4 Investment Strategies To Navigate Singapore’s Stock Market
With the negative momentum from 2018, the STI could remain under pressure despite the strong performance in January 2019, according to RHB.

RHB recommends four investment strategies that focus on stocks with stable earnings, strong balance sheets and sustainable dividends.

Is It Advisable To Mimic An Investing Guru’s Portfolio?
Investing can be a difficult process, and great investment ideas are few and far between. Aside from reading extensively and digging deep into news articles and annual reports, investors may also look for short-cuts by mimicking others’ portfolios. This is especially common when people recognise an influential investor or encounter an expert investor who is held in high regard. Here are some reasons why this is a bad idea. Different Investment Goals This should be fairly obvious on the outset – the guru or expert would have very different investing goals and objectives compared to the investor who is mimicking him. This implies that the investor who copies his actions may inadvertently end up with a portfolio which does not suit his personal preferences and circumstances. Lag T

Is It Necessary To Calculate The Exact Value Of A Company?
Investors are probably familiar with the horde of sell-side reports issued by various brokerages which tout the “fair value” of a particular stock. When business conditions change, the analysts who write these reports would adjust their assumptions, and their spreadsheets and financial models would spit out a different fair value, leading them to alter their conclusion about the stock. The question here would be – is it really necessary to calculate the exact value of a company, and how accurate are these methods anyway? Financial Models and Spreadsheets Analysts use a variety of financial models and methods to estimate the fair value of listed companies. These are spreadsheet-based computations which incorporate a variety of assumptions on margins, growth rates and debt

Accounting Demystified: Expenses Versus Assets
Just as I finished my article on capital expenditure under the investment demystified series, it suddenly occurred to me that I needed to explain a little more on the different types of approaches for expenses and capital expenditure, even though technically they sound similar. Without going into the details and nuances of accounting, I will attempt to provide a simple and succinct explanation of the difference here, so that readers can better appreciate the different types of accounting treatments to make their analysis more accurate.

The Better Dividend Share: SIA Engineering Company Ltd or Singapore Technologies Engineering Ltd?
SIA Engineering Company Ltd (SGX: S59) and Singapore Technologies Engineering Ltd (SGX: S63) are two prominent engineering groups listed in Singapore. The two companies can also be classified as income shares since they have dividend yields that are higher than that of the market average. However, which of the two gives investors more bang for their buck? To help answer that, let’s compare the dividend yields, dividend historical growth rates, and dividend payout ratios of the two firms. Dividend yield SIA Engineering’s share price is currently at S$2.51, giving the company a trailing dividend yield of 4.8%. On the other hand, at ST Engineering’s share price of S$3.75 now, it has a trailing dividend yield of 4%.

QAF Limited’s Stock Is Down 39% From Its 52-Week High. Is It a Good Business?
QAF Limited (SGX: Q01) is a food production company. The company organises its businesses into three segments, namely Bakery, Primary Production, Trading and Logistics, and Investments. At the current price of S$0.69 (at the time of writing), the company’s stock is down 39% from its 52-week high of S$1.13. If QAF Limited is a high-quality business, its current low stock price could be an investment opportunity. There’s no easy answer to that question, but one simple metric can help shed some light: return on invested capital (ROIC). A brief introduction to ROIC In a previous article, I explained how ROIC can be used to evaluate the quality of a business. The simple idea behind the metric is that a business with a higher ROIC requires less capital to generate a profit, and it thus give

Did the Fed just engineer a big monthly whipsaw or is something brewing?
The strong rebound in January so far, following the worst December since the Great Depression, prompted me to look at historical precedents since the 1950's, where the S&P 500 also had a strong rebound following a monthly loss greater than 8% (the loss in December 2018 was 9.2%). What I found was that all such precedents occurred either during recessions or significant market events. This makes the most recent whipsaw look very strange indeed as there is neither a recession nor any significant market event unless you call the flipping of Powell a market event. Or unless there is something which has yet to reveal itself. I have listed them below in chronological order showing the significant monthly losses before the rebound and the corresponding re-based S&P 500 chart.Kennedy Slide
