4 Stocks This Week (Sector Rotation) [18 October 2019] – Thai Beverage; Dairy Farm; DBS; Singtel
Sector rotation is an investment strategy which involves the movement of investment funds from one sector to another, in an attempt to beat the market return. The idea is simple, instead of holding equal weight in all sectors, an investor could potentially beat the market by holding a bigger proportion of his portfolio in strong sectors and a lower proportion of the portfolio in weaker sectors. This sector rotation strategy, when applied correctly, could result in higher returns over a period of time, as opposed to simple investing equally into the market as a whole. For example, one could favor aggressive stocks such as banks, which are likely to do well during periods of growth. During periods of uncertainty, defensive stocks such as telco companies may perform better. In this week’s e

The Art of Thinking Clearly: Part 10
Here we are again — back to looking at various fallacies and biases that can trip us up as investors. This is part 10 of the series, but amazingly, there are so many more types of biases that can affect and negatively impact our investment decision-making process. Note that these are all adapted from the book “The Art of Thinking Clearly” by Rolf Dobelli. The idea here is to know and understand these biases better so as to be able to avoid their pernicious effects and become better investors. While it is not possible to eliminate such biases completely, we can mitigate their effects by being aware and conscious of them when we make investment decisions.

4 Companies That Have a High Probability of Raising Their Dividends
Investors always want more dividends. This is why dividend-paying companies are so popular — they represent a cash return on our investment from profits generated by the business. The hunt is always on for companies that not only pay regular and consistent dividends, but also companies that raise them over the years. There are many reasons companies raise their dividends, but the most important one, in my view, is that the business is improving and generating more profit and free cash flow. This is the main reason great companies pay increasing dividends over time and can act as superb compounders of investors’ wealth. Another reason could be because the business generates excess cash flow that it does not require to maintain its business, and can thus pay out the rest as divi

10 things to know about SGX before you invest (updated 2019)
Singapore Exchange Limited (SGX) is a leading multi-asset exchange in Asia. It offers listing, trading, clearing, settlement, depository and data-based services of both securities and derivatives from Singapore. As of 30 September 2019, it is worth S$9.08 billion in market capitalisation. In this article, I’ll cover the performance for its three main segments, its annual financial results, and stock valuation. Here are 10 things to know about SGX before you invest: 1. The Equities and Fixed Income segment recorded a 14.5% year-on-year decline in revenue to S$347.5 million. The drop was mainly due to fewer bond and equity listings during the year, and a 17% drop in securities daily average traded value (SDAV). This led to a decrease in revenue in listing (-11%), securities cleari

Quick Thought Of The Week: Dumb
Picture the scene…. …. let’s say I own a couple or three apartments (which I don’t) within a condominium in Singapore. There’s nothing wrong with that. There are many wealthy individuals in Singapore who are lucky enough to be able to do that. Then one day I decide to sell one of my units. But instead of selling it on the open market, I sell it to myself. Yup, I write out a big fat cheque to myself…. …. What’s more, I sell it for a lot more than the average asking price on the market. Who is going to object to that? After all, I am both the buyer and the seller in the transaction. But what kind of effect might that have on my other properties, and also on properties in the vicinity that I don’t own. Chances are their prices could g

Want a Good Night’s Sleep? Buy These 3 Companies
Investors have been known to try all sorts of methods to obtain decent returns from the stock market, and some even use some risky and arcane methods that may land them good profits, but may take a huge psychological toll on the mind, too. My belief is that investments should generate steady and consistent returns while also providing investors with peace of mind. Investors should look for companies with stable operating characteristics, long-term demand, and a conservative capital structure. Strong balance sheets and consistent demand for their products and services will allow these companies to weather an economic downturn. Here are three such companies that could provide investors with peace of mind along with a good night’s sleep. 1. VICOM Limited VICOM Limited (SGX: V01) is a l

3 Secrets to Constructing a Strong Investment Portfolio
Constructing a strong and effective portfolio is never an easy task, and the investor is responsible for continually reviewing his positions and tweaking them to optimise his capital allocation. Aside from trying to maximise gains from the growth of the companies within the portfolio, the investor also has to be aware of risks and be able to position the portfolio to mitigate them. It can feel like an attempt to juggle ten balls with just two hands! In my years of investing, I have learnt a lot about how to manage my portfolio such that I capitalise on the gains, earn a steady income, and yet, ensure the risks are adequately mitigated. This knowledge was gleaned through an iterative process of learning from mistakes, due diligence on companies, and tweaking individual positions. Here are

Lendlease Global Commercial REIT: 10 Things You Should Know Before Subscribing

5 Steps to Picking Stocks That Crush Singapore’s Straits Times Index
If you are new to investing and don’t know where to begin when it comes to buying shares, you can consider buying an exchange-traded fund that tracks the performance of a stock market index, such as Singapore’s Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI). However, if you’re looking to beat the stock market and get outstripped returns, there are ways to do that, too. Just look at the five-year chart below showing the Straits Times Index pitted against Singapore Exchange Limited (SGX: S68), SATS Ltd (SGX: S58), and Straco Corporation Ltd (SGX: S85).Source: Yahoo!

3 Simple Steps to Better Understand a Company’s Business and History
When performing due diligence on a potential investment, it’s important for investors to know what to look for and how to dig up important aspects of a company to study. While the most obvious part of due diligence would be the financials, there also needs to be effort expended in finding out other qualitative aspects of the business, such as acquisition history and how a business reacts to hardship and challenges. It’s easier to illustrate these points using examples, and I will focus on two companies – Singapore Exchange Limited (SGX: S85) and Boustead Singapore Limited (SGX: F5D), also known as SGX and BSL, respectively. These two companies have had their fair share of ups and downs over the years, and represent good examples of how investors should look at their hist

4 Recession-Proof Stocks to Buy if You’re Worried About the Economy
With recent news articles on tumbling export numbers and downward revisions of Singapore’s GDP growth rate, investors cannot be blamed for feeling vexed and worried about their investments. It has been 10 full years since the Global Financial Crisis, and though recessions may feel like a thing of the past, history has shown that they do crop up time and again, though their exact timing is uncertain. Investors may rightfully be wondering if they are able to get through a potential recession unscathed, as such economic downturns reduce consumer demand, crimp people’s propensity for spending and make companies hesitate to commit capital for large projects or acquisitions. However, there are tried and tested ways of sailing through a downturn, and this is done by owning companies

Should You Own Singapore Exchange Limited for the Long Term?
Singapore Exchange Limited (SGX: S68), or SGX for short, is the only stock exchange in Singapore. In the last five years, SGX’s share price fluctuated between S$7.00 to S$ 8.50. At S$ 8.49 today (as of writing), its share price has not changed much over the period. This caught my attention and got me interested in finding out more about the company. In particular, I want to understand: Does it have a high-quality business? This question is important. If SGX has a high-quality business, this could be an investment opportunity. Unfortunately, there’s no easy answer to the question. But, a simple metric can help shed some light on the question – the return on invested capital (ROIC).
