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

Welcome to Monday evening! Here are three things about Singapore’s share market you might want to look at today and over the rest of the week.

1. Earnings season in Singapore is progressing in earnest. Take a look at the latest results from Frasers Centrepoint Trust (SGX: J69U), Suntec Real Estate Investment Trust (SGX: T82U), and Keppel Corporation Limited (SGX: BN4) below:

2. Warren Buffett once said that it’s “far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price.” That’s a good description of what investing is.

But at the same time, we shouldn’t completely dismiss the profit-potential of unloved companies at cheap prices. SMRT Corporation Ltd (SGX: S53) is one such example and it has clocked a gain of more than 60% since it hit its 2014-bottom of around S$1.00 per share in April that year. My colleague Stanley Lim had taken a closer look at how the firm managed to conjure up such stupendous gains and what investors can learn from the experience. So, jump in here to find out more.

3. Buffett’s an investing icon and there’s plenty that investors can learn from him. One of his trademarks is to invest in companies with long-lived and boring industries. The business developments of such companies might put some investors to sleep, but there’s a real good reason why Buffett chooses to invest this way. Stanley had recently dived deeper into the topic, so you can check it out here.
