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

1. We’re nearing the end of the earnings season, but that doesn’t mean we need to stop learning about how the various companies in Singapore are faring. Publicly-listed companies in Singapore are under regulatory obligations to release documents about their quarterly or half-yearly financial results. But, there are some which go above and beyond that and share webcasts of their earnings presentations to analysts.

These presentations often contain great insights and anecdotes about a company’s business which may not necessarily be found in the earnings documents. For this reason, my colleague Chin Hui Leong has a habit of watching or listening to the webcasts. Check out his notes on SPH REIT’s (SGX: SK6U) latest webcast.

2. Ever wondered what’s the last asset billionaire investor Warren Buffett would want to buy now? (Hint: It’s not stocks.) My colleague David Kuo had given the answer recently in a clever article, so you can jump in here to find out more.

3. Speaking about great investors, Tom Gayner may not be as well-known as Buffett, but he does have some serious investing chops. How serious? Try this: Gayner’s stock market investments has achieved compound annual returns of 11.3% over the past 15 years, nearly triple the annual gains of the U.S. market index, the S&P 500. Earlier today, Hui Leong had shared two key lessons he’s picked up from Gayner that can help make us all better investors. Check out Hui Leong’s thoughts here.
