IS IT TIME TO BUY THIS OVERSOLD BILLION-CAPS STOCK NOW?


Keppel Corp stockOn 20 Apr 2017, Keppel Corporation reported a 23.7% increase in first-quarter earnings and a net profit of $260.4 million for the first quarter of this year. However offshore and marine division continued to be a drag on the company’s revenue as the revenue slide 28.4% to $1.25 billion. Before the earnings result, Keppel Corp stock already declined 2.6% and further declined by 1.4% on the date of the Group’s earnings on a doji.

ONE OVERSOLD SINGAPORE STOCK WITH A POSSIBLE 59% UPSIDE

Singapore Stocks
Once trading at $1.06 per share in Feb 2017, just two months ago, Japfa Limited stock is currently trading at $0.63, a 37% down from this high in Feb 2017. Japfa is involved in the animal protein business. Japfa stock is currently oversold and the trend sets to be south for the stock with the stock price already below its 200-days moving average. What’s more, the stock went south by some 6.7% on 21 Apr 2017 and the RSI is already in oversold territory.

WILL YOU BUY TWO OVERSOLD ONCE “SEXY” STOCKS?

Singapore stocks
There are two penny stocks which are oversold in terms of RSI. These are penny stocks which were quite “sexy” before due to the possible growth story. The first of these stocks is QT Vascular, a bio-technology stock which aim for some good innovation in the medical industry. I bought QT Vascular stock before and sold it for some profits and did not look at the stock again until today where I saw that the stock price of this stock is $0.03 per share. For some perspective, a year ago, QT Vascular traded at around $0.107 share, hence the current price is almost one-third of the price a year ago.

ONE THING I DISCOVER ABOUT AGMS

AGMsDear readers, this is AGMs season. With many of the AGMS being held on weekdays, I believe investors interested in attending an AGM of a particular company would need to apply for their leaves in order to attend. These few days, I have been receiving so many A4-sized envelopes containing the traditional hardcopy annual reports. I have also been receiving smaller-size plastic covers containing CD-ROMs of annual reports. I have also been indicating on my calendar the venue and time of the AGMs so that I could plan my schedule should I wish to attend a particular AGM.

ONE SINGAPORE STOCK WHICH YOU MIGHT WANT TO KNOW

Singapore Stocks
Yesterday, the top 20 volume stocks were again dominated by penny stocks. However, unlike the previous trading session, this time, the top volume stocks made some gains. Singapore stocks markets could however be described as choppy. In this kind of stocks markets environment, investors might want to invest in a stock which has a larger margin of “safety” (in terms of capital preservation).

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT SINGAPORE’S STOCKS?

Singapore stocksDear readers, do you know that Singapore stocks command the highest dividends yields among Asian stocks? In this environment of increasing interest rate, how should one plan his investing strategy especially in dividends stocks?

WILL THIS STOCK BE A SUPER MULTIBAGGER?

singapore stocks
Dear readers, I think you will agree with me that when an investor buys a stock, it is always with the wish and expectation of capital appreciation. And when the CEO of the listed company buys his own stocks, then it is always a sign to investors in general that the CEO is confident of his own company business and that it is a good sign. And if a CEO repeatedly buys stocks of his own company, I will think that is a very good sign indeed.

AOXIN Q&M DENTAL IPO

AOXIN Q&M DENTAL GROUP IPO
AOXIN Q&M DENTAL GROUP IPO is the latest IPO for investors here as it was announced that the group would be launching an IPO yesterday. AOXIN Q&M is a dental business in China and evident from its name, it is a business which was spun off from listed entity Q&M. AOXIN Q&M Dental is offering 57 million placement shares at $0.20 per share and I understand that these are available for application to both retail and institutional investors who apply through their brokers or financial institutions.

THIS STOCK WILL BE A 1000% MULTI-BAGGER

Singapore stocks
Every investor seeks to invest in a stock which will become a multi-bagger. A multi-bagger stock is a stock which appreciates in price multi-fold than the price the investor pays for.

There is a stock which will become a ten-times multi-bagger and I said this with absolute certainty. The price of the stock will increase by ten times. However the mechanism to which the stock will appreciate in price by ten times would not be due to investors buying and pushing the stock higher by ten times. It would be via another mechanism.

THREE BILLION-CAP STOCKS AT 50% DISCOUNT

Singapore stocksThere are currently three Singapore stocks, each with a market capitalization of more than $1 billion which are trading at less than 50% Price-to-Book ratio.

