3 Reasons To Keep Faith During Tough Times
Investors periodically face tough periods in the market where nothing they do seems to work, and investments may deliver negative returns in the short-term. While the idea of long-term investing remains sound, investors may feel temporarily discouraged and emotionally drained by the negative returns and find it hard to focus on a multi-year investment time horizon. As with any aspect of life, challenges do pop up now and then and make us question if what we are doing is sound, or whether we should take action and switch paths. With that, here are three reasons to keep the faith despite facing challenges and hurdles. Stock Markets Rise Over The Long-Term Economic cycles and industry cycles cause revenues and profits to fluctuate, and this is a normal aspect of business and should not alarm

Is Liquidity Important For Share Prices?
It’s interesting that a friend of mine brought up the topic of share prices, and whether liquidity (or the lack of it) would constrain proper price discovery. To explain a little more, price discovery is a term which indicates that a particular share is transacted at what is understood to be the approximate fair value of the company. If price discovery is poor or weak, then the transacted price may distort the fair value of the company or be grossly inaccurate. Some reasons for this could be — liquidity issues, neglect, lack of understanding of the company or a one-time major negative event which has temporarily weakened the company but does no long-term damage. In this article, I will be looking at the topic of liquidity. Defining Liquidity – Willing Buyer, Willing Selle

Quick Thought Of The Week: Shutdown
So, the US Government is over for now. Should we be relieved? The shutdown should tell us that there is something very fundamentally wrong with the way that America is run. Whether we agree or disagree with Trump’s building of a wall to separate Mexico and America, a shutdown is not the way to go about sorting out budgetary differences. How is it possible that one man can hold an entire country to ransom, just because he hasn’t been allowed to have everything his own way. For goodness sake, America is the largest and most developed economy on our planet. Yet it behaves no better than a banana republic. The damage that the shutdown has done to the US economy may be temporary. It is estimated trim about 0.1% of America’s economic growth for every week that the shutdown was in place.

UOL Group Limited Is Trading Close To Its 52-Week Low Share Price: Is It Cheap Now?
UOL Group Limited (SGX: U14) is a property company that is involved in property development and management, property investments, and hotel businesses. At the current price of S$6.26, UOL’s shares are just slightly higher than the 52-week low price of S$6.00. This raises a question: Is UOL cheap now? This question is important because if the firm’s shares are cheap, it might be a good opportunity for investors. Unfortunately, there is no easy answer. However, we can still get some insight by comparing UOL’s current valuations with the market’s valuation. The three valuation metrics I will focus on are the price-to-book (PB) ratio, price-to-earnings (PE) ratio, and dividend yield.

Which Blue-Chip Property Developer Is The Cheapest Now?
Property stocks took a beating in July when the Singapore government implemented additional property cooling measures. Since then, private condominium prices have declined for two straight months, and analysts expect further corrections in the months ahead. That said, I still believe the long-term prospects of property in Singapore remains sound. The Monetary Authority of Singapore has said that it wants property prices to rise reasonably and in tandem with wage increases. As such, over the much longer time frame, property prices should increase as wages rise in Singapore. With property stocks trading some way off their peak, now may be a good time to look for bargains. Here’s a quick look at how the three blue-chip property stocks are valued now.
