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

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

1. Tourism asset owner Straco Corporation Ltd (SGX: S85) saw its shares jump by 16.5% from S$0.79 last Wednesday to S$0.92 this Monday. With such strong gains in so short a time (the firm’s currently at S$0.90), is there still value to be found for investors? My colleague Chong Ser Jing had taken a look at the topic, so you can check out his thoughts here.

2. As investors, knowing what to avoid is often as important (or maybe even more important) as knowing what to buy. To that point, the airline industry is one which investors ought to be careful with. Jump in here for my colleague Chin Hui Leong’s deeper dive into the subject.

3. Do you ever have the urge of wanting to invest in high-flying tech companies? Here’s the thing: Instead of chasing after the seemingly exciting startups, old fogeys like Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SGX: Z74) and Singapore Press Holdings Limited (SGX: T39) might be an interesting way to give you exposure to that space.
