Lion OCBC Securities Hang Seng Tech ETF

Lion OCBC ETF

Ten years ago, it is hard to imagine Chinese technology companies that could rival their US counterparts like Google, FaceBook, Amazon and Netflix. Now, the likes of Alibaba, Baidu and Tencent have dominated Mainland Chinese’s mammoth market. Against the backdrop of a US-China trade war, many of them have secondary listings in the Hong Kong stock exchange in recent years. Could this trend be a catalyst for Lion OCBC Securities Hang Seng Tech ETF?

OCBC share price on the way to $11

If you believe in the long-term growth of Chinese technology industry, the Lion OCBC Securities Hang Seng Tech ETF may be an interesting offering. Lion Global Investors, the asset management arm of OCBC bank, is listing the Lion OCBC Securities Hang Seng Tech ETF. Launched in 20 July 2020, the Hang Seng Tech Index tracks the 30 largest technology companies listed in Hong Kong. The IPO period for Lion OCBC Securities Hang Seng Tech ETF is from 23 November to 7 December 2020.

OCBC share price on the way to $11

OCBC share price

On 9 November 2020, I wrote that OCBC share price was poised for an upturn and could potentially hit $10.00. Since then, OCBC share price went on a splendid run to smash past $10.00 within a span of just two weeks. The superb form of OCBC share price caught many investors, including myself, by surprise.

The main catalyst for OCBC share price should be attributed to the possibility of COVID-19 vaccination deployment in December, sparking widespread pent-up expectations of macroeconomic recovery in 2021. Indeed, 2020 has been such a wretched year for OCBC share price that any positive developments in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic raise expectations of a global economic recovery.

OCBC share price

Another catalyst for OCBC share price was the Lion Global Investors’ listing of tech-focused ETF on SGX. The ETF tracks technology companies listed in Hang Seng. As Lion Global Investors is the asset management arm of OCBC, the ETF should give OCBC share price a shot in the arm and fuel the bullish form of OCBC share price.

The third driving force for OCBC share price should be the stellar performance of its wealth management unit – Bank of Singapore. The acquisition of …

Will that fits the bill

MoneyOwl

By Lena Teng, CFP®, Acting Head of Solutions and Investment Lead, MoneyOwl

Amongst all the pillars of financial management, from savings to investments to retirement planning, will-writing is definitely the one that’s most misunderstood.

A will is a legal document through which a person declares how his/her assets will be distributed in the event of death. A simple internet search on ‘will-writing’ brings you to a long list of suggestions, of which a good number of them focus only on breaking down its misconceptions and common myths. The immense number of articles on this just goes to show that many are still unsure of this confusing and misunderstood aspect of financial planning.

BullionStar

This is a significant knowledge gap that needs to be addressed—as it contributes a big part to why will-writing remains to be a taboo topic amongst most in Singapore, with 56% of adult Singaporeans reporting that they have not made a will.
Will writing is not only crucial, but also a surprisingly simpler process compared to all other aspects of financial planning. The quick questionnaire below will help you unpack the seemingly mysterious concept of will-writing.

Question 1. Which of these is closest to the sum left unclaimed …

DBS Group Holdings share price in India adventure

DBS Group Holdings share price

Since early November 2020, DBS Group Holdings share price went on an explosive run, surging from $20.35 to a high of $25.00 on 23 November. The driving factors for the bullish run of DBS Group Holdings share price were the excellent 3rd quarter financial result, the 95% efficacy of COVID-19 vaccine trial and Joe Biden being confirmed as the new President of United States.

Nonetheless, DBS Group Holdings share price turned cold turkey after the stunning announcement of a proposed merger of its wholly owned subsidiary, DBS Bank India Limited (DBIL), with the ailing Lakshmi Vilas Bank. Market reactions were mixed, causing DBS Group Holdings share price to lose steam.

Keppel REIT share price to explode with special dividends?

Keppel REIT share price

My last article on Keppel REIT share price was in October 2019. Obviously, that was before the implosion of COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, the landscape has changed drastically and Keppel REIT share price was not spared from the unfolding events.

