Singapore stock calls for 30 August 2017

PM Lee didn't offer to help China but offer to help USA.

No wonder SG is part of China's anti-dumping probe.

No wonder China no longer trusts SG.

OMG! Singapore is part of China's anti-dumping probe!

See! We already stated on numerous occasions that China didn't regard SG as a friendly country but our government always said that China-SG relationship was strong and good.  Does this anti-dumping probe show the good relationship between SG & China?

Malaysia is a rubber plantation country and exports a lot of rubber but there is no anti-dumping probe from China because it is having a good China-MY relationship.

The China-India border dispute had shown to China its foes.

The China-India border had settled amicably but it also had shown to China which countries were anti-China.  It's a fact that India's incursion was illegal but some countries still supported the perpetrator overtly and disregarded the international law.

Japan and Australia supported India overtly by expressing remarks supporting India's stance and Israel sold weapons to India during the standoff.  China had taken cognizant of their anti-China stances and would be wary of them in the future.  Fortunately, Singapore was keeping its silence about this.

North Korea fired a missile across Japan. Is it illegal? No!

Is North Korea missile firing breaching any international law?  No! Why?

I'm not trying to speak up for North Korea but just trying to state a fact that the media is omitting.

According to international law, any airspace 100km above the land is considered international airspace.  As the NK missile was flying at an estimated 500km above Japan, it was considered to be in international airspace and its action was not illegal.  The missile landed in the international sea and also was not breaching any international law.  Therefore, NK was not doing anything illegal at all.  However, no media reported this based on international law but from the political perspective.

For the same reason, micro satellites are orbiting few hundreds of kilometres above the land around the globe legally without breaching any sovereignty territory or international law.  No country can protest that a foreign satellite is orbiting above its sky.

We just want to present a true fact from the legal perspective and educate our readers that politics rule this world instead of law.

Russian tanker doesn't need to pass through Singapore port anymore!

Russian tanker can use Arctic to deliver its oil and gas now without using the Suez Canal.  When the ship doesn't pass through Suez Canal, it also doesn't need to pass through Strait of Malacca and Singapore.  Singapore will have lesser incomes from shipping now as more ships will use the new Arctic route.

Rickmers Maritime to delist tomorrow.

Goodbye Rickmers Maritime!

This won't be the first and the last but is the beginning of the collapse.

USA is trying to put the blame of its destroyer's collision on China.

What is USA thinking?  Putting the blame of its collision on China's hacking?

If USA destroyer is so easy to hack, then it shouldn't be out at sea anymore because it poses a clear and present danger to other merchant ships.

This also means that the destroyer is not combat-operational as it is easily hackable.

The USA is trying to fabricate false intelligence again!

South Korea wants to get involved in KL-SG HSR.

I believe Malaysia will not want to offend China by awarding the HSR to the South Korea consortium.  China is really pissed off with SK for THAAD installation because THAAD is useless against NK's mobile rocket launchers.

Political battles are playing out in China - Part 2

If the rumour is true, those who try to help Wanda's chairman will be closely monitored by the government.  R&F will be a high profile target by the government.

India chickens out after 2-month stand off.

After seeing China's troops build up and large scale military exercises near the border, India has cowered in and agreed to withdraw.  Afterall, India has no legitimate reason for the incursion and cannot garner international support for its action.

Outrage of Modesty (OM) has increased in Singapore.

Singapore is no longer as safe as before for women.  Women have to be more careful when they go out in Singapore.

Singapore vs China in future economic developments.

What's our future in Singapore?  What's our grandeur plans?

The 2017 national rally speech primarily focused on pre-schooling, diabetics and technology embracement in the future which are mostly sociological in nature.  Will tackling these 3 sociological hurdles help Singapore to leap forward?  Are we at our wits' end now?

Let's look at what China focuses on.

China is focusing on Space, AI and Robotics developments while Singapore is only importing these technologies at its best because our government is focusing on technology embracement.  In other words, we only focus on the usages.  China has its own self-developed driverless transportation systems now while we're only importing the driverless system.

Financially, China has already developed its own financial technological systems like Alipay, QR code payment, Wechat financial system, etc.  Conversely, Singapore is just importing the QR code payment from China because of technology embracement.

It will become more demoralizing if I continue with the list and our prognosis will become bleaker.

Therefore, I will stop here to let you ponder over our future.

Vietnam has been eyeing Taiwan's Taiping island for a long time.

It has been internationally recognised that Taiping island belongs to Taiwan and Vietnam has been trying to rob Taiping island from Taiwan.  Therefore, Taiwan has the right to conduct any military exercise on Taiping island.

