Singapore Telecommunications Limited’s Stock Is Down 17% From Its 52-Week High: Is It A Good Business?
Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SGX: Z74) or Singtel, is one of the three main telco in Singapore. The other two are M1 Ltd (SGX: B2F) and StarHub Ltd (SGX: CC3). The group has three main business segments, namely Consumer, Enterprise and Digital Life. At the current price of S$3.17 (at time of writing), the company’s stock is trading at 17% lower compared to its 52-week high of S$3.80. This decline captured my attention and got me interested in finding out more about the company. In particular, I want to understand: Does Singtel have a high-quality business? For me, this question is important. If Singtel has a high-quality business, the lower stock price could be an investment opportunity. Unfortunately, there’s no easy answer to the question. But a simple metric, the return on

5 things to know before you invest in the Phillip SING Income ETF
A year ago, Phillip Capital Management, along with Lion Global Investors, launched the Lion-Phillip S-REIT ETF. The ETF aimed to give investors a way to invest in a diversified basket of Singapore REITs (S-REITs) which paid a steady stream of distributions. (At the moment, the average distribution yield for S-REITs is 6.8%.) The ETF was met with a largely positive response from the market – Lion Global Investors and Phillip Capital Management initially aimed to raise S$40-50 million but exceeded their target when the fund raised over S$100 million last October. Capitalizing on the Singapore market’s appetite for yield, Phillip Capital Management has now launched the Phillip SING Income ETF. The initial offer period for the ETF will close at 11:00 a.m. on 19 October 2018 before its list

2 Blue Chip Shares For You To Consider Investing In If The Market Crashes
Investors are getting nervous. After a long period of calm, the US stock market started falling last week. Right now, the S&P 500 – a leading US stock market benchmark – is down by 5.5% from its record-high close on 20 September. At home in Singapore, the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) is down by 11% year-to-date. Though a market pullback worries most investors, the truth is that market sell-offs are great times to buy shares of companies at bargain prices. With this in mind, let’s look at two blue chips that I think are good buys if the market crashes. The duo are known as blue chips because of their status as one of the 30 constituents of the Straits Times Index. Blue Chip No.1  My first company is one that needs no introduction as it is Singapore’s largest o

Temasek retail bond: 5 things to know before you invest in the T2023-S$ bond
Back in June, Temasek’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Azalea Group, offered the Astrea IV bond to retail investors in Singapore. The bond was the first ever private equity backed-bond to be listed here. This week, Temasek once again broke new ground with the T2023-S$ bond offer — it is the very first time that Temasek bonds are open to retail investors in Singapore, which was previously available only to institutions and accredited investors. For those who don’t already know, Temasek Holdings is a private investment company fully-owned by the Singapore government that manages a portfolio of assets worth S$308 billion (as at 31 March 2018). It manages one of the largest funds in the world — ninth largest according to this list — and many of the biggest companies listed in S

Alibaba’s Jack Ma to revive SingPost share price?
Nowadays, it is not surprising that many of the blue chips in Singapore Exchange suffer from poor stock performance because of the global headwinds and challenging operating environment. But this is certainly not the case for SingPost share price, which plunged after the announcement of 40% decline in net profit for Q1FY18/19. Upon the release of the financial result in August 2018, investors sent SingPost share price reeling from $1.38 to as low as $1.03. Till now, SingPost share price has not recovered its form and is on course to retreat below the $1.00 mark. Should investors run for their lives? Before writing this counter off, it should be noted that Alibaba’s Jack Ma is a major shareholder of SingPost, with stake amounting to 14.5%. Question now is: will Jack Ma buy over SingTel’

STI has dropped almost 17% since 2 May! Is a bear market coming? (14 Oct 18)
Dear all, U.S. equity markets have logged their worst weekly performance in the past six months. For our local market, STI has dropped 16.7% from an intra-day high of 3,642 on 2 May 2018 to an intra-day low of 3,035 on 11 Oct 2018. It closed at 3,069 on 12 Oct 2018. Is a bear market coming? There are mixed views. Bears are saying that we have not reached the bottom yet. Some perma-bears are even saying this may be the start of the bear market. Bulls are saying that this represents a window of opportunity to accumulate stocks on weakness and that the bull market is not over yet. My personal view is that this is unlikely to be the start of the bear market. Since last month, I have already informed clients to trim their portfolios. In fact, on 26 Sep, I have sent out another email to reiterat

