What I think of Vicom Share Price Now. (Updated on 10 Feb 20)
That day, I was conducting my flagship The Systematic Trader Course when one of the new graduates asked me about my view on Vicom share price. He bought it around $4.80 in 2017 but sold it around $ 5.80 about 2 years later. The price continued to rally but he didn’t buy it back. He was asking me when is it a good time to buy? So let us take a look at Vicom Ltd and its business. Vicom Ltd’s Background VICOM Ltd is Singapore’s leading provider in inspection and technical testing services. A pioneer in vehicle inspection services, they were incorporated in 1981 and publicly listed on Singapore’s stock exchange in 1995. Anyone who owns a car in Singapore would probably know about VICOM’s business and the dreaded time we spend at their inspection services. Vicom Lt

4 Ways to Find Winning Long-Term Investments
Investors are constantly searching for great investments that can help compound their money over years in order to build up a comfortable retirement nest egg for themselves. The problem lies in identifying companies that consistently have an edge and are able to grow their revenue, profit, and cash flow over the long term. Many companies may outwardly display such characteristics, but the investor has to be mindful of value traps — investments that seem good on the surface but may turn out to be stinkers in the future. It’s important to monitor investments to ensure the original investment thesis continues to be on track and the risks are contained or mitigated. I rely on four methods to find great long-term winners. I believe these four aspects should stand investors in good

4 Things to Like About Companies That Generate Strong Free Cash Flow
There are many financial metrics that matter when investors assess companies for potential investment. Some of these include revenue and profit growth, margins, free cash flow, and dividend yield. I can safely say one of the more important metrics is free cash flow (FCF), as cold, hard cash is the lifeblood of a business. Having more cash is almost always a good thing as it allows companies to have more flexibility in how they operate, and it can also serve as a buffer when tough times arrive. The emphasis on consistent FCF allows investors to sleep well at night and offers companies many options for how to deploy that cash to generate better returns for their investors. Here are four things to like about companies that generate strong FCF. 1. Increasing dividends Companies with a strong

VICOM Limited: Key Risks That Will Make Me Sell
VICOM Limited (SGX: V01) is a leading provider of inspection and technical testing services. The group provides a comprehensive range of inspection and testing services in fields such as mechanical, biochemical, and civil engineering. VICOM is also the market leader in vehicle testing and inspection services with a 74.5% market share. I’ve been a shareholder of VICOM since 2011 and have enjoyed many years of dividends along with decent growth in the underlying business. As with any investment, I am constantly aware of the risks to the business and monitor it closely to see if any of them may invalidate my investment thesis. With many changes in the industry in which VICOM operates, along with heightened macroeconomic uncertainties, investors should certainly be on edge and alert. He

4 Companies That Have a High Probability of Raising Their Dividends
Investors always want more dividends. This is why dividend-paying companies are so popular — they represent a cash return on our investment from profits generated by the business. The hunt is always on for companies that not only pay regular and consistent dividends, but also companies that raise them over the years. There are many reasons companies raise their dividends, but the most important one, in my view, is that the business is improving and generating more profit and free cash flow. This is the main reason great companies pay increasing dividends over time and can act as superb compounders of investors’ wealth. Another reason could be because the business generates excess cash flow that it does not require to maintain its business, and can thus pay out the rest as divi

Want a Good Night’s Sleep? Buy These 3 Companies
Investors have been known to try all sorts of methods to obtain decent returns from the stock market, and some even use some risky and arcane methods that may land them good profits, but may take a huge psychological toll on the mind, too. My belief is that investments should generate steady and consistent returns while also providing investors with peace of mind. Investors should look for companies with stable operating characteristics, long-term demand, and a conservative capital structure. Strong balance sheets and consistent demand for their products and services will allow these companies to weather an economic downturn. Here are three such companies that could provide investors with peace of mind along with a good night’s sleep. 1. VICOM Limited VICOM Limited (SGX: V01) is a l

3 Secrets to Constructing a Strong Investment Portfolio
Constructing a strong and effective portfolio is never an easy task, and the investor is responsible for continually reviewing his positions and tweaking them to optimise his capital allocation. Aside from trying to maximise gains from the growth of the companies within the portfolio, the investor also has to be aware of risks and be able to position the portfolio to mitigate them. It can feel like an attempt to juggle ten balls with just two hands! In my years of investing, I have learnt a lot about how to manage my portfolio such that I capitalise on the gains, earn a steady income, and yet, ensure the risks are adequately mitigated. This knowledge was gleaned through an iterative process of learning from mistakes, due diligence on companies, and tweaking individual positions. Here are

4 Recession-Proof Stocks to Buy if You’re Worried About the Economy
With recent news articles on tumbling export numbers and downward revisions of Singapore’s GDP growth rate, investors cannot be blamed for feeling vexed and worried about their investments. It has been 10 full years since the Global Financial Crisis, and though recessions may feel like a thing of the past, history has shown that they do crop up time and again, though their exact timing is uncertain. Investors may rightfully be wondering if they are able to get through a potential recession unscathed, as such economic downturns reduce consumer demand, crimp people’s propensity for spending and make companies hesitate to commit capital for large projects or acquisitions. However, there are tried and tested ways of sailing through a downturn, and this is done by owning companies

2 Singapore Stocks You Can Buy And Hold Forever
In a changing world, it’s hard to find stocks that will last the test of time. Technology is advancing at a rapid pace. Companies that are unable to embrace change and grow with the times may find themselves becoming obsolete. As such, it is getting increasingly difficult to find stable stocks that we can count on for the long-term. However, I believe I have found two companies that fit the bill. These two companies have: (1) a long track record of stable earnings and cash flow; (2) businesses that are likely going to be required years from now; and (3) been willing to return excess returns to shareholders.  Dibs on DBS Singapore’s largest bank, DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05) is one of my top picks to buy and hold for the long-term.
