AsianPayTV … I fainted!

When I saw the sharp drop in Asian Pay TV Trust (APTT) share price last night, I fainted. Boy, it was a whopping 50% drop in its share price overnight. Checking it out, this drop was purely in response to their latest dividend guidance of 1.2 cents annually for 2019 and 2020. This "1.2 cents" … Continue reading AsianPayTV … I fainted!

A painful week thankfully softened by the reliable dividends from the S-Reits’ Old Guards

It is another painful week for equity investors all around the world. For local investors, we witnessed the STI going below the 3000 points psychological support to close the week at 2972 points, 3% down from the previous week.
