Daily Morning Note – 9 November 2021


Asian stocks looked set to rise Tuesday after U.S. equities extended a winning streak on optimism that the economic recovery can weather inflation risks. The dollar and Treasuries declined. Futures for Japan and Hong Kong climbed. Australia inched higher at the open. U.S. futures were steady in early Asian trading. The S&P 500 edged higher for an eighth session, the longest winning streak since 2017. A drop in Tesla Inc. weighed on the Nasdaq 100 after Elon Musk’s Twitter followers in a poll he set up voted in favour of the billionaire selling 10% of his stake in the firm. Treasury yields advanced amid a weak three-year auction. Meanwhile, the yield on 30-year Treasury inflation-protected securities slid to a record low, a sign of ongoing concerns about price pressures shadowing the global economy.



Mainboard-listed SIIC Environment Holdings said that its revenue increased by 10.7 per cent to RMB181.1 million (S$38.2 million) for the quarter ended Sep 30, 2021, up from RMB163.5 million from a year earlier. Revenue for Q3 also increased by 17.6 per cent to RMB1.77 billion, up from RMB1.51 billion a year ago. Earnings per share stood at RMB7.03 cents for the quarter, up from RMB6.28 cents from the previous year.

Mainboard-listed infrastructure and civil engineering company OKP Holdings on Monday (Nov 8) announced that it has secured a contract worth S$39.9 million from the Public Utilities Board (PUB). The contract is for drainage improvement works at the Benoi Road outlet drain. OKP’s subsidiary, Eng Lam Contractors Co, will be involved in the construction of reinforced U-drains and an outfall structure with riprap scour protection connecting to Benoi Basin.

Unusual Limited, the events-production unit of mm2 Asia, narrowed its net loss by 54.1 per cent to S$1.6 million in the half-year ended Sep 30, 2021, from S$3.4 million a year ago. Loss per share stood at 0.15 Singapore cents , down from 0.33 Singapore cents from the previous year. Revenue for the half year declined by 60.8 per cent to S$426,346, down from S$1.1 million the year before.

Ban Leong Technologies posted a 64.9 per cent rise in net profit to S$3.9 million for the half year ended Sep 30, 2021, from S$2.3 million a year ago. This was mainly due to a 29.8 per cent increase in revenue to S$51.5 million from its information technology (IT) accessories segment, while the multimedia segment and storage segments grew 19.2 per cent and 177.6 per cent to S$56.0 million and S$1.3 million respectively. The tech distributor’s gross profit increased by 40.9 per cent to S$11.1 million and attributed this to consumers’ willingness to pay more for better quality products to be more productive or have a better experience both at work and at home.


An investor group led by buyout firms Advent International Corp, Permira Advisers and others have agreed to take McAfee Corp private in a deal that values the cybersecurity software maker at more than US$14 billion including debt. The private equity consortium will pay US$26 a share in cash, said a statement on Monday. Crosspoint Capital Partners, Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, GIC and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority are also part of the group of buyers.

Tesla Inc shares fell 5.4 per cent in pre-market trading on Monday as investors prepared for its chief Elon Musk’s proposed sale of about a 10th of his holdings in the electric-car maker following his Twitter poll. Musk, the world’s richest person, tweeted on Saturday that he would offload 10 per cent of his stock if users of the social media network approved the proposal.

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.
