Daily Morning Note – 26 January 2021


Technology shares led gains in U.S. stocks as investors awaited earnings from some of the biggest companies.

The Nasdaq 100 climbed amid gains for Apple Inc., Tesla Inc. and Microsoft Corp. The S&P 500 Index ended higher, though gains were limited after the top Senate Democrat said lawmakers said an aid package was unlikely before mid-March and a U.S. health official expressed concern about vaccination delays. GameStop Corp. extended its extreme volatility, more than doubling before paring most of the gains.


Keppel real estate investment trust (Reit) reported a distribution per unit (DPU) of 2.93 Singapore cents for the second half of the fiscal year ended December, up 4.6 per cent from its DPU of 2.80 cents in the year-ago period. This brought the Reit’s full-year DPU for the whole of FY 2020 to 5.73 Singapore cents, a 2.7 per cent increase from 5.58 Singapore cents in FY 2019.

Mapletree Logistics Trust’s (MLT) distribution per unit rose 1 per cent to 2.065 Singapore cents for its third quarter ended Dec 31, 2020, on an enlarged unit base following its equity fundraising completed in Q3. This is up from 2.044 Singapore cents a year ago. This sum comprises of advanced distribution of 0.623 Singapore cents for the period Oct 1-28, 2020 that was paid on Dec 4, 2020, and 1.442 Singapore cents for the balance distribution for the period Oct 29 to Dec 31, 2020, payable on March 15, 2021.

Gallant Venture is proposing to acquire 66.25 per cent of shares in Singapore-Bintan Resort Holdings (SBRH) for a total consideration of S$4.94 million from shareholders that include Keppel Land, OCBC, UOB, DBS, UOL Equity Investments and Tropical Resorts. The remaining 33.75 per cent shares in SBRH are held by Salim Group-linked entities which are not involved in the proposed acquisition.

CNMC Goldmine Holdings said it will continue to halt all production activities and operations in Kelantan, Malaysia until Feb 4 in light of the second round of movement control order (MCO) restrictions – referred to as MCO 2.0 – imposed by the government in order to curb the rampant spread of the coronavirus. This means the company’s ore material transfer, quarrying and mineral mining activities will remain shut till the end of the MCO 2.0 period, or until the company receives approval to operate from Malaysia’s National Security Council (NSC).

Parkway Life real estate investment trust (Parkway Life Reit) posted a distribution per unit (DPU) of 3.57 Singapore cents for the fourth fiscal quarter of the year ended December, up 6.7 per cent from 3.34 Singapore cents in the corresponding period last year. This pushed the Reit’s DPU for the FY 2020 to 13.79 Singapore cents, some 4.5 per cent higher than 13.19 Singapore cents in FY 2019.

This material is provided by Phillip Capital Management (S) Ltd (“PCM”) for general information only and does not constitute a recommendation, an offer to sell, or a solicitation of any offer to invest in any of the exchange-traded fund (“ETF”) or the unit trust (“Products”) mentioned herein. It does not have any regard to your specific investment objectives, financial situation and any of your particular needs. You should read the Prospectus and the accompanying Product Highlights Sheet (“PHS”) for key features, key risks and other important information of the Products and obtain advice from a financial adviser (“FA“) pursuant to a separate engagement before making a commitment to invest in the Products.

A copy of the Prospectus and PHS are available from PCM, any of its Participating Dealers (“PDs“) for the ETF, or any of its authorised distributors for the unit trust managed by PCM.  

An ETF is not like a typical unit trust as the units of the ETF (the “Units“) are to be listed and traded like any share on the Singapore Exchange Securities Trading Limited (“SGX-ST”). Listing on the SGX-ST does not guarantee a liquid market for the Units which may be traded at prices above or below its NAV or may be suspended or delisted. Investors may buy or sell the Units on SGX-ST when it is listed. Investors cannot create or redeem Units directly with PCM and have no rights to request PCM to redeem or purchase their Units. Creation and redemption of Units are through PDs if investors are clients of the PDs, who have no obligation to agree to create or redeem Units on behalf of any investor and may impose terms and conditions in connection with such creation or redemption orders. Please refer to the Prospectus of the ETF for more details.  

Investments are subject to investment risks including the possible loss of the principal amount invested. The purchase of a unit in a fund is not the same as placing your money on deposit with a bank or deposit-taking company. There is no guarantee as to the amount of capital invested or return received. The value of the units and the income accruing to the units may fall or rise. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of the future or likely performance of the Products. There can be no assurance that investment objectives will be achieved.  

Where applicable, fund(s) may invest in financial derivatives and/or participate in securities lending and repurchase transactions for the purpose of hedging and/or efficient portfolio management, subject to the relevant regulatory requirements. PCM reserves the discretion to determine if currency exposure should be hedged actively, passively or not at all, in the best interest of the Products.  

The regular dividend distributions, out of either income and/or capital, are not guaranteed and subject to PCM’s discretion. Past payout yields and payments do not represent future payout yields and payments. Such dividend distributions will reduce the available capital for reinvestment and may result in an immediate decrease in the net asset value (“NAV”) of the Products. Please refer to <www.phillipfunds.com> for more information in relation to the dividend distributions.
