Biosensors, Noble Group and Golden Agriculture stocks: what’s next?

Today, Biosensors, Noble Group and Golden Agriculture stocks announced their quarterly results around the close of the markets. I am quite disappointed to read of the results as they were not very good results. I would have expected that Noble Group and Golden Agriculture stocks to have better results riding on what some have said of the commodities recovery. I am also quite disappointed at Biosensors Group which had before net cash US$600 million before. I am particularly focused on these three companies as I have some stocks held in these three companies. Nevertheless, having remembered how I have...

Overwhelmed but need a clear mind to think of my Investment Strategies

I need some time to think over my investment or should I say, trading strategies. As you know now is the companies’ results reporting season, hence there is actually quite a lot of information floating around. Whether a company does well or not in the previous quarter, it does not mean that the results will be a predicator for the next earnings results. Hence I do not really think about what other analysts are writing about based on the quarterly earnings reports from the companies. Having said that, the earning results of the previous quarters will still somehow shape...

SGX mulling measures on penny stocks

I read from today’s newspapers that the SGX is mulling over measures on penny stocks. It was reported in the same article that trading in stocks worth just a few cents is not reasonable. No doubt, the mulling over of measures to curb trading in penny stocks stems from the high-profile saga concerning Blumont, Asiasons and LionGold, but it seems that following this saga, penny stocks have become more dangerous for investors to invest or trade, hence warranting the consideration of SGX. I find it not that fair to introduce measures that may ultimately curb investors’ interest in other...

Four Singapore offshore marine stocks in focus for the week

There are four offshore & marine related Singapore stocks in focus for the week, let me share them with you. First of all, we have Vikings. This offshore & marine stock has not been in the radar of investors like its peers until Mr Andy Lim of Vikings announced that the company will be entering into the rigs-building business by partnering with an offshore and marine veteran. As I have shared in an earlier post, the CFO of Vikings said in an interview with Business Singapore something to the effect that there is enough room for business for Vikings...

Charles Darwin’s theory to stocks investing

Sometimes, it is not that easy to write on a daily basis on the Singapore Stocks Markets when there are no clear discernible trends to note and share with all of you. And clearly, the Singapore Stocks Markets are currently giving not much of an indication of a trend. Some analysts are saying that the stock markets are heading up while other analysts say that the stock markets are not really entering into a bullish rally stage. I tend to agree with the latter views as I quite believe that the Singapore stocks markets will respond once more when...

Does Singapore stocks market have our own characteristics?

I read from an analyst report that Singapore investors are awaiting the US job data report for October 2013 which would give them clues to the timeline that the Federal Reserves may be “tapering” the Quantitative Easing (QE). Hence I believe that Singapore stocks market will respond in tandem with the results of the US job data report. As always, Singapore investors are responsive to the economic figures and reports from US and also from China. At first when I was a newbie investor, I find it a bit frustrating as to why our Singapore stocks markets have no...

Stock themes of the Singapore Stocks Markets

Singapore investors, traders and speculators have been chasing up the three penny stocks: Blumont, Asiasons and LionGold before the three stocks went south; thereafter there were some doubts of the local investors as to whether to chase penny stocks. During the time of their deliberation, Skyone, another penny stock went south, with a magnitude that could rival that of the three aforementioned stocks. I observe that penny stocks have become more moderately traded after the penny stocks fiasco. Following the penny stocks theme, the next theme I observe for the Singapore stocks markets is the commodities stocks as two...

Year-End Bonuses 2013

How time flies, it is now November 2013. Many of us will receive our Year-End Bonuses for year 2013 soon! I think for many of us, Year-End bonuses are monetary incentives which reward us for our hard work and the long number of hours which we have put in in our work. Hence it is not surprising that we will be looking forward to our year-end bonuses. For a group of us, the year-end bonuses will comprise the 13th month income and on top of the 13th month income, employers will have the discretion to give more bonuses to...

Five Figures Dividends Income per month

The Sunday Times reported how a Singaporean man turns full-time professional investor and earns a five figures dividends income every month. I have read some netizens’ views on the report. As shared by the readers and for which I agree, to earn at least $10,000 per month dividends (which is $120,000 per year), assuming a modest 5% dividend yield, one would need to have at least $2.4 million so that he could deploy this sum of monies into a dividend-earning equity such as a Reits which offers a minimum of 5% to 6%. I believe for many of us,...

Stocks Market Commentary & Viva Industrial Trust stock

performance Viva Industrial Trust made its trading debut on the SGX today. I did not apply for the trust due to the reasons I have given in an earlier posting. As I have expected, Viva Industrial Trust IPO met with a lukewarm response, with its stock price closing unchanged at the end of the trading session of its day of debut. Also, Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services assigned its ‘BB+’ long-term corporate credit rating to Viva Industrial Reit. According to the report: “VI-Reit’s limited asset diversity with reliance on a single asset–UE Bizhub EAST–exposes it to event risk from...

Lessons and summaries of the BAL stocks saga

Blumont, Asiasons and LionGold (“BAL”) managed to gain back some cents on 1 Nov 13 after selling of the stocks by investors this week as SGX said that it will still conduct investigations into the three stock counters despites lifting the “designated securities” label off them. One lesson I learnt from this BAL stocks saga is that even if the “designated securities” label is taken off from stocks, it does not mean that SGX is giving investors an “all-clear” signal that the three stocks are okay. Indeed, beside myself, I think that through this BAL stocks saga, many retail...

Viva Industrial Trust IPO: why a neutral call?

While the IPO application for Viva Industrial Trust IPO might have closed or might be closing, there is no stopping investors from analysing Viva Industrial Trust IPO. In my earlier post, I think I did not really give a good analysis or insight of Viva Industrial Trust IPO hence I feel that I must give readers some good analysis in this post. However before I could even start my post going to give my readers a good analysis of Viva Industrial Trust IPO, I read an analyst report of Viva Industrial Trust IPO and why the analyst is giving...

Pacific Radiance IPO

Pacific Radiance IPO next? Pacific Radiance lodged its preliminary prospectus with the MAS on 28 October 2013 and hence I think Pacific Radiance IPO will be on the cards soon. As you may have read in the news Pacific Radiance is in the offshore and marine businesses. To give you more details, Pacific Radiance’s businesses can be classified under three divisions: namely (1) offshore support services businesses (i.e. owns and operates offshore vessels to assist and support the offshore oil and gas industry as well as provides ship management and agency services), (2) subsea businesses (i.e. provides subsea services...

Golden Agriculture stock

Today (31 Oct 13), Golden Agriculture stock found itself in the top volumes list with a good showing at a closing price of $0.59. To me, looking at Golden Agriculture stock in the top volumes list reminds me of quite some time back, when Golden Agriculture stock keeps being featured in the top volumes list. Then, the Crude Palm Oil (CPO) prices went south; there was a stockpile of CPO which results in the CPO prices heading south that in turns results in Golden Agriculture stock to reach as low as below 50 cents in some instances. Being right...