3 Blue Chips That Remind You Of Warren Buffett’s Love For Hamburgers
The bear has bare its fangs on our local stock market. Following the plunge in US equities on Wednesday overnight, local benchmark Straits Times Index (STI) plunged as much as 3 percent to 3,035.2 on Thursday, 11 October 2018. The STI managed to regain some ground to close 2.7 percent in the red at 3,047. The plunge in stocks worldwide was attributed to spiking US bond yields. Investors seem to be pricing in the risks of an imminent recession if interest rates continue to rise and push up borrowing costs. For the time being, the STI is being supported technically by the critical 3,000-point psychological level, giving local investors some reprieve. However, investors are not in the clear yet. At the current level, the STI is 16.5 percent down from its peak of 3,641.65 which was seen in Apr

SingTel share price sitting on epic time bomb
What a year it has been for the Singapore telecom industry. The crazy competition has seen StarHub retrenching 300 staff while M1 is the subject of buyout offer by Keppel and SPH. Despite the extensive shake-up in the local telecom industry, leading player SingTel stands tall against the relentless waves of changes. SingTel share price also remains resilient in the face of the unprecedented disruptions that had impacted StarHub and M1. With 735 million mobile customers in 21 countries, SingTel’s investment moat is indeed unassailable. Investors would note that SingTel share price has been bearish in recent months. However, the recent M1 general offer had led to a mini recovery for SingTel share price because many observers deemed that the industry consolidation would benefit SingTel. But

Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SGX: Z74) or Singtel, is one of the three main telcos in Singapore. Investors might be interested in the company now since its trading just 5% away from its 52-week low price.

In this article, we will try to understand one aspect of the company – how does it make its cash.

These 3 Blue-Chip Shares Have Fallen Significantly Over The Past Year, But Could Beat The Market From Here
Warren Buffett once said that as an investor, it is important to be “fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.” The idea is simple. When everyone is buying shares in a company, it’s unlikely that the company’s shares will be a good bargain. On the other hand, when others are shying away from the shares of a company, we might be able to pick some up at a good price. How can we tell if investors are staying away from a company’s shares? By seeing if it has fallen hard in recent times. In this spirit, here are three blue-chip shares with prices that have declined significantly from their respective highs over the past year: Singapore Telecommunications Limited  (SGX: Z74), DBS Group Holdings Ltd  (SGX: D05), and Thai Beverage Company Limited  (

A US$180 billion Growth Trend is Happening At Suntec City Right Now. Investors Should Not Miss It.
Singapore’s first PVP eSports Championship, a multi-title regional gaming league, is happening right now at Suntec City. The event taps on a massive eSports trend happening around the world. However, the appeal of eSports wasn’t always clear. In fact, when Arthur Lang first heard about it, he was sceptical. He couldn’t help but wonder: why would anyone want to pay money to watch someone else play an online game?  It may be normal for the man in the street to be puzzled by the idea of eSports, but Lang is not a common man. Lang is the CEO of the International Business of Singapore Telecommunications (SGX: Z74), Asia’s leading communications group with a subscriber base reaching almost 700 million people. His words carry some weight.        Ultimately, Lang’s qu

StarHub retrenchment underscores dark chapter of telco industry
I can imagine SingTel CEO Chua Sock Koong rubbing her hands in glee as she read news of how arch rival StarHub struggles amid the unprecedent shake-up in the telco industry. Just months after StarHub failed to renegotiate contract with popular Discovery Channel, SingTel snagged the rights to broadcast the channels in October 2018. SingTel victory must be bitter to StarHub as the latter also lost the English Premier League broadcast to the leading telco more than ten years ago. Then, there is the StarHub retrenchment. In my previous article, “StarHub share price to plunge after being booted out of STI”,  I have highlighted how StarHub share price is expected to face destiny after being demoted from the prestigious Straits Times Index.

M1 Takeover Bid Is Sparking Interest In SG’s Telco Companies
The telco sector isn’t the sexiest recently. But in the past week, the spotlight has shone on the telco sector, thanks to Keppel Corp’s plans to consolidate in the mobile industry. Keppel Corp announced last week that it is launching a buyout offer together with Singapore Press Holdings to take over M1. Currently, Keppel Corp owns 19.3 percent of M1 while SPH owns 13.5 percent of M1. They are looking to acquire Axiata Group’s 28.7 percent stake in M1 to become an individual majority shareholder. According to analysts, this will allow the new major shareholder to dictate the business strategy. Furthermore, the deal will allow M1 to utilise Keppel’s datacentre assets to supplement its weak enterprise segment. M1 can also retail Keppel Electric’s energy to its home customers and bun

Complete Guide To Choosing The Best Open Electricity Market (OEM) Plan For Your Home