Recently, the management team provided a business update to the local finance bloggers community. I had the privilege to attend the briefing and had the opportunity to gain a deeper insight into this leading commercial REIT. For the longest time, I have been interested in investing in an S-REIT. In this article, I will share the investment merits and cons of Keppel REIT share price.

Keppel REIT share price

In the previous update, I have shared that the management had been aggressively buying back units from the market. Since then, the management went on to conduct even more units buybacks in 2020. The amount of units buybacks was truly breath-taking – at 95.3 million units since 3QFY2018. The massive units buybacks provided critical support for the stock as Keppel REIT share price bounced from $0.90 on 24 March to a high of $1.20 on 10 June 2020.

While it is very common for listed companies to conduct shares …

Sembcorp share price dances with potential India IPO

Sembcorp share price

Post-demerger with Sembcorp Marine, Sembcorp share price turned bullish to hit a high of $1.69 on 13 November. Within a span of merely two months, Sembcorp share price rose a stunning 44%, making this counter one of the best stocks, if not the best, in Singapore Exchange.

Could rumours of the blockbuster listing of subsidiary, Sembcorp Energy India Limited (SEIL), sparked the explosive rally of Sembcorp share price? Even if the IPO did not materialize in 2020, the release of SEIL’s half yearly result on 13 November certainly gave Sembcorp share price plenty of boost.

Sembcorp Industries share price will hit $3.00

Sembcorp Industries to smash $3.00 with India IPO?

Sembcorp Industries share price to hit $5.00 after demerger?

Sembcorp share price

SEIL announced a net profit of Rs3.57 billion ($55 million) for 1HFY2020, reversing losses of Rs164 million ($3 million) in 1HFY2019. The financial result of SEIL is certainly encouraging and will surely lend support to the IPO as it indicates that the market condition has improved in India. Against this backdrop, Sembcorp share price turned bullish for the couple of months.

In October, the management also implemented a slew of initiatives that helped to push up …

Wilmar share price to explode with India IPO?

Wilmar share price

Following the listing of subsidiary Yihai Kerry Arawana (YKA), Wilmar share price surged to a high of $4.70 before plunging to a low of $4.00 in October. The fall of Wilmar share price confounded plenty of investors as the market capitalization of Wilmar represented half of its value of holding in YKA at the point of the IPO. This is indeed a very strange phenomenon!

Wilmar share price is prone to movement of the big boys because in FY2019 annual report, the number of shares held by public constituted just only 28%. This means that the major shareholders have a major influence on the share price movement. Indeed, Wilmar share price took a beating in August 2020 when major shareholder, Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), sold 170.5 million Wilmar at $4.40. In addition to that, ADM had entered into a stock-borrow arrangement in respect of its Wilmar shares in connection with its offering of US$300,000,000 zero coupon exchangeable bonds.

Wilmar share price

To halt the rapid slump of Wilmar share price, the management went on the offensive to rescue the stock – ranging from shares buybacks, announcement of special dividend, insider buying and reporting a stellar 3rd quarter …

OCBC share price to explode to $10.00?

OCBC share price

Those who stay invested during crises will be duly rewarded while those who didn’t would look back and rue missing the opportunities. In this context, will OCBC share price explode to $10.00 in the coming weeks?

With Joe Biden being confirmed as the new President of United States, many investors expect a bull run in the stock market. In my view, it does not matter whether Donald Trump or Joe Biden becomes the next President because the result will only remove uncertainties for institutional players to return to the stock market. Post-election, investors should be looking at earning growth among companies. In this regard, OCBC share price could be poised for an upturn.

3rd quarter business update could be the pivotal catalyst that sets OCBC share price on fire. The latest financial report showed that the venerable bank recorded net profit of $1.03 billion for 3QFY2020, representing 41% higher than the previous quarter. The higher net profit was driven by lower …

DBS Group Holdings share price riding the storm

DBS Group Holdings share price

Following the release of 3rd quarter business update, it seems to me that DBS Group Holdings share price is set for a much-anticipated rebound. The latest report showed that total allowances for 3rd quarter shrank to $554 million. This amount is significantly lower than the $1.94 billion recorded for the 1st half.

