4 Stocks This Week (STI Reserve List) [15 Mar 2019] – Keppel REIT; MCT; MLT; MNACT
This week, news broke that big-name furniture and electronics retailer Courts Asia will be delisted from SGX after its acquisition by Nojima Asia Pacific, who would own 90.07% of Courts Asia, thus causing it to not fulfil the free float requirement to remain public. This comes after last month’s news that Singapore’s third largest telco, M1, will also be delisted, following its acquisition by a joint venture between Keppel Corporation and Singapore Press Holdings.

No sign of governance
By Mak Yuen Teen There’s a phrase that when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. I hope that this is not the philosophy of the Singapore Exchange (SGX), which has given investors quite a few lemon IPOs over the past few years, and especially in the past year. This has further soured investors’ sentiments, already severely dented by corporate scandals, spectacular collapses and controversial delistings. Copyright for cartoon belongs to Mak Yuen Teen There is the case of Y Ventures, the data analytics-driven e-commerce firm, which listed on Catalist in July 2017, that in January this year announced material errors in its unaudited results for the six months ended 30 June 2018. The largest error was related to inventories and it turned out that it was using Excel to reconcil

Haw Par share price danced with UOB
From $3.00 in 2009 to $14 in 2018, Haw Par share price enjoyed one of the most incredible bull runs in Singapore Exchange as it surged more than four fold within the span of a decade. The berserk run of Haw Par share price certainly created much wealth for long-time investors but its bullish run seemed to hit the skid for the past one year. What has changed that caused the malaise form of Haw Par share price? Since my last coverage on this counter in 2017, Haw Par share price continued to amaze me with its adventure. Unknown to many investors, this counter is actually a proxy for UOB share price. This is because Haw Par Corp holds 73 million UOB shares under its Investments segment. If investors observed Haw Par share price carefully, it would mirror exactly that of UOB share price for the

Start Small in Investing in Order to Grow Big Over Time
One common complaint I commonly hear from younger friends and ex-colleagues is that they are short of capital and therefore do not have enough money to invest in the stock market. Their view is that one needs to have a certain minimum level of capital to be able to invest, and they feel crippled by their lack of funds and end up feeling very discouraged. To me, this seems like an excuse for some for not taking action to invest, rather than it being a justifiable reason not to. Let’s explore this in more detail, and I’ll explain why having limited capital should not be a hindrance to successful investing. Starting out, starting small Personally, I started my investment journey with a grand total of just S$5,000 back in 2004, as I did not have a lot of savings back then. Young ad

Why It’s Difficult To Forecast Earnings
Analysts and business forecasters make a living out of earnings forecasts. Armed with complex financial models and spreadsheets, sell-side analysts confidently use their predicted earnings as inputs in order to churn out the expected fair value of a listed company. At times, there is a wide range of values for earnings and the discrepancies between actual and forecast can be significantly large. So why is it so tough to forecast earnings, and how should investors react to such forecasts? How Forecasts Are Compiled First of all, let’s take a look at how forecasts are made. One method is for analysts to extrapolate a recent trend of say, earnings increasing by 10% per year. They then extrapolate this into the future by assuming the trend continues for another x years or so, then end it

CapitaLand Mall Trust unit price in explosive form
What a breath-taking form! For the past one year, numerous blue chips in Singapore Exchange suffered from a terrible loss of form, causing many wealth builders to lose their pants. Many REITs were not spared from the rout either. CapitaLand Mall Trust unit price is one of the rarest of rare counters to buck the trend to enjoy a magnificent rally. The gravity-defying form of CapitaLand Mall Trust unit price is certainly intriguing as the unit price remained bullish even after a massive $277.6 million private placement exercise in November 2018. With distribution yield of 4.8% and Price/Book Value of 1.19 as of 11 February 2018, current CapitaLand Mall Trust unit price is indeed attractive.

3 Things to Consider Before You Invest Your CPF Money
For many Singaporeans, their Central Provident Fund (CPF) may contain the bulk of their savings. Besides the 20% of one’s paycheck that each individual has to contribute each month, employers are also required to contribute an additional 17%, which adds up to 37% of your stated monthly salary. As such, your CPF account can grow reasonably quickly. As it stands, most Singaporeans either do not touch their CPF money and let it accrue interest, or they take the money out to pay for their Housing Development Board (HDB) home or other properties. This is a reasonable use of CPF funds. However, there are many other ways you can make use of your CPF. The CPF Investment Scheme offers Singaporeans the chance to invest their CPF money into a variety of investment instruments such as insurance, uni
