zuolun bro,

for st eng, the dividends shld be maintained ard 10 cts
and payble ard last week of april as results are around the same

It is important to know how to set stop-loss (SL) and take-profit or target profit (TP) levels. These 2 are the most significant elements of trade management. A stop-loss is to limit the losses on an open position. A take-profit is to close a position when a certain price reaches a specified price level in profit (in-the-money).

SELL 5,000 ST Engg shares @ S$3.38 on 30 Jan 2018



BUY 5,000 ST Engg shares @ S$3.39 on 23 Jan 2018



In 2011, I longed Keppel Corp shares at S$7.70 per share and set my SL @ S$7.30. When that price was triggered, I realized a total loss of S$6,000 for that trade.

Back then, my 师姐 was also trying to pick-bottom on Keppel Corp with 3 times higher volume than me. She started higher @ S$8.00 per share and had a tight SL of 2% per trade.  Every trade she did was a loss; each failed attempt was a 2% cut loss. Her trading style was an eye-opening to me because after several failed attempts and finally @ S$7.00 (at the KRD), she increased her long positions substantially whenever the share price shot higher. “行到水穷处,坐看云起时。”

ST Engg: Institutional investors began to SELL and SHORT-SELL since 4 Aug 2017 till to-date (ref. chart dated 6 Oct 2017).

The most powerful volatility breakout indicator is the Bollinger Bands. Relatively narrow band width can predict a big advance or decline. When volatility expands and a stock or index breaks out of a trading range, it signals a change to a period of higher volatility and a possible directional move.

DBS Research ceases coverage of Midas Holdings
Fri, Feb 09, 2018 - 4:35 PM Vivien Shiao #~

DBS Research issued a report on Friday that it is ceasing coverage of Midas Holdings, in the light of its disclosure late on Thursday that it has uncovered several litigations, enforcement orders and court documents involving companies within the group.
This includes an enforcement order filed against key subsidiary Jilin Midas Aluminium for a previously undisclosed liability of 30 million yuan (S$6.3 million). About 12 million yuan out of the unaudited ledger balance of 873 million yuan as at end 2017 was frozen by court orders.
Additionally, several orders are outstanding which freeze certain shares owned by the group, including shares in Luoyang Midas Aluminium and Dalian Huicheng Aluminium as well as its associate Nanjing Puzhen Railway Transport Co.
Midas has also uncovered a number of previously undisclosed corporations related to certain group companies incorporated in China, but it is unable to confirm information on the shareholdings and businesses of these corporations.
In its report, DBS said that it is a "surprising development", and appears to be a "severe lapse in internal process and controls and indicates serious corporate governance issues".
DBS analyst Paul Yong said that immediate key areas of concern would be how large the assets at risk are, whether the group's key businesses can continue to operate, and what the corporate governance lapses involved are and legal redress available, if any.
"Given that we are not able to rely on the group's financial statements, it will be difficult for us to put a value to the stock," wrote the analyst in the report.
Trading in Midas' counter was suspended on Friday with its last traded price at S$0.19.

Tepid DPU growth outlook remains for Hutchison Port Holdings Trust: DBS ~ 6 Feb 2018
https://www.theedgesingapore.com/tepid-dpu-growth-outlook-remains-hutchison-port-holdings-trust-dbs
DBS Vickers Securities is maintaining its “hold” call on Hutchison Port Holdings Trust (HPHT) with an unchanged target price of US$0.39, which is based on a discounted cash flow valuation framework with a 7.4% weighted average cost of capital  and terminal growth rate of 0%.

HPH Trust ~ Broke the uptrend line, downside biased

HPH Trust closed with a hammer @ US$0.34 (-0.011, -3.2%) with high volume done at 88.9m shares on 9 Feb 2018.

Immediate support @ S$0.325, immediate resistance @ S$0.355.



