Should Investors STILL BUY these NINE stocks NOW?

The Singapore stocks markets is performing well into Year 2017, continuing its rally since the election of President Trump and amidst talks that the US Federal Reserves will scale up its frequency of interest rates hikes. The Singapore stocks benchmark STI along with a number of Singapore stocks have been performing well so much so that some of these stocks are overbought, measured by their RSI being above 70. Let us take a look at some of these overbought Singapore stocks now:

The STI is at 3,025; what should investors DO NOW?

The Singapore Stocks markets benchmark indicator is on a good high of 3,025. Some analysts said that going forward, the STI should still advance. One bullish analyst even predicted that the STI might go into the 4,000 mark. All the analysts said are based on their own “crystal ball” and we should only know how accurate their predictions are at the end of the year.

The STI has been rising ever since the beginning of the year to the 3,000 level. This has had some analysts saying that the STI is going into a bull run. Indeed if we are to compare the performance of the Singapore stocks markets at the beginning of this month to that of Year 2016 where the global stocks markets were shaped by China’s stock markets, there is optimism among Singapore investors. Especially so when year 2016 is quite flattish in terms of local stocks markets performance.

How time flies, today is the last trading day for year 2016 and the STI Index, a benchmark indicator for Singapore stocks closed at 2,880.76. On the first day of the year (4 Jan 2016), the STI was 2,835.97 and hence for the whole year, the STI inched up by just 44.79 or 0.01%. The highest point of the STI was around 2,960 reached in April and December of year 2016 (around 4% increase) and the lowest point of the STI was around 2,530 (around 10% decline) in January and February of year 2016.

Dear readers, today is Christmas day and I, Tom K would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas holidays. Traditionally, this is the period where professional investors wrap down their investments for the year; fund managers closing their positions or doing some “window dressing”. Regardless of whether it is the institutional investors or retail investors, most of us would take this time to review our investment portfolios for year 2016.

ONE Stock of FOCUS & SG Markets ANALYSIS

There has been a flurry of interest in one Singapore stock from the previous week. So much so that online, there are some professional traders as well as retail investors talking about it. This stock is none other than Hyflux stock. And if you could remember my post some days ago when I mentioned about Hyflux, I mentioned that the trading volume in this stock was peaking up and signs pointing to a rallying of this stock. But despite these, I shared that I am not interested in Hyflux as its debt ratio is not very good. However, I am not sure for those who have read certain investing websites about Hyflux stock, they might have entered into Hyflux only to learn of the news today of a new desalination plant contract awarded to a company under Keppel Infrastructure Trust. Hyflux retreated 2.8% today.

The Federal Reserves has announced that it will increase interest rate and the rate of increase announced was higher than expected. Stocks markets responded to the interest rate decision by going lower. On one side, we have analysts giving banking counters a vote of confidence since they would be beneficiaries of interest rate hikes. On the other side; Reits, telecoms might be shunned since investors now have more better interest vehicles of wealth creation. For borrowers, mortgage loans would head north and they would need to examine the monthly cash flow phasing. And gold will not appear as attractive with the US Dollar climbing.

Would you Buy these stocks NOW?

Singapore stocks have been rather sluggish and the markets have not been giving investors leads to enter the stocks markets until the news of OPEC hashing out a deal to cut oil production. Oil prices rise after the deal and benefit oil-related stocks. The exuberance has rubbed on the Singapore stocks markets here with oil related stocks like Ezion, Ezra, Kris Energy, Name Cheong, Sembcorp Marine, Keppel making decent climbs yesterday (1 Dec 2016).

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:

Singapore Stocks post US Presidential Elections: what should investors do now?

Dear readers, if you have been following my blog for quite some time, you should know that I am a very frank person. Hence I must tell you that currently, I do not really want to take a look too frequently at how the Singapore stocks markets are trading now. It is not useful to do so because there are no clear leads from President-Elect Trump’s policies (what President-Elect Trump and his team has for US and the world) nor are there leads to the US Federal Reserves’ decision on interest rate hikes. Given such a backdrop, investors should not enter into new investing positions now to get that small gain from stocks.

This penny stock is now in the top volume list, will speculation cause it to rally next?

Dear readers, I believe everyone in the world is looking forward to who will become the next President of America who is often dubbed the most powerful person in the world. The outcome of this will be known pretty soon and investors are just one group who will be glued to the outcome as pretty much, who becomes elected as the US President has a great bearing on the global stocks markets.

Musing of the Singapore Stocks Markets

Some days ago, I read an article in the local newspapers which highlighted the situation facing some broking firms and remisiers today. According to the article, remisiers in Singapore these days may not be doing that well due to the thin trading volume on the Singapore bourse and hence this explains why the stock broking industry has seen a number of remisers left the industry. I could still recall that not too long ago, a group of stock brokers have banded together and submit a letter on how the Singapore stocks markets could be made more vibrant to DPM Tharman. All these just points to the situation of the Singapore stocks markets.

Good news for investors!

When readers look at the title of this post, readers must think that I am joking. For the Singapore stocks markets are, in line with the regional markets undergoing a southward movement. There is really a piece of good news and it resides in a letter which I receive from my telecom provider yesterday. My telecom provider is giving me additional GB for my mobile plan and I am really convinced that most of you readers will receive additional complimentary data packages too.

Would you buy these attractive Singapore stocks now?

I believe in these current times, Singapore investors are looking more at the fundamentals 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?

One advice for Singapore stocks invesors

The US Federal Reserves Open Market Committee has just concluded its meeting and as expected, there is no interest rate hike announced at the meeting. However, Jane Yellen said that there could be a interest rate hike this year. The Federal Reserves will next meet in November (before the US Presidential Election) and in December this year.

Singapore Stocks: Taking Stocks

I am not looking into buying Singapore stocks for the time being. The whole Singapore stocks markets is trading without much of a clues and directions. Traders who want to make a quick buck from some stocks may be lucky but in general the markets now are not for those who are not skilled traders specialized in intra-day contra- trades. It is a better time to have a new position in stocks when the stocks are trading low when value really emerges.

What Investors should understand about Singapore Stocks?

The Singapore Straits Time Index (STI) made a modest climb last Friday (16 Sep 2016), closing 0.78% higher at 2,827.45. Singapore stocks have been consolidating, neither in a bullish mode or a bearish mode though the hints of Federal Reserves delaying its interest rate hikes seems to be welcome by the stocks markets. However, as it is now, investors must take note of the US Federal Reserves Open Market Committee as an interest rate hike decision announced at the meeting will shape the stocks markets.
