II. Hongkong Land

In spite of the fear and uncertainty that have enveloped Hong Kong, I decided to sink a small sum in Hongkong Land.  At its current share price of US$5.50 (Dec 1), Hongkong Land has a shockingly cheap PB value of 0.33.  It's a steal, no doubt about that!  And the dividend yield is just slightly north of 4% ... not…

This month is yet another busy month with some time spent working overseas, and I've not been very diligent monitoring the market.  Nevertheless, I was able to invest in 2 counters, namely, Eagles HTrust and HongKong Land.

I. Eagles HTrust















There is no stock more unfortunate this year than Eagle Hospitality Trust, methinks.  The pub…

When it came to investing last month, I didn't do very much.  This month I decided to redeem myself by investing in 2 counters, one a SG stock, and another a US stock.


Hong Leong Finance:














I was surprised to learn, as I did my research on Hong Leong Finance, that it is the largest finance company in Singapore with a network of some …

I have been generally inactive when it comes to investing in the month of September.  Apart from RSPing in Moneyowl, I have done very little studying and researching on stocks.  For one, there was a holiday trip with the whole family ... no looking up stock tips or exploring investing ideas when on holiday.  And then, there was the ove…

It has been a pretty busy month for me, what with an overseas trip with the family and a sudden increase in work volume.  I thought I would sit out of the market this month, and just accumulate cash for the war chest.  However, with the increased market volatility this month as a result of the trade war and the unrest in HK, some good …

I have not been using MBKE's RSP program for long before they canceled the program (tsk!), and thus I was left with some odd units of STI ETF, OCBC and Singtel.  I sold them all and bought FuYu.  Why FuYu?
