Singapore Press Holdings Media Segment May Be Reporting Losses
The announcement of further retrenchment of 140 staff by Singapore Press Holdings ("SPH") seems to be pointing to losses in the Media segment. This is really bad news. Hopefully, with the layoff of 140 staff, this will bring back the medium term financial results for Media to at least sustain itself on a break-even point. This is one of my key assumption. Else it means that the property segment will be subsiding a loss-making business which does not make any sense for its long term viability.  Key Highlights:PayScale Industry Singapore Media BenchmarkOne off impairment charges of S$8Mil in Q4 FY2020 for the layoff of 140 staff from Media Solutions Division and SPH Magazines. Strangely, no cost savings numbers were furnished. But let's do a simple mathematical extrapolation o

Investment Portfolio Updates-9th August 2020
It has been a long time since I last updated my investment portfolio. The March'20 market crash was very sudden. I have remained invested mostly throughout this dark period. The major change I made was to shift out more of my more stable REITs from my CDP account into the margin account to avoid the possibility of a margin call in the event of a sucker's rally and to prepare for another potential market crash.1. Retail REITsThe retail REITs which I am holding in the margin account such as SPH REIT, Frasers Centrepoint Trust and Lendlease right now are still down by 20% to 30% from the pre-market crash. Dividends have been cut drastically also. I remain cautiously optimistic that once the COVID-19 vaccine become successfully rolled out by end of the year or early next year, the devastating

Singapore Press Holdings Severely Undervalued- Possible New Growth Engine Into Fast Growing High Tech Industry Data Centres
It is ironic that many investors have been dumping Singapore Press Holdings ("SPH") and proclaiming that media is dead and the way forward is to invest in high tech business with data centres such as in Mapletree Industrial Trust. Then on 29 June 2020, SPH announced a joint venture with Keppel Data Centres Holding Pte Ltd to develop and operate data centre facilities at 82 Genting Lane.I have actually been to SPH's Genting Lane premise before to perform an external audit on SPH Magazine subgroup many years back. It was crazy then as SPH had many subsidiaries and there were many different group of auditors being dispatched to its various premises (main one at Toa Payoh) to rush out the year end reporting.   1.

Singapore Press Holdings Stock Crash in May 2020- Buy More Or Worst Yet To Come?
Singapore Press Holdings (“SPH”) seemed to be plagued with bad luck recently and its stock performance had dropped to an all-time low level towards the end of May 2020. As at the beginning of FY2020, SPH price was still at S$2.20 per share. On 29 May 2020, its price declined sharply again (yes, another sharp drop since the March 2020 price collapse) to a price of S$1.25 per share and a 52 week low from the day before price of S$1.46 per share. This represented a spectacular loss in value of 43.2% relative to the beginning year’s price. The million dollar question on every investor’s mind is whether the price will decrease or crash any further to less than S$1 per share.1. So what had happened to cause a 12.3% decline within a day? On 28 May 2020, SPH price was still hovering a

Singapore blue chips: Are they a safe haven?
Blue-chip stocks are shares of larger, well-established companies with a long track record of financial stability and performance. These companies normally have national brand recognition and are leaders in their industry. A blue-chip stock is also usually included in major market indexes that serve as a benchmark for the country’s stock market. For example, blue chips like the FAANG stocks are included in the S&P 500 index, which measures the stock performances of 500 large companies listed on the U.S. stock exchanges. Singapore’s S&P 500 equivalent is the Straits Times Index (STI). The STI tracks the performance of the top 30 companies listed on the SGX. Hence, STI component stocks can be considered as Singapore’s blue chips that are listed on the SGX. Here is

Grandparents Blue Chip Stock SPH (远虑近忧)
Singapore Press Holdings (SGX: T39), SPH, is a well-known blue chip stock with 35 years of history of press business. It is popular especially among “grandparents” level of investors as a passive income generator through dividend payment. In the past (over 20 years ago), there was little competition in this monopoly business, therefore SPH could gain income easily through advertisements with more circulations of hardcopy newspapers. However, in the internet era over the past 10+ years, disruptive technologies have changed the rules of the game, providing more channels of news (mostly free) through webpages, blogs, videos and social media (eg. Facebook). As a result, number of SPH newspapers readers have been declining over the past decade (while Facebook and other internet u

Developer SPH and Kajima Slashed Woodleigh Residences Price by 10%-13% from $2000psf to starting from $1733psf For Relaunch in May 2019.
Interestingly today, my property agent messaged me that Singapore Press Holdings ("SPH") and its partner Kajima had slashed the price of Woodleigh Residences by 10% to 13% from S$2,000psf to as low as S$1,733psf. This was despite their initial assertion that the VVIP launch in October 2018 was a resounding success with over 60% of the launched units sold at an average price of 2,000psf. However, for the re-launch of Woodleigh Residences in May 2019, the developer SPH and Kajima must have decided that the risk of the market downturn may not be worth it and started slashing prices drastically in order to move more units. After all, the developer was only able to sell 30 units on the first weekend of its initial launch albeit declaring that 60% were sold by proclaiming that they only launched
