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. The act of valuing a business is important. But, just how important? My colleague Chin Hui Leong had recently penned a great piece on the importance of trying to value a business and just why that act can help us find winning shares to buy. Jump in here to find out more.

2. Second Chance Properties Ltd (SGX: 528) gave its investors (that includes me!) a bad time yesterday after its fiscal second-quarter earnings spooked the market and caused its shares to fall by as much as 7.9%. Are the company’s results really that bad? My colleague Stanley Lim had taken a closer look at Second Chance’s latest financial report card and you can check out his thoughts here.

3. Keppel Corporation Limited (SGX: BN4) made some waves in the market in January when it announced its intention to privatise its majority-owned subsidiary Keppel Land Ltd (SGX: K17). Yesterday, Keppel Corp announced that its offer to buy up shares of Keppel Land has finally ended. In the same announcement, it was revealed that the former now owns some 95.1% of the latter. Keppel Land shares have since been suspended from trading and the company will be de-listed soon.

With Keppel Land soon to join its fold, what’s next for Keppel Corp? Stanley has shared his thoughts on the topic, so check them out here.
