This is the concluding part of blog posts on the same subject matter.
The table shows financial result of 14 companies with full year results ending 31 December 2015.
|Stock||Net Profit ($m)||Change (%)||TY Dividend ($)||LY Dividend ($)|
What is obvious is that marine and offshore type of businesses were badly affected by slump in oil prices. Net profits declined when compared with previous year. SembCorp Marine even registered loss in its profit & loss.
Next sector not doing well was property developers. UOL and CapitaLand both registered a drop in net profits for the year.
Telco’s performances were flat. Public transport companies did well.
The table below shows 8 companies with latest quarterly results. Most are third quarter performances ending 31 December 2015.
|Stock||Net Profit ($m)||Change (%)||TY Dividend ($)||LY Dividend ($)||Remarks|
|SIA Engr||49.4||6.7||0||0||Third Qtr|
|Singapore Post||43.5||0.6||0.015||0.0125||Third Qtr|
Except for SGX, Singtel and SingPost, all companies did well.
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 26 February 2016. The data is sorted by P/B values from lowest to the highest.
|Stock||NAV ($)||Share Price||P/B|
The property developers were trading at low P/B ratios. Both SembCorp Industries, Keppel Corp, and three local banks DBS, UOB and OCBC were trading below 1.0.
Note: 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.
