  • Gamestop Corp (GME US) shares rose 14.5% yesterday after Chairman Ryan Cohen bought another 100,000 shares of the video game retailer, bringing his ownership to 11.9% as the activist investor tries to push the company into e-commerce.
  • CF Industries Holdings Inc (CF US) and Mosaic Co (MOS US) shares gained 3.7% and 3.6% yesterday. Shares of fertiliser companies continue to enjoy popularity among investors who see huge gains ahead for the company following any shortages from the Russia-Ukraine conflict. Combined, Russia and Belarus accounted for more than 40 per cent of global exports of potash last year, one of three critical nutrients used to boost crop yields, Dutch lender Rabobank said this month.
  • Adobe Inc (ADBE US) shares lost 9.3% yesterday. Adobe beat earnings, but reported a weak outlook. In the first quarter, Adobe beat estimates by 3 cents, reporting adjusted quarterly earnings of $3.37 per share. However, the company expects a $75 million hit to its business from the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
  • Boeing Company (BA US) shares lost 2.6% yesterday, mostly erasing Tuesday’s rebound, as investors continued to monitor the investigation of a plane crash in China. One of the two black boxes from the flight, which could reveal the reason for the crash, has been found, according to Chinese state media.


  • Frencken Group Ltd (FRKN SP), AEM Holdings Ltd (AEM SP) and UMS Holdings Ltd (UMSH SP) shares rose 3.1%, 2.9% and 2.5% respectively yesterday. Recently, RHB upgraded Singapore technology stocks to “overweight” as the recent correction across the global tech sector has resulted in these stocks having undemanding valuations. With the outlook of certain companies still robust, RHB analyst Jarick Seet said in a report on Thursday (Mar 17) that the risk-reward profile at these valuation levels has made the counters an attractive option. Seet highlighted China’s Vice-Premier Liu He’s comments on Wednesday that the central government will ensure any capital market regulations will be coordinated with financial management departments in advance. “We believe this should have a positive impact on the sentiment on global tech stocks – and should also spell a positive outlook for Singapore’s tech counters as well,” he said. Semiconductor equipment firms continue to invest in capital expenditure, with equipment billings surging 38% to US$26.8 billion in the third quarter of 2021, compared to the same period a year ago. Seet also said that shares of electronic manufacturing services players, which have been relatively muted, could change in the second half of 2022 when global component shortage is alleviated.
  • Yanlord Land Group Ltd (YLLG SP) shares rose 2.5% yesterday. DBS Group Research recently upgraded its call on Yanlord Land Group from “hold” to “buy” earlier this month, following the property developer’s earnings performance for the financial year ended Dec 31, 2021. DBS credited the increase in valuation to the property developer’s gross margins and pre-sales outlook; it observed that gross margins show signs of bottoming in FY2021, and that the pre-sales outlook is likely to stage a solid pickup relative to peers in FY2022.
  • Lendlease Global Commercial REIT (LREIT SP) units lost 3.1% yesterday. The manager had announced a private placement and preferential offering on Tuesday – proceeds of which would help finance the real estate investment trust’s S$2.1 billion acquisition of the remaining stake in Jem mall that it does not already own. The private placement was priced at S$0.725, the lower end of its S$0.725 and S$0.74 issue price range, representing a 9% discount to the Reit’s volume-weighted average price of S$0.7964 per unit on Mar 21 – before the equity fundraising was announced.

According to the report, the company’s sales increased 83.3% YoY, and net profit increased 100%.