Vietnam is shamelessly protesting this by trying to distort the historical claim that Taiping island is under Vietnam's territory.  Vietnam is an overly ambitious country and Singapore doesn't trust Vietnam at all.  This distrust is evident from our late PM Lee's action against Vietnam.

USD dollar has just hit the lowest for the year 2017.

This is a one year chart and we can see that USD has just hit the lowest for 2017.

Is USA depreciating its USD deliberately to boost its exports for its own economic growth and also increase its own inflation rate so that it can hike interest rates?

An introduction of Malacca Gateway.

Malacca Gateway is truly a majestic development which will surpass any development in Singapore insofar.

This development is truly amazing!  Once this is completed, it will definitely replace Singapore as a shipping hub with China's port alliance.  This is not a question of IF but WHEN.

When there is a typhoon, just stay indoor and do not fight the nature.

Russia is showing to the USA that it will get involved in the Korean peninsula war.

Russia is telling the world with a show of force that it will get involved in the Korean peninsula war.  This is also sending a clear signal to the USA not to attack North Korea unilaterally.

Great job, Putin!

Hahaha! Japanese historian proved that Diaoyu belonged to China.

This is really funny.  More and more Japanese are fed up with its own government.

First, NHK published a documentary to prove that Unit 731 existed and committed atrocities that the Japanese government denied.

Next, Japanese historian provided an ancient Japanese map which showed that Diaoyu belonged to China.  This proved that the USA and Japan robbed Diaoyu from China after WW2.

The historical facts are present everywhere in the world and it's getting harder for Japanese to change its unglamorous history.

Vietnam calls for unity in Southeast Asia. What a joke!

This is really making a mockery out of Southeast Asia.  If you look at the timeline, Vietnam was the first to start building infrastructures on disputed islands in South China Sea.  Vietnam also robbed an island from Taiwan during bad weather in South China Sea in the past.

How to trust Vietnam when it is a troublemaker by itself?  Our late PM Lee didn't trust Vietnam in the past and we must not trust Vietnam too.  Our late PM Lee was the first PM in the world to write to the Thai King to warn about the bellicose Vietnam and also encouraged the USA to attack Vietnam which sparked off the Vietnam war.

Trade war between USA and China will start soon!

Trump is violating WTO rules by unilaterally invoking its US section 301 trade act.  International trading rules must be preserved and respected.  Trump should file a complaint to WTO and fight it out with China in WTO court of arbitration instead of using its own archaic law.

By taking such unilateral action, China will also follow suit and won't follow WTO rules by invoking its own trading act.  When 2 titans fight, the world trading will suffer because these 2 countries will impose unreasonably high taxes against each other.  This ensuing outcome will create economic problems for the whole world.

Last but not least, China has the population size and money to fight an economic war with the USA but the USA doesn't have the deep pocket like China.  Many USA firms operating in China will suffer too in such an economic war.

Lee Hsien Loong gets court approval to jail his nephew Li Sheng Wu.

Why is PM Lee so adamant in bludgeoning his own nephew?

This was because PM Lee's younger brother, LHY, destroyed PM Lee's son political career as the PM's son was forced to issue a statement that he was not interested in any political career.  Therefore, PM Lee must ensure that LHY's son also cannot enter politics in the future.

LHL and LHY will NEVER get along because the rift is too deep since this saga has supervened upon the younger generation.

Tan Cheng Block's appeal was dismissed by the high court.

This is not surprising at all.  I would be surprised if the court ruled in Tan's favour.

Notwithstanding the court's dismission, our readers know the real first elected president in Singapore.

This is the danger of a one-party system.  The one-party system can change historical facts and events.

China-India border scuffle at Ladakh

From the leaked out video, the Chinese soldiers were winning the fight and the Indian soldiers were retreating with their flag.  However, the Indian news media reported that they won the fight and forced the Chinese soldiers back into the China territory.

The Indians couldn't even win in an unarmed close combat fight and they wanted to go to war with China.

Singapore over promises and under delivers for the BRI involvement.

We did state previously in our posting that it was impossible for SG to compete with China & HK for the BRI financing.  Please see our posting below.

SG wants to help to finance for the BRI but it just doesn't have the capability to do that because China & HK are more financially savvier than SG.  SG doesn't realize that China has overtaken SG in terms of technology and financial capabilities and still think that it can advise China on developments.

Last but not least, we monitor China developments and our readers can get some updates on China developments on our blog especially those who are intransigent about China.

Climate change is causing a lot of weird clouds nowadays.

We need to stop global warming now or we're killing ourselves.

AWARE is trying to destroy our military forces.

Without harsh words and hurtful psychological stresses, our military forces will be very weak and we can never fight a war with such weak mentality.

If you look at the military trainings in other western countries like USA and Russia, their military trainings involve verbal and physical abuses to turn their men into tough operational forces.

