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. My colleague Stanley Lim had recently pointed out that Chief Financial Officers in Singapore are overwhelmingly bearish about the prospects on earnings growth for business in Singapore. Are they right? What should investors do about this? For more on Stanley’s thoughts on the subject, hit the link here.

2. Blue chip stock Sembcorp Marine Ltd (SGX: S51) has a dividend yield of 4.7% currently. That’s higher than the average yield that it and the rest of its blue-chip brethren – the 30 shares which make up the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI), Singapore’s market barometer – offers. Is Sembcorp Marine an attractive dividend stock with its high yield? That would depend on its business fundamentals and it’s an issue I’ve dived into earlier today. Check it out here.

3. There are lots of things to worry about in the global economy at the moment. Have these worries caused market participants to be really fearful, and thus create bargain opportunities? Stanley has given his take on the topic, so you can jump in here to find out more.
