The Week Ahead: Hang Onto Your Hats
Singapore’s fourth-quarter earnings season kicks off with Singapore Press Holdings (SGX: T39) stepping into the spotlight on Monday. In July, the publisher of The Straits Times said third-quarter profits jumped 64% to S$47 million. This was thanks to lower impairment charges that boosted operating profits. Meanwhile, SPH is focussing on acquiring cash-yielding real estate assets overseas. SPH is also teaming up with Keppel Corporation (SGX: BN4), which also reports earnings next week, to buy Singapore’s smallest telecom company M1 (SGX: B2F). Keppel said in July that stronger earnings from its property and infrastructure divisions pushed up second-quarter profits by 44%. The industrial conglomerate added that the recent rise in oil prices has prompted growing optimism in the Offshore

How You Can Benefit from Investing in This Recession-Proof Sector That Has Even GIC and Mapletree on Board
Earlier this year, Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund, GIC, formed a joint venture with the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and The Scion Group to buy a student housing portfolio in the United States for around US$1.1 billion. Mapletree, a non-listed real estate giant in Singapore, is also in the purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA) market. Under the Mapletree Global Student Accommodation Private Trust, Mapletree has 35 student accommodation assets located in 22 university cities across the United Kingdom and the United States. Money is flowing into the PBSA market due to the higher returns of student accommodation assets compared to commercial spaces and residential housing. Student housing is also recession-proof, and with a supply-demand mismatch (more students than beds ava

Investors’ Corner (United Overseas Bank, M1, Valuetronics Holdings, Soilbuild Business Space REIT)
United Overseas Bank Price – $26.85 Target – $33.30 The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) raised the US federal funds rate (FFR) by 25 basis points (bps) on 26 Sep-2018, and indicated the possibility of another FFR hike in December with three more to follow next year. Historically, there is a positive correlation between FFR and 3-month SIBOR, which has also risen to an average of 1.63% in 3Q18 from 1.51% in the prior quarter representing a 12 bps q-o-q increment. This will help to widen the 3Q18 net interest margin for United Overseas Bank (UOB). Furthermore, healthy sales in recent property launches indicated that the Government’s property cooling measures in early July might have limited impact on mortgage growth. Meanwhile, UOB pressed on with its plans for a digital bank, whi

Institutional Investors Were Buying These 3 Shares In September
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. Hence, it may be useful to keep a close eye on what they are doing, as a way to generate ideas. In this article, I will look at three Singapore stocks that were among the top 10 shares that saw the highest net purchases in dollar

Acquisition Stirs Excitement On The Local Bourse
In line with markets’ anticipation, the Federal Reserve raised interest rates by 25 basis points in September, bringing the benchmark rate to a range of 2 percent to 2.25 percent. The central bank also indicated its intention to tighten once more in December and three more times next year. Aside from the Federal Open Market Committee, the United States came to an agreement with Canada, along with Mexico, on a revised trade deal called the USMCA to replace the current NAFTA. The new deal gives the US greater access to Canada’s dairy market and allows extra imports of Canadian cars.

M1 Takeover Bid Is Sparking Interest In SG’s Telco Companies
The telco sector isn’t the sexiest recently. But in the past week, the spotlight has shone on the telco sector, thanks to Keppel Corp’s plans to consolidate in the mobile industry. Keppel Corp announced last week that it is launching a buyout offer together with Singapore Press Holdings to take over M1. Currently, Keppel Corp owns 19.3 percent of M1 while SPH owns 13.5 percent of M1. They are looking to acquire Axiata Group’s 28.7 percent stake in M1 to become an individual majority shareholder. According to analysts, this will allow the new major shareholder to dictate the business strategy. Furthermore, the deal will allow M1 to utilise Keppel’s datacentre assets to supplement its weak enterprise segment. M1 can also retail Keppel Electric’s energy to its home customers and bun

4 Stocks This Week (M1 Acquisition) [28 September 2018] – Keppel; Keppel T&T; SPH; M1
On Thursday (27 September), Keppel Corp and SPH announced that they will be making a pre-conditional voluntary general offer of $2.06 for the remaining shares in M1 that they do not own. Four listed companies are involved in the takeover offer of M1 – they are detailed below. M1 – Singapore’s 3rd Largest Telco Provider M1 is the third largest telecommunications provider in Singapore. The telecommunications industry itself has been heating up in recent years. In the past couple of years, the telecommunications market has become increasingly competitive. One main reason was the awarding of a fourth telco license to TPG Telecom, an Australia-based telco provider. This has also led to the introduction of products with tighter margins, such as the SIM-only plans, by all telco providers. L

M1 - Potential GO Dejavu ?
By now, you would have probably heard the news buzzing around surrounding the potential buyout for M1 takeover with two of its largest shareholder Keppel T&T which owns 19.3% and SPH which owns 13.5% dealing with a potential buyer on the cards. There’s not much details on the news that have been shared and I can understand why investors are eager to follow up on the story given that this feels like dejavu all over again. In early last year, the 3 big shareholders, namely Axiata, Keppel T&T and SPH went through a similar strategy review when the shares were trading back then around $2.15. Unfortunately, the deal seems to be off and from the way I read the deal, it seems that Axiata has not agreed to the selling while the latter two has preference over divesting their non-core

NetLink NBN Trust Price – $0.78 Target – $0.95 NetLink NBN Trust (NetLink) has dominant market share of 90% for residential and 35% for non-residential fibre connections. The group added 24,600 residential connections in 1Q19 representing a 2.1% q-o-q increase, and there is still an untapped market of 300,000 residential homes not on fibre broadband. Meanwhile, NetLink also added 900 non-residential connections over the same period rising 2.1% having a competitive advantage in areas outside of CBD and business parks due to its extensive nationwide coverage. Entry of the fourth mobile operator causes no concern as TPG Telecom would be a customer of NetLink relying on its NBAP connections for backhaul transmission.

12 things I learned from the 2018 SGX AGM
Singapore Exchange (SGX) is an equities, fixed income, derivatives, commodities, and foreign currency exchange. SGX operates the largest stock market exchange in Southeast Asia with nearly S$1 trillion in total market capitalisation of listed equities. SGX is also Asia’s largest debt securities exchange with more than 3,100 bonds from 47 countries listed. As an exchange operator and a regulator, SGX occupies two roles which are usually separated – for example, the independent Securities and Exchange Commission regulates the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq in the U.S. Because of its dual roles, SGX has had to deal with criticism about a potential conflict of interest between its commercial and regulatory operations.

With uncertainty about how escalating trade tensions between the US and China will play out, investors have been more risk-adverse, concerned about broader ripple effects on global economic growth. The same has been observed in the Singapore market. As you know, the Straits Times Index (STI) is made up of 30 of the largest and most liquid stocks listed on the Singapore Exchange (SGX). Last year saw one of the most amazing bull runs in recent years, with STI generating total returns of 22% in 2017.

Investing Basics: How to Find Value Stocks?
There are two broad strategies that investors typically use in stock investing, namely growth investing, and value investing. Made famous by Thomas Rowe Price, Jr., growth investing is the art of buying companies that are, well, growing. These companies are usually in its expansionary phrase, and often trade at a premium compared to more mature companies. Despite its higher price tag, growth companies can deliver great long-term returns if the company can fulfill, or exceed its potential. On the other hand, value investing, which was popularised by investing legend and author of the book “The Intelligent Investor”, Benjamin Graham, deals in the art of investing in undervalued stocks. Undervalued stocks may trade at a discount to their intrinsic value because the company is relatively u
