Singapore Press Holdings Ltd’s Third Quarter Results: Profit up but Here Are 3 Reasons to Be Cautious
Singapore Press Holdings Ltd (SGX: T39), or SPH for short, has faced multiple challenges in recent years. Disruption from digital platforms and advertisers shifting their marketing dollar away from traditional newspapers and toward digital platforms like Google and social media have affected readership and profitability at SPH. SPH is trying to reinvent itself by transforming into a digital-driven company, but there seems to be a lot more to work on. In the third quarter of 2018, even though its operating profit increased, there were still signs of cracks in its business that could affect profitability going forward.

The Week Ahead: Earnings Season Kicks Off With SPH
The Singapore earnings season kicks off with third-quarter numbers from Singapore Press Holdings (SGX: T39). The media and property company reported a 25% drop in second-quarter earnings in April. The owner of the Straits Times said it will focus on investments with steady cash yield to generate new sources of revenue and profit. SPH subsidiary SPH REIT (SGX: SK6U) will also announce results. On the economic front, America will report inflation numbers for June. Headline inflation is expected to edge up again to 2.9%. In May, inflation increased to 2.8% because of higher gasoline prices. China will also report inflation numbers for June that are expected to show an increase from 1.8% to 2%. Of more interest, though, will be June’s trade surplus with the rest of the world.

Property Stocks Drag the Straits Times Index Down This Week
The Singapore stock market, as represented by the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI), tumbled 2.4%, or around 77 points, to 3,191.8. Other than trade war fears between the US and China, the market was spooked by the announcement of higher stamp duty rates and tighter loan limits for residential property purchases here. For the week, of the 30 index components, 20 were in the red while the remaining 10 were in the green. The big decliners among the Straits Times Index companies were property stocks. City Developments Limited (SGX: C09) plunged 13.4% to S$9.46; UOL Group Limited (SGX: U14) tumbled 12.1% to S$6.70; and CapitaLand Limited (SGX: C31) slipped 5.4% to S$2.99.

These 2 Billion-Dollar REITs Are Trading Close To Their Respective 52-Week Low Prices
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 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 42 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 REITs? In my ca

2 Straits Times Index Stocks That Investors Should Not Touch
Many investors commonly wrongly assume that just because a stock is a constituent of the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI), it automatically makes for a safe investment. This is far from the truth. Yes, STI component stocks are some of the largest companies listed here. However, just like any other company, it is possible that an industry disruption or a poor management team may lead to negative stock returns. A prime example is Noble Group Limited (SGX: CGP). The commodities trading company, which was one of the 30 constituent stocks of the STI, was riding high just a few years ago. However, its fortunes turned dramatically in 2015 after a short-sell report rocked the company. Mounting debt, increasing operating losses and poor management contributed to its sudden decline.

Is Singapore Press Holdings Ltd a Buy?
The market has certainly not been kind to Singapore Press Holdings Ltd (SGX: T39), or SPH for short. In the last five-year period, SPH’s share price has dropped 37% from its peak of S$4.35 to its current price of S$2.65. With its price just slightly above its five-year low of S$2.44, investors might be wondering whether now is a good time to buy shares of the STI component stock. In addition to its stock being near a multi-year low, some might point to the fact that at its current price, SPH’s price-to-earnings (PE) ratio of 12.5 is well below its long-term average historical PE ratio. This may suggest that SPH might be considered a bargain. However, there’s another way to look at this. Despite the seemingly low valuation, SPH has faced multiple challenges that have eroded into its c

Singapore Press Holdings Ltd’s Recent History Illustrates The Challenges It Has Been Facing
With its plethora of newspapers and radio stations, Singapore Press Holdings Ltd (SGX: T39), or SPH for short, is by far the most dominant news outlet in Singapore. However, despite its undisputed position in Singapore’s news segment, the emergence of easily accessible free news through the Internet has resulted in declining print readership and lower advertising revenue for SPH. The move away from traditional print advertising to digital advertisements have also added to its woes. The challenges that SPH faces have been well publicised and SPH’s financial results have clearly illustrated that they are in danger of falling victim to digitalisation. Here are some worrying trends that SPH investors should take note of. Consistently declining revenue SPH’s revenue has declined from S$1.

Singapore’s Top 5 Blue-Chip Stocks with the Highest Dividend Yields
Dividends provide investors with a steady stream of cash flow. Even among the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) components, there are a handful of companies that have dividend yields of more than that of the SPDR STI ETF (SGX: ES3), an exchange-traded fund that can be used as a proxy for the STI, which stood at 3%, as of 21 June 2018. With that, let’s look at the top five STI stocks with the highest dividend yields (as of 21 June 2018): 1. StarHub Ltd (SGX: CC3) takes the top spot with a dividend yield of 9.9%. Shares in the telco have fallen more than 40% year-to-date, translating to the high dividend yield. For the first quarter ended 31 March 2018, revenue tumbled 4.7% year-on-year to S$561.0 million. The decline in the top-line was mainly due to lower revenue from mobile and pay TV ser
