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 that you might want to look at today and over the rest of the week.

1. As the saying goes, “when it rains, it pours.” Following Iceberg Research’s criticisms of its business starting in February, commodities trader Noble Group Limited (SGX: N21) has found itself caught in the crosshairs of short-seller Muddy Waters Research.

While Iceberg claims to not have any positions on Noble Group’s shares, Muddy Waters openly declared last Wednesday that it has a short (when you’re short, you’re betting that a company’s share price will decrease) position on Noble Group. At the same time, Muddy Waters also released a 14-page report sharing its thoughts on why it thinks Noble Group’s shares will fall. My colleague Stanley Lim has shared his thoughts on Muddy Waters’ latest report and you can check it out here.

2. The Annual General Meeting (AGM) season would be upon us soon. If you’d be attending any AGMs during this period, then you should check out Stanley’s recent piece on the questions you’d need to ask during the meeting.

3. There are no shortage of companies with strong Hong Kong/China links in Singapore’s stock market. Some of the biggest ones include Hutchison Port Hldg Trust (SGX: NS8U), Hongkong Land Holdings Limited (SGX: H78), Global Logistic Properties Ltd (SGX: MC0), and Wilmar International Limited (SGX: F34).

For those unaware, Hong Kong’s stock market has been enjoying a strong rally over the past few weeks, putting on double-digit gains. Would the aforementioned quartet be able to enjoy any strong gains too given the current situation in Hong Kong? Stanley has recently dug into the topic, so you can jump in here to find out more.