Men in Singapore have a responsibility to protect Singapore compared to other men in other countries but AWARE doesn't understand this.  National interest is above all other things in Singapore because without a strong and tough military force, there won't be Singapore.

I'm very disappointed in AWARE for having such a myopic viewpoint.

Who helped North Korea to develop its missiles program?

The articles pointed out that Ukraine was the main culprit because it was selling the rocket engines in the black market and Iran provided the guidances.

Therefore, China and Russia are not the parties involved.

Li Sheng Wu, son of LHY, fled Singapore.

This shows that he has no confidence in our judiciary system because he believes it will be manipulated by his uncle, PM Lee.

If a man of his stature doesn't believe in Singapore, we have to ponder about our future in Singapore too.

South Korea wants to honour comfort women.

South Korea trashes Japan's hope to cover up its war crimes by honouring comfort women in the buses.

Our PM Lee was definitely offending South Korea and China by asking Japan to stop apologizing for its war crimes.  Singapore was also a victim back then but we must support Japan because of our close fraternity with the USA.  Sigh!

This Chinese invented robot takes the world by storm.

This robot can explore mars and the moon with no problem.

Japan government cannot hide its war crimes anymore!

NHK, a Japanese media, had published a documentary about Unit 731 which the Japanese government had denied.  The truth shocked the Japanese citizens!

Even with this documentary, the Japanese government still refuses to acknowledge its war crimes.

Furthermore, our PM Lee also supported Japan's stance by asking Japan not to apologize anymore.

Malaysia warns Singapore about its ringgit futures trading.

Since SG is a financial hub, SG is able to influence the ringgit movement if the ringgit futures is left unchecked when the trading becomes popular.

Malaysia central bank doesn't want Singapore to affect the ringgit movement.  No wonder Malaysia sent out a message that China radar system would be placed in JB.

We did mention in one of our posts that Malaysia won't be accommodative towards SG because it had China support. Look like Malaysia is getting tough on Singapore now.  I wonder how Malaysia will punish SG if SG refuses to stop the trading of ringgit futures.

Singapore economy is growing strongly.

Our economy grew 2.9% in the 2nd quarter year on year.  Hooray!

Wait....How come we don't feel the good economic growth?

Well, let's look at the GDP composition.

GDP = G + I + C + Net Export (X - M)

G= Government spending
I = Investments (FDI)
C = Consumption
Net Ex = X - M, Export - Import

GIC will impact Singaporeans more directly than Net Ex.  Net Ex is more like trading which will result in trade surplus or trade deficit for Singapore.

Since C is a negligible component of Singapore GDP as we are a small nation with a small population, we can only rely on GI and Net Ex for boosting our GDP.

However, our good GDP growth is derived primarily from Net Ex this time.  Therefore, we don't feel much impact from the good GDP figure unless you are in the trading industry.

Noble financial update!

Here's a synopsis of Noble's financial health:

Noble wrote down $1.3b in the first half of 2017.

Noble has a $2b credit facility expiring in Oct 2017.

The last leg to fall will be a liquidity squeeze caused by an increase in commodity prices.  Noble will have to put up more money to buy commodities when the prices rise just to maintain the same profit margin.  This will make Noble keel over.

Economic 101 - Don't let the unemployment rate fool you!

In a perfect world, high economic growth will have low unemployment rate and low economic growth will have high unemployment rate.  However, we do not live in a perfect world and there is a paradox in every theory.  Therefore, we can have a low economic growth and a rising unemployment rate in an economy like Singapore.  Rising unemployment rate seems like a benign factor in this case.  How true is this?

The paradox arises from the definition of being unemployed.  An unemployed person is considered unemployed if he is actively looking for a job but cannot get a job within 6 months.  Thereafter, he is no longer considered unemployed because he will be categorized as out of the labour force as his interest in finding a job has disappeared after 6 months.

The labour force consists of employed and unemployed persons (Employed + Unemployed).

The calculation of the unemployment rate:
Unemployment rate = No. of unemployed / labour force

Let's exemplify the paradox with some examples.

Example A:
Labour force = 100 persons (Employed + Unemployed)
Employed = 95
Unemployed = 5

Unemployment rate = 5/100 = 5%

Example B;
Let's say 1 person cannot find a job in 6 months after actively looking for a job and he is considered to be out of the labour force.  Therefore, the following will change.
Labour force = 99 (1 is out of the labour force)
Employed = 95 (remain constant)
Unemployed = 4 (1 is out of the unemployed because he is out of the labour force)

Unemployment rate = 4/99 = 4%

As you can see, the number of employed persons is the same (95) in both examples but the unemployment rate has improved from 5% to 4%.  This happens without any improvement in the economic growth and the government can claim credit for lowering the unemployment rate by doing nothing.

