3 Things You Need To Know About the Singapore Share Market Today

Welcome to Friday afternoon! 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. Hands up those who love your dividends! I know I do. But when you’re out investing for dividends, do you know what to look out for? I’ve noticed that this could be a problem for some, so I’ve tried to plug the gap with a recent piece of mine pointing out important things about dividend-investing that investors should know. Check it out here.

2. If you haven’t already heard, the world’s in a big mess right now. There’s the rout in Chinese stocks, the spread of dangerous diseases like MERs, and the ongoing drama regarding Greece’s status in the Eurozone. With all that happening, it might seem reasonable for investors to want to wait for things to get back to normal before they invest. But, has the world ever been ‘normal’? I’ve dug deep into the topic recently, so you can jump in here to find out more.

3. Blue chip stock Keppel Corporation Limited (SGX: BN4) is amongst some of the highest-yielding shares within the 30 constituents of the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) at the moment; at its current share price of S$8.20, Keppel has a yield of around 5.8%. Will Keppel make for a good income stock? That’s something I’ve looked into recently – hit the link for more of my thoughts.
