These 3 Singapore-Listed Companies Are Trading Close To Their 52-Week Lows
I’m a value investor. So, I like to search for companies that are trading at good value. A list of stocks that are near their respective 52-week lows is a good place to start my search for a good reason. These are the stocks that are either neglected or beaten down by investors. And, some of these stocks can be bargains in relation to their actual economic worth because market participants can at times react too negatively to certain companies that have sound long-term prospects but have experienced some short-term stumbles. As such, I will screen for stocks that are trading near 52-week lows nearly once every week. There are many stocks that pop up on my screen each time I run it.  So what are the companies that have shown up on this week’s list? Here are three of them: Source: SGX.

3 Blue-Chips That Have Fallen More Than 20% From Their 52-Week Highs
Warren Buffett once said that as an investor, it is important to be “fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.” The idea is simple. When everyone is buying shares in a company, it’s unlikely that the company’s shares will be a good bargain. On the other hand, when others are shying away from the shares of a company, we might be able to pick some up at a good price. How can we tell if investors are staying away from a company’s shares? By seeing if it has fallen hard in recent times. In this article, we will look at three blue-chip shares with prices that have declined significantly from their respective highs over the past year: SATS Ltd (SGX: S58), Thai Beverage Public Company Limited (SGX: Y92) and Keppel Corporation Limited (SGX: BN4).

Is Singapore Press Holdings a good buy? Part 1 / 2
One of the first ever articles I wrote (this was back in 2011) was on local companies with economic moats. This was really long ago and thanks to the power of the internet its still out there: Back then, I wrote:SPH is the dominant provider of printed newspaper and magazines in Singapore. It has done extremely well over the years. However, its economic moat has weakened somewhat in recent years with the rising popularity of the Internet.   Ah, if only I realized the significance of what I wrote.It was also one of the first companies I ever analyzed by familiarity seeing that it was within my simple circle of competence.

10 things I learned from the 2018 Singapore Press Holdings AGM
Singapore Property Holdings. Excuse me, I meant Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) is not the same as it was ten years ago. The newspaper industry has been disrupted by the Internet. More and more companies prefer to spend their advertising dollars on Facebook or Google — that’s where they can get the most bang for their buck by targeting consumers based on their demographics and interests, instead of blindly advertising to the masses.

3 Billion Dollar REITs That Are Trading Close To Their 52-Week Lows
One of the more popular types of investments in Singapore is the real estate investment trust (REIT). Due to the structure of REITs, they are required to pay out most of their taxable income to their unitholders; this results in them offering high distribution yields for investors. Moreover, since we’re currently in a relatively low interest rate environment, REITs, with their high yields, would seem like an attractive avenue for investors to earn income. But, not every REIT would be a good investment. And with around 41 REITs and stapled trusts (trusts that consist of a REIT and a business trust) in our local stock market, it’s important that investors attempt to separate the wheat from the chaff. So, where should we start in our hunt for potential investing opportunities amongst REIT

3 Top Dividend-Yielding Billionaire Shares That Had Outstanding Total Returns
In a recent report by the Singapore Exchange, the 10 best-performing billionaire shares, which have market capitalisations of more than S$1 billion, were revealed. The 10 companies have a focus on providing goods and services to consumers. They have averaged a total return (which includes capital gains and dividends) of 29% for 2018 year-to-date. Of those 10 stocks, I picked the top three companies with the highest dividend yields, which have more than the average yield of 2.5% (data as of 9 November 2018).

2 Trends Showing Why Singapore Press Holdings Limited’s Media Revenue Will Continue to Decline
By now, we should know that no business is immune from disruption. Even Singapore Press Holdings Limited (SGX: T39), the dominant newspaper provider in Singapore, is no different. In recent years, SPH’s Media segment has seen year-on-year declines in revenue. This is a consequence of consumers going online to receive news instead of from traditional print newspapers, leading to SPH’s print advertising business (which is under the Media segment) being on a consistent downward trend. In the financial year ended 31 August 2018 (FY2018), SPH’s Media segment experienced a 9.6% decline in revenue. Here are some reasons to believe the trend might continue. Print ad decline still in double digits Despite slightly slower declines than in FY2017, SPH’s print advertising reven

We are now in the busiest part of the earnings season. Given that many companies are reporting their results at the same time, it might be useful to categorise them into three buckets of positive, negative and mixed. In this article, I will look at two companies that have recently reported mixed results. M1 Ltd  (SGX: B2F)  is the first company that we will look at in this article. As a quick introduction, M1 is the smallest player within Singapore’s telecommunications industry. Its business can be broken down into four segments, namely, Mobile services, Fixed services, International Call services, and Handset sales. In its third quarter ended 30 September 2018, M1 reported that sales was up 10.1% year-on-year to S$274.6 million. Service revenue was up 1.9% year-on-year to S$190.2

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. In October, some companies were on blackout periods, which means that they cannot conduct share repurchases ahead of their earnings release.

Institutional Investors Were Selling These 3 Blue Chip Stocks Recently
There are many ways to find investment ideas. Some useful methods 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.

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. And that is, if the firm’s shares are below their intrinsic values, and the reinvestment opportunities into the company are not as attractive. With that, let’s look at three businesses picked randomly that have bought back their shares or units so far during the week, as of market open today. Singapore Exchange Limited (SGX: S68) Singapore Exchange (SGX) is the sole stock market operator in Singapore.
