These 3 Companies Bought Back Their Shares During The Week
Share repurchases can be a good thing if done for the right reasons. And that is, if the company’s shares are undervalued, and the reinvestment opportunities into the firm are not as attractive. On that note, let’s check out three companies picked at random that have repurchased their shares so far during the week, as of market open today. Singapore Exchange Limited (SGX: S68) Singapore Exchange (SGX) is the only stock market operator in Singapore, and it provides listing, trading, clearing, settlement, depository, and data services. On 10 December 2018, the company bought back 70,000 shares at S$7.04 per share. The total cost came up to around S$493,000. SGX’s share price ended Thursday at S$7.19.

Institutional Investors Were Buying These 3 Blue-Chips In November
There are many ways to find investment ideas. Some useful ways are to screen for stocks or to look at a list of stocks near their 52-week lows to sieve out potential bargains. Studying what institutional investors have been buying or selling is another avenue. Institutional investors are typically large investment organisations, such as hedge funds, mutual funds, unit trust companies, sovereign wealth funds, insurance companies and so on. These investors tend to possess vastly greater resources than individual investors like you and me when researching stocks. Hence, it may be useful to keep a close eye on what they are doing, as a way to generate ideas.

4 Stocks This Week (Recent IPOs) [7 December 2018] – Medinex; MeGroup; Vividthree; Synagie
We’re into the final weeks of 2018 and looking back, the Singapore Exchange (SGX) saw a listing of 14 Initial Public Offerings (IPOs). These IPOs collectively raised a total of $722.5 million, which is significantly lower than $4.6 billion raised from 20 IPOs in full year of 2017. Perhaps some of SGX’s initiatives, such as the widely-discussed dual-class shares, may give the local exchange a boost in 2019. This instalment of 4 Stocks This Week examines the 4 most recent IPOs listed on the SGX and how they fared since. Medinex Limited (SGX: OTX) Founded in 2009, Medinex Limited is a Singapore-based one-stop provider of medical support and consultancy services.

3 Singapore-Listed Dividend Companies That Are Perfect For Retirement

3 Singapore Blue-Chip Shares That Warren Buffett Might Like
World-renowned investor, Warren Buffett, likes to invest in companies with a wide economic moat. The presence of an economic moat in a company’s business acts as a powerful deterrent to would-be competitors who are considering encroaching the territory of the business. Examples are abound of Buffett investing in companies with sticky consumers, ensuring even more profits are produced by the firms when consumers come back for more. In Singapore’s stock market, there are also companies with wide economic moats. Let’s look at three such companies that are part of the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI), and hence, are also known colloquially as blue-chip shares.

2 Companies Which Have Reported Gross Losses And What You Can Learn From Them
The importance of the gross margin in assessing a company’s financial status and competitive moat cannot be understated. My colleague Royston Yang had previously written an article on the gross profit margin and its usefulness. If a company reports a negative gross profit margin, it implies that the selling price of its goods or services is lower than the cost it took to manufacture its products or provide its services. Such a situation is fairly uncommon as most companies are able to price their products above their costs. In this article, I would like to explore two companies which had recently reported negative gross profit (or a gross loss), resulting in a negative gross profit margin.

What Investors Should Know About Share Buybacks by Singapore-Listed Companies in October 2018
Companies which buyback their shares could signal to the market that their shares are undervalued. Last month, 29 companies repurchased 30.8 million shares or units for a total amount of S$59.9 million, according to a report released by the Singapore Exchange Limited (SGX: S68) recently. The October buyback was 36% down from September’s buyback of S$94 million.

These 3 Companies Have Repurchased Their Shares This Week
One of the best investors in the world, Warren Buffett, is a big advocate of companies buying back their shares for the correct reasons.

3 Shares to Help Pay for Your Child’s University Education
Saving for our children’s university education can be a huge financial commitment. A four-year undergraduate program in Singapore’s public universities costs an average of S$40,000 for local students. The figure, which excludes other miscellaneous fees, is around a third more than a decade ago. With inflation, the fees will only increase in the coming years. Although there are a myriad of options to save up for your child’s tertiary education, investing in shares might be the best of them all. With a time horizon of some 20 years before a newborn hits university-age, putting money in the stock market for the very long-term becomes almost risk-free. With that, here are three shares that you can consider investing in to pay for your precious one’s university education. Company #1

4 Stocks This Week (Low Beta) [26 October 2018] – Delfi; CMT; UOA; IHH
As Halloween approaches, even the stock market has got in on the act. The Straits Times Index (STI), a benchmark index in Singapore, spooked investors by dipping below 3000 for the first time since January 2017. Eventually closing at 2972.02 on 26 October 2018 (Friday), the STI has lost nearly 13.4% since the start of 2018. In fact, since the beginning of October, it has fallen close to 8.7%. This drop, and heightened volatility, has caused many investors to take a tepid approach to investing in the stock markets. This brings us to our topic for this week – Low Beta. Beta Beta is a measure of the volatility of the stock compared to the rest of the market. A stock with a beta of 1 indicates that its price moves in tandem with the benchmark.
