Go Wild! What can SHC do for you? Or what can you do for SHC?

SilverHairsClub started in 2005. When you first join SHC, the Club had only one objective, and that is to provide a platform for you to find and meet friends. Today, the objective remains unchanged.

Many members have found new friends and form small groups. Many go travel together, have tea and meals regularly, and go social dancing together. Some go for exercises and walks together. If not for these outings, many are happy to chit chat.

But more than 95% of SilverHairsClub members are inactive. You may be one of them. The Club likes to bring you out, and come together as seniors, over 45. While we are aware you may be busy working or looking after tiny-tots. You may also not like too much socialising or you may find the activities not suitable to your like. Or is your non-participation because we have more lady participation than men.

Well, take a step and Go Wild. You maybe exploring retirement possibilities, a part time job or some things to keep you busy. Perhaps, exploring online ecommerce where u can be anywhere and still enjoy some income to keep up with today’s modern kids.

Or fishing, golfing, camping, a wild BBQ, listening to music or reading a book.

You definitely have some ideas, that’s why you join SilverHairsClub, a club for over 45s. But if your goal is to relax and do nothing, do share with us too.

Tell us what we can do for you as a Club. You can also share what you can do for the Club. You can share on the forum or you can whatsapp me at +65 9489-4360. And the wilder, the better.

Write to us today. We look forward to hear from you.

Another Equities Sharing gathering in May 2017

Following the last Equities Sharing gathering on 1 Apr 2017, there have been more requests for similar gatherings. The interests range from very basic like “Starting a share trading account”, to “how other members are performing” to the usual “Tips”.

Yes, we can do another gathering. From the last event, I note that members wish to know who are the speakers. We do have issues with getting a venue, as participants have indicated not wanting to pay for the facility, and prefer to just buying their F&B from the counter. And, I see requests to have free F&B to listen to speakers. Sometimes, I am not sure how to have someone organise these activities, provide a free venue, provide audio and projection facilities, provide snacks and drinks and get value for money. We have always difficulties convincing F&B venue owners to let us use their place, for a token purchased drinks. Ok, so much for all the stumbling blocks.

Any suggestions? If you can provide any of the above facilities, please let me know. Let’s look at May.

Scuba diving as a hobby and sport

This is one particular activity which we rarely hear of in the Club. It is always associated with clear waters, beautiful Nemos and colourful corals, going out to remote islands and a day well-spent.

We have a few members who love scuba diving, and they go out regularly to their regular spots. And, of course, we have members who want to know more about this activity.

If you are a scuba diver or you love to find out more about the sport, please indicate your name here. We will organise a session for you to find Nemo together.

Cheap stocks – Do your own due diligence (DYODD)

31 March 2017 [Motley] These Are Some of The Cheapest Stocks in Singapore Currently

I have a habit of looking at how cheap or expensive the stock market is at the start of every month. One way I do so is to determine the number of net-net stocks there are in Singapore’s market.

A net-net stock is a stock with a market capitalisation that is lower than its net current asset value. The net current asset value is a simple financial number that can be calculated with the following formula:
Net current asset value = Total current assets minus total liabilities

Theoretically, a net-net stock is a fantastic bargain. That’s because investors can get a discount on the company’s current assets (assets such as cash and inventory) net of all its liabilities. Moreover, the company’s fixed assets (assets such as properties, factories, and equipment etc.) are thrown into the fray for free.

The logic follows that if a large number of net-net stocks can be found in Singapore’s market, then stocks would likely be really cheap at that point in time.

Now, I had stressed the word “theoretically” earlier because net-net stocks are often companies that are in serious trouble and/or have horrible business economics. This means that investors in them are also at risk of seeing their capital evaporate if things continue heading south.

That’s one reason why diversification is important. The legendary Benjamin Graham, who liked to invest in net-net stocks when he was investing professionally, tried to mitigate risks by diversifying widely amongst net-net stocks.

I thought it would be interesting and useful to share a list of some of the net-net stocks that popped up when I did my latest exercise of assessing the state of the market.

I decided to come up with three lists: 1) the 10 net-net stocks that have the lowest market-cap-to-net-current-asset-value ratio; 2) the 10 net-net stocks with the largest market caps, and 3) the 10 largest net-net stocks that have positive net income over the last 12 months as well as more cash than debt on their balance sheets.

Here are the 10 stocks in the first list: Universal Resource and Services Ltd (SGX: BGO), China Haida Ltd (SGX: C92), China Taisan Tech Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: AZW), Ace Achieve Infocom Limited (SGX: A75), Full Apex (Holdings) Ltd (SGX: BTY), Matex International Ltd (SGX: M15), China Sports International Limited (SGX: FQ8), C&G Environmental Protection Holdings Ltd (SGX: D79), Nam Cheong Ltd (SGX: N4E), and Cacola Furniture International Limited (SGX: D2U).

Source: S&P Global Market Intelligence

Here are the 10 stocks in the second list: Noble Group Limited (SGX: N21), UOB-Kay Hian Holdings Limited (SGX: U10), Hong Leong Asia Ltd (SGX: H22), Kingboard Copper Foil Holdings Limited (SGX: K14), Hanwell Holdings Ltd (SGX: DM0), Baker Technology Ltd (SGX: BTP), Sing Holdings Limited (SGX: 5IC), Cortina Holdings Limited (SGX: C41), Hengxin Technology Ltd (SGX: I85), and Tiong Seng Holdings Limited (SGX: BFI)

Source: S&P Global Market Intelligence

And finally, here are the stocks in the third list: Noble, Kingboard Copper Foil, Hanwell, Hengxin, Nobel Deisgn (SGX: 547), Memtech International (SGX: BOL), Nam Lee (SGX: G0I), Asia Enterprise (SGX: A55), CDW Holding (SGX: BXE), and mDR Limited (SGX: A27).

