Summary of May 2017 Transactions

After monitoring Tai Sin Electric for almost a month, I decide to make a buy transaction. I did not add it to my stock portfolio but instead I added it to my spouse’s stock portfolio. She has now 5 stocks in her stock portfolio!

If you read my post on Looking at Tai Sin Electric Limited Market Depth, there is good support at S$0.425. Buying and selling is very similar to supply and demand. There is quite a high volume asking for S$0.46 and a lot of bid volume at S$0.42 and S$0.425.

Based on My Personal Analysis of Tai Sin Electric Limited, this will give a dividend yield return of more than 5% for my spouse.

The risk here is the slowing down of construction and infrastructure projects in Singapore. Outweighing the growth potential versus the investment risks, that is how I came to the decision to add this stock to my spouse’s stock portfolio. The management has proven to be able to ride through difficult times and I shall monitor if they are able to ride through the current storm and continue to growth Tai Sin Electric Limited and return more value to its shareholders.

Summary of February 2017 Transactions

In the month of February 2017, I made two sell transactions. I have divested Far East Hospitality Trust and NeraTel. You can read more on Far East Hospitality Trust at Far East Hospitality Trust Undervalued or Value Trap?  and NeraTel at NeraTel – An Abandoned Child.

There are a few stocks in my watch list such as Acromec, ISOTeam, Hock Lian Seng, Tai Sin Electric and many more but I shall not be investing in them now with the cash gotten from the sale of Far East Hospitality Trust and NeraTel. The reason is I need more time to do more research and analysis. After a year on, I am still sticking to investing for dividends. If the stock is a growth stock, it will be a plus. (more…)

NeraTel – An Abandoned Child

Prior to writing this post, I have divested all my NeraTel shares at a loss of 14.2%. This is including of the dividends I have collected. I shall share the reasons why I made the decision to do so.

NeraTel announced its 4Q2016 financial results on 22nd February 2017. After the sale of its payment solution business to Ingenico, NeraTel business is left with the Telecommunication business segment and Network Infrastructure business segment.

In 4Q2016, revenue from the Telecommunication business segment decreased slightly by 4% ($0.8 million) from $19.1 million to $18.3 million. Revenue from the Network Infrastructure business segment improved by 54.0% ($11.0 million) from $20.3 million to $31.3 million.

If we compare FY16 with FY15, revenue increased by 22.3% ($19.9 million) from $134.8 million to $164.9 million. Although revenue has increased, gross profit for FY 2016 declined by 6.6% from $45.2 million to $42.2 million. Why? (more…)