Noble Group stock currently trades at 0.42 Price-to-Book. OUE stock currently trades at 0.46 Price-to-Book while Wing Tai Holding currently also trades at 0.46 Price-to-Book too. Of these three stocks, Wing Tai pays a dividends of 1.58%, OUE pays a dividends of 1.46%. Noble which had in the past paid dividend did not do so last year (year 2016).

SINGTEL, STARHUB, M1 STOCK: AN UPDATE

Singtel stock, M1 stock, Starhub stock
It has been some time since we visit the three local telco stocks. In an environment marked by a fourth telco, how are the three telco stocks performing now?

Since M1 stock price broke below its 200-Day Moving Average in Sep 2016, its stock price has been on a decline. It since hit a support of $1.92 and rebounded off this support to close at $2.13 on 13 Apr 2017.

What investors need to know about the US stocks markets NOW?

More than anything else, the current global stocks markets are shaped by geo-political tensions. At this time of writing, North Korea has just tested its missile which failed and US Vice President is making his way for his visit to South Korea. What should investors know about the US stocks markets now? I shared a video below which could be useful reference for investors.

Two Billion- Cap undervalued, high-dividends Singapore Stocks

Singapore stocks
Amidst all the geo-political tensions in the world arising from the US and North Korea confrontation, global stocks markets, including Singapore’s are getting jittery. Some investors fled the markets, some investors rather hold their monies for now, all just to have clarity on the current state of geo-political tensions as well as how the French Elections will pan out. Other investors who aim to invest in all cycles of the economy might be looking at value in the stocks markets.

Random Musing from Tom K

I am an employee and I can identify the corporate rat race. Many have used the metaphor of a treadmill to exemplify the incessant pace of work. Basically most employees wake up early and work hours of overtime. The result is an imbalance of other aspects of life if one gets more of this rat race.

The only way to get out of the rat race is to be financially free via business and investments. A number of folks do enjoy being in a work they love and are decently rewarded though. Its great for them.

WHAT should investors KNOW NOW?

US stocks
Ever since the stocks markets rise to peaks for markets like the US, market watchers continue to see how the policies of Donald Trump will continue to benefit stocks markets. I must said previously, the radar is on Trump's economic policies, US-China trade relationships and the interest rate decision of the US Federal Reserves. Now the focus seems to be geo-political. First was the tension over North Korea's testing of its missle; then the US' strike on Syria seems to throw a bunch of new geopolitical considerations on the stock markets.

A SYSTEMATIC APPROACH TO WEALTH CREATION

wealth creation
I was reading a book when I encountered the concept of “System” once again. I am always so familiar with Systems and Processes and was so adapt in it during university days, always scoring well in subjects involving intricate processes and systems. But more importantly, after university, I continue to believe that the concept of “Systems” need not be confined to what was taught in my university days, “Systems” theory is applicable to our everyday lives and in relation to the theme of this blog, I would like to pro-offer what a System of wealth creation looks like.

IS A STOCKS MARKET CRASH COMING?

There are two camps for the direction which stocks market can go. One camp said that the global stocks markets will go north. I have read of a local hedge fund manager’s prediction that the STI would even head to 4,000 in year 2017. Then there is the other camp which said that stocks markets would crash soon. I have found a video below of the latter camp for sharing:


Will this stock RALLY FURTHER?


Moya Asia stock
Moya Asia stock dominated the top volume stocks of SGX yesterday with an equally impressive gain of 9.6% upside today. I have earlier shared about this stock in an earlier post here . I have said that over a longer term, Moya Asia stock should continue to do well. I am still of this view holding a stake on this stock at a previous price.

HOW TO EXIT FROM THE FINANCIAL RAT RACE?

Wealth Creation
Many of us are employees with the main source of income being our employment income. This income is needed to support our living and it is the savings from our income, that is the portion of our incomes minus away all the expenditures which we could put together and decide what to do away with it.

Most of us save what we have left minus all the expenses and experts always advised us that savings are subject to the effect of inflation such that the monies we have left in banks (which earn very little interest rate) are not so much after some time due to inflation. We are always encouraged to invest but some choose the wrong investments, lose capital and end up worse that what he or she could be if he had just saved and not dabbled in investments.

THREE WAYS TO SUSTAIN WEALTH

Wealth creation
I have been working hard at work and I am still considered a good employee, a good worker though I might not be the most perfect. These days, I have been grappling hard with a heavy workload and this workload would be increasing in breadth and depth over time. Hence I would be spending more time at work understanding more about the company’s business more in-depth. Being a man who is from an analytical background, I have not much of a problem in understanding and doing things revolved around KPIs, timelines (this sounds like a portion of a CV to be given to a potential employer), that is anything systematic; but the more difficult parts of a job is to deal with human issues, politics, and so on and so forth.

