Mapletree Commercial Trust, out of the other REITs, released its latest results in the evening (its results are for the second quarter and first half of the financial year 2020/21 – it has a year-end every 31 March.) Hence, yesterday was certainly busy for me, where 3 REITs in my long-term investment portfolio (you can check out a list of all the companies I have invested in here) released their latest financial results for the quarter ended 30 September 2020 – CapitaLand Mall Trust (for the third quarter, which you can check out here), and Suntec REIT (also for the third quarter, which you can read here) before market hours.

In my post today, I will be sharing key aspects you need to know about the REIT’s latest update – particularly its financial performance, debt, and portfolio occupancy profile, along with its distribution per unit. On top of that, you will also find my personal thoughts about the blue-chip REIT’s latest set of results peppered throughout the post.

This is also the last time the REIT will be reporting its results under CapitaLand Mall Trust – it will be renamed as CapitaLand Integrated Commercial Trust with effect from 03 November 2020 (you can read the news report about this in full here.)

Apart from its financial results, debt and occupancy profile, and distribution payout to unitholders, I’m also interested to find out whether or not there are any improvements compared to the second quarter (ended 30 June 2020) where its results were badly affected due to the two-month circuit breaker period.

We have researched hard and have found 3 dividend stocks that pay dividends every quarter that you should know. If anything, the pandemic has taught us lots of things not only in terms of health but also in terms of finances. A conventional 6 months of expenses in emergency savings are not working out anymore.

Many unfortunate people are facing retrenchment or pay cut since March, and that has been more than 6 months ago.

Monitoring our cash flow is extremely important for retail investors like us. Receiving consistent and high-frequency dividends are one way to tide us through this tough time.

Liquidity and Network Flywheel Causes Multiplier Effect On Business and Shares Valuation

The liquidity and Network Flywheel effect is key to unlock business growth and expansion.The Data Flywheel: How Enlightened Self-Interest Drives Data Network Effects

One of the most important elements of a tech platform business model is the ability to create multiple expansion network effects, using the Network Flywheel concept.

A network effect is often described in economics and businesses as one of the key pillars of success as it depicts a contagion behavior of one additional usage of products or services that will have on the next users. This creates a long-lasting effect and an increasing value of a customer’s lifetime value, which is one of the key unit economic metrics for a business.

The Internet is clearly the easiest example of the network effect, where everything in our daily activities flows through the web channel.

Let’s take a look in more detail by using a private ride-hailing network, Grab as an example.

Grab started out as a ride-hailing platform where it aims to create a large pool network of supply and demand in each market so they can have what is called the network liquidity flywheel as depicted in the graph I created above.

A Look into NYSE-listed Restaurant Brands International Inc. (NYSE:QSR)

A Look into NYSE-listed Restaurant Brands International Inc. (NYSE:QSR)

Restaurant Brands International might seem unfamiliar, but did you know Burger King and Popeyes are under RBI?

Restaurant Brands: A Growth Story Missing A Solid Base (NYSE:QSR) | Seeking Alpha

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 1409 followers.

You may not hear of the NYSE-listed Restaurant Brands International Inc. (NYSE:QSR), but I am perfectly sure you have heard of the fast-food brands ‘Burger King’ and ‘Popeyes.’ Together with ‘Tim Hortons’, these three brands come under the company.

Here is some quick information about each of the three brands under the company:

1. Burger King – Founded in 1954, it is currently the world’s second-largest fast-food hamburger restaurant; as at the end of FY2019 (ended 31 December 2019), the company owns or franchises a total of 18,838 Burger King outlets in more than 100 countries and US territories. You can browse through its website here – www.bk.com.

2. Popeyes – Founded in 1972, they are the world’s second-largest quick-service chicken concept, with a total of 3,316 outlets (either owned or franchised) as at the end of FY2019 – you can find out more here – www.popeyes.com.

3. Tim Hortons – This is probably the only brand under the company that we Singaporeans are not familiar with. Established in 1964, with a menu consisting of premium blend coffee, tea, espresso-based hot and cold specialty drinks, along with fresh baked goods, grilled Panini and classic sandwiches, wraps, soups, prepared food, and other food products, there are currently 4,932 outlets (either owned or franchised) in North America and Canada – you can find out more in its website here – www.timhortons.com.

