SI Research: A Time To Be Cautious
Following the United States extending its deadline to raise tariffs on Chinese products and increased optimism that the two biggest economies are well on track to reach an agreement, outlook in the markets has clearly turned for the better. Because of this, China’s Shanghai Composite Index jumped 5.6 percent within a single trading day on 25 February 2019. Along with the rise of the Chinese markets, the local bourse also saw its benchmark Straits Times Index registering a year-to-date return of 3.9 percent. In the last two months, we noticed three stocks which had good run-ups achieving double-digit growth in their share prices. As investment guru Warren Buffett had pointed out, “be fearful when others are greedy”. While we cannot say for sure if these three stocks may continue to ru

The Week Ahead: Three Central Banks In The Spotlight
The Singapore earnings season is over for another quarter. Some of the outstanding performers included Thai Beverage Company (SGX: Y92), Venture Corp (SGX: V03) and Yangzijiang Shipbuilding (SGX: BS3). But now the attention turns to political and economic matters. A speech from the Fed chair, Jerome Powell, is expected to draw some attention. In his semi-annual Monetary Policy Report to Congress, he left many questions unanswered, especially his comment that financial markets are now more volatile and that financial conditions are now less supportive of growth. The contraction in some sectors of the Chinese economy is likely to be closely watched. News of the third straight month of shrinkage in Chinese manufacturing could make it even more important that the Caixin Services PMI indicat

3 Ways to Assess If a Company Can Pay Dividends Consistently
For income investors who look forward to a steady and predictable stream of dividend income from their investments, knowing if a company can continue to pay dividends for the foreseeable future is very important. Many retirees who have withdrawn their CPF may put a chunk of it into dividend-paying companies in order to enjoy a steady stream of passive income as they live out their golden years. Investors should therefore carefully assess if a company is able to keep up its dividend payments, and below are three methods they can use to do so. Free cash flow One reliable indicator investors should look for is the presence of free cash flow. Recall that free cash flow is derived from the operating cash inflow of a company minus its capital expenditures. A company that’s able to consiste

Riverstone Holdings Limited’s 2018 Full-Year Result: Revenue Up By Around 13%
On Monday, Riverstone Holdings Limited (SGX: AP4) announced its 2018 full-year result. Riverstone is a Malaysia-based company operating in two key areas of the rubber-gloves industry: cleanroom gloves and medical gloves. Today, we’re looking at 10 things investors should know from the company’s latest earnings update. Revenue for the reporting year improved 12.7% year on year to RM 921.0 million. Yet, gross profit for the year was down 3.9% year on year to RM 190.0 million. The decline in gross margin was driven by lower average selling prices in healthcare gloves as well as a change in sales mix. Gross profit margin for the year was 20.6%, down from 24.2% in the same period last year. Net profit for the reporting year grew marginally by 1.6% year on year to RM 129.7 million.

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

The latest buyback is down from December 2018’s figure of S$78 million and January 2018’s amount of S$54 million.

4 Stocks This Week (STI Leaders) [25 January 2019] – Thai Beverage; Genting Singapore; City Developments; Venture
2019 has only just arrived and the stock market is already looking upbeat compared to 2018. Having opened the year at 3,051 points, the Straits Times Index (STI) closed at 3,202 points on 25 January 2019, an increase of about 5% since the start of the year. Since an index is made up of different stocks, it makes sense that there are some stocks in the STI which have performed exceptionally well since the start of the year, contributing to the overall performance of the index. As pointed out by SGX Market Strategist Geoff Howie, six of the seven poorest performing STI stocks in 2018 were among the STI’s 10 strongest stocks in 2019 thus far. This suggests that mean reversion could be at play for some of these popular blue-chip counters. Mean reversion is a financial theory suggesting that

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

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.