OSIM STOCK & V3 STOCK

Osim stock
Osim stock, which was delisted from Singapore Stocks Exchange would be seeking a listing on the Hong Kong stocks markets as V3 stock. This is of interest to me since when Osim was delisted from Singapore stocks markets, I have thought that Osim would be kept as a private entity. I understand that proceeds from the V3 IPO would be used to repay a loan of $321.9 million obtained by Osim as well as for the acquisition in Futuristic, a Singapore-based store fixtures manufacturer, of a 69% stake.

TRUMP EFFECT on GLOBAL STOCKS

Trump, Stocks
I was like the world eager to know how the first meeting of US President Donald Trump with the Chinese President Xi Jin Ping would be like yesterday but the meeting was eclipsed by the sudden US strike on Syrian government targets. As we know, the strike was a response to the attack on civilians in Syria. The strikes definitely have an effect on the global stocks markets, not less than how the stocks markets make sense of the meeting between the two Presidents. The effect is on a longer-term basis as I believe many see the US response on Syria as a barometer of the extent to how US would engage North Korea. Also, there are some geopolitical tensions in the South China Sea from time to time.

Are these SMALL-CAP PLAYS still in PLAY?

Small cap stocks
I watched the “Moneyweek” episode of Channel 8 on 5 Apr 2017. The episode featured the business growth story of Myanmar and shared how Singapore businesses fare in Myanmar in their business development there as well as the businessmen’s sentiments of doing business there. This episode was a very good take-away to me of the updates of the Myanmar growth story in a half-hour documentary.

Of GOLD and a US stock I love

I am sharing the video below as it contains some good analysis of gold. Recall some investors are interested in gold as some people come to doubt whether the stocks markets will still benefit from the “Trump Effect”. Then there is another US stock called Nvidia stock, a technology stock which I am quite enamored of, but which I have not really come into investing in the stock. Enjoy the video below.

UnUsUaL IPO


UNUSUAL STOCK IPO
UnUsUalL IPO will be the next Singapore IPO for retail and institutional investors. MM2 Asia announced on 4 April 2017 that it would launch the IPO shares of its unit UnUsUaL. Some 97 million shares at $0.20 per share would be placed.

I believe UnUsUaL IPO will be the next keen IPO for Singapore retail investors right after Kimly IPO. This is because of the success of MM2 as a stock which has seen quite a good capital appreciation performance. Investors will likely deem that there is similar potential of capital appreciation if they own the stock of a unit of MM2 Asia.

TOM K’s GRAND SINGAPORE STOCK INVESTMENT REVEALED

SINGAPORE STOCKS
Yesterday, when I shared with readers that I would be going in to the Singapore stocks markets to make one grand investment for the year in a small-cap stock (you can read the post here if you have not), little did I know my investment in the league of a five-figure sum will shake up the small-cap stock in the local stocks markets. Right after my investment first thing in the morning of 5 Apr 2017, a large volume of buyers flocked in and the buying continued such that the stock made the top 20 volume as well as the one of the top gainer stocks in the stocks markets for 5 Apr 2017. You could have deduce what stock I bought from the aforementioned description alone.

ITS STOCKS AGM TIME


AGMs
I have been receiving a number of annual reports of listed companies whose stocks I own in my mailbox. With the trend of digitalization, most of these reports are now given to me in CD format neatly placed in a hardcover. I have to say that I still like hard copies of annual reports as it makes for easier reads and the tactile touch of reading, perusing or even sniffing at the “crispy” reports seems to remind me of the tie that I have with the listed company, in the sense that I am a shareholder of the company. For CD-ROM versions of the annual reports, although it is environmentally-friendly, I never get pass to the stage of inserting the CD-ROM into the CD-ROM tray and reading it, probably as accessing the same softcopy annual report on the listed company’s website is probably much faster.

SHARING OF BLUE-CHIP STOCK BY TOP ANALYST

This is the sharing of a blue-chip stock by a top analyst. The name of the stock is Capitaland Limited stock. In my earlier post, I have mentioned that Capitaland stock is one of the Best performers for the quarter of the year; you can refer to the post here. Now, let us see what the analyst has to say about this stock:

FIRST BIG SINGAPORE STOCK INVESTMENT FOR YEAR 2017

Singapore stocks investment
So far this year, I have been using capital freed up from my investments in Year 2016 to enter into new investing positions for the year. Hence, I have not committed new funds into my new stock portfolio. However, after looking into how Singapore Stocks markets have performed this year, I have decided to make one Big Singapore stock investment for Year 2017 into a small-cap stock. The amount that I am going to enter into this small-cap stock will be a five-figure amount. And since this Singapore stock is not paying dividends, I am not looking into passive income strategy from this Singapore stock. It will be a capital appreciation strategy for a long-time horizon. And I have absolute belief that this stock will be the next multi-bagger stock so much so that I am aiming to achieve a six-figure portfolio from just this stock alone.

