    This is usually what happens when you have an engineer in a job that’s absolutely and totally unrelated to engineering !!!

    Suppose one can always learn on the job and blag their way through, … so long as no one notices that engineering will not prepare one for billion dollar investment losses !!!

    ANTERO RESOURCES CORP IS IN THE SHALE GAS BUSINESS, I will never touch any of these toxic investment even though I like mining investments.

    Why?

    Shale gas fracking business is a GIANT CAPITAL EATING MACHINE in real life, the operating cash flow from successive depleting productivity (with each extraction of gas/condensate) of wells drilled/fracturing does NOT pay for the set-up costs of the next drilling platform.

    Given current depressed oil and gas pricing, MORE LOSSES for all shale gas business can be expected. Bankers won’t lend any money for such loss-making misadventure, so listed entities either get (read suck in) more equity from shareholders or float high-yield (read junk) bonds (just like Hyflux wonder high return bonds) to fund continuiing operation waiting for better times that is unlikely to come.

    Hi,

    It depends on the objective of the SWF.

    It seems to me that Temasick is really seeking control and not investing for income.

    Low earnings leads to cheap share values meaning you can buy more of the shares than if the share value is high.

    So there is this need to control major companies worldwide. Is that appropriate for a SWF? That is the question the citizens should ask.

    I had a dream…that a Temasick representative run a SkillFuture-approved trading course to teach the public how to trade with the fail-proof CPF-boosting “Reverse Midas Touch” strategy!

  • Where's my CPF savings?:

    Well, on the surface it looks like an irrational decision but business strategists usually consider many impinging factors, not all of them purely monetary in nature: eg. geo-political interests, corporate dominance, national revenue (obviously), CEO remuneration ….

    @ C’est la vie:

    It’s not only b’cos she’s an engineer. It’s pillage and plunder lah.

    Chee Soon Juan in no position to take on the whites……..he hasn’t got it lah. Dat’s y he got rejected by Bukit Batok voters…..voters not stupid like what u & many think.

    Ask Chee, for all the supposed democracy in South Korea, why is the Korean Won the weakest asian currency?

    Productivity to be blamed in Singapore? What is Chee & SDP solution? What’s the problem with a rentier S’pore economy?

    Does Chee and/or SDP know how the Singapore economy work?

    Time to face up to the real problem – which is the lack of leadership & the poor leadership.

    Philip Ang might like to do a bit more research as to the paper loss on Temasek’s investment in Bayer…….paper loss of 50% S$2.6 billion.

    @ Where’s my CPF savings

    IT DOES NOT MATTER WHAT THEY DO – after they return my CPF money at 55 (which they didn’t, of course).
