Why OCBC Q3FY19 Profit Results Might Fall Double-Digit Percentage YoY (Guest Post)

Why OCBC Q3FY19 Profit Results Might Fall Double-Digit Percentage YoY (Guest Post)

OCBC is scheduled to announced its results on the 5th Nov (Tuesday morning) before the start of market trading.

This post was originally posted here. The writer, Brian Halim is a veteran community member and blogger on InvestingNote, with username known as 3Fs and 1800+ followers.

UOB announced its Q3 results this morning which gives a big hint of what is to come for the other two banks.

The drop in NIM and increase in NPA is worst than expected, and if not for the loan growth segment in the Singapore that helps, it might look like a worsen Q3.

This is 5 reasons why I think OCBC Q3 FY19 profit results are going to fall double-digit in terms of percentage year on year.

1) Net Interest Margin Compressed QoQ and YoY

In FY18, OCBC’s Net Interest Income contributes 60% to their total revenue while Non-Interest Income contributes the rest of the other 40%, so we’ll approximately use that as a gauge.

Q2FY19 Net Interest Income came in at $1,588m while Q3FY18 Net Interest Income came in at $1,505m.

Investing Workshop: Basics of ETF Investing & Constructing an ETF Portfolio

Investing Workshop: Basics of ETF Investing & Constructing an ETF Portfolio

What is an ETF?

An exchange-traded fund (ETF) is a type of security that involves a collection of securities—such as stocks—that often tracks an underlying index, although they can invest in any number of industry sectors or use various strategies.

To those unfamiliar, investing in ETFs can seem complicated and confusing. But an ETF is a marketable security, you can buy and sell them through the stock market just like an ordinary share.

Often touted as a low-cost and efficient way to get instant diversification, ETFs have been increasingly popular. Some well-known ETFs like the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY), which tracks the S&P 500 Index, gave a return of more than 70% in just 5 years.

Investment guru Warren Buffett himself has also specifically recommended ETFs as a way to boost retirement savings.

This comprehensive workshop we’re having in partnership with FSMOne will demystify what ETFs are and equip you with the knowledge to enhance your portfolio.

Is a 90% return in ONE SINGLE trade in a week even possible?

Yes it apparently is.

Sometime last week, one of the participants with the username @minci in the SG Active Trading Tournament had a 92.80% return in ONE SINGLE trade.

How to Capitalise on the recent Keppel Corp News

How to Capitalise on the recent Keppel Corp News

Last week, the major news was Temasek’s plan to offer Keppel shareholders $7.35 per share, in cash, to buy 554.9 million shares or 30.55% of Keppel.

 

Related imageImage result for keppel corp

This partial offer will raise its stake in Keppel from the current 20.45% to 51%.

Temasek will be doing this through its wholly owned subsidiary Kyanite Investment Holdings.

Prior to this news which was released on 22 October Tuesday, Keppel’s shares were halted on 21 October Monday.

When the trading halt was lifted on Tuesday, after the news was announced, Keppel’s stock soared more than 10%.

If you’d bought the Keppel Corp Long DLC on 22 October – it gave a 70% in just one day!

However, this is where it gets interesting – even if you got in late, by buying the 5x Long DLC on 22 October AFTER the news and the stock shooting up, the DLC still could have made you more than 20% within a few days.

This is the magnitude of serious returns we’re talking about.

So what’s this all mean for retail investors?

A Daily Leverage Certificate (DLC) is a type of leveraged product listed on the SGX which allows you to get leveraged return of an underlying single stock or index. The leverage is fixed every day, e.g. for a 5x Long DLC, every 1% movement in the mother share will lead to 5% movement in the LongDLC price.

So whenever you see a short-term trading opportunity, e.g. stock about to break out, index reaching support level etc., you can use DLC as a tool to get leveraged return. This recent scenario of Keppel exemplifies this perfectly.

4 key reasons why you should use DLCs:

  1. Simple trading instrument to get leveraged return of popular stocks and indices from Singapore and Hong Kong
  2. No account opening process required; trade it like a stock – simply go to your stock broker account to trade DLCs (subject to SIP qualification)
  3. LongDLC and ShortDLC – two types of DLCs allow you to gain from both ups and downs of the Underlying stock or index
  4. Lower barrier of entry – one lot of DLC is 100 shares, and the unit price is usually much cheaper than the mother share, allowing lower barrier of entry and more flexible allocation of your investment capital

Here’s the full list of DLC & the corresponding underlying securities every investor and trader needs to know: https://dlc.socgen.com/en/product/search

Our ongoing simulation competition for you to experience trading DLC with up to $15,000 worth of prizes for grab: http://bit.ly/SGATT2019
