Which bank will benefit the most from a rise in SIBOR?

A wrong move made!And another wrong move!Its so hard to find good investment opportunities these days. Anyway, with all the talk about how interest rates are so low now and the only way forward is for it to move up gradually, let us try to position ourselves for this expectation shall we? SIBOR stands for Singapore Interbank Offer Rate – simply put,interest rates for deposits,loan e.t.c rise if SIBOR rises. NIM stands for Net Interest Margin which is measure of the difference between the interest income generated by banks or other financial institutions and the amount of interest paid out to...

A Little Spare Cash, Unattractive Stock Valuations, Low interest Rates. What to do?

September went by without any correction in the stock market. Boring!Hopefully October gets more interesting. We recently sold the Taisin shares we bought on 7 September 2010 and lock in a gain of about 22% in 1 month. The run up in it’s share price on 5th and 6th of October was unexpected and we decided to sell it instead of being too greedy.We don’t know why it went up, but who cares…seriously as long as money is made. We still like the company due to it being shareholder oriented BUT their recent offer of a scrip dividend scheme,...

The Small Caps Stock Adventure

No investment has been done since the beginning of 2010 till today 7 September 2010. Stocks, especially blue chips ones, have been running up like crazy. We missed an opportunity last week to load some more Singpost due to trying to gain a 0.01 cent advantage…damn it! See how far it rose from $1.13 to $1.23 within 1 week!!!Arrgh. I spotted the aggressive quantity of share buybacks of Singpost, whenever it touches $1.12 or $1.13 and therefore entered with CONVICTION but missed just cos i queued at $1.12.”%%$#*@&@^!%@#$@%@”. But its alright..hehe..another one will come as always and i have...

Keeping an Open Mind to Opportunities

Talking to some people can be really exasperating. When one explains a sure-win strategy to make money to them with absolutely zero risk and no commission earned whatsoever, they will first ask, sure or not. They will then close their minds and the idea is dismissed. To be fair, i agree that when things are too good to be true, they probably are, BUT , i still stick to the philosophy that NOTHING OR NO IDEA should be dismissed without exploring or investigating first. Taking a phrase from the bible( Dont mistake me for a holy cow cos i...

Playing It Safe.Growing it Slowly But Surely With a Peace of Mind.

Ok yeah we haven’t been updating for soooo long but well…we needed a break. Anyway the meteoric rise of the stock market makes us sick in the belly as we just didnt have any bullets left to pump in. Haizz…just spraying some water guns here and there..pathetic!!!!!Well guess there is a season for everything and we should be thankful. Anyway, now we have got some money and October does seem to be a potential month where stocks are likely to go down after the euphoria. Why do we say this? Looking at the Baltic Dry Index which according to...

Stock Market Manipulation – US Markets and elsewhere

Retail brokerage customers generally never learn that they paid money for something that failed to be delivered to their accounts. That is because retail customers’ brokerage account statements do not reveal whether delivery takes place; even when no shares are delivered at settlement, share entitlements are still credited to the buyer’s account. Those credited share entitlements then trade in the market as if they were real shares issued by the company. – WorldAffairsJournal Regulation (Spring 2008) Huh? What’s the above about? It’s about the practice of selling shares without owning any shares, also called “Naked Shorting” and then failing...

Fundamental Analysis is Useless without Integrity

Somebody once said that in looking for people to hire, you look for three qualities: integrity, intelligence, and energy. And if they don’t have the first, the other two will kill you. You think about it; it’s true. If you hire somebody without the First, you really want them to be dumb and lazy., -Warren Buffett One thing good about this crisis is that it gives people a chance to learn things. Having received that mass circulated email as published in the previous article, we just decided to take a look at a randomly chosen certain textile S- share...

Confessions of An S-Chip CEO – Is this true or someone wants to short something?

[Email circulation received by SGDividends] We are victims as well!!! Let me tell you the story. By the time you read this article, it would have reached hundreds of investors, bankers, regulators and journalists. My purpose was to shed some light on the “dark sides” of the business of S-Chips (Chinese companies listed on Singapore Stock Exchange), so as to help prevent more financial losses in the future hurting the ordinary people on thestreet. From this angle, I wish to redeem myself somewhat……… It all started some 6-7 years ago. My colleagues and I were just a few of...

Regarding the Recent Bull Rally – Irritated SGDividends

We are very irritated by CNBC and the presenter whose name is something Cutlow or Cudloh or Cartlow. He keeps talking up the market and sometimes we really wish to stuff his mouth with some spicy chicken drumstick but it will be a waste of money.

Anyway, we really don’t know and your guess are as good as ours. It’s just eye popping to know that Goldman Sachs has issued...
