What I am doing in the Singapore stocks markets now?

Dear reader, do you know what makes a good investor? Apart from good investing and trading skills, a good investor knows what stocks to buy, when to buy the stocks, how to buy the stocks. But do you know a good investor is also one who knows when not to buy the stocks he wants to buy?

Is it a good time to buy this stock?

Noble Group CEO has resigned from the company, as was announced today. Along with this announcement was another announcement that the company is selling an US energy stake. Noble Group stock price went south by 8.2% today similar to what we noted for Singpost stock when its CEO resigned from the post and this I believed has to do with investors thinking that while the sale of the subsidary would unlock cash for the cash-strapped company, having a Captain for the ship to steer the company is more important.

Should you buy into this stock now?

Oil prices are slowly climbing up to about US$50 a barrel. For investors who are banking on the rally in oil prices, this may be the time they consider buying oil-related stocks so as not to miss out on the rally.

Are these four Singapore stocks the safest dividends stocks for you now?

When it comes to the more dynamic stocks markets currently, investors want to invest in stocks safely. So what is a good benchmark for “safe stocks”, some cite safe stocks are blue-chip stocks, stocks like Singtel, SPH and Keppel Corp but we noted that these blue-chip stocks are not the exceptions to the global markets volatility. In my own view, a better indicator of safe stocks should be a low or if better, zero debt to equity ratio.

Is this REIT a gem worth buying?

Will you buy these top five revenue growth dividends Singapore stocks?

In today’s markets where it is getting more and more dynamic, I believe many investors are starting to look into fundamentals of companies so that they know that there is still a reason for them to hold on to their stocks as they ride out the stock markets volatilities. I believe one such criterion investors should look at, fundamental-wise is the revenue growth of these companies: are these companies growing? If so, it is a good reason to invest in these stocks.

Will you buy this blue-chip stock with 9.92% dividends yields?

I applied for Hutchinson Ports Holdings trust when the trust went IPO in year 2011 for 2,000 shares and I was allotted the full 2,000 shares. Paying $2,588 for the 2,000 shares, my average cost per share worked out to $1.294 (which was US $1.03 then), not counting the $2 transaction fee for the application of the IPO via ATM.

SINGAPORE MILLIONAIRE SECRETS DECODED

While many retail investors are learning how to become millionaires in their investing pursuits, there exists a group of our folks who have ventured and become self-made millionaires in their own rights, in a profession which is not always known till now to churn out millionaires: tuition. Yes, that is right, millionaire tutors and The Straits Times today ran an article yet again on folks who have struck gold in their tuition venture pursuit. The millionaire tutor who is most bantered about is none other than Mr Anthony Fok, an economic private tutor.

An advice for investors

Against the current stocks markets backdrop, I would urge investors not to fall prey to emotions as right now there is only one theme in the stocks markets which is greed. Greed for those good stocks that have traded lower; investors rush in only to “catch a falling knife”. Then there is the penny stocks party where investors upon seeing how easy monies can be earned from penny stocks, try speculating these stocks themselves.

Which is a better buy: Keppel Corporation stock or Sembcorp Industries stock?

Keppel Corp and Sembcorp Industries were once the big brothers of the well-loved blue-chip stocks. The more senior investors who invested in these counters might have accumulated a large number of these stocks. But, these stocks have gone south due to the oil prices issue with Keppel Corp headed south by 40% in 52-week price change, Sembcorp by almost 35% in the same period.

On the first day of its trading on SGX on 20 May 2016, Manulife US Reit closed at US$0.79 which was about 4.82% lower than the IPO price of US $0.83. As of its closing price on 20 May 2016, Manulife US Reit traded at 1.01 times its book value.

Are these the Top Four Singapore stocks?

Amidst the current Singapore stocks markets backdrop, I am looking at some stocks ideas. I mean the Singapore stocks markets are not very uniform, I noted some stocks are trading over their valuation while others are playing catch-up, all these in a Singapore stocks markets which are neither up or down or consolidating. The Singapore stocks markets are currently responding to every possible clue of the US economy and the larger global markets.

Will this Singapore stock head south next?

On 14 May 2016, I posted about Golden Agriculture stock and said that the stock was then trading close to the 200-days-moving-average and that if this average is crossed down, then Golden Agriculture stock might head south next.

Hutchinson Port Holdings Trust closed at USD 43 cents or SGD 59 cents on 17 May 2016 (it depends on whether one is interested in buying the trust in USD-denominated or SGD-denominated). According to SGX’s StockFacts based on 17 May 2016, Hutchinson Port Holdings Trust is currently trading at a price-to-book ratio of 0.723, at a 9.99% dividends, at a Price-to-Earning ratio of 17.623.

Multi-bagging Singapore stocks

Today, there are many Singapore stocks which become multi-baggers. Consider Jadason stock, this stock closed 215.385% of yesterday’s closing. Attilan and Blumont each rose by 200% and not to mention LifeBrandz which rallied up by 100%. If you had a crystal ball and pumped $100,000 into each of these rally stock, you will profit $100,000 today.

