FY2015 =   4.749 + 14.4 – 21.3 = - 2.2 million (Deficit)
 
Comments:
1)  ROE, NPAT and EPS have been declining over the past two financial years from its peak in FY2013.
2)  ROE and EPS are at all time low under STAM’s management.
3)  DPS has been maintained at 1.5 cent over the past 5 years.
4)  If all dividends were to be paid in cash, from cash flow perspective, OCF plus gain on sales of investments is not enough to cover DPS of 1.5 cent.
5)  Accounting profit in FY2015 is not enough to cover DPS of 1.5 cent either.
6)  Management has been relying on gain on sales of investments (mainly in listed equities) to make up for declining recurring income (interest income and dividend income) in the past few years. But interestingly, as at end of FY2015, listed equities only made up 17% of the total portfolio as compared to 32% (at the end of FY2014) whereas bonds has increased from 25% (at end of FY2014) to 46% as % of total portfolio (at end of FY2015). 
7)  Cash Dividend yield of DPS=1.5 cent seems very attractive.
8)  Scrip dividend yield “looks” even more attractive ~ but is it really? Return of re-investment as measured by ROE has been dropping for the past 2 years.
9)  NAV per share dropped in FY2015 despite of re-investment of dividend via Scrip Dividend Scheme.
10)              Question remains: how long could this DPS = 1.5 cents be maintained, with increasing number of new shares being issued each year?
11)              To cover Cash Dividend Distribution of about 22.5 m (assumed) in FY2016, ROE required (net of management fees and expenses) ~ 7.7% (= 22.5 / 292.2)
12)              So, was ROE of 5.9 % in FY2015 just a blip ? Only time will tell !

RE: Global Investments
Global Investments Ltd (GIL) - AGM on 29.04.16

Some Answers to the Many Questions:

Q) Why does GIL invest less in Listed Equities (17%) & more in High Yield Bonds (46%)
A) Bonds give more stable income, this will help GIL to pay regular dividends.

Q) When interest rate goes up, will it affect GIL's Bonds?
A) Not so because of 2 reasons:

i) GIL likely to hold the Bonds to maturity
ii) Most of GIL's Bonds are on Floating rates so when interest rate goes up, the Issuers have to pay higher coupons to GIL.

When interest rate goes up, bond price comes down, this will give good opportunities for GIL to invest more in Bonds with higher yield.

After the AGM, I asked Ms. Tan Mui Hong on why she is not on the Top 20 Shareholder List. She showed me in page 109:
The Top 3th & 4th position goes to Goh Si Hui (44,808,166 Shares) & Goh Si Kai (44,807,045 Shares). Both of them are her children.

RE: Global Investments
It's about time. Indeed most investors wouldn't be able to understand the "economic profit"

GLOBAL INVESTMENTS LIMITED – CHANGE IN DIVIDEND POLICY

The Board of Directors of Global Investments Limited (the “Company”) refers to its review of the longterm sustainability of the dividend payout of the Company as stated in the announcement made together with the release of interim dividend guidance on 11 May 2017.

The Company has been paying out the majority of the economic income received from its investments after payment or provision for operating and financing expenses as dividends. The economic income is not reported in the financial statements and hence investors have been unable to relate it to the dividends paid.

To better align the dividend payments with profit and ensure that the Company is able to pay dividend on a sustainable basis, the Company will endeavour to pay out most of the profit after tax after taking into consideration the Company’s requirements for future growth. The Company will declare dividend out of retained profit under certain circumstances.

RE: Global Investments
Hi
Please refer to my analysis below for Global Inv

https://writingofinvestingnoob.com/2018/12/11/global-investment-woes/ 

Summary:
We suggest to dividend lovers to take a look based on current price due to: -
  • Net cash position hence minimal interest risk

  • Heavy discount to NAV

  • Well diversified portfolio

  • Reasonable yield

  • Experienced Management Team which is reputable in portfolio management, and vested in the Company

  • Better alternative to unit trusts.
However, we do not suggest to invest significantly in this counter due to: -
  • Large portion of fixed income investments in Coco bonds or below investment grade bonds which provide a lot downside risk;

  • This is not a business with strong moat so less growth potential;

  • Heavy load fees structure;

  • Aggressive accounting valuation and disclosures that may discount its assets.
