Strange that the ssb rates is dropping compared to Jan 16. Shouldn't interest rates rise like all the sibor linked loans and fixed deposit? After all the fed has increased their rates.

Hey Kyith!

This comment has not so much to do with SSB but rather SBS. I noticed you've been accumulating the stock slowly since last year...mind sharing what you see here?

Thanks and hope you've enjoyed your great start to the new year!

Hi Liz, not the first person to ask me that. The singapore bus scene will be transiting from a private ownership model to a government contracting model or GCM. There is a likely hood that the assets will be purchased back, whether on book value or below book value. If they are not going to purchase back, the government may lease it from them.

What is clear is that the major capex situation in the past will change, and if you look at the results since 2000, it is clear why SBS have not been doing well.

When capex is removed, how much dividends can they realistically pay? Ah that is the interesting part of the research.

So basically that is the idea.
