STI stock outlook

STI was choppy today with investors still taking cues from Bernake’s QE comments made a week ago as well as the cautious outlook on the US, China and Europe economy. STI as I have already shared is already oversold, therefore, for those investors who are greedy when others are fearful, this is the time to consider picking up some stocks at a good discount. But the question is how more south can stocks still head? We do not want to enter into a stock when the stock price may still head south. We do not want to enter into...

STI outlook : 3 June 13

Singapore stocks closed lower today by 0.61%. The STI is at 3,291.08. I read the news commentary that carried interviews with a number of investment analysts. The analysts interviewed opined that the Singapore stock market correction that the stock community is experiencing will only recover soon as this is just a moderation stock correction according to them. Some of the investment analysts said that US will not really scale back its QE (monetary easing programme) due to the outlook of the US economy. Even if the QE is to be scaled back, that will still bode well for stocks...

Singapore Stocks self-fulfilling prophecy!

Singapore stocks performed well in the first three weeks of May this year, causing the STI to rise and hover around the 3,400 mark. There was so much optimism then and some investment analysts even predicted that the STI could go all the way to 3,700 this year. But alas, the Chief of US Federal Reserves said something and the market did their own interpretation which caused STI to go down, and down till the STI is oversold. Unlike in the past when REITs were not affected much, this time round, due to the nature of the Federal Reserve’s...

STI is oversold & my Commodities Picks

STI is oversold , according to RSI. This follows the mass selling of stocks by Singapore investors this week, fuelled by speculation that the US Federal Reserves may be scaling back its quantitative easing following news that the economy of US may be getting better. I find it interesting to decipher that investors’ sentiments now rely on speculation rather than actual concrete economic data coming from the US or the Europe. Besides stocks, REITs is another category that see its value declining as investors worry that the low-interest rates may be replaced with higher interest rates as the liquidity-churning...

ASIA PAY TV TRUST: why no perform well?

ASIA PAY TV TRUST debuted on the SGX yesterday, closing 5% south. I believe investors who have subscribed to many lots and have gotten many lots of ASIA PAY TV TRUST stocks would definitely not be very happy. For the IPO stocks which have debuted on SGX this year, almost all of the stocks performed very well on their first day of trading on SGX hence it is really a surprise to many that ASIA PAY TV TRUST did not only perform below expectation, it slided 5% down on just the first day of trading. This begs the question...

SPH REIT

SPH REIT – It is announced yesterday that SPH will be going ahead with a REIT that will include its Paragon mall and Clementi Mall. There will be another addition to the property portfolio of SPH and that is, from what I read in the newspapers some weeks ago: Seletar Mall. I believe the news of such a Reit can only enhance the net worth of SPH. SPH has been managing its print business till its foray into retail properties and other forms of business. I can see that SPH can grow to a point where it becomes a...

My perspectives on IPO stocks and Investments

The IPO stocks market in Singapore is set abuzz once again with the IPOs of a slew of new stocks like SoilBuild Construction, Asia Pay TV Trust and more. I have quite a number of colleagues who subscribe to each of these IPO offerings with the aim to achieve some “coffee money” profits from selling these stocks on the 1st day of listing provided that these stocks debut with a profit. I know from my experience that it is not always that the IPO stocks will debut with a northwards direction, though the probability of these stocks debuting higher...

Singapore Stocks Outlook

Singapore’s STI headed south by 1.77% last Friday, following the speech by the Chief of Federal Reserves. This 1.77% is really a number compared to the sideways movement of STI that investors have seen in weeks. STI’s performance is in line with what other foreign bourses experiences. But unlike other southward movement of STI, I could see that REITs are affected as well last Friday. Many otherwise defensive REITs headed south by quite a large percentage. Even AIMSAMPI Reit also headed south by 5.191%. And this performance is replicated across the spectrum of REITs on SGX. The performance of...

XMH is the initials of “Xin Ming Hua”. XMH deals in...

Sell (stocks) in May and go away?

Amidst all the market actions on the SGX, it is important to keep a level-head at all times and take a step back some time to keep stock of what is happening on the stocks market. I mean, it is quite easy to get excited with the buzz of hot stocks with emotions becoming high. Hence, an attribute that I often think is necessary for investment success is Discipline; I will leave this topic of “ingredients of investment success” to another blog post, today I will just share my feelings of the general outlook as of now. The adage...

SOILBUILD IPO seeks to raise $42 million

SOILBUILD IPO will seek to raise $42 million via offering 168 million shares at 25 cents each. SOILBUILD IPO opened yesterday and will close at 12 noon on May 22. Of the 168 million shares, 2 million shares are for public offer and the remaining 166 million shares are for placement. SOILBUILD is not new to me as it was previously listed in SGX in 2005 but was taken in 2010 owing to low trading volumes and an undervalued share price. Since the delisting, SOILBUILD has entered the public housing market and third-party agreements. SOILBUILD has a track record...

China MinZhong stock

China MinZhong stock is hovering at around $1.04 in stock price. China MinZhong stock, as we can see from the name, is a S-chip stock. When local investors learn of the term “S-chip”, the feeling that may strike into the hearts of some of them is that of fear; this is because some local investors have experienced some S-chip stocks which were simply not good and that have cost their pockets. This explains why there is a lacklustre interest in S-chip stocks in the stock markets currently. I think that when one is to buy into a S-chip stock...
