The year started with index 3238 and ended a couple of days back with index 2843. This represents a drop of 12.2%. I stayed the course and continued to add more dividend stocks. At STI 2800 plus, local market is starting to appear not so cheap. But compared to other major indices it’s relatively cheaper. As I am already pretty heavy on local banks, I turned my attention to overseas market, mainly HK and My.I continued to add shares which I see potential for good dividend payouts and subscribe to scrip dividends where possible. The past year, the latter proved fruitful, as in the case of local banks, Far East consortium and sinoland. I took position in water oasis. I noted that it has postponed its board meeting and now the shares are suspended pending audits of its accounts. I

A Blue Wave lifts markets in a week of two halves
Explosive end to the week saw the STI gain 5.3%; The push came from the US, where Democrats won control of Senate; Market now hopes for more US stimulus, Wall St at all-time high; Bank stocks in play as US Treasury yield curve steepens; Share buybacks in 2020 rose 75% versus 2019 to $1.03b; A week of two halves as the STI nears 3,000 Football matches sometimes play out in two contrasting halves, the first sometimes dominated by one team and the second by the other. As far as stock markets were concerned, the same description applied for the first week of 2021. Certainly, that it was a week of two halves was very much the case for the Singapore market – the first half was a quiet and sedate few days during which nothing much happened, the second, an explosive surge brought on by unexpe

Why Do Many Singaporeans Perform Poorly Investing In The Stock Market?
As I reflect on the happenings of 2020, the one thing that troubles me most was the number of people asking me for financial advice because their investment portfolio had performed poorly.  I am especially perturbed as many of them are ordinary people with extraordinary (and avoidable) losses in the stock market. After listening to the many sob stories from fellow investors based in Singapore, I can list four reasons for their poor market performance: #1 Overconcentration in Singapore Economy/ Stocks Many Singaporean investors have the majority of their investments in stocks listed in Singapore.  According to Bloomberg, the Singapore stock market is officially the worst performing one in Asia. If you were to look at the chart above, in 2020, the Singapore stock market, represented by th

Why I Replace A Local Bank With A Telco?
So for the last 2 articles that I have written - The last article of 2020 and first article of 2021 - I have stated that I am reducing my OCBC position to redivert the money into Singtel and US Market.OCBC remains a smaller position in my portfolio and I may still sell everything within the near term.In both articles, I did not mention my reasons for selling/reducing OCBC. Nevertheless, I did reveal all the reasons in a recorded session in a FB Live with JR_Chai.(Click on the picture to watch the recorded session)Furthermore, I also had a separate discussion (which I did not mention before) on my Fundamental Scorecard Telegram Group where it was stated that (1) capex for Singtel will be huge with 5G and digital banking coming together and (2) this may affect future dividend. Neverthel

First Article of 2021 - The Replacement of OCBC Bank is Singtel
This is a continuation of the previous post.The replacement of OCBC is Singtel.The joke is on me. Many months ago, for those that asked me about Singtel, I will tell them I do not like it. The main issue is cash burn in the future and the “traditional” management. But recently a friend changes my thinking and it kept me thinking on all the future possibilities. Basically, in my opinion, the opportunities exceed its own weaknesses. Thus, let me get into the reasons.1. Digital BankingGrab-Singtel JV (GSJV) has been awarded for the full digital banking license. Singtel has a 40% stake in the S$1.5bn entity (around at least S$600million outlay from Singtel).Recently, I have a deep discussion on the Fundamental Scorecard Telegram Group on Digital Banking. Basically, I commented th

Journey To Retirement Part 2.5 -- First REIT
Long story short of what has happened on 28th Dec 2020, refer Journey to Retirement (CPFIS) Part 2.1 -- First REIT.   Divested all of the holding at S$0.39/unit after holding since 2007, 13-years period, a year short of SingTel duration of 14 years.  SingTel was my first stock in stock market and was a Day 1 investor.  For those who have yet to born or still not in stock market then, IPO at that time apart from the normal application, you can in addition bid for it.  The final bidding price if on high demand will be higher than the IPO price for sure.  I managed to get the bidding part and on top of the normal application.Selling off at S$0.39 and with a holding price of S$0.5973, that resulted in a capital loss of -34.91% on top of a dividend return of +

