Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust FLT – Proactive Renewing Future Leases

Frasers Logistic and Industrial Trust (FLT) announced its maiden financial results after its listing this year. The REIT also declared a dividend per unit (DPU) of $0.0184 versus the IPO forecast of $0.0179. The results were inline, but in this article I want to see whether I can pick out anything that FLT does differently from the local REITs. I have to bear in mind that this is a very … [Read more...]

SK Bullion Experience (Part 1)

I have been a client of BullionStar for the past few years and I've always enjoyed my shopping experience with them.

SK Bullion is a subsidiary of the Soo Kee Group, which is a familiar jewelry shop in Singapore as well as a … [Read more...]

The price has been falling - After reaching the … [Read more...]

Company prospecting: Talkmed

(not vested) I have been crawling through medical companies, especially those offering direct services to patients. But have not go into those upstream, the manufacturers of medical equipments, products. One thing that struck me is the high lofty valuation of above 30 PE is more of norm than exception.

How we made 64.4% returns (so far) in this “boring” Hong Kong company that no one talks about…


About two years ago, in 2014, there was an opportunity for us. It was a rare investment opportunity that offered little downside risk and we could potentially earn 50-80% in profit in three years. What was obvious then too was that this company was paying its shareholders steady dividends since 2000 and we figured that the company was likely able to sustain the dividends for another ten … [Read more...]

Why I won’t buy the Fullerton Healthcare IPO


Apart from the fact that I have no money, that is. As Asia Pacific grows in both population and wealth, demand for quality healthcare is definitely going to increase.

Portfolio Update – Time to Cut Losses (T4B)


I've been holding onto this stuff for way too long. I could've sold everything off when prices hit upwards of 0.70, but I didn't. Could've, would've, should've - it's all water under the bridge. I took a gamble on the Garden Fresh IPO from Sino Grandness (T4B), and it's about time I liquidated my holdings. I would most definitely make a loss, but I am thankful that my other trades (thank you, … [Read more...]
