Companies were reporting their financial results for the quarter ended 30 September 2015. In this post, I looked at the banking sector and the telecommunication services sector.
The following table provides information on net profit attributable to shareholders for the quarter and year-on-year change between 2015 against 2014. Dividend column shows dividend declared for the quarter.
|Counter||Net Profit ($m)||YoY Change (%)||NAV ($)||Div ($)||ROE (%)|
NAV = Net Asset Value
Div = Dividend
DBS’ net profits increased 6% whereas UOB and OCBC declined.
In the case of OCBC, “excluding a $391 million one-off gain realised a year ago, the Group’s core net profit, however, grew 7% year-on-year”.
When comparing Return on Equity (ROE), UOB had the best ROE at 11.8% followed by OCBC (11.2%) and DBS (10.9%).
While celebrating 80th Anniversary, UOB declared a special cash dividend of 20 cents per share.
StarHub outperformed by increasing third quarter results by 21.5%. M1 and Singtel were flat with Singtel (-0.8%) and M1 (+0.8%).
