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%.)

4 Key Things to Know about DBS & Lakshmi Vilas Bank (LVB) Merger (guest post)

4 Key Things to Know about DBS & Lakshmi Vilas Bank (LVB) Merger (guest post)

By now, you probably have heard about India’s central bank proposing a scheme to merge the ailing Lakshmi Vilas Bank (LVB) with DBS Bank.

Many investors have been crying foul about the bad deal etc. On the analysts side, there have been a mixed reaction as shown from the Biz Times article here.

But on an objective note, here’s 4 key things investors need to know about the proposed DBS – Lakshmi Vilas Bank (LVB) merger (there are plenty of snippets from various sources below and you can refer to the url links posted at the end).

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 913 followers.

1) What led to DBS – Lakshmi Vilas Bank (LVB) merger?

This is believed to be the first time that the India central bank has turned to a foreign lender to rescue a failing local bank, in a move that took the industry by surprise.

Lakshmi Vilas Bank has been struggling with financial decline and red ink for the past three years. It incurred a loss of around $150 million in the 12 months to March 31. Its net worth has also shrunk while unpaid loans have increased.

India’s central bank advised LVB in September last year to reduce bad assets and bring in new capital.

However, after many months of futile discussion talks and sensing that things are deteriorating, The central bank stepped in to bail them out.

RBI (Reserve Bank of India) then did the following on 17 Nov 2020:

  • Imposed a one-month moratorium on LVB
  • Capped deposit withdrawals at 25,000 rupees and
  • Unveiled the proposed merger with DBS soon after.

Turtle Trading Rules: Does It Still Work Today? (guest post)

Turtle Trading Rules: Does It Still Work Today? (guest post)

In 1983, two commodity traders, Richard Dennis and William Eckhardt experimented to see if trading is an inborn skill or it can be taught.

So they conducted interviews to find people who were the right fit.

A few lucky candidates were selected for the program—they were known as the turtle traders.

Next, Richard Dennis gave the turtle traders a fixed set of trading rules to trade the markets (using his money).

The result?

It was astonishing! Several turtle traders made triple-digit returns within a few short years and some even went on the set up their own hedge funds.

Clearly, the turtle trading rules worked well in the 1980s.

But the question is:

Do the turtle trading rules still work today?

Well, that’s what you’re about to discover in this post.

So let’s get started…

Microsoft’s First Quarter 2021 Results Look Good (Guest post)

Microsoft’s First Quarter 2021 Results Look Good (Guest post)

Microsoft’s results seem good despite the pandemic.

Microsoft reports $36.9 billion in Q2 2020 revenue: Azure up 62%, Surface up 6%, and LinkedIn up 24% | VentureBeat

This post was originally posted here. The writer, Kyith Ng is a veteran community member and blogger on InvestingNote, with a username known as @kyith and has 1097 followers.

US tech giant Microsoft announced their Q1 2021 results yesterday morning.

They achieve per-share profit growth of $1.82, beating analysts’ expectations of $1.54 a share.

The after-market share performance was muted. In fact, it’s nearly 1.5% lower. But due to the broad market fall this morning (28th Oct) the stock is down almost 5% to $203.

It has been consistently drilled into my head at work that the market is forward-looking in theory. And in a few practical cases, it is the case. After-market movements reflect the general crowd’s sentiments towards their expectations of future cash flows.

Microsoft’s results were not too bad in Q1 2021.

  • Revenue was $37.2 billion and increased 12%
  • Operating income was $15.9 billion and increased 25%
  • Net income was $13.9 billion and increased 30%
  • Diluted earnings per share was $1.82 and increased 32%
