Here’s How The Stocks Within The Singapore’s Straits Times Index (STI) Have Changed Since 1998

With a history dating back to 1966, the Straits Times Index (STI) was originally coined as the Straits Industrial Index. After 30-odd years, the Straits Industrial Index was eventually succeeded by Straits Times Index on 31 August 1998. The reason for changing the index was to allow the index to cover more sectors and properly reflect the daily trading activities of stocks on SGX (or then-Stock Exchange of Singapore). Established by SPH, SGX and FTSE Russell, the index is reviewed on a semi-annual basis. Companies can be removed and added to the index based on their market capitalisation changes. Since STI’s official inception, the index has undergone several changes. The most recent major movement would be the replacement of SPH with Mapletree Industrial Trust on June 2020. Here, we com

Monthly wrap for August 2021: Decoupled from Wall St, the STI lost 3.5%, falling below 3,200 and 3,100 to 6-month low

STI shed 111 points to six-month low of 3,055.05 in August; Wall St’s all-time highs and optimism had little impact here; US market continued to bank on “transitory’’ inflation and “Goldilocks’’ scenario, although wary of Fed’s tapering; Delta variant was a concern throughout the month; Keppel’s bid to take SPH private was main corporate development Not a good month for the STI as it first lost 3,200 then 3,100 At the risk of stating the obvious, August was not particularly memorable as far as the local stock market was concerned as the Straits Times Index recorded a 111-points or 3.5% loss at 3,055.05. Technically inclined observers would know that the index had actually risen above 3,200 during the month but lost this mark in the second week. By the third and fourth

SPH Media Spin Off EGM- Retail Investors Should Be More Pro-Active To Exercise Their Voting Rights

I thought that it is a no-brainer to agree to the transfer of Media business out of SPH and into the newly created CLG entity. Media is a loss making business. Existing shareholders need to bite the bullet and agree to pay the divorce fees to get rid of the Media segment. It is only with the media business out of SPH that we can move on to the next stage of a wider corporate action options being made available to sell of the property business of SPH to other interested 3rd parties. 1. Media still making losses despite 2 rounds of staff cutting to save reduce labour cost.Once the traditional media economic moat is being disrupted by Facebook, google etc, there is no point in trying to keep doing headcount restructuring. SPH already went through 2 rounds. There is a limit that can be

United Hamsphire US REIT- High Distribution Yield of 8.1% And Points To Note If Investing In It.

United Hampshire US REIT (UHREIT) is actually a very resilient SGX listed REIT that is very much misunderstood. It has even been paying out stable distributions during the worst of the COVID induced global recession period in 2020. The recent announcement of its 1st half results with 3.05 cents interim distribution means an annualized high distribution yield of +8.13% based on unit price of US$0.75 as at 12 August 2021. The high distribution yield is one of the highest in SGX listed REITs out there. As with all high yield REIT, there are certain risk that one needs to take note which I will explain towards the end of this post. 1. Why UHREIT is resilient? UHREIT tenants are mostly in US Essential Services (94.8% occupancy) and long WALE of 8 yearsAs seen from above screenshot, UHREI

The Keppel Corp and SPH Deal That You Need to Be Careful On- NOT Done Deal Yet.

The lightning speed of the announcement this week by Keppel Corp on the acquisition of Singapore Press Holdings Group (SPH) caught many folks by surprise. Although I have mentioned on my 25 July 2021 post that corporate actions for SPH should eventually come as it is an inevitable eventuality given the benefits of economies of scale, the sudden materialization of corporate action still have me reeling in surprise and my jaw dropping. Are we finally bidding a last farewell to SPH which was incorporated on 4th August 1984? Is the offer of S$2.2 billion enough to convince existing Keppel Corp and SPH shareholders to say yes to the deal?1. S$2.2 billion offer by Keppel Corp is a very good deal?Unfortunately, the answer to this is a big No No as evident in the current market pricing of

Back... With Updates On My Portfolio

Hello everyone, it has been a long long time since I wrote anything. I had been restless for the last few months. In fact, over the last month, I had probably watched so much Netflix, Korean Drama and Movies that even the whole of last 2 years pales in comparison. It seem like I am playing catch up on “what I liked to do but stopped myself from doing because I felt I am wasting time”. Other time where I wasn’t working from home or watching drama/movies, I spent them with my daughter. Dancing, painting, going for lessons…just some father and daughter time. It was a great rest. I don’t mind having more of such time but NOW it is probably time to contribute to the investing community again. For a start, I did some amendment to my strategy by adding HK stocks to the mix as shown in t

