3 Companies That Stand to Benefit from PSA’s Shift to Tuas
The Singapore government has announced the shifting of the current Port of Singapore Authority (PSA) container terminals located at Tanjong Pagar and Pulau Brani to Tuas, where a new mega-port is on track for completion in 2040. This is a massive, multiyear project involving lots of detailed planning, construction, and logistics. The first phase of the new port’s construction is on track for completion in 2021 and involves massive reclamation works over on the west side of Singapore. With the shift going as planned, significant amounts of prime land will thus be freed up in the central and southern region of Singapore, which the government has set aside for rejuvenation (known as the Greater Southern Waterfront project, or GSW). As investors, it’s always useful to look ahead a

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

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! Finance The trio of companies has handily beaten the Singapore stock market over the past five years.

4 Signs to Assess If an Economic Downturn Is Imminent
Many companies’ fortunes are inextricably tied to the economy, as they rely on supply chains and consumer demand to power their business activities. Investors who are vigilant should be able to pick out signs of corporate weakness just by observing the financials and metrics and reading up on the management discussion and analyses (MD&A). Here are four clear indicators that can serve investors well as they watch out for red flags impacting the economy. Note that some of these aspects may be company or industry-specific, but if a majority of companies report such attributes, investors can probably conclude that a weakened economy is to blame. 1. Lower profits or profits turning to losses When companies start to report lower year-on-year profits, this is a sign that economic indic

3 Potential Ways for Straco Corporation Limited to Grow Its Business
Straco Corporation Limited (SGX: S85) is an operator of tourism attractions in both Singapore and China. The group owns two aquariums in China: Shanghai Ocean Aquarium (SOA) and Underwater World Xiamen (UWX), as well as the Lixing Cable Car located in Xi’An and the rights to develop Chao Yuan Ge, a historical heritage site. In addition, Straco also owns 90% of the Singapore Flyer, a giant observation wheel located in Singapore. Many investors perceive Straco to be a dividend stock, as the group has paid consistent and even growing dividends over the years. After its high-profile announcement of the purchase of the Singapore Flyer back in August 2014, the group has quietened down, and there have been no major corporate updates since then. After reading up on the group and studying it

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

3 Companies With Strong Cash-Generating Abilities
Investors should remember that investing is not always smooth-sailing and that businesses will face constant ups and downs even as they enjoy multi-year growth. As companies report their results on a quarterly basis, there is even more “lumpiness” in revenue and profits due to the timing of recognition of various parcels of work or contracts. The important thing is not to fixate solely on the profit figure, but to also cast a critical eye on the cash flow generation capability of the company. As profits may fluctuate depending on revenue recognition principles, cash flow is generally a better method to assess if a business is doing well. After all, cash represents the lifeblood of the business, and consistent free cash flow (FCF) generation is the hallmark of a great business
