Shorting

Benefit of hindsight - when this was posted it was just before a local peak and thereafter there was a drop over two months of approx 30% - so nice little earner if picked the timings.... but stock recovered since then and compare to April entry point the share price is now up about 20% so if not actively traded then would at a loss (if shorting) Conclusion: need to watch markets like a hawk if playing opportinitisically

The new Uber/Lyft "sharing economy" would be very bad for older business models (eg look at the impact on NYC medallion prices) but still need underlying tools to get about (ie. the cars!) so it isn't as direct of an ipact.

Hi Anonymous, my quick thoughts on the company are that they have a strong business, generate consistent free cash flow, pay stable dividends, and have a great balance sheet. Are you looking at anything in particular? Disclaimer that I own shares in both iFAST and Straco.

Hi anon, First thing would be to beef up your savings a little. Although you will only start graduate and start work in 3 years, it would be prudent to have a small emergency fund of at least 6 months expenses. Also, ensure you have at least a hospitalization policy in place, in the event of any unforeseen health issues. You may consider critical illness coverage after you start work unless you wish to get one now due to lower premiums at your age. If you have a medium to high-risk profile, then I would recommend that you can consider going 60%-75% into equities, equity funds, or ETFs, depending on the sector and risks that you prefer. This assumes that you do not have any defined timeframe with which that you need the money. The remaining allocation can be placed in fixed income or kept as a warchest for further opportunities. Property as an investment can be done as well, but capital outlay will be bigger and I do not think $50000 is quite enough to split between all the asset classes I have mentioned. However, with due consideration to the big picture, also remember to balance your risk, as well as how you will continue to add on to your investments in time to come. Some question which I will pose to you to think about include: - What do I want my money to do for me? - What is the level of risk that I will want at different stages of my life? - Will the asset class I choose give me the return I want, and with what risk? It will be advisable for you to understand all the options on the table before selecting the one(s) that you are comfortable with. If you have more specific questions, you can reply to this post and I'll weigh in with my own thoughts.

Looking at last six months (Apr-Oct) Airbus has traded sideways while Boeing off approx 15%). So actually it's just the Boeing part that is really moving. If you can find a CFD provider that would allow pairs trade like this, you can get more exposure (and leverage that CFDs offer anyway) to take advantage but otherwise just short Boeing on its own

It's complex but: Tesla a bit of a tech darling (tech as in the battery tech, not your computer science tech) and has quite a lofty valuation compared to the underlying making-cars-business There is lots of short interest in Tesla due to the above (ie a whole bunch of people shorting the firm expecting the price to drop). Elon doesn't like this - it is people expressing negative views on his company after all. To combat this, he announces a potential buy out of shares at a premium to market price (this would hurt short-sellers because any bump in share price due to this would require cash cover and could squeeze them out of the trade) It turns out his actions were (basically) a bluff and he got into a lot of trouble because of this In terms of share price, as the recent wework drama shows, the valuation can jump all over the place depending on sentiment and for Elon is a bit erratic (aside from the against-the-law buyout announcement, apparently he was smoking weed during a live interview on the internet?) so unclear what is long term outlook for TSLA.

I tried it before. It uses AI to pull data together and visualise the results automatically based on the preset rules in the algorithm. Have a read on their blog, it seems that even the reviews are automated (i.e. very mechanical looking and doesn't tell me much). Nevertheless, the visuals are good looking and helps users to identify what's going on with the company, and also offer a good comparison to it's peers in their industry group. Do note that after the trial period, you will need to pay for subscription, or else will be limited to a few stocks to view each month. :)

TL;DR There could be some strong earnings potential from growth in developing countries for Singtel's investments overseas, although the telco market in Singapore is quite lukewarm. ! Business Profile I don’t think Singtel needs much explaining since most of us have used one of their products before and is the largest telecom operator in Singapore. What you may not know, is that its Australian subsidiary Optus is the second largest operator in Australia. Singtel also has substantial stakes in telcos in the region – Telkomsel in Indonesia, Bharti Airtel (Bharti) in India, AIS in Thailand and Globe in the Philippines. Financials Income Statement ! For FY17/18, revenue was 17,532m with a YOY increase of almost 5%. There was a hug increase in exceptional items due mainly to the gain on disposal of an associate. This suggests that the much higher profit from operating activities of almost 70% is driven by non-core activities like disposal of subsidiaries, and less by operating activities like revenue. Overall profit after tax was 5403m, a 41% YOY increase, but as mentioned, the disposal of the associate should not be treated as a recurring and core activity of Singtel. Balance Sheet ! Current Ratio for FY17/18 was only 0.72, suggesting that Singtel’s short-term liquidity isn’t strong. Interestingly, much of Singtel’s current assets was made up of receivables, whereas Singtel’s payables is predominantly made up of payables and unsecured borrowings. Singtel’s leverage (D/E) is 0.35, showing that the Singtel’s capital structure is made up mainly of equity. A L/E of 60%, also reveals Singtel’s greater dependency on equity holdings as compared to liabilities. Cashflow ! Singtel’s cashflow from operating activities was a slight improvement, due to higher profit before tax and stronger working capital management. For investing activities, there was a large purchase of intangible assets (5X previous FY), comprising mainly of telecommunications and spectrum licenses. Cashflow from financing activities had a large outflow due to mainly repayment of term loans and special dividends paid out. Risks Competition in Singapore ! The increased competition in Singapore’s telco space has led to intensified efforts by Singtel to maintain it’s foothold and market share. Additionally, the telco space in Singapore is already quite saturated with different competitors and a market size that is unlikely to grow due to slowing population growth and a lack of innovation on mobile offerings. Weak Enterprise Segment ! There have also been a slow order flow from Smart Nation projects, and the hype from this national development may lead to a lower valuation given by investors who had believed that Smart Nation development will improve Singtel’s earnings. Growth Associates Growth ! The listing of Airtel Africa in the middle of this year could allow Singtel to monetise its stake there. Also, increases of tariffs in India or a partial exit from its digital businesses could also help to lift earnings this year. Developing Countries Other than Australia and Singapore, Singtel also operates in Thailand, India, Philippines and Indonesia. These developing countries have a growing middle class that usually demand greater mobile and internet connectivity. This provides potential upside to Singtel in the long run.

Hi Melissa, generally, I would advise you to consider the costs of investing before you start. Equities have a brokerage, etc which can add up to a significant cost and reduce your returns. I would try to achieve lower than 0.5% cost, which means that my equity transactions would be at least $5000 at a minimum. Having said that, you can start to put away a war chest to prepare for deploying into equity, while participating in market movements through UT RSP, this two-pronged approach ensures that you can start to build an investment position while preparing for buying shares in future. As POEMS has no charges for UT, you may want to consider the platform for this. Some UTs have very respectable returns, beating ETFs over the long term. You can contact me if you need to open a POEMS account.

The last stage of a bull market is the most powered and strongest. Of course, if you enter just before the bear starts, it's going to be a bad decision. The question is: how can I know when is the start or end of the Bull/Bear market? I can't... I am not that good. So I stay invested always, and keep adding, bull or bear. :D
