These ten billons-dollars caps stock are trading at 52-week lows, should you buy them now?

Some investors shrug off penny stocks as they deem that these stocks are riskier. On the converse, there are investors who prefer to invest in billion-dollar stocks deeming these as stocks belonging to companies which have an established presence. While the latter statement is somehow true, but over the years, we have seen how billion-dollar cap companies can also be “victims” of global stocks markets rout or slump in commodity, energy or shipping industries.

Are these the five most DESIRED billion-caps Singapore stocks?

What makes a good stock? There are many possible answers but the answers will be related to the fundamentals of the company. Fundamentals are many which range from price-to-book ratio, price-to-earnings ratio but the most important fundamental in my opinion is the debt-to-equity ratio.

Is it time to sell off these stocks?

Investors’ favorite stocks have all along been defensive stocks which pay steady dividends. These are also stocks which provide everyday services. So what are these favorite stocks? Well, it has to be the three telco stocks: Singtel, StarHub and M1 stock. Looking at the stock chart of these three stocks, we can note that these three stocks have been recording highs such that a top has been formed for them.

Should Investors start to sell these stocks now?

When news first broke in the world of the Zika virus, I read of what happened in Brazil and was afraid that Zika could come to our shores. And after a long time, news broke out last week that Zika virus found its way to Hong Kong, and I thought with Zika in such a close proximity, Singapore would likely to have similar cases (the Zika case in Hong Kong later proved to be negative).

What investors need to know about the stocks markets next?

Singapore stocks, in my opinion have been trading without much of a lead, as investors would like to know and understand what the macro trends shaping the stocks markets will be. And now, we have some sort of an inkling.

First, the much anticipated decision of the US interest rate hike. It is getting much clearer after Janet Yellen’s speech that the interest rate hike is still on the table and many analysts and stocks markets watcher believe the US will increase the interest rate at most twice by the year end. Should the interest rate rises incrementally, the effect on stocks markets will be felt incrementally; but overall, the effect on stocks will be felt. I should not elaborate here on this blog as to what these effects are since in the internet, there are so many literatures on this front.

Will you Buy these five billion-caps Singapore stocks now at 50% discount?

There are undervalued stocks; defined as those having their price-to-book ratio below one and there are highly undervalued stocks; defined as having a lower price-to-book ratio. For the latter, I would like to ascribe a price-to-book ratio of 0.5 so that theoretically, should an investor buy these stocks; they are paying just a half of the book value. In a way, this idea is attractive since it is just like a 50% discount off these highly undervalued stocks.

Is it the time to Buy this stock?

If you want to be a good investor, it is good to be curious, analytical about your environment, look at market trends and ask questions for stocks is nonetheless businesses and businesses serve everyday’s needs. This morning, I woke up and immediately I have a possible stock idea. What is it? Well, I smelled the smell of HAZE and instantly, the name of Medtecs International stock came to my mind.

Is it time to invest into these stocks now?

So, we had Brexit; we had stocks markets reacting to Brexit and the effect, as what many had thought was not as worst as what it could have been. And now many in the stocks markets thought that after this “knee-jerk” reaction, markets have rebounced since the whole process of Brexit as well as possible similar “exits” from other European countries would also have a long “gestation” period.

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.

How to be Rich without being a millionaire?

I had a look at the top 50 richest Singaporeans who have made it to the Forbes 2016 list. These are the richest of the rich in Singapore with more than few hundreds millions of US dollars on net worth. Once again, top of the list are names of property and banking magnates. What struck me (but it is a trend anyway) are those who are in the list because of their new media businesses and these rich are comparatively young. Mr Tan Min-Liang of Razor Inc made it to the list with a net worth of some US $600 million dollars. It is cool, isn’t it? The co-founder of Facebook who has since relocated here is also an entrant.

Two Singapore stocks in focus

I touched on two Singapore stocks in the previous week and asked readers whether these two stocks are poised for a “breakout”. After my posts, the two stocks did rally impressively and I raised a question to investors to the effect whether these two stocks’ rally is sustainable. Let u relook at the two stocks now.

NATIONAL DAY RALLY 2016

PM Lee will deliver his National Day 2016 Rally speech tonight. Personally, I thought PM Lee’s speech will come so timely, at a time when Singaporeans on this little tiny island are galvanized over Joseph Schooling’s Olympic Gold medal win. The Rally will mean so much to different people, be it more goodies to offset the high cost of living for families here, or be it more social assistance to help those who need help.

AGV IPO STOCK

AGV Group has launched an IPO for a listing on Singapore’s Catalist board. The IPO is via placement hence, I believe the IPO is not open to retail investors. The placement tranche is around 26.9 million shares at $0.22 each. AGV IPO stock is expected to trade on SGX on 26 Aug 2016.

THE HUSH Singapore Investing

I seldom watch TV shows, left alone local tv productions and hence I am glad that I have managed to catch most of the just concluded “The Hush” on Channel 5. Please don’t get me wrong. I watched the show not to see the former FHM Malaysian queen Sarah Lian, or former Malaysian beauty queen or up and coming local starlet Foo Fan Rong. I mean I am an old man already. I watched because of the intriguing plot right down to the last episode.

Can this stock be a multi-bagger stock now?

Hyflux is a well-known water company in Singapore and investors into this stock might think that Hyflux stock can be poised to ride on the growing importance of water in the future. However, after a good ascent, Hyflux stock is now not as interesting as before until recently when an article on The Edge Singapore carried an article on Hyflux which outlines Hyflux’s alternate business plans which are to sell oxygenated water and open up some forms of water-centric health spas. This is really interesting to me as Hyflux will be entering into the high-end health sector, like Osim which majors in massage chairs and teas.

