Children’s Society Dinner 2019

Children’s Society Dinner 2019

We had the honour to attend the annual appreciation dinner for the 1000 Enterprises For Children-In-Need Programme.

Even though we’re a growing Fintech Startup, we’ve been with 1000 Enterprises For Children-In-Need Programme supporting the Children’s Society for 4 years now.

Guest-of-honour, Deputy Prime Minister (DPM) Teo Chee Hean gave a heartfelt speech to the audience, where he addressed the need for corporations and businesses to support this charity programme. This programme is helping the under-privileged children under the Singapore Children’s Society, who will become the next-generation pillars of our society.

We’ve supported this cause since 2015 with some of the proceeds from the sales of Stockcham’s Trading Guide eBook.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who purchased Stockcham’s Trading Guide for the support.

3 Dirt Cheap Companies With High Dividends

3 Dirt Cheap Companies With High Dividends

Everyone loves to shop for cheap stocks but wouldn’t it be fantastic that you buy dirt cheap stocks and yet still enjoy high dividends while waiting for your capital gains to come?

 

sg

We happen to find 3 stocks with such characteristics; check them out below:

This post was originally posted here. The writer is a veteran community member and blogger on InvestingNote, with username known as Smallcapasia, with more than 500 followers.

#1 Willas-Array Electronics Holdings Ltd (SGX: BDR)

Willas-Array with major markets in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan is principally engaged in the distribution of electronic components for use in various industries as well as the provision of engineering solutions.

It also has long standing relationships with 20 internationally reputable principle suppliers and carries a wide product mix over 10,000 product items and cater to over 3,000 customers.

The company has declared a final dividend of HK$0.42 on 30 May 2018 for the financial year of 2017. The dividend yield based on the price of SGD$0.595 equates to whopping 12%. The company has been distributing out dividends from 2015 to 2018 with an exception of 2016.

Year 2015 2016 2017 2018
Dividend Yield 6.43% 5.34% 12.05%

From a valuation stand point, the company is cheap valuing at P/E 5.04x and Price to Book Value of 0.44x.

That said, the high dividend might not be sustainable given the cashflow used in operating activities for the past 2 years (2017 & 2018) have been negative. Furthermore, the debt to equity ratio for the company is 2.11 and on the high side.

#2 Ossia International Ltd (SGX: 008)

Ossia has started as a footwear manufacturer but has grown into a regional distributor and retailer of lifestyle products in the Asia Pacific region.

The company has exclusive distribution, license and franchise rights for the Fashion apparels e.g. Elle, Bags/accessories e.g. Tumi, Hedgren etc and Sports apparels e.g. Columbia. The company also has a 19.8% stake in Pertama Holdings Pte Ltd which owns the Harvey Norman retails stores in Singapore and Malaysia.

The company has declared dividend of 4 cents on 31 July and 6 cents on 5th December 2018. Based on the current share price of $0.10, the dividend yield is a high 10%. The company has not distributed any dividends from 2015 to 2017 as net income is negative during this period.

Year 2015 2016 2017 2018
Dividend Yield 10%

The company is cheap valuing at P/E ratio of 4.72x and having a Price to Book ratio of 0.64x.

The company has no track record distributing dividend consistently and 2019 results has not been good so far. However, with the closure of under performing brands and disposal of properties, there might be a chance for the company to dish out yet another fat dividend.

#3 Serial System Ltd (S69)

Serial System is involved in the distribution of electronic and electrical components, and trading and distribution of fast-moving consumer goods, photographic and timepiece products.

The company has been consistently distributing cash dividends from 2015 to 2018 and the dividend yield ranges from 8.09% to 10.12% for the previous financial year.

Year 2015 2016 2017 2018
Dividend Yield 8.09% 4.76% 2.80% 10.12%

The company’s valuation is cheap with P/E ratio of 3.39x and a Price to Book ratio of 0.42x.

The cashflow from operating activities has been mixed for the past the few years. Moving forward, we are cautiously optimistic that the company will continue the dividend distributions but the dividend yield will vary depending on the company profit and free cashflow.

We’ve been featured on Lianhe Zaobao 联合早报!

We’ve been featured on Lianhe Zaobao 联合早报!

As a part of the investing ecosystem in Singapore, we’re proud to have been featured on Lianhe Zaobao 联合早报 on 24th February 2019!

InvestingNote Lianhe Zaobao 联合早报 Feature
InvestingNote Lianhe Zaobao 联合早报 Feature on 24th Feb 2019

InvestingNote was conceived on the idea of active and constructive sharing between passionate investors, while it allows new investors to leverage on other investors who are adept and more experienced.

We once dreamed of a platform where investors can help and learn from each other, to become better in every individual’s investment journey.

In the investing world, there are many stakeholders: financial institutions, brokers, analysts, fund managers, financial educators, financial bloggers, influencers, micro bloggers and retail investors. Our aim was also to connect the dots between all of them.

We believe strongly that everyone deserves an adequate financial and investment literacy. And all the more for retail investors. We believe that you don’t necessarily need to pay for expensive courses to become better at investing; there are experienced investors out there who are willing to share for free. Helping investors get better is the key driver of our platform.

Over the years, this dream has steadily been realised…as we’re the first and the largest social network for investors in Singapore, with many of our users coming from all walks of the investing world. One of the prominent users in our community is Terence Wong, founder of Azure Capital.

Like we mentioned earlier, all you need is an email, self-created username and password. That’s all it takes for you to join our community of the most active stock investors in Singapore.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all our community members who’re already part of the community and who’ve supporting us since day one.

See their reviews on our FB page.

Other than just stock discussions, we also have other channels like FX, Personal Finance discussions as we mentioned here.
