Dear readers, Snap Inc, the company behind Snapchat saw its stock (NYSE: SNAP) headed south by 14.09% on Friday 11 Aug 2017 to reach a close of USD 11.83. Compare this price with its IPO price of USD 17 and we can see that this current price is really a 30% discount off its IPO price. SNAP even traded at a high of around USD 27 before. I could still remember reading that there was some kind of excitement over this tech stock when it debut on IPO but now we know that this IPO might have really snapped if its price does not go back north.

Dear readers, as you may have probably know the global stocks markets are currently under pressure and trending lower on the back of the heightened tensions between America and North Korea with both sides exchanging languages at one another. North Korea has even detailed a possible strike plan towards Guam and US President Donald Trump has also responded in a language which some said may be understood by North Korea but also one which others say may aggravate the current situation.

Singapore stocks
Dear readers, Mr Emmanuel Macron has become the French President, at least the factor of a Le Pen victory has not materialized into the global stocks markets. With Mr Macron’s win, what does it mean for the Singapore stocks markets? What does it mean for global stocks markets as a whole? Also, the geo-political tensions in the Korean Peninsula seems to simmer for now. On the back of all these, does it mean that Singapore stock markets will continue to sustain its upward momentum?

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.

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.

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.

Donald Trump becomes President Today, what should investors DO NOW?

US President-Elect Donald Trump will be inaugurated officially as the President of the United States later today United States time. The position of the US President is always thought to be the position of the most powerful person on earth. Inevitably so. And we have read and heard of President Trump’s views on China, TPP, Climate change and NATO. Some of Trump’s views seem strong. The question is whether these will translate into formal US positions? And if so, what are the larger implications to global economies and to global stocks markets?

Is this the BEST TRUMP card for All Investors?

Ever since Donald Trump became the Elected President of the United States of America, many have tried to decode the Trump card, literally meaning the plans of Donald Trump and his team for the world as well as figuratively meaning how investors could position their investments for the best returns in a global economy with Donald Trump helming the largest economy in the world.

Stocks Markets “CRASH” is COMING?

These days, it has been reported that US stocks markets are at historical high, investors are bullish etc. When I read these kinds of headlines, I would know that it is probably time to sell since markets would be probably overvalued. On balance, there are also more and more people from the financial community giving their take on why a financial stocks markets crash is imminent for the global financial markets. If you have not been reading these on the internet, below are just some of the headlines which I have been reading from my internet surfing:

Buying Singapore stocks now?

I have shared with readers in my previous posts that a Hillary Clinton’s win (when the informal polls was showing that she was winning Donald Trump by a good margin) should not be assumed. Indeed, the email scandal have shrunk the margin between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump at the informal polls. Further, the email scandals have more or less shaped the US markets’ performance in the previous week since that there is a likelihood that Donald Trump would win.

What All Investors should do now?

Dear readers, as you should have know by now, the Singapore stocks are trading without much of a clue, most of the attention these days are focused on the latest quarterly earnings of the Singapore companies, and from what we are reading so far from those companies which have released their earnings results, there are not much good profitable announcements, aren’t they? Instead, there have been announcements by many companies on how they intend to restructure costs amidst the less than stellar economies.

Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton: what it means for the global stocks markets?

If there is one global event which investors are looking forward, for clues on where the global stocks markets will head, it has to be the US Presidential Election which has reached the final stages where Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are making their final pitches to woo more voters.

What investors need to know?

I have been saying that Singapore stocks markets is a price-taker whereas the larger overseas markets especially the US markets are the price-makers, shaping the Singapore stocks markets. For clues on how the local markets will perform for a given day, just take a look at the performance of the overseas US markets. Local investors are always looking for clues of how the local stocks markets will perform next, hence it is useful to note how US markets have been doing.

Investors should be entrepreneurs too

I have shared that Singapore investors must be enterprising in the context of trading when it comes to investing in one of my earlier posts. However, I must always share with readers that enterprising is also that mentality to think like a business owner. This is the most fitting since as an investor, we are the owner of the listed companies in a way, regardless how small your shareholding in the company could be.

BREXIT: what are the implications to investors?

So, Brexit has been confirmed. Britain has voted to exit the European Union and the news all over the world is talking about the implications of Brexit. The stocks markets were the fast to respond to the Brexit and the immediate southing of the various stock indices while not small are in my personal opinion, not as large as widely expected indeed. However, does it mean that investors can now head in and buy some good stocks now trading cheaply. Well, if only it were that easy. The effects of Brexit as many analysts have said would be long-lasting.

Britain has voted and the counting of polls is underway. The British votes on the European Union membership: to stay within EU or not will have an effect on Asian stocks markets first once the results are announced later in the day. As I learnt from the TV news yesterdays, major financial and stocks markets are making preparation should the result be a “Brexit”. Today will be a day closely watched by all global investors as definitely, the scale of the effect of the Brexit is significant on the stocks markets.

Is a global stocks recession coming?

I read reports that China stocks plunged again today as investors saw hope of a strong economic recovery fade. As compared to the previous financial crisis, this time round, there is more attention drawn to China as China’s economy now has a larger bearing on the global stocks markets than before, as the world noted in the January 2016 global stocks retreat.
