img_20191204_192759Geoff gave a very comprehensive and succinct presentation on how different sectors performed, not just in Singapore, but the world as well. REITs in particular, have given very good returns for 2019.

You can find the full presentation here.

Next, we had Desmond from Everest Fortune Group, also known as EFG on InvestingNote where he does daily technical ideas and calls. Follow him here.

img_20191204_194505Desmond gave the technical outlook for both the Hang Seng Index and Straits Times Index. Based on technical analysis aspect, it does not particularly bode well for both the indexes for 2020.

New Oriental Education – This Company Grows at 138% In The Past 12 Months (Guest Post)

New Oriental Education – This Company Grows at 138% In The Past 12 Months (Guest Post)

This is a company that has returned 138% in the last 12 months for investors as the company is looking to grow even more in the next few years which spells opportunities if you are looking into a growth play.

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.

The company last closed at it’s historical high at $122.72 and it is continuing to grow at a very fast double digit topline growth in the next few years.

Company Overview

Founded in 1993, New Oriental Education & Tech Group (NYSE: EDU) is the largest provider of private educational services in China. The company has an extensive network of over 1,261 learning centres that span across 56 different cities. New Oriental was the first successful Chinese educational institution to be listed in the New York Stock Exchange through their public offering back in 2016 and it has a market capitalization of over USD14 billion today.

The company has a substantial presence in Beijing, Shanghai and Wuhan, where combined they have a total presence of 245 learning centres, or close to 20% of their entire portfolio.

Beijing: Beijing has one of the fastest growing population in China, as the number of people living in the city grew from 13.5m in 2000 to 20.1m in 2019 (source: worldpopulationreview). In terms of GDP per capita, Beijing has also outperformed the rest of the cities by growing at more than 8% per annum, despite the ongoing Trade Wars threatening the slowdown of their growing nation.

Shanghai: Shanghai currently ranks first in terms of population density as the modern revolutionized city appeals to International expats and locals to come to Shanghai for both work and live. It currently houses a population of about 26m but has the infrastructure capacity to double its living population in the city to 50m by 2050 (source: shine.cn) through their urbanization transformation in the region and strong economic growth.

Wuhan: Wuhan is a surprise inclusion because of its strong economic growth and infrastructure transformation over the years, the city has recorded one of the highest rate of historic population growth over the years (source: wiki-wuhan). To date, their population stands at about 10.6m, which is about half the population size of Beijing.

Financial Performance

Revenue has increased by 26.5% year on year from $2.4m in FY2018 to $3.1m in FY2019 and has grown at a CAGR of 19.8% over 5 years.

This is mainly due to both the organic aspect of growth (152 new facilities and learning centres added in FY2019) as well as inorganic growth through the successful implementation of the optimization strategy coming in from the K-12 After-School Tutoring division and U-Can Middle School, which grow by 28.5% and 27.2% respectively.

Gross Profit margins continued to remain resilient at 55.5% in FY2019, despite coming in slightly lower than the 5-year average of 57.3%.

As the company seek to embark on its expansion plan, the company has correspondingly incurred higher costs for marketing and other SG&A related costs such as salary and rent as there are higher headcounts to account for.

Interviews with A Finalist of SG Active Trading Tournament: Justin Tay

Interviews with A Finalist of SG Active Trading Tournament: Justin Tay

This mini-interview series is to showcase finalists of the tournament and what propels them to be able to trade well.

This post was originally posted here. 

Today we have Justin, who is a Top 10 Finalist in the ongoing Final Round of the SG Active Trading Tournament, trading under his moniker @gangel. He has risen to the Top 10 by beating 2,000 other participants of the tournament.

gangel

We asked the following questions and this is what he had to say:

How many years have you been trading and which markets do you usually trade?

Justin: I have been trading for 6 years, mainly focused on SGX. Just started US market and HK market recently due to the higher liquidity.

What’s your profession?

Justin: I am currently in my final year of my PhD studies. I am also a licensed pharmacist and work part time in one of the retail pharmacy chains.

Wow, that’s impressive! How did you start trading and what got you started? 

Justin: I started trading under the influence of my dad, who gave me a small start up capital to trade. He taught me some basic trading tips like price action and volume. From there I went on to learning how to do some basic chart and learn about some indicators. Some of which I have adopted ever since.

So what’s your usual trading plan like?

Justin: Usually I will decide on how big I want to trade, whether I have the capital to pick up or just playing contra before entering a trade. I like to make use of the GTM/GTD function so that my lots will be in the front of the queue. I also tend to queue slightly below the resistance zone so it has a higher chance of getting filled.

Then how do you usually determine an entry for a particular trade?

Justin: I do so by identifying support zones either through trendline support, moving average support so forth or wait 1 day bounce off from support zone for confirmation. On top of that, I will also try to look for signs of reversal with some of the indicators to convince myself to go in for the trade.

How do you usually determine an exit for a particular trade?

Justin: I do so usually by identifying resistance zones, either by historical high or trendline resistance. or when the tides change very suddenly.

As this tournament focuses on trading Daily Leverage Certificates (DLC), what is your experience trading DLC? 

Justin: It’s like a double-edged sword: it can magnify your profits or losses very quickly.

Finally, what would you say to new traders who want to trade well?

Justin: It’s really important to start from the basics of support and resistance, learn how to read the graphs and prepare to stop loss if the trade do not go in your favour. Once the price has moved up from your entry price, can consider doing a trailing stop loss strategy to reduce your losses.

If you like this interview, cast your vote for Justin for the Most Popular Trader Award and stand a chance to win an Apple Watch Series 5 worth $600!