Source: S&P Global Market Intelligence

I have to be clear that I’m not recommending that investors buy or sell any of the stocks seen here. My purpose here is simply to share the identities of some of Singapore’s cheapest stocks right now. Make of them what you will.

Tea Dance on Saturday, 8 April 2017, 2pm to 6pm at Club 5, Park Royal on Kitchener Road – Update

Dear All.

Thank you to all who are coming to the event for your kind support.
My Committee members have got the lucky draw prizes, game and prizes all ready.

For those who are driving, I have attached the location map and car park facilities within walking distance to the club.

Map of Parkroyal on Kitchener Road – car parks
So if you get to the carpark at 1.30pm, the rates will be as follows:

Park Royal Hotel
1.30pm to 3.30pm (2 hours)- free with complimentary coupon
3.31pm to 5pm (one and a half hours) – $4.50
After 5.01pm – 6.59am (per entry) – $4.90
Total payable = $9.40

City Mall Square
1.30pm to 6pm (4 and a half hours) – $7.20
6.01 to 3.59am (per entry) – $3.50
Total payable = $10.70

However, there is one open space car park just on the left of the hotel (direction if you are facing hotel from the road) and there are many roadside parking lots on Sam Leong Road and several other roads near the hotel which is outside CBD so its $1.20 per hour.

If you go by MRT, its the purple line and alight at Farrer Park Station.

Doors to the Club open at 2pm sharp. Its free seating. However, there are two big groups who registered together so I hope you don’t mind, I have asked the club to reserve the two long sofas for the two groups of 10 pax each.

Lucky draw coupons will be given upon registration so remember to go and chope your place after registration then fill up your card and drop it into the lucky draw bowl.

See you all next month….

 

The equities markets have come alive. Come and share what and how other members are reacting to global market changes?”

We are organising a gathering on Sat 1st April 2017 (April Fool’s day) from 2pm to 5.30pm at GreenDots cafe, right at STAR Vista, Bourna Vista MRT.

The equities markets have indeed come alive, from America, to Europe and Asia. It may be a reaction from the Trump effect, a possible trade war between the US and China, a lower un-employment in the States, and confidence that the world will swing either left or right. Now that TPP is off, interest rates are expected to climb and American companies will be going home.

Online Equities trading is a popular activity among seniors. With changes going around the world fast, we can hear what others are doing.

Please jot this date in your diary.

Price $20 per person.
Early bird (before 20 Mar 2017) $15.
A dish and dessert is included.
Strictly SilverHairsClub members only.

Plse make payment to Chris Chan POSB Savings Acct 542-10756-1.
Payment update will be handled by Christina Chan.

Music makes the world round. Where were you then?

A song brings back great memories.  When we hear a song, it reminds us of where we were, what age we were snd when we heard the song.  Songs bring happiness, sadness, love, romance and memories.

Songs bring back our childhood days, as fresh as yesterday. We remember our school fun fairs, the days when we gather with fellow friends at campsites and around the campfire.  Songs makes us feel romantic when we met our first love.  Sometimes songs remind us of how crazy we have been and how far we go to get what we want. We laughed privately at ourselves.

Here’s an old song?  Share with us how you feel?

“If you love me, let me know”,  a Olivia Newton John hit, 1974.

The festive seasons have ended… good time to stretch and walk off the flabs 😀

Due to the recent incident of big trees being uprooted, our walk routes are limited.
In view of the safety for all participants during this rainy season, we have changed this walking route to a pleasant yet interesting trail!

For greenery, we will pass through 2 small parks; will see the only Buddhist temple outside Myanmar built in the traditional Burmese architectural style; a chic cafe; a villa built in late 1800s was restored and open to the public in 2001; Singapore’s first civil airport terminal built in 1937 but ceased operation in 1955 and used by various groups; other interesting landmarks like the longest HDB block.

There’s two end points, it depends on time, weather and participants’ energy level:
1) Kallang MRT or
2) Sports Hub

Bring water bottles, caps, umbrellas and cameras. Do wear comfortable walking shoes.

Look forward to your early registration! 😀 😀

30% increase in Singapore water rates

Last night, I was sitting at Perth airport, waiting for the flight to Singapore. A young man, who has been away for about 30 years, asked if I was a Singaporean. I replied “Sure, Yes”, and of course, I asked him “Why”.

He asked me if I kept track of news in Singapore, and if knew Singapore has announced a 30% increase in water rates. I didn’t believe him, but later, I sat down to read the E-News on my wonderful Blackberry. Wah, I was shocked to read countless comments on a 30% water rate increase.

My first thought was “what business in the world can increase its price by 30%? Water? Cannot be. Water is Life. Water is not alcohol and not cigarettes.  It is not sugar. How can a household paying $50 a month now pays $15 more?

What has gone wrong in Singapore? We already have GST which is pro-rated to consumption. This controls consumption.  

This 30% issue is a current issue. It affects every household and business. I hope we can send a message to the government and the PUB, through our many grassroots members, that this is a serious matter. Feel free to offer your views and comments. Alternate suggestions also welcome.

No name calling plse, and keep this issue a non-political discussion.
