Then, the 20 March market rout sent Keppel DC REIT (AJBU) share price tumbling to a low of $1.90. Thereafter, the share price steadily climbed to a high of $3.00 in October 2020 but unexpectedly tapered off to $2.70 toward the end of the year.

The beginning of 2021 saw Keppel DC REIT (AJBU) share price resuming its bullish form. However, the splendid run was recently halted by the devastating technology stocks sell-offs by the big boys. The massive US$1.9 trillion stimulus package by the US government led to a so-called rotation among institutional investors into valued stocks which had been walloped by coronavirus in 2020.

Nanofilm (SGX: MZH) share price worth $4 only?

Sign up & unlock articles! Amid the dearth of mega IPOs and a slew of delisting in SGX mainboard, Nanofilm Technologies’ explosive debut on 30 October 2020 certainly created a mighty buzz among Singapore investment community. In my memory, the last home-grown company that had debut with such fanfare was NetLink NBN Trust in 2017. Question now: is Nanofilm (MZH) share price overvalued?

Lion OCBC Securities Hang Seng Tech ETF

Ten years ago, it is hard to imagine Chinese technology companies that could rival their US counterparts like Google, FaceBook, Amazon and Netflix. Now, the likes of Alibaba, Baidu and Tencent have dominated Mainland Chinese’s mammoth market. Against the backdrop of a US-China trade war, many of them have secondary listings in the Hong Kong stock exchange in recent years. Could this trend be a catalyst for Lion OCBC Securities Hang Seng Tech ETF?

OCBC share price on the way to $11

Sign up & unlock articles! On 9 November 2020, I wrote that OCBC share price was poised for an upturn and could potentially hit $10.00. Since then, OCBC share price went on a splendid run to smash past $10.00 within a span of just two weeks. The superb form of OCBC share price caught many investors, including myself, by surprise.

The main catalyst for OCBC share price should be attributed to the possibility of COVID-19 vaccination deployment in December, sparking widespread pent-up expectations of macroeconomic recovery in 2021. Indeed, 2020 has been such a wretched year for OCBC share price that any positive developments in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic raise expectations of a global economic recovery.

Another catalyst for OCBC share price was the Lion Global Investors’ listing of tech-focused ETF on SGX. The ETF tracks technology companies listed in Hang Seng.

Will that fits the bill

By Lena Teng, CFP®, Acting Head of Solutions and Investment Lead, MoneyOwl

Amongst all the pillars of financial management, from savings to investments to retirement planning, will-writing is definitely the one that’s most misunderstood.

A will is a legal document through which a person declares how his/her assets will be distributed in the event of death. A simple internet search on ‘will-writing’ brings you to a long list of suggestions, of which a good number of them focus only on breaking down its misconceptions and common myths. The immense number of articles on this just goes to show that many are still unsure of this confusing and misunderstood aspect of financial planning.

BullionStar

This is a significant knowledge gap that needs to be addressed—as it contributes a big part to why will-writing remains to be a taboo topic amongst most in Singapore, with 56% of adult Singaporeans reporting that they have not made a will.
Will writing is not only crucial, but also a surprisingly simpler process compared to all other aspects of financial planning. The quick questionnaire below will help you unpack the seemingly mysterious concept of will-writing.

Question 1. Which of these is closest to the sum left unclaimed …

DBS Group Holdings share price in India adventure

Sign up & unlock articles! Since early November 2020, DBS Group Holdings share price went on an explosive run, surging from $20.35 to a high of $25.00 on 23 November. The driving factors for the bullish run of DBS Group Holdings share price were the excellent 3rd quarter financial result, the 95% efficacy of COVID-19 vaccine trial and Joe Biden being confirmed as the new President of United States.

Nonetheless, DBS Group Holdings share price turned cold turkey after the stunning announcement of a proposed merger of its wholly owned subsidiary, DBS Bank India Limited (DBIL), with the ailing Lakshmi Vilas Bank. Market reactions were mixed, causing DBS Group Holdings share price to lose steam.

Recently, the management team provided a business update to the local finance bloggers community. I had the privilege to attend the briefing and had the opportunity to gain a deeper insight into this leading commercial REIT. For the longest time, I had been interested in investing in an S-REIT. In this article, I will share the investment merits and cons of Keppel REIT share price.

Keppel REIT share price

In the previous update, I have shared that the management had been aggressively buying back units from the market. Since then, the management went on to conduct even more units buybacks in 2020. The amount of units buybacks was truly breath-taking – at 95.3 million units since 3QFY2018. The massive units buybacks provided critical support for Keppel REIT share price as Keppel REIT share price bounced from $0.90 on 24 March to a high of $1.20 on 10 June 2020.

Wilmar share price to explode with India IPO?

Sign up & unlock articles! Following the listing of subsidiary Yihai Kerry Arawana (YKA), Wilmar share price surged to a high of $4.70 before plunging to a low of $4.00 in October. The fall of Wilmar share price confounded plenty of investors as the market capitalization of Wilmar represented half of its value of holding in YKA at to the point of the IPO. This is indeed a very strange phenomenon!

Wilmar share price is prone to movement of the big boys because in FY2019 annual report, the number of shares held by public constituted only 28%. This means that the major shareholders have a major influence on share price movement. Indeed, Wilmar share price took a beating in August 2020 when shareholder Archer Daniels Midland, sold 170.5 million Wilmar at $4.40. In addition to that, ADM had entered into a stock-borrow arrangement in respect of its Wilmar shares in connection with its offering of US$300,000,000 zero coupon exchangeable bonds.

To halt the rapid slump of Wilmar share price, the management launched an offensive approach ranging from shares buybacks, announcement of special dividend, insider buying and reporting a stellar 3rd quarter financial result. Yet all these efforts did not …

With Joe Biden being confirmed as the new President of United States, many investors expect a bull run in the stock market. In my view, it does not matter whether Donald Trump or Joe Biden becomes the next President because the result will only remove uncertainties for institutional players to return to the stock market.
