3 Things You Need To Know About the Singapore Share Market Today

Welcome to the middle of Friday! Here are three things about Singapore’s share market you might want to look at today and over the weekend.

1. Casino and resort operator Genting Singapore PLC (SGX: G13) has been one of the worst-performing blue chips in 2014. Does that make it a bargain? Or is there more room to fall for the company? Head over to the latest Tug-Of-Fools series, where bull and bear cases for Genting Singapore are presented, to find out more.

2. Lest you forget, a big change to Singapore’s stock market is coming soon – on 19 January 2015, investors in Singapore can finally purchase shares in lot sizes of 100 shares each instead of the current 1,000. When it finally happens, high-priced shares like United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11) and Jardine Cycle & Carriage Limited (SGX: C07) would become a lot more affordable. My colleague Stanley Lim had recently taken a look at some of Singapore’s highest-priced shares in preparation for the lot-size changes, so check it out here.

3. I’d let you in on a little secret of mine. I’ve always wondered how Warren Buffett would have invested if he were Singaporean. What local shares would catch the eye of one of the world’s best investors? Turns out, I’m not the only one who has ever thought about it – Stanley has done so too. Jump in here to find out what he has to say on the topic.