Therefore, when you read any unemployment rate figure, please remember to look at the details and not just the headline number which can be very misleading.

The risk-free rate is at 2.26 now and if you factor in the 2% inflation, you are virtually making no income out of buying the 10-year treasury bond.  This lack of money-making opportunity forces investors to seek higher returns in riskier assets and causes bubbles in other assets.

The FED's intention is to increase interest rates gradually so that it will have ammunitions to handle the next recession.  However, when the bond yields start to rise rapidly, the risk-averse investors will flock to bonds and dump riskier assets that they bought previously.  This is why Alan Greenspan said that stock market would crash when the bond bubble burst.

This too-fast-too-furious event is not reflected in the mindsets of ordinary investors yet because VIX is showing great complacency among investors.

China has given India the ultimatum to leave China's border.

We did mention in our previous post that a border war was likely to break out in August if India didn't retreat from China's border.

India is asking for troubles.  Many Indians will die if India doesn't retreat.

Watch out for DBS's 2nd half earnings report.

DBS is obviously not providing enough provision for its exposure to the oil and gas industry.  This Indian CEO said the worst was over in Feb 2017.  If the worst was already over, why would there be a need for more provision than previous guidance?

We were skeptical about its under provision because DBS was not forthcoming with its exposure to Ezra.

Wow! China is exporting its electricity!

Besides exporting its technologies, China is also exporting its electricity to ASEAN.  This will at least help some developing countries in meeting their energy needs before they can be self-sufficient by building more power stations.

Climate change will decimate India more than anything else.

India should get its priority right.  Climate change will decimate its country and economy more than anything else.  India, take my advice and stop invading your neighbours.

India will have a big problem feeding its huge population because its land size is only 1/3 of China.  Crops can't grow on parched lands and many parts of India don't have access to potable water.  All these problems are of paramount importance to India right now.  Time is running out for India!

Are you pissed when your government treats you like this?

Singapore bred citizens have to pay more than newly converted citizens!

What's next? Singapore bred citizens have to accept lower salaries than newly converted citizens?

Wow! Malaysia will have autonomous trains soon!

China is exporting its high technologies to other countries now.  Malaysia will have autonomous trains soon and also learn the technology from China.

This is one of the benefits of being China-friendly.  Malaysia will overtake Singapore in the future because of China.

SIA is facing headwinds now!

Look like economic downturn is coming soon!

SIA is asking its staffs to take no-pay leaves due to an oversupply of manpower.  Why?  This means that SIA is not getting enough passengers on board its planes which don't require a lot of working staffs. Why are there fewer passengers?  Is SIA losing passengers to other airliners or economic downturn is causing passengers to travel lesser?  Maybe businesses are turning to web conferences for business meetings and negotiations.

This is something to ponder about seriously.

Who is the richest man in the world? Nope, it's not Bill Gates.

The richest man in the world is Putin (Russia President).  He is estimated to be worth USD$200B.

Iceberg's full report on Noble Group!

We are also worried about the sustainability of Noble because of its negative cash flow after selling its golden goose assets.  Like we said before, Noble's white knight can pull out after getting privy information and fully understand the situation better than ordinary retail investors.

Our local residents committed abduction!

Singapore PRs are considered locals by our government.

Indeed, Singaporeans commit more crimes than foreigners as stated by our PM.

China has the best AI now!

China AI tops Stanford's reading comprehension ranking.

It's an amazing accomplishment because it shows rapid evolution in China's technology.

Real ghosts caught on CCTV!


Ghost moved ladder in Singapore Changi Terminal 4!

It seems that our readers love to watch ghost video and we've decided to put up another one.

Something weird was happening in Singapore Changi Terminal 4 during construction.

President Duterte has killed another mayor and his wife for drug dealings.

Wow! This president hates drugs to the core.  He won't tolerate drug in his parliament.  The Ozamis mayor and his family were reported to be involved in drug dealings.  The mayor and wife were killed because they resisted police arrest with guns and grenades.

This is the 3rd mayor who was killed in Duterte's drug campaign.

China has presented the factsheet about China-India border. India is speechless now.

India will be speechless now about its incursion into China's territory.  I think China wants to set the record straight before embarking on military action as snow will fall in September.  China has not much time left to chase Indian troops out of China's territory.  August will be the only month suitable for such a military action.

Yale economic professor and nobel laureate Robert Shiller gave a warning about stock market.

The stock market is in a dicey conundrum whereby the PE ratio is high and the volatility is low.  His CAPE (Shiller PE Ratio) predicts that the stock market will crash big time whenever it is high.  The CAPE is above 30 now and the big crashes are all above 30.
