F&N stock
Dear readers, I have recently received a copy of the 2017 F&N Annual Report. Of all stocks which I have, F&N Annual Report is the one which I look forward to receiving yearly. You know that it is a F&N Annual Report when you are presented with a A4 copy of solid and colourful booklet filled with vibrant and refreshing pictures in very good quality paper. The packaging material of F&N Annual Report is equally wonderful and impressive. As unlike most paper envelopes for Annual Reports, F&N Annual Reports are packed in resilient A4 plastic cover, so that when you hold F&N Annual Report in your hand, this report looks indeed crispy indeed. Not surprising since F&N has a priniting and publishing business!

F&N stock
Dear readers, I think you will not disagree with me when I say F&N is a blue-chip stock. Yes, that’s right; F&N which has a competitive market clout in the beverages business in the region. Though F&N stock price may not be the most talked about in the market, slowly and steadily, F&N stock provides investors with a longer term rewards.

F&N stock
Dear readers, F&N is currently a stock in focus. Firstly, we have the SEA games in Malaysia ongoing. 100 Plus is a Silver sponsor for the SEA games and we know that 100 Plus is a product under the F&N group. Secondly, in our National Day Rally, the spotlight is on carbonated drinks as Singapore goes into a drive to say no to diabetes. F&N is one of the soft drink companies which has pledged to reduce the sugar contents in its beverages.

F&N stock
Dear readers, the National Day Rally has highlighted that the government and Singaporeans together must do more in the war against diabetes. Recommended measures include cutting down one’s intake of soft drinks.

F&N stock: A POTENTIAL STOCK [Part 2]

Next up is alcoholic drinks. The main drivers in this segment is to expand into and cement F&N position in the overseas markets like Myanmar and Vietnam. A new CEO had also been appointed in this segment. Food is the segment which I believe will be an interesting segment to watch as the beverage-centric company establishes itself as a truly F&B (i.e. entering into the Food business). With a good cash pile, I believe the new CEO for food might look into acquiring some local food firms be they listed or not to facilitate F&N foray into this segment. I can think of some possible names of listed food firms on my mind now.

F&N stock: A POTENTIAL STOCK [Part 1]

To say F&N is a business is an understatement; it is actually to me a conglomerate comprising three key business in non-alcoholic beverages, alcoholic beverages and books and publishing. There is one more segment which is Food. Each of the four businesses has its own CEO and all the CEOs report to the Board chaired by Mr Chaoren.

To believe in the cause of a stock is good but it is a double-edged sword. Some companies like to paint such a beautiful growth story that has investors convicted on the stocks in a speculative way. The investors buy these stocks only to see the price of the stock head south. But on the other end of the spectrum, if one has strong good conviction in a stock, he will remain undistracted and hold the stock long enough to reap profits. So how do we have strong conviction in the stocks we buy? I believe one good way of being a strong believer in the cause of a stock is if you are a user or consumer of the products and services and you like what you consume.

Will this stock be the next multi-bagger?

Every time I come back from my exercises, there is only one thing which I would like to do and that is to have a can of 100Plus. 100Plus hydrates and refreshes me in a way that water could not. Beyond just being a sports drink, one can enjoy 100Plus at anytime of the day.

My stocks portfolio finally revealed

Today, I am going to share with readers some of the stocks in my investment portfolio which I am going to hold for a long time.

First of all, Golden Agriculture stock. This stock has borne the brunt of falling crude palm oil prices and hence my stock holdings in this has underperformed. However, I am pleased with the performance of this company and the management of this company is good if we consider how other commodities companies had faced with less than rosy reports of perception.

SEA games stocks: will you buy them?

With the lighting up of the SEA games torch by Singapore’s very own soccer legend, Fandi Ahmad and his son, the SEA games officially kicked off in Singapore on 5 Jun 2015. On 4 Jun 2015, Feng Tian Wei, whom I would describe as Singapore’s “blue chip stock” when it comes to sports was eliminated from the SEA Games women’s singles when she lost to her Thailand counterpart, dashing hopes of Singapore’s “clean sweep” of the Table Tennis medals. Well, we could not blame her for even the very best Singapore’s blue chip stocks on the SGX could go down at times, right. Enough of my talking of non-related things to this post, let us examine Singapore’s stocks related to SEA games which may be of interest to retail investors.

F&N stock: a sleepy stock or a growth stock?

I have just completed reading F&N’s annual report 2014. To investors who think F&N is just a company behind the slew of assorted soft drinks in the supermarkets, F&N is actually a company which offers dairy products, beers as well as printing and publishing services. The cozy chain of Times bookstores we have visited in shopping centres are also owned by F&N. In this post, I will not touch on the many facts and figures in F&N’s annual report but instead provide a general commentary on what I think are the growth prospects of the company as I think many retail investors view F&N as a “sleepy stock” with not much of a hype coming from this counter ever since the high-profile demerger and spinning-off of its property business into another separate listed entity.

F&N stocks: $0.42 per share capital reduction

F&N paid out $0.42 per share to eligible investors on or around 3-Apr-2014 in an exercise called capital reduction. As I have shared with readers, I bought F&N stocks and one of the reasons why I bought F&N share then was due to this fact of capital reduction as I know that I would be paid 42-cents per share if I were to hold on to the stocks. I paid $3.40 for F&N per lot (1000 shares) and I still remember that the day before F&N went ex-entitlement, F&N stock went as high as $3.68 in stock price and on the day of ex-entitlement, the stock price went south to around $3.20+.

F&N stock: Fraser and Neave to acquire Yoke Industries

F&N (Fraser and Neave) announced after trading hours on 21 March 2014 that it would be acquiring a 70% stake in Yoke Food industries, a Malaysia-based beverages company. I am not surprised that F&N will be carrying out acquisitions as it is quite clear after that now F&N is growing its food & beverage businesses after divesting all the other non-beverage businesses. The acquisition will increase F&N’s presence in Indonesia and Cambodia.

Frasers and Neave (F&N) will spin off its property business into FRASERS CENTREPOINT LIMITED , however FRASERS CENTREPOINT LIMITED will not be launched or listed on the market via an IPO, rather F&N will offer to its current shareholders 2 shares of FRASERS CENTREPOINT LIMITED , for every F&N stock they hold. This method of listing is quite familiar to me as I have held Ezra stocks before when they introduce the Triyard stocks to me. F&N has already in its portfolio Frasers Centerpoint Trust which is made up of shopping malls as the portfolio, hence I believe FRASERS CENTREPOINT LIMITED will be a stock which will allow F&N to grow as a developer like Capitaland in the business of property development in not only Singapore but across the region. I also hear news that F&N will also be looking into setting up and listing a hospitality Reits too. Though F&N will still retain its beverages businesses but ever since F&N is sold to the Thais, F&N has become more like a property conglomerate with Frasers Centrepoint Trust, and now Frasers Centrepoint Limited and then perhaps Frasers Hospitality Trust.
