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 years. But what wasn’t so obvious was that NO one seemed to talk about this company. We tried to locate analyst reports with the help of our brokers but to our dismay,...

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, Silverlake Axis) somewhat made up for it Time to get out? I’m done with speculating on this stock for now. For the uninitiated, allow me to give...

Charter Hall Long WALE REIT Case Study – Low Dividend Yield, Long WALE and build in Organic Growth

Singaporeans have a good number of REITs for them to select from, when they look for dividend yield and share price appreciation. These REITs are split into different categories and have their own characteristic, dividend spread over the risk free rates and react differently to the demand and supply of their own categories. (You can take a look at the REITs, their prevailing prices and certain metrics at my Dividend Stock Tracker) Australia, together with Japan, are two very large and liquid REIT markets. They tend to have a smaller spread between risk free rates and REIT’s dividend yield....

Exeggcute?

Greetings! You must be wondering where Mr. IPO has gone to … Is he busy catching Pokemons and neglecting this retirement blog?!? Well… I have been living in a suitcase for the last few months, round the world for work and not for catching Mr. Mime unfortunately… And this is likely to continue for the foreseeable future… Sigh The Pokemon eggs is probably an apt picture. It symbolize the state of our IPO market, it symbolize how the bond markets here has “crashed”, thereby affecting some of the prices of my bond holdings, it also symbolize that I should be...

Are these two stocks the Best stocks?

Two Singapore’s listed companies appeared in Forbes Asia magazine Best under the Billion (in terms of market cap) companies. The two companies are MM2 Asia and Riverstone Holdings.

What you must know about the data center industry before you invest

Where do you think your Pokémon, Pokéballs and user data in Pokémon Go are stored? In your phone? No. It’s in data centers. In my earlier article about investing overseas, I mentioned about whole industries that are non-existent in Singapore’s markets. The recent IPO of Keppel DC REIT changed that a little – it added a new sector to the REIT industry in Singapore: data centers. We’re all used to the usual few types of REITs in Singapore: retail, industrial, logistics, office, healthcare, and hospitality. It’s a large market for Singapore; in fact, Singapore’s REIT market is the third...
