Should You Always Upgrade Your Mobile Plan If You Consistently Exceed Your Monthly Data Cap?
A survey of Singaporeans’ phone usage habits showed that 50% of us exceed our monthly mobile data allotments at least once in the past 6 months, and end up paying hefty data charges. While data add-ons and SIM-only plans are ways to increase the amount of data we have, for those who are on contract plans and like to benefit from phone subsidies every 21 months, it is worth exploring whether it is worth upgrading to a higher tier when it is time to renew our contract, which would give us a higher data limit. According to market research company GfK, Singaporeans replace their mobile phones every 12 to 16 months on average, so there clearly are a large contingent of Singaporeans who love the latest and greatest that phone manufacturers offer to the market.

Singapore Telecommunications Limited’s Latest Full Year Earnings Update: What Happened With Its Consumer Business?
Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SGX: Z74) is Singapore’s largest operational telco, and it currently has three business segments: Group Consumer, Group Enterprise, and Group Digital Life. In mid-May, Singtel announced its full year earnings update for its financial year ended 31 March 2018 (FY2018). Since Singtel has three different business segments, I thought it would be useful to have a look at the performance of the individual segments. Here are three important things investors may want to know about the Group Consumer segment’s latest performance [Editor’s note: Articles discussing the Group Enterprise and Group Digital Life businesses has been published.

If You Are Into Dividend Investing, Now Could Be Your Chance To Get Your Higher Hurdle Rate
5% Dividend Yield.That was the hurdle rate I was aiming for in a long time for my portfolio since I started investing.We have been living in a ferociously low interest rate environment almost for the whole decade that we struggle to find a good company that can yield a decent 5% yield for the longest time.And so I worked on my early retirement based upon the 5% yield hurdle rate and work backwards to find out how much capital I needed to generate that.That magic number was originally at $1m, but it was always a play between moving targets since there are so many variables within.We have seen plenty of fiscal policy tightening in the last 1 year where interest rate starts to spike and things start to move into the unchartered territory, at least within the past decade.The new generation, in

2 Risks That Investors Should Know Before Investing In Singapore Telecommunications Limited
Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SGX: Z74) is one of the most recognisable companies in Singapore, given that it is the largest telco in our local market. In an article I wrote and published two weeks ago, I shared three reasons why investors may want to consider investing in Singtel. The reasons are its geographically-diversified income stream, track record of paying a stable dividend, and attractive valuation. But, no company is without risk, and Singtel is no exception. In this article, I want to share two risks that I think all investors should know before investing in Singtel. Weakening performance in Singapore The competitive environment in Singapore’s telco market has led to subpar results from the company’s Singapore business.

Institutional Investors Have Been Selling These 3 Stocks
There are many ways to find investment ideas. Some useful methods are to screen for stocks or to look at a list of stocks near their 52-week lows to sieve out potential bargains. Studying what institutional investors have been buying or selling is another avenue. Institutional investors are typically large investment organisations, such as hedge funds, mutual funds, unit trust companies, sovereign wealth funds, insurance companies and so on. These investors tend to possess vastly greater resources than individual investors like you and me when researching stocks. Hence, it may be useful to keep a close eye on what they are doing, as a way to generate ideas. In this article, I will look at three Singapore stocks that were in the last of the top 10 stocks that saw the highest net sales in do

Complete Guide To Investing In The STI ETF

These 3 Stocks Are Trading Close To Their 52-Week Lows
I’m a value investor. So, I like to search for companies that are trading at good value. A list of stocks that are near their respective 52-week lows is a good place to start my search for a good reason. These are the stocks that are either neglected or beaten down by investors. And, some of these stocks can be bargains in relation to their actual economic worth because market participants can at times react too negatively to certain companies that have sound long-term prospects but have experienced some short-term stumbles. As such, I will screen for stocks that are trading near 52-week lows nearly once every week. There are many stocks that pop up on my screen each time I run it. In here, let’s look at three such stocks: Raffles Medical Group Ltd (SGX: BSL), Thai Beverage Public Co

3 Reasons Why Investors May Want To Consider Investing In Singapore Telecommunications Limited Now
Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SGX: Z74) is one of the most recognisable companies in Singapore, given that it’s the largest telco in our local market. Over the past two years or so, the incumbents in Singapore’s telco market – besides Singtel, there are two others in StarHub Ltd (SGX: CC3) and M1 Ltd (SGX: B2F) – have seen their businesses come under pressure due to competition from communication apps and streaming services. And that’s before they have to contend with the entrance of a fourth telco. In December 2016, the Australia-based TPG Telecom won the bid for Singapore’s fourth telco license. TPG Telecom is expected to launch its mobile service in Singapore in the second half of this year. As a result, the stock prices of the incumbents have weakened over the

These 2 Companies Announced Mixed Results Recently
We’re at the tail-end of the earnings season. As is common with every earnings season, there will be some companies posting growth, some posting mixed numbers, and some experiencing declines. Let’s take a look at two companies that delivered mixed results recently: 1. First up, I have Riverstone Holdings Limited (SGX: AP4), which released its 2018 first quarter earnings update in mid-May. As a quick introduction, Riverstone is a Malaysia-based company that produces rubber gloves that are used in the clean room as well as healthcare industries. During the reporting quarter, Riverstone experienced a 2.0% year-on-year increase in revenue to RM 209.8 million. But, its net profit declined by 7.6% to RM 31.1 million; similarly, its earnings per share fell by 7.7% to 4.19 sen. A strengtheni

Why Has Singapore Telecommunications Limited’s Stock Price Fallen By 6% Over The Past Month?
Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SGX: Z74) is an easily recognisable company in Singapore given that it’s our island nation’s largest operational telco. Over the last month, Singtel’s stock price has fallen by 6% to S$3.29, as at the time of writing. What may have caused this? Reasons for a decline There can be many reasons behind a stock’s price decline. But, the reasons can generally be classified as business-performance-related, or investor-sentiment-related. The former deals with how a stock’s business has performed or is expected to perform. And in terms of business performance, one of the really important numbers would be the stock’s profits. Meanwhile, the latter is about the overall mood of market participants – are investors more greedy than fearful, more pessim

Singapore Telecommunications Limited Is Trading Close To Its 52-Week Low Price: Is It Cheap Now?
Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SGX: Z74) or Singtel, is one of the three main telcos in Singapore. In the last 12 months, Singtel’s share price was down by 14% and is currently trading close to its 52-week low price (as of the time of writing). This raises an important question: Is Singtel’s stock cheap? Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to this. Still, we will try to answer that question by looking at its valuation. To do so, we will compare Singtel’s current valuation to the market in terms of three perspectives, namely price-to-book (PB), price-to-earnings (PE) and dividend yield. This should give us some hints of whether the company is trading at a bargain price. I will be using the SPDR STI ETF (SGX: ES3) as a proxy for the market; the SPDR STI ETF is an exchange

Portfolio Update 31 May 2018
So it was the magical month of May again. Those traders who believe in "Sell in May and stay away" and have sold their shares at the beginning of the month would have told their peers "see, I told you so....", but as a die-hard dividend investor I have not done it.Equity market did not do well in May. Lead by US, indices dropped in May. the Malaysian election result, the Trumpf-Kim summit, US-Sino trade war etc all did not affect the market positively. As at end of May, STI dropped 185.75, or 5.14% from a month ago. My portfolio dropped less than the index. Its value decreased 2.84% for the month. I am not surprised as many counters went XD this month.I sold my Hyflux preferential shares at the beginning of the month, at a loss of course.
