Pan United stock

Pan United stock is the stock that Phillips Securities initiated coverage on Christmas Eve. Since that bullish report the stock firm has given on Pan United stock, Pan United stock has been rallying in stock price. Phillip Securities seems to me, very bullish on the stock, giving a target price of $0.88 for the stock (Pan United stock price has since risen to close to $0.78). According to the broking firm, Pan United stock offers investors a construction play stock which is quite broad-based since the products of Pan United, mainly cement and concrete are used in construction processes....

Buy or Sell Singapore stocks now?

The STI rose once again on this second trading day of the week. The whole picture of the Singapore stocks seems to be rosy judging at the performance of the STI today. US financial cliff worries, concerns over the European debt crisis and economic watch of China seem to be on the backyard of investors and traders’ minds now. With such a likely optimistic picture of the Singapore stock market painted, it seems very tempting for retail investors to jump and enter the stock market now to grab a bite of the momentum of the stock market. However, I...

What Stocks to Buy in Year 2013?

Every year, when it comes to this period, there will be many investment analysts coming out to give their takes on the stock forecasts, investment themes, which stocks to buy, market outlook for the coming year. This year is no exception. Already, I have read a few reports of investment analysts giving their predictions for the Singapore Stock Market next year and the general theme running through these reports is that next year should be a slightly better year for Singapore equities. However, with what the analysts have said, I will not go entering down into the stock market...

Ezion Stock and Noble Stock

With the current market outlook, I hold the view that it is better to hold more cash than equities. Today, I sold off my Noble Group stock at $1.18 which is among one of the intra-day high of the stock price. I made a small profit but it felt great to offload this stock especially when I bought this stock before Noble’s Vice Chairman sold around 200 million stocks, driving Noble Group stock to reach a low price in recent years of $1.05. With the freed-up liquidity, I bought Ezion stock, only a few lots first, in order to...

China Animal Health Stock privatisation: when?

In the recent weeks, there have been a few privatisation plays of SGX listed companies. Apart from the headline-grabbing F&N deal which is still not finalised, we also have the privatisation offer for SC Global and Petra Food’s cocoa unit. It seems to me that after the rush of IPO wave, the Myanmar-plays wave investors and traders here are seeing the wave of privatisation-plays now. This privatisation-play causes investors and traders to chase up potential stocks up for delisting or privatisation. Among those stocks which are potential privatisation candidates, one stock is still within my memory: China Animal Health...

Saving 70% of your Income

In today’s “Invest” section of “The Sunday Times, there was an article of a Financial Analyst who became financially free at the age of 32. It was revealed that he saves 70% of his income. When I learnt of this figure, I was quite surprised that he could save so much of his salary as average men are not able to save this proportion without compromising a reasonable standard of living. After thinking, I believe that the financial analyst is able to save 70% of his income mainly due to the fact that he earns a high income and...

Olam stock: to buy now?

Sitting on the sideline of the stock market, my muse these days is still about Olam stock. True, some stocks have risen in price while I sit on the sideline, but I am not too perturbed by it as it is not the time for me to buy now based on my trading strategy. Beside Olam stock, another stock which is garnering great interest is SC Global stock after Simon Cheong plans to take the company private. Anyway, property stocks are not my forte, hence I do not dwell too much on them, let us focus on Olam stock...

Olam Stock: trading buy

Olam stock closed at 5.3% lower at $1.515 today. Olam just announced yesterday that it will offer US$750 million in bonds and as much as US$500 million in warrants and Temasek Holdings, one of Olam’s largest shareholder said that it agrees to buy any rights not taken up by other investors. This should be good news but as we see today, investors are still quite jittery about the mud from Muddy Waters that has stuck to Olam when Muddy Waters said that Olam’s “180-degree reversal” on tapping the markets validates its thesis that the Singapore commodities trader is in...

Golden Agriculture stock

I sold my Golden Agriculture stock at $0.665 today after holding the stock at a cost price of $0.64. My stock profits are modest and I feel this is already quite okay amidst the stock climate engulfing Singapore and the world. Personally, I think Golden Agriculture stock is more of a stock for trading and not for holding long term in this economic climate. Hence I am still interested in buying Golden Agriculture stock back once its stock price heads south to the range of $0.61 to $0.62. I will as usual adopt my “wait and see” technique as...

Great Investment Returns

The general theme that runs through yesterday’s The Sunday Times Invest section was that of Investment Foresight. In many articles carried in the Invest section, there were plenty of examples to demonstrate that good financial rewards go to those investors with great foresight. It was mentioned in the article one of the most classic examples around of how a US$10,000 invested in Apples stock few decades ago will now give you a return of over US$750,000 today. Also, in an interview with the owner of Evergreen bookshop, it was revealed that the owner actually bought an office space for...

Though I have not explicitly made this point which I am going to share with you readers a main...

Singapore Stock Drama

The US has its “US financial cliff”. Europe has its “Europe Debt Crisis”. China has its “China Economical Concerns” and what has Singapore has with regard to the stock market scene here? Trading in Singapore stock market can be a tad boring as our Singapore stock market is a defensive one, there is not much of a roller-coaster swing in stock price as witnessed in other stock markets. Hence, sometime, trading in our Singapore stock market can be quite boring. However, in recent weeks, there is quite a lot of action for Singapore investors: First of all, we still...

SMRT bus drivers & share price

Investors of SMRT might be getting a bit jittery yesterday when 102 SMRT bus drivers, who hailed from China staged a “no-show” by gathering at the void deck of their Woodlands dormitory on Monday 26 Nov 12 and refused to work. Why? The drivers were definitely not waiting for PSY to come to Singapore and dance Gangnam Style with him! The drivers were unhappy with their pays! SMRT management moved swiftly to convene a conversation with the drivers to understand their concerns. However there were still 60 bus drivers who refused to start work on Tuesday. As of this...

There are a number of material similarities in the...

Life is BIGGER than an Investment

Today, I read of a concept called Social Investment or Social Insurance in a news article. Last week, the article talked about having a career as an investment and this week, it dwelled on having personal networks and contacts as a form of investment or insurance.  Well, actually this concept is not new to me as personally, I have really thought that Life is more about making money and when one uses the term Investment to define something intrinsic as family or relationships, it does not really go down well with me as investments are mainly defined in two...
