2019 Investment Strategy: 2 Trade Diversion Plays To Shield From Impact Of Trade War
In this article, we highlight two trade diversion plays that DBS recommends investors in 2019. Looming Danger Of US-China Trade War The ongoing trade disputes between the US and China will affect export dependent economies such as Singapore. Singapore’s manufacturing base is largely focused on high value-added intermediate products, and a large proportion is shipped to China for subsequent processing. However, as the trade war is largely bilateral in nature, there could be some degree of trade diversion, which could benefit Southeast Asia’s economies. Singapore is in a unique position given its regional hub status, a comprehensive Free Trade Agreement network and higher level of innovation and business sophistication. Being a regional shipping and financial hub, Singapore could also se

3 Singapore Blue Chips That Have More Than Doubled Their Profits In The Last Decade
Long term investors seek companies that can sustain, or better still, grow their profitability for the foreseeable future. As a matter of fact, no one can accurately predict the future, thus, the ability of a company to consistently be profitable over the long term. Thus, average investors might want to limit their investments to those companies that have a more predictable business, or in other words, blue chips. Now, the conventional wisdom is that blue chip companies are boring investments since they don’t usually grow much given their size. This is true, to a certain extent. Yet, there are some blue chip companies that continued to grow their profitability over time, despite their size. Here, we will look at three blue chip companies that more than doubled their profits in the last d

Singapore’s Top 5 Blue-Chip Shares with the Highest Dividend Yields
The blue-chip shares of the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) all pay a dividend, with an average dividend yield of 3.6%. However, some of the index stocks have way higher dividend yields. Here, let’s look at the top five blue-chip shares that have the best dividend yields (data as of 17 January 2019). Blue-chip #1 Coming in first is Hutchison Port Holdings Trust (SGX: NS8U) with a distribution yield of 9.6%. In its most recent earnings update, the trust posted a net profit of HK$239.5 million, down 11.4% as compared to a year back. The high yield should not fool investors because of late, the trust’s distributions have been falling. For the last twelve months, total distribution has dropped to 19.62 Hong Kong cents from 26.10 cents in the prior period. Hutchison Port Holdings Trust

These 3 Companies Have Bought Back Their Shares This Week
Warren Buffett is a huge advocate of businesses buying back their shares. He believes that share buybacks can reveal a thing or two about the company’s management. He once said: “What you’d like to do as an investor is hook them up to a machine and run a polygraph to see whether it’s true. Short of a polygraph the best sign of a shareholder-oriented management — assuming its stock is undervalued — is repurchases. A polygraph proxy, that’s what it is.” On that note, let’s check out three companies picked at random that have repurchased their shares thus far during the week, as of market open today.

These 5 Blue-Chip Shares Grew Their Dividends By At Least 20% In The Last 5 Years
Income investors would ideally like to invest in companies that have sustainable dividends. Unfortunately, no one can accurately predict the future, which makes estimating the future dividends of a company potentially tricky. One way to help clear up some of the fog would be to look at a company’s history of paying dividends. Over the past five years, the global economy has been through some challenging events like the oil price crisis, Brexit, and the recent one being the US-China trade war. It would thus suggest that a company that can grow its dividends during this period has a strong business, and that could be a great starting point for further research.

4 Stocks This Week (Turnover) [21 December 2018] – Venture Corp; Dairy Farm; Genting Singapore; UOB
In 2018, stocks that are listed on Singapore’s Straits Times Index (STI) has seen an increase in volatility compared to 2017. This heightened volatility has also translated into a higher trading turnover for more than half of the STI stocks. Read Also: Complete Guide To Investing In The STI ETF Trading turnover is simply calculated as the price of a stock multiplied by its trading volume. When a stock’s trading turnover surges, it usually means there is more interest in the company. This can be either a good or bad thing as investors find reasons to buy up the stock or sell down the stock.

How To Outrun A Bear
It was not long after Diwali was over when Singapore started getting ready for the next major festive event – Christmas. I sometimes wonder why we can’t celebrate Diwali just that little bit longer. Diwali, or the Festival of Light, for me is a reminder of the victory of light over darkness. It’s about the triumph of knowledge over ignorance. It is also about appreciating and understanding what is going on around us. What’s volatility? It was around the time of Diwali when I was asked by the morning crew on MoneyFM why Genting Singapore (SGX: G13), City Developments (SGX: C09) and Venture Corp (SGX: V03) were the three worst performers in the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) in October.

These Companies Could Benefit From The China-US Trade Truce
Is the worst of the trade conflict finally behind us? On Monday, stock markets in Asia reacted positively to the announcement that the United States and China have agreed not to impose further tariffs on each other for 90 days. China is hoping that the US will remove tariffs imposed in July, while the White House said that talks will take place to resolve specific US complaints such as “forced technology transfer” within the next 90 days. If the trade conflict does resolve, it will certainly be good news for investors around the world. Lower trade barriers mean more efficient use of resources and larger markets for companies around the world in a time where trade has become a major part of the world economy.
