3 Ways To Gain Exposure To Real Estate Through The Stock Exchange
It is no secret that Singaporeans love to invest in properties. And who can blame them? Over the past decade, Singapore’s property market has skyrocketed. A growing economy, scarce land supply and low-interest rates have resulted in increasing demand for property. These in turn have propelled prices of property in Singapore to among the most expensive in the world. Investors who had purchased property a few decades ago would likely have made a killing. However, despite its marvellous track record, there are limitations to investing in property in Singapore. For one, investors require a large capital outlay. There are also additional stamp duties for permanent residents and Singaporeans buying their second property. Additionally, property is an illiquid asset that can take months or even

Tre Ver likely to spearhead recovery for UOL group
UOL’s 2Q18 core PATMI of S$94.1m (-6% YoY) came in slightly below projections/consensus, which is attributed to the uneven recognition of profits from development property. We estimate that sold residential units surged 5x QoQ, to 145 units, helped by solid sales at 62%-sold Amber 45. Despite cooling measures, UOL has not changed its launch schedule for the three upcoming projects, which we believe is due to their competitive cost.

2 Resilient Property Stocks To Consider
The Singapore government stepped in to introduce cooling measures at the start of July to prevent Singapore’s property from overheating. Additional buyer stamp duty (ABSD) and tighter loan-to-value (LTV) limits were both adjusted to the surprise of the market. What Were The Property Cooling Measures Introduced? The ABSD was raised by five percentage points for Singapore citizens who are buying their second or subsequent residential properties. For Singaporeans buying their second home, the ABSD will be raised from seven percent to 12 percent. For those who are buying their third or subsequent home, ABSD will be raised from ten percent to 15 percent. The government also introduced an additional ABSD of five percent that is non-remittable for developers purchasing residential properties fo

Earnings Season: Blue-Chip Stocks In The Spotlight
It is that time of the year again when companies provide updates on how they have performed over the quarter. Many things have happened since the last quarterly earnings update. Globally, the ongoing trade conflict between China and the United States has led investors to shy away from companies that rely on exports. Manufacturing companies in Singapore have predictably taken a big hit in the process with share prices of some of the major companies spiraling down more than 30% from their peaks. In June, the US Federal Reserve raised the benchmark lending rate to 1.75%to 2%. This is already the second increase of the year, and the Fed has signalled for two more hikes in 2018 and possibly another four in 2019. Central bankers now expect the rate to end the year at 2.4% rather than 2.1% projec

Why You Should Be Investing In Singapore
As we enter 2H18, investors are now busy pruning their portfolio and re-allocating their cash into different markets. If you are one of them and looking for ideas on how you should re-allocate your portfolio, DBS thinks that Singapore should be one of the markets that you should overweight in your portfolio.

Property news round up 22 Jul 2018
Latest curbs could see developers lower prices up to 10% DEVELOPERS may trim prices of new launches by as much as 10 per cent from their earlier indications in response to the latest round of property cooling measures, with high-end homes likely to see bigger adjustments, analysts say. In downgrading their stock ratings across several developers, some have started pricing in a 5-10 per cent reduction in average selling prices (ASP) in their forecasts, though they note that it is too early for any developer to consider writedowns on their projects yet. Maybank Kim Eng property analyst Derrick Heng, who has priced in a 5-10 per cent ASP reduction in his projections, said: “While we expect a moderation in EBIT (earnings before interest and tax) margins to single digits for most projects

Institutional Investors Have Been Selling These 3 Stocks
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.

Two Stocks Downgraded To Hold With New Property Curbs
The Singapore Government announced a set of property cooling measures effective 6 July 2018 aimed at moderating home price growth. The authorities raised the Additional Buyer’s Stamp Duty (ABSD)  by 5 percentage points for owners of second and subsequent residential properties purchases as well as lifting Loan-to-Value (LTV) limits by 5 percentage point for all new housing loans. On the other hand, developers will now incur a higher remissible ABSD of 25 percent, on top of an additional 5 percent non-remittable ABSD for enbloc transactions. DBS expects the combined impact of the measures to hit buyers’ sentiments significantly, and projected that total sale volumes to fall to 9,000 to 10,000 units in 2018. Meanwhile, the curbs added further pressure on developers as the revised ABSD i

7 Blue-Chip Stocks That Might Be Affected By The New Property Cooling Measures
Last Thursday, the Singapore government made a surprise announcement that it is increasing the buyer stamp duty for private properties and tightening the loan-to-value limits. This comes as private property prices have risen to a four-year high after a frenzy of collective sales. These new regulations will not only affect property prices, but have also impact on some companies listed on the stock market. Here’s a quick list of stocks represented in the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) that might be affected.

Why the Recent Sell-Off for Property Stocks May Have Been Overdone
On Friday last week, property stock giants – City Developments Limited (SGX: C09), CapitaLand Limited (SGX: C31) and UOL Group Limited (SGX: U14) – plunged 15.4%, 6.0% and 13.5% respectively. This was a knee-jerk reaction to the surprise news that the Singapore Government is implementing additional property cooling measures. Investors are anticipating lower demand for Singapore residential property and lower returns on investments for future residential projects in Singapore. This is due to the fact that demand will be dampened and that developers will also have to incur an additional 5% stamp duty when they purchase land banks. That said, the reaction from the market seemed too drastic in my view. Here are a few reasons why. Other revenue streams All three property companies have mult

Blue-Chip Property Stocks Fell Hard on Friday: Are They Cheap Now?
Property stocks in Singapore nose-dived dramatically on Friday, following the announcement of new property cooling measures in Singapore. The Singapore government made a surprise announcement to increase the buyer stamp duty by 5% for everyone, except for Singaporean and permanent resident first-time home owners. In addition, it also tightened the loan-to-value limits by five percentage points. This would have an impact on investors looking to buy a second investment property in Singapore and also increases the down payment needed to purchase a home. This will most certainly put investors off, and also make it more difficult for home-buyers to purchase a private property due to the higher initial down payment. The lower demand for private homes will, in turn, affect property developers who

Investors Takeaway: 4 Big-Name SG Stocks That MUST Be In Your Portfolio Keppel Corporation (Keppel Corp) According to CIMB, Keppel Corp has the potential to declare higher dividends on the back of stronger gains from its asset recycling, along with stronger recovery in offshore and marine (O&M) margins. With the OPEC striking a new deal on production output, higher oil prices should support the demand for rigs. This will eventually lead to more de-risking of its jack-up inventory, resulting in improvement in operating leverage.

4 Cheapest Condominium Launches In Singapore For Second Half Of 2018
If you’re thinking of buying a private property for rental income or investment purposes in 2018, it is worth noting that the rental market is still not very strong. In the near-term, you should not expect super attractive yields from your properties. With rising interest rates, it might be prudent to also be conservative when counting on rental income to service any debt obligations. However, if you are in the market for a condominium to live in, then the property market is still a viable option today. Here are four condominiums due to launch in the second half of 2018 that have the lowest indicative prices. Whether these condos are worth their asking prices is something prospective homebuyers need to carefully evaluate for themselves. Read Also: En-Bloc Fever 2017: How Mu
