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

3 Things To Do If US-China Trade Talks Go Wrong
With the 90-day truce in the US-China trade war coming to a halfway mark, attention is now on the outcome of those talks. While the news so far appears to be indicating that the talks will end in a positive note, it is hardly a foregone conclusion. Things could still change in a swift if either party changes its mind. So, what happens if the US-China trade talks fall apart? Investors Takeaway: 3 Things To Do If US-China Trade Talks Go Wrong By DBS Stay Invested In REITs S-REITs managed to put in the second-best performance in 2H18 after healthcare. According to DBS, S-REITs should continue to garner investors’ interest as bond yields are still pressured by the Fed turning more dovish.

Is Sembcorp Industries Limited’s Share Price A Bargain Now?
Sembcorp Industries Limited (SGX: U96) is a Singapore-listed conglomerate with three business divisions – Utilities (Energy, Water, Waste Management), Marine (a 61% ownership of Sembcorp Marine Ltd (SGX: S51)) and Urban Development. Between 1 Jan to 31 Dec 2018, Sembcorp’s total return, which includes reinvested dividends, came in at a negative 15%, compared to a negative 6.5% for the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI). With the sharp pullback in Sembcorp’s shares, is Sembcorp Industries a bargain? For this we will be using four metrics, namely, the price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio, the price-to-book (P/B) ratio, the dividend yield and the net-debt-to-equity ratio. Sembcorp Industries has a trailing twelve months (TTM) earnings per share of S$0.12. With the industrial conglomerate’s cu

In the first two parts of this four part series, we highlighted two of four investment themes that DBS recommended for 2019 (Defensive plays with strong earnings visibility & yield plays with growth potential). With the market on the backfoot, DBS thinks that there is potential for value investors to seek value plays. In this article, we highlight another key investment theme that DBS recommends for investors in 2019: Bombed out value plays. Investors Takeaway: 4 Bombed Out Value Buys By DBS Genting Singapore Despite the turnaround in profitability after the challenging period in 2015-16, the market remains sceptical over the sustainability of Genting Singapore’s (Genting) earnings recovery.

Straits Times Index (STI) Stocks: How Much Would You Have Gained (Or Lost) If You Invested In 2018
The Straits Times Index (STI) is made up of the 30 strongest and most liquid stocks listed in Singapore. Comprising close to 80% of the entire market value in Singapore, the returns that the stocks on the STI provides is essentially the market returns or benchmark returns.

Here Are 2 Bargain Blue Chip Shares Trading Significantly Below Book Value
I like buying undervalued shares of companies. As such, a lot of my time is spent searching for such opportunities. One of my personal techniques to do so is to look for shares that are trading below book value – i.e., they have a price-to-book (PB) ratio of below 1. In this article, I want to discuss two such blue chip shares. (If you’re wondering what terms such as PB ratio, book value, and blue chips mean, fret not – I’ll be explaining them shortly!) For some investors, finding shares with low PB ratios is futile, since many of such companies are cheap for good reasons – their PB ratios may look cheap, but they are not undervalued! Still, a low PB ratio is a useful way to find ideas, especially if it’s blue chip companies that carry such valuatio

These 3 Blue-Chip Shares Are Near Their 52-Week Lows: Are They Cheap?
The Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) has been falling steeply of late, and this could have thrown up some bargains. In this article, let’s look at three companies that are part of the STI and are selling near their respective 52-week low prices. The companies are Keppel Corporation Limited (SGX: BN4), Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SGX: Z74) and Sembcorp Industries Limited (SGX: U96). All data in the table below are as of 19 December 2018. Keppel Corporation and Sembcorp Industries have not been doing well ever since the oil price took a massive hit in 2015. Keppel, through its Offshore & Marine (O&M) division, and Sembcorp, through its 61%-ownership in Sembcorp Marine Ltd (SGX: S51), are heavily involved in the offshore rig and marine sectors.

The Better Buy: Keppel Corporation Limited or Sembcorp Industries Limited?
Keppel Corporation Limited (SGX: BN4) and Sembcorp Industries Limited (SGX: U96) are two conglomerates that have similar businesses. In this article, I will compare the two companies to determine which might be a better buy. Introducing the Contenders Keppel Corporation is a conglomerate with four key business divisions, namely, Offshore & Marine (O&M), Property, Infrastructure and Investments.

Institutional Investors Sold These Blue-Chip Shares In November
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.

These 3 Blue-Chip Shares Are Trading Close To Their 52-Week Lows
I’m a value investor. So, I like to search for companies that are trading at good value. A list of stocks that are near their respective 52-week lows is a good place to start my search for a good reason. These are the stocks that are either neglected or beaten down by investors. And, some of these stocks can be bargains in relation to their actual economic worth because market participants can at times react too negatively to certain companies that have sound long-term prospects but have experienced some short-term stumbles. As such, I will screen for stocks that are trading near 52-week lows nearly once every week. There are many stocks that pop up on my screen each time I run it.  So what are the companies that have shown up on this week’s list? Here are three of them: Source: SGX.