Hutchison Port Holdings Trust fourth quarter earnings retreat ~ 6 Feb 2018
http://www.hphtrust.com/newsroom/20180205_173413_NS8U_ILKBJ3QTG37PE86S.1.pdf

In order to enable a more meaningful comparison of the operating results of HIT(a) , COSCO-HIT(b) and ACT(c) following the commencement of the co-management arrangement on 1 January 2017, management has restated the % variance of certain key operating profit and loss lines by assuming that 1) the co-management arrangement had been effective as at 1 January 2016; and 2) including 100% of the corresponding operating profit and loss lines of COSCO-HIT and ACT into HPH Trust consolidated results. The resultant impact of these assumptions are collectively referred to as “restated % variance”.

Consolidated income statement (01/10/2017-31/12/2017 vs 01/10/2016-31/12/2016)
Revenue and other income for the quarter was HK$2,856.8 million, HK$100.7 million or 3.4% below last year. However, the restated % variance on revenue and other income was comparable to last year. Combined container throughput of HIT, COSCO-HIT and ACT (collectively “HPHT Kwai Tsing”) increased by 0.9% as compared to the same quarter in 2016, primarily due to higher transshipment cargoes but offset by weaker in intra-Asia cargoes.

The container throughput of YICT(d) increased by 10.6% as compared to the same quarter in 2016, primarily driven by growth in the US and transshipment cargoes. Average revenue per TEU for Hong Kong and China were below last year mainly attributed to greater volume of concessions offered to certain liners, as well as, certain revisions on tariffs following the mergers and acquisitions of some liners. In addition, China’s average revenue per TEU was also adversely impacted by higher transshipment mix, but partially offset by RMB appreciation.

Cost of services rendered was HK$1,111.2 million, HK$13.7 million or 1.2% above last year. However, the restated % variance on cost of services rendered was 5.6% above last year. The increase was attributed to higher throughput handled, general cost inflations, including the increase in external contractors’ costs, higher dredging cost at YICT and RMB appreciation, but were partially offset by savings in operation costs arising from improved resources’ allocation efficiencies following the commencement of co-management. Staff costs were HK$70.4 million, HK$0.2 million or 0.3% below last year, which were comparable to the restated % variance. Depreciation and amortisation was HK$769.5 million, HK$37.4 million or 5.1% above last year, mainly due to increase in capex spending. Other operating income was HK$14.9 million, HK$66.1 million or 81.6% below last year, mainly due to the deferral of 2017 dividends from River Ports Economic Benefits to 2018 and the aggregated effect of the receipt of an award, a subsidy for railway business development from the Shenzhen government and gain on disposals of tyres by YICT in 2016.

Other operating expenses were HK$137.5 million, HK$27.0 million or 16.4% below last year. However, the restated % variance on other operating expenses were 8.8% below last year, mainly due to savings in general overheads such as computer maintenance and insurance costs. With the aforesaid, total operating expenses were HK$2,073.7 million, HK$90.0 million or 4.5% above last year.

As a result, total operating profit was HK$783.1 million, HK$190.7 million or 19.6% below last year.

Interest and other finance costs were HK$214.7 million, HK$34.4 million or 19.1% above last year, primarily due to higher HIBOR/ LIBOR applied on the bank loans’ interest rates.

Share of profits less losses after tax of associated companies was a loss of HK$38.0 million, HK$40.4 million or 1,683.3% adverse against last year, mainly reflecting the share of HICT after it was acquired at the end of 2016. Share of profits less losses after tax of joint ventures was HK$19.3 million, HK$10.1 million or 109.8% above last year, mainly due to better combined results of COSCO-HIT and ACT following the co-management arrangement.

Tax recorded a net income of HK$51.7 million, HK$139.4 million or 159.0% better than last year, mainly due to lower profit and higher than last year’s tax savings upon confirmation of qualification as “High and New Technology Enterprise” by YICT Phase III in December 2017 compared to YICT Phase I & II in November 2016, but were partially offset by the increase of West Port Phase I’s tax rates after the expiry of its tax exemption period.

The overall profit for the quarter was HK$601.4 million, HK$116.0 million or 16.2% below last year. Profit attributable to unitholders of HPH Trust was HK$237.8 million, HK$148.0 million or 38.4% below last year.