The drop in allowances could spark the revival for DBS Group Holdings share price as the bank navigates the fallout from COVID-19. In my opinion, this is the best window of opportunity to invest in this counter as Singapore’s GDP expanded by 7.9% on quarter in the third quarter of 2020. As DBS is the biggest lender in Singapore, DBS Group Holdings share price will be among the first stocks to benefit from the country’s recovery.

CapitaLand share price plunged 11% within a month

CapitaLand share price

Has CapitaLand share price bottomed? October had been a terrifying month for CapitaLand share price as the counter crashed 11%, falling from $2.80 to a low of $2.50. What has led to the turbulence for CapitaLand share price?

In my point of view, the bearish form of CapitaLand share price could be attributed to more of a combination of factors than a sole underlying problem. The build-up to the US Presidential Election had led to a very volatile stock market in October. Most of the Straits Times Index (STI) components suffered carnage and CapitaLand share price was no exception.

The second factor that punctured the form of CapitaLand share price could be the fallout from COVID-19 pandemic.

For example, Raffles City reported lower revenue and net property income mainly due to grant of $15.2 million rent waivers to tenants. 4 November will be destiny day for CapitaLand share price as the …

Singtel share price in state of emergency

Singtel share price

What a disaster for Singtel share price. Investors must have thought they have seen the worst of Singtel share price when global stock markets plunged on 23 March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Most stocks had since recovered from that dark chapter but Singtel share price continued its dismal run. What the hell has happened to this leading light of SGX?

Singtel share price

Amid the devastating meltdown of Singtel share price, the telco announced the retirement of CEO Chua Song Koong effective on 1 January 2021. That fateful announcement provided some temporary relief for Singtel share price, which surged from $2.15 on 1 October to $2.20 on 14 October. But sentiments continued to be sour for this counter as Singtel share price continued its bearish run thereafter. Is this really the end of the road for Singtel share price?

OCBC share price held ransom by Great Eastern

OCBC share price

Is it the right time and right place for OCBC share price? At Price/Book Value of 0.805, OCBC share price is trading below its book value, no thanks to the fallout from COVID-19 pandemic. Yet against the backdrop of Singapore’s Phase 3 reopening, will OCBC share price be able to ride on the coming recovery?

On a quarter-to-quarter basis, Singapore’s GDP expanded by 7.9% due to the robust showing from the manufacturing sector. Being the bellwether of the economy, bank stocks are proxy to the country’s economic condition. In this regard, the coming third quarter business update will be a baptism of fire for OCBC share price as investors will be scrutinizing the performance of OCBC’s insurance subsidiary, Great Eastern.

OCBC share price

What can float a boat can also sink it. While Great Eastern Holdings had provided OCBC an unassailable edge over DBS and UOB for decades, the volatile financial performances of the insurance company had wrecked OCBC share price in recent years. Coupled with COVID-19, it is indeed the perfect storm for both OCBC and Great Eastern.

Year-to-date, OCBC share price had been hammered left, right and centre by the devastating COVID-19 pandemic. OCBC share price …

On 15 October, short selling activities on Wilmar share price surged to a whopping 10.5 million, nearly 10 times the daily average volume for this counter. So while the Chinese investors popped the champagne over the successful YKA IPO, investors of Wilmar were confounded over the crash of Wilmar share price.

Wilmar share price

In fact, the shorting against Wilmar share price had been timed to perfection as it occurred on a Thursday. Typically, the short sellers would want to close their positions before the weekend in order to avoid any uncertainties. So in the coming …

Sunningdale Tech share price to smash $2.50?

Sunningdale Tech share price

Is it light at end of tunnel for Sunningdale Tech? FY2019 had been an absolute nightmare for the Group as the precision plastic component supplier recorded its lowest profit in the past 5 years. However, based on the recent financial performance, it appears to me that the management has achieved an impressive turnaround. Will Sunningdale Tech share price storm to $2.50?

