3 Things You Need To Know About Singapore’s Consumer Market This Week

Welcome to Sunday afternoon! Here are three things about companies in the consumer market and investing in general that you might want to look at today and over the rest of the week.

1. My colleague Chin Hui Leong has a nice series of articles that analyses the return on equity of many different companies. The return on equity is an important financial metric as it can tell us a lot about how good management and the business is. This week, he did that with OSIM International Ltd (SGX: O23), a purveyor of massage chairs and lifestyle products. Check it out here.

2. The consumer confidence index can give us useful information about how consumers in Singapore are feeling at the moment. It can also give us clues on how Singapore’s economy might do. So, where does consumer confidence in Singapore stand at the moment? My colleague David Kuo has taken a look at the issue recently; jump in here for more.

3. Eu Yan Sang International Ltd (SGX: E02), a retailer of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) products is currently near a 52-week low. Is the company a bargain now? This is something I’ve looked at a few days ago, so you can hit the link for more of my thoughts. .
