Is the worst really over? Or can it be just a dead cat bounce?

Is SATS Playing a Dangerous Game?

Is SATS Playing a Dangerous Game?

This is bad. I mean, the SATS/WFS buyout was just poor communication to shareholders.

This post was originally posted here. The writer, Willie Keng is a veteran community member and blogger on InvestingNote, with a username known as @Willie and has close to 120 followers.

SATS’ shares plunged 20% in a day after announcing that the WFS deal was an “all-equity financing” deal in Sep.

This meant SATS shareholders would have to fork out the entire S$1.7 billion sum.

Well, it turned out that wasn’t the case. Later on, SATS clarified the buyout would be a mix of equity, debt and cash.

The funny thing is though, why hasn’t SATS shares recovered?

Disclaimer — I’m no longer a shareholder of SATS as shared in Diligence.

At first glance, I thought SATS made a good acquisition. But I realized there’s something more about the deal.

Anyway, let’s find out what exactly happened.

SATS/WFS deal timeline — What happened?

  • 28 September: SATS announced to buy Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) for an “all-equity” funding of S$1.7 billion. Later, shares plunged 20% in a day.
  • 6 October: SATS clarified how it plans to fund the deal – mix of rights issue, debt and using its own cash.
  • 7 November: The Competition and Consumer Commission of Singapore (CCCS) accepted the SATS/WFS deal application. Now assessing if the buyout would breach anti-competition laws.
  • 9 November: SATS said rights issue will not exceed S$800 million.

A simple Trading Strategy with a winning rate of 88.89%

A simple Trading Strategy with a winning rate of 88.89%

In today’s training, I’ll share a trading strategy with an 88.89% winning rate.

A simple Trading Strategy with a Winning rate of 88.89%

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 close to 750 followers.

I’ll give you the following:

  • Exact trading rules
  • The performance matrix of this strategy
  • Examples
  • And much more

Are you excited?

Then let’s get started.

So first…

What is the strategy with a winning rate of 88.89%, and how does it work?

The core idea behind this trading strategy is that it’s a pullback stock trading strategy.

Why not a breakout, you may ask?

Because in the long run, the stock market is in a long-term uptrend as it tracks what the economy is doing.

The US Stock Market has been in a long-term uptrend since the 1900s because the US economy back in the 1900s compared to today has improved!

It’s the same thing for other stock markets in other parts of the world.

But here’s the thing…

Just because a market is in a long-term uptrend doesn’t mean it goes up in one straight line.

What do I mean?

In the short run, prices could go below their valuation because of panic selling and profit-taking.

These are often called “corrections.”

As pullback traders, we can take advantage of it.

Makes sense?

Let’s now go to the meat of this training guide…

Which Singapore-Listed Bank Had the Most Resilient Set of Q3 Results for FY2022?

Which Singapore-Listed Bank Had the Most Resilient Set of Q3 Results for FY2022?

All 3 Singapore-listed banks (in DBS, UOB, and OCBC) have already released their business updates for the third quarter ended 30 September 2022. As I have investments in them, I have posted reviews when their business updates were made available and you can find them in the respective posts below:

This post was originally posted here. The writer, Jun Yuan Lim is a veteran community member and blogger on InvestingNote, with a username known as @ljunyuan and has close to 2100 followers.

My focus in this post is to put the 3 banks’ results side-by-side to find out which one reported the most resilient set of results both on a quarter-on-quarter (Q3 FY2021 vs. Q3 FY2022) and on a year-on-year (9M FY2021 vs. 9M FY2022), as well as which is currently the ‘cheapest’ (based on their current valuations.)

Before I begin, a quick recap on the 3 banks’ performance for the 2nd quarter, as well as for the first half of the financial year – both UOB and OCBC stood out in terms of improvements in its financial results, as well as in its key financial ratios, with OCBC being ‘cheapest’ among the three.

My Review of OCBC’s Q3 FY2022 Business Update

My Review of OCBC’s Q3 FY2022 Business Update

Early this morning (05 November 2022), Overseas-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited (SGX:O39), or OCBC for short, is the last of the 3 Singapore-listed bank to release its business update for the third quarter of FY2022 ended 30 September 2022 (you can check out my review of UOB’s Q3 FY2022 business update here, and DBS’ Q3 FY2022 business update here.)

This post was originally posted here. The writer, Jun Yuan Lim is a veteran community member and blogger on InvestingNote, with a username known as @ljunyuan and has close to 2100 followers.

Just to recap – in the previous quarter (i.e. Q2 and 1H FY2022), the performance of its non-performing loans ratio (where it saw a 0.1 percentage point, or pp for short, decline to 1.3%, despite the economic headwinds) stood out. Also, the 12.0% increase in its interim dividend payout to 28.0 cents/share was also a pleasant surprise (do note that for the current quarter under review, there are no dividend payouts declared as the bank pays out dividends on a half-yearly basis.)

Will its results this time round spring up any more pleasant surprises? Let us find out in this post, where you’ll read about my review of the Singapore-listed bank’s latest Q3 and 9M business update (as the bank have also changed to reporting its full financial statements on a half-yearly basis, it only provided a snippet of its financial performances this time round) in terms of its key financial performances and ratios:

Similar to UOB (which have published its Q3 FY2022 business update last Friday, and you can check out my review about it here), for the current quarter under review, it only released a snippet of some of the key financial figures (as the bank have switched to reporting its full financial results on a half-yearly basis), which we will be looking at, along with some of the key financial ratios in this post. I’ll also be sharing my thoughts about the bank’s latest ‘report card.’

Let’s begin:

Fed Raises Rate By Another 0.75%! What’s Happening?

Fed Raises Rate By Another 0.75%! What’s Happening?

For the fourth time this year, the US Federal Reserve raised interest rates by another 75 basis points last night.

Following this rate hike, stocks initially rose as the Fed’s statement appeared to be more dovish and expressed the hope that future rate hikes would be lower.

However, Fed Chair Jerome Powell’s still-tough talk on inflation crushed the traders’ hopes. After Powell said that inflation was still too high and the central bank will continue to raise rates, stocks tumbled. He added that it was “premature” to talk about pausing hikes and the central bank still had ways to go before wrapping up its tightening policy.

Below are key takeaways of last night’s Fed meeting summarized by our community member @mynest:

  1. “There are still some more rate hikes to go so don’t even think about Fed pausing yet.
  2. Even when the Fed pauses, they are going to hold high rates for a significant period of time.
  3. Fed rather over tighten than let inflation loose. Meaning they would rather crash the market kill inflation then try to help the market again.
  4. The level of interest rate when the hike will end is likely to exceed the inflation rate level.
  5. The pace of the hike is unimportant so a lesser % hike doesn’t mean Fed is going to loosen up.”

Although the Fed rate is unlikely to pause at near-term, we might see a lower-than-75bps rate hike in future Fed meetings, if there aren’t any “surprises” from economic data.  The next major rate hike decision will be made on 14 Dec. Here’s what to expect:

In HK, they have also just increased the interest rate as well.
