Hi,

I realise that there is a SIA 200. Are they eligible for dividends when announced?

And do they become 1 lot if a buyer buys 5 sets of SIA 200 and immediately are eligible for any corporate action?

SIA 200 = 200 shares per lot transacted on SGX.

Other than that, they are no different for the broad lot 1000 SIA shares. So yes, they are deinitely eligible for dividends or other corporate actions.

CDP does not differentitate between SIA 200 and SIA in yr CDP account. If you buy 2 lots of SIA 200 shares, it will be reflected in your account as 400 SIA shares.

i feel sia is a very dangerous stock. Anytime, dun say crash. Just wing break or passengers die will sent the stock down and SIA engineering also cannot escape. Moreover, the competition is very competitive. Not that lucrative as you think. Last time SQ got so many freighter now still got a lot parking at the dessert.
Every stock is dangerous. In fact, venturing into stocks is dangerous.
But the yield proves irresistible.

Sometimes it is cyclical. Somedays, SIA will be very hot. Then cold for few days. STI might climb 20pts, but SIA might be flat.
Like KepCorp, these few weeks it is hot. But there will be cold turkey days.
I'm not good in reading market sentiments. So, just have to be patient.

Heng suay kind of thing. Buy in the stock and hope it will rise.

actualyl i agree with itedino, the level of volatility and downside risk are higher due to the nature of the industry
generally, i avoid the airline industry...

there are better stuff to buy out there which gives similar profit

what a silly remark

i feel sia is a very dangerous stock. Anytime, dun say crash. Just wing break or passengers die will sent the stock down and SIA engineering also cannot escape. Moreover, the compeition is very competitive. Not that lucrative as you think. Last time SQ got so many freighter now still got a lot parking at the dessert.
SIA founded 1972, 30yrs airline company based on historical data only have 2 fatal accidents SQ006 Taiwan and silkair MI185.

Qantas founded on 1920 has zero fatal accidents.

This is a oil based commodity play, if oil is low this stock is high, if oil is high this
stock is low. oil is high now becuz of gaddafi, similar to the IRAQ war.

International Air Transport Association (IATA) indicates that by 2014 there will be 3.3billion air travelers, up by 800 million from the 2.5 billion in 2009. By 2014 international aviation will handle 38 million tonnes of air cargo, up 12.5 million tonnes from the 26 million tonnes carried in 2009.

The future is very bright especially in Asia Pacific where SIA is.

based on that information, i will think that SATS is better than airlines
more cargo and travellers means better business for SATS and it is a virtual monopoly with exception to its food business (as a nsman, i cant say i love SFI).

Totally agreed with what you said. I wouldn't say its a oil based commodity play, but oil price does eat into its profits. Eat into Profits. So its a matter of how much it earns. Some airliners are bleeding money but not SIA. In fact its one of those money making airliners in the world.
