How Can Investors Partake in Vietnam’s Growth Without Buying Shares in the Country?
Vietnam is one of the chief investment destinations in Southeast Asia. With the advantages of a strategic location, stable gross domestic product growth, and competitive labour costs, the country attracts a significant amount of investment capital every year. So, it was not surprising that in 2017, several Singapore-listed companies either expanded their presence in, or set up shop in, Vietnam. Investors who wish to have an exposure to the country – one of the fastest growing economies in the world – can look to the aforementioned companies, without having to go through the trouble of finding Vietnam stocks to invest in. One example is Thai Beverage Public Company Limited (SGX: Y92). Last month, an indirect-associate of Thai Beverage, Vietnam Beverage, won a bid to buy a 53.6% stake in

Time To Take Profit On Which Retail REITs?
Singapore’s retail real estate investment trusts (REITs) are in an unenviable position. Retail REITs might be enjoying a cyclical recovery from a rebound in tourism and a more constructive economic landscape, but analysts from Maybank Kim Eng believes that these are not enough to overcome the headwinds. Rising rates, peak new supply in 2018 and fair valuations will be the first challenge for retail REITs in 2018. Following that, structural challenges from ecommerce continue to erode sales of retailers. Sales leakages from Singaporeans increasingly spending overseas also remain a structural concern. Be Highly Selective For Retail REITs For those who are looking to invest in the retail REIT sector, investors should be highly selective given the structural challenges. According to Maybank K

The Week Ahead: SPH Kicks Off Another Earnings Season
It’s time for another earnings season, as Singapore Press Holdings (SGX: T39) steps into the spotlight. It’s been a torrid time for the publisher of The Straits Times. Its shares have fallen by almost a quarter over the last 12 months. So, the media company has been on an accelerated mission to cut jobs. While the print side of the business appears to be under pressure, other parts of the business, such as property, seem to be doing well. On the economic front, the US will report inflation numbers for December, which could have a bearing on the Fed’s next interest-rate decision. Headline inflation is expected to remain unchanged at 2.2%, while core inflation is forecast to creep up from 1.7% to 1.8%. China will report inflation numbers too.

The Rigorous Investment Rule that Turned $1 to A Stunning $89
The late Katharine Graham never thought that she would be a CEO.   But in 1963, Graham’s husband unexpectedly committed suicide, and she found herself thrusted into the lead role at the US-based newspaper publisher, The Washington Post Company. At that moment, she had been mostly unemployed (since the birth of her first child) for some twenty years prior to her husband’s death. To add to that, when she was appointed CEO, she was the only female CEO of a Fortune 500 company. The task seemed impossible. But not for Graham. Graham’s remarkable story was chronicled in the excellent investing book The Outsiders . From the company’s initial public offering (IPO) in 1971 to the time she stepped down as chairman in 1993, The Washington Post Company turned eve

The 2 Scariest Words for Any Singapore Company
Singapore companies have always competed locally. For the successful ones, the reward can be significant. For instance, local telco StarHub Ltd (SGX: CC3) generated almost S$2.4 billion in revenue in 2016, all of it from Singapore. Transportation firm ComfortDelGro Corporation Ltd (SGX: C52), which is a leader in Singapore’s taxi, bus, and vehicle inspection markets, had over S$2.5 billion in revenue come from within Singapore in 2016. Yet, there are signs that competition is no longer just local for Singapore companies. It is also coming from beyond the Lion City’s shores. This should worry any Singapore company. The cable cowboy Global competition is not just a Singapore problem. To explain the threat in more exact terms, I would defer to John Malone, the Chairman of the US-based
