4 Stocks This Week (Sector Rotation) [18 October 2019] – Thai Beverage; Dairy Farm; DBS; Singtel
Sector rotation is an investment strategy which involves the movement of investment funds from one sector to another, in an attempt to beat the market return. The idea is simple, instead of holding equal weight in all sectors, an investor could potentially beat the market by holding a bigger proportion of his portfolio in strong sectors and a lower proportion of the portfolio in weaker sectors. This sector rotation strategy, when applied correctly, could result in higher returns over a period of time, as opposed to simple investing equally into the market as a whole. For example, one could favor aggressive stocks such as banks, which are likely to do well during periods of growth. During periods of uncertainty, defensive stocks such as telco companies may perform better. In this week’s e

8 Key Takeaways From SPH FY2019 Results
SPH announced its' Full Year 2019 earnings this evening after market-hours.Here are some of the key takeaways from the results:1.) Print & Media Business Disappoints AgainRevenue for the traditional media business declined by $78.9m from $655.8m in FY2018 to $576.9m in FY2019, which translates into 12% down year on year.Revenue contribution from print advertisement and circulation are down to $68m this year, which is approximately 12% down year on year.The only saving grace is the digital advertisement revenue segment which shows growth year on year of $1.5m (6%), though not significant enough.At $576.9m revenue for the media, it still takes up the bigger chunk of the revenue (59% of overall revenue) so it remains to be seen if we're continue to see a slow structural decline in the pri

Singtel share price to explode with data centre REIT?
Will the management drop the bombshell? Singtel share price became the talk of the town in recent days when DBS analysts claimed that Singtel may cut dividend payouts to $0.13 to $0.15 for FY2021 and had set target price of $3.12 for Singtel share price. On the other hand, there were market speculations that Singtel could possibly monetize its data centres through REIT, thereby unlocking value and freeing up cash flow for capital expenditure and dividends. DBS’ argument is that results of Singtel’s regional associates will cause harm to Singtel’s bottom-line and roiled Singel share price in the process. To this end, I do not dismiss such a possibility. If investors looked back, share of pre-tax profits from regional associated reached an alarming 6-year low of $1.5 billion in FY2019,

8 things I learned from the 2019 Singtel AGM
Shares of Singapore telcos have taken a beating over the past few years. Due to the continued liberalisation of the industry and the heightened competition, profit margins have been squeezed and profits steadily eroded. For Singtel, its net profit fell 43.5% year-on-year to $3.1 billion in FY2019 while many of its regional associates also recorded negative growth in pre-tax profit contributions. It seems that the telco industry has become extremely tough to operate in. To mitigate this, Singtel has looked to diversify into ‘digital businesses’, namely cybersecurity and digital marketing which the chairman highlighted in his latest annual message to shareholders. I decided to attend this year’s AGM to gain new insights from the management about the telco industry and their pla

6 Reasons Why I Think DBS' Report On Singtel Is Overly Bearish
I am writing this in a response to an article from DBS which caught everyone's attention regarding the likelihood that Singtel may cut its dividend for the first time in 20 years from FY2021 onwards.If you have not read the article, you can read it here.In the article, the analyst drew from the thesis that Singtel might have to cut its "unsustainable" dividend payout to 13 ~ 15 cents/share mainly due to the increasing capex requirement from the 5G spectrum roll-out, the declining mobile users and deteriorating regional associates performances, which is mainly attributed to Bharti and Telkomsel (slowing growth).While the general thesis may sound reasonable at glance, I think the dividend cut from the current 17.5 to 13 ~ 15 cents from FY2021 onwards may be overly bearish.Here's 6 reasons wh

[Cheatsheet] What Are The Best SIM-Only Plans In Singapore (2019 Edition)
This article was first published on 3 August 2018 and has been updated on 2 October 2019 to reflect the latest prices and plans. Many of us spend several hundred dollars or more each year on our mobile phone plans but rarely consider whether there are better mobile subscriptions in the market when our contracts run down. The main reason – we are often lured by seemingly lucrative deals on the latest handphone models rather than trying to source for the best mobile subscription that actually fits our usage requirement. Often, we end up opting for more expensive plans just to enjoy the initial handset subsidy. To lower the cost of buying the new phone, we also typically trade-in our perfectly working mobile phones which may have nabbed us a better deal if we sold it on Carousell, eBay or

Singtel share price smashed into wall
What a gory correction. After delivering a set of disappointing quarterly results that saw Singtel clocking the seventh consecutive quarter of declining profits, Singtel share price tumbled from a high of $3.55 in July to a low of $3.12 on 27 September. The 12% correction would have caused long-term investors to panic. Question now is: where would Singtel share price go from here? On 2 July 2019, I highlighted that Singtel share price would be entering a dark chapter but is still considered an excellent investment for the long run due to the telco’s massive regional presence. Thus, investors should stay calm despite Singapore share price volatility. To make money out of this counter, investors should set the appropriate entry price. Based on the current form, it seems that Singtel shar

Dealing with Maid Problems...
One the same day we buried my dad at sea, my mum and myself went over to the police station to make a police report. This is first time in my life that I had to do so and it was an interesting experience.We fired our maid after she racked up $800 in phone bills using my father's phone while he was on his deathbed. The following month Singtel sent us a bigger bombshell - a $2,000 bill for the calls made to Myanmar as well as paid apps installed on my father's phone !My first objective was to see whether this can somehow be positioned as theft on my maid's part, my second objective is to create a paper trail to seek an exemption from these fees by appealing to Singtel.I was not successful at the police station to convince them that our maid stole from us.

