3 Things You Need To Know about The Companies in Singapore’s Service Industry This Week

Welcome to Sunday! Here are three things about the companies in Singapore’s service industry that you might want to look at today and over the rest of next week.

1. BreadTalk Group Limited (SGX: 5DA) has been one of the fastest growing food and beverage (F&B) companies in Singapore both in terms of its business and share price returns. From 2005 to 2014, the company’s profits have spiked from S$1.0 million to S$12.2 million. Meanwhile, its shares have generated a total return of 656% since the start of 2005 after accounting for reinvested dividends.

Will BreadTalk still be able to deliver great returns for its investors? That would depend on how strong its business is and that’s something that my colleague Chin Hui Leong had explored recently. Check out his thoughts here.

2. Hospitality businesses are another important part of the service industry in Singapore. As an owner of high quality hotels situated in prime tourist areas – examples being Orchard Hotel and Novotel Singapore – CDL Hospitality Trusts (SGX: J85) is an integral part of the hospitality sector here. My colleague David Kuo had recently pointed out three things to like about the trust’s business. Jump in here to find out more.

3. Kingsmen Creatives Ltd (SGX: 5MZ) might not be a well-known company, but it has been a strong performer. Over the past 10 years since the start of 2005, the company, which is a player in the MICE (meetings, incentives, conventions, and exhibitions) industry, has generated a total return of more than 1,700% after accounting for reinvested dividends.

Hui Leong had recently dug into the strengths and weaknesses of Kingsmen Creatives’ business, so you can check it out here.
