Though we have not come to December, but probably it is time to do a little review of my investment portfolio now and probably just “edit a little bit” of my portfolio where applicable when it comes to December. In December, the macro event for the stocks markets as the global financial community believes will be the interest rate hike decision by the US Federal Reserves and I am not sure how it might affect my portfolio. Alright, enough of my self-mumbling, let me share with you my investment portfolio for year 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:

Are these Singapore REITS the VALUED Buys NOW?

Singapore Real Estate Investment Trusts or REITs have not really been in the spotlight these days since most of the REITs have already done well in a low interest climate. Going forward, should interest rates rise, the consensus is that the interest rate rise will not do good to REITs as investors would have more platforms of higher interests. Having said so, it is useful to find out which of Singapore REITs could be valued Buys. A summary of Singapore REITs having a Price-to-Book ration of below One are as follows:

Are these Eleven Blue-chip Singapore stocks the BEST Buys NOW?

Dear readers, though the markets have been feeling quite jubilant after the US Presidential Election, I think it is still too early to think that the markets would continue to be bullish. In this macro-economy climate, some investors would seek shelter in traditionally blue-chip Singapore stocks and the most popular blue-chip Singapore stocks are inevitably the STI constituent stocks.

Civil Servants’ Bonus: my research

The Public Services Division announced yesterday that the year-end bonus for civil servants would be 0.5 month. This bonus, together with the mid-year bonus of 0.45 month would bring the total bonus (over and above the 13th month salary) to 0.95 month for a civil servant. I am not a civil servant but every year I would look forward to the announcement of the civil service’s bonus as a guide to how much bonus I would be getting myself. This is reasonable since civil servants’ bonus are pegged to the performance of Singapore’s economy for which other employers reportedly might take reference to.

It has been reported today that Mr John Soh Chee Wen, the alleged mastermind behind the penny stocks saga of 2013 has been arrested. If readers can recall that penny stocks saga involving Blumont, Asiasons (now called Attilian) and LionGold, the trio stocks went down or in stocks parlance “crashed” in value by more than 90% over a few trading days. To give you a scale of magnitude and proportion:

Who wants to be a Millionaire?

In a global wealth report just released yesterday, Singapore’s wealth per adult now stands at US$277,000 in 2016 and this effectively means that Singapore is the seventh top economy in the world with the highest average wealth per adult. With USD $1 now equal to SGD $1.43, this means that an average Singaporean adult has around SGD $396,000 wealth. The same report also states the there are 150,000 millionaires in Singapore though on the other side of the scale, 18% of Singapore’s adult population has wealth below US $10,000, compared with 73% globally.

Are these the Top Billion-caps Singapore stocks NOW?

Singapore billion-caps stocks are Singapore stocks with a market capitalization of more than $1 billion. One way of ensuring that one gets a good bargain when investing in stocks is to buy the stock at a good value. The Price-to-Book ratio is often a criteria for choosing stocks with good value through choosing undervalued stocks defined as having a Price-to-Book ratio of below one. It is also good if the stocks have a fixed dividends yields which will reward investors for buying and holding the stocks.

All retail investors should do this FIRST

It’s that time of the year when many of us review the resolutions that we have set for the year and see whether we have achieved the goals we set in various aspects of our lives. I believe one such aspect of life where many of us have set our goals in are our financial goals: how much we aspire to save or earn in this year.

Are these stocks worth a Buy now?

Many expect the US Federal Reserves to increase the interest rate once again as US President-Elect Trump shows the world that he means business both literally and figuratively in his plans for America and the world. The US dollar has since risen to the rate of around $1.41 SIN to $1 US dollar. It has been quite some time since I have seen this rate (as US dollars to Singapore dollars have been hovering around the $1.30+ range for quite some years). With interest rate expected to go up, banking stocks should be the main beneficiaries. In Singapore, we have the three big local bank stocks in DBS, OCBC and UOB stock. Let us pull out some statistics of these bank stocks.

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.

Dear readers, as you would have read so very often now, after Trump’s Presidential win, there are only questions on the economies and stocks markets ahead since the world does not know what Trump’s plans for US and the world are. Stocks markets, I believe will hence to be very dynamic going ahead.

Are these the cheapest Singapore blue-chip stocks NOW?

In the lead up to the US Elections, global stocks markets have become dynamic as the financial community wrestled with who would enter into the White House. After Donald Trump became elected as the US President, the stocks markets volatility would according to financial experts still persist as the world would not know what President Trump would bring to the world, in terms of his policies.

The highly anticipated US Elections has concluded and its back to normal business for the global stocks markets after a “knee-jerk” reaction to Donald Trump’s Presidential win. In such a stocks markets characterized by emotions, it is easy to speculate into certain stocks while neglecting the good fundamental stocks if there are any.

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.

What should Singapore Investors do now?

The Singapore stocks markets are trading without much of a catalysts and if there are any, this catalysts arises from domestic earnings reports and corporate actions of local companies. There is nothing fantastic about the corporate results announced so far. The more grabbing headline comes from Super Group stock as the company is gearing up for a buyout by a Dutch company, this could only provide investors with reasons to speculate on the next buyout target among Singapore companies.

Why Investing is your Greatest asset?

You read the title correctly. It is not investing in an asset but investing as an asset. You might ask how can investing be an asset? An asset is defined as something that puts monies in one’s pockets, according to Robert Kiyosaki. Do I mean the above is that investors leave his investment portfolio to his families and friends and this is considered as an asset? But as we all know, not all investments are profitable. Many investors may be better off leaving their monies in banks than incurring financial losses from their soured investments. Nothing is further from the truth.


Super Group stock continued to halt its trading on the Singapore stocks markets. Super Group last traded at $0.97, up by 7.8% on 31 Oct 2016. There was speculation that Super Group might be taken private. I shared the same sentiment in my previous post here . In early October 2016, Super Group stock started to have more trading interest from what I have observed. Just looked at the 52-week trading low of Super Group stock at $0.68, we could see how Super Group has rallied around 50% to reach the trading price on 31 Oct 2016. The all-time high of Super Group stock is around $2.41.
