SUPER GROUP STOCK

SUPER GROUP STOCK is one of the Singapore stock market’s darlings, now worth more than $2 billion in market capitalization, thanks to the meteoric rise in its stock price. I have always wanted to know more about Super Group stock, beyond all the literature and text that are contained in its glossy annual reports and beyond the words of recommendation that are contained in the analysts’ reports. It is often said that to understand a company’s business, it is best to go to the main site of business of the company to take a look. But often, it is...

SINGAPORE STOCKS INVESTING: THE FIFTH ELEMENT

Singapore stocks head north in these trading sessions. However, I believe that Singapore stocks will have to head south when the Federal Reserves next meet to set the rates and to decide whether to taper the Quantitative Easing move of US $85 billion monthly bonds-buying. As I have shared with readers before, there are four elements shaping the global stock markets currently: (1) US decision of strike against Syria, (2) US debt ceiling talks, (3) Federal Reserves’ decision on tapering of the Quantitative Easing and (4) Germany’s election. Any of the four above elements will shape the direction of...

SINGAPORE STOCKS UPDATES

I have been reading analysts’ commentaries or analysis pieces regarding the direction that the Singapore Stocks Markets will take. On one camp, I read that some analysts pointed out that the US Federal Reserves will not scale back on the Quantitative Easing (QE) yet as the US economic data still point to an economy that needs the Federal Reserves’ US$85 million bonds buying stimulus. On the other camp, I read that some analysts are saying it is not a matter of when the scaling back of the QE moves will take place but a matter of how much the...

BIOSENSOR STOCKS

This is an update on Biosensors Stock: Management has been buying up Biosensors stocks while Biosensors stocks reach the current low price level at around $0.84; this is around 30% discount to the $1.20 prices that Biosensors stock has been trading before the stock heads south. Biosensors’ products are in stents and other cardiac devices with its key market in US, Japan and China. The company has not been doing well in stock prices though I believe that the company will still look for Mergers & Acquisitions targets as it has an excellent cash flow. Can you guess how...

SYNEAR FOOD STOCK

SYNEAR FOOD stock is on the way to delisting from the Singapore Stocks Exchange. The shareholders of Synear Food stock will be offered an exit cash offer of $0.186 per Synear food stock and this translates to 40% of the Price-to-Book ratio. Although retail investors may object to the exit offer price, 95% of the shareholders have voted for the exit cash offer and hence the delisting process is on the way for Synear Food stock. At $0.186, the exit cash offer price is around one-third of Synear Food’s IPO price of $0.54 in year 2006. A year after...

TO TRADE OR INVEST: THAT IS THE QUESTION

I know many investors understand what I am saying when I mention “The 8th Wonder of the World” in Investment parlance. I know since the days that we have the 7 wonders of the World, there are many new “Wonders” of the world coming aboard but what I am referring to as the “8th Wonder of the World” is that wonder proclaimed by Albert Einstein which is “Compound Interest”. For investors with a long term strategy on investing, a small sum of monies invested regularly and compounded by a good fixed rate of return will do wonders to your...

How will Singapore Stocks perform?

Singapore Stocks head north in the trading sessions today, contrary to what I have believed. Watching the news before the trading sessions commenced this morning on how the US has garnered more support for its planned strike against Syria, I was thinking that perhaps investors would prefer to exit the market with the prospects of a strike drawing closer. Instead our local stock markets headed north instead. There may be some other factors behind today’s rise in stock prices, but I believe it is getting quite difficult to even guess how the stock markets will perform, especially when we...

SINGAPORE REITS: WHEN TO INVEST?

After hints of US Federal Reserves scaling back the Quantitative Easing (QE) stimulus measures, Singapore REITs have headed south, in general. To some investors, Singapore REITS are now pretty attractive in terms of valuation. So, how attractive are these? To answer this question, we have to look at the different categories of Singapore REITS and compare their price-to-book or more commonly known as the PB ratios as the PB ratio is often a good indicator of how undervalued a stock can be. According to an investment analyst report, currently, we have for the Singapore Reits the following PB ratios:...

STOCKS PROFITS FROM SYRIA PANIC?

The global stock markets have their focus trained on the US President, Barrack Obama’s decision on Syria. Any hints of a strike against Syria will send stocks heading south while if a full-fledged strike against Syria is to really pan out, stock markets will go more south. And this event is just one of the few other events which will have a bearing on stocks; the others being the Federal Reserves’ decision on the Quantitative Easing, the US debt ceiling debate and the Germany Election. However, right now, what is in the minds of investors is Syria. I know...

NOBLE GROUP STOCK: INTERVIEW WITH YUSUF ALIREZA

I have been a long-term shareholder of Noble Group stock and with Noble Group stock price headed to a low level of $0.79 just two weeks ago, of course, I feel quite disappointed as my buying price is more than $1. However, with a long-term position of this stock, I will not be just selling off all the stocks of Noble Group that I have; rather I am thinking at what price Noble Group stock price may rebound with all the macro economic factors coming into play. Hence I feel it welcoming to read the interview piece with Noble...

THE RESPONSIBILITY OF INVESTMENT BLOGGERS

Arising from the China Minzhong’s short selling incident, one respectable investment blogger whose blog I have frequented occassionally, expressed apologies if through his blog, he has led some investors to buy the stocks of China Minzhong. I could sense that the blogger is quite apologetic but as a reader of his blog and his blog posts on China Minzhong, I could tell that there is no real coaxing on the blogger’s part for others to join him in buying China Minzhong stock. Also, what the blogger has shared are just his opinions and observations of the stock. To be...

SHORT SELLERS TARGETING SINGAPORE STOCKS

China Minzhong stock, the embattled S-chip stock whose share price headed almost 50% south after a report (by short seller Gloucester Research) made an announcement yesterday that the short seller has not understood China Minzhong’s business well and that the company would release a detailed report soon to reassure that its fundamentals are okay. I wonder why China Minzhong needs to take so long to respond to the report as China Minzhong’s business fundamentals should be on the back of the management’s mind and the company should be able to easily retrieve figures to refute the short seller’s claim...

GOLDEN AGRICULTURE STOCK

Being a regular investor of GOLDEN AGRICULTURE STOCK, I think it is timely to share with readers my thinking about this stock. Ever since touching the low price of $0.485, Golden Agriculture stock has rebounded in price and is currently trading in the range of 53 cents to 55 cents. A good stimulus for the stock has been the export tax cost reduction of crude palm oil which has then sent the price of the stock by around 7% up, but profits-takers have since then sent the stock price down again to 53 cents to 55 cents. A look...

CHINA MINZHONG EFFECT ON S-CHIPS STOCKS

CHINA MINZHONG stock headed south by about 50% after the short selling report but CHINA MINZHONG is not only the stock that faces the effects of the report, some S-chips stocks here also experienced similar effects. Sino Grandness, a food stock which is similar to China Minzhong, with businesses based in China, also faces pressure as its stock price heads south. I was quite surprised reading an analyst report that goes as far to the extent that the analyst firm will cease coverage on S-chip stocks altogether as the analyst argued to the point that even if a S-chip...