Consolidated income statement (01/01/2017-31/12/2017 vs 01/01/2016-31/12/2016)
Revenue and other income for the year was HK$11,551.0 million, HK$361.3 million or 3.0% below last year. However, the restated % variance on revenue and other income was 0.6% above last year. Combined container throughput of HPHT Kwai Tsing increased by 5.1% as compared to the same period in 2016, primarily due to higher transshipment cargoes and additional throughput from a new customer. The container throughput of YICT increased by 8.6% as compared to the same period in 2016, primarily driven by growth in the US and transshipment cargoes. Average revenue per TEU for Hong Kong and China were below last year mainly attributed to greater volume of concessions offered to certain liners, as well as, certain revisions on tariffs following the mergers and acquisitions of some liners. In addition, China’s average revenue per TEU was also adversely impacted by higher transshipment mix.

Cost of services rendered was HK$4,131.6 million, HK$119.5 million or 2.8% below last year. However, the restated % variance on cost of services rendered was 3.9% above last year. The increase was attributed to higher throughput handled, general cost inflations, including the increase in external contractors’ costs and higher dredging cost at YICT, but were partially offset by savings in operation costs arising from improved resources’ allocation efficiencies following the commencement of co-management. Staff costs were HK$288.0 million, HK$9.4 million or 3.2% below last year. However, the restated % variance on staff costs were 1.0% below last year. Depreciation and amortisation was HK$3,003.3 million, HK$86.8 million or 3.0% above last year mainly due to the increase in capex spending and the operational commencement of YICT Phase III Expansion South Berth and West Port Phase II in early 2016. Other operating income was HK$25.4 million, HK$63.4 million or 71.4% below last year, mainly due to the deferral of 2017 dividends from River Ports Economic Benefits to 2018 and the aggregated effect of the receipt of an award, a subsidy for railway business development from the Shenzhen government and gain on disposals of tyres by YICT in 2016

Other operating expenses were HK$552.0 million, HK$240.0 million or 76.9% above last year. However, the restated % variance on other operating expenses were 93.9% above last year. This was predominantly due to the effect of the government rent and rates refund of HK$430.0 million received during the first quarter of 2016 by HIT but were partially offset by savings in general overheads. With the aforesaid, total operating expenses were HK$7,949.5 million, HK$261.3 million or 3.4% above last year.

As a result, total operating profit was HK$3,601.5 million, HK$622.6 million or 14.7% below last year.

Interest and other finance costs were HK$856.9 million, HK$155.7 million or 22.2% above last year, primarily due to higher HIBOR/ LIBOR applied on the bank loans’ interest rates

Share of profits less losses after tax of associated companies was a loss of HK$116.4 million, HK$134.1 million or 757.6% adverse against below last year, mainly reflecting the share of HICT after it was acquired at the end of 2016.

Share of profits less losses after tax of joint ventures was HK$76.4 million, HK$17.2 million or 29.1% above last year, mainly due to better combined results of COSCO-HIT and ACT following the co-management arrangement.

Tax was HK$487.1 million, HK$158.7 million or 24.6% below last year, primarily due to lower profit and tax savings from YICT Phase III as it qualified as “High and New Technology Enterprise” in December 2017 which allows a preferential corporate income tax for 3 years with effect from 1 January 2017, but were partially offset by the increase of West Port Phase I’s tax rates after the expiry of its tax exemption period.

Overall, profit and profit attributable to unitholders of HPH Trust was HK$2,217.5 million and HK$944.2 million respectively. Excluding HIT’s rent and rates refund in 2016, profit was HK$379.5 million or 14.6% below last year and profit attributable to unitholders of HPH Trust was HK$412.4 million or 30.4% below last year. Including HIT’s rent and rates refund in 2016, profit and profit attributable to unitholders of HPH Trust was 24.9% and 44.9% below last year respectively.

The US$ plunged in value to lose almost a tenth of its value last year, measured against a basket of global currencies. That is the dollar’s first decline in 5 years and its biggest annual fall since 2003 when it tumbled almost 15%, according to the ICE dollar index.

First thing we should do is dissect the S&P since this is the “broad market” indicator of choice for most equity market players. Currently, we have equal legs in price from the 2011 lows following the “flash crash” to 2015 highs, which equals the lows in 2016 to the highs of 2018. Obviously, it was equal in price, just not equal in time. But the formation is an AB=CD move (blue lines). You can also see we have not reached the 261% Fibonacci ratio which is at 2990 either, which may or may not still happen in this current uptrend.

