3 Facts To Know About The Telecommunications Sector
The telecommunications is an essential sector for almost every Singaporean given the prevalence of mobile phones. Not to mention our heavy reliance on the internet which means that we have to stay connected through our data plans or connecting to wifi. In this article, we will be highlighting three important takeaways by RHB Securities that investors should know about the telecommunications sector. Strong competition to continue The heightened competition in the sector has been on-going for some time ever since the introduction of the fourth telco with the entry of TPG Telecom and the introduction of two other mobile virtual network operators (MVNO) which will likely be hosted by StarHub. MVNOs are operators that provide wireless communication services using wireless network infrastruct

Singapore Telecommunications Limited’s Stock Price Is Down By 5.5% In The Last 12 Months: Is It Cheap Now?
Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SGX: Z74) is the largest operational telco in Singapore. Its two other competitors are, in order of size, StarHub Ltd (SGX: CC3) and M1 Ltd (SGX: B2F). Over the last 12 months, Singtel’s stock price has declined by 5.5% to its current level of S$3.61, and is currently just a hair’s breadth higher than a 52-week low of S$3.57. Singapore’s stock market barometer, the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI), is up by 18% over the same timeframe. This may raise an important question among investors: Is Singtel’s stock actually cheap now? Unfortunately, there is no easy answer. But, we can still get some insight by comparing Singtel’s current valuations with those of its peers. The three valuation metrics I will focus on are the price-to-book (PB) ratio

Remuneration: Get basics right and avoid pitfalls
First published in Business Times on January 23, 2018 By Mak Yuen Teen and Chew Yi Hong On Jan 11, we released our first report on remuneration practices for 609 companies with a primary listing on the Singapore Exchange (SGX). The report, titled The Singapore Report on Remuneration Practices: Avoiding the Apaycalypse, highlights good practices – and practices that fall below generally accepted norms. It identifies companies that got the basics right, especially in terms of compliance with the Singapore Code of Corporate Governance on remuneration committee composition and remuneration disclosures. In selecting the companies, the following criteria were used: Remuneration committee composition which complied with the Code and any other rules applicable to the company; Exact disclosu

Singtel: Becoming A Dumber Pipe?
I have been a long term shareholder as well as a long term mobile phone subscriber of Singtel. The experience had not been great, to say the least, especially in the past three years. Singtel's stock had done okay if we look back in time. It was $2.2 or so in 2007 and today it's $3.7. An investor who held throughout would had made 68% on capital gain and another 40% or so in dividends. But in the last three years, it did nothing. Meanwhile, DBS went from $15 to $25 and became the largest stock in Singapore (overtaking Singtel) for the first time ever!Today, we try to decipher what happened to the #1 stock in Singapore.Singtel's investment thesis had been pretty simple. This was a business connecting 600 million mobile subscribers over a huge part of the world. It generated tremendously str

As A Contrarian, You Will Always Walk Alone
A lot of investors have posted good results for last year. However, if you were like me and had been worrying that the stock market could crash in 2017, a year that ends with 7, you would have missed out on a stock market rally in which the STI rose by 18% in 2017. When everybody else is posting good results online, it does feel depressing occasionally.I was not totally out of the market last year. Having participated in the stock market for 32 years, I will never be totally out of the market, even though I respect the folklore that the market would experience a crash whenever the year ends with 7. I took a defensive stance, ensuring that I had around 45% to 50% cash to deploy in the event that a crash were to materialise. As I sold stocks that were rising, I continued to invest in stocks

I Repurchased M1 Again!
2 posts ago, I asked readers to choose a counter, that I bought recently, to review. Many commented on CWX Global Limited, which I believe I had already explained quite significantly in that particular post. Therefore, I was reluctant to write about it. Luckily, someone else commented on M1 Limited (aka M1) and so here we go...If you remembered, I wrote about selling all of M1 and keeping ComfortDelGro Corporation Limited (aka Comfort) in September 2017. As of today, I have sold all of Comfort and have repurchased M1. Within a 2 year period, I made some money on M1 but will have also made losses on Comfort.You must have thought why am I doing this – Selling Comfort when Uberflash has been launched, and when they have already established contact with Uber.The main reason was that I do not

