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

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 Stock Review – Potential Beneficiary from Economy Reopening?

Will MM2 Asia benefit from the reopening of the economy?

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

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.

Do you know how an ATR indicator works?

What Is The ATR Indicator & How Do You Use It When Trading MT4?
This post was originally posted here. The writer, Rayner Teo is a veteran community member and blogger on InvestingNote, with a username known as @Rayner and has 593 followers.

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.

INTERVIEW WITH OUR TOP 10 FINALISTS OF SG’S ACTIVE TOURNAMENT

INTERVIEW WITH OUR TOP 10 FINALISTS OF SG’S ACTIVE TOURNAMENT

Interview with Top 10 of the Tournament Leaderboard: Goh Jing Wei

This mini-interview series is to showcase some of the prominent participants of the tournament leaderboard and what propels them to be able to trade well.

screenshot-2020-10-08-at-12-11-42This post was originally posted here. This is Goh Jing Wei who is currently in the top 10 on the leaderboard, out of over 2,000 participants.

We did a quick lookup on his tournament portfolio here and he has a return of 30.4%!

We asked the questions that followed and this is what he had to say.

How many years have you been trading and which markets do you usually trade?
Goh Jing Wei: Recently, I just reached the age which is eligible for trading. Therefore, I do not have years of experience in trading.

What’s your profession?
Goh Jing Wei: I am a student at Ngee Ann Polytechnic. (Course: International trade and business)

How did you start trading and what got you started?
Goh Jing Wei: I watched many Youtube videos and many traders sharing their trading process and strategies.

So what’s your usual trading plan like?
Goh Jing Wei: I have not started trading with my real money as I have just reached the eligible age of trading. I plan to do swing trading or position trading but I am still exploring the different options and strategies.

Then how do you usually determine entry for a particular trade?
Goh Jing Wei: I will research and find investments that have a high probability of large movements in the future. I will avoid investment which likely has small movements or fluctuations.

How do you usually determine an exit for a particular trade?
Goh Jing Wei: When things have gone according to my plan and I believe it has reached the highest profit possible, I will exit my position.

Finally, what would you say to new participants & traders of this year’s tournament who want to trade well?
Goh Jing Wei: Only start trading once you are confident and understand things well. Trading without knowing what you are doing is the same as gambling.

But, it’s not over. FINAL ROUND will begin soon from 12th October to 23rd October, where the tournament’s Top 10 finalists will compete against each other. You may view more details of our tournament’s Final Round as well as their portfolios and trades here.

Time flies. We are now into the final quarter of the calendar year 2020. With that, we are into another round of earnings season, where, over the next couple of weeks, we await for companies to release their updates for the quarter ended 30 September 2020. SPH REIT however, has already released its financial results.
Just like in the previous quarters, I will be providing updates on companies in my long-term investment portfolio (you can check out all the companies I’ve invested in here) as and when the management makes available the latest updates.

SPH REIT (SGX:SK6U) was the first company that released its financial results for the second half of the financial year 2019/20 (the period between 01 February and 30 August 2020), as well as for the full-year 2019/20 yesterday evening (06 October 2020) after market hours.

In this post, you will find key components of the retail REIT’s latest results to take note of, along with my personal thoughts…

Financial Results (2H FY2018/19 vs. 2H FY2019/20, and FY2018/19 vs. FY2019/20)

In this section, you will find the REIT’s financial performance for the second half of the financial year 2019/20 compared against the same period last year (i.e. 2H FY2018/19), as well as the REIT’s full-year results for FY2019/20 compared against its results for the previous financial year 2018/19:

Uncertainty Breeds Returns

Uncertainty Breeds Returns

An increase in uncertainty in the global markets has exacerbated the dollar bull market and market outperformance.

Forecasting in a Time of Uncertainty: Tech Markets • sopsa.org

With the FED having a mandate to hold the short-term interest rate for a prolonged period of time and their willingness to let inflation run above 2%, it makes us wonders if interest rates would ever tick up amongst the uncertainty.

BCA Research points out that in the past 30 years, there has been a strong link between major moves in real 10-year yields and the amount of excess savings in the economy.

Currently, the gross private savings have been very well boosted by the fiscal stimulus but also that people tend to become more prudent when things are uncertain.

As people’s salary regain traction and consumer sentiment recovers, it is likely the savings rate will decline and perhaps yield might start moderating upwards.

I am thinking less about the REITs but more about whether the insurance companies and the finance company can finally have some yield spread to play with so as to earn some interest income. This would change the picture for the financials and insurance company as to whether there is a catalyst for the share price to do well.

BCA has this idea for people to remain overweight global equities in your core positions but it would be good to pair with a portfolio of stocks to short. These are the stocks that are particularly vulnerable if the market corrects.
