How to Capitalise on the recent Keppel Corp News

How to Capitalise on the recent Keppel Corp News

Last week, the major news was Temasek’s plan to offer Keppel shareholders $7.35 per share, in cash, to buy 554.9 million shares or 30.55% of Keppel.

This partial offer will raise its stake in Keppel from the current 20.45% to 51%.

Temasek will be doing this through its wholly owned subsidiary Kyanite Investment Holdings.

Prior to this news which was released on 22 October Tuesday, Keppel’s shares were halted on 21 October Monday.

When the trading halt was lifted on Tuesday, after the news was announced, Keppel’s stock soared more than 10%.

If you’d bought the Keppel Corp Long DLC on 22 October – it gave a 70% in just one day!

However, this is where it gets interesting – even if you got in late, by buying the 5x Long DLC on 22 October AFTER the news and the stock shooting up, the DLC still could have made you more than 20% within a few days.

This is the magnitude of serious returns we’re talking about.

So what’s this all mean for retail investors?

A Daily Leverage Certificate (DLC) is a type of leveraged product listed on the SGX which allows you to get leveraged return of an underlying single stock or index. The leverage is fixed every day, e.g. for a 5x Long DLC, every 1% movement in the mother share will lead to 5% movement in the LongDLC price.

So whenever you see a short-term trading opportunity, e.g. stock about to break out, index reaching support level etc., you can use DLC as a tool to get leveraged return. This recent scenario of Keppel exemplifies this perfectly.

4 key reasons why you should use DLCs:

  1. Simple trading instrument to get leveraged return of popular stocks and indices from Singapore and Hong Kong
  2. No account opening process required; trade it like a stock – simply go to your stock broker account to trade DLCs (subject to SIP qualification)
  3. LongDLC and ShortDLC – two types of DLCs allow you to gain from both ups and downs of the Underlying stock or index
  4. Lower barrier of entry – one lot of DLC is 100 shares, and the unit price is usually much cheaper than the mother share, allowing lower barrier of entry and more flexible allocation of your investment capital

Here’s the full list of DLC & the corresponding underlying securities every investor and trader needs to know:

What Is A DLC? Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Trade A Daily Leverage Certificate

What Is A DLC? Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Trade A Daily Leverage Certificate

Daily Leverage Certificates (DLC) are exchange-traded financial products that enable investors to take a leveraged exposure to an underlying asset, such as a blue chip stock or an equity index.


DLCs replicate the performance of an underlying asset versus its previous day closing level, with a fixed leverage factor.

There are new DLCs with 20 regional blue chip stocks ranging from DBS to Tencent, as the underlying asset! Check out the full list of DLCs here.

For investors who want to maximise their short term exposure to market movements, DLCs can provide the opportunity to increase the exposure by a fixed factor, up to 5 times.

For DLCs with blue chip stocks as the underlying, the returns are magnified by 5x! For indexes, you can select a leverage from 3x, 5x or 7x!

Also, it doesn’t matter if the market is bearish as well – you can buy a short DLC to capitalise on a bearish situation.

For the 5x DLC with Venture as the underlying asset, it actually yielded a return of more than 70% in a week, just back in February!

The following is a detailed infographic by SGX on the Top 5 characteristics of DLCs.
