RE: Singapore Exchange (SGX)
The share buy- back has been relentless under relentless selling mode .
As the earning will be hit ,can the dividend payout ratio be maintained ?

hi cfa,
SGX's shares from its sharebuyback are normally awarded to directors, mgt and employees as part of the incentive program. So in a sense, this action of sharebuyback is generally neutral from OPMI's perspective.

As for dividend payout ratio, the dividend policy has been changed to absolute 30cents per share/year (or 7.5cents per share/quarter) from FY19 onwards. So, the payout ratio is not a factor in the dividend consideration. Nonetheless, for context, paying 30cents in the last 2 FY translates to an average payout ratio of ~86%. Assume a 15% drop in net income, this pay out ratio increases to 86%/0.85 ~ 101%. It does look manageable and probably prophetic since previously, shareholders have always been asking the BOD to increase pay out ratio, but they resisted to do so.

1Q 2020 - Net profit of $114m, Div $80.4m (70.5%)

2Q 2020 - Net profit of $99m, Div $80.4m (81.2%)

3Q 2020 - Net Profit of $137m, Div $80.4m (58.6%)


Based on last 3 quarters, a 15% cut of profit still look manageable to maintain Div payout. But moving forward, is the mitigation or growth plan thats keeping investors in suspense.

Nonetheless, the 10-15% overall profit drop (security, derivative and data etc) when it is 10-15% volume lost from only derivative portion, does suggest these MSCI contracts have much higher margin compared to the other derivative products.

2 years ago, there was an issue between NSE and SGX on the Niffy contract and it was resolved pretty competently by the Mgt. Would be interesting to observe the potential mitigation measures rolled out and how SGX handles this, FTSE Taiwan?

It makes sense for SGX to implement the FTSE Taiwan index as the first mitigation action. This is quite consistent with their prior actions in the last crisis with NSE on the Niffy contracts.

The FTSE index and MSCI index are actually quite similar in a sense that the top 10 components are the same companies (you cannot get too far off based on market cap) but weightages especially the top stock TSMC is actually very different with FTSE putting in a limit for individual stock. I reckon the difference in TSMC's weightage (MSCI:37.6% FTSE: 18.94%) would actually be the most significant difference between both contracts? I am assuming that other factors like contract sizes and expiry dates etc can be mostly equalized with SGX as the same offerer/clearing house.

I thought this change would be a very good case study and test on the supposed "network effects" that stock exchanges are expected to enjoy.

Thumbs Up  RE: Singapore Exchange (SGX)
You read them well! It appeared to me that they dropped MSCI instead. And the 100% acquisition of BidfX looks interesting with huge growth potential.
