There are currently 8 Singapore stocks, each having a market capitalization of more than $1 billion satisfying the following criteria:
a) the stock is trading at less than 5% from its 52-week low and
b) the stock is offering more than 5% dividends yields
Some investors like billion-cap stocks as the companies behind the stocks are perceived to have some form of market size and fundamentals. And one way they might want to invest in these stocks is to invest in them when they are trading at lows like in criterion a) above when the stock is trading at less than 5% from its 52-week low. At the same time, investors also want to be paid some dividends while holding the stocks. At the current market rate, a dividend rate of more than 5% seems pretty decent.
What are these 8 stocks? Without further ado, these are the 8 stocks:
1) Far East Hospitality Trust
2) Frasers Centrepoint Trust
3) OUE Hospitality Trust
4) Frasers Hospitality Trust
5) CapitaLand Mall Trust
6) M1 Limited
7) StarHub Ltd.
8) CapitaLand Mall Trust
After the above results are yielded, I do not know whether I should be surprised or not. Six of the above eight stocks are Reits and it is natural that they are trading at low prices given that investors might have shunned the stock due to the increasing of interest rates by the US Federal Reserves. For the remaining two stocks, they are the two smaller telecom stocks which might not seen much investors’ interest ever since the fourth telco licence was awarded to TPG. Investors buying stocks at a low might have to be prudent as their stock prices might continue to head lower.
