1)$SIA(C6L.SI)

The aviation industry is going through a hard reset.  While vaccines are starting to be available, it will take many many more months (infection number still raising)  for all countries to gain herd immunity.  A likelihood of SIA doing more rounds of fund raising which will dilute existing shareholders.

2) $First Reit(AW9U.SI)

For REITs that depend on master leases it is vital for investors to check the financial strength of the counter party.  If the tenant has weak financials doesn’t matter how the lease is restructured or how much $$ the REIT raise.  A responsible REIT manager will know when it is time to liquidate the properties and return $$ to shareholders before more value destruction happens.

How to Identify Trend Reversal in the Markets With Zero Indicators (Guest post)

How to Identify Trend Reversal in the Markets With Zero Indicators (Guest post)

Do you want to know how to identify trend reversal ahead of time, guaranteed?

Well, it doesn’t exist.

No trading system or methodology can.

However…

The closest thing you’ll get is to learn how to read the price action and identify potential areas where the market could reverse.

And this is what you’ll learn in today’s post:

Ready?

Then let’s begin…

How to identify trend reversal — identify weakness in the trending move

First, let me define what a trending move is…

A trending move is the “stronger” leg of a trend and it trades in the same direction of it (that’s why I call it trending move).

The trending move (in a healthy uptrend) usually has more bullish than bearish candles; the bullish candles are relatively larger than the bearish ones, and the bullish candles closing near the highs

An example:


However:

When the bullish candles are getting smaller, it’s telling you the buying pressure is getting weak, or there is equal selling pressure coming in.

Investing in the Lion-OCBC Securities Hang Seng Tech ETF (guest post)

Investing in the Lion-OCBC Securities Hang Seng Tech ETF (guest post)

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly disrupted both working practices and life in general and many of us have been adjusting to this new working world and lifestyle. We have gotten used to working from home for extended periods of time and are now relying on digital ways to complete our daily errands and tasks.

Traditional businesses were impacted as well and many companies took this opportunity to pivot their operations and automate processes as strategies were redefined to meet the increasing need for a digital transformation.

Many of the technology companies that we were familiar with come from the United States, particularly Silicon Valley in the past twenty years. However, in recent years, the Chinese have also increased their technological research and absorption and have strengthened their digital presence globally.

How Hang Seng TECH Index Companies Performed During COVID-19

Alibaba, Tencent, Xiaomi, Lenovo, and JD.com… are some of the Chinese technology companies that have become very popular and are tracked by the Hang Seng TECH Index.

The Hang Seng Tech Index which represents the 30 largest technology companies by market capitalization listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange was launched on the 27th July 2020.

Since its inception till 25 November 2020, the Hang Seng TECH Index has gained nearly 20%, outperforming Hang Seng Index, NASDAQ, and Straits Times Index during the same period.

How Investors Can Invest In Tech Companies Listed on the HKEX

For those who are attracted by the growth in the technology sector, how can they get a piece of the pie?

An investor could attempt to build their own portfolio of technology companies by purchasing multiple stocks, for instance, Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (HKG: 9988), JD.com… Inc (HKG: 9618), and Meituan Dianping (HKG: 3690).

6 Key Points About iFAST (after losing bid for digital banking licence) (guest post)

6 Key Points About iFAST (after losing bid for digital banking licence) (guest post)

On Friday evening, MAS announced that it will award full digital banking licences to Internet firm Sea and the Grab-Singtel consortium, as well as DWB licences to China’s Ant Group and a consortium led by Greenland Financial. The iFast’s consortium, with China’s Yillion Group and Hande Group, fails bid for digital wholesale bank (DWB) licence and its share price is down 30% today.

1. To say the least, I am very disappointed that iFast did not get the WDB license.

2. While I understand that Ant was a firm favorite and they won, I don’t quite understand why only 2 WDB licenses were awarded when they had planned for up to 3. Did iFast fail to even meet the WDB requirements? I thought its unlikely since Lim CC would be experienced enough to satisfy all the requirements before bidding. Maybe MAS wants the company to already have at least S$100m in cash now? iFast’s thinking was that it could easily raise S$100m from consortium partners and the market if it wins.

Also, I scratch my head why the consortium led by Greenland could win. Greenland’s parent company is among the biggest property developers in China but it is also heavily indebted, highly geared. I believe its financial arm also does not have much track record in the finance business, especially in South East Asia.

Why give it to Greenland? Why MAS does not award to one of the biggest, best run, most promising home-grown fintech companies in Singapore?

