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:

1) Wheelock Properties

2) Ho Bee

3) UOL

4) Sembcorp Marine

5) Baker Technology

6) Dyna-Mac

7) KS Energy

8) Posh

9) Pacific Radiance

10) PEC

11) Tat Hong

12) Triyards

13) Sunningdale Tech

14) Wingtai Asia

15) QAF

16) Bukit Sembawang

Though I share this post with all of you, I still feel that buying a stock on the hope that one can realize a profit through privatization of the stock is a speculative strategy.