TIME TO SAVE MORE MONIES


Savings
As a person who lunches on all weekdays at work, I could tell that inflation is in with the prices of food that I am paying. The norm some years ago was like $3 a lunch but nowadays, the norm for a meal out during office could be minimally $4 and it would be more if one buys a drink to accompany the meal.

Inflation seems to be getting more evident though recently through firstly, an increase in town and conservancy charges (the town council fees in simpler terms); then we have the 30% increase in water fees which personally I feel is a lot for a one-time increase. And it was only on 1 Apr 2017 that I learnt of the increase in electricity tariffs next.

TOM K and HIS US STOCKS

This might not be the most appropriate place to discuss about this topic: Tom K (that is my) US stocks. For this is Singapore Stocks Investing, a blog which should discuss about Singapore stocks. But I feel that my discussion on stocks and equities is not complete if I do not tell readers what my investing is all about and has been. For while I have been blogging here on Singapore Stocks Investing, sharing with readers my experience and insights on Singapore stocks; there is this side of me which is into US stocks. You see, my complete investment portfolio is not composed entirely of Singapore stocks but US stocks as well.

SINGAPORE STOCKS MARKETS: WHAT’S NEXT?

Singapore stocks
I have been looking at the Singapore stocks markets, analyzing the state of the markets and I found that the current Singapore stocks markets is one where it is dominated by penny stocks. Just look at the top 20 volume Singapore stocks daily to validate what I have just said. To be more accurate, the penny stocks which have been ruling the roost belong to those types of mining stocks like Alliance Minerals stock (which have become a multi-bagger from less than 10 cents to the current 30 over cents) to stocks like BlackGoldNatural and more recently AsiaPhos. I do not know whether it is linked to the Trump effect where Trump focuses on more traditional forms of energy. Or could it be the case of smart monies coming into selected stocks plays on the Singapore stocks markets?

BACK TO BLOGGING!

I have not been blogging here on SINGAPORE STOCKS INVESTING for really quite sometime. My last published post here on this blog was dated 21 March 2017 and hence I have really “disappeared” from financial blogosphere for more than a week. So what has happened to Tom K during this period?

Well, health problems have stopped me from blogging. For the past week, I was really very not well so much so that I slept for most of two full days last week. Usually, I would look at financial and investment news from Singapore and overseas regularly for updates many times a day and I could not do that when I was not well last week. What I managed to do was to just glance quickly at the local and overseas stock prices of counters which I bought at the end of trading day.

KIMLY STOCK: WILL YOU BUY NOW?

Kimly stock
I was having my instant coffee as shared in my earlier post when I saw Kimly Group stock, as expected defied gravity and shot to an high of $0.55 from an IPO price of $0.25. At that instant, the coffee in my mouth also shot through too. Kimly Group stock finally closed a little lower at $0.44 per share though it was still a stellar 76% rally in IPO stock price.

THREE STOCKS INVESTORS MUST KNOW BEFORE SG MARKETS OPEN

Before the local Singapore stocks market opens on 20 Mar 2017, these are the two stocks which investors must know:

1) Kimly Group stock

Kimly Group stock is making a debut on the Singapore stocks markets. The coffee-shop operator stock is the first stock of such a nature to be listed on the local bourse. Kimly Group stock IPO is around 8.3 oversubscribed and this points to the strong demand as well as expectation that Kimly Group stock should have a stellar performance on its first day of trading when the local stocks markets open later. At an IPO price of $0.25, the question is how much Kimly Group stock will trade at a premium over this IPO price. But I would always like to think that the stocks markets is always more than investors’ expectations, thinking or speculation, thus I would still think that there is a possibility that Kimly Group stock may dip a little below its IPO price.

EZRA STOCK: BANKRUPTCY!


Ezra stockEZRA has filed for bankruptcy in the US states yesterday (19 Mar 2017). This was the latest development following the trading halt in Ezra share last Wednesday. I am not too familiar with how bankruptcy of local stocks in Singapore will proceed and more importantly whether there will be a possibility shareholders of Ezra stock would get back their capital or even some monies. It seems to me even more complex now since Ezra is a Singapore-listed stock but it has filed for bankruptcy in the United States, hence I do not know how this will all translate.
