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 for the rest of the week.

1. Noble Group Limited (SGX: N21) and Iceberg Research’s tussle continues. After the release of Iceberg’s third report last Saturday, I ran through it and summarized some of the key issues highlighted in the report. You can read more about it in here and here.

2. Porter’s Five Forces is an important analysis tool that many investors use to better understand the strength and weakness of a company. My colleague Chin Hui Leong has been penning a series of articles, breaking down each of Porter’s Five Forces. Here they are: the threat of new competitors; the bargaining power of buyers; the bargaining of power of suppliers; the level of competitive rivalry with the industry; and the threat of substitutes.

3. With the SPDR STI ETF (SGX: ES3) – an exchange-traded fund which tracks the fundamentals of the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) – more than doubling from its March 2009 lows of S$1.50 to S$3.41 today, the market is certainly no longer as cheap as it used to be back then.

In fact, most of the obvious bargains in the market might even have been long gone already. But, does that mean we should avoid the market completely now? My colleague David Kuo had recently dug into the issue; jump in here for more of his thoughts.
