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

Welcome to Wednesday! Here are three things about Singapore’s share market you might want to look at today and throughout the week.

1. Share prices of companies in the oil and gas industry have suffered of late with the decline in the price of oil. But before you jump onto any of those shares thinking you’ve find found a bargain, you might want to learn more about the basics of the oil services industry.

I’ve recently prepared a primer on the topic and you can read more about it here and here. Companies such as Keppel Corporation Limited (SGX: BN4)SembCorp Marine Ltd (SGX: S51)Ezra Holdings Limited (SGX: 5DN), and Ezion (SGX: 5ME) were discussed and investors can know more about what to look out for with the businesses of those four shares.

2. Ever wondered how you can win in the game of investing? It’s something my colleague Chin Hui Leong has thought long and hard about. Check out his thoughts in here. Hint: It has a lot to do with managing our psychology.

3. Looking for some investing analysis for individual companies? My colleague Chong Ser Jing had recently taken a look at whether the fast-growing tourism-asset owner and operator Straco Corporation Ltd (SGX: S85) would be able to continue its business growth, so check out his thoughts here. As for me, I wanted to see if the high-yielding Aspial Corporation (SGX: A30) actually has a sustainable dividend – you can check out my take on the topic in here.
