Random picks
of 9 public listed Singapore companies to document the corporate disclosures that
span aspectrum
of new and entrenched en bloc buyers over past year, high-end and mass market players, smalland big developers, some more diversified than others in business focus. Whilst there are
multi-factorial justifications
(accounting treatment of fair value gains by different companies, contributions from non-enbloc redevelopment, hot money inflows, etc), I trust the
enormity and obscenity of such numbers
will notbe lost upon you, especially when
contextualized against the time-scale
(eg, the Great Recession in2008/09, the S$2.5bn Resilience Package in 2009/10, etc) set out in my blog posting on 13 Nov 2010.