SGX drops nearly 9% on end of India equities data

By Simon Mundy in Mumbai
12 February 2018

The share price of Singapore Exchange fell as much as 8.8% on Monday on news from late on Friday that India's main stock exchanges are to stop providing data to foreign index providers.

The joint announcement was a blow to SGX, which was the main foreign provider of India equity derivative products, notably a product tracking the benchmark Nifty 50 index.

It came a week after India's annual budget had announced plans to reintroduce long-term capital gains tax on equity investments – a move that some analysts predicted would hasten the migration of trading to foreign markets.

In their joint statement, the National Stock Exchange, the BSE exchange, and the Metropolitan Stock Exchange said the decision was taken because "the volumes in derivative trading based on Indian securities including indices have reached large proportions in some of the foreign jurisdictions, resulting in migration of liquidity from India, which is not in the best interest of Indian markets".

Existing agreements for licensing Indian securities prices for derivatives to be traded offshore "shall be terminated with immediate effect", subject to contractually agreed notice periods, the announcement said.

The most powerful volatility breakout indicator is the Bollinger Bands. Relatively narrow band width can predict a big advance or decline. When volatility expands and a stock or index breaks out of a trading range, it signals a change to a period of higher volatility and a possible directional move.

Indeed, the operating cashflow is in stark contrasts with the modest annual net income reported, that takes into account non-cash gains. It is thus not surprising why the company borrows heavily on an unsecured, subordinated basis – to plug the cash gap.

S&P 500 Index: Panic selling overdone

By Jeremy Ng
February 12, 2018



As the S&P 500 index crumbled in the past week, fireworks were lid in the volatile complex. The mother of all short squeeze occurred in the VIX index as it spiked up 218% from 11.71 to 37.3 since the S&P 500 index hit a record high on 29 January 2018. At the same time, the S&P 500 index only corrected 8.79%. The disproportionate move between the S&P 500 index and VIX index was mainly due to the over excessive shorts in Volatility where speculators have been piling on since 2017, expecting things to remain relatively calm. At one point, the amount of shorts in the Futures market according to COT report hit an unprecedented high of 354,000 contracts.

Short squeeze of epic proportion creates chaos to the market as weak hands are forced to close out their position, thus further lifting the VIX index higher, starting the vicious cycle.

However, with the recent panic selling in the equity market, we might be seeing some opportunities to hop back on the market. The selloff that happened over the past two weeks took the S&P 500 index down 12% from the 2878 all-time high to the 6 February 2018 intraday day low of 2529.

Historically, the market does not just form an inverted V shape top at the cyclical high at the end of the economic boom cycle. Instead, there is always some form of consolidation, distribution at the top before the market rolls over. Corrections of up to -10% over a short timeframe are a norm when the market is reaching the cyclical peak, but a rebound back to the prior high usually happens. It can be seen as the last rally before the blow-off top forms.

For example, both the Dot-com high and Great Financial Crisis high saw wild market gyrations at the top for around 11 months before the market establishes the final top. During the Dot-Com peak period, there were three occasions where the S&P 500 index experienced corrections ranging between -11% to -14%. These corrections were eventually halted where the last dead-cat bounce took price back into the record highs before the market eventually rolled over.

The same happened during the GFC high period where the S&P 500 index underwent a -12% correction in July 2007 before the market entered into the last leg higher.

Therefore, we might be seeing a replay here as the most recent panic selling led to a -12% correction in the S&P 500 index. Expect limited downside moving forward and a rebound higher as buyers target the 2870 record high.

Moreover, from the price action perspective, on the daily timeframe, some sign of stabilization appeared lately after buyers found some support at the confluence of 200 day moving average and 2542 support area. After plunging to an intraday low of 2529 on 6 February, relentless buying surfaced and succeeded in closing the S&P 500 index at 2699, near the days high. As a result, the 6% recovery off the 2529 intraday low formed a strong hammer bullish reversal pattern signals a potential turn around back into the uptrend.