Starlink By Elon Musk For Satellite Internet Broadband Services Operational Soon- Possible Threat to Singtel, Starhub and Netlink Trust?
Elon Musk is planning to launch its SpaceX's Starlink services soon. Starlink is actually a satellite internet constellation being constructed by SpaceX providing satellite Internet access. The constellation will consist of thousands of mass-produced small satellites in low Earth orbit, working in combination with ground transceivers. An estimated investment of more than US$10 billion has been pumped into this decade old project from Elon Musk. This space internet broadband project actually went on track as per forecasted with various beta testing being done already. It is scheduled to launch soon in USA and Canada this year and to rapidly expand to attain global coverage of the entire world by 2021. I was rather surprised that Elon Musk managed to pull this off and they are in the midst o

December Portfolio Update
It's been a while since my last portfolio update in April 2020 (You may read it here: Portfolio Update: Staying the Course). At that point of time, my portfolio was down approximately 15% YTD, while it has since recovered to a YTD performance of -6%. While this is nothing spectacular, especially with US indices hitting all time highs, relative to the Straits Times Index which is down approximately 13% YTD, at least there's some outperformance. Accordingly, I intend to allocate a higher percentage of my portfolio to international stocks, especially US/HK tech stocks. I believe that we're in a time when one cannot exclude having tech exposure in our portfolios, given how tech companies have expanded to becoming an integral part of our lives. Indeed, this represents a shift from my value/divi

Digital Bank Licenses: What is it all about and how would it affect my life?
On 4 December 2020, the Monetary Authority of Singapore (“MAS”) announced that they will award digital full bank licenses to the Grab-Singtel consortium and Sea Group, while granting wholesale bank licenses to Ant Group and a consortium comprising of Greenland Financial Holdings, Linklogis Hong Kong & Beijing Co-operative Equity Investment Fund Management. The share prices of Sea Group and Singtel immediately rose on the back of these news, but nobody really knows what do these licenses mean. In order to help you make better long term decisions, we are going to cover the 3 questions below: What is the difference between a digital full bank license and a digital wholesale bank license? What does this mean for us? How can we benefit from these new licenses?   Digital full bank

Singapore digital bank licences: What does this mean for DBS, OCBC, and UOB?
MAS recently announced the successful applicants for four new Singapore digital bank licences. Of the four new licences, two are digital full banks and another two are digital wholesale banks. This announcement follows a wave of digital banks that have already emerged across the world, including in the United States, United Kingdom and closer to home, Hong Kong and South Korea. In this article, we will explore the identities of these four new entrants, understand whether technology companies can indeed run banks, note the lessons from existing digital banks around the world, and finally assess the impact on the three local banks. Who are the four new licence holders? A similar thread binds the choice of the four successful applicants: they are established technology companies

4 Stocks That Were Impacted By The Singapore Digital Bank License [11 Dec 2020] Singtel (SGX:Z74); iFAST (SGX:AIY); Sea Limited (NYES:SE); Razer (HKG:1337)
On 4 December 2020, the Monetary Authority of Singapore announced four successful digital bank applicants.

Two other companies won the Digital Wholesale Bank license – a consortium comprising Greenland Financial Holdings, Linklogis Hong Kong, and Beijing Co-operative Equity Investment Fund Management and the Ant Group.

Last Few Trains for COVID-19 Stock Crisis Recovery Rally
Global stock markets see strong light at the end of tunnel recently with confirmation of Biden as new US president and news COVID-19 vaccine over 90% effectiveness. During early phase of pandemic, Dr Tee students learned to apply defensive dividend stock strategies to consider Asian giant stocks at low optimism (average down strategy), balancing with growth investing / momentum trading (average up strategy) in bullish US giant stocks. The stock market this time is different from last 8 months of V-shape recovery limited to a few sectors (eg. Technology / Software, Healthcare / Glove, etc). There are sectors rotation, focusing more on cyclical stocks (eg. banks and oil & gas) and COVID-19 affected stocks are recovering quickly, resulting in global surge in share prices, over 10-40%

Singtel share price sinks or swims with digital banks?
SIGN UP FOR $10 TO UNLOCK ALL ARTICLES! The headlines screamed “Singtel share price soared with digital bank win”. Yet on 7 December (the following Monday after which Grab-Singtel consortium won a full digital banking license from MAS), short-selling volume rose to a stunning high of 21 million shares. This is almost five times the average short-selling volume for this counter. What’s going on? As one of the leading lights of SGX mainboard, Singtel share is highly popular with investors. So the recent digital bank license win must have brought some relief to many of these long-suffering investors. For the past one year, Singtel share price had been in terrible form, plunging from $3.40 at the start of the year to a low of $2.00 on 2 November. Not surprising, the key culprits for the