Is Investing The Same As Gambling?
This article was written by Ryan Teo and first appeared on fundMyLife, the platform that connects financial planning questions to the right advisers. “Investing in the stock market is just like gambling.” Or so the saying goes. And people develop a fear of investing from thinking that way. It depends on our perception on how we think about it. The problem is that a lot of people do treat the stock market like a casino, hoping to win the big bucks quickly. Let Me Ask You A Question Let’s say a friend who approaches you. He says: “Eh bro! I’m opening a cafe that’s based on the latest dessert trend from Tokyo. It’s huge in Japan. Guarantee make a lot of money one la. If you interested, you can invest $10,000 in my business.” What will you do? Are you going to hand over the

Here Are 3 Blue-Chip Stocks Near their 52-Week Lows: Are They a Bargain?
Walter Schloss, dubbed a Superinvestor by Warren Buffett, was a deep value investor. He was very keen on stocks that were selling at 52-week low prices. In Singapore, even among the blue-chip companies of the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI), there are a few stocks that are at or near their respective 52-week low prices right now. Let’s look at three of them – Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SGX: Z74), Jardine Cycle & Carriage Ltd (SGX: C07), and Wilmar International Limited (SGX: F34) – starting with the stock that is closest to its 52-week low price.Source: Google Finance and SGX StockFacts Singtel announced earlier in the month that it had sold 150,000 shares in ACPL Marine Pte Ltd (AMPL) to ASEAN Cableship Pte Ltd for S$15 million.

Look Beyond Singapore If You Want To Make Money
I remember once sitting down to a plate of Char Kway Teow at a restaurant operated by Millennium & Copthorne Hotels. There’s nothing too remarkable about that, you might think…. …But the hotel was the Millennium Tara, which was located just a few steps away from Kensington High Street in the heart of central London. The rice noodles were as authentic as you would find at any Singapore hawker stall – lots of “wok hei”. That was not my only encounter with a Singapore-run business abroad. Chinese restaurant Min Jiang, which is owned by Singapore’s Goodwood Group of Hotels, offers fine dining in London with an unparalleled bird’s-eye view of Hyde Park. I also recall enjoying a sumptuous breakfast of kaya toast and two silky half-boiled eggs with a splash of dark soy sauce

SI Research: 3 Blue Chips With 10% Upside Potential Or More
2018 kicked off with a good start extending last year’s bullish sentiments. Within 3 trading sessions we are already seeing the Straits Times Index (STI) surge past last year’s high of 3,468.77 to 3,501.16 on 4 January, inching towards the historical peak of 3,539.95 in April 2015. Against such a backdrop, do blue-chip counters in the local bourse still have room for further advancement? By mentioning blue chips, we are actually referring to component stocks that form the STI which incidentally have a market capitalization of at least $10 billion. That said, we have identified 3 blue chips from UOB Kay Hian’s (UOBKH) alpha picks for 2018 with additional upside potentials of more than 10 percent despite their already significant rallies.

These 5 Blue Chips Lost To The Straits Times Index In 2017
The Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) started 2017 at 2,881 points and ended the year 18.1% higher at 3,403. Yet, this healthy return does not imply that all 30 companies within the Straits Times Index had similar returns. In fact, there were some big losers, some flat stocks, and some huge winners within the group of the 30 blue chip stocks. This article is the fourth in a series that will look at the outperformers and laggards among the Straits Times Index’s constituents. The first article discussed three blue chips that outperformed the index in 2017, the second article looked at two blue chips with returns that lagged the market significantly, and the third article covered three more blue chips that beat the index.

Riskiest REITs based on their beta
The Singapore stock exchange has many REITs to choose from and investors usually base their buying decision on dividend yields. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); But how many have stopped to think of the risk of a REIT? What is risk? By risk, I mean how much the price of a REIT fluctuates. I.e. its volatility In the finance world, the term beta is used to measure how volatile a stock is. In this regard, volatility is synonymous with risk. Higher volatility = higher risk. The market used in this context is the STI index. In other contexts, it can be used to mean the general market such as the S&P500 or Dow Jones. A beta of 1 indicates that a stock, or REIT’s price moves lockstep with the market. A beat of less than 1 means that the REIT is less volatile th