Just before the S&P 500 index peaked, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) was trading above the overbought condition for a whopping 18 trading days suggesting extreme euphoria. Hence, the recent selloff has rebalanced the market structure by getting rid of the extreme buying sentiment as the RSI crashed back down into a more normalized range. In fact, the RSI signalled oversold condition on 5 February as it hit a low of 26 suggesting a rebound higher next.

Thus, with the strong hammer bullish price action and oversold RSI, expect the S&P 500 index to head back into the prior uptrend to retest the 2800 resistance area. A more critical level to watch on the downside is the 2500 psychological support area.

Feng Shui Masters Say Bet on Drugmakers in the Year of The Dog
By Narae Kim
13 February 2018, 16:43 GMT+8 Updated on 14 February 2018, 05:00 GMT+8
CLSA Chinese New Year index sees strong runs for HSI in 1Q, 4Q
Mixed outlook for casinos, transport; banks to underperform
CLSA’s Alec So discusses the tongue-in-cheek alternative look at what’s in store for you and the Hang Seng Index.
Pharmaceutical shares could be a real shot in the arm for investors during the Year of the Dog if the stock market predictions of feng shui forecasters are to be believed. However, banks and the auto and machinery sectors are much less auspicious, they say.

In the runup to every Chinese New Year, CLSA Ltd. issues a light-hearted report giving forecasts for Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index based on the ancient system governing energy flows.

This time the Feng Shui Index predictions come after a year that saw the city’s equity market record a 36 percent rally, making it one of the world’s best performers.

Boom and Bust
Here's how the Hang Seng Index has fared in past Years of the Dog


Source: Bloomberg

Note: Hang Seng Index values normalized to show percentage change.

Despite heavy losses in the market in the past 10 days or so, authors Sally Chan and Alec So -- A.K.A. the Sorcerer’s Apprentice and the Wand Bearer -- see the Hang Seng getting off to a strong start in the Year of the Dog, which begins on Feb. 16. Healthcare, consumer stocks and the paper industry should excel, they say.

Feb. 28 is forecast to be particularly lucky -- good news for those who follow China’s economic indicators as the purchasing managers index is due that day.

Casino and transportation stocks will fare poorly in the first three months before storming back in the final quarter, they say, helping the market to gather speed and end the year on a high note.

The months between will see the “fire force” dominant, the pair add, melting gold and prosperity as the dog days of summer set in. There will be a few bright spots such as tech, telcos, utilities and construction, though property and renewables will lag behind.

The authors couldn’t help crowing about their forecasts for the outgoing Year of the Rooster, saying they were “fairly accurate” as they correctly predicted a slow start for the Hang Seng and a climb from April through August. However, they said the Hang Seng outperformed their predictions over the summer, “perching higher than we’d thought possible.”

As for their Year of the Dog predictions, it seems the feng shui pair could be barking up the wrong tree as CLSA admits that investors may do better following its analysts’ calls.

Singapore Budget 2018: Winners and Losers

More stories by Abhishek Vishnoi
19 February 2018, 7:25 PM SGT

Commercial buildings stand in the central business district in Singapore, on Friday, Feb. 16, 2018.

Photographer: Ore Huiying/Bloomberg
A range of tax increases, including a 2 percentage point increase to 9 percent in the goods and services levy, were unveiled by Singapore Finance Minister Heng Swee Keat in his budget speech to Parliament as among measures to financially equip the city state for financial pressures that will come with a rapidly aging population.

The government’s fiscal 2018 budget comes less than a week after data showed the island nation’s economy grew at a slower pace in the fourth quarter than previously estimated and the government forecast expansion will moderate this year as an export boom that began in 2017 eases.

Higher taxes were expected by all 12 economists in a Bloomberg News survey, with 11 anticipating the GST would be increased. Heng surprised, however, with a hike to 4 percent from 3 percent in the top marginal stamp duty on properties worth more than S$1 million ($762,000), with the change effective tomorrow.

Here are some of the biggest winners and losers of the Singapore budget.

