How to trade Singapore stocks now?

The Singapore stocks markets have been going up and down in response to the global stocks markets. Many investors will wonder whether this is a time to enter into the Singapore stocks markets now. Well, based on the current STI reading, I think it is still not too cheap to enter into the Singapore stocks markets, especially if we are talking about blue-chip stocks. We are not at a time when the Singapore stocks are at a STI level of below 3,000 though we have noted the “southing” of the STI due to the low oil prices. Instead, I...

Sakae holdings stock

I read that Sakae Holdings, the company behind the popular Sakae Sushi chain of restaurants is expanding into corporate finance advisory services and has even secured a first client in Q&M dental. I am even surprised that Mr Douglas Foo, the CEO of Sakae Holdings has, as reported, handed most of the management of the business of Sakae Holdings to his sister while he focuses on the corporate finance advisory services business. This is not the first time that Singapore companies have taken on the diversification path of adding different businesses into their portfolio. I always wonder whether such...

Sheng Siong stock: Part Two

My earlier post on Sheng Siong stock was quite brief (you can read the post here), hence I am doing a follow-up post on this stock here. Coincidentally, around the time when my earlier post was put up, it was announced that Sheng Siong has acquired another site for a new supermarket at Tampines Central. The expansion of Sheng Siong’s stores can only translate into more revenue and also profits (if food price inflation and administration costs are kept reined in). I like shopping at Sheng Siong and can relate to the “wet-market experience” that Sheng Siong has always...

Sheng Siong stock

The stock prices of most cyclical stocks on the Singapore stocks markets have been shaped by the economical news from the United States as well as the low oil prices, so for today, I will be talking about a more defensive stock and this stock is none other than Sheng Siong stock. I will not be talking about the financial figures for this stock but rather touch on the more qualitative aspects of this stock. Sheng Siong supermarkets are well-known to Singaporeans and I have always noted that Sheng Siong supermarkets are always quite packed with shoppers, this bodes...

Ying Li International Stock

In my yesterday’s post, I have mentioned that Ying Li International stock will head south in price as from yesterday’s price, investors are deciding; and I have thought that they might have factored in the current markets atmosphere for Ying Li stock. Today (6 Jan 2015), Ying Li International advanced 3.8% to close the trading session at $0.275, a price level which is very motivating for investors who have been invested in the stock. What is more noteworthy is the trading volume for today: 14.28 million which is more than double the trading volume for 5 Jan 2015; with...

Analysis of Five Singapore stocks

Today, the STI went south by 1.26%. I am currently sitting on the fence waiting for a sign to enter the stocks markets into the stocks which are on my “radar”. Here are my commentary and analysis of some Singapore stocks: Penguin International stock: this stock went 4.7% up today after my post over the previous weekend. Should this stock heads up beyond the $0.235 mark, then the stock will rally up. Ying Li international: this stock manages to hold its ground in today’s trading though some other stocks have gone south. Investors are still not decisive though I...

Will these two S-chip stocks become multi-baggars?

Midas stock rallied 24% on 2 Jan 2015 to close at $0.31. This is really a good rally for Midas, a China S-chip stock on SGX, especially when Midas has been experiencing “lacklustre” performance on the Singapore stocks markets like many of the other S-chips on our bourse. Even with a 24% rally on 2 Jan 2015, Midas stock price is still approximately 80% below its high of $0.56 reached by the stock in January 2013. I believe the performance of Midas stock has to do with the news of the merger of China’s top two train makers, CNR...

Penguin International stock

Penguin International is a Singapore company listed on the SGX with businesses in the design, building, chartering, repair, maintenance and sales of crewboats and ferries. What I like about Penguin International Stock 1) Profitability: Penguin International is a profitable company which makes $25 million in profits for the first nine months of FY2014; this is already approximately 56% higher than its full FY2013 profits. 2) Strong Institutional Investors: Temasek Holdings, through a subsidiary of Keppel Corporation has a 6.24% stake in Penguin International. To me, this investment by a solid investor is a testament to the quality of Penguin...

Happy New Year 2015, Singapore

Dear readers, a Happy New Year 2015 to you! It is a cool morning for Singapore on the first day of year 2015 and hence relaxing at home in this coolness not often experienced in Singapore is quite comfortable. I believe many Singaporeans are still in their sleep, after a late night of partying all across the island. Though I and my family did not join in the countdown to year 2015, I watched the countdown screening on Channel Five on television till I almost dozed off, not because the Korean bands were boring, in fact they have such...

Privatization stocks

As I read my April 2014 posts of SSI in a bid to conclude my posts on SSI for the year, I noticed how April 2014 was a month when many investors turned speculative, speculating on which of the stocks on SGX will be taken private next. We have Hotel Properties Limited, Capital Malls Asia and Goodpack as some of the stocks on SGX which were taken private for year 2014. Going forward to 2015, some analysts predict that there will still be some mergers, acquisitions and consolidation in the stock companies as companies with good fundamentals and trading...

Recommended stocks for year 2015

Every year, when it comes to this time of the year, there will be some stock analysts giving their takes or predictions of the stocks which they would recommend for the coming year. Most of these analyst reports will also be published in January of the coming year. As always, I read these analyst reports with an “open mind”, I would just want to understand their rationale behind their recommendation while believing more of my analysis when it comes to decisions that involve my hard-earned monies. I just did some reading of the posts which I have published for...

My Investment Strategies for Year 2015: trade selective stocks selectively

It’s that time of the year once again when I review my investment portfolio for the year: year 2014. Year 2014 commenced with bullish analyst reports, as always for the beginning of every year (its all about hope, I believe). As we see now, the STI has modest gains for this year. The gains registered by the STI reflected just how there were surprises on the Singapore stocks market for the year and this has inevitably shaped my investment portfolio for year 2014 as well. Compared with year 2013, each of my dividends and trading profits for year 2013...

Merry Christmas Singapore Stocks Investing

Dear readers, Merry Christmas to you! Many decades ago, while I was in full-time National Service, in an attempt to expedite us recruits to doing something, my sergeant yelled: “What are you waiting for? Christmas?” Yes, its Christmas now, my sergeant and everyone! While I do not really party all out to celebrate Christmas, Christmas to me is quite a meaningful festival as first and foremost, Christmas is all about celebration of love and secondly it is that festival before the close of the year and it is while during Christmas every year that I do my “stock taking”...
