1. Investing quotes from the masters can be a great, succinct way to remind us about what’s truly important in the subject. I’ve recently shared three of my favourites – check them out here.

2. Ezra Holdings Limited (SGX: 5DN) and Noble Group Limited (SGX: N21) are two shares in Singapore which have seen their share prices fall really hard lately.
