Be Careful not to be Addicted to Large Mobile Data Usage from Recent Promotions
If you are re-contracting your phone plans in recent months, you would have observed that your data bundle have gotten real attractive.  This is probably the result of intense competition due to entry of a 4th telecom operator TPG. Before, they start offering their paid package, and as they are testing out the quality of their network, the incumbents are starting an intense price war.  Not just that, the mobile virtual network operators (MVNO) such as Circles Life, Zero, MyRepublic and Zero1 are also offering some really competitive packages.  As a consumer, this is a good thing because these corporate tyrants are finally kowtowing to you at the expense of their margins.  What I do find refreshing is that the MVNO operators are catering to selected usage segments that t

Many of the blue-chip companies of the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) provide attractive dividend yields. Let’s dive into the top five blue chips with the highest yields. Enter the blue-chip dividend warriors Source: SGX report (data as of 17 April 2019) Hutchison Port Hldg Trust (SGX: NS8U) is the top dividend yielder among the Straits Times Index components with a distribution yield of 10.4%.

Can smell be captured like a photograph?
We can take pictures to freeze a memory at a single instant in time. We use a camera for that purpose. But memories aren't just made up of lights and colours, they consist of smell and tactile sensation too. How come there isn't a device to capture the smell at any particular instance? Or the warmth of the sunlight hitting your face? Or the gentle caressing of the breeze that tussles your hair?I guess that's why looking at pictures feels like the copy of a copy to me. It's like eating aspartame - your tastebud feels the sweetness but it is ultimately empty in calories.There are a few things in the future that I'm looking out for:1) A transparent metallic materialI'm in the market looking for a water bottle, but whenever my wife asks me what sort of water bottle I'm looking out for, I'

Cheapest Overseas Data For Singaporeans: Singtel ReadyRoam vs M1 Data Passport vs StarHub DataTravel vs Changi Recommends
Overseas data used to be an expensive luxury that most of us think wistfully about as we bounce from one public wifi hotspot to another, struggling to stay connected for long enough to respond to the flurry of WhatsApp messages that flood our phones.

S&P500 vs Straits Times Index: Which Is “Better” For Beginner Singapore Investors?
One of the common recommendations for new investors is to invest in a fund that tracks the Straits Times Index (STI), and understandably so. The STI is widely regarded as a barometer of the Singapore economy, and it continues to show growth potential and resilience, while delivering enviable returns. Those who wish to gain exposure to the STI can do so through two Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs): SPDR Straits Times Index ETF (SGX: ES3) and Nikko AM Singapore STI ETF (SGX: G3B). However, there are also another group of investors who rather recommend the S&P500 as a first investment for newbie investors, citing its higher growth prospects and more diversified companies. We’ll compare these two indices in various areas that would be important for the new investor seeking to put togeth

How You Can Reduce Risk In Your Investment Portfolio Leading Up To Your Retirement
Today, the life expectancy of Singaporeans is 83.1 years, one of the highest in the world. As we live longer and healthier lives, many of us may have close to 20 years in retirement, from mid-60s to our mid-80s. Working Only 40 Years To Fund 60 Years Of Our Lives Many of us may find ourselves having to rely on 40 years of employment income, to fund nearly 60 years of our lives. All the while, we also have to continue to pay for our daily living expenses, buy a home, start a family, put our children through university and “live life” by indulging in entertainment through family holidays, going out for meals or buying stuff that we don’t absolutely need. After paying for these expenses, we may not have a lot left to put towards our retirement nest egg. The government tries to solve par

[2019 Edition] Best Unlimited Data Mobile Plans In Singapore (Plus: Which Plan Gives The Most 4G Data Per Dollar?)
We’re all spoilt for choice when it comes to content we can consume on our mobile phones. There is a wealth of news, longform articles, streaming music, online videos, virtual courses, apps and games available at the swipe of your finger, as well as communicating with others via video calls, voice calls over data, and multimedia chats. All these great use cases all require data, and not everyone has the luxury of waiting until they are at home or in the office to tap on a fast and reliable Wifi connection. To satisfy Singaporeans’ need for data, the various telecommunication companies (telcos) in Singapore have begun to offer increasingly cheaper data plans, culminating in unlimited data plans. These plans promise to put an end to situations when we have to watch our data usage closely

Regional Stocks Snap Losing Streak
Despite persistent unfavorable news from around the world, major equities benchmarks ended their downward slides and moved slightly higher. Nonfarm payrolls report from the US revealed that only 20,000 jobs were added in February 2019, signaling the slowest pace for job growth in the last 18 months. Dow Jones Industrial Average slipped 0.8 percent ending at 25,709.94 over the last two weeks. In China, the nation concluded its annual “Two Sessions” last week with the Chinese government setting its economic growth target this year lower to between 6 percent and 6.5 percent. Nevertheless, the government planned to launch new tax cuts and spending totaling 2 trillion yuan to support businesses and stimulate the economy. Last fortnight, Shanghai Composite Index inched up 0.9 percent to 3,02

