Eu yan sang just announced its result. Despite still having a weak balance sheet with November 2016 notes to be redeemed, it has instead chosen to declare a rare interim dividend of 2.5 cents. I used to own Eu yan sang shares, dividend is always declared after 4th quarter results but this year it is declared after 3rd quarter results. Anyway, it has announced a halt to trading of its shares after SGX query on the sudden rise in share price. Businesstimes has postulated that EU yan sang is preparing for a privatisation move.
If so, then it makes sense why a rare dividend is declared now, so that the majority shareholders can have more money to privatise the company.
Disclosure:I am vested in Neratel, so opinion will be biased.
I attended Neratel AGM yesterday, management seems quite confident of expanding the payment solution business(in fact, new subsidiaries were set up last year to expand this business segment), so i was surprised that today neratel announced that a third party has approached it to buy the payment solution business, though no agreement has been reached yet.
If payment solution business is sold, Neratel will lose recurring revenue from lease of POS system. Although the sale of this business will reduce capex, but Neratel turnover will become more unpredictable. Of course, every business is for sale at a good price. Let’s wait for further developments.
Another major disruption for SMRT. Minister Khaw who recently celebrated 100 days of no major incident for rail travel surely is not pleased now.
Let’s see his incomplete bazi
壬辰 壬子 戊子
大运：癸丑 甲寅 乙卯 丙辰 丁巳 戊午 己未 庚申

Looks like his 忌神 is water. This year forms a 三合水局.
辛丑 戊戌 戊戌

Seems like PAP is sending K. Muralidharan Pillai as their candidate in Bukit Batok SMC by election. From the web, his birthday is 30th Oct 1967. Incomplete bazi is
丁未 庚戌 丁卯
大运：己酉 戊申 丁未 丙午 乙巳 甲辰 癸卯 壬寅
8岁 18岁 28岁 38岁 48岁 58岁 68岁 78岁
始于：1974 1984 1994 2004 2014 2024 2034 2044
Looks like his favourable elements are wood and fire. Obviously, he is in good luck period, but so is Chee Soon Juan. It boils down to the exact date and time of election which we don’t know yet, so it is difficult to tell who will win. As a rough estimate, if it is held in the month of 壬辰，Chee has a slight edge over Pillai. If it is held in month of 甲午, Pillai will have the edge over Chee.
Well, it’s too early to say since candidates standing for by-election in bukit batok are not announced yet. However, judging by Chee Soon Juan’s visit to Bukit Batok SMC this morning, it seems likely that he (or Prof. Tambyah) will run for SDP. Since i don’t have Prof. Tambyah’s birthday. I will just analyse Chee’s incomplete bazi.
壬寅 丁未 己未
大运：戊申 己酉 庚戌 辛亥 壬子 癸丑 甲寅 乙卯
7岁 17岁 27岁 37岁 47岁 57岁 67岁 77岁
始于：1968 1978 1988 1998 2008 2018 2028 2038
looks like a dry chart requiring water as 调侯。In 2012 壬辰, when water is available plus luck period 壬子， he was discharged from bankruptcy and allowed to compete in elections thereafter.But why, in luck period 辛亥 when there is also water, he did not do well and even went to jail? Don’t forget 寅亥合 and i presume wood(官杀） is not his favourable element. This year is 丙申, if by-election is called in month of 壬辰 forming a 三合水局, then luck is with him and he may do well against his opponent. As for whether he can enter parliament as MP, really hard to tell but there’s a chance as PAP don’t fare well in smc by election in recent years.