A quick scan at the Singapore stocks markets

I did a quick scan of the Singapore stocks markets. Many blue-chip dividends stocks are now trending low but it might not the right time to buy into them now, looking at the backdrop of the global stock markets. Some small-cap stocks are pushing towards great heights as investors rush into them, due to their solid fundamentals which have been neglected by the Singapore stocks markets for quite some time. On 13 May 2016, one such neglected stock which went up by 10.5% is 800 Super. For some stocks which are still pushing forth like Best World International, I noted that investors are currently taking their monies off the table as we could see from the 6.01% southing of the stock on 13 May 2016.

Golden Agriculture stock

Golden Agriculture stock released a set of better financial results yesterday, boosting its stock price by 2.8% to $0.37. A “Hammer” stock candlestick formed for Golden Agriculture stock yesterday and the RSI seems to want to trend up from the oversold region. The $0.365 price support might have been broken from yesterday’s move of the stock and if that is so, the stock might trend up higher from where it was yesterday. However amidst the current stocks markets backdrop, I would wait for a clear trend to emerge before entering into a more sustainable buying trend for the stock.

DBS stock, OCBC stock, UOB stock: which is a Best Buy?

While some investors might fret about the performance of Singapore stocks, it may also be a time to look at how some blue-chip Singapore stocks with solid fundamentals are doing now. The thing to note is that we may not be necessarily trying to buy these stocks now for the trend of Singapore stocks might still be south. What we want to do is to at least have some of these stocks on our “shopping list” so that we can go out to do our “shopping” when the price of these stocks seem good to us.

Of Singtel and SingPost stock

Though I do not own Singpost stocks, I feel that Singpost is an interesting stock as it revamps and regears its traditional mail business towards technology (like testing out drones to deliver mail). Singpost is also aggressive embarking on e-commerce initiatives. Singtel which is also embracing IT and technology platform is a major shareholder in Singpost with a 22.87% stake in the company.

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.

What Singapore investors need to know about investing in Singapore stocks now?

Dear readers, let us recall first how Singapore stocks have fared for the year to date before I give my humble opinion about the Singapore stocks markets going forward.

First, Singapore stocks traded attractively in January this year, in line with regional stocks due to the rout in China’s stocks. Hence it was a good time to invest in solid blue-chip stocks which were equally trading attractively then. One of these stocks was DBS stock which I have bought for a a low of $13+ per share and have since liquidated them for a high of $15+ per share. Ever since my sale of DBS stock, banking stocks have tried to rally higher but were met with resistance.

Why Noble Group stock went down 13.58% today?

Today, Noble Group stock price went down, south by 13.58% to close at $0.35, which was also the lowest trading price for the day. So what could have caused Noble Group stock closing price today? Well, it could have been due to two factors. First factor would be the sale of 9,177,700 shares in Noble Group for $3.872 million by Franklin Resources, this works out to be around 42.19 cents per share. Second factor would be the underpeformance of China’s stocks today amidst concerns of China’s economy. We know Noble Group’s business has a focus in China too.

Should you be excited about this blue-chip stock as well?

From the internet articles which I have read, there are currently many bullish reports as well as recommendations about one Singapore’s blue-chip stock and this blue-chip stock is none other than SGX stock. I need not elaborate more about this stock as the fact that we investors invest in Singapore stocks means that we are contributing to SGX’s bottomline. Fundamentally interesting for SGX will be on how it will continue to grow its derivatives business amidst “concerns” of many that the SGX market is still not as “vibrant as before”.

A Buying Opportunity into the Singapore stocks markets

Amidst the current backdrop in the Singapore stocks markets, it is probably a good time to look at some blue-chip stocks which are currently trending lower. While many investors are shunning the Singapore stocks markets, in any way, it does not stop me from looking at some good stocks with great fundamentals to buy. To me, buying stocks is like buying basic necessities, it is like going shopping. Why pay a higher price for stocks when some of these are trading at a discount?

Should we buy these three stocks now?

In line with the broader global markets, the three local bank stocks have not been doing well. UOB stock closed at $18.10 yesterday, back to its March 2016 level. DBS stock closed at $15.01 yesterday, a level which was deemed as a resistance. Finally, we have OCBC stock which closed at $8.44, also a level the stock reached in Mar 2016. I looked at the stock charts of these three local banks and saw a “head and shoulder” pattern in them. However at the current levels, it is still not attractive to me to buy though for investors keen to buy these stocks, I believe these stock prices will go up a little, but nothing of the magnitude that we will see from the January 2016 level and up.

Could this Singapore stock go higher?

The Singapore benchmark stock index, STI closed lower by 1.36% yesterday, tracking the direction of other regional stock indices. Since the start of May 2016, the STI has been declining and it seems to validate the saying: “Sell your stocks in May and Go Away”.

All about trading and investing consistently, profitably

It has been almost a week since I last blogged on Singapore Stocks Investing blog. Some readers might have wondered whether I have lost interest in the Singapore stocks markets with my not being here on Singapore Stocks Investing blog for the previous week. Well, far from being not interested in stocks, I was actually all the more interested as I focused more on learning in both investing and trading, the Tom-K way. I know many investors have tried to find a consistent profitable trading strategy but gave up after not having found one. I would think that just because one has not found consistent, profitable trading strategies, it means that there is no such strategy. Well, if that is so, then there will not be successful traders who are now financially-free and now teaching others.
