Deciphering Corporate Actions: What are Corporate Actions, The Types of Corporate Actions and Dividends?

What are Corporate Actions?

 

Corporate Actions are events implemented by a company. These actions have to be approved by the company's board of directors, and shareholders are empowered to vote on specified proposed corporate actions.

Corporate actions affect preferred shareholders, common shareholders and bondholders.

Shareholders are required to respond to certain corporate actions such as dividends, right issues and merger and acquisitions cash offers.

Deciphering Corporate Actions: What is Ex-Date, Record Date & Date Payable?

Deciphering Corporate Actions: What is Ex-Date, Record Date & Date Payable?

As a remisier for nearly 8 years, I realised that investors and traders who are starting out tend to ask a similar set of questions. The topic on deciphering corporate actions has popped up multiple times, and I have decided to compile the information to educate the folks out there.

In this post, we will be covering on 2 main areas:

  1. Where do I access companies' information?
  2. What is Ex-Date, Record Date and Date Payable?

At last.... I no longer need to sound like a broken record.

Market Update (SG & US) with Live Trades shown

Market Update (SG & US) with Live Trades shown

Hi Community,

I have decided to value-add by posting whenever I feel there is an upcoming trend change in the major markets.

This is in comparison to doing up a "monthly" update, where there can be no significant movement in a month, or having a highly volatile environment where I will be doing up more posts to keep you guys updated.

Please note that I will be showing some of my live trades that I have done with the community, using the $10k challenge I have setup 2nd quarter of 2016.

This is to show that you can be consistent and be rewarded even with a small capital, as long as you take action with a systematic trading strategy.

Monthly Update – May + Live Trading Portfolio

Monthly Update – May + Live Trading Portfolio

Hi Community,

It's been a while since the last update, being overseas (I've lost count the number of trips I took) and serving the nation.

I was glad to receive many calls in the process, asking for my views on the market etc, and am heartened to know that all of you found the market updates useful.

The past few months had been a humbling experience for me, missing the 1st quarter of SG / US rally, which could have potentially increased my portfolio significantly by another 20-25%, and having to cut loss on a couple of trades when the pullback wasn't deep enough. Well, shit happens and I will just wait for the next opportunity.

Let's get down to it.