How Much Do The iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro And iPhone 11 Pro Max Cost In Singapore (And Why Are They So Expensive?)
No matter what you think about Apple and the iPhone, there is no doubt that ever since the first iPhone was launched in 2007, it is the phone to watch, emulate and beat. The first iPhone was a pioneer in implementing a usable, fully touchscreen-based interface, with an integrated app eco-system. Its emergence was the catalyst for the Android consortium, which now powers billions of devices around the world. The influence of the iPhone is so strong that when the iPhone went in dubious directions –others still followed. When the iPhone 7 “courageously” removed the headphone jack, one phone manufacturer after another followed suit. It was the iPhone X that made it alright to have an ugly notch on the front of your phone. And it was also the iPhone X that breached the USD $1,000 barrier

Does Delfi Limited Have a Sweet Business Model?
Delfi Limited (SGX: P34) manufactures and distributes branded consumer products that are sold in over 17 countries including Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Australia and Thailand. Delfi was formerly known as Petra Foods Limited but changed its name in May 2016, and has a portfolio of established brands such as “SilverQueen” and “Ceres”, which are household names in Indonesia. While Delfi has a long operating track record and a strong portfolio of brands in Indonesia, the consumer goods market’s fortunes are tied to the economy and the industry itself is also fragmented, with many local and foreign players jostling for a piece of the pie. A company’s reputation and branding will determine if it attains dominant mind share when consumers shop

The Art of Thinking Clearly: Part 8
Here’s yet another three biases and fallacies taken from the book “The Art of Thinking Clearly” by Rolf Dobelli. Investors need to be always alert for such biases as they can screw up your investment thought process and cause you to make costly mistakes. The problem with averages We all have to be very careful when dealing with averages. There is no such thing as a “normal” average, as each data set is unique and may be vastly different, making them incomparable. Also, if there is an anomaly or an outlier (i.e. a statistic which differs greatly from the norm), this will skew the average significantly. An example would be the comparison of dividend yields in a data set of 10 companies within an industry. Nine of these companies may have dividend yields ranging

Chart of the Week: Differing Fortunes of Singtel and NetLink NBN Trust
NetLink NBN Trust (SGX: CJLU) was “born” out of Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SGX: Z74) in July 2017. Looking at the duo today — boy, we see very different fortunes. Since NetLink NBN Trust’s IPO, units have risen some 10%, compared to a 21% decline in Singtel shares. In comparison, Singapore’s stock market benchmark, the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI), has declined by around 5%. In my opinion, the vast difference in the share price performances between NetLink NBN Trust and Singtel can be attributed to the underlying strength of their respective businesses. NetLink NBN Trust has a resilient business model with predictable cash flows. Since the trust is the sole nationwide provider of residential fibre network here, it is hard to knock the company of

A Better Way To Pay Your AXS Bills? Here’s Why The Quiet Addition Of GrabPay Is Great News For AXS Users
Without any doubt, AXS is one of the most widely-used bill payment platforms in Singapore. Starting with introduction of the standalone AXS Station kiosks in 2001, AXS has now expanded its offerings with both online and mobile app (m-Station) payment. With the AXS m-Station app, Singaporeans can now pay their bills or fines, including those from government agencies or public institutions, right at the convenience of their smartphones anytime and anywhere. Unlike the kiosk which accepts only bank ATM cards, AXS m-Station provides multiple payment modes, such as PayLah, eNETS and credit cards. While the credit card option seems to be attractive, it comes with its own limitations. For instance, only credit cards from Citibank, DBS/POSB, UOB, OCBC banks and Diners Club, as well as MasterCard

Is It a Good Time to Buy Hong Kong Stocks?
To say that Hong Kong stocks have been volatile the last few months would be a massive understatement. The Hang Seng Index, a barometer of the Hong Kong stock market, has had wild swings this year. It made impressive gains in the first half of 2019, from around 25,130 to a peak of close to 30,160. But political unrests and protests in the city have rocked investor sentiment. Since the protests began in the city, the Hang Seng Index has shed around 12%. This week, though, there was some reprieve as Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam announced the withdrawal of the hugely unpopular extradition bill. Buoyed by the news, investors flooded the market, pushing the Hang Seng Index up 4% on Tuesday, the day the news broke, marking the biggest single-day gain since November 2018.  Long-term impact?
