Dyna-Mac stock

Dyna-Mac stock went “XD” today (6 May 14) with a distribution of two-cents per share. Based on Dyna-Mac’s closing price on 5 May 14 of 40.5 cents, this dividend works out to around 4.9% and I have bought Dyna-Mac stock below 40-cents. I observe that Dyna-Mac stock price seems to be hovering around 39-cents when it then went as high to 41.5-cents on speculation (in my thinking) that it may be a possible target for privatisation by Temasek Holdings as the latter has a stake of around 24% in Dyna-Mac. Desmond Lim, the founder of Dyna-Mac holds another stake...

Lee Lik Hsin Tiger Airways stock

Lee Lik Hsin, new CEO of Tiger Airways as Tiger Airways stock price remains unchanged today (7 May 14) after Tiger Airways announced its CEO, Mr Koay will be replaced with a SIA veteran, Mr Lee Lik Hsin. The announcement came after Tiger Airways stock price headed south by as much as 8-% on 5 May 14 after another year of disappointing financial results. Tiger Airways has also issued a note that its stock may be on the SGX’s watch-list after three consecutive years of non-profits. In an earlier post, I have shared with readers my long-term investment view...

SMRT stock: why some investors may buy

SMRT stock was hovering around the $1.02 mark when it went all the way to $1.25+ as investors see now. I believe some investors are buying SMRT stock as they think that there could be a financial framework agreement being worked out between SMRT and the government over the ownership of SMRT’s assets. Secondly, investors may be looking at SMRT being more of a transport company as SMRT is making forays into retail (e.g. Sports Hub) and its advertising revenue seems to be increasing too. This second point may give investors some impressions that SMRT’s revenues will go up...

OCBC stock: sold

I sold my OCBC stock today at a selling price of $9.78. I have been keeping the OCBC stock since I bought the stock at $9.20+. Inclusive of the dividends, my profit margins are around seven-percentages. I think it is a decent profit margin. While I could possibly hold OCBC stock for quite some time more, for the stock price to appreciate to possibly, say $10; I think year-to-date, Singapore stocks have been performing quite well to the point that I think there may be some “stocks markets corrections” especially when they have this maxim that says “Sell in...

What has Spider Man 2 got to do with Singapore Stocks

I have watched “Spider Man 2” and the show is Great and I encourage all of you to watch it if you like action-thriller movies. The show is really worth my monies and during the time watching the movie, I really feel quite de-stressed: away from the maddening crowds, away from the high cost of living and away from the high levels of stress. This time round, the storyline of Spider Man 2 is such that I was reminded of a stock in Singapore and why is it so? To know more, please read on! To begin with, “Singapore”...

UE E&C’s stock price

UE E&C’s stock price has been going down even before it went “XD”. On 2-May-2014, UE E&C’s stock price went as low to $1.31 upon “XD”. I bought some of UE E&C’s stocks and sold them off at around 14% upside then I just bought some more of these stocks to pocket the dividends. I have now gotten the dividends and am looking at UE E&C’s stock price once again to assess whether it is “worth it” to enter and buy this stock again. UE E&C has three businesses: construction, engineering and building materials with the respective appropriate revenue...

Tiger Airways stocks: Buy, Hold or Sell?

Today, Tiger Airways’ stock price went south following announcements of its financial performance last week. I have expected Tiger Airways’ stock performance today after I read its financial report last week. I also read of Tiger Airways’ plans to streamline its fleet size by putting to “park” some of its airplanes as part of its strategies forwards. If you have followed me, you would have known that I have investments in Tiger Airways. So why did I not sell my stake in Tiger Airways and still invest in a non-profits company anyway? Well, this is due to my long-term...

LionGold stock

LionGold stock has been heading south ever since it was one of the three penny stocks in the “penny stocks rout” of October 2013. I think when LionGold stock was “The Think Environment”, it had better appeal with investors due to its more defensive recycling business. I do not mean that mining, extraction of gold is not a good business, but I mean LionGold stock has not been performing well after the “rout”. There are also more such metals extraction companies on the stock markets these days. Of the three penny stocks “caught” in the “rout”, I prefer LionGold...

Penguin International stock

Penguin International stock, as a stock, may not be well-known to many investors but the business of Penguin International Limited is a very respectable one. Penguin International stock is one of the many offshore and marine stocks here in Singapore. When it comes to the offshore and marine fraternity here in Singapore, we always mention names like Keppel Corp and Sembcorp Marine, both of which are the world’s largest rig builders, but do you know Penguin International is also the world’s first, in being the world’s most prolific builder of crewboats and the world’s fastest builder of crewboats as...

Rowsley stock

Rowsley stock is one of those stocks which I am not familiar with though I know on some trading days, this stock can be the darling of the market players. I know this stock is one of those stocks Billionaire Peter Lim invests in and this stock is focused on Southern Malaysia. To find out more about the stock, I read Rowsley’s annual report. I am surprised to read that the Chairman of Rowsley was the immediate former Permanent Secretary for Defence, one of the top civil servants. Reading on, I am even surprised to read that the CEO...

King Wan stock

King Wan stock has been attracting quite some attention ever since its sales of its assets to Kasei Thai Industry Sugar (KTIS). Some analysts have come out to give a “Buy” recommendation on King Wan stock, saying something to the effect that the sales will translate into more dividends for King Wan’s shareholders. I am not familiar with King Wan stock hence I know that I must study the business of King Wan more thoroughly in order to see whether or not I should buy the stock. In my opinion, I think an investor should understand more businesses so...

My Investment Portfolio for the week

Now is the time, once again to review my investment portfolio for the week of 28 April 2014 to 2 May 2014. Pretty much, with my investment portfolio made up of some blue-chip stocks, my investment portfolio moves in tandem as such. Let us first recall the movers of the STI in the past few weeks: the week before, we have SMRT stock heading up north impressively amidst speculation of privatisation, nationalisation; we have then the acquisitions/privatisations of CapitaMalls Asia and Hotel Properties Limited the week before and for the week of 28 April 2014 to 2 May 2014,...

My Stocks AGMs experience

With many companies holding their AGMs, I took time to attend two AGMs on a “back-to-back” basis. Two AGMs on a day is really the maximum number of AGMs I can squeeze in a day and I am not sure whether this is the common experience of many retail investors. With many stocks in my portfolio, I chose the two stocks for which the AGMs I am interested to attend carefully. First I am not keen to attend an AGM of a listed company which I have attended before. Second, I believe in attending an AGM of a company...

Hutchinson Ports Holdings Trust AGM

Hutchinson Ports Holdings Trust (“HPH”) has delivered a set of quarterly results which is good, driven by the sales of its stake in Asia Containers Terminals (“ACT”). HPH as a stock is the best performer in STI, when it comes to dividends yields payouts as HPH has been paying its unit holders an average payouts of around 7.8%. I bought HPH at IPO some years back and to-date, this stock has not risen in price above its IPO pricing of US $1.03. However I am happy as this stock has been giving me good dividends and I intend to...

What Investors need to do next?

Singapore stocks performed in a lacklustre trade on 29 April 14 ahead of the Federal Reserves’ meeting. The STI and Singapore stocks as a whole behave quite good year-to-date. Investors have been bullish and the spate of acquisition and delisting whether actual or potential have sparked a new wave of interest among retail investors since the cooling down of their appetites following the penny stocks “saga” of October 2013. Well is it a time for market correction soon? Investors are reminded of the adage: “Sell in May and Go away” as well as the correction of the global stocks...
