I have not been blogging here on SINGAPORE STOCKS INVESTING for really quite sometime. My last published post here on this blog was dated 21 March 2017 and hence I have really “disappeared” from financial blogosphere for more than a week. So what has happened to Tom K during this period?

Well, health problems have stopped me from blogging. For the past week, I was really very not well so much so that I slept for most of two full days last week. Usually, I would look at financial and investment news from Singapore and overseas regularly for updates many times a day and I could not do that when I was not well last week. What I managed to do was to just glance quickly at the local and overseas stock prices of counters which I bought at the end of trading day.

Kimly stock
I was having my instant coffee as shared in my earlier post when I saw Kimly Group stock, as expected defied gravity and shot to an high of $0.55 from an IPO price of $0.25. At that instant, the coffee in my mouth also shot through too. Kimly Group stock finally closed a little lower at $0.44 per share though it was still a stellar 76% rally in IPO stock price.

Monday, March 20, 2017


Before the local Singapore stocks market opens on 20 Mar 2017, these are the two stocks which investors must know:

1) Kimly Group stock

Kimly Group stock is making a debut on the Singapore stocks markets. The coffee-shop operator stock is the first stock of such a nature to be listed on the local bourse. Kimly Group stock IPO is around 8.3 oversubscribed and this points to the strong demand as well as expectation that Kimly Group stock should have a stellar performance on its first day of trading when the local stocks markets open later. At an IPO price of $0.25, the question is how much Kimly Group stock will trade at a premium over this IPO price. But I would always like to think that the stocks markets is always more than investors’ expectations, thinking or speculation, thus I would still think that there is a possibility that Kimly Group stock may dip a little below its IPO price.


Ezra stockEZRA has filed for bankruptcy in the US states yesterday (19 Mar 2017). This was the latest development following the trading halt in Ezra share last Wednesday. I am not too familiar with how bankruptcy of local stocks in Singapore will proceed and more importantly whether there will be a possibility shareholders of Ezra stock would get back their capital or even some monies. It seems to me even more complex now since Ezra is a Singapore-listed stock but it has filed for bankruptcy in the United States, hence I do not know how this will all translate.

Privatisation stocks
The news that M1’s three largest shareholders are reviewing their stakes in M1 has led to speculation on the possible privatization of M1 stock. M1 stock responded in return, soaring some 7.9% on 17 Mar 2017 before the trading halt of the stock. It was reported that talks of potential divestment of listed Telco firms has come as early as last year as the major Telco players brace themselves for the fourth Telco player into the stocks markets. Singtel and Starhub stocks also benefitted from the speculation, with each rallying last Friday. I believe the stocks markets are in the mood for looking at other possible names of privatization candidates too. There are many of these being floated around and I list below some of these potential privatization candidates:

KIMLY IPO: how does it go for TOM K?

Dear readers, as you would have most probably known by now; Kimly IPO subscription ended yesterday 17 Mar 2017 at 12pm and the IPO was oversubscribed by more than 8 times. As shared earlier in my blog post on Kimly IPO (you can refer to the post here); Kimly IPO is widely expected, due to its defensive business model, to debut strongly on its first day of trading next Monday; as a result it is most certain that those investors who have subscribed for Kimly IPO would like to find out whether they have been allocated any of Kimly stocks. And from the earlier post, you would have known too that I have subscribed to Kimly IPO stock as well.

Moya Asia
I last blogged on Moya Asia sock in February 2017; you can refer to the post here . Since then the stock has been trading in a tight consolidation pattern with a support at $0.067. Yesterday, the stock traded on high volume, closing the day at 7.2% higher with a upward bullish candlestick. The 5-Days Moving Average which has traded below the 20-Days Moving Average seems to be making an attempt to break the 20-Days Moving Average higher. The RSI seems moving to higher overbought regions. On a general trend, Moya Asia stock is still on a long-term uptrend. And if my judgment is correct, Moya Asia stock could become the next Alliance Minerals stock as it moves slowly to the 10 cents per share mark. However before Moya Asia stock reaches that higher level, the stock is bound to undergo a series of “waves movement”.

High dividends stocks
If you have been a regular reader of Singapore Stocks Investing, you would have noticed that I have been advocating high dividends stock which could stand the test of time and give investors some form of passive income in the form of dividends during his holding period of the stock. However, some stocks do offer very high dividends yields and are value traps, hence the important point is to buy high-dividends stocks selectively.

Best singapore stocks
The current Singapore stocks markets like others are waiting for the US Federal Reserves’ decision on interest rate hikes. My belief, like others is that the anticipation of a interest rate hike has been priced in by the stocks markets. While investors might be clueless on what to invest in this current stock markets, the good thing to do would be to treat investment as a long-term plan to grow one’s wealth. When one think long-term, one would think of what one would look out for in a stock.

