Three Shares That Lost to the Market Today

StockMarketBoardThe Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) inched up 0.30% to 3,318 points after a tepid showing yesterday. There were 11 winners which meant nearly twice as many losers.

Global Logistic Properties (SGX: MC0) lost ground as its shares slipped 1.5% to $2.61. The logistics facility provider recently announced that it had pre-leased 977,000 sq. ft. of space to Deppon Logistics in China. GLP has been busy getting customers to sign up for space as a total of 535,000 sq. ft. had been leased since February. Shareholders should welcome the progress following recent headlines that a major shareholder sold a 12.5% stake in the company.

Elsewhere, GuocoLeisure (SGX: B16) dropped 2.75% to $0.89. The investment holding company has interests in hotels, casinos and the oil & gas industry. Even though it is listed in Singapore and New Zealand, around 80% of the company’s  assets of US$1.6b are in the United Kingdom. GuocoLeisure’s second quarter results saw a year-on-year 3.2% decline in quarterly profit to US$12.1m.

In the transport sector, SMRT Corporation (SGX: S53) was unchanged at $1.54. The local transport company, which runs trains, buses and taxis, warned last week that it expects a net loss in the fourth quarter. However, it said it should remain profitable for the full year. The company’s shares have dropped 2.5% following the announcement.
