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.

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 Is So Damn Tough You Are Right (Guest Post)

Investing Is So Damn Tough You Are Right (Guest Post)

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

To say that this has been a tough year for investment is an understatement.

Investing, as a general form of growing your wealth is so damn tough that for one not to be losing money is sometimes already seen as a form of success.

I can totally relate why many people avoided them like a plague because contrary to many popular beliefs, it can jolly well diminish your money.

Imagine yourself being invested in Asian Pay TV Trust at the start of the year, having intrigued by its stuttering share price and a high dividend payout.

You might have thought the dividends they pay out is unsustainable hence you made a decision to project them conservatively at the fcf you think they can give out.

When APTT announces their recent results, the management is even more conservative than you are and slashed their dividends like they did to slaughter a dying pig, causing its share price to fall by 50% in one day.

An Investor’s On-Site Visit To A Property Of Mapletree North Asia Commercial Trust In Japan (guest post)

An Investor’s On-Site Visit To A Property Of Mapletree North Asia Commercial Trust In Japan (guest post)

mapletree nac trust

$Mapletree NAC Tr(RW0U.SI)

Buildings : SII Makuhari Building & Fujitsu Makuhari Building

Location: Chiba prefecture, Japan.

Date : November 2018.

Mapletree Greater China Commercial Trust was listed in 2013 and managed overseas commercial properties in China and Hong Kong.  Earlier this year, with the acquisition of Japanese properties into its portfolio, it changed its name to Mapletree North Asia Commercial Trust.

I started to took notice and then shortly thereafter took up a position.  With the trade war with U.S and China at the forefront, I reckon that a more diversified portfolio would be beneficial so properties in Japan would be a good balance.

It would be better if they can get some South Korean commercial properties but I think it is good to keep within 2- 3 countries as exchange rates maybe a double edged sword.

Gearing ratio had increased to 39% (Sep 2018) from 36% ( Mar 2018) but I am not too concerned.