In the latest financial year ended 31 December 2019, Tim Hortons contributed a lion’s share towards the company’s total revenue (at US$3,344m or 59.7%), followed by Burger King (at US$1,777m or 31.7%), and then Popeyes (at US$482m or 8.6%.)

Now that you have a better understanding of Restaurant Brands International Inc.’s businesses, in the remainder of this post, let us take a look at its historical financial performance, debt profile, as well as its dividend payouts over the last 5 years (the period we will be looking at is between FY2015 and FY2019), its current-year results so far (i.e. 1H FY2020 ended 30 June 2020) compared against the previous year (i.e. 1H FY2019 ended 30 June 2019), and finally, whether or not the company’s current traded price is considered ‘cheap’ or ‘expensive’ based on its current vs. its historical valuations.

Is The Clorox Company a good addition to your investment portfolio?

This post was originally posted here. The writer, Lim Jun Yuan is a veteran community member and blogger on InvestingNote, with username known as @ljunyuan and has 1408 followers.

NYSE-listed The Clorox Company (NYSE:CLX) has products on the supermarket shelves that clean and disinfect our homes. What with the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, people have been stepping up their hygiene standards at home so as to protect themselves as well as their loved ones from being part of the Covid-19 statistic.

Apart from Clorox, some of the brands you should be familiar with (which is also from the company) include Glad’s range of plastic food wraps and food bags (you can check out their range of products on the website of supermarket retailers Cold Storage and Giant), Liquid-Plumr’s range of decloggers (again, you can check out the range of products sold in Singapore on the website of Cold Storage and Giant), as well as Burt’s Bees range of skincare products (you can check out their range of products on Sephora Singapore’s website here.)

In my writeup about The Clorox Company today, I will be sharing with you a bit more about the company’s other businesses, followed by looking at its historical financial performance, debt profile, and dividend payout to its shareholders over the past 6 financial years (as the company has a financial year-end every 30 June, I will be looking at its financial results between FY2014/15 and FY2019/20.) On top of that, I will also be sharing whether or not at its current traded price, is the company considered ‘cheap’ or ‘expensive’ based on its current vs. its historical valuations.

mm2 Asia to acquire Cathay Cineplexes for $230m after failed bid for Golden Village, Companies & Markets News & Top Stories - The Straits Times

This post was originally posted here. The writer, James Yeo is a veteran community member and blogger on InvestingNote, with a username known as @Smallcapasia and has 905 followers.

MM2 Asia is benefiting from the latest announcement of the Government’s green light to allow more patrons in cinemas. On 23 September 2020, the government announced that from Oct 1, large cinema halls with more than 300 seats will be allowed to admit up to 150 patrons in three zones of 50 patrons each.

On the other hand, smaller cinema halls will also be allowed to increase their capacity to 50 percent of their original operating capacity or maintain the current limit of up to 50 patrons per hall, subject to safe management measures.

For Cathay Cineplexes’ parent company – MM2 Asia, it would have breathed a sigh of relief that the worst is probably over as they can welcome more customers.

But that being said, the Cathay cinema is just 1 division of MM2 Asia as the latter owns many more integrated businesses across the content, immersive media, event, and concert industries across Asia.

Mm2 Asia Profile

mm2 Asia is a leading producer of films and TV/online content in Asia. As a producer, mm2 provides services over the entire film-making process – from financing and production to marketing and distribution, and thus has diversified revenue streams.

I love the ATR indicator because unlike other trading indicators that measure momentum, trend direction, overbought levels, and etc.

The ATR (average true range) indicator is none of it.

Instead, it’s something entirely different.

And if used correctly, the Average True Range is one of the most powerful indicators you’ll come across.

That’s why I’ve written this post to explain the awesomeness of the Average True Range indicator.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

ATR indicator explained — what is it and how does it work

The Average True Range is an indicator that measures volatility.

It’s developed by J. Welles Wilder and was first mentioned in his book, New Concepts in Technical Analysis Systems (in 1978).

Now you might be wondering:

“How is the ATR values calculated?”

Well, it’s done using 1 of 3 methods, depending on how the candles are formed.