Talks of Sunningdale Tech reclaiming its former glory are not without basis as several catalysts swing in favour of Sunningdale Tech share price. Based on the recent 1HFY2020 result, net asset value (NAV) stood at $2.00. This means that Sunningdale Tech share price is being traded below its book value.

Sunningdale Tech share price

Secondly, Quarz Capital had increased its stake to become a substantial shareholder. This is definitely an intriguing development for Sunningdale Tech as Quarz Capital is known for being a activist fund which unlocked value for shareholders. In 2018, Quarz Capital had called on the management to return more cash to shareholders.

Then, on 9 September, another intriguing development unfolded for Sunningdale Tech as the Group announced that “Company had been approached in relation to a possible transaction involving the shares of the Company”

Wilmar share price to rocket to $7?

Wilmar share price

Will Wilmar share price recapture its former glory and hit $7? The last time that Wilmar share price was trading at such bandwidth was more than a decade ago. That was the land before time.

Mid October of 2020 seems to be an auspicious period for mega deals. You have the Ant Group IPO and the merger of Capitamall Trust and CapitaLand Commercial Trust. And then there is Wilmar’s mega listing of  Yihai Kerry Arawana Holdings Co., Ltd (YKA) on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange ChiNext Board. Question now is: will Wilmar share price hit $7 in the coming days?

In January 2020, I wrote that Wilmar share price had bottomed out and was poised for a major surge because of the catalyst of the China unit IPO. However, COVID-19 pandemic came along and walloped Wilmar share price to rock bottom price of $2.90.

Since March 2020, Wilmar share price steadily climbed to almost hit $5.00 in August when another toxic development knocked the wind out of Wilmar share price. On 20 August, major shareholder, Archer Daniels Midland, had sold …

CMT share price to collapse to $1.10?

CMT share price

Is it a match made in heaven or the start of a nightmare? On 29 September, unitholders of CapitaLand Mall Trust (CMT) and CapitaLand Commercial Trust (CCT) voted in favour of the merger between the two REITs. However, CMT share price fell from $2.00 on 30 September to $1.90 on 2 October. What on earth happened to CMT share price?

Capitamall Trust (CMT) share price in berserk form!

CapitaLand Mall Trust unit price in explosive form

CMT share price

Apparently, some investors were puzzled by the bearish form of CMT share price and wrote in to seek my insights. Hands on heart, I view the merger positively because it will lead to the largest REIT in Singapore and provides higher trading liquidity. The issue now is whether the acquisition takes place at the right time.

With CMT struggling to deal with the fallout from COVID-19 pandemic, it seems that CMT could be biting more than it could chew. In fact, on 1 October, Moody’s downgraded the credit ratings for CMT from A2 to A3. The downgrade soured the outlook for CMT share price.

To support the acquisition, each CCT unit would be acquired at 0.720 new CMT Units …

Ant IPO and Temasek Holdings

Ant IPO

Hailed as the biggest IPO in financial history, the upcoming Ant IPO has generated plenty of hype among the investment community. What makes Ant IPO so unique is the dual listing in Shanghai’s Star Market (China’s answer to US Nasdaq) and Hong Kong Exchange. The listing also takes place against the backdrop of a bitter trade war between US and China.

Many analysts had valued Ant IPO between USD250 billion to USD300 billion. At such valuations, Ant IPO would easily surpass Aramco’s USD29 billion IPO in December 2019. Given the investment moats and financial performances of Ant Group, such valuations are not surprising to me.

The flagship product of Ant is Alipay, a super online payment app. The scale of Alipay is simply mind-boggling – 711 million monthly  active users, 80 million monthly active merchants and more than 2000 partner financial institutions. Essentially, Ant is a fintech but unlike many technology companies like Uber or Grab, Ant is very profitable. This is one of most appealing aspects of the Ant IPO.

