The Beginner’s Guide to Understanding The 3 Financial Statements

The Beginner’s Guide to Understanding The 3 Financial Statements

All listed companies on SGX are mandated to report their financial performance periodically. Every quarter, companies must report their financial performance using a structured set of 3 financial statements. The financial statements adhere to international accounting standards and the local Singapore reporting standards have very similar formats making it easy for investors to review.

We decided contribute to the InvestingNote community with an educational piece to demystify the 3 financial statements.

When read with begin with A…B…C…, when we sing with begin with Do… Re…Me…

That at least how the song lyrics go.

But when we want to understand and assess the financials of a stock, we need to begin with the 3 financial statements, namely:

  • Balance Sheet (or Statement of Financial Position)
  • Income Statement (or Profit/Loss Statement)
  • Cash Flow Statement

Financial statements are reported based on time periods. By reviewing the 3 financial statements, investors are able to deduce the financial position of the business and how its financials have changed over time.

A few years ago, Ascendas REIT (5.8% dividend yield on my dividend stock tracker) decides to go forth and venture south to the land of Australia. They went in big, by enlarging their short land lease portfolio by 25% with Australia freehold assets.

They were able to finance such a large acquisition with a combination of rights issue, preferred shares and debt. The net effect is that they managed to lengthen the average land lease of the portfolio, the WALE, added some rental escalation and diversified the geographical region.

Some time ago this year, Mapletree Industrial REIT (6% dividend yield) announced that they would like to expand their mandate to manage data centers.

This evening, Mapletree Industrial REIT announced that they will be purchasing 14 data centers in the USA from the Target Portfolio of Carter Validus Mission Critical REIT.

Catching Falling Knife Of Blue Chip Stocks In Singapore Without Getting Sliced

This weekend, I will be sharing my thoughts on catching falling knife blue chips like M1, Star Hub, SPH and Raffles Medical Group. Usually, for stocks that fall so much within a short period, there is a reason and usually is due to change in fundamentals such as profit, growth or potential future earnings look bleak. In my opinion, if a retail investor who hates to see paper losses should wait a bit more before burning their cash as analyst reports are usually negative on them hence funds are selling. There is no point in catching a falling knife for them as there is a possibility of further pain in such shares. Is better in my opinion for such retail investors to chase high and buy when fundamental improve than to bottom fish. There is no one size fits all investment strategy for all. For me, I prefer to bottom fish as there is more upside potential but the risk is paper losses in some counters when they continue to fall.

ComfortDelGro(C52.SI): Grow or No Grow?

ComfortDelGro(C52.SI): Grow or No Grow?

ComfortDelgro will be announcing its 2Q result tomorrow on 11th August.

This column is written by @j_chou from InvestingNote.com.
@J_chou has an interest in global macro trends, financial markets and equity research and enjoys applying a combination of the three in his investments. His eventual investing goal is to manage a risk parity portfolio and achieve true financial freedom.

A component of the STI, Comfort Delgro was once championed as a stable dividend paying stock with a strong economic moat. Recent disruptions in the taxi industry have since changed that view, causing the stock to tumble to its 52-week low despite a relatively muted 1Q17 earnings report. Investors were likely concerned with the falling revenue and operating profits, mostly attributed to the decline from the taxi segment. The share price has since recovered slightly from its 52-week low to $2.310, but there is still an opportunity to capitalize on the negative sentiments towards the company. In this article I will look to determine whether Comfort Delgro is ripe for a contrarian play by assessing its long-term prospects from a bullish, neutral and bearish perspective for the next 5-10 years.

Comfort Delgro: Much more than just a taxi company

The distinct blue and yellow taxis that peppers the streets of Singapore may cause investors to mistake Comfort Delgro as primarily a taxi company.
