid over the

SI Research: 3 Stocks To Protect Against Recession Risk
According to latest official readings, the Singapore economy is “flirting” dangerously with recession. In 2Q19, Singapore’s gross domestic product (GDP) grew a meagre 0.1 percent, widely missing economists’ expectations of a 1.1 percent growth. Exacerbated by the US-China trade war, the local manufacturing sector dragged the broader economy, contracting by a wider 3.8 percent in the quarter. That said, over in the US, the Federal Reserve has been signalling a strengthening case for an interest rate cut at the end of this month. The undercurrent driving this is also none other than the ongoing trade war with China, which is beginning to materially impact on US economy as well. Given the two information, what can retail investors do to protect themselves against adverse shocks? We of

8 things I learned from the 2019 ComfortDelGro AGM
ComfortDelGro Corporation Limited (CDG) is an integrated transport service provider with operations in Singapore, United Kingdom, Australia, China, Vietnam, and Malaysia. Its four key segments — public transport, taxi, automotive engineering, and testing services — contributed over 97% of its 2018 revenue. Most people know CDG as a taxi business that is being disrupted by ride-hailing platforms like Grab and Gojek. I had a similar impression until I did a deeper dive into the company’s business model. In reality, 70% of CDG revenues come from its majority stake in public transport operator SBS Transit, with a meagre 20% coming from its namesake taxi business. In fact, most of the acquisitions CDG made in 2018 were bus companies. With this more accurate view of CDG’

7 things I learned from the 2019 SBS Transit AGM
Most Singaporeans may recognise SBS Transit as a bus operator and SMRT as a train operator. But not many people may know that SBS Transit also runs rail services for the Downtown Line (DTL), Northeast Line (NEL), and Sengkang-Punggol LRT line in Singapore. This lack of recognition that SBS Transit also operates rail services could be a blessing in disguise for the company. Simply because whenever there’s a train service disruption, the blame often goes to SMRT! Before opening the floor for questions at the 2019 SBS Transit AGM, Chairman Lim Jit Poh reminded shareholders not to ask questions related to the breakdown of revenue by rail or bus; the management does not disclose the details due to commercial sensitivity. SBS Transit has to bid for bus tenders under the new bus contrac
