Genting Singapore PLC is an investment holding company which belongs to the Genting Group. Just like the Genting Group, Genting Singapore (Genting SP) also deals with the business of integrated resorts, their development, planning, marketing and providing different services to these resorts like sales provisions, information technology provisions, managing the operations and handling expansions too. The firm is trying to establish its niche in the stock markets so that the Genting Singapore Share Price raise a level above. There are many investors who are holding their shares with a hope that long term holding may help them incur some profits.
But with time, Genting Singapore has started getting competitors. Marina Bay Sands is its biggest rival and Macau is also stealing a lot of business from Singapore. For the past two years, Genting Singapore is trying to acquire and incorporate various hotels and firms so that there is demand for the Genting Singapore shares. It has acquired the Blue Shell International Ltd and also has acquired 20% holding in Resorts World Inc. Pte. Ltd. The various businesses incorporated by Genting Singapore are Resorts World Properties III Pte Ltd, Tamerton Pte Ltd, Prestelle Pte Ltd and Orionbest Pte Ltd. The latest reports of the third quarter performance of Genting Singapore have been released.
Genting Singapore’s performance in the third quarter was a much discussed issue throughout the year especially after the disastrous second quarter of 2011. However, the company has definitely done better than the second quarter but has managed an increase of only 7% in its performance as compared to last year. The adjusted earnings for quarter three are S$375.5 million. Since it has performed a little better than last year, the Genting Singapore share prices may enjoy a little light of the day. Most investors also state that the company has not paid dividends as yet and hence the faith in the stocks reduces.
However, market analysts have repeatedly encouraged investors to opt for Genting Singapore Stocks. According to them, a supply driven industry can gain profits anytime. With few expansion plans in the loop, Genting Singapore will also be able to get back in to the battle with its rival Marina Bay Sands. The stocks of the company have faced a downfall by 1.2% in this year but the performance of the third quarter may prove to be beneficial in raising the value. The rise and fall of stocks is a regular market trend and hence when dealing with supply driven businesses, it is best to retain the stocks for a long term.
Genting Singapore also plans to start the operations of its popular ride Battlestar Galactica which were suspended earlier to attract more crowds. The theme park tickets in 2010 were all sold out and thus the integrated resorts were definitely doing good business. It is only the S$4.19 billion debt that they had taken for its Sentosa Park that is still to be repaid and hence is causing the turbulences. However the Genting Singapore stock prices have definitely found a place in the major listings of the Singapore Stock Exchange.