3. To be fair to iFast, part of the reasons why its share price soared in the last few months was because its existing businesses have done very well. The business units continued to register strong growth and higher profits throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. AUA continues to rise to record levels quarter after quarter.

Indeed, it also just won licenses to operate its platform for stocks trading in Malaysia and to operate as a private fund manager in China. Both these new business lines will commence operations in Q1 2021 and start to bring more revenues for FY21.

Price Action Patterns That Work (Guest Post)

Price Action Patterns That Work (Guest Post)

When it comes to price action patterns, most traders will think of…

“Hammer”

“Shooting star”

“Engulfing pattern”

Now, these are easy patterns to learn for beginners.

But, if you want to take your price action trading skill to the next level, then you must master new price action patterns.

That’s why in today’s post, you’ll discover 5 price action patterns that work—so you can develop sniper trading entries to trade market reversals, trend continuation, and even breakouts.

Ready?

Then let’s begin…

Price action pattern #1: False break

The false break is a reversal price action pattern that allows you to buy low and sell high.

Here’s why it works:

 

Imagine, the price makes a strong bullish move into resistance—and breaks out higher.

At this point, many traders have this thought process…

“The market is so bullish”

“Look at how big those green candles are!”

“It’s time to buy!”

So, this group of traders buy as the price breaks above resistance and their stop loss is likely below the previous candle low, below support, etc.

This means if the market makes a sudden reversal, you can agree that these cluster of stop loss will be triggered which puts selling pressure in the market.

Plus, if bearish traders step into the market and sell near the highs of resistance, you can expect the market to collapse lower and erode the gains it made earlier—that’s the power of the false break price action pattern.

Now that you’ve understood the logic behind the false break price action pattern, then here’s how to trade it…

A Summary of Mapletree Logistics Trust’s EGM on 23 November 2020 (guest post)

A Summary of Mapletree Logistics Trust’s EGM on 23 November 2020 (guest post)

Blue chip logistics REIT Mapletree Logistics Trust (SGX:M44U) held its extraordinary general meeting (EGM) yesterday afternoon to seek unitholders’ approval on the proposed acquisition of 22 properties in China, along with 1 property in Malaysia as well as in Vietnam. Approval was also sought for its proposed issue of new units of the REIT as partial consideration for its China acquisitions, and also for the proposed whitewash resolution.

 

An Analysis of Mapletree Logistics Trust

This post was originally posted here. The writer, Lim Jun Yuan is a veteran community member and blogger on InvestingNote, with a username known as @ljunyuan and has 1442 followers.

Due to the safe distancing measures imposed by the Singapore government (due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic), the EGM was held in a hybrid mode – both online as well as offline (limited spaces available.) I have opted to attend the online version of the meeting as a unitholder and in this post, you’ll find a key summary of it, which I’ve compiled for the benefit of those who weren’t able to attend…

Presentation by Chief Executive Officer, Ms Ng Kiat

  • The following are details of the acquisition:
    • Acquisition of the remaining 50.0% stake in 15 warehouses in China, a 100.0% stake in 7 warehouses in China, 1 warehouse in Malaysia and also in Vietnam
  • Aggregate Agreed Property Value: S$1,509.2 million
  • Implied Net Property Income yield: ~5.2%
  • Net Lettable Area: 1,223,660 sqm
  • Committed occupancy rate: 94.7%
  • Weighted average lease expiry: 2.3 years
  • CEO of Mapletree Logistics Trust, Ms Ng Kiat, shared that the logistics industry have benefited from the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, where demand for Grade A warehouse space have increased as a result of an increase in adoption of e-commerce.
  • She explained that 3 geographical locations which the REIT will be acquiring properties in (China, Malaysia, and Vietnam) have seen their GDPs staying resilient despite the pandemic. Also, these countries are also projected to see a strong growth in their urban population in the years ahead (which will lead to an increase in demand for modern logistics space.) Coupled with the limited supply of Grade A warehouse space in the 3 countries, Ms Ng added that represents an opportunity for the REIT, being a leading provider of quality logistics space in Asia-Pacific, to come in and fill the market gap.
  • On top of that, Ms Ng also shared that the warehouses’ locations are strategically located near local consumption hubs in under an hour, which is an important consideration for tenants in e-commerce businesses. Not just that, post-acquisition, the REIT will see new top 10 tenants (by percentage of gross revenue) in JD.com… (which will contribute 2.4%) and Cainiao (which will contribute 2.1%.)
