SINGTEL STOCK: WILL YOU BUY IT NOW?

Singtel stock recently went to a low of around $3.70 in May 2017 ever since the support of $3.88 was broken. It seemed that Singtel stock managed to find support at $3.70 level as its stock price inched slowly up to close at $3.81 today. As an added boost of confidence, Singtel CEO, Ms Chua Sock Koong bought 355,740 Singtel shares on 1 June 2017. Should Singtel stock continue to retrace up, I believe the previous support of $3.88 is easily attainable. The consensus target price of Singtel on SGX website is $4.22, which implies a potential upside of...

WHICH STOCKS TO BE PRIVATISED NEXT?

The news that M1’s three largest shareholders are reviewing their stakes in M1 has led to speculation on the possible privatization of M1 stock. M1 stock responded in return, soaring some 7.9% on 17 Mar 2017 before the trading halt of the stock. It was reported that talks of potential divestment of listed Telco firms has come as early as last year as the major Telco players brace themselves for the fourth Telco player into the stocks markets. Singtel and Starhub stocks also benefitted from the speculation, with each rallying last Friday. I believe the stocks markets are in...

Is this stock rebounding next?

I last blogged about M1 stock in this blog post . M1 stock has since reached an intra-day low of $2.02 and on 1 Nov 2016, M1 stock rallied by a good 3.9% and yesterday, M1 stock closed at $2.10. This might lead to investors to wonder whether M1 stock is reversing from a bottom. From the technical point of view, the five-days-moving average of M1 stock is rising, the RSI is climbing out of the previously-oversold region; but pretty much it is to be seen whether this rebound of an oversold M1 is sustainable. We know that the...

Goodbye M1

I have been holding M1 for the longest time since 2008 for its good dividend payouts over the years. On 18th October 2016, M1 announced its 3Q2016 financial results. We can see how much the financials have deteriorated. Thus, I made the decision to divest M1 in my stock portfolio. A telco operator’s revenue is very much predictable based on its prepaid and postpaid revenue. Operating revenue, profit after tax and prepaid, postpaid revenue all fell for M1 over the quarters. Given the higher risks than benefits, below are few of the reasons I decided to divest M1. 1. Decreasing...

M1’s 3Q results: A stumble before the fall?

Maybank Kim Eng and UOB Kay Hian are keeping their “sell” calls on M1 Limited, further lowering their target prices from $2.04 to $1.90 and from $2 to $1.76 respectively – while CIMB maintains its “hold” recommendation on the stock with a lower price target of $2.55 from $2.80 previously. This comes after the mobile operator yesterday posted a hefty 23.4% decline in 3Q earnings, which came in below the expectations of all three research houses. Maybank analyst Gregory Yap says the biggest concern regarding M1’s 3Q financial results was its much sharper y-o-y fall of postpaid revenue of...

Is it time to sell off these stocks?

Investors’ favorite stocks have all along been defensive stocks which pay steady dividends. These are also stocks which provide everyday services. So what are these favorite stocks? Well, it has to be the three telco stocks: Singtel, StarHub and M1 stock. Looking at the stock chart of these three stocks, we can note that these three stocks have been recording highs such that a top has been formed for them. And we can also note that the three stocks have started to head south from their tops. Going forward, I think there is limited room for the three stocks...
