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.

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

Upcoming Workshop: Applying The Multiple Time Frame Analysis To Stocks

Upcoming Workshop: Applying The Multiple Time Frame Analysis To Stocks

What Is Multiple Time-Frame Analysis?

Multiple time-frame analysis involves monitoring the same currency pair across different frequencies (or time compressions). While there is no real limit as to how many frequencies can be monitored or which specific ones to choose, there are general guidelines that most practitioners will follow.

Typically, using three different periods gives a broad enough reading on the market, while using fewer than this can result in a considerable loss of data, and using more typically provides redundant analysis. When choosing the three time frequencies, a simple strategy can be to follow a “rule of four.” This means that a medium-term period should first be determined and it should represent a standard as to how long the average trade is held. From there, a shorter term time frame should be chosen and it should be at least one-fourth the intermediate period (for example, a 15-minute chart for the short-term time frame and 60-minute chart for the medium or intermediate time frame). Through the same calculation, the long-term time frame should be at least four times greater than the intermediate one (so, keeping with the previous example, the 240-minute or four-hour chart would round out the three time frequencies).

This method can also work for the stock market, and this technical analysis workshop for intermediate traders will show you how.

In this workshop, you’ll learn about:
✔ Understanding the types of markets and how it impacts your strategies
✔ Incorporating different timeframes into your trading to maximise your trades
✔ The one most important thing that professionals use to test their and verify their strategies
✔ How to utilise two simple technical analysis tools effectively that usually outperform complicated tools
✔ Habits and daily regimes of successful traders that every trader needs to know and follow

There will also be live chart trading examples to highlight the importance of multiple time frame analysis, that can be applied for the stock market.

You can look forward to upgrade your trading skillset in this 3-hour workshop on 2 Nov, Saturday 10am – 2pm.

Top 29 Warren Buffett Inspirational Quotes Of All Time (Guest Post)

Top 29 Warren Buffett Inspirational Quotes Of All Time (Guest Post)

Almost every investor has heard of the legendary investor Warren Buffett before. This is not only due to his exemplary investment track record, but also due to his sound advice on life and business in general.

 

This post was originally posted here. The writer, SmallCapAsia is a veteran community member and blogger on InvestingNote, with 700+ followers.

With that in mind, we have come up with a set of Warren Buffett’s Inspirational Quotes Of All Time below:

Warren Buffett Quotes on Life

1. Aim High But Don’t Over-Reach– “I don’t try to jump over 7-foot bars; I look for 1-foot bars that I can step over.”

2. Aim Well– “To swim a fast 100 metres, it’s better to swim with the tide than to work on your stroke.”

3. Focus On Your Goals– “I’ve often felt there might be more to be gained by studying business failures than business successes.”

4. Be Honest – “It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.”

7. Ignore Mr. Market’s Moods

“The market is there as a reference point to see if anybody is offering to do anything foolish. When we invest in stocks, we invest in businesses.”

“(John Maynard) Keynes essentially said, don’t try and figure out what the market is doing. Figure out a business you understand, and concentrate.”

“The future is never clear; you pay a very high price in the stock market for a cheery consensus. Uncertainty actually is the friend of the buyer of long-term values.”

One of my reader that I met up with some time ago asked me these 2 deeper question about retirement:

1.What amount of principal will you feel comfortable to quit the job & just collect investment dividends, with a not-too-spendthrift lifestyle?

2.How much to “reserve” for medical costs?

I thought it is easier to tackle in this week that requires some decompression.

How to Get Rich (Realistically) and Stay Wealthy (Guest Post)

How to Get Rich (Realistically) and Stay Wealthy (Guest Post)

The majority of the rich who got really wealthy took calculated risks. They also had the foresight to see things that a lot of us would not be able to see.

Rich people surround themselves with people more competent then them in areas they are not good at.

Most of the time, the wealthy was also able to execute their plans very well. You will also find them having the ability listen to others when it is time to listen. But be steadfast when they needed to.

I got very little of these traits.

And maybe that is why I am not rich (by today’s much higher standards). I worked in a firm where we steward our client’s wealth carefully, so I know where I stand in the spectrum of people who are rich and poor.

But I do think that I have enough wealth for myself though. Enough for me to have a conversation with you on this topic.