Would you buy these attractive Singapore stocks now?

I believe in these current times, Singapore investors are looking more at the fundamental of the stocks that they are considering to invest in, given that over time good fundamental stocks will still be able to realize their valuation or potential. What makes a stock good? Is it the dividend factor? Is it that the stock has little debt or is it that the stock is undervalued?

This IPO stock has gone down by 17.64%, is it time to Buy now?

A recent IPO debutant Katrina which debuted on SGX via placement at a placement price of $0.21 closed at a price of $0.34 on its first day of debut (even reaching a high of $0.405 intra-day). However, thereafter, Katrina stock price has headed south to a support of $0.30. Yesterday (15 Aug 2016), this support of Katrina was broken down as Katrina stock headed south by a further 6.7% to close the trading day at $0.28. What has happened to Katrina stock?

Is this stock ready to rally?

In my blog post of 14 Aug 2016 , I asked readers whether it is a good time to invest in iFast Corporation stock. The reasons are that iFast Corp stock has gone down to near its IPO price and there was lots of buying volume in this stock (due mainly to buying from substantial shareholders). I shared with readers that these two factors are already good buying reasons for some investors.

Today, iFast Corp stock rallied by 3.1% to reach a price of $0.995 while intra-day, the high of iFast stock went as high as $1.02. To me, this is a good point to note as the resistance of iFast Corp stock has been $1 for quite sometime.

Will you Buy these five billion-caps Singapore stocks now at 50% discount?

There are undervalued stocks; defined as those having their price-to-book ratio below one and there are highly undervalued stocks; defined as having a lower price-to-book ratio. For the latter, I would like to ascribe a maximum price-to-book ratio of 0.5 so that theoretically, should an investor buy these stocks; they are paying just a half of the book value. In a way, this idea is attractive since it is just like a 50% discount off these highly undervalued stocks.

This stock has gone back to near its IPO price, is it time to invest in it?

In December 2014, iFast Corporation listed on SGX with an offer price of $0.95. I remember that there was some interest among the investing community in this stock then considering how there was an interest in financial technology (Fintech) then which continues till today, if not, even more. Then there was also the interest in FundSupermart.com, a platform under iFast. Investors also noted that SPH is the largest substantial shareholder in iFast with a stake of over 30%.

POKEMON GO SINGAPORE: WHAT INVESTORS CAN LEARN FROM IT ALL?

Ever since Pokemon Go grips Singapore, there are many people all around the island searching high and low for the Pokemons. And am I one of these “hunters”?

Will these stocks rally next?

Singapore stocks were trading in a lacklustre manner until the proposed privatization of SMRT stock and then Sim Lian stock which adds to the element of speculation (of which are the next stocks to be privatized) in the Singapore markets among the investing community. In the post of 10 Aug 2016, I have listed three such potential stocks: Ying Li international, Wheelock Properties and Ho Bee Land. As what I have expected, there are much interest in unraveling which are the next potential stocks to be privatized and an article which I have read sums it all well by listing not just a few of these potential stock but a galore of eighteen of them and here they are:

Another merger & acquisition, which stock is next?

Following the proposed delisting of SMRT stock, another stock will be taken private next. This time round, it is Sim Lian stock whose founder decided to delist the company with an offer of $1.08. Today, Sim Lian stock rallied up by around 13.3% to close the trading day at $1.065.

“Time capsule” stocks

It is not easy for an average investor to profit from the Singapore stocks markets, especially in the current stocks markets when there are no leads. It is also hard for investors to “cut loss” so investors will end up with having what I term as “time capsule” stocks where they put aside their losing trades for a long time, hoping to unveil their stocks like a time capsule in the future to see their positions have become profitable.

Sharing of my investment lessons

I have been investing in stocks for quite a long time already. And in the process, I think I have experienced what many retail investors have experienced which include paying tuition fees to the stocks markets ........you know what I mean. Actually, in my opinion paying tuition fees to the markets is okay as long as the tuition fees are not large. I believe many would have experienced sitting on an unrealized loss, refusing to cut one’s stock portfolio loss, only to experience the stock going south more and more till by the time you decide to cut your portfolio loss, you get back minimum from your investments.

Will this stock be the next multi-bagger?

Every time I come back from my exercises, there is only one thing which I would like to do and that is to have a can of 100Plus. 100Plus hydrates and refreshes me in a way that water could not. Beyond just being a sports drink, one can enjoy 100Plus at anytime of the day.

While the latter statement is somehow true, but over the years, we have seen how billion-dollar cap companies can also be “victims” of global stocks markets rout or slump in commodity, energy or shipping industries.

Nevertheless, it is still tempting to consider billion-dollars caps stock which are now trading at low prices. Here are ten of the SGX-listed stocks which are trading within 5% of their 52-week trading lows.

Will you Buy these billion-caps Singapore stocks now at minimum 40% discount?

There are undervalued stocks; defined as those having their price-to-book ratio below one and there are highly undervalued stocks; defined as having a lower price-to-book ratio. For the latter, I would like to ascribe a maximum price-to-book ratio of 0.40 so that theoretically, should investors buy these stocks; they are paying for these stocks for less than half of their book value. The minimum price-to-book ratio for the above will be zero so that we can exclude negative earnings or equity.