Singtel share price in turmoil
In 2013, Singtel was trumped by Telenor and Ooredoo in its telco licensing bid in Myanmar, one of the world’s last untapped mobile market. The doomed attempt illustrated the perennial challenge that Singtel faces in its overseas expansion against the backdrop of growing competition in the Southeast Asia region. Nevertheless, not many would agree with the management expansion plan as Singtel share price stuttered following Moody’s revision of Singtel outlook to “negative”. Although Moody’s lowered Singtel’s outlook, it affirmed Singtel senior unsecured ratings of A1. Moody’s has also affirmed the (P)A1 rating on the Euro Medium Term Notes programme as well as the A1 rating on all notes issued by Singtel Group Treasury. Despite so, Singtel share price wobbled slightly, drop

Goodbye 2018! Hello 2019!
Yesterday was the first trading day of calendar 2019 and we witnessed how the markets "lao sai" (had a diarrhoea) all the way on its first trading day (slightly better today though). It is believed that the first trading day of the year determines the direction for the year. So if that's the case, we can only go south in 2019...Of course, all these old traders' tales aren't necessarily all true as with most things that concern the markets. The markets are forever unpredictable and no rules of thumb or any other finger ever works. It's different every time although sometimes we can see how it rhymes. Let's take a look at what transpired in 2018 and hopefully we can learn some lessons for 2019.1.

Is Tenant Concentration A Risk To Your Reits Portfolio?
Following my last article which I wrote on Ireit Global, there’s been a good amount of discussion from readers regarding the concern on tenant concentration that surrounds Ireit’s leasing activity over the past couple of years. I am here to provide my own thoughts based on my working knowledge and a good balance discussion of both the advantages and disadvantages which I see and will use several case studies on it.The tenant concentration concern has been brought up several times during the AGM and the management has also taken steps to abate the concern when they bought the Berlin property in order to “diversify” their tenets of tenants spread across their 5 portfolios. But there's more to that reason alone.Here are my further thoughts:1.)

Singtel share price in for terrifying ride
What a perfect storm for Singtel share price. Singtel share price is set to face reality once more as the telco announced a set of disastrous Q3FY2019 financial results which saw most business units reporting declining profits. Net profit declined 14% to $823 million due to increased competition in India. In my last article on Singtel share price, I predicted that this counter would enter 2019 in bad shape. Indeed, Singtel share price plunged to $2.86 on 3 January 2019 and only recently recovered to the $3.00 level. However, the recent financial results would likely roil Singtel share price again. It appears to me that Singtel share price is set for a roller coaster ride as the Q3FY2019 results fell short of many analyst estimates. Most business units reported declining profits on year-on-

A Good Start After Lunar New Year Break
US stocks moved higher on persisting optimism around the trade talk, after President Trump said that he would allow for flexibility to delay the trade-deal deadline if both sides are making sufficient progress. Furthermore, Trump indicated that he would still like to meet with Chinese leader Xi Jinping soon in an effort to put an end to the trade war. Meanwhile, Trump reassured market participants that a second government shutdown was unlikely even though he was unhappy with the tentative agreement. Over the last three weeks, Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 3.5 percent closing at 25,439.39. Correspondingly, China equities surged on hopes that the trade talk can achieve breakthrough, after the market re-opened from a one-week long Lunar New Year holiday. Overall Shanghai Composite Index

How to avoid losing money in stocks and investments
I writing a topical email every week to my mailing list. Here’s our last email to subscribers which I thought I share. You can sign up on our mailing list to get the latest updates when it goes out every week. Investors often focus on investing returns which is easy enough to understand. At the same time, experience has taught me that the biggest impediment to long term returns are catastrophic losses and improper position sizing. Examples in the last few years are common enough – from Hyflux perpetuals to Oil & Gas bonds. These problems become fatal when concentrated positions are taken inadvertently. It is important to start off by differentiating between scams and investments that simply did not turn out well. There is always an inherent risk in investing in businesses as not a

What Happens To Your CPF Savings When You Pass On?
You (or your parents) may have received WhatsApp messages about what would happen to your CPF monies (including your MediSave) when you pass on. Depending on which version of these messages you receive, some of these (fake) claims include your CPF monies going to the MediSave accounts of your Next-Of-Kin (NOK), or that your unused MediSave savings goes to the government. Source: Various Sources Online The first thing to take note is that the message above, and other variations of it, are fake and baseless. As clarified by, the default nomination that your NOK/nominees will receive will be in cash.