S P500 closed at record high! What should we do? Buy or sell? (9 Aug 2021)

Dear all S P500 has clocked its sixth consecutive month of gains in July 2021. This is the longest stretch since 2018. Furthermore, S P500 has touched a record high to close at 4,437 on 6 Aug 2021. In the next 3 months, are markets poised for higher highs? Or should we be prudent and take some profit off the table first? Let’s take a look.   Ernest’s personal market observations a) Lack of catalysts to push the market higher Since Covid last year, markets, especially U.S. markets, have been able to push higher due partly to the combination of ultra-easy monetary policies; expansionary fiscal policies; improvement in the Covid 19 situation leading to the re-opening of economies; improving company results; low valuations (especially around Mar 2020 time) etc. However, after a blisterin

Soon after, both SPH and Keppel released a joint statement for a proposed acquisition offer from Keppel at $2.2 billion for SPH non-media assets. SPH then followed up with a proposed $3.4 billion privatisation plan which involved the payment of cash, Keppel REIT and SPH REIT units to shareholders.

Keppel Corp share price firing on all cylinders!

National Day Special Offer! On 2 August 2021, Keppel Corp stunned Singapore investment community with the announcement of the $2.2 billion strategic acquisition of Singapore Press Holdings ex-Media. Whilst the media segment had been carved out, the destiny of the remaining assets of SPH remained a mystery until the fateful announcement. Will the latest turn of event throw a spanner in the works for the recovery of Keppel Corp share price? Keppel Corp share price turned on the style following report of a net profit amounting to $300 million for half year ended 30 June 2021. Notwithstanding the strong results, what truly turbocharged Keppel Corp share price was the surprising bonanza cash dividend of 12.0 cents, which is significantly higher than 2020’s interim dividend of 3.0 cents and al

SPH -- The Final Nail In The Coffin

By know it shouldnt be a secret that Keppel Corp offer to acquire SPH less the media business in a S$3.4 billion deal.  Under the offer, SPH shareholders will receive 66.8 cents in cash per share together with 0.596 Keppel Reit units and 0.782 SPH Reit units per share.  The total consideration is about S$2.099 per share based on share price of Keppel Reit (S$1.20) and SPH Reit (S$0.915) as of 30th July 2021.Since 2017 when SPH announced appointing Ng Yat Chung as CEO (26th May 2017), I have written 3 blogs on SPH.SPH -- A No No For Me.............  (21st Sep 2017)SPH -- All Times Low Since 1998 !!!  (28th Jul 2019)SPH Saga  (10th May 2021)So with the current event, privatization, this is the time to finally close the chapter on SPH.  Well I wasnt a single da

Press Statement: Offer by Keppel/SPH Deal

The privatisation offer by Keppel for SPH, values SPH shares at $2.099 per share. While offer price is above current trading price of SPH, it does represent a slight discount to NAV of $2.26 per share. However this is conditional on the SPH shareholders approving the restructuring of the SPH media business. Both parties believe that this is a win-win solution. After weighing various options, SPH believes that the privatisation offer by Keppel is the preferred solution as it allows shareholders to realise the value of their SPH shareholdings with minimal disruption. Moreover, this acquisition is said to open up synergistic opportunities for Keppel, given the good fit between the two businesses. Both SPH and Keppel shareholders will have to approve the offer and SIAS await the IFA report to

5 Things To Know About Keppel Corp Privatisation Offer For SPH

Earlier today on 2 August 2021, Singapore Press Holdings (SGX: T39) along with SPH REIT (SGX: SK6U), Keppel Corp (SGX: BN4), and Keppel REIT (SGX: K71U) called for a trading halt. Shortly after, SPH announced that it had received a privatisation offer from Keppel Corp (SGX: BN4). According to SPH, the offer is worth $3.4 billion. This offer will not come as a surprise to anyone. Given that SPH was already looking to hive off its loss-making media business, this meant that the company would be left with just its property, student accommodation and aged care business. And a large part of its property business was also via its majority ownership of SPH REIT, which is listed on the SGX as well. For anyone who has some shares in SPH currently, here are 5 things you should know. #1 For existing
