‘Tis the season to be wary for minority shareholders at three companies
First published in Business Times on December 19, 2019 By Mak Yuen Teen On April 7, 2019, ASTI Holdings (ASTI), Advanced Systems Automation (ASA) and Dragon Group International (DGI) announced that Michael Loh Soon Gnee was resigning as executive chairman (EC) and CEO. Each company first made a general announcement, followed by three cessation announcements, with each subsequent announcement slightly “clarifying” the effective date of his departure. Mr Loh, who is 63, will resign from these companies with effect from April 7, 2020 – one year from the date of the announcement – “or such earlier date as the Board may determine”. The reason was “to reduce his workload and travel commitments due to his age and family commitments”.

Compliance with SGX listing rules is still poor
First published in Business Times on January 14, 2020 By Chew Yi Hong and Mak Yuen Teen On Oct 29, 2019, at 7.57 am, Sakae Sushi responded to queries by Singapore Exchange (SGX) issued four days earlier regarding, among other things, the auditors’ basis for disclaimer of opinion and the supplemental information on directors who were seeking re-election. The annual general meeting (AGM) was to take place at 3 pm that day, and those who have lodged proxies would have done so before Sakae provided the information. Sakae was just one of at least 11 issuers in 2019 asked to provide the information required in Appendix 7.4.1 of the SGX Rulebook for each director seeking election/re-election at the AGM, after failing to do so in accordance with the new requirement.

4 Job Sectors In Singapore That Will Do Well In 2020
The job market in 2019 also performed better than its initial forecast, casting an upbeat outlook on the scenario for job creation and hiring in Singapore in 2020. The optimism surrounding the 2020 job market is further fueled when the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) corrected public falsehoods of rising local PMET retrenchment. The ManpowerGroup, a publicly-listed global workforce solutions company, conducted an Employment Outlook Survey for Q1 2020. The survey found that 79% of the 630 Singaporean employers surveyed plan to keep their workforce levels steady this year. On top of that, Singapore’s Q1 2020 Net Employment Outlook, which represents the difference in the percentage of employers expecting to increase and decrease, is set to increase by about 9%. With 2020’s job market seeming r

But even without at least a few hundred thousand dollars in investment capital, you can still invest in the property sector in Singapore. With numerous real estate developers listed on the Singapore Exchange (SGX), investors can pick and choose the different real estate stocks that they want to invest into.

4 Stocks This Week (New To STI) [3 January 2020] – Mapletree Logistics Trust; Mapletree Commercial Trust; Dairy Farm International; Venture Corp
In the first edition of our 4 Stocks This Week column in 2020, we zoom into the new companies that have been added into Singapore’s benchmark Straits Times Index (STI) in the past two years. When we invest in the STI, we are gaining exposure to a diverse and strong group of companies – or more commonly termed the 30 largest and most liquid companies – listed on the Singapore Exchange (SGX). Often, this is part of a passive investing strategy and to achieve market returns. While investors can take a hands-off approach and just let their investments grow over a long horizon, the STI itself is regularly reviewed and updated if there is a need.

Is Singapore Exchange Limited Overpriced?
Singapore Exchange Limited (SGX: S68), or SGX, has seen its share price soar to a new 5-year high of S$8.85 last Friday. SGX is Singapore’s sole stock exchange and provides a platform for the buying and selling of securities such as equities, derivatives, options, fixed income, and currencies. The bourse also provides clearing, settlement, and listing services to listed companies. With the share price hitting multiyear highs recently, investors may be wondering if SGX is getting too pricey. Remember that in investing, the aim is to buy shares of great companies at cheap valuations and to sell them if valuations get too lofty. However, the problem here is in determining what “lofty” means, as this is subjective and depends on myriad factors. There are several methods by w

6 things I learned from the 2019 SGX AGM
For many Singaporeans, the Singapore Exchange (SGX) is synonymous with our local stock market. But what many may not know is that SGX is also a leading multi-asset exchange that deals with bonds, derivatives, currencies, and commodities. In fact, SGX now generates most of its revenue from its derivatives segment which has seen strong growth over the past few years. In contrast, its equities segment has seen recent headwinds as SGX has struggled to win new listings on the Singapore stock market. Will growth in the derivatives market continue to overshadow equities? I decided to attend the company’s latest annual general meeting to learn more. Here are six things I learned from the 2019 SGX AGM: 1. Revenue and net profit both increased 8% year-on-year to S$910 million and S$319

Started in 2001, the Supplementary Retirement Scheme (SRS) is a voluntary initiative that forms part of Singapore’s multi-pronged strategy to help citizens, permanent residents (PRs) and foreigners start building up their retirement nest egg. As an incentive, those who contribute to their SRS accounts will receive a dollar-for-dollar tax relief up to $15,300 for citizens and PRs and $35,700 for foreigners. Note that this only applies if our personal income tax relief does not exceed $80,000 in the year of assessment.

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
