Latest quarterly results (Part 3)

Companies were starting to release their latest quarterly financial results. I looked at some blue-chip companies that are mainly from the STI component stocks. Some are mid-cap stocks. Most companies have 31 December as their year-end.

The table shows financial result of 6 companies.

Stock Net Profit ($m) Change (%) TY Dividend ($) LY Dividend ($) Remarks
OCBC 3,903.0 2.0 0.36 0.36 Full Year
UOB 3,209.0 -1.2 0.90 0.75 Full Year

SATS 60.6 12.8 0 0 Third Qtr
SembCorp Marine -289.6 nm 0.06 0.13 Full Year

Net Profit in 2015 for OCBC rose 2.0% to $3,903 million. UOB’s net profit declined 1.2% in comparison. Current year total dividend for UOB is 90 cents due in part to a special dividend of 20 cents in 2015. (Last Year was 75 cents). 

Net Profit for Comfort Delgro rose 6.5% in 2015. Net Profit for SATS rose 12.8% for the whole year. Both companies did well.

StarHub maintained a steady net profit for the whole year (+0.5%).

The following table shows the latest reported net asset values (NAV) of these companies. The Price to Book (P/B) ratios were computed based on share prices of 16 February 2016.

Stock NAV ($) Share Price ($) P/B
OCBC 8.03 7.77 0.97
UOB 17.84 17.81 1.00

All Price to Book (P/B) ratios are more than 1.00 except OCBC at 0.97 times of Net Asset Value.
