BOOK - Annual Reports Of Various Listed Companies In Singapore
Keen to embark on your investment journey ? One of the best ways to understand the company you are interested to invest in is by reading theirs or their competitors' annual reports, best across 5 years or more. If not, on what basis you are investing or what the company is all about ? (FYI - Warren Buffett with his partner & their 2 generals spent most of their waking hours - as long as 12 hours per day - reading reports of various kinds - including annual reports - and analysing data. How could we "work" less than them in order to achieve the same kind of result ?) Although annual reports are deemed as backward looking but this statement is not entirely correct. Yes, no doubt financial statements may be backward looking but annual reports include many other materials, such as Chairman's & CEO's forward-looking messages will give you an idea how the sector & company, outlook will be like going forward etc. Reading across many years, you will get an idea how the sector or industry has changed/performed etc. Reading annual reports across the years can also guide you to the changes of vision, mission and how well the management has been running the company across the years, have they executed their plans as stated in the previous years annual reports etc. You will learn to form your opinions by reading across these annual reports. Personally, I preferred hardcopy since I can hold them in my hand, flip across the pages to find and confirm reference points as compared to electronic copy. You can write your own notes beside the points quickly as thoughts pass through your mind. I find it is easier this way by owning these hardcopy reports. However, my collection has grown over the years and now I need to sell to free up space. Most of the annual reports I owned are STI index stocks and some midcaps. You can check with me if you are looking for a particular company. Selling price per annual report will be $8.80 and I am sure you can derive value of more than this if you use it correctly. No nego. Most are one copy only - first pay first get. If you get more than 10 copies, then 10% discount. Most annual reports are clean, but you may get some with dog ears, folded cover/page corners, some with handwritten notes etc. Hence, these are not the fussy buyer, but for buyers with real interest to get a better insight of the company you are interested in and help you to make better investment decisions. I also have some electronic copies if you are interested, this will save you money as you do not need to be on your data plan all the time in order to access the annual reports. If you need annual reports across many years, you will need to give me time to find and collate them all. Please do not collect on the same day. However, I do need at least 50% deposit to show your commitment in your request. If I couldn't find a particular copy you are looking for, I will refund you. If you changed your mind after I collated all the reports you need, your deposit will be forfeited since I have taken time to load and unload all the books inside my store room just to find what you need. That is to say - deal only when you are serious. These are the names I can think of and I should have the last 5 years and probably more. ✔ Capitaland ✔ Capitaland Commercial Trust (previously Capcomm Trust) ✔ Capitaland Mall Trust (previously Capmall Trust) ✔ Capitamall Asia (CMA) - delisted but a good case study. ✔ City Development (CDL) ✔ DBS ✔ Fortune Real Estate Investment Trust (Fortune REIT) ✔ Frasers & Neave (F&N) ✔ Hong Leong Asia ✔ Hyflux ✔ Keppel Corporation (KepCorp) ✔ Keppel Infrastructure Trust (KIT) ✔ Keppel Telecommunications & Transport Ltd (Keppel T&T) ✔ Keppel Real Estate Investment Trust (K-REIT) ✔ Noble ✔ Olam ✔ OUE ✔ OUE Hospitality Trust (OUE H-Trust) ✔ Perennial Real Estate Holdings Limited (Perennial REIT) ✔ Raffles Medical Group ✔ Sembcorp Industries ✔ Singapore Exchange (SGX) ✔ Singtel ✔ StarHub ✔ Suntec Real Estate Investment Trust (Suntec REIT) ✔ Super (delisted but if you are interested to understand their books and why they were takeover - these can be a perfect case study) ✔ UOB ✔ Wilmar ✔ Venture Corporation Limited ✔ Vicom ✔ Yangzijiang Shipping Pte Ltd I may have some annual reports of companies that I cannot remember offhand, you are welcome to check with me. In addition, I have management, investment, marketing, sociology, accounting, IT books that I am letting go too. Too many to list for now - most in very good condition, you can check with me too ! Just FYI - These annual reports can be helpful for your interview too ! Imagine you can articulate anything about the company as well as their competitors or even have that 5000 feet helicopter views of the industry ! You will definitely impressed your potential employer ! 😆😆😆😆😆 I prefer you to self collect these annual reports since they can be quite heavy (all above 0.5kg per annual reports) aka postage & handlings can be relative substantial as compared to the price of the annual reports. If you are buying a few, can consider using Smartpac box, but it is limited by its size and weight of max 3kg. If you want delivery to your doorstep, you can arrange your own courier or I can make arrangement for you - minimum charges by my courier is $15 per trip. Pls clarify if any questions ! Thanks for viewing !
