Are stocks such as SingTel and SPH considered penny stocks due to their <$5 price?
Hi Anon, Stock price is not the only factor to determine whether a stock is a penny stock or not. Singtel may be trading at under $3/share, but it is one of the ten largest companies on the STI. Whether a company is a penny stock is also dependent on many factors such as market capitalization. I would probably use a benchmark of under $10 million in market cap, and under 20 cents a share as a guideline to gauge if a stock is considered penny.

Hey there! I would suggest reading up on the reviews that are on our platform here: https://seedly.sg/reviews/sim-only-mobile-plans For me personally, I moved from Singtel Sim only to Circles Life Sim only And... now finally with GIGA Sim only for the past 6 months, and I would say that in terms of the reception and network coverage I am getting, here's how I would rank them. From Best to Worst Network: 1. SingTel (Islandwide and underground) 2. GIGA (which is using Starhub network) works well even underground on the circle line 3. Circles Life (Which is using M1 network, this one is really not good espeically underground, but their customer service is pretty top notch!) Hope this helps in one way or another!

These new companies are mobile virtual network operators. What they do is to lease the network infrastructure from existing companies (Singtel, Starhub, M1) to provide it's services. redONE uses Starhub's mobile network infrastructure while Grid Mobile taps on Singtel. The network/receptivity issues at certain areas which these big 3 companies will likely carry over.

Unlike other MVNO Mobile Virtual Network Operator. GOMO is fully Digital Telco (Doesn't rides on other service provider). MVNO includes: Zero1, Circles, Giga, Zero and etc I currently holding 2 plan in comparison (Tested with Huawei Mate 20X). Ookla Speed Test (View Quest Station Orchard Gateway) Singtel CIS Combo 3 + Data 4X = 12GB Avg Download and Upload Speed: 66.1Mbps/10.22Mbps Avg Download and Upload Speed After 6PM: 27.9Mbps/6.19 Mbps Gomo by Singtel = 20GB Avg Download and Upload Speed: 51.5Mbps/11.01Mbps Avg Download and Upload Speed After 6PM: 29.2 Mbps/9Mbps If you are heavily rely on calls and sms (ah-hemmm what year is this?) you get only 200 mins and 200 SMSes. For me, my gomo is use purely on my iPad for work and study as i do not need call time. I do know M1 currently have the best deal for money for only $25 per month, 30GB Data, 1000 SMS and Call. If you are the kind of people that really needs calls, stay at Starhub or Port to M1. If you are the kind of people that only needs data for certain devices, go for Gomo. $20 for 20GB is really good value, unless you spend 24/7 watching 4k Cat's video.

What's the appeal of traditional telcos, considering how there are many new providers such as Giga! and Circles?

Traditional telcos still offer lots of discounts for phone (under contract), but to balance this, your monthly fees will be higher compared to Sim only plans. Good for those who wants to keep changing phone every year or so. I'm personally with a traditional telco, M1, but under their Sim only plan. I buy a 1x good phone that can last me for years, but have a cheaper plan so that overall I save money. Moreover M1 sim only plan has 1000 mins, 1000 sms, 30 GB per month, best for all worlds, though connectivity may be abit bad in some parts of the mrt, but overall not a big issue.

How does this Singtel share buyback affect the SingTel shares I am holding? Why do you think SingTel did this?

Companies often conduct share buy back to preserve the value of share prices, especially so in events like this where the market is bleeding left and right. As a shareholder, share buyback by company would be good for you because the circulating supply would be lower. Technically the share buy back would also help support the price slightly in this turbulent times, like how DBS had bought back over 9000 lots recently if I'm not wrong. Another reason why company buy back their share is also because they think that their company is undervalued by the market now. But all in all, a share buyback is good for retail investors like us.

Too big to fail? Just an example, like our local banks, singtel or ascendas reit. Since the probability is low, is it worth it to invest in these companies rather than a etf which has a lower yield?

Too big to fail yes, but their stock prices can still be affected. Too big to fail should only be used to determine if you should buy a bond.

If Sim only plan is cheaper now, why are some people still holding on to contract?

Sim only plans are generally much cheaper because it just covers the basic, even though the basics they covered might be very attractive (eg. high GB data plan). New phones are not part of the Sim only plans. Sim plans subsidies the phone cost, resulting in a short term savings when in comes to get a new phone. Another attractive thing about Sim plans is that the plan itself might comes with additional freebies. For example, Singtel now provides free subscriptions with HOOQ. And of course, there are also some people who continue to stick to Sim plans because their mobile bills are covered by their company. It is a win win situation for these people because they do not need to worry about their monthly bill, and they can get a subsidies phone at the same time.

Thoughts on the possibility of a fully-digital bank? Is it feasible? What would be the pros and cons to this?

Hi Brandon, I guess fully digital banking will allow you to perform transactions anytime anywhere and they will be updated in real time (hopefully), cutting down on uncessary paperwork etc. But the cons of it is the issue of depositing cash (if you have some on hand) and the security of your money inside the digital bank. Would be interested to see how these banks resolves these issues and also convince us about cybersecurity and safety of our money.
