My Investment Portfolio (September 2017)

STI ended the 3rd quarter of the year at around 3219 points, again down from last month. Usual concerns like interest rate hike in US and Korean Peninsular issues had dominated the markets. It looks like markets is now under a correction mode going into the last quarter of the year.

For this month, I have attended the following AGMs/EGMs/briefings - Moya Asia, MapleTree Logistics Trust and SGX.

For my top 30 holdings, Best World returned to the list again as investors bought back the stock after a selldown last month. Venture is a main mover in an otherwise much unchanged list. Sarine Technologies dropped out of the list after being sold down due to concerns on IP issues. Mandarin Oriental had been volatile this month due to news flow on its intended sale of an asset.

I have bought the following companies from the market this month - AF Global, Allied Tech, ComfortDelgro, Delfi, EnGro, GL, Heeton, Hong Leong Finance, Hotel Grand Central, Hotel Properties, Keppel T&T, Singapore Reinsurance, Singapura Finance and TIH. I have also reduced my position in CapitaLand Commercial Trust in order to extract cash to participate in its rights issue next month.

I have accepted the following voluntary delisting/cash offer this month - CWT. I have also participated in the following rights issue this month - Cache Logistics Trust.

I have participated in the following scrip dividend schemes this month - Vibrant Group and UOA. 

Next month will be another AGM season whereby companies with financial year ending 30 June 2017 will be holding their AGMs. As usual, I will try to attend some of these meetings in order to get some updates on some of these companies.

My Unit Trust Portfolio:

May I ask why you reduce your position in capitaland commercial trust to subscribe the rights?

Hi quek keng joo,

I wish to apply for some excess rights shares at the discounted rights price but also do not wish to increase my position in CapitaLand Commercial Trust significantly. Hence, I have taken a decision to reduce my current holdings. I do not know whether CapitaLand Commercial Trust exposure in my portfolio will be higher or lower after the rights issue as that depends on how much excess rights shares I would be allocated.

where do you see comfort delgro bouncing back to and why?

Hi paranoid steak,

Unfortunately, I do not have a price target for ComfortDelgro. I just have a view that the selling is a bit overdone. Short term wise, revenue and profits from their public transport businesses (i.e. bus, MRT and LRT) will be able to sustain the company as their taxi business continues to be challenging. Cash flow is still ok and dividend yield should be sustainable. That itself should provide a floor where the stock can fall to, though I cannot predict short term share price movements.

As for upside, good news from their potential tie-up with Uber might provide it, though details have not been out yet. I will also not rule out future corporate action in ComfortDelgro, which might involve buying/selling their current portfolio of businesses.

Do you have Ho Bee? How much would you let go if offer comes?

Hi ghchua, do you own shares in SPH? Any comments on this counter?

Hi Sunny,

For Ho Bee, since they have mostly investment properties in their balance sheet, NTA should be a good gauge of the value of the company. Which means, anything around $4.40 should be a good offer, though realistically, there might be some discount you have to put into the NTA.

Hi PG,

For SPH, it is currently experiencing disruption in their media business, though property continues to do ok. Also, they are trying out new businesses like nursing home. I think much will depend on their execution going forward and whether they can stop the profit drop in their media business. I will not be too eager to add onto my position in SPH at this moment.

Liang Beng, Koh Bro, Wee Hur, which is a better choice?

Hi Sunny,

My choice would be Koh Brothers. They are stronger in infrastructure projects and got good assets in their balance sheet like Oxford Hotel, Sun Plaza etc.
