SING Tao Holdings is engaged principally in publishing, with its titles including the Sing Tao Daily and the Hong Kong Standard.


This time last year, SBC Warburg placed a buy on the stock, saying the company would benefit from an increase in advertising revenue.


This proved poor advice as shares have fallen due to concern about the company's outlook - even though earnings enjoyed a surge on speculation major shareholder Sally Aw Sian was selling out.


A year ago, Sing Tao shares traded at $3.65. Now they are at $1.70, having underperformed the Hang Seng Index by 33.04 per cent.