Ant’s digital finance business in China is also unparalleled, occupying the top market positions in China for its CreditTech, InvestmentTech and InsureTech. Based on …

Keppel share price crashed to 11 year low

Keppel share price

What a disaster for Keppel share price! On 24 September, Keppel share price plunged to $4.10, the lowest in the past decade. The devastating spell of value destruction must have left a bitter taste in investors’ mouth. After all, Keppel share price had enjoyed a splendid run, surging from $5.80 to $7.00 when Temasek Holdings announced $4.1 billion conditional offer to control Keppel Corp in October 2019.

Keppel share price

Indeed, the crisis of confidence in Keppel share price is largely attributed to the bombshell announcement on 1 August 2020 by Temasek Holdings not to proceed with the partial offer for Keppel. The investment company had invoked the pre-condition of material adverse change in the Group’s financial performance and walked away from the deal.

Keppel share price in winter wonderland with Temasek Holdings

Can Keppel share price meet the great expectations of Temasek Holdings?

The dramatic turn of event had led to the collapse of Keppel share price, which fell from $5.40 to the present abysmal level. Whether the current Keppel share price represents a golden buying opportunity is subject to debate. But based on the market sentiments, this counter should be bearish for at least the next …

Sembcorp Industries share price will hit $3.00

Sembcorp Industries share price

It could be the blockbuster IPO of the year. While Singtel is singing the blues with its India’s misadventure, Sembcorp Industries share price has been in golden form lately with its potential listing of its India asset – Sembcorp Energy India Ltd (SEIL).

Every dog has its day and confidence means everything in the stock market. Currently, Sembcorp Industries share price appears to be enjoying a splendid run since the fateful demerger from Sembcorp Marine.  Can the leading energy and urban development group achieve a critical business turnaround?

Sembcorp Industries to smash $3.00 with India IPO?

Sembcorp Industries share price to hit $5.00 after demerger?

Sembcorp Industries share price

Within the SGX Mainboard, business turnarounds are far and a few. One of the rare exceptional cases is AEM Holdings, which I had previously invested in (and subsequently sold off). Sembcorp Industries share price could have the opportunity to join this exclusive club following the culmination of a series of bold business moves. In fact, I am convinced that Sembcorp Industries share price will hit $3.00 in the coming months.

With Temasek Holdings holding 50% stake, it is only a matter of when, and not if, that Sembcorp Industries share …

Sembcorp Industries share price to smash $3.00 with India IPO?

Sembcorp Industries share price

On 16 September 2020, I invested in Sembcorp Industries (SCI). My entry price for Sembcorp Industries share price was $1.35. The decision to enter this counter was after my research done for my previous article “Sembcorp Industries share price to hit $5 after demerger?”

In my previous article, I shared that the catalyst for Sembcorp Industries share price is not the demerger of the loss-making Sembcorp Marine. To truly unlock the full value of Sembcorp Industries share price, the management must continue its effort in recycle capital through its energy and urban assets. And one of the major catalysts for Sembcorp Industries share price is the listing of the India business unit, Sembcorp Energy India Ltd (SEIL).

Sembcorp Industries share price

According to a report written by Phillip Capital written on 9 September 2020, the estimated value of the listing is worth a staggering $1.8 billion. However, given the current climate, the IPO value should be at most $1.5 billion. With such tremendous catalyst, Sembcorp Industries share price could potentially hit $3.00. After all, Sembcorp Industries share price is traded at $2.13 as of 16 September 2020 post-SCM demerger ($1.34 + (4.911 x $0.16)).

According to the …

CapitaLand share price worth $5.00?

CapitaLand share price

Being a diversified real estate giant, CapitaLand needs no introduction. Question now is: does CapitaLand share price offer value? CapitaLand share price is now being traded at $2.75, representing Price/Book Value of just 0.557. This means that the book value should be about $5.00 per share. At current price level, this counter is indeed being traded at a massive discount, no thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic.

CapitaLand share price flying with Liang Court redevelopment

CapitaLand share price set for explosive bull run?

CapitaLand share price and the Golden Job

CapitaLand share price

Despite the damaging impact of COVID-19 pandemic, CapitaLand share price has been quite rock solid. If investors look back, this counter has not bombed out to the $1.85 level last seen during the Global Financial Crisis. In fact, the last time CapitaLand share was trading at current level was in 2015. Even during the March 2020 market rout, this counter only tanked to $2.60.