WINNERS:

Rebate -- Corporate income tax rebate raised to 40% for 2018, and extended to 20% in 2019
Companies spending on research and development will benefit from a plan to increase tax deductions to 250%

This chart has nailed it so far, and if it continues, the market is in big trouble

Published: Mar 1, 2018 3:59 p.m. ET

Last month, MarketWatch used a chart overlay to illustrate how the stock market under John F. Kennedy has closely followed its performance over the same time frame with Donald Trump in the White House. Fast forward three weeks and, as of Wednesday’s close, the S&P 500 SPX, -1.33% in relative terms, sat almost exactly where it did at this point during Kennedy’s administration.

If the trend persists—a HUGE if, of course—prepare for some rather steep losses in the coming weeks. Perhaps it’s already started, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -1.68%  down nearly 600 points at its Thursday low.

“After 328 trading days since election day, the Trump S&P 500 sits right on top of the JFK S&P 500,” the blogger behind the Global Macro Monitor wrote. ”The index, 328 trading days after the election day of each president, is less than five basis points within one another. Rather stunning, don’t you think?”

Here’s what it looks like:


It isn’t just a coincidence, either, according to the blogger, who says the current S&P has the same theme, setup, and backdrop as the JFK postelection rally and bear market in 1961-62. He also warned that the fundamental drivers of the recent declines are uncannily similar to those of the 1987 rout.

The chart shows stocks losing almost 30% of their value in the coming weeks before bottoming out in June. A stretch? Maybe.

thanks for watching!
But the Global Macro Monitor isn’t ruling it out.

“Of course, they will not track perfectly, but they are thus far rhyming with each other on fairly consistent basis,” the blogger wrote, referencing the quote often attributed to Mark Twain that history “doesn’t repeat itself but it often rhymes.”

Creative ~ 咸鱼翻身 (Salted fish comes back to life)

Creative had an inverted hammer and traded @ S$6.60 (+0.69, +11.7%) with 1.37m shares done on 9 Mar 2018 at 1200 hrs.



Creative co-founder nets $1.8m from share sales

Ex-chief technical officer capitalises on recent price rally

By Yunita Ong
8 Mar 2018

Creative Technology co-founder Ng Kai Wa has cashed out on a small fraction of his holdings in the home-grown technology company, capitalising on a recent price rally that has risen multiple folds in the space of a week. He netted a cool $1.8 million from selling 200,000 shares from his extensive holding.

On Monday, he earned $939,150 from selling 104,350 shares. That was the day the shares hit heights not seen in a decade after bullish reports emerged about its "3D audio" technology.

They soared to as high as $9.77 in intra-day trade, before closing up $3.62 at $8.75.

The next day, he cashed out on another 95,650 shares, which netted him $868,799, according to Singapore Exchange filings posted yesterday after trading hours.

Altogether, he sold the shares at an average price of $9.04 apiece.

Mr Ng, who resigned from Creative in July 1995 as chief technical officer (CTO), still owns 2.14 million shares of the company, or 3.055 per cent of the issued capital.

He remains an independent, non-executive director of Creative.

In the same year he quit his CTO post, Mr Ng co-founded broadband access IP telephony supplier InnoMedia and is now chairman and chief executive officer.

Creative last week showcased its new Super X-Fi audio product - which can be plugged into devices to deliver a listening experience similar to how people hear in real life - to analysts' cheer.

DBS analyst Sachin Mittal said in a March 1 report that the new technology "could be a much-needed lifeline for the company".

Creative shares began their rally on Feb 23, when they nearly doubled in value, prompting a Singapore Exchange query.

The surge came after The Business Times ran a story about Super X-Fi, following an interview with Creative co-founder and chief executive Sim Wong Hoo, who said it was the culmination of US$100 million (S$131 million) in research spending over more than 20 years.

Creative's dongle is expected to be released in the middle of the year at a price of US$150.

Creative was a former investor darling after storming the market with its Sound Blaster audio processing card, widely used in the 1990s in personal computers.

But its sound products have struggled to stay ahead due to competition from the likes of Apple and, at the low end, cheaper China-made alternatives.

Creative recorded a second-quarter net loss of US$4.2 million for the three months to Dec 31, as revenues sagged 6 per cent year-on-year to US$20.9 million.

Creative shares yesterday fell $1.22 to $7.08 as traders took profit following the steep price run-up.
