June 3, 2024

As investors search for the best opportunities in the Singapore stock market this June, certain sectors and companies stand out due to their strategic positioning and strong financial performance. Let’s explore the top five Singapore stocks that are well-positioned to enhance your investment portfolio.

1. Genting Singapore (GENS)

Genting Singapore Ltd (SGX: G13) has started 2024 on a high note with its Q1 2024 adjusted EBITDA soaring to S$369.5 million, capturing 32.2% of the forecasted annual target. This outstanding performance is reflected in an adjusted EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization) margin of 47.1%, marking significant improvements year-over-year (yoy) and quarter-over-quarter (qoq). Amid expansions in non-gaming divisions and exciting new attractions like Minion Land and the Singapore Oceanarium, Genting Singapore is diversifying its revenue streams and enhancing visitor engagement. With an undervalued trading position more than one standard deviation below its 5-year average EV/EBITDA (Enterprise Value-EBITDA), and a target price of S$1.30, this stock offers a potential upside of 43.6% from its current level.

2. Mapletree Logistics Trust (MLT)

Mapletree Logistics Trust (SGX: M44U) has demonstrated resilience and strategic acumen, navigating market fluctuations with a 1.2% yoy increase in Q4 revenue to S$181 million. The trust is focusing on rejuvenating its portfolio through strategic divestments and reinvestments, particularly in emerging markets like Vietnam and India. Despite a challenging rental landscape in China, MLT is eyeing positive rental reversions across its portfolio. It offers investors a forward 12-month dividend yield of 6.4% and maintains a target price that suggests a steady growth trajectory.

3. Singtel

Singtel (SGX: Z74) is setting the stage for a promising year, bolstered by improvements in its Optus operations and a more efficient capex strategy post-FY25. With a revised dividend policy indicating a payout ratio of 82% for FY25-FY26, Singtel is attractive to those seeking regular income. The stock is geared for growth with a projected revenue CAGR (Compounded Annual Growth Rate) of around 8% for FY24-FY27, backed by diverse service offerings and significant data center investments. Singtel’s strategic maneuvers are expected to drive it towards a target price that underscores its growth potential.

4. Venture Corporation

Despite a slow start in 2024, Venture Corporation Limited (SGX: V03) is expected to rebound, as indicated by management’s optimistic revenue projections for the upcoming quarters. The company’s ongoing customer diversification and expansion into high-tech sectors such as medtech underscore its growth strategy. With a target price of S$15.93, this offers a 14.1% potential upside for investors.

5. Netlink NBN Trust

Netlink NBN Trust (SGX: CJLU), or NLT, in short, remains a top pick for dividend seekers, with a consistent performance in dividend payouts and strategic investments that align with Singapore’s digital infrastructure goals. The trust declared a stable dividend yield of approximately 6% and maintains a target price that reflects its commitment to delivering shareholder value amidst operational challenges.

Conclusion: Crafting a Balanced Portfolio

Investing in these top picks allows investors to strategically balance their portfolios between high-growth potential and reliable stability. Each stock not only excels individually but also complements a diversified investment strategy, mitigating risks and maximizing opportunities across sectors such as hospitality, logistics, telecommunications, and technology. As the landscape evolves, these companies are equipped to provide both robust growth and enduring returns.
