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 … [Read more...]

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 … [Read more...]

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 … [Read more...]

SPH REIT - It is announced yesterday that SPH will be going ahead with a REIT that will include its Paragon mall and Clementi Mall.

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 know from … [Read more...]

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 … [Read more...]

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.

Hence, an attribute that I often think is necessary for investment success is Discipline; I will leave this topic of … [Read more...]

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.

Hu An Cable Stock

Hu An cable stock has announced its earnings results for the quarter till 31 March 2013. I think not many investors know Hu An cable stock has announced its quarterly earnings report as the media spotlight has always been trained on the earnings announcements of market darlings which are mostly the STI constituent stocks.

Golden Agriculture Resources stock

Golden Agriculture Resources (GAR) stock net profits Q1’13 headed south by approximately 21% as compared with Q1’12. To me, this figure is actually quite good considering the high stockpile of crude palm oil (CPO) and the low CPO prices that we have. I believe investors also share the same feeling as myself as GAR’s stock price headed 2 cents higher to close at approximately 55 cents today. The … [Read more...]

Property Investments Clubs

There is an increasing number of property investments clubs in Singapore, which offer investors the opportunities to earn returns from property investments.

Golden Agriculture stock & Noble Group stock

Golden Agriculture will release its earnings tomorrow. This will be followed by Noble Group on Tuesday. I find that the earnings report release will determine the direction of the two commodities stock in the interim. The stock prices of these two commodity stocks have been in the doldrums for quite some months already. These two stocks have prices which are really at a discount currently and … [Read more...]

STI: are we on a bull run?

The STI has charged past the 3,400 mark. With this uptrend, the economic outlook in US, the current apparent “stabilization” of the Eurozone debt crisis, it is easy to believe that the Singapore stock market here is on a bull run next. Analysts have forecasted that the STI could even surge to the 3,600 mark. However, from all my analysis, the upsurge in the STI cascades down to only a select … [Read more...]

Stock companies AGMs: a candid account of my experience.

I attended an AGM of a company this week. I own quite a substantial number of shares in that company; hence naturally I am drawn to understanding more about the management and the company’s overall direction. There are a couple of stocks I own; hence this AGM I went is not necessary the one I talked in my previous posts. As I do not want to identify the company in this post, I will not be putting … [Read more...]
