SGX Research: Singapore Office REITs Began Month on Firm Ground
In the first half of March, REITs with majority income from Singapore office properties averaged a 2.1% gain, compared to a marginal 0.2% decline for the STI. SGX also lists multiple REITs that invest in international office properties. Recent gains in Office REITs have been generated ahead of Wed Night which is expected to bring the first interest rate hike by the Fed Reserve in 2018. With rates increasing on stronger growth, positive impacts on office rental activity can balance impacts of higher borrowing costs. CCT was the strongest of the Office REITs in the month thus far with a 4.6% total return. On 23 Jan, CCT reported FY17 distributable income rose 7.4%. CCT’s price has firmed 7.1% from 23 Feb with portfolio drivers including office rental recoveries & proactive capital

5 Alpha Picks Following 4Q17 Results
The 4Q17 earnings season ended two weeks ago with largely uninspiring results.  According to CIMB, companies missing the mark outweighed those that beat expectations by 15 to seven. Sectors like shipyards, aviation and telecommunications showed disappointing results. CIMB: Earnings Starting To Bubble According to CIMB, corporates are still grappling with costs and kitchen-sinking. Noteworthy earnings setback came from all three telcos as the industry continued to be grappled by higher costs. Large caps in the capital goods sector like Keppel Corp, Sembcorp Marine and Sembcorp Industries also used 4Q17 to clean up its books with impairments. Notable Results From 4Q17 That being said, there were still some positive surprises coming from Singapore companies. DBS’s windfall dividend in its

Worried About Market Volatility? Here’s How You Should Position Your Portfolio
In close to three decades since the introduction of Volatility Index (VIX), the “fear index” has never been as low as 2017, having hit an all-time low of 9.14 in November 2017. As we entered 2018, VIX slowly crept up and shot to 37.2 at the start of February. While VIX is now lower at 19.6, it is still above levels seen in 2017. While the VIX has historically been an early warning signal for a market crash, UOBKH believes it is different this time around. UOBKH notes that the current volatility is not as severe as compared to 2015. The recent market pullback of around 11 percent from its peak, however, mirrors the same magnitude of the plunge in 2015. But since then, the market is slowly recovering back to its all-time high in January. UOBKH: Investors Should Look Beyond Short-Term Noi

Venture Corp (VMS SP) | Consensus likely to re-rate up soon on good results
My view: S'pore-IT-pick: Venture Corp (VMS SP) Px/Tgt SGD27.50/31.88 Theme: Consensus-likely-to-re-rate-up-soon 1. Venture's 2017 core net profit was S$387m (+72% yoy), coming in at 102% and 115% of our and consensus estimates respectively. Revenue growth continued to be driven by the TMO segment (+84% yoy) which we believe was due to Device I. The higher R&D revenue in 4Q17 lifted gross margin, which we expect it to sustain at 24-25% in 2018. A read through of Supplier X's production suggests that 1Q18 is expected to be similar to 4Q17. No change to our earnings estimates. 2. UOBKH Research maintain BUY and target price of S$31.88, pegged to 19x 2018F PE. Production of Device I is expected to continue at 2H17 levels into 2018, supporting earnings. With con

Two Electronic Stocks That Investors Should Buy On The Dip
CIMB is back with its Alpha Picks and Strategy, identifying stocks that investors “must-own” as these are great stocks with attractive valuations and strong fundamentals. Recent happenings in the stock market seem to best describe by the word “volatile”.

As result, Singapore investors were also spooked as our market corrected about 6.5 percent from the peak of 3,611.69 before it began recovering. However, analysts at CIMB opine that there are more earnings upgrades to be expected from various sectors and the recent sell-off provides investors a chance to accumulate stocks at lower prices.  A

Here’s How Much You Would Have Today If You Invested $1,000 Into These 10 Popular Singapore Stocks 10 Years Ago
Many say the Singapore stock market is slow, lacklustre and even “dead”. However, for those who continue to put faith in stock listed here, can still find good value. 10 years ago, the Singapore stock market was flourishing, and it was right before the global financial crisis, that wiped out nearly 55% of the value of Singapore’s 30 largest stocks listed on the Straits Times Index, hit. Today, the STI has clawed back nearly 45% of those losses. This means that we’ve not yet recovered to the highs of 2007’s stock market. Nevertheless, we look at how a $1,000 investment in 10 popular stocks on the Singapore Exchange (SGX) 10 years ago would look like today. We also assume reinvestment of any dividends at the start of the following year to achieve compounded returns. #1 CapitaLand M
