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

Welcome to Wednesday evening! Here are three things about Singapore’s stock market and investing in general that you might want to look at today and over the rest of the week.

1. Banks can be some of the most complicated companies to analyse. But, Singapore’s considered to be the financial hub of Southeast Asia and is also home to some of the region’s largest banks in DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05), Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited (SGX: O39), and United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11).

In light of that, it may be important for investors to at least have a basic grasp of what to look out for when they’re studying bank stocks. My colleague Chong Ser Jing had recently penned two articles that walks you through the key numbers of a bank to analyse. They can be found in here and here.

2. The stock market has fallen hard over the past month. Where are all the bargains? According to Ser Jing, luxury watch retailer Hour Glass Ltd (SGX: AGS) might be one. Jump in here to find out more!

3. IHH Healthcare Bhd (SGX: Q0F) might be one of the largest healthcare groups in the world. But that does not mean it has stopped thinking about how it can grow its business. Where is IHH Healthcare investing in now? I’ve looked at this topic recently. Check out here for my thoughts.
