StarHub share price trashed to 14-year low

Email notification StarHub CEO, Peter Kaliaropoulos must be feeling the heat again. On 18 February 2019, StarHub share price plunged to a 14-year low of $1.61. The last time that StarHub share price was trading at such disgraceful level was in 2005. The trigger for the massive sell-offs was obviously the dismal Q4FY2018. Following the announcement, investors wasted no time in punishing this counter, sending StarHub share price to rock bottom. It seems that honeymoon period is over for the StarHub CEO.

Singtel share price in for terrifying ride

Email notification What a perfect storm for Singtel share price. Singtel share price is set to face reality once more as the telco announced a set of disastrous Q3FY2019 financial results which saw most business units reporting declining profits. Net profit declined 14% to $823 million due to increased competition in India. In my last article on Singtel share price, I predicted that this counter would enter 2019 in bad shape. Indeed, Singtel share price plunged to $2.86 on 3 January 2019 and only recently recovered to the $3.00 level. However, the recent financial results would likely roil Singtel...

mm2 share price in song and dance with Temasek Holdings

Email notification Has mm2 share price lost its magic? Like many homegrown listed companies, mm2 share price suffered from unjustified poor valuations in recent years despite clocking in decent business performances. Perhaps it is a case of being listed in the wrong place and wrong time, resulting in mm2 share price being grossly misunderstood by many investors. It also doesn’t help that most Singaporean investors tend to invest in dividend stocks or REITs, leading to the pervasive lack of interest in growth stocks like mm2. As a Singaporean, I am always supportive of homegrown companies, especially the small and...

SIAEC share price in bloodbath with Temasek Holdings

Email notification The sky is falling for SIA Engineering Company as SIAEC share price crashed to $2.21, a 10-year low on 26 December 2018. The correction of SIAEC share price could be due to market anticipation of a set of poor third quarter FY2018/19 results. Following the release of the results, SIAEC share price recovered to the $2.50 bandwidth but started falling again in early 2019. On the basis of the recent volatility, I smell blood for SIAEC share price and investors should brace themselves for a roller-coaster ride. Investing in SIAEC is not fun. If investors look back,...

Singapore finance blogs and the story of the three thirsty monks

Yet another Singapore finance blog bites the dust. SG Young Investment is the latest local finance blogger to take a hiatus. This followed hot on heels the announcements from 15HWW and  Cheerful Egg, who are taking a long break from blogging. Whenever such depressing news surfaced, I am always affected emotionally, spiritually and mentally. This is because when you have people leaving the scene, it is never a good thing. How can we build a vibrant ecosystem when you have players exiting one by one? And we are talking about good players, not mediocre ones. Although the exodus of...

Asian Pay TV Trust unit price left Temasek Holdings red faced

Email notification What an absolute nightmare it is for investors. The disastrous collapse of Asian Pay TV Trust unit price is something that I have never seen for a business trust.

In fact, investors never had a good sleep with this counter as APTT unit price never exceed the IPO price level after its much-hyped listing....

Email notification On 24 January 2019, it was reported that Microsoft’s search engine, Bing, was temporary inaccessible. There were market speculations that Bing might have been blocked by China’s Great Firewall, presumably due to the strict Chinese authorities censorship over online content. The latest development came after Google’s exit in 2010 and blockage of other US social media such as Facebook and Twitter. The ban of foreign search engines gave Baidu the golden opportunity to further entrench its market leadership in the China’ search engine space. But will Baidu share price continue to bask in the blaze of glory?...

Does inheritance property attract ABSD?

Many people view inheritance property as a windfall. In my point of view, this may not necessary be true. When crafting a will, you have to put in thoughts and make the effort to consider important areas like applicable taxes ABSD (Additional Buyer Stamp Duty) and SSD (Seller Stamp Duty). Otherwise, you may end up causing more harm than good to your beneficiaries. Recently, a member wrote in to enquire about the applicable taxes on inheritance property. I thought they were very good questions because he had raised concerns on areas that I have never considered before. So, I...

UOB share price flying again

Email notification UOB Chairman Emeritus Wee Cho Yaw is certainly larger than life. At the age of 16, I had a brief encounter with him when I received a school award from the banking legend (Mr Wee is an old boy of Chung Cheng High School (Main)). Back then, he was already very well-known, and I was totally overwhelmed by his aura. Indeed, Wee Cho Yaw is synonymous with UOB, the third largest Singapore bank. For the longest time, UOB share price has been running neck-and-neck with DBS share price. Like DBS and OCBC, UOB share price had a...