The resilient of CapitaLand share price is attributed to the strong institutional ownership – Temasek Holdings own 52% stake, while Blackrock holds 4.8%. Beyond the solid support from the big boys, I also noticed that ROE has steadily increased from 6.7% in …

AEM share price in crisis of confidence?

AEM share price

On 4 September, I sold off all my AEM shares when AEM share price was trading at $3.85. After factoring the dividends (May and August 2020) and the brokerage fees, the total returns amounted to $5,500. This returns represented 16% yield over a period of 5 months. The decision to exit this counter was partially due to the recent corrections in Dow Jones and Nasdaq.

AEM share price

Will I regret selling AEM shares? After all, I had been so bullish with this counter for the past few months. To be honest, I don’t know the answer. All I know is that with a 5-year beta of 2.13, AEM share price is much more volatile than Singapore bank stocks. So even though the fundamentals of AEM remain strong, its stock price will be extremely volatile in the near term.

Given the volatility of AEM share price, I guess I will have plenty of sleepless nights if I continue to hold on to the shares. I would rather cash in now and live …

Singtel share price crashed to 12-year low

Singtel share price

On 3 September 2020, US market crashed with Dow Jones tumbling more than 800 points while Nasdaq collapsed nearly 5%. Is this the end of the US stock market rally? Over in Singapore, Singtel share price is also not spared from the bloodbath as the counter crashed to a 12-year low.

Intel share price in 5G evolution

Sembcorp share price

Amid the on-going bull run of technology stocks, the ailing Intel share price stood out like a sore thumb. With a P/E ratio of just 9.3, Intel share price is currently being traded at levels way below its competitors, (e.g. AMD and Qualcomm). AMD share price is being traded at P/E ratio of 163 while Qualcomm share price is traded at 50. As one of the leading lights of Nasdaq, has Intel share price lost its shine?

AEM share price to rocket to $5.00?

Year-to-date, Intel share price has fallen by 16%. This is in deep contrast to the PHLX Semiconductor Sector Index (SOX), which soared 20% year-to-date. Furthermore, Nasdaq index has soared to record highs for the past few weeks. So the fall of Intel share price must have given investors plenty of sleepless nights.

The plunge of Intel share price was largely attributed to the delayed release of its next-generation 7nm chips. Prior to this event, Intel share price got hit when Apple announced that it would ditch Intel chips for its Mac computers. Following these bombshell …

Accordia Golf Trust share price in final fantasy?

Accordia Golf Trust share price

Should investors of Accordia Golf Trust run for their lives or fight to their very end by blocking the upcoming assets divestment deal? On 29 June, the trust announced that it is selling its 88 golf courses for $804.1 million. And then on 7 August, the trust came back with a revised offer of $848.4 million. The announcements sent Accordia Golf Trust share price to hit a three-year high.

Accordia Golf Trust share price

Accordia Golf Trust debut in SGX mainboard only in 2014. So the divestment announcement should come as a shock to many investors as it is proposed that trust to be wind up after the divestment of the golf assets. Nevertheless, the proposed divestment did help to lift Accordia Golf Trust share price from $0.44 on 19 March to the recent $0.74.

The total distributions issued amounted to 31.42 cents. So for those who had held the units till now, the returns would have been quite decent. But I would not say that this counter is an ideal dividend play because Accordia Golf Trust share price has been pretty volatile in recent years.

As a matter of fact, it appears to me that Accordia Golf Trust is …

AEM share price ready for Nasdaq listing?

AEM share price

It’s a major coup. On 24 August 2020, AEM Holdings appointed Samer Kabbani as Chief Technology Officer (CTO). Amid the global downturn due to the fallout from COVID-19 pandemic, many companies are downsizing and retrenching staff. AEM bucks the trend to continue its aggressive expansion. Investors reacted well to the news and gave AEM share price yet another short-lived lift.
