So What About Singtel? (Z74)


I had a few lots of Singtel (Z74) in my portfolio a while ago, which I liquidated for a small profit when I wanted to park my money somewhere else. I have a habit of re-examining my past holdings to see if there is good cause for re-investment. I've already pumped some more money into ST Engineering. Now, I have my sights set on Singtel once again. Singtel's share price dipped in December of … [Read more...]

12 things I learned from Parkway Life REIT’s 2017 AGM

Parkway Life REIT (PLife REIT; SGX: C2PU) has been in our portfolio for a number of years now and has given us solid capital gains and a consistent dividend yield since.

History with Croesus Retail Trust and current thoughts.

When I found out that Croesus Retail Trust could be privatised, I had a feeling of deja vu. It wasn't too long ago that something similar happened to Saizen REIT and, because of that, I lost a significant income generator. Now, it seems that I may lose another significant income generator. As I invest primarily for income, this creates a headache for me, especially when it is a relatively … [Read more...]

Last week, I sat down with a super investor one evening, who took the time to look at TTI’s strategy and results thus far, and shared his thoughts on how to “improve my productivity” (As he so gently and succinctly put it) Long time readers would know who I’m talking about. Apparantly, his friends are readers of SG TTI too. I can tell the said super investor spent some time understanding … [Read more...]



Osim stock, which was delisted from Singapore Stocks Exchange would be seeking a listing on the Hong Kong stocks markets as V3 stock. This is of interest to me since when Osim was delisted from Singapore stocks markets, I have thought that Osim would be kept as a private entity. I understand that proceeds from the V3 IPO would be used to repay a loan of $321.9 million obtained by Osim as well as … [Read more...]

Warchest is Ready – Taking Aim at SGX (S68)


With my warchest ready, I've been taking a look at Singapore Exchange [SGX] (S68) after talking with a friend from college (his name is Kean, and there is a link to his own blog in my links section). This counter is relatively ignored among my peers, but I figure increased trading volume from the recent bull-run could benefit SGX, especially if good sentiment persists throughout 2017.
