5 Things I Like About DBS Group Holdings Ltd’s Latest Earnings Update
DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05), or DBS, is one of the three major banks based out of Singapore, along with United Overseas Bank Ltd and Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited. The company has recently announced its 2018 fourth-quarter earnings update, and there are five positive things I think investors should take note. But first, let’s run through the company’s numbers. The results Here’s a quick summary of some key financial metrics for the quarter. Source: DBS’s Result Presentation All metrics improved on a year-on-year basis, but there’s more to these numbers.

The Week Ahead DBS, UOB And OCBC
It’s a big week for earnings with Singapore’s three big banks and two giants from the property sector set to report. Geopolitical and economic headwinds had no impact on third-quarter results at DBS Group (SGX: D05). However, Singapore’s biggest bank did miss market forecast when it posted numbers in November. But Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation (SGX: O39) topped forecasts when it reported a 12% jump in third-quarter profits. That was thanks to a rise in net interest income as a result of growth in customer loans. United Overseas Bank (SGXU11) also chimed in with a surge in quarterly profits last time. Earnings climbed 14% on strong loan growth and an improvement in net interest margin. In November, CapitaLand (SGX: C31) reported a 13.6% rise in third-quarter profits. The propert

Haw Par Corporation Ltd Is Trading Close to Its 52-Week Low. Is It Cheap Now?
Haw Par Corporation Ltd (SGX: H02) is the maker of the Tiger Balm brand of ointment. Other than its healthcare arm, it also has strategic stakes in UOL Group Limited and United Overseas Bank Ltd. At a current price of S$12.22, Haw Par’s stock price is 4.8% higher than its 52-week low of S$11.65. Is Haw Par cheap now? If so, it might be a good opportunity for investors to start or add to a position in the stock. There is no easy answer to the question “Is this stock cheap?”, but we can get some insight by comparing Haw Par’s current valuation with the market’s valuation using three common metrics: the price-to-book (P/B) ratio, price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio, and dividend yield.

How Did the Singapore-Listed Banks Perform in 2018?
In 2018, the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) posted a 6.5% decline in total return (which consists of capital gains and dividends), as revealed in a recent report by the Singapore Exchange. However, the three banks that belong to the index did better for the year. Let’s look at out how each of the banks performed in 2018. DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05) DBS, the biggest bank in Singapore, posted a total return of 1.2% last year. The bank’s high dividend yield of around 5% allowed the total return to stay in the positive territory despite the fall in share price. For the nine months ended 30 September 2018, DBS’ total income went up by 12% to a record of S$9.94 billion mainly due to higher net interest income, which rose 16% to S$6.63 billion.

DBS, UOB or OCBC – Which Has The Best Financial Track Record? Round 2
In Singapore, the three major listed banks are DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05), Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited (SGX: O39) and United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11). After peaking in April 2018, these banks have seen their stocks price declining for the next few months, down by more than 20% from their respective peaks. The decline in the banks’ stocks price might draw some interest from investors. One of this group of investors is the Singapore dividend investors.

Institutional Investors Bought These 3 Singapore Shares Towards the End of 2018
There are many ways to find investment ideas. Some useful ways 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.