DBS stock, UOB stock, OCBC stock
The US Federal Reserves is expected to increase the interest rate this week with the strong US jobs numbers. In light of the above, the local banking stocks should be of interest to investors again. Let us revisit the performance of the three largest bank stocks in Singapore: DBS, OCBC and UOB.

DBS stock currently traded at $18.93, down by 0.73% from its 52-week high of $19.07. The stock currently traded at a Price-to-Earnings ratio of 11.244 and has a consensus target price of $19.61, a potential upside of 3.5%.

OCBC stock currently traded at $9.56, down by 1.95% from its 52-week high of $9.75. The stock currently traded at a Price-to-Earnings ratio of 11.63 and has a consensus target price of $9.631, a potential upside of 0.74%.

At its 52-weeks high, Jumbo stock traded at a high of $0.78 and currently the stock traded at $0.68 which means to say that Jumbo stock has corrected around 13% from its 52-week high.

KIMLY IPO I have applied for a decent number of shares of the upcoming KIMLY GROUP IPO. It has been really some time since I applied for IPOs as I am very selective when it comes to an IPO. I know of quite a number of folks who apply for IPO on a “lottery” mentality, meaning to say they will sell the IPO stocks at a premium if the stock debuts much above the IPO price on the very first day of the stock’s IPO. For me, I treat IPO stock just like how I treat and select the current stocks. It is a business case for me, how the business model will pan out in the future and whether the model is a sustainable one. For Kimly Group IPO, I like the fact that Kimly is a defensive, recession-proof and cash generative business. One just need to take a peek outside the coffeeshops owned by Kimly to see for oneself how good is business. For more of my perspectives of Kimly Group IPO stock, you can refer to my blog post made earlier here

Are these billion-caps Singapore Stocks GREAT BUYS NOW?

Singapore stocks
In the current Singapore stocks markets, where the bullish buying of Singapore stocks in the first two months of the year has receded, what we currently note in the Singapore stocks markets is driven by speculation in penny stocks (for this, just take a look at the top volume stocks); the revisiting of potential privatization plays as well as the discussion of macro factors in the Singapore stocks markets arising from the upcoming Dutch elections as well as the discussions on the US Federal Reserves’ interest rates.

Kimly Group IPO
KIMLY GROUP IPO is the latest IPO for the Singapore stocks market. KIMLY GROUP IPO comes at the time when the Singapore stocks markets are behaving in a non-bullish manner after a great performance in January and February of the year. I believe Kimly GROUP IPO will be closely scrutinized by retail investors as investment ideas seem to dry from the current stocks markets.


Singapore stocks
In today’s stocks markets, is there value to be found in stocks? Well, there is still value to be found, if investors choose stocks against a set of well-regarded benchmarks. What if the stock has a decent debt ratio, a good dividends record and is currently undervalued? There exist three stocks in the Singapore stocks markets which are:  a) trading above 5% dividends yield; b) has a Price-to-Book ratio of less than 0.50 and c) and a debt-to-equity ratio of less than 50%

Why Investors should be HAPPY?

Singapore stocks
As I have earlier predicted in my blog, March will be a month where the local stocks markets will take a breather; this is evident from the recent showing of the STI. There are two main factors shaping stocks markets this month. First is the Holland election and next is the US Federal Reserves interest rates hike. Many expect the US Federal Reserves to increase interest rates just as what Janet Yellen has hinted.

I attempted a quick trade on 3 Mar 2017 on one of the top volume stock during trading hours. When the stocks markets closed, I made profits. Today, the stock continued to run, giving me more profits in the same stock. Was I delighted? Of course and while one usually think of it’s the monies that would make me and investors in the green happy, I would say I am delighted because of my trading strategy which delivered. And this is a trading strategy which I am currently exploring; a trading strategy which does not belong to the safer dividends and low-risk approach which I more frequently advocate in this blog. And thus I don’t really want to advocate in this blog because when it comes to momentum trading, one should know when to take profits when “the partying stops”.

Bukit Sembawang stock, Ho Bee Stock, Wing Tai stockBukit Sembawang stock, a sleepy stock rallied by almost 8% after DBS issued a report, crowning it the “Landlord King”. There has been speculation that Bukit Sembawang stock would finally be taken private after years of speculation, given that this is an undervalued stock (however with yesterday’s price rally, the stock has a Price-to-Book ratio of 1.062 now). Many think that the recent in property stocks may finally pave the way open for the privatization of the often-cited property plays in Bukit Sembawang stock, Wing Tai Properties and Ho Bee Properties Limited stock. Let us take a look at the fundamentals of these stocks.

My Completed Trades for Year 2017

Starhub stock, HPH Trust
Since January 2017, I have entered into few trades involving Singapore stocks, thought of just sharing with you readers two of such trades which I have made.

The first trade was Asian Pay Television Trust which I made a first post for the year on 2 Feb 2017 (you can read the post here ). Then, the stock was trading at around $0.405 and I have made a good profit selling the stock later. [As info, I am not including the real % gain and amounts made as this blog is not about boosting my ego].
